Matt Badiali is a man who stands out in the financial world for his ability at spotting profitable stocks in the volatile natural resource sector. He originally began his education and career as a geologist. He traveled all over the world examining the natural resource assets of reputable companies and spoke with CEOs about the business side of a natural resource asset. While studying for his Ph.D. a friend of his helped him to realize his potential in finance. In 2008 he invested in a resource company that all his family and friends believed was a terrible investment, however, he ended up making a substantial profit. It was this experience that gave him name recognition in the world of finance. His newsletter the Real Wealth Strategist is a guide for those who are interested in learning about potential picks in the natural resource space.
With years of experience as a geologist, Matt Badiali is very knowledgeable of the copper market. He currently believes the supply of copper is much lower than the demand. He believes that market participants are the reason for the extreme disconnect between the price of copper and its intrinsic value. Mr. Badiali feels that it is likely that copper deficits will persist for the next few years. He is betting that copper prices are going to rise in the long term because of the electric vehicle. The government of China is going to require its automakers to sell a specific portion of vehicles as electric vehicles.
The electric vehicle is going to require much more copper than normal cars on the road today. Matt Badiali believes that the trade war between China and the United States is the reason that the speculators have driven the price of copper down. Many financial experts have been very critical of the trade war and believe that if it continues, the global economy will fall into recession. During times of recession, copper prices end up falling because demand falls. As a geologist, Matt Badiali understands too well that it takes several years to get a new copper mine into production. He feels that this trade war fear is irrational and that copper is on the verge of entering into an extreme bull market.

By early June of 2017, all signs pointed to Ryan Seacrest being definitively done with American Idol. He had been at the center of the legendary talent competition for its entire fifteen-year run but the long-running show was cancelled in April 2016 by Fox. The following May saw ABC come out as the winner of a bidding competition to be able to bring American Idol back to the airwaves. The interesting thing was that ABC is the same network that had just picked up Ryan Seacrest as the new co-host along with Kelly Ripa on the networks long-running morning talk show that was being rebranded as Live With Kelly and Ryan.
According to Forbes, once it was announced that American Idol would indeed be returning to the air waves, most would automatically assume that Ryan Seacrest’s return to the show would be a given. All that was left to do was to work out the financial details through negotiation. What happened next was not expected as Ryan Seacrest was presented with a lowball type of offer for his services on the show that he was synonymous with. The real fact is that considering the success that Ryan Seacrest was already experiencing with Live With Kelly and Ryan as well as his continued work with his nationally syndicated radio program On Air with Ryan and his heavy involvement in his men’s fashion line Ryan Seacrest Polish/Distinction, it is hard to argue that he really needed the American Idol gig in order to maintain his current level of success. Ryan, a TV host and producer, is also kept busy with his heavy involvement in his philanthropic organization the Ryan Seacrest Foundation that has made a commitment to improving the experience for hospitalized children.
At the end of the day though, the folks behind American Idol were not interested in the thought of going forward without the person most associated with the show and the offer that Ryan Seacrest was initially given was amended accordingly. This served to solidify the fact that Ryan Seacrest will once again grace the airwaves as the host of American Idol.
Many people all over the world are in recovery from drug and/or alcohol abuse. In a recent article on the Medium website, recovery expert Victoria Doramus relates her own life-changing experiences with recovery from addiction.
According to IMDB, after developing problems with cocaine and the amphetamine Adderall, Victoria Doramus attended her first in-patient rehab center in 2011. She spent 45 days learning about herself and how to acquire and use ‘tools’ of sobriety, then moved back to where she was living in Los Angeles.
Although she left the rehab center with more knowledge regarding herself and addiction, Ms. Doramus did not fully grasp that she had a disease that would require constant effort on her part to recover from. As is frequently the case, Victoria Doramus had to hit rock bottom and lose virtually everything before she could begin her own recovery on a serious level.
Trying to find a ‘geographical cure’ by moving to other states, even to London, England, didn’t put an end to Victoria’s addiction issues. What it took for her to get on the right track was a seven-month stay at a hardcore, 12-Step-oriented rehab program in Austin, Texas.
Now living in New York City, Victoria Doramus is an active member of AA, and is also actively working with several other non-profit groups that deal with addiction-related issues. Victoria maintains a goal of opening a halfway house for people who want to get sober, and she works hard every day to remain humble and moving in the right direction.
