Ian King Declares Bitcoin is at the End of the Beginning

Ian King recently joined the Banyan Hill Publishing editorial team to add his cryptocurrency expertise to the board’s set of outstanding trading and investing skills. He is a former trader of dot com stocks, credit derivatives, mortgage bonds and equities. When King learned about the enormous potential of crypto assets, he quit his lucrative job as a hedge fund manager so he could educate people about how to make money trading bitcoin. He became the most active contributor on cryptos to Investopedia.

By early January 2018, the market for bitcoin and all other cryptocurrencies lost lots of money. In December 2017 the price of one bitcoin pushed close to $20,000. But the new year saw a drop of 71%, which is drastic.

However, the new investors bitcoin attracted in 2017 were not used to such volatility wiping out all their profits. They didn’t see bitcoin drop 85% in 2011. They didn’t hold it through the many other major dips and drawdowns in its history, even in 2017. By the end of that year, it seemed bitcoin knew only how to go up. So many people were not prepared for the downside 2018 brought. View more on Ian King at Stock Twits for more updates.

In his first article for Banyan Hill’s readers, King said the downturn was not the end of bitcoin, only the end of its beginning. For years the word about bitcoin had spread underground through libertarians and others who wanted it to replace the fiat money issued by governments. Nobody else had ever heard of bitcoin unless in conjunction with online drug sales on Silk Road or ransomware attacks. But that changed. By the end of 2017, bitcoin and other cryptos cross the tipping point to mass awareness. Bitcoin’s market price went up an astounding 1,500%, leading many people to believe they’d be rich if they had heard of it and bought in earlier (and if they resisted the urge to take profits). That ignited their greed and their fear of missing out. The total market capitalization of cryptocoins went from $18 billion to over $600 billion. Learn more on crunchbase  about Ian King

Now that the market mania of December has subsided, many experts are saying it’s the end of bitcoin, and they couldn’t be happier. As King points out, although almost everybody has heard of bitcoin, few people own it. And few of those people actually understand it. Despite the stories of how people mortgaged their homes to buy crypto coins, the market is still a long way from being saturated. Learn more:https://banyanhill.com/expert/ian-king/

 

Dr. David Samadi:Mitt Romney’s Prognosis Good after Prostate Surgery

According to urology expert Dr. David Samadi, the prognosis for the recovery from prostate cancer for Mitt Romney, the former Republican presidential candidate, is good. Dr. Samadi, chief of Robotic Surgery and chairman of Urology at Lenox Hill Hospital, said Romney’s cancer has been successfully treated through surgery. Romney had been diagnosed with a slow-growing cancerous tumor and underwent prostate surgery a few months ago. Some say his cancer disclosure and announcement of his clean bill of health is a sign he plans to run for Orin Hatch’s Utah seat in the U.S. Senate.

Dr. Thomas Ahlering successfully performed the surgery at California’s UC Irvine Hospital and Romney’s prognosis is said to be good. In 2017, over 161,360 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and the American Cancer Society estimates in 2018 there will be 164,690 new prostate cancer cases confirmed. About 60% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer are over age 65. The 70 year old Romney joins politicians Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, and former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry as well-known men that had successful surgical treatment for prostate cancer.

Dr. Samadi, a Hofstra School of Medicine urology professor, says men diagnosed with prostate cancer must look at the pros and cons and before deciding between surgery and radiation treatment. Dr. Samadi recommends surgery if the cancer is confined to the prostate gland. Studies show in those cases men had better outcomes with surgery than radiation treatment. Dr. Samadi pointed out that men who opt for radiation treatment die sooner and twice as often as those choosing surgery. Radiation treatment patients also often develop rectal, bladder and other secondary cancers.

A board-certified urologist, Dr. David Samadi specializes in prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment. He has a degree in biochemistry from Stony Brook University and graduated from Stoney Brook School of Medicine with his M.D. He attended Montefiore Medical Center to do postgraduate training in urology. He went to Albert Einstein College of Medicine for advanced training in proctology. In 2001, Dr. Samadi was at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center completing an oncology fellowship focused on proctology. He also studied in France under Professor Claude Abbou at Henri Mondor Hospital Cretail for a fellowship in robotic radical prostatectomy.

