    WEalth Creation And Preservation: "Martin Armstrong: The Forecaster"

    in Education

    Martin Arthur Armstrong (born November 1, 1949 in New Jersey) is the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.


    At age 13, Armstrong began working at a coin and stamp dealership in Pennsauken, New Jersey. After buying a bag of rare Canadian pennies, he became a millionaire in 1965 at the age of 15.


    In September 1999, Armstrong faced prosecution by the SEC and the CFTC for fraud. During the trial, Armstrong was imprisoned for over seven years for civil contempt of court, one of the longest-running cases of civil contempt in American legal history. In August 2006, Armstrong pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit fraud, and began a five-year sentence.

    Author Steve Hayes on Write Now Radio!

    in Writing

    2pm ET / 1pm CT / 12pm MT / 11am PT


    (Outside US: Dial 00 + 1 + 714-464-4891)


    Viki Winterton interviews Steve Hayes! 


    British born Ivan Hayes first arrived in Hollywood in 1949 and moved there permanently in 1950. An actor for ten years, he worked in movies at MGM, Warner Bros., Paramount, Columbia, RKO, Universal Studios and the Samuel Goldwyn Studios as well as in early network television and radio.


    While he was under contract at 20th Century Fox, the studio insisted Ivan find a more American-sounding name. He chose Steve, after the name of his friend Steve Reeves, a former Mr. Universe who later became world-famous as "Hercules."


    When not acting or writing books and screenplays, Steve helped support himself by working in restaurants and parking cars at Hollywood's glamorous Sunset Strip nightspots like the Mocambo, Ciro's, Villa Nova, and The Players. He also did detective work for the Fred Otash Detective Agency and painted movie stars' homes and famous places like the Garden of Allah.


    Then, in 1954, he became night manager of Googie's, a popular coffee shop next to Schwab's Drugstore that was made famous by James Dean, John Saxon, Natalie Wood, Rod Steiger, James Garner, Jayne Mansfield and other celebrities like western writer Louis L'Amour and Hollywood gossip columnist Sidney Skolsky.


    During that time Steve befriended numerous movie stars like Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Clark Gable, Alan Ladd, Lana Turner, Sterling Hayden and Robert Middleton, all of whom influenced his life and gave him material for his recently published two-volume memoirs, Googie's: Coffee Shop to the Stars.


    Steve still writes novels and screenplays and presently lives at the beach in Huntington Beach, California, with his lovely wife of twenty-five years, Robbin.
