It is interesting to know that about $100 billion is spent on bottled water by people from over the world today. If you told someone that selling bottled water would be a great business 20 years ago, they would have termed your idea as preposterous. It sounded the same it would sound today is someone says that air selling would be a lucrative business several decades to come. Water is an abundant natural resource in most parts of the world today but this doesn’t mean that people don’t still experience water crisis. However, the water crisis may not last any longer since companies such as Waiakea Water have come up strongly to correct the problem.

This company is based in Hawaii and it distributes its own bottled water in this area and also across the world.

What many people haven’t realized is that the bottled water from this company has a high alkaline level. The high alkaline level ensures that the heartburn and acid reflux problems have been dealt with. One amazing thing about Waiakea Water is the commitment it has on the environment.

2012 is the year Waiakea Water. was founded and today it is the only company in Hawaii that supplies volcanic bottled water. The energy used in manufacturing the plastic bottles of this company is about 85 percent less. On the other hand, the manufacturing process of these plastic bottles just takes 10 percent of the energy available. Most people don’t know that creating one plastic bottle may take more than 5 times the quantity of water the bottle holds.

Waiakea Water is set to make the product different from the rest in many ways. The limit that the company has at the moment is only the sky. It is evident that Waiakea Water is growing and expanding by bounds and leaps.

Since 2015 Jeff Yastine has been the editorial director of Banyan Hill Publishing. He has been providing commentary about financial matters and other things for the past 25 years. 17 years of his professional career was spent on the PBS shows Nightly Business Report where he was a senior correspondent. After he left this position he joined The Oxford Club LLC where he managed the staff as well as the freelance journalists they use to publish articles. View Jeff Yastine’s profile at LinkedIn.

In April 2013, Jeff Yastine joined Newsmax Media, Inc. He was the director of financial newsletters at this publishing house for almost two and a half years. It was in August 2015 that he joined The Sovereign Society which changed its name to Banyan Hill Publishing in 2016. His company uses financial experts from around the world to scout out promising investing opportunities. They also publish articles about how to preserve your wealth and protect your assets. He encourages people to handle their own investments without relying on so-called financial advisors who are only really looking out for their own interests when handling other people’s money.

Lately, Jeff Yastine has been writing about an investment opportunity that has been around for decades but which people inside the financial industry don’t want regular investors to know about. He calls these the Kennedy Accounts because the law authorizing them was signed by President John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s. When he first started talking about these people assumed they were a scam because they sounded too good to be true. Jeff Yastine says that they are anything but a scam.

The Kennedy Accounts enable investors to buy shares in companies at a discount. This can range from $5 a share on up to $25 a share. This was enacted by Kennedy because he wanted to get the economy back on track which meant getting regular investors to buy shares which would funnel billions into public companies. They would then spend the money growing their businesses and thus the entire economy.

Because of the Kennedy Accounts Jeff Yastine says that investors have made huge sums of money from modest investments. He points to a postal worker who invested just $45 and made over $60,000 from it. The reason why those in the financial industry don’t want regular investors to know about these is because they don’t get a huge commission when people make these investments.

Some people seem to be lucky in life, particularly when it comes to predicting what the markets are going to do. Shervin Pishevar is one of those people. He’s a venture capitalist and has had success because of investing early on many tech companies.

He broke his Twitter silence during the first week of February with some market predictions.

Shervin Pishevar knew he was going to go on a tweet storm. He numbered all of his tweets to make it easier for everyone to follow what he was talking about.

The very first tweet provides the greatest prediction: The market will drop 6000 points in aggregate over the next few months. That poses a problem for investors. It means that not only will 2018 gains be lost but also dig into the 2017 gains.

What are people doing about it?

 

Well, it seems as though quite a few people follow Shervin Pishevar. He has over 90,000 followers on Twitter and some of these are blogs who have decided to share his message. As though he predicted the future, the market already showed signs of instability the very next day. Further, 500 points were lost within the hour.

Trump once said that if the market falls by 1,000 points in a single day, they should be booted out. Shervin Pishevar decided to launch the hashtag #dumptrump in response to that.

It seems as though the predictions of Shervin Pishevar are coming true. Investors have no where to hide because indices, bonds, and more are overvalued and losing points. Even bitcoin is crashing down, though Shervin estimates that it will do so for a while and then stabilize and grow stronger after a while.

While Shervin Pishevar can’t predict the future, he is good at reading trends. It seems as though he may be on to something with the way the market is currently looking.

In 2014 there was a CNN iReport that named America’s Healthcare Recruiter and that recruiter has Brian Torchin. Currently the Chief Executive Office of Health Care Recruitment Counselors (HCRC) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Brian knows more than any other just how important staffing is to the healthcare marketplace. His expertise was not gained by studying a book or going to business school, but through real world knowledge of actually working the healthcare industry.

Brian recently sat down for an interview with the folks at PhillyPurge.com and discussed the difficulties he faces in the Philadelphia staffing world. He believes that healthcare staffing is very much different than staffing in any other industry because of the real world knowledge that the recruiter must have. Healthcare facilities tend to stay focused on providing their customers with the very best quality of service and they don’t generally focus on recruitment. That is why it is of utmost importance for them to hire a firm like HCRC, whose recruiters know what the healthcare industry is like, to find them the talent that they want.

Brian says that the healthcare field is also drastically different because hospitals and healthcare facilities don’t have the option of constantly rotating their talent. Their customers have an expectation and need to have a consistency of care for a long period of time. That means that the recruiter has to get it right the first time. Once a facility and a recruiter build trust in each other, that bond is there to stay. A good recruiter isn’t someone who keeps the talent pool full or rotating but ideally one who eliminates the need for a pool or rotation to exist at all. Read more on vimeo.com about Brian Torchin

Brian graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Exercise Science and went on to graduate from New York College of Chiropractic. After working as a chiropractor for five years, he decided to move into talent recruitment as the Director of Medical Marketing at Practice Management Inc. There, he become one of the top talent recruiters in the Northeast and when he left in 2007, he was one of the best in the nation.

Some people wrongly assume that the economy is going to continue improving each year. Although the economy has some strong areas, there are numerous warning signs that trouble could be ahead. Shervin Pishevar is a prominent investor who spends a lot of time studying economic cycles. He recently tweeted for 21 hours about the economy. Most of his predictions for the future were negative. He believes that investors need to be prepared for a major crash in the stock market.

 

 

Inflation

 

When the economy is growing, the Federal Reserve increases interest rates. For many years, the Federal Reserve kept interest rates low in order to stimulate the economy. There are many people who believe that interest rates are going to increase rapidly in the years ahead. Rates are already much higher than just a year ago.

 

As interest rates increase, inflation tends to increase as well. There are many people who struggle to afford basic necessities when prices increase. This is something that few people are prepared for. Click Here for more information.

 

 

Stock Market Collapse

 

The stock market has been on an amazing run for the past decade. However, Shervin Pishevar believes that this is about to end. He predicts that 2018 is going to be a terrible year for the stock market. Investors who are not prepared for additional volatility are going to have various issues.

 

One way for investors to protect themselves is by investing in gold. Shervin Pishevar has a substantial financial position in gold. He believes that the value of gold will increase rapidly once the stock market starts to decline. Over the years, this has been a solid investment during a recession.

 

 

Cryptocurrency

 

Bitcoin has increased in price considerably over the past year. Shervin Pishevar holds a large financial position in various cryptocurrencies. He believes that 2018 will be a rough year for the entire asset class. However, he views any drop in value as a buying opportunity. He still believes that cryptocurrency has the potential to impact various industries in the economy. Although the economy may falter, there are still opportunities for people to make money.
