Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

IDO Security, Inc. continues to market its patented shoe scanning device across the globe as the cries for more efficient and less invasive security screening methods continue to escalate. The company’s technology not only provides a safe and secure shoes-on weapons metal detection solution that can be easily implemented to existing screening devices, but also provides a system that is comfortable and convenient for travelers.

“There has been an endless outcry from the public with regards to the new pat-down and full body scan procedures that have been implemented by TSA at the airports as well as pleas by the head of the TSA asking travelers for their patience and cooperation as we head into one of the busiest travel seasons,” recently stated President and CEO of IDO Security, Michael Goldberg. “We continue to reach out to officials across the world with urgency to act on this outcry and provide travelers an increased security presence while also giving them sense of privacy and comfort at a time where security threats are at their highest.”

IDO Security patented shoe scanning device offers a convenient step-on functionality that extends security screening and metal detection to include the ankles and feet, without requiring shoe removal. The company’s device has been used in such establishments as airports, seaports, border crossings, courthouses, prisons, and even at schools and sporting events in stadiums.

Today it seems terrorism is a daily occurrence, affecting someone, somewhere around the world. Although increased security measures are more necessary than ever before, the issue can be dealt with in a far less intrusive manner.

Advanced Cell Technology (ACTC.OB) Looking to Make History Again

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

It was only eight days ago that Advanced Cell Technology (“ACT”) announced that they have been granted U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval to proceed with human studies in Phase I/II clinical trials to treat Stargardt’s Disease, a form of juvenile macular degeneration, using human embryonic stem cell (hESC) derived retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE). This in itself was a history making moment as this approval was only the second approval ever granted by the FDA for clinical trials with embryonic stem cells.

The management of Advanced Cell Technology is now looking to broaden their footprint in the industry and usher in a new age of medical therapies as today it was announced that the Company has filed an Investigational New Drug (IND) Application with the FDA to initiate a Phase I/II multicenter study using hESC RPE cells to treat patients with Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration (“Dry AMD” or “central geographic atrophy”). Using these same technologies is an efficient move by the management of ACT as it should help expedite the decision-making process with the FDA as this approach in research is the same that was recently approved for the Stargardt’s clinical trials.

While Stargardt’s is a devastating disease, dry AMD is found far more frequently, effecting more than 30 million people worldwide with nearly half of those affected being Americans. Statistics show that nearly 10% of all people aged 66 to 74 will experience some form of macular degeneration, with the percentage increasing to 30% in people 75 to 85 years of age. The disease occurs when the photoreceptors in the macula begin to break down, an irreversible process at this point. Blindness often results over time as the macula slowly loses all function over time. Research has shown that the loss of photoreceptors is a direct result of earlier degeneration of the RPE layer of cells located just below the retina.

Much like the Stargardt’s clinical trials, the Phase I/II trial will be a prospective, open-label study that is designed to determine the safety and tolerability of the RPE cells following sub-retinal transplantation to patients with Dry AMD. A total of 12 patients will be enrolled in the study at multiple clinical sites. The sites which are currently under consideration are the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA; the Ophthalmology Department at Stanford University School of Medicine; and the Edward S. Harness Eye Institute at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Additional sites may be considered.

The market potential for these therapies, especially Dry AMD because of its prevalence, is enormous. Approximately 85 to 90 percent of all patients suffering from advanced AMD suffer from the Dry form, which correlates to approximately $25 to $30 billion in market space. As debilitating as the diseases are, there are no FDA-approved treatments for Dry AMD or Stargardt’s available on the market today. Perhaps even more importantly, pre-clinical research has showed extremely promising results for the ACT technologies as a bona fide therapy to treat the diseases.

Dr. Robert Lanza, Chief Scientific Officer for ACT, commented, “We can generate a virtually unlimited supply of healthy RPE cells.” Dr. Lanza continued, “In our animal studies, we observed significant improvement in visual performance over untreated animals, and did not find any adverse effects of the injection of RPE cells. In extending our studies to human patients, it is our hope that we will show that the injected RPE cells will rescue photoreceptors and slow, if not stop, the progression of macular degeneration.”

True 2 Beauty, Inc. (TRTB.PK) Targets High-Margin Growth Market

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

From an investment standpoint, there are few sectors as inviting as the fast growing sexual enhancement market. The potential markups, together with the sheer number of available customers, represents an almost unlimited revenue opportunity.

