Highland Capital Management is an investment firm in Dallas Texas that was co-founded by James Dondero; The initial focus of the organization is to work with their clients’ private equity accounts, credit hedge funds, and various other credit accounts. However, the company does not only manage financial statements for their clients, but they also give back to their community by setting aside three million dollars in their yearly budget for philanthropic purposes. Read this article at investopedia.com. One of the many examples of the ways James Dondero has made sure that Highland Capital Management has given back to Dallas is by supporting The Family Place, a shelter in the city for men that are victims of domestic abuse. The home is within convenient proximity to immediate medical care and other useful amenities, and there is a twenty-four-hour crisis hotline in place for individuals who need to reach out for help. Highland Capital has recently held a charitable event at the Dallas Zoo which aided in raising funds for The Family Place, yet another example of their generous nature. Visit hcp.com to know more. One of the most recent cases of the liberal view of Highland Capital Management founder, James Dondero, is his one million dollar donation to the Dallas Zoo so that they might recreate their beloved hippo habitat. In 2001, management at the Dallas Zoo had to make the difficult decision to shut down the habitat after their eldest hippopotamus, Papa, passed away of old age. The community was heartbroken, and for several years the zoo has received an outcry of requests for the habitat to be reopened. Now, nearly two decades after its closing, James Dondero and several other local philanthropists in the Dallas area came together to donate the necessary fourteen billion dollars to rebuild a brand new hippo habitat. The community was happy to flood to the zoo to welcome the two new additions to the Dallas Zoo family, Adhama, and Boipelo, the juvenile Hippos. Their caretakers hope that they will someday mate and assist with the rebuilding of the endangered hippopotamus population. It is because of the philanthropic efforts of Highland Capital Management and its founders that Dallas can thrive as a city, and for that, we say thank you!

The dance electronic duo, The Chainsmokers, has seen massive success with their debut album, Memories… Do Not Open. The album has had 34 turns in the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, and is tied for third for the most weeks spent in the top seat.
The duo, which consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart, partnered with other chart-toppers, including Coldplay and Florida Georgia Line, on their first full-length album. Taggart describes their style as “blurring the lines between indie, pop music, dance music, and hip-hop,” and lists Pharrell Williams, Linkin Park and deadmau5 as influences. Memories… Do Not Open is on track to surpass Gorillaz’s Demon Days to claim third place as its own.
The Chainsmokers’ release of Memories… Do Not Open in April 2017 launched the duo into the dance/electronic music spotlight as the album debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200. The album was certified platinum in August 2017, the same month the duo was listed as third on Forbes’ World’s Highest Paid DJs list with earnings of $38 million.
Pall and Taggart found initial success in 2014 with their single “#Selfie,” which ranked on international dance/electronic charts. Described as “life-changing” by Pall, “#Selfie” set the stage for The Chainsmokers to continue on a path to greater chart-topping success. In 2015, their follow-up single, “Roses,” and debut EP, Bouquet, found commercial success. Additionally, in 2016, the duo partnered with Halsey on “Closer,” which peaked at No. 1 in both the United States and United Kingdom, and prompted an 18th place ranking on DJ Magazine’s “Top 100 DJs” list for the pair.
The Chainsmokers’ star does not appear to be fading, as the duo prepares to release a second studio album this year. Through a series of releases of singles like “Sick Boy,” “You Owe Me” and “Somebody,” Pall and Taggart continue to keep fans of their music enthralled and on the hook for more.
