Funnyman Jim Carrey Paints New Bloody Portrait Of NRA As ‘National Disgrace’

This time, his bullseye is on the NRA (National Rifle Association) and its new president, Oliver North, reported the HuffPost on Tuesday. He shared the caustic painting with his social media fans on Twitter. His artwork and political activism have made him quite popular there with more than 18.5 million followers and on the rise. Check out his rendering of North and the NRA here.

Carrey refers to the NRA as a “national disgrace,” and his new painting depicts Oliver North with a large snake coiled about his neck and chest. Above the portrait are the large initials of the NRA in dripping blood. The comedian-turned-political artist calls greed the venom that is killing America and suggested that the NRA organization is full of sadists and scoundrels. So far, the painting has received some 60,000 “likes” on Twitter.

Carrey didn’t stop there; he also unleashed a blistering portrait of President Trump’s new personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani. He pokes fun at Giuliani’s teeth, saying the former New York City mayor only bothered to bleach his upper teeth. The painting depicts that Carrey observation.

The funnyman with the sarcastic stroke of the paintbrush also rendered a portrait of Vice President Mike Pence. He refers to Pence as “Psycho Mike-O.”

Carrey seems to have retired from Hollywood to concentrate on his painting.

Author and Journalist Tom Wolfe Dead at 88

The country lost one of its greatest writing pioneers of recent times when author and journalist Tom Wolfe passed away on Monday. The author of the bestsellers “The Right Stuff” and “The Bonfire of the Vanities” died after being hospitalized with an infection in New York City, according to a statement by his agent Lynn Nesbit. He was 88 years old.

Wolfe was best known for introducing the literary style now known as New Journalism. Employed in non-fiction pieces, this style relies on detailed descriptions which come as a result of the authors immersing themselves in their subjects. Through the use of extensive dialogue and various points of view, authors are able to more fully detail their writings.

Born in Richmond, Virginia in 1930, Wolfe eventually received a degree from Washington and Lee University where he honed his writing skills as sports editor of the college newspaper and co-founder of the literary magazine, Shenandoah. Wolfe went on to earn a Ph.D. at Yale University. Wolfe began his career as a reporter for the Springfield Union, eventually working his way up to the Washington Post and the New York Herald-Tribune.

Wolfe dabbled in a variety of writing forms, from newspaper reporting to non-fiction to fiction. The highly-acclaimed “The Bonfire of the Vanities” was his first attempt at fiction writing and the book went on to become a major motion picture, solidifying Wolfe’s place as one of America’s greatest writers.

Why some financial management firms will fall according to Shervin Pishevar

Shervin Pishevar went on a rampant tweet storm containing 50 consecutive tweets. In the tweets, he did not hold back any of his negative opinions towards the state of the financial markets in USA. Most of his tweets reveal his deepest sentiments regarding the economy. For over 21 hours, he tried to analyze financial institutions, governments, and leading firms, some of which he is a top investor.

 

The reason behind this escapade remains unexplained since he did not reveal why he did it, but this took place after he abandoned a lawsuit against a firm he had accused of smearing his name. Shervin Pishevar’s tweets caused a bubble of excitement among his followers on Twitter with most of them joining the debate. Those with contrary opinion did not spare him of their snide remarks either.

 

The significance of his remarks supersedes the reason he went on a rant. In his tweets, he touched a loathsome subject that concerns the fall of major managed future funds. This is a sensitive topic given that most ordinary investors rely on such firms to invest on their behalf.

 

Shervin Pishevar argued that most of the funds that go underground are leveraged. In simple terms, the firm has more debt than capital. Besides this, some firms tend to lean towards low volatility. This means that the value of the security changes value at a sturdy rate. This risk averse behavior contributes toward the popularity of such firms, which keeps on building up.

 

Shervin Pishevar alludes to the disorder in the volatility index to explain why managed future funds could be at risk. The volatility index is a term that refers to the expected fluctuation in prices of security options. As such, it is only a prediction that is not based on any concrete data. Shervin argues that this, coupled with asset prices that follow the flawed volatility index, could lead to a fall in some fund management firms.

 

In the tweet storm, Shervin Pishevar also reveals that he expects firms that enjoy monopoly powers to fail. He maintains that such firms must collapse if different corporations are to come into place.