A case in point is True 2 Beauty, a California based producer of sexual potency products for both men and women. Expanding into markets around the world, the company’s Libigrow product is considered a Fast Moving Consumable Good (FMCG) 2, a low-cost product intended for purchase at regular intervals. Primarily, but not exclusively, targeting consumers in their 20s, the company’s products are distributed online through multiple websites. In addition, they’re building a distribution network via convenience stores, vitamin stores, independent grocers, adult boutique stores, liquor stores, and smoke shops, with the potential of moving into large retail chains. The plan is to build the distribution network through direct relationships, as well as master and wholesale distributors.

Important from a regulatory standpoint, Libigrow, the company’s flagship product, is promoted as being made from 100% natural ingredients, including:

• Cordyceps (mycelium) cordyceps sinensis
• Flat-Stem Milkvetch (seed) astragalus complanatus
• Chinese Dodder (seed) cuscuta chinensis
• Ligustrum (fruit) ligustrum lucidum
• Cnidium (fruit) cnidium monnieri
• Cherokee Rose (fruit) rosa laveigata
• Walnut (nut)
• Dong Quai (root) angelica sinensis
• Astragalus (root) astragalus membranaceus
• Schizandra (fruit) schisandra chinensis
• Korean Ginseng
• Vegetable Magnesium Stearate
• Water
• Vitamin B-6
• L-Arginine
• L-Lysine
• L-Glutamine

But its growth potential is based primarily on its intended benefits:

• Increased sexual desire and confidence
• More powerful erections
• Increased orgasm threshold and intensity
• Assistance with premature ejaculation

With the average American taking some form of dietary supplement every day to promote health and vitality, and the U.S. specialty retail channel for such sales on its way to an expected increase of over 40% from 2008 to 2017, the general sexual enhancement portion of the market is increasingly prominent on investment radar screens.

Solar Thin Films, Inc. (SLTZ.OB) to Execute Business Plans with New Joint Venture

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Solar Thin Films, Inc. has been a manufacturer of solar module production equipment and turn-key amorphous silicon module factories, but now has it eyes set on establishing itself as an international developer and syndicator of solar power projects.

The California-based Company has recognized the rapid growth in solar technologies that is being spearheaded by California and is looking to capitalize on the trend. Earlier this month, Solar Thin signed an agreement to acquire 100% of 2COR9, LLC, a California company which will focus on developing and installing solar power plants for industrial, commercial, and government customers. The personnel of 2COR9 have backgrounds and contacts in many areas and corporations that will bring potential clients with large-scale facilities that can benefit from solar units on large areas of unused roof space.

One of the next steps in executing its business strategy is to acquire or form joint ventures with other companies across the globe to establish, finance, manage and syndicate solar farms as power projects both domestically and internationally. Preliminary discussions are ongoing in Israel, Canada and Europe as well as within the United States. Today, Solar Thin Films announced that it has entered into a Letter of Intent with One Globe Renewables, LLC for the purpose of forming a joint venture and strategic relationships for the development and syndication of solar farms on both a proprietary and turnkey basis.

Founded in 2010, Colorado-based One Globe Renewables, LLC focuses on the development, financing and power project management of rooftop, carport and ground-mount commercial solar photovoltaic energy producing assets in all domestic and selected international markets. Together, the companies are hoping to capitalize on the growing U.S. solar electric capacity, including both photovoltaic and concentrating solar power installations, which increased by 37% in 2009, and photovoltaic installations (grid-tied), which grew by 38%.

Financing for a portion of these projects has been announced through a placement agency agreement with Network 1 Financial Securities, Inc., a Broker Dealer and member of FINRA located in Red Bank, New Jersey, for the purpose of offering for sale, in a private placement, a $3.5 million dollar convertible debenture.

Casey Corp. (CCPR.OB) is “One to Watch”

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Casey Corp., through its operating subsidiary ESM Refiners (ESM), is primarily focused on recycling precious metals, mainly gold. ESM is an aggregator which purchases jewelry and other items containing gold from retail stores and other sources and then sells the jewelry to refineries which in turn melt down the gold and produce gold bars.

Traditionally, gold aggregation is a high volume, low margin business. The largest share of the profits, commonly over 60%, remains with the retail store, pawn shop or other party which purchased the gold items from their original owners. On average, the aggregator keeps just 1% of the refined gold value.

By leveraging its management team’s extensive knowledge of the gold market and strategically investing in new initiatives, the company plans to increase its coverage of the supply chain for greater revenues and profitability. Expansion plans consist of establishing an independent refining facility and continuing the development of its online business to increase the number of gold items purchased directly from the original owners.

