Ryan Seacrest Will Once Again Return To American Idol When The Show Comes Back To TV

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.

Recovery From Substance Abuse Is An Evolving Process For Recovery Expert Victoria Doramus

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.

When it comes to giving advice to other people, Victoria Doramus urges people to be honest with themselves and others. This recovery expert believes that change is possible for everyone, but a person has to truly be willing to change their old behaviors. See her closer on Tradesy.

Under leadership of Jose Auriemo Neto, JHSF soars to become leading developer in Brazil

Over the last forty years, Brazil has begun developing into one of the leading economies of Latin America. This transformation has been profound and far-reaching, with a country once known for being an underdeveloped third-world jungle becoming a magnet for the global elite and foreign capital.

One of the driving forces behind this transformation has been the ability of Brazilian companies to help the country pick itself up by the bootstraps. One way in which the country is being transformed into a highly developed and dynamic economy is through the creation of some of the most luxurious and sought-after real estate developments in all of Latin America.

Although it was little more than the sprawling slum 30 years ago, today, the city of Sao Paulo ranks among the most developed and thriving cities in all of Latin America. One company, JHSF Participacaoes, has been instrumental in transforming the city into a paragon of development and class. Today, if one were to stroll the streets of Sao Paulo, they can be excused for mistaking their surroundings for Paris or Hong Kong.

And it has been men like Jose Auriemo Neto, the CEO of JHSF Participacaoes, who have led the way. One example is the Parque Cidade Jardim development, a sprawling complex of mixed-use buildings that has become one of the most coveted properties in all of Sao Paulo. Parque Cidade Jardim features nine high-rise condominium towers, four Class A office towers and a gigantic, 180-store shopping center that features Luis Vuitton, Reebok Academy and a Cinemark mega-theater.

This property was developed from a badly dilapidated slum. Many people said that there was no value in redeveloping the plot of land, which is located adjacent to one of the busiest highways in all of Brazil. But Jose Auriemo Neto saw things differently. In 2001, he began drawing up plans for the gigantic complex. After running a series of feasibility studies, it was determined that there was potential business to build Parque Cidade Jardim. Today, Parque Cidade Jardim is completely occupied.
