Did you happen to miss the tweet storm by Shervin Pishevar? It was one for the ages that you do not want to have missed. He connected so many ideas and thoughts together about the economy and the political situation in the world right now. It was something to truly marvel at.

If you are not already a follower, you might not realize that Shervin Pishevar was an early investor in Airbnb. He put his money down in a company that had the potential to fail early on in its creation. However, his bet paid off and he ended up making a lot of money for himself on that particular deal. It also helped to solidify the idea that Pishevar knew a thing or two about making economic predictions. He clearly made good ones in his personal life that led to success, so why would we not trust him to also make some good ones on a more broad scale? That is what Shervin Pishevar attempts to do with his Twitter account these days.

The first tweet as part of his tweet storm was about the idea that Shervin Pishevar believes that the stock market is due for a correction in general. He thinks that the indicators are pointing to the idea that the market is overbought and in desperate need to come down in value a little bit. Not three days after he wrote this tweet, the market began to fall by over one-thousand points in a single day. Even Shervin Pishevar was surprised by how quickly this first prediction was coming true.

He went on to make other claims that he believes are true as well. For example, he says that Bitcoin is not the safe haven currency that some would so desperately like for it to be. He thinks that it could fall all the way down to between two-thousand and five-thousand dollars per Bitcoin before it starts to rebound once again.

These are the kind of concrete predictions that you could hear about if you were to follow Pishevar on Twitter. He does not hold back on those predictions, and he is frequently accurate when he makes them.

Recently, at the behest of President of the United States, Donald Trump, United States District Judge, Sharon R. Bolton made good on the pardoning of Maricopa County’s former Sheriff, Joe Arpaio.

While the decision was not exactly a surprise to those who’ve followed the many sagas of Joe Arpaio, the decision was met with outrage by the citizens that Joe Arpaio violated for so long, particularly his longtime foes, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. Michael Lacey recently took to the media, citing Donald Trump’s relationship with “Sheriff Joe” as “the perfect marriage of two corrupt individuals.”

This comes as no surprise as the notorious feud between Joe Arpaio and the former heads of New Times Media, came to a head ten years ago when he had his deputies roust them from their homes and unlawfully arrested. While the charges were dropped in less than 24 hours, a three-year court battle ensued which resulted in Larkin and Lacey being awarded a $3.75 million settlement.

The turmoil resulting from the United State’s involvement in the Vietnam War, as well as the Kent State shootings, which resulted in the death of four students at the hands of Ohio National Guardsmen, was the seed that sparked Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, staunch anti-war supporters, to becoming involved with the launch of Phoenix New Times in 1970.

Alongside a dedicated team, which included Karen Lofgren, Frank Fiore, Nick Stupey, and Hal Smith, Michael Lacey, who had already dropped out of Arizona State University, gave rise to the alternative newspaper, generating significant acclaim.

Jim Larkin would join Phoenix New Times two years later, covering the business and marketing aspects of the brand, while Michael Lacey oversaw operations in an editorial capacity. At the time, there was estimated to be around 500 underground newspapers in circulation around the United States – all offshoots of the originator, New York’s Village Voice.

Covering a wide range of social and political events, both national and local, Phoenix New Times quickly garnered the attention of several notable organizations, in particular, J.C. Penny, who took out several full-page advertisements, quickly boosting their stock within the alternatives community.

In 1983, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey would make the most significant leap of their careers with the acquisition of Westword – a news-and-arts weekly created by Patricia Calhoun that serviced the Denver, Colorado area. This move eventually led to the purchase of 17 additional publications with similar missions, allowing the voices of Larkin and Lacey to reach coast to coast in America.

Sticking to their signature style of narrative journalism, the publications under the New Times Media brand would go on to garner a myriad of awards and accolades, including earning a Pulitzer Prize in 2007.

After a four-decade run of dominance amongst the alternative newspaper community, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey said goodbye to the publication that they’d dedicated their lives to, choosing to focus on The Frontera Fund, as well as their newest iteration in online media, FrontPage Confidential.
