“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” – Penn, Or Pariah?

During his first interview regarding the new book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, Sean Penn discussed how he met the original creator of the manuscript for the book. Sean Penn goes on to tell Stephen Colbert that he met the author during a party while he was in the “passion pit” area in 1979. After a quick and uneasy conversation with the man that Sean had mistaken for an atrocious piece of art that was taking up bar stool seating space at the party, he ended up giving out his mother’s home address to the man.

 

Sean Penn’s mother favorably sold 500 greeting cards to the future author of “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff“. About 4 decades later, she received a package from “Pappy Pariah”, which she had mistaken for Sean Penn fan mail. After realizing that the name was familiar, Sean asked his mother to send him the package instead of throwing it away. He soon discovered that it was the manuscript for “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”.

The author wanted Sean to help him release the book before the elections took place, so they chose the fastest way to do it, publishing an audiobook. During the second “Late Night” interview with Stephen Colbert, Sean went on to admit that he was the original author of the book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. Seemingly confused, Stephen proceeded to ask questions.

 

Stephen asked Sean why he lied about it and Sean said that it’s what the fictional character does. Apparently, “Pappy” nor “Bob” smoke, they just “do stuff”. Unlike the character he played during the interview, Sean Penn. Sean ended up smoking two cigarettes on television while on the “Late Show”, by the way.

 

The character “Pappy Pariah” seems to be an alter ego of Sean’s for him to be able to write the book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. However, Bob seems to also be a representation of Sean Penn’s world views and political opinions. The character in the book goes on to describe the fictional President as “the landlord” and proceeds to insult him in various, creative ways.

Meet OSI’s President; David McDonald

Everything great takes time to grow as one needs to nurture it. Many people spend their time complaining of that promotion that they were denied after being loyal to the firm for years. What they don’t understand is to be successful, you have to invest in yourself and be concerned about the mission of the firm. David McDonald is a source of inspiration for those who are working in the firm and want to acquire the high positions. David McDonald has been working in the OSI Industries for the past 30 years. He is currently working as the President of the firm. However, he joined the OSI Industries as a project manager; it is his efforts that led to his promotion.

David McDonald says that the OSI Industries has been able to grow by learning the needs of their clients and earning their trust. For instance, they have gained the trust of the China market because they have been working with them for the past two decades. In areas that they do not know the culture and interests of the individuals, McDonald says that they have representatives who understand the needs of the community. He explains that they do not micromanage their representatives, they provide them with the resources that they need to fulfil the requirements of the clients. David McDonald says that perfection is essential in every firm. He, however, adds that they allow room for mistakes because it is through taking risks that new things are discovered. He says that their other source of inspiration is their customers. He explains that sometimes the customer’s request a change in the menu, and they use the feedback they get to adjust their portfolio.

Besides their present progress, the OSI Industries is ready for the future. David McDonald says that the industry is changing at a very high rate. The consumers are now aware of their health value. They want to have products of animals who are raised in certain environments. He said that many companies are rigid, and they are not ready to embrace the changes that occur. McDonald says that having the willingness to adjust, helps OSI acquire long-term clients. The only challenge that the firm is facing at the moment is the poor roads of China. However, they have taken a step to solve the issue by informing the government and other corporations involved with the development of the sector. They are hopeful that they are going to act in favour of the citizens and more

Jeff Herman On The Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case

Attorney Jeff Herman is a civil attorney specializing in cases of sexual assault. Rather than being involved with the criminal proceedings which can end in jail time, he handles lawsuits often against institutions that employ sexual predators and should be protecting their clients against these dangerous individuals too.

While watching the Cosby retrial he thought not just about it impacted his own practice, but how it impacted society as a whole. Thankfully these days it isn’t as common to revictimize a rape survivor. Not only that but more people are coming forward. It is also more common for the survivor to be believed. However, the Cosby trial was rife with victim shaming and rape culture in the defense of Bill Cosby. This defense was not effective in the least and the jury quickly convicted him of his crimes.

In his review of the trial proceedings, he found that around sixty women had accused Cosby, but because of the statute of limitations, only one charge was brought to trial. The people of the state of Pennsylvania brought that charge on behalf of Andrea Constand. During the first trial only the testimony of one victim was heard, and in 2017 a jury failed to return a verdict. In the second trial, five victims testified that Cosby had in some instances given them drugs and in others got them drunk and assaulted them. They were able to show a clear and consistent pattern in Cosby’s actions.

Ms. Constand claimed that the incident happened at the Philadephia home of Cosby in January of 2004. She said that he had invited her over to discuss her career plans, though he claimed that the two had been involved romantically since shortly after they had met. According to Ms. Constand, he gave her what was suppose to have been herbal supplements. However, she was soon seeing double vision then blacked out. She testified that she came to with Cosby assaulting her.

