Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is known for many things. Her pleasant demeanor, politeness and determination are just a few of her great assets. What many people misjudge is her willingness to fight tooth and nail for a cause she believes in.
Before her name was submitted for nomination to serve as Secretary of Education in the Trump Administration, DeVos was a very important figure in Michigan Republican politics. She served for 10 years as the state’s party chair. She was also responsible for helping shape a great deal of legislation, along with her husband, businessman and philanthropist Dick DeVos.
Both of the DeVoses come from very wealthy families. Her husband is the son of Amway co-founder Richard DeVos. She was born Betsy Prince in the small town of Holland, Michigan. Her father, Edgar, was a rich industrialist and also heavily involved in Michigan Republican politics.
According to many who know Mrs. DeVos, she is a fighter. And she has the money and the clout to make people who oppose her pay. But even she and her husband’s deep pockets could not help in 1992 when her initiative to force tax payers to pay for charter schools failed.
Betsy DeVos firmly believed in school choice and the voucher program. She fought to help children of poor backgrounds, who were trapped in failing schools get a better education. While Michigan tax payers weren’t exactly on board with a tax hike for charter schools, she managed to convince several surrounding states to get on board.
Although DeVos’s intentions may have been well taken, she has plenty of critics.
One of the biggest knocks on her charter school agenda was the issue of the lack of oversight. Her detractors accused her of purposefully attempting to steer funds away from public schools to private schools. Others say DeVos’s grand experiment was a grand failure. According to the numbers, many of the charter schools are performing well below the national numbers.
During her confirmation, many of her detractors complained that she lacks the real-life experience of students and families who were forced to use financial aid.
In spite of the stumbling blocks, Mrs. DeVos is determined to work with her political foes to gain a better understanding and surpass expectations.
While National Association of Teacher President Randi Weingarten calls DeVos dangerous and suggests she is not one to be underestimated, she says she is willing to work with her. Mrs. DeVos has extended the olive branch. Hopefully, both sides will come to some type of consensus on how to make education the best it can be for students all across the U.S.

It may have taken more than 14 years, but Jeff Glass is looking like he is with the NHL to stay. Appearing in a total of six games since making his debut with the Blackhawks on December 29, 2017, Jeff Glass earned his first NHL victory after allowing three goals on 45 shots, ultimately defeating the the Edmonton Oilers. It looks as if this victory insures that Glass has a roster spot with the Blackhawks for the rest of the year. This might just be what the oldest rookie in the NHL deserves after persevering in the minor leagues and Russia for so long.

The name Joe Arpaio has a strange effect on many in the U.S. as the very mention of his name can reveal much about the political ideology of an individual.
To conservatives, former Maricopa County Sheriff is something of a precursor to U.S. President Donald Trump and his views on immigrants entering from Mexico and further afield; the work of the man who styled himself as the “toughest sheriff in America” has placed him in direct conflict with the former owners of Village Voice Media, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who have personally felt the wrath of Joe Arpaio.

The pardon of Joe Arpaio by Trump was met with scorn by both Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey as the two campaigners for minority group rights had expected the decision to be made and believe the former Sheriff had hung his hat with the President to ensure he received his pardon.

Matt Badiali recaps the rise and fall of metals in recent history, giving foresight into the future prospect of metals.
The mining industry survived a brutal 6 years of metal prices plummeting, with the exception of some metals whose prices rebounded in 2017. In order for the prices of any commodity to rise it needs to apply the formula in which the demand exceeds supply.
In certain instances, such as the case of zinc, a lack of investment caused the supply range to fall below demand. Copper, is another example, whose price went up 27% since early 2016. Logically, this will be another metal whose supply will struggle to meet demand.
Deducing from his astute observation, Matt relays that 2018 will see the rise of another metal’s price. This metal happens to be platinum. The price chart of platinum features data compiled over the period 6 years, from 2011 to 2017.
In 2018, it wouldn’t surprise me to see platinum prices rise 25%. Here’s why…#Platinum #copper #Zinc #miningindustry #PreciousMetals #investing #commodities #markets #banyanhill $PLAThttps://t.co/ExzrvFilKF pic.twitter.com/2DzfDzmXuR
— Matt Badiali (@Matt_B_Guru) December 22, 2017
The chart demonstrates a steady decline from 2011 to 2016. The price dropped by more than 50% in 2016. This was followed by a brief rebound in 2017. Then the price fell to its lowest of 2017.
So, why, according to Matt Badiali, would this trend for platinum change in 2018? He cites a simple answer to this question: supply cannot keep up with demand. The World Platinum Investment Council reports that the year 2017 will end leaving a deficit of around 15,000 ounces. The council also expects the supply and demand gap to widen. The demand for platinum in 2018 will rise by 2%, while the supply will fall by 1% amounting to a deficit of 250,000 ounces.
This kind of a deficit was enough to put off platinum sellers in the past. A lack of significant increase in price left no incentive for sellers. This ultimately brought down supply. This is one reason why Badiali expects platinum price to rise in 2018. The other reason is sentiment. As aforementioned, the reason why copper prices shot up in 2017 was because electrical vehicles were perceived to raise copper demand. Essentially, the price of copper rose because of perceived demand.
While platinum’s demand fell because of the Volkswagen scandal. Since platinum’s main commercial use is in diesel catalytic converters, its value went down when the company admitted to false diesel efficiency. The fall of Volkswagen’s perception directly affected the price of platinum. Investors withdrew from investing in it because of perceived decline in platinum in the coming days.
However, platinum is still rare compared to other metals and since, most of the existing mines are running out — this will spur demand. In addition, Europeans prefer diesel cars, which will further raise demand, altogether changing platinum’s fortune in 2018. Based off this analysis, we can expect the price to rise up to 25%.

