  • Peak S&P. Peak big tech. Peak U.S. dollar.
  • Is inflation coming? Are you ready?
  • The markets are too complacent about geopolitical risks and U.S. political uncertainty.
  • If the S&P has peaked and the U.S. dollar heads down, the rest of the world will outperform the S&P.
  • The growing anti U.S. big tech backlash.
  • Why oil prices are headed higher and energy stocks are a buy.
  • Natural gas has experienced one of the worst bear markets in history and is one of the classic contrarian bets.
  • Is gold production peaking?
  • China-U.S. relations—the flashpoint is on advanced weaponry and the leap frogging of China technologically.
  • How the U.S. Congress and America would change if many women win in the 2018 elections.

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is the world's most powerful observatory for studying the universe at the long-wavelength millimeter and submillimeter range of light. It's designed to spot some of the most distant, ancient galaxies ever seen, and to probe the areas around young stars for planets in the process of forming.

ALMA observes light that is invisible to the naked eye, a light that emanates naturally from the Universe in long waves, a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that lets us explore the “cold Universe”.

Water vapor in the atmosphere absorbs these waves, hindering their collection on Earth. This is why the ALMA antennas are located in one of the most arid areas in the world: the Atacama Desert. At an altitude of 16,570 feet (5,050 meters) above sea level, ALMA's location in the Chajnantor plateau puts it above much of the Earth's atmosphere enabling scientists to filter the real data from the distorted readings allowing them to address some of the deepest questions of our cosmic origins and truly get the bigger picture.
