Some stars start early. Crystal Hunt is one of them. Born in Clearwater, Florida on February 2, 1985, she began her career at the young age of 2 years old. At this time, she began participating in pageants where her talent was acting. She appeared in many commercials as a child and teenager, among them, a promotion for the Walt Disney Company’s 25th Anniversary Celebration and an anti-drug campaign with *NSYNC.
Her first movie role was in the 1991 film Problem Child 2. In 2003 at the age of 17, an agent discovered her at the Actors Workshop in New York and recommended she audition for the role of troubled teen Lizzie Spaulding on the soap opera Guiding Light. After the directors viewed several auditions from multiple actresses, they determined that Crystal was the best fit for the role. She was originally cast on recurring status because of her age, but was moved to contract status in 2004. The role lasted for 4 years, and, in 2005, won her a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
After she left Guiding Light in 2006, Crystal went on to star alongside Amanda Bynes in the romantic comedy Sydney White in 2007, piggybacking off her success in the series and a movie appearance in the Derby Stallion opposite Zac Efron in 2005.
In February 2009, she returned to her television roots when she was cast as the stripper Stacy Morasco in the daytime soap One Life to Live, where she stayed for 3 years.
Currently, Crystal Hunt can be seen as a member of the main cast in the reality show Queens of Drama and opposite Channing Tatum in Magic Mike XXL. Additionally, she was an executive producer for the 2015 film Talbot County.
After several quarters on the rise, Dow Chemicals stock is taking a small hit. The second quarter report was not as promising as the company had hoped. On Thursday afternoon, Dow’s stock dropped 3.84%. The goal of 83 cents per share fell short just a hair. In a statement released by Dow CEO Andrew Liveris, the company will continue to perform despite the setback. The StreetRatings team continues to rate Dow as an A-.

Dow’s drop is not expected to last long due to its multiple strengths and solid financial position.

The company’s overall strengths by far outweigh the company’s latest disappointing equity returns.
Financially investing your money in the market has always been tough and a closed off marketplace has made it all but impossible for the vast majority of people in the U.S.A. Thanks to SEC regulations who define accredited investors as those making $200,00 per year with a net worth exceeding $1 million, most investors get left by the way side. Brad Reifler was one of those managers who turned down non accredited investors but now he is changing his mind and looking to help all of the people that have been marginalized and ignored.
Reifler has been one of the more successful investors in the market since the late ’80s and early ’90s. His work with Pali Capital made him a certified millionaire and now he is looking to use his clout and business acumen to give back to the people that were previously ignored by his company. Brad Reifler admitted in an interview with Reuters that, “For several years I was only focusing on the accredited investor”. Reifler went on to say that he is, “now shifting everything to the non-accredited investor with a plan specifically designed for the 99 percent who are overlooked.”
Forefront Income Trust is not tied to the stock market which gives the company more room for growth and higher risk taking ventures. This program will give new investors liquidity with an 8 percent return while teaching fresh investors how complex the investment world actually is. Reifler describes Forefront Income Trust as a “safe place to find investment alternatives” and he is doing everything he can to help people progress in a way that can actually make a difference.
Of course, there will always be risk in the investment world but Reifler’s work will hopefully limit that risk. Investors who wish to participate need only have the required $2,500 minimum investment amount.