By being a fully integrated vertical operator, ESM will retain the full profit of the gold jewelry recycling process. The company’s management team is confident that the availability of investment will support heavy marketing and promotional activity, enabling the company to become one of the leading players in the market.

Gryphon Resources Inc. (GRYO.OB) Secures Financing for Lithium Exploration in Arizona

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Gryphon Resources, www.gryphonresourcesinc.com – the lithium-focused mineral exploration firm, reported completion of a $320k private placement today, securing stage one operating capital for their strategic exploration initiative in Arizona.

The buzz surrounding lithium is intense. As a key strategic resource for the 21st century, lithium is absolutely vital for batteries in all kinds of electronic devices, from cell phones to laptops and electric vehicles.

President and CEO of GRYO, Alan Muller, recognizes the vast potential for domestic lithium production and views the success of fund raising efforts as a clear indicator of strong demand from the market for the company’s production initiative.

Muller explained that the company has deftly “re-focused” over the last nine months, quietly working towards the execution of this private placement, which provides:

• Working capital spanning several months
• A balance sheet-strengthening debt-to-shares conversion component
• Funding for stage one of lithium exploration in Arizona

Muller cited a $28.4M award (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) to Chemetall Foote’s Clayton Valley lithium production facility in Nevada, as a firm stand by the US Government to support domestic lithium production.

Muller went on to note the striking similarities between Chemetall Foote’s facility and GYRO’s 640-acre L.G. Property in Arizona, suggesting that the company is sitting on a potentially major new source for satisfying skyrocketing US demand.

Muller sees the Arizona property as having the potential for very large brine deposits, with viable lithium concentrations and foresees a massive demand squeeze on the horizon for lithium:

• All the major automakers are announcing plans to build Li-ion (lithium-ion) vehicles; demand in this sector is expected to increase fivefold by 2012
• Over 60% of cell phones and 90% of laptops use lithium batteries
• Global lithium battery market exceeds $4B/year

Rapidly positioning itself to become a major domestic supplier of this critical strategic resource is a solid move for GRYO, whose shareholders stand to reap rich rewards as future US demand for lithium advances on strong uptake from the industrial sector.

Daulton Capital Corp. (DUCP.OB) Changing the Face of Mining

Monday, November 29th, 2010

There are few industries that face as much negative as the mining industry. Even in the most mining friendly locations, communities are quick to draw defensive lines, guarding against a range of reputation-based threats, whether real or perceived. Daulton Capital Corp., a Nevada based finance company specializing in natural resource investments, has structured itself to directly counteract this perception, laying a foundation of trust and transparency with local communities.

The company goes so far as to present this as the primary focus in its formal statement of corporate values:

“Daulton Capital Corp remains committed to align itself with others in projects where the ideals of leadership, social responsible resource development, environmental responsibility, safety and health are mutually recognized. Daulton Capital Corp conducts its exploration and project development activities with a commitment to be socially responsible to the local community addressing all concerns within those communities that the company has a presence.”

Daulton goes still further, giving a point-by-point guide for integrating project and public concerns:

• Act responsibly with integrity, trust and respect
• Provide leadership in safety, health, social responsibility and the environment
• Insist on teamwork and transparent communication through all levels
• Institute programs to educate and employ local workforces
• Continually develop our people and reward them for creativity, excellence and commitment
• Promote positive change by encouraging “best practices”
• Being socially and environmentally conscious within the communities.
• Promoting a safe-working environment for employees and the local community
• Operating within strict standards of ethics and honesty
• Contributing to the local community

To Daulton, this is viewed as not only a socially responsible way to conduct business, but as key to its long term role as a project generator. Daulton has the objective of putting together option and joint venture projects, with major and junior natural resource companies, from exploration through to production. Without local support, such agreements, the lifeblood of the company, simply have less chance of working.

Medisafe 1 Technologies Corp. (MFTH.OB) and Major Jerusalem Hospital Enter Discussions to Launch Pilot Project

Monday, November 29th, 2010

With headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Medisafe has developed a global presence by protecting the lives of medical patients and the hospital industry as a whole. The company accomplishes this by effectively preventing the unauthorized administration of drug or medicinal substance by hypodermic needles with patented locking mechanisms to ensure a patient only receives the correct dosage.

Today, Medisafe took another step towards prominence with the announcement they are in discussions to launch a pilot of its syringe locking device with a major hospital in Jerusalem. The target date for launching the pilot program will be within the next six months and will demonstrate the effectiveness of the device to physically block the administration of incorrect medications or dosages to patients.

