U.S. Money Reserve Explains Gold And Silver For 2018

Posted on by 0 comment

One ounce of gold is worth roughly $1,300, whereas one ounce of silver is currently about $16.60. Both are used in various products, including computers, through the primary reason people are crazy, crazy, crazy about gold and silver is that they’re used in all kinds of jewelry, spread all over the globe.

Obviously, the price of gold and silver – all precious metals, for that matter – change on a regular basis, even if it’s only a dollar at a time for gold, and ten cents at a time for silver.

So, what do the forecasts for silver and gold, respectively, look like for 2018? U.S. Money Reserve recently penned an article that contains just about everything one needs to know about where each is headed. Learn more about US Money Reserve: http://spectrumlocalnews.com/tx/austin/news/2017/11/16/us-money-reserve-gives-to-harvey-relief.html

The Breakdown On Silver

HSBC thinks an ounce of silver will sell for just short of $18.00 by the end of 2018, whereas CIBC World Markets and Sharps Pixley largely agree. Goldman Sachs has one of the lowest professional estimates for the price of silver by the end of the year, staking a prediction of just $17.20 per ounce.

Either way, investors and other silver purchasers can expect the precious metal to hold true to its price throughout 2018, “if not steadily increase throughout the year,” says U.S. Money Reserve’s John Rothans. Read more: US Money Reserve | Twitter and US Money Reserve | Facebook

The supply of silver and how it’s likely to change in coming months isn’t clear. However, news of new silver deposits, no matter what country they’re in, should make the price of silver either hold or drop slightly.

And Here’s What’s Going On With Gold

When the U.S. Dollar is weak, gold is strong. When gold can be bought all throughout the world, it’s relatively strong. More money to spend due to globally higher incomes means gold is strong. According to U.S. Money Reserve, 2018 looks good for gold.

Goldman Sachs thinks, by December, gold will hit $1,375 per ounce; ABN AMRO says $1,400; and PRICE Futures Group makes one of the boldest predictions, foreseeing a $1,500 ounce.

Scott Rocklage and 5AM Lead Financial Support for Muscular Dystrophy Research

According to recent press releases, Expansion Therapeutics has been gathering Series A financing in order to increase its number of drugs that target genetic disorders such as myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1), which is the primary cause of adult onset muscular dystrophy. This financing effort was headed by 5AM Ventures, Novartis Venture Fund and Kleiner Perskins, with participation from Alexandria Venture Investments and RA Capital Management. Scott Rocklage, Ph.D., the Managing Partner of 5AM Ventures and also the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Expansion Therapeutics, stated that Expansion Therapeutics had formulated a plan to use the capital efficiently in order to advance the number of drugs that target RNA molecules in diseases like DM1.

 

Certain RNAs, which are molecules from DNA that have been changed to proteins, reach toxic levels in people with this genetic tendency and cause the resulting nervous system deterioration associated with DM1. Currently, there is no effective treatment for DM1. Expansion Therapeutics has based its scientific methods on research from The Scripps Research Institute’s Matthew D. Disney, Ph.D., who, according to Scott Rocklage, is the leader of the scientific team that is conducting the research.

 

Scott Rocklage is the founder and Managing Partner over 5AM Ventures. Scott Rocklage received a B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley and a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from the Massachusetts institute of Technology (MIT). During his time at MIT, Scott Rocklage performed research in the laboratory of Richard Schrock, who received the Nobel Peace Price in Chemistry in 2005.

 

With more than 30 years of healthcare management experience, Scott Rocklage has had success having medications like Teslascan, Cubicin and Omniscan receive FDA approval. Scott Rocklage has more than 30 United States patents for personal and co-authored inventions, and a large number of his published works have been peer-reviewed. Scott Rockladge also has held many leadership roles such as the chairman and CEO of Cubist Pharmaceuticals, President and CEO of Nycomed Salutar and is currently the Chairman of the Board for Kinestral, Cidara and Rennovia.

 

Scott Rocklage and 5AM Ventures are looking forward to continuing to support these efforts to develop drugs to combat genetic diseases for patients who have few treatment options. All the participants in this joint approach are optimistic about future results, and Scott Rocklage will continue to leverage his financial and medical experience to advance this work.

Larkin & Lacey

What Arpaio Did

As the Sheriff of Maricopa County, he told the officers who were subordinate to him to pick out “illegal aliens.” Unfortunately, there is no sure-fire way to actually know, for sure, whether or not somebody has that status. So, his subordinates ended up going around, harassing anyone who had Hispanic-looking physiognomies.

That wasn’t the only crime he did, though. Arpaio also tried to silence any citizen who had an opposing opinion against him. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were two such people. In the summer of 2017, Lacey and Larkin were horrified to learn that Arpaio was set free of his racial profiling accusations by President Trump. They made sure to keep on top of the issue and publish as much about it as they could.

Lacey and Larkin had run into problems with Arpaio years earlier when he tried to wrongfully arrest them. Ever since that unjust event, they have been passionately exposing Arpaio’s abuse of power.

The Underlying Context of What Arpaio Did

When talking about what Arpaio did and why he should not have been pardoned, we must talk about American history and the diverse experiences of Americans.

Prior to the arrival of Columbus, the Americas were inhabited by native Amerindians. The natives were the majority. Eventually, Europeans arrived in the America’s en masse. The American Indians died off in large numbers and were pushed off their lands.  Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Jim Larkin | Angel.co

Descendants of Europeans created a political entity—America–where they were the majority. So, America was a place where most of the people were white and orientated with Christianity. In order to fit in and have the most social mobility and value in society, it helped to appear white and Christian.