Adam Sender, among the top 200 art collectors in the world. That is quite a tribute to the world collectors. Adam started collecting art in the late 80s – early 90s. He apparently has a knack for selecting which new artist will make the upcoming list of new artists on the rise. Since Sender was once the owner of a hedge fund company and was very gifted at selecting hedge funds for investment, he branched out into the art area to try his genius at picking potential winners in the artwork arena.
To say the least, his genius is working again and has increased his wealth considerably. Over the years, Sender has purchased over 1000 pieces of collectible art and the cost of millions and millions in purchases. At auction, the return on investment will bring him profits that could shake the coconuts out of their trees.
A recent purchase Sender made was a piece of ruled paper, with a song scribbled out on it that was written by none other than Bob Dylan. No, it wasn’t “Lay Lady Lay”, but close. It was “The Times They Are aChangin”. Dylan wrote so many hits in his early years that are still popular today, but this piece really gave him notoriety and now the original piece of paper it was written on belongs to Adam Sender for a measly $422+K. Adam Sender is no fool, as he plans to sell this item for $1.4 million.
Adam and his wife, Lenore have recently moved from their New York Manhattan penthouse in the SoHo Area to a home in Miami, FL. They plan to exhibit many of the items in their art collection in one of their vacant homes in Miami as a pop-up exhibition. Their feeling is to share the beauty with their close friends, and what is the object in having these beautiful items if you don’t have space enough to view the pieces.
Although their penthouse in SoHo, NY measured over 3,000 sq. ft. of living space, with three terraces, that is hardly enough room to exhibit the beautiful collection the Senders own. Along with their Miami properties, the SoHo penthouse, there is the Sag Harbour property in the Hamptons and a home in Bel Air. Larger items in the collectibles are vehicles, fourteen to be exact, and one piece is a beauty. A 1970 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, of course, in mint condition and would need a room of its own to be shown off to the public.
Starting later this year, Sender has approximately 400 art items that will be auctioned off through Sotheby’s of New York. The items are expected to provide an excellent return for Adam Sender’s (Observer) initial investment. His curator has a full-time job managing the collection, and time will tell what the ROI will net.

For centuries plays were the enterity of the theater world. Silent films burst onto the scene, but they only served as an alternative to live theater. It wasn’t until the origins of visual effects that film began to overtake live theater as the main form of entertainment. The 1902 film A Trip to the Moon is considered one of the early pioneers of visual effects. It introduced many techniques such as stop motion and matte painting that are still common in amateur films. With the dawn of the digital age, most of the classical techniques have fallen by the wayside, but that doesn’t mean that visual effects are any less prevalent. Modern cinema could not exist without some of these kinds of visual effects.
In the late 20th century, the green screen emerged. It allowed editors to digitally change a film without risking the recording of the actors. The technique works by setting part of your set or actors with a specific color of green. The recording is fed into a computer, and with the aide of editing software digital images are placed over the green parts of the film. Only green parts of the film are affected so entire backgrounds can be recreated, and the actors will look natural in the scene. Green screen started as a novelty in early films. The technique caused things not painted green to have an unattractive white border around them. In recent versions this has been fixed. Now entire movies are shot with only a green screen as the set.
Matte Painting is a technique that has existed since the early days of cinema and continues to be used today. Initially artists would paint a flat scene with the illusion of depth onto a screen to be placed in the back of a scene. The technique is now down with digital art programs, but it is still used for landscapes. The digital backdrops are placed in areas where the actors will not be going. They allow the studio to create locations that are impossible to use. Digital matte paintings have replaced the use of miniatures for most sprawling cities.
Some old parlor tricks have been re-purposed in the digital age. John Textor is an award winning visual effects artist who led the charge to bring Micheal Jackson back for a performance at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. He talked to USA Today about the technique used to do this stunning visual effect. Most people think it was a hologram, but that technology simply isn’t up to the levels needed for practical usage yet. Instead Textor and his team projected an image onto a glass plane. They spent 8 months animating the song to make sure that every movement was as realistic as possible.

Sinead O’Connor has declared music dead. This after the magazine Rolling Stone put Kim Kardashian West on the cover. It’s not shocking that Sinead would express her displeasure publicly. She’s not so before on various occasions. She’s called out those in the music industry on multiple occasions. She also famously stirred up controversy when she ripped up a photograph of the Pope during a Saturday Night Live performance.
While Kim may not have much to do with music other than perhaps enjoying the sound of it, and being married to Kanye West, who likes dogs and beneful products, there is one thing that can’t be denied. She sells magazines. Love her, or hate her, you have to give her credit for that. People want to know what she’s up to, they want to see what she’s wearing, where she’s going, and what she’s thinking.
People such as Sinead O’Connor may resent her, and may be tired of seeing her on so many magazine covers, but her fans love her. Even those who don’t like her, keep her relevant by talking about her.