Dr. David Samadi said men diagnosed prostate cancer should select an experienced, qualified urologist/oncologist to provide the guidance they need to make informed decisions about overcoming the disease.

Gregory Aziz Can Pull Companies Out Of The Weeds

There are very few people in the world that can claim to bring a single business up from near-bankruptcy and make it an international player in its industry. Even fewer can claim to do this more than once. One of these individuals is entrepreneur, businessman, and investor Gregory James Aziz. Aziz has performed this task twice, and he owes all of this success to his ability to read a business and its environment, his innovative thinking, and his patience.

The first company that Gregory James Aziz helped was Affiliated Foods. Starting at the Company in 1971 shortly after graduating from the University of Western Ontario, Greg Aziz was not quite sure what his role would be. He was easily promoted up through management into the executive staff due to his knowledge and business acumen. In the late 1970s, he started to make some major changes. He realized that the Company was not living up to its potential. He wanted to expand into new markets, primarily the United States, so he started doing research and reaching out to potential customers. Eventually, he was able to pull distribution networks all throughout North America. He even obtained new supply contracts in South America and Europe in order to import more desired and exotic foods. His business sense helped him create one of the leading food distributors throughout North America. In 1994, he wanted to do the same thing but with a different industry, so he purchased National Steel Car.

National Steel Car was a well-respected rolling stock and freight car assembly plant located in Ontario. In its heyday, NSC was able to put out thousands of rail cars each year, and they had major contracts with all of the railroads in Ontario. However, poor management and an even worse economy led the owners to stop investing in the company, and a strategy of low-cost, low-quality products was developed. Greg Aziz took one look at this strategy and knew it would never work. When he purchased the company, he did his research and found a new way to incentivize engineers to start focusing on safer, higher-quality designs. He found new customers and told his old customers that the Company was turning over a new leaf. In his time at National Steel Car, he increased production capacity and profits by over 300 percent, and NSC remains one of the strongest manufacturers of rolling stock today. See This Article for additional information.

 

Greg Aziz is truly a titan of business. He is able to read the environment and know what the customer wants better than other managers. Due to his vast array of skills, he was able to pull companies like Affiliated Foods and National Steel Car out from the weeds and into prominence.

Trumping the Dollar with Jordan Lindsey

Shortly before his inauguration, just over a year ago, then President-Elect Donald J. Trump declared to a reporter that the U.S. Dollar was too strong. Mr. Trump, who has a degree in Economics from the Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania, was not the least bit unsure of his assertion.

At that moment anyone hearing his declaration, and who happened to be holding an extended position in the USD against other major world currencies may have felt a little concerned. The president of the United States has god-like powers to influence financial markets with his words.

When Jordan Lindsey, founder of JCL Capital, advises that forex traders execute on their plans part of that fulfillment requires that we pay attention. When giants speak, their words echo causing waves on our price charts. That can result in swinging volatility, the likes of which can quickly blow out your account.

The question Mr. Lindsey asked is can you become a millionaire trading forex? The answer to that question is that you certainly can. However, as Jordan regularly advises you must have a good long-term plan and stick to it. Reason with the mindset of an investor, not a gambler.

No one knows the future with absolute certainty. That is why we study the market, listen to the news, watch YouTube videos, and read different bloggers. To trade your plan successfully, you should know when to move your money to safety and when to deploy it. Furthermore, you should understand prudent money management, and always practice it.

The internet has democratized the forex market. Thanks to the World Wide Web and retail forex trading platforms, anyone can become wealthy. As Jordan Lindsey says, remember to stay the course and pay attention. The wise forex trader would take heed of the utterances coming from Mr. Trump and other critical influencers of money and markets. Like it or not, we exist in an age where one tweet can wipe out or create hundreds, thousands, or even millions of dollars in your forex account.

