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.

Controversy Surfaces Just Days Before Royal Wedding

It would not be a proper royal wedding without a wee bit of controversy. Just days before Prince Harry and his fiance Meghan Markle are set to walk down the aisle at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, reports are surfacing that Meghan’s father will not be joining them on the special day.

Meghan’s estranged half-sister, Samantha Markle, told the media that her father has suffered a heart attack. Samantha told a British television station that Thomas Markle was stressed after reports that he allegedly staged photos just days before the wedding. The staged photos were Samantha’s idea, designed to improve her father’s image.

The controversy surrounding Meghan’s family has been brewing since the couple announced their engagement last fall. Thomas told the media that he will be skipping the wedding, as he does not want to cause his daughter any undue embarrassment as she marries into the royal family. Kensington Palace released an official statement on Monday evening, acknowledging that this is a personal moment for both Harry and Meghan and that the two ask for respect and understanding as they put the final preparations on their wedding day.

If Thomas does not make the trip over the pond for the wedding, Meghan will still be accompanied by her mother, Doria Ragland. Meghan plans to stay the night before the wedding with her mother at the luxurious Cliveden House Hotel, while Prince Harry bunks up with his brother and best man, Prince William, at the Coworth Park Hotel.

The Problem with Work Schedules

Sometimes life can bite us where it hurts, and we are not prepared for it when it happens. We never marry someone else with the idea that the marriage is not going to last, and, if we did know that there would be much trouble, we would never get married in the first place. What only makes divorce worse is knowing that there is nothing truly wrong with the relationship; it just ends because neither person is able to have the time to commit to it. This is the case with Chris Pratt and his late wife Anna Faris, as found in an article from the Huffington Post (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/chris-pratt-gets-real-about-anna-faris-split-divorce-sucks_us_5ad8976fe4b0e4d0715de160).

Chris Pratt is mostly known for his portrayal of Star-Lord in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy films and also for his role in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel coming out soon for the Summer. When asked by the Huffington Post about his crashed relationship with Anna Faris, Pratt simply said that “divorce sucks”.

The couple shares a five year old son together, who undoubtedly will feel some form of repercussion from the split. Pratt and Faris had been married for over eight years and it was a surprise that they were divorcing. The cause for the divorce was ultimately the work schedule of the two actors and how they could never truly find the time to commit to one another. They quickly grew apart and became estranged. There have been rumors about Pratt dating Olivia Munn, which were later disproved.

Gibson and His War on Mediocrity

War movies have always been a staple for fans of both violence and drama. The depictions of heroism and courage often portrayed in these movies help us as viewers to understand how war can be a terrible yet powerful tool to inform us on the decisions that are made and how it can influence the future. This is the case for the upcoming movie Destroyer, a WW2 film set during the Battle of Okinawa and directed by long time fan favorite Mel Gibson. Gibson is better known for his past films Hacksaw Ridge, Braveheart, We Were Soldiers, as well as other pieces of historical fiction.

While Gibson has been working on increasing his presence as an actor after a period of hiatus, he has decided to return to Hollywood in order to work on his directorial filming as well. As outlined on Screenrant (https://screenrant.com/mel-gibson-destroyer-director/), The upcoming film is said to star Gibson’s own long term girlfriend Rosalind Ross and will undoubtedly be another masterpiece to add to Mel Gibson’s already impressive directorial resume. If the film is going to be anything like what we saw with Hacksaw Ridge, a movie about a pacifist during the war in the Pacific, then we as moviegoers are in for a treat.

It is not yet known when Destroyer will be released. Cast information, as well as the more detailed forms of information, are still cloudy. What we know is that Mel Gibson has shocked us before with his work and will again.

Trump Partnership Has Helped Hussain Sajwani And DAMAC

At a time when the relative success and failure of U.S. president Donald Trump are being eyed by media outlets across the planet, one man remains steadfast in his belief in the positive way his life has been changed for the better by a business relationship with the New York real estate mogul. At the 2018 DAVOS event, Sajwani stated his belief in the positive effect a business partnership with the Trump Organization has had in his own brand and the real estate markets of the Middle East.

Hussain Sajwani has been left with little doubt his own success as a business leader is being assisted by the arrival on the scene of the Trump Organization now being led by the sons of the President. Two golf courses are the first real estate projects the Trump brand and the Dubai-based developer have undertaken together; Sajwani has stated the halt to foreign projects President Trump placed on himself and his brand will remain in place for as long the Administration occupies The White House but Sajwani is already planning for the day the business partners can resume their work together.

The DAMAC group headed by Hussain Sajwani (@HussainSajwaniOfficial) has a long history dating back to the 1980s when the group was founded as a supplier of catering services to oil and gas exploration companies in the Middle East and later the military. DAMAC once again changed tack in the 1990s when tourists from the former Soviet Union began flooding into the Middle East and saw Hussain Sajwani open a series of mid-range hotels to meet the needs of an expanding market.

Hussain Sajwani saw his fortunes change forever when in 2001 the government of the United Arab Emirates decided to allow foreign investors to own property and saw the birth of Hussain Sajwani’s luxury real estate empire. In the past, the majority of the projects completed by DAMAC have been focused on Dubai but the expansion of the brand into London is one which many hope will create a new era of success for the brand.

Friendly Neighborhood Spoiling Spider Man

It is no secret in Hollywood that certain celebrities have a hard time keeping secrets to themselves. One such actor that has an extremely difficult time not spoiling anything for fans is Tom Holland, the young British actor who plays Peter Parker/Spiderman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. The most recent film in the series in Avengers: Infinity War, where Holland and his fellow super heroes must battle the all powerful galactic warlord Thanos and attempt to stop him from collecting infinitely strong stones to help him take control of the universe. On opening night Tom Holland, along with a collection of other important figures from the franchise, surprised moviegoers in Los Angeles. It was here that Tom Holland, as a way to say “hello” to his fans, made the mistake of spoiling the end of the film but uttering a few short words.

While the words Holland stated will not be included here in order to spare you from also being spoiled, it should be noted that this was not the first time that Kevin Feige and the Russo brothers were worried that Tom would make this mistake. It is known throughout Hollywood that Tom Holland has a history of opening his mouth at incorrect times. In order to stop the leaking of information during filming the Russo’s actually refused to let Holland read the entire script. They were too worried that the young actor would spoil the entire movie before it was even released.
