Hurricane Harvey, which struck in 2017, inflicted damage of $125 billion in the state of Texas. The floods that resulted have inundated hundreds of thousands of houses, which forced 30,000 to get displaced. American lost their lives and their homes. In the wake of the disaster, Stream Energy used their earnings from energy sales and was among the first companies to fund to fund the recovery and to ease the financial burden of its customers.

Stream Energy is one of the biggest companies in the United States which offers connected life services and direct selling services. They offer wireless, energy, and home services. The Dallas-based company was established in 2005 and generated more than $8 billion in revenue since then. Their services are available in multiple states, and they have been named in the Top 10 Most Trusted Retail Electric Providers in the state of Texas.

In order to formalize their ongoing philanthropic activities throughout the state of Texas and throughout the United States, Stream established their own charity foundation, “Stream Cares”, even though launching a philanthropy branch is somewhat of a new concept. The company has engaged in philanthropic activities in the past as well, having a long-term relationship with the Red Cross and with Habitat for Humanity.

A particular cause that Stream associates have a deep care for is homelessness, as the company routinely tracks the level of homelessness in the state of Dallas. Stream Energy have been working together for over 4 years. The partnership resulted in the “Splash for Hope” event, which is designed to bring children to a local water park, allowing the company to offer them money and supplies. In addition, Hope Supply Co. provides diapers, school supplies and clothing for homeless children.

Another case where Stream was involved was in the aftermath of the tornadoes that hit North Texas in 2016. Stream Energy worked with the Salvation Army and raised thousands of dollars in order to provide help to tornado victims who lost their businesses or their homes. Stream matched the funds and doubled the donations that were brought by associates.

Funnyman, national icon and radio personality, Charlamagne Tha God is no stranger to controversy, or controversial subjects. All of which undoubtedly explains why he feels right at home inviting rapper, producer and founder of the record label, GOOD MUSIC, Kanye West, (not a stranger to controversy either) to have a mental health-specific conversation with him at the New York City Town Hall, on October 17,7:00 PM.

The invitation follows in the wake of Kanye’s infamous Saturday Night Live appearance, wearing his now famous “Trump hat,” claiming he was bullied for the attire choice. It also follows some easily misunderstood political tweets put forth by the rapper, in which he argued first for abolishing the thirteenth constitutional amendment, which outlaws slavery, before amending his comments to suggest amending the amendment instead. Visit This Page for additional information.

Arguable political fodder and celebrity brouhahas are bread and butter for Charlamagne Tha God, who regularly co-hosts the talk/ music fest known as the, “Breakfast Club,” on IHeartRadio, wherein he makes pointed jabs at the pratfalls of celebrities. Add in the point that Kanye is a fellow media celebrity, it’s not at all strange that Tha God would ask Kanye, who’s graced the Charlemagne Tha God hot seat before, for yet another sit down.

Charlamagne Tha God and Kanye West have addressed the issue of mental health before, in the wake of the celebrity’s 2016 canceled tour, stopped reputedly due to a mental breakdown on the part of Kanye West. The slated October 17 interview promises to address Kanye’s issues as well as the larger issues of PTSD, anxiety and therapy. Also on the discussion menu will be Charlamagne’s new book; “Shook Up: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me.”

Meeting specifics have been posted on Instagram and followers of Charlamagne Tha God and Kanye West can get tickets by clicking on https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe/10336414.

It was not that long ago that if you had used the words “Bitcoin” or “cryptocurrency” you would probably have gotten a blank stare. Now there are financial analysts who are speaking almost every day about some of the popular cryptocurrencies and their current price action. Companies, such as Southridge Capital, have come to realize that cryptocurrencies are becoming part of our everyday lives and they are here to stay. One of the attractions originally to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is that they are not regulated by a central bank and can function without regulation. Satoshi Nakamoto is the mysterious person behind the invention of Bitcoin and almost nothing is known about him.

 

The rise of Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies started off gradual. There were merchants who saw the potential of this peer-to-peer payment process and they began to accept it as a means of exchange. Eventually, the cryptocurrency would become one of the most popular assets to speculate in. Although most people still had no understanding of Bitcoin, hot money was pouring in fast and driving the entire crypto market to sky high-valuations, eventually hitting $300 billion in a short period of time. The largest institutions are looking for ways to adopt Bitcoin for everyday use for their clients. It is the Blockchain technology that enables Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies to be unregulated. The CME Group was one of the first financial companies that took a step further and made it so their clients could speculate with Bitcoin in the future market. Cryptocurrencies are still in the early stages, however, companies such as Southridge Capital are betting big that there are good times ahead for the Cryptocurrencies.