The demographics stayed mostly white and Christian until the middle of the 20th century, when the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 was passed. Also, in the 1960s, centuries of social justice efforts culminated into new considerations about the civil rights of minorities.

As a result of the change in thought concerning racial minorities and immigration, non-white people of various religions poured into the country at an unprecedented rate. Many non-white immigrants were fleeing violent conditions in their countries that could actually be traced back to American political interests.

So, for decades, non-white people—or at least people who are not considered to be “white” in the traditional American sense, have been flooding the United States. Even though non-whites have a larger presence than ever, they are still subjected to prejudice, exclusion and racism. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://frontpageconfidential.com/michael-lacey-jim-larkin-arpaio-frontera-fund-first-amendment/ and http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/06/23/jim-larkin-michael-lacey-make-the-list-of-civil-rights-protectors/

Society still thinks of them as “others,” and individuals are classified by race before individuality—which is very condescending. This is why people like Sheriff Arpaio think that anyone with black hair, brown skin and Amerindian features is an “illegal alien.”

What Arpaio Should Have Done

Arpaio should have understood that each human being is unique, and not every person of a given ethnic group is “illegal.” Also, he should have understood that there has been a long, rich history of Hispanic people residing in the United States of America.

US Money Reserve

The first Mercury retrograde of 2018 will begin on Thursday, March 22. This occurrence can bring uncertainty, miscommunication, unanticipated technological breakdowns, and totally unexpected visits from people in the distant past. It will affect everyone. Learn more about US Money Reserve: https://www.manta.com/c/mml8pv9/u-s-money-reserve-inc and https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/us-money-reserve-president-to-hold-emergency-gold-conference-300486354.html

Mercury rules communications. Those born under the Aries astrological sign are among the most impulsive people in the world. These individuals act quickly without second guessing themselves, making them appear confident and courageous. This impulsivity can also result in disastrous results due to lack of forethought and planning.

People will not feel like themselves, and It will be difficult to distinguish reality from fantasy. Everything that individuals plan is highly likely not to turn out as predicted at all.

Irregular events could happen such as oversleeping and being late for work and appointments. Airplane flights are far more likely to be delayed. People are advised to be flexible and loose, since plans are far more likely to require altering and rearranging. The natural inclination of Mercury is to create chaos and turmoil in our lives.

It is advisable not to make any permanent decisions until Mercury goes direct. Errors are far more likely to occur when Mercury is in retrograde.

When this retrograde occurs while Mercury is in Aries, an individual’s social awareness intuition is likely to be off. It will be much easier to offend others than it ordinarily is.

It is advisable to think before speaking. It is far easier during this turbulent astrological time to make unreasonable promises, break confidences unwarily, or to look silly telling jokes that fall flat. Read more: US Money Reserve | Bizjournals and US Money Researve | Instagram

Folks in an individual’s past history are likely to show up out of the blue. It is advisable to be on the alert the individual may find himself in very strange social dilemmas.

The universe is being deceptive, and it enjoys the chaos and confusion it creates. However, this may give the individual a chance to get closure around past relationships and associations. These experiences may be painful, or they may provide serious relief to any lingering questions that may have remained unanswered.

The U.S. Money Reserve, led by Phillip Diehl, is one of America’s largest distributors of precious metals. All their metals were produced by the United States Mint. Clients of U.S. Money Reserve purchase coins guaranteed for their content, purity, and weight by the U.S. government.

Enhanced Athlete Takes Down Lawsuit Bully

Enhanced Athlete is a Wyoming based company centered around bodybuilding supplements and fitness. In 2017, Nutrition Distribution, another supplement company, took them to court and lost. Nutrition Distribution, LLC v. Enhanced Athlete, Inc, et al. (E.D. Cal., Case N. 2:17-cv-2069-JAM-CKD) is the lawsuit Nutrition Distribution filed against Enhanced Athlete, but it’s not the only one. Nutrition Distribution has filed against many other smaller supplement companies, many of which simply paid a settlement payment to the company rather than pay exhaustive legal fees. Nutrition Distribution defines itself as a leader in the supplement industry. Their reason for the multiple lawsuits is a claim that their sales have been harmed by the other companies false advertising.

 

Enhanced Athlete refused to pay the settlement payments Nutritional Distribution demanded. They chose to fight the bigger company in court. They brought out the evidence that Nutrition Distribution has created many of these “shakedown” lawsuits to bully smaller supplement companies and negotiate a settlement payment. Enhanced Athlete also argued that Nutrition Distribution would not be able to prove their initial statement, and they would not be able to bring up evidence of losing sales directly related to the Enhanced Athlete’s advertising.

 

The Court agreed with Enhanced Athlete and found that Nutritional Distribution did not have enough evidence to substantiate their claim. The Court did not see a direct relation from Enhanced Athlete’s supplement products and advertising to any loss of Nutritional Distribution’s supplement sales. Scott Cavell, Enhanced Athlete’s CEO was pleased that they were able to stop Nutrition Distribution’s shakedown pattern, but mentioned that if other smaller supplement companies don’t do the same thing, Nutrition Distribution will continue its petty lawsuits against others.

 

Enhanced Athlete is a company that sells supplements for fitness and focuses on bodybuilding. Their website has a store with all of the supplements they have available. They have two sister companies, Enhanced Gear and Enhanced Coaching, which can be found using the tabs in the menu on the main website. Enhanced Gear is the company’s clothing line, while Enhanced Coaching has tips, tricks, and coaching for bodybuilding and body fitness. Enhanced Coaching allows you to select and pay for the coaching program that suits your needs. Customers will be contacted by one of their fitness coaches to begin training. Social media links are available on their website for additional product information and lifestyle tips.
