Recently, Bumble became the latest American organization to take a stance against gun violence. It banned the use of gun images across all its platforms. It was a statement that was made unequivocally claiming that gun violence is nowhere in line with the values of the firm. The platform’s statement implied making guns un-sexy since many gun owners think buying guns are sexy. Weapons are still used to show masculinity in the society, and that is what Bumble is trying to stop. However, some Bumble users are allowed to use gun images as long as they are military or law enforcement personnel. They should be wearing their uniform though. The platform is more active in cities like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles as compared to other places. The towns are infamous for gun violence.

Banning guns from the platform may prove to be hard in any dating app. This is because most users use guns as part of their dating identity. Some of the weapons that will be banned from the platform are knives and arms as well. Whitney Wolfe said that there is hope for gun lovers since the app; Shooter is a few weeks from completion.

Bumble has announced a jersey sponsorship deal with L.A Clippers. The deal was based on the fight for gender equality for both companies.

The Ominous Side of The Chainsmokers

April 2, 2018 • MichaelPollackWins

If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting a while for the next release of The Chainsmokers. Wait no longer! After a long nine month interval the EDM/ POP duo has finally come back with a new ominous and dark tone in the new hit single “Sick Boy,” a fascinating turn around from the upbeat and romantic nature of their earlier tracks. This sensational band has started to evolve their sound to how they are perceiving themselves and society as a whole.

The chart breaking doupoly known as the Chainsmokers consist of two Goliath music producers named Alex Pall and Drew Taggart. The dynamic duo met while working and attending school in the New York area. From there the pair started working on remixes of indie bands for a brief period of time. Shortly after, The Chainsmokers broke their first Billboard Hot 100 list with the single “Roses”. What comes next is an onslaught of hit after hit releases such as, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Paris”, “Closer”, and their second most recent hit featuring Cold Play “Something Just Like This”. With such a staggering portfolio already at hand, the Chainsmokers had a large set of shoes to fill with their next release; they accomplished this task with the new hit single “Sick Boy”

Already this new release of The Chainsmoker’s “Sick Boy”, is breaking charts not only in the U.S but in other countries around the world. This enchanting melody explores the constant exposure that all of us now live with in the world of social media. Its critical thoughts portray the narcissistic nature that social media inflicts upon society, while showing that this narcissism isn’t directly a bad feature. If used correctly, it can help show all of us what exactly defines each of us as individuals. This will render us more capable to make positive changes about ourselves. The Chainsmoker’s new song leaves me satiated musically and intellectually, while leaving me anxious for more.