The technology will feature a barcode reader that will confirm both the medication and its intended patient. If there is a possibility for an incorrect administration of the dosage, the locking device on the syringe will not open and administration will not be possible which will protect the lives of patients and hospitals from medical malpractice lawsuits.

Leading the way at Medisafe 1 Technologies is Jacob Elhadad who serves as the CEO. When asked what this announcement means to the future of the company, Elhadad was quoted as saying, “We are optimistic about the early discussions with a very well-respected department in one of the region’s best hospitals. The successful implementation of this pilot could potentially lead to more widespread demand for our technology.”

Black Friday Deals Trump the Recession

Monday, November 29th, 2010

During this year’s Black Friday, you could be excused for thinking we’re no longer being affected by the recession. The yearly post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy has been dampened in recent seasons due to economic downturn, but due to irresistible prices and some shrewd tactics on the part of some retail chains, this Black Friday could end up being the busiest in recent memory.

The Mall of America, for example, reported more customers this year. Some chains, such as Best Buy, Sears, Macy’s and Toys R Us had earlier opening times, or limited 24-hour access. The majority of purchases were toys and TVs, but luxury items such as jewelry and high-end footwear and clothing were on lists as well.

Deals were in full force – Wal-Mart (which had stores open 24 hours starting on Thanksgiving), stocked a 32 inch HDTV for $198, and toys such as Barbie dolls for $10, and Zhu Zhu Pets for $4. Old Navy, Toys R Us and Sears were all open on Thanksgiving, hoping to get some more shoppers this year. Toys R Us was open for 24 hours, starting at 10pm on Thanksgiving, offering shoppers the chance to stay up a little later for deals, rather than waking up before dawn to stand in line.

Gadgets were another draw: Best Buy was running holiday ads 11 days earlier this year than last, offering a large selection of DVDs on sale for $3.99 each and $30 off the Nintendo Wii console to pull customers into stores. Best Buy wasn’t keeping overnight hours, but many stores reported consumers in tents in the parking lot, to ensure the best picks when the stores opened.

A strong Black Friday is typically a bellwether for the holiday shopping season to come. Named for the opportunity to put retailers “in the black”, or into yearly profitability, it’s understandably a tense time for storeowners. But if this year is any indication, 2010’s holiday season is looking a little brighter. Research firm ShopperTrak is expected to release data from this year’s results on Saturday, and the full picture for the weekend overall will be known on December 2nd, when retailers report sales for November.

Not to be discounted, however, is the newer tradition of Cyber Monday, which is when online retailers post similar types of deals, with many stores offering free shipping . Black Friday isn’t typically as profitable for online stores as Cyber Monday, but this year some decent profits were posted. eBags, for example, reported sales at 69.5% above Black Friday 2009.

Radius Gold Inc. (RDU.V) Stakes 550 Claims

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Radius Gold Inc. announced that they recently staked 230 claims. These claims cover the eastern extension of the belt of rocks that host ATAC Resources’ Osiris discovery, contiguous with ATAC’s Sten claim block, northeast of Keno City in the Yukon Territory of northern Canada.

Radius also staked 320 claims covering the prospective stratigraphy along the northern edge of ATAC’s claim block. This is midway between the Osiris and Ariana targets.

ATAC has discovered a potentially major belt of Carlin-type gold mineralization at their RAU property. According to ATAC, mineralization in the Osiris Target area shares many of the characteristics of Carlin-type gold deposits. This includes similar alteration assemblages and association with the low temperature arsenic sulphides, realgar, and orpiment.

Host rocks are two, 150 to 250 m thick limestone debris flow and turbidite units. These are referred to as the Osiris and Isis Horizons, which occur within basinal silty mudstones. Radius Gold Inc. plans to begin exploration of their ATAC-belt claims when weather conditions allow in the spring.

Radius recently announced a non-brokered private placement to a maximum of 5.8 million flow-through common shares at 65 cents per share. This is for gross proceeds of up to $3.77-million. Closing of the financing is anticipated to occur on or before Dec. 6, 2010. It is subject to receipt of TSX Venture Exchange acceptance. The net proceeds of the financing will be used for exploration of Radius Gold Inc.’s Sixty Mile property in Yukon Territory and their other Yukon properties.

Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Radius Gold Inc. has been exploring for gold in Latin America for nearly a decade. The Company has assembled interests in a portfolio of promising gold projects throughout the region. This includes carried stakes in two small-scale developing gold projects in Guatemala and Nicaragua. In addition to their ATAC-belt claims, Radius also has two other 100 percent owned exploration plays. These are the HB property in Guatemala and the Sixty Mile property in the Yukon Territory.
