Jeremy Goldstein Co-Chairs Fountain House Event

Mental illness can be a deterrent. It can deter victims from living normal lives. It can bring a halt to dreams and aspirations. For many, it can stop educational pursuits and leave its victims in limbo. It can destroy one’s confidence and hinder success. The Fountain House is trying to help those who are victimized by traumatizing mental illness. One way they are achieving their goals is through the House’s innovative programs. These programs bring the victims of mental conditions together with a dedicated and trained staff at the Fountain House. The House offers support and a place of solace and healing for those in need. Members forge friendships and come in contact with much-needed mentors. However, these unique programs are dependent on the support and contributions of local businesses. The Fountain House’s annual Fall Fete is one way that new contributors are pursued and enlightened about the House and its endeavors. Associate Scholarship winners are announced at the event. Local lawyer, Jeremy L. Goldstein, is a loyal supporter and a co-chair for the event. According to Goldstein, the Association created the scholarships over 5 years ago. The scholarships go to two deserving recipients each year. The recipients must be survivors whose education was interrupted by a mental disorder. The Association works diligently to reduce the stigma that is often attached to mental illness. The Fountain House’s mission is to educate the community and to help those who are recovering from the effects of mental disorders. The 5th Fall event was held in November of 2012 with dinner and dancing at the prestigious Metropolitan Club on 5th Avenue in New York City. There was also a cocktail reception before the event. The reception was held at Emporio Armani on Madison Avenue. The House continues its efforts to educate the community and to improve the lives of its members.

Is Alex Pall Different Than We Thought?

In a recent interview with the members of The Chainsmokers, Mathias Rosenzweig discussed a certain matter that has come up in recent news about the duo. Ms. Rosenzweig discussed quite a few subjects with the two members and it started as most interviews do.

Alex Pall was asked how the two members met and started working together. He responded in a not so surprising way, seeing as though he has always had a musical tune in him. He mentioned that he was a DJ growing up and this was his hobby at the time. He was working side jobs here and there but nothing too fantastic. Alex was working with a manager at the time while he was going through a stage with a great interest in art galleries and dance music. Through this stage and his manager, he met Drew, who his manager had introduced him to. The two began working immediately and from then on it was history.

Andrew Taggart, on the other hand, was also very strongly interested in DJing and had a strong passion for electronic music. He was made fun of for his interest in this style of music and the way he dressed because when he was in college and right as he was leaving college, this was not the style that people sought after. It eventually evolved as he had predicted and his past style is now the style of many.

Another question that came up in the interview was how the two were going to work things out, seeing as though they were both on different ends of the spectrum when referring to music. They both agreed that they were different but they also both knew what they brought to the table. Through this agreement and trust in each other, the two have gone on to make many top-selling hits and wow millions of fans from all across the world.

The interview continued on with a few more questions discussing success and what led to it, but the main message that Alex and Drew gave was to never give up and believe.

The alternate alternative by Jeremy Goldstein

There has been a constant debate in the corporate world on the use of Earnings per Share (EPS) as a form of incentive as well as the use of performance-based pay programs. Different personnel differ in the benefits and mishaps of these incentive methods.


The antagonists suggest that EPS within a corporation can lead to favoritism of the heads of the companies like the CEOs. They argue that EPS provides company presidents and Administrators of enterprises with immense influence over whether or not metrics are being met, manipulating precise results. What this means is that those at top ranks in an establishment could be manipulating metric results to increase the sale of shares which is unlawful and misrepresentative. However, those in support of this form on incentive argue that EPS has an enormous drive on the stock price and that it provides for the company to be able to pay their employees better hence increasing the quality of their services.


Others argue that these types of metrics are only interested in the short term profitability and in no way do they support the company’s corporate growth. Performance driven pay sequencers are also carped for being undependable and over changing. It is in these situations that the companies turn to their go-to attorney Jeremy Goldstein who always offers the better alternative. I this case, Jeremy Goldstein suggests that instead of entirely doing away with these programs, enterprises should find a way to hold their executives accountable and ensuring that they match their programs with their long-term company goals, sustainable growth and also the growth of their share value.