How Ryan Seacrest Does So Much and Makes It Look So Easy

Ryan Seacrest has accomplished a lot in his 43 years on this earth. Hosting “American Idol” put him on the map but he’s taken on a lot more in and out of show business since then. He produces the hit television shows “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “American Idol.” He also has a nationally-syndicated radio show “On Air With Ryan.” Outside of the entertainment industry Ryan has a skin care and fashion line, and started The Ryan Seacrest Foundation. His foundation’s purpose is to inspire youth through entertainment and multimedia experiences. Most recently, however, Seacrest moved to New York to co-host “Live” with Kelly Ripa.

In an article from The New York Times, Ryan mentioned that his fast paced lifestyle may make some people wonder how he keeps up. His daily routine is surprisingly normal considering all the endeavors on his plate. Over the years he has disciplined himself to structure his day and stick to his plan, instead of being overrun by the demands of the moment.

According to Ryan, he starts his morning early, waking up to an alarm clock at 6am and takes care of himself at the beginning of the day instead of jumping into the day’s work. Seacrest has learned the value of taking care of himself physically, and makes time for a cup of matcha tea for the benefits it gives. He also carves out time to work out, something he felt guilty about earlier in his career. Currently, that workout is usually boxing, his Peloton bike, or a jog outdoors. Besides physical exercise, as a self-proclaimed “foodie” he makes sure to make time to indulge in good food, friends and wine on the weekends.

All these steps to organization of his work and personal life only add to Seacrest’s success and image. He worked for Dick Clark early in his career and noted the vibe of ease and poise Clark put out. Seacrest makes his busy lifestyle look easy, bringing the same distinction he admired in Clark before he passed away.

Graeme Holm And Infinity Group Upend Australian Lending Practices

Graeme Holm’s first decade working in the Australian financial sector was full of lessons and challenges. His certifications in finance, real estate, and planning were being put to use but he became disillusioned with the value he felt he was contributing to his customers. He used his second decade in the industry to do something about that.

 

The realization that Australia’s banks were taking advantage of the country’s homebuyers and families was a life changer for Holm. With that in mind, he helped found his own brokerage firm, Infinity Group Australia. Infinity was created as alternative to traditional brokerage firms, with a focus on supporting families through both stressful times of financial needs as well as more joyous occasions like home ownership.

 

Having seen firsthand what traditional banks were doing to lure homebuyers into situations that were financially risky, Holm set out to make Infinity’s loan process thorough and comprehensive. The firm takes an honest accounting of a family’s financial health and helps create a realistic budget together. Holm is quick to emphasize that the process takes time, but the resulting relationship is valuable to customer and lender.

 

Infinity also operates on an open and transparent fee schedule, ensuring families are aware of all obligations to the firm from the start. The trust that goes into a building a successful financial relationship is, for Holm, a two-way street.

 

Once the loan is approved, the differences between Infinity and traditional lenders become more stark. At this point in the process most brokers believe their work is complete. Infinity takes a different approach, assigning clients to their own personal banker who is tasked with guiding the family to loan resolution as quickly and painlessly as possible. This also includes a monthly and biannually monitoring of the family’s financial situation, making adjustments where needed.

 

For Graeme Holm, the biggest factor in a family’s financial health is access to credit. Infinity’s budgeting process comes with a strict, no-credit policy. Instead, families are furnished with a debit card which replaces a credit card’s flexibility with real cash. You can’t spend what you don’t have and debit cards ensure that remains true. While Holm finds that some clients initially balk at this loss of control, they tend to come around as their debt begins to rapidly dissolve away. That moment for Holm is why he created Infinity in the first place. Learn more: https://medium.com/@graemeholm

Juan “OG’ Perez And Jay Z Celebrate Juan’s 50th Birthday In Style

Juan “OG” Perez recently celebrated his birthday, and Jay Z was on-hand to shell out close to $113,000 for the celebration. As Juan turned 50 years old, the party started in Midtown at a Japanese restaurant where guests dined on steak, sushi, and lobster with a price-tag of $13,000. The group moved on to celebrate at other locations and then ended up at the Playroom Nightclub where $91,000 was spent on champagne and other items. The group’s tab was shared on instagram by a serving working at the location, and it showed that they had spent $74,000, alone, on 40 bottles of champaign along with $11,100 in gratuity.

The friendship between “OG” Juan Perez and Jay Z has been going on for many years, and a clever part of the entire birthday celebration was the fact that the champagne they drank was from Jay Z’s own champagne brand he had purchased before. Juan “OG” Perez and his wife, Desiree Perez, have been working behind the scenes for years to ensure that the business dealings and operations of Jay Z were all on the up-and-up. It is not a surprise to anyone that Jay Z shelled out so much to help “OG” Juan Perez celebrate 50th birthday.

Juan OG Perez grew up in Harlem and went to Brandeis High School. He met Jay Z in 1996 and quickly developed a working relationship with the rapper. They partnered up in 2003 to open up some lounges and sports bars and found plenty of success. NYC sports have always been the connecting link between Jay Z and Perez, and Jay Z has even given nods to the man in his music. While they both have managed to keep their dealings out of the spotlight, most of the time, the two expect to continue to be business partners going into the future.