Ted has talked about mistakes that one should avoid while planning on their retirements. In his article, he distinguishes the difference between price and value. He insists that one should consider value when planning on their retirement rather than price. This is because the value of an asset cannot be compromised as price can.
Ted also advises on giving priorities to one’s life. He says that these priorities should be paid more attention than other aspects of life. They should act as the strategies that give life a direction and a purpose. In his opinion, one of these priorities should be the retirement plan since at some point, everyone is going to retire.
In his argument, Ted Bauman points out that the valuable assets one has adds up to their net worth. It is this value that helps a person to have a comfortable retirement. Upon retirement, one can then convert his valuable assets to money which they can use for the rest of their lives if they had invested wisely on valuable assets. This is done by selling the assets to the younger generation who are building their lives.
— Ted Bauman Guru (@Ted_B_Guru) November 27, 2017
He adds that basing one’s retirement on the price value can be frustrating and may lead to mystery after retirement. This is because price keeps on changing and it may drop in its value after one has retired leaving them with very little to survive on. This in return may lead to poor health due to stress on how to survive without a source of income.

According to the current inequality, Ted notes that the younger generation is no longer in a position to buy assets from the older generation and the number keeps on increasing. Thus, homes that are taken for granted should be well maintained and taken care of as their value will continue rising as years pass.
Currently, Ted serves at the Banyan Hill Publishing as the editor of Alpha Stock Alert, The Bauman Letter and Plan B Letter. He is a full time writer and researcher who have spent his life in reaching out to people, helping them to live better lives. Read more about Ted Bauman at Ezine Articles

He has also been in the mortgage lending business as well as flipping homes for a profit. Additionally, he has written articles for publication about how to succeed in business and life in general.
It’s in the food industry, though, that Joel Friant has found his greatest success. In 1995 he opened the doors for a restaurant concept he had, serving Thai food as fast food. He also used his love for habanero peppers around this time to launch The Habanero Shaker. At the time he was living in Washington state and this product was successfully launched in several grocery chains there.
For several years Joel Friant had moved on to other industries and businesses but people who knew him kept asking him about his habanero product. He took a course that taught everything you need to know to successfully sell a product online. Matching his interest in online sales and his interest in habanero peppers led to him re-launching his product as The Original Habanero Shaker. It can now be found on Amazon as well as on eBay.
Joel Friant has The Original Habanero Shaker made in the United States. The container contains 100% habanero flakes with no preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors added. As he points out, a habanero pepper rates at 200,000 on the Scoville heat scale which means that it’s really hot, but not so hot that it’s oppressive. They also contain capsaicin which, among other benefits, is a natural painkiller.
Habanero peppers are also very healthy to eat, as Joel Friant likes to point out to people. It can help people lose weight and it also kills unhealthy bacteria. It can help with ulcers, including preventing them, due to how it interacts with the stomach lining. Additionally, it is has a large amount of both vitamins A and C.

The Oxford Club, a community of successful investors and entrepreneurs in Baltimore, Maryland, gives members opportunities to earn good returns on many types of assets. Consisting of 80,000 members in 100 different countries, they deal with assets that include equities, bonds, real estate, collectibles, currencies, and physical property. The high profile social and business connections virtually make the club impervious to all kinds of corruption.
The Oxford Club promotes their activity by publishing monthly newsletters, offering investment research services, and trading recommendation. Overseas clients have the option to participate in investment excursions, seminars, and symposiums alongside ordinary members.
The Secret the Success
An insight on achieving good returns is stated by Karim Rahemtulla in a recent news article known as “The Ultimate Income Checklist.” The Oxford Club buys stocks at huge discounts, compared to the original price, or receives money for examining the change in prices. They’ve had success in major companies such as Wells Fargo, Southwest Airlines, Phillips 66 and U.S Steel. However, users would have to set-up a stock trading account to participate in exchanging stocks. It requires a regular stock trading account and adjusting client services through a personal broker. Aside from the standard requirements, there’s more flexibility towards choosing the level or type of trade account. Rahemtulla recommends the level 5 account, a premium that gives the clients the ability to invest a small amount of capital towards a trade and sell puts of the broker’s money.
Rahemtulla is an option strategist at the Oxford Club and recommends these strategies to avoid losing money because of greed:
