In just 2016 the music and entertainment industry brought in $17.2 billion globally in revenue. It’s very competitive and artists need to stay on top of their game at all times in order to stay relevant. Behind the scenes, most leadership roles are occupied by men. However, women are slowly gaining a foothold in the industry. One of these women is Desiree Perez who has proven she deserves a spot at the table.Desiree, or Des, Perez is a longtime business partner and friend of Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. She has been instrumental in pushing his business interests and is a top executive at his company, Roc Nation.
His business is rather complicated as it includes everything from talent development to concert tour management to the production of music. Des Perez is very familiar with every facet of the business empire and is responsible for developing talent as well as maximizing Roc Nation’s profits. Along with her husband, Des Perez is part of the Hova Circle of Influence which is a very powerful collection of investors and influencers in the industry. She has shown that she has a keen eye for spotting business opportunities that will lead to even greater profits for Roc Nation.
Due to this, and her ability to manage talent and work out solid contracts, she has proven her worth many times over to Jay-Z. Among the artists she has worked extensively with is Rihanna, for example, for whom she set up the huge $25 million concert deal with Samsung.Des Perez is from New York City and continues to live there. While she mostly stays behind the scenes in 2013 she did play herself in a movie called, “Change: The LifeParticle Effect”. This movie was about physics and neuroscience combined with both spiritual and philosophical viewpoints.
The well renowned American mathematician Michael Lacey was born on September 26 in the year 1959. He managed to receive a Ph.D. in the year 1987 from the University of Illinois at the Urbana-Champaign. He was directed by Walter Philip. He conducted his thesis in the field covering probability in Banach spaces.
Moreover, he involved himself in solving the problem relating to the law of integrated logarithm for empirical characteristic functions. During his course and education, he was interested in the areas of mathematics dealing with probability and erotic theory but much more interested in harmonic analysis.
After his doctorate studies, Michael Lacey advanced his studies in the Louisiana State University and again at the University of North Carolina located at the Charpel Hill. He joined hands with Mathematician Walter Philipp at the University of North Carolina in coming up with the solution to the almost certain Central Limit Theorem.
He was first employed at the Indiana University between the year 1989 and 1996. It was while working in this institution that he was awarded the post-doctorate fellowship.
In his fellowship tenure, he decided to take on the bilinear Hilbert transform. During his time of the study, the transform was a subject of conjecture. Together with Christopher Thiele of the Christian-Albrechts-Universitat Kiel, Michael Lacey managed to come up with its solution.
By solving the problem, they were awarded the Salem Prize. They had also developed a new way of approach to the space analysis.
The award was establishe3d in the year 1968 and is awarded every year to the best young mathematician that has worked to advance the work that was done by the mathematician Raphael Salem. The primary area of focus that is focused by the selection panel is the Fourier transforms
Later, relocated to the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996 where he worked as a professor of mathematics. He continued with his handwork in his research work while in the university.
In the year 2004, he again was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship as a result of the joint work with Xiaochun Li. Additionally, he became an American Mathematician Society fellow.