Why The Frontera Fund Was Created

The press play an important role in any democracy and without them society descends into autocratic chaos. This is why the events of 2007 laid the foundations upon which the Frontera Fund is built. Joe Arpaio was already known as an opponent of illegal immigration, but his decision to use his authority as sheriff to harass and imprison reporters for trying to cover the controversy surrounding him is a truly low blow regardless of how you think about it. That censorship of media is a horrific thing that can’t be allowed to go on no matter how short it is or how minor the severity.

 

When Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin went to Arizona to cover the controversy surrounding Joe Arpaio they understood they wouldn’t necessarily get a warm welcome, but they didn’t expect him to abuse his power in such an obvious way. That led the duo to rethink what the story was about and what they were going to do. They wanted to make a difference and show people that Joe Arpaio wasn’t merely trying to enforce the law. They wanted to stand up for those who were the potential victims of Joe Arpaio and stop anything like this from happening.

 

The Frontera Fund is dedicated to the cause of supporting immigration and those that are specifically fought against by Arpaio. The fund is specifically dedicated to fighting fro civil rights, human rights, and migrant rights in America. There is something clearly important about these rights when you look at the history of America. America is a country founded by immigrants and it’s very clear that it will prosper as long it remains so. Stopping the likes of the natives is an absolutely important part of making sure America is able to return to what made it great in the first place.

 

After years of fighting the Frontera Fund is facing it’s greatest challenge yet. The rise of Donald Trump and his rhetoric makes it clear that the battle is going to continue. His pardoning of Joe Arpaio has also shown that there is so much work left to do. The most important to fight is when things don’t seem like they are going the way they need to. By fighting back the Frontera Fund wants to change the direction towards what it needs to be in order to protect the basic things that make America what it is now.

Getting to Know Betsy ‘the Grizzly Bear’ DeVos

The idea that grizzly bears are surrounding schools ready to attack sounds like the premise of some B horror movie, but it seems to be what Betsy DeVos thinks schools across the United States should worry about. Schools need guns to deal with bears. This is the biggest story linked to the new Secretary of Education for the United States.

 

Betsy DeVos is a name that many Michigan residents know, but she was relatively unknown throughout the rest of the country until her bear attack story. It seems that she has become infamous, which is something Betsy did not love though she did not make any public statements about the fallout she received after making those comments on live television. Betsy was live because she was being interviewed by the senate for the position that she was later appointed to. Learn more: http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2017/10/devos_family_stryker_heir_make.html

 

Some of her answers may seem laughable and her positions controversial, which is probably why the senate’s vote was split when it came to voting her in or out. It was Mike Pence, the sitting VP, who casted the deciding vote that helped Betsy DeVos become the Secretary of Education of the country. This move was met with criticism though President Trump’s presidency is no stranger to controversy. Betsy may have been successful, but she was labeled a simpleton.

 

The people in Michigan who have seen her work the political system know that she is far from that. Her devotion to Christianity gives her the drive to reach her goals, one being the introduction of school choice. Betsy wants all Americans to be given the opportunity to attend whatever school they want, such as religious schools. She wants people to receive school vouchers that would allow them to give taxpayer money to the school of their choice. The problem is that she also does not want government oversight–just the money, which is where her argument falters. Still, her fortune and determination led her to some major wins in Michigan though other issues sprang up.

 

Some of the state’s poorest people had to stand by and see nearby public schools close, which is probably something Betsy didn’t expect. Students from poor neighborhoods now have to walk miles or take a few buses to get to a charter school.

 

Many wonder if Betsy is hoping to take the entire country down the same road. Those who think she is a simpleton should not underestimate the power of her money and the power of her devotion. Mike Cox, who was Michigan’s state attorney for some time, knows that her hard-headed determination should not be ignored. He has seen her wield the power of her money in order to get opponents out of the way and further her agenda. Trump definitely chose a visionary to be his Secretary of Education, even if her vision seems limited.

