In a recent article on patch.com Dallas based company Stream Energy outlined their philanthropic efforts after the devastating hurricane, Harvey, that hit Houston in 2017. Harvey destroyed hundreds of homes and left people and pets homeless. There was one Dallas company that was not willing to stand by and leave these people in their greatest time of need. Stream Energy, a company that had made millions from its energy sales business, partnered with Home Supply Co. to help save those who were most affected. For Stream Energy these partnerships are nothing new, as they have worked with Habitat for Humanityand the Red Cross before.
Philanthropic work has always been a part of what the company has been, and they give back to the community through more than just money.
While the energy giant is never involved in philanthropy for any sort of recognition, it does help foster respect and trust in the local communities. Local customers will already be familiar with what the company does as they supply both energy services and mobile phone plans.
One of the areas that the company has devoted much of its philanthropic work to is homelessness. In the Dallas area alone there are thousands of homeless people that need a variety of services.
At the annual Stream for Hope event, that allows children a respite from their troubles, Stream Energy payed for the entrance and food for 1000 children to the local water park. It is just a fraction of the help that Stream Energy gives with donations year-round to supply everything from diapers to school supplies. It is not just a help to the homeless. Stream employees find the experiences incredibly rewarding.
Another area Stream Energygives generously to is the military, They donated both time and resources to military families in the Dallas area, and they are always trying to find new ways to help in their communities.

He does much legal work for real estate brokers, developers, lending institutions, buyers and sellers, investors, property managers, owners, contractors, and subcontractors. He also does much legal work for individuals and groups in the entertainment and sports industries. He has made a name for himself in the legal world as an attorney with a profound talent of finding minute of buried details in a case that will help his cause.
Todd Levine says that the way litigation for the business world was done changed somewhat after the worldwide financial crash of 2008. In the years after the crash, there was much litigation over distressed assets. A very positive way that the legal world has changed over the years is due to advancing technology. Levine is excited about how this ever continuing advancement will change the legal world in the future. One of the best current legal uses for technology as far as Levine is concerned is building databases that hold a huge amount of information of many current cases.
However, Todd Levine is extremely skeptical about ideas out there that A.I. will someday be able to replace the attorney. Levine says a breathing human being girded with nuances of judgment and empathy is needed to convince a judge and jury rather than a computer who basis everything just on logic. All of his legal work is done as a founding partner of Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen, and Levine law firm. While the law is his biggest professional passion, he is equally as passionate about to of his main hobbies: Music and art.
Todd Levine says of his current hobbies, music playing is his oldest. He says he first started playing the guitar when he was ten. He still not only loves playing the guitar, but has introduced a love for playing music to his sons who play the guitar, bass, piano, and even compose their own work.

Finance Guru Matt Badiali has been recently warning investors that Oil prices are likely to rise in the near future. Badiali believes energy is about to change in a big way, although the demand for Oil will still rise while this change slowly begins taking place. Graduating with his Masters of Science in Geology from Florida Atlantic University, Mr. Badiali knows a great deal about the natural energy industry. After attending the University of North Carolina for his PhD until 2004 he entered the world of finance. Investors who’ve followed Matt Badiali’s advice over the years have seen double, even triple-digit returns on their investments after following his advice.
Oil Prices Are At Record Highs
Matt Badiali has told investors that the price of crude oil has never been higher. As of October 3rd, 2018, the closing price for crude oil was 86.20 dollars per barrel. Experts back in June did not predict this rise in oil prices as most of the oil-rich nations had stated that they will no longer cut oil production. This had the inadvertent effect of causing a drop in oil prices, going as low $45 dollars a barrel in 2017. Since that time, Oil has nearly doubled in price.
Prices May Be Set To Rise
Matt Badiali informed investors that Oil production maxed out in the United States due to bottleneck issues in both transportation and the pipelines. The main problem responsible for these issues is the way in which oil is transported within the United States. Our railroad system is outdated and unfortunately, this impacts our oil prices as most of the United States Oil is transported throughout the country by rail. The supply for the rest of the year appears to be tight at the present moment, this may fuel a spike in the price per barrel as we approach the holidays.
