Don't ever let anyone tell you that hard work doesn't pay off. When Marin Katusa first sat down with Rick Rule in 2004, it hadn't been long since left a job teaching calculus. Not to say that teachers aren't important, but the position he currently occupies is a far cry from that...

Copper rose Monday, and came within a few pennies of the $3/pound mark in New York trading.