Elysium Health Works to Support Your Cellular Health

Elysium Health is one of the newer health startups in the supplement scene in the United States. It was founded by an MIT researcher Dr. Leonard Guarente, who has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging throughout his career.

The lack of regulation in the supplement industry has long wielded a double-edged sword. It has enabled some of the largest nutritional supplement producers to quickly bring new and innovative products to market without having to abide by rules imposed on medical drug manufacturers. However, this low barrier to entry and lack of oversight also attracted less-than-scrupulous players to the industry, causing it to become saturated with products of questionable value and efficacy.

Dr. Guarente saw this as an opportunity to create a consumer health company that would gain a high level of trust from its consumers and stand out in the industry. Elysium Health sells Basis, a daily supplement designed to support cellular health and optimization.

Basis supports cellular health by increasing NAD+ levels in humans. This coenzyme is essential for hundreds of vital functions that our cells are responsible for, like energy creation and circadian rhythms. Basis is able to increase the levels of NAD+ in the cells of its users. This is especially helpful for seniors because levels of NAD+ decline in our cells as we age.

Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. Monthly subscriptions to the supplement start at $50 per month, but discounts are available for those that decide to purchase a six-month or twelve-month subscription of the supplement.

Elysium Health has ensured that Basis is vegetarian and vegan, gluten-free and nut-free, and that it contains no artificial flavors or colors. Thus, even if you are on a diet or have allergies, Basis adheres to strict dietary restrictions.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey Unrelenting In Their Fight for Immigration Rights through Frontera Fund

Opponents of former Maricopa County Sherriff 85-year-old Joe Arpaio applauded when it turned out that he was to serve a jail term after being having been found guilty of criminal contempt mid last year. However, this was not to be as he was pardoned by President Donald Trump a few weeks later. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: https://michael-lacey.com/ and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/

He, therefore, will not be locked up nor will he face any other consequences for the wrongs he committed. Mr. Arpaio has been a staunch supporter of Mr. Donald Trump from way back even before he became president.

When Mr. Trump was fronting the birther movement against President Barrack Obama claiming that the former president was not born in the US hence does not deserve to be president, Mr. Arpaio was one of his biggest supporters. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

This is widely believed to have played a huge role in the President’s decision to pardon the controversial law enforcement officer. Despite being a well-known figure both in Arizona and at the national stage, he lost his bid for re-election as County Sherriff after serving for six terms in the same capacity amounting to a whopping 24 years.

In late 2011, a United States district court judge issued a court order against Mr. Arpaio and his office, for profiling people especially those with a Spanish descent while also bringing to the fore several examples whereby innocent people were profiled and as a result violating their civil rights.

As many would expect Mr. Arpaio and his team did not stop the profiling and violation of the civil rights of the Latinos and as a result in another ruling of May 2013, the Judge found that Mr. Arpaio and his team had involved themselves in racial profiling.

The Sheriff and group admitted having violated the judge’s orders issued earlier on though they blamed their actions on miscommunications and other trivial issues to have brought the confusion.

However, the evidence presented before the court revealed that they willfully and knowingly violated the judge’s orders. Mr. Arpaio protested that he did not understand the ruling and was found guilty of criminal contempt by the federal district judge Susan Bolt in late July 2017.

Mr. Arpaio and his team were also not friendly with anyone who had a different opinion on the way they carried out their duties. For instance, a local newspaper, The Phoenix New Times had for so long called out the Sherriff’s office for their wrongdoings.

Mr. Arpaio ordered his team to arrest the publication’s executives Mr. Jim Larkin and Mr. Michael Lacey from their home in the middle of the night. The duo then went to seek legal redress and argued that they were detained illegally.

Following a long legal battle, the pair won and they were awarded more than $3.7 million as settlement for the lawsuit. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin used a significant portion of the money to set up and run the Frontera Fund which works to support groups that support the rights of people of Spanish descent in the state of Arizona.
