Shifting the Focus of Breast Cancer Awareness

October 20th, 2014

All throughout October 2014, DreamTeamNetwork will be posting a succession of blogs on breast cancer awareness, research and more news in support of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign. We are proud to show our continued support for this compassionate, laudable cause and hope you will too!

This year, we have been shining the light on a different kind of breast cancer awareness—a message more appropriate to today. Today’s message of awareness might adapt and shift focus in a number of different directions, including:

Emphasizing Unmet Needs
People with metastatic breast cancer are living an incredibly difficult existence with a long-term diagnosis. They go about their lives with an incurable condition, receiving treatment until death.

Pointing to Critical Areas for Research
Certain crucial areas to be researched include:

• Breast cancer’s causes – The more that is known about the causes of breast cancer, the more the cancer might be prevented;

• Metastases – The more is known about why secondary malignant growths develop at a distance from a primary site of cancer, the more these too might be prevented or better managed, if and/or when they arise;

• Better, more effective and less harmful treatments for all molecular subtypes of the disease; and

• Improvements in diagnostics or pathology so that patients with minimal or slow tumors can safely avoid overtreatment.

Stressing That Patients Have Options
Patients should be informed of all of their options and given room to ask questions of their physicians. The best medical care happens when patients are educated about their condition and care options, can enter the doctor’s office or clinic with a reasonable understanding of their condition and choices, and share in decisions about their care.

Recognizing That the World is Disease-ridden
Awareness is important but it also demands perspective, including the fact that breast cancer is one of many illnesses from which all kinds of people suffer and some die. There is no severity or merit contest for cancer. Each person in each situation deserves good medical care provided with respect and access to the necessary medication.

To take action and make a difference, consider supporting National Breast Cancer Foundation ( or one of the many other organizations fighting against this deadly cancer.

Oriens Travel & Hotel Management Corp. (OTHM) Pushes Property Sales Initiative ‘Go Button’ Ahead of Schedule

October 20th, 2014

Oriens Travel & Hotel Management, the Next Generation International Hotel Brand Operator – recently merged with E-Network de Costa Rica SA (“E-Net”) – with a pending name change to Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc., issued a press release today to announce that it has kicked off one of its two primary revenue-generating initiatives, property sales, ahead of schedule. The news was initially released on Friday via the following corporate blog:

Similar to the company’s rental initiative, it was anticipated that property sales were not to begin until November 2014. However, as a Senior Board Member noted, CEO Melvin Pereira saw no reason for the delay.

Relying on a solid business relationship with RE/MAX Jaco, Melvin Pereira, President and CEO of Oriens has started to sell some of the company’s holdings – the first of which being a commercial unit on a main street in Jaco.

Mr. Pereira commented, “Revenue is key for any company. For the evolved business model of PURE, sales and rentals is what it’s largely all about. While our plans were to begin both revenue initiatives the first week of November, if the tools exist now to get started, why wait? We will not wait! That is my response to that question.”

RE/MAX Jaco began releasing ads for PURE last week, thus putting the Company’s commercial unit up for sale. It is anticipated among company management that Oriens/PURE can realize a return on its investment between 54% and 66%.

Although sales of commercial units and perhaps land parcels may continue to make their way into the sales pipeline early, management continues to expect Mr. Pereira will not begin selling residential condominium properties until November 2014 as originally planned. A Senior Board Member said, “Mr. Pereira believes the best defense is simply a stronger offense. Therefore he will attack matters of revenue generation from every viable angle, as expeditiously as possible.”

Oriens Travel & Hotel Management Corporation engages in the operation of hotels and resorts in the United States and Central America under the brand of ‘Hotel PURE.’ Additionally, the company operates Friendly Reservations Online, a proprietary online booking system used to execute reservations capture through Hotel PURE’s consumer websites and individual hotel websites operated by Oriens on behalf of hotels under the Hotel PURE brand.

Intelligent Highway Solutions, Inc. (IHSI) Pursues Greener Pastures

October 17th, 2014

Intelligent Highway Solutions is branching out. The developing Sacramento, California-based company is taking its vast knowledge of electrical solutions and applying them to new commercial ventures—of late, agricultural lighting systems and smart parking systems.

From the time it was established in 2011, IHSI has developed high and low voltage electrical solutions for commercial use as well as for various platforms—advanced lighting systems, electrical installations, temperature control systems and communication and wireless integration. Nowadays though, IHSI is using the latest technological developments to advance plant growing and commercial parking systems.

Agricultural Applications

IHSI holds exclusive distribution rights to lighting technologies that have the potential to improve yields and reduce costs for plant growers engaged in the legal cannabis industry. Consequently, the company has been offering its proprietary lighting systems as a leading solution for this booming sector.

With the installation of the company’s 300-watt lighting system, it is expected that medical cannabis growing facilities can generate larger, healthier yields of cannabis. The 300-watt lighting system is enhanced with increased lumens and photon density to achieve energy savings and provide the plant nursery with the necessary color spectrum and light to create an optimal growing environment. The company’s 100-watt system, which runs at a lower temperature, has also resulted in substantial energy reduction.

Boreal Water Collection, Inc. (BRWC) Quenches Thirst for Success with Opportunities in High-Growth Industry

October 17th, 2014

Water is unarguably one of earth’s most precious commodities, and the containment and sale of this vital resource represents an impressive market that for 20 years has easily outperformed the broader beverage industry. The U.S. bottled water industry saw “aggressive” growth in 2012, climbing 5.8% to $12 billion compared to 1.0% growth in the overall U.S. liquid refreshment industry, according to Beverage Marketing Corporation. The bottled water market is expected to continue this momentum and increase at above-average growth rates of 6-9% in coming years.

Established in 1884, Boreal Water Collection has long-participated in this market, evolving with demand and consumer trends in its mission to become a globally recognized “Boutique Bottler.” The company offers premium private-labeled bottled water products tailored to each customer’s needs, be it publicity, promotion, marketing, internal use or a specific event.

Boreal’s pot of gold, so to speak, is a natural fresh-water spring chambered deep inside the Catskill Mountains about 90 miles north of New York City. The spring’s thick layers of prehistoric clay and other exceptional geological and geographical features create an exceptional source of low-mineral, sodium-free and well-balanced PH water. Armed with exclusive exploitation rights, Boreal has a confirmed volume of thousands of millions of gallons of fresh water in this spring.

Seventeen miles away sits Boreal’s sprawling, 75,000-square-foot manufacturing facility where the company filters collected water to remove any sediment and then produces its award-winning line of water products which include functional enhanced water, infused water, carbonated water, vitamins enhanced water, flavored still or sparkling, minerals enhanced water, oxygenated water, electrolyte water, distilled water, alkaline water, caffeinated water and natural spring water.

In addition to a variety of water options, the company offers an innovative array of bottle sizes and styles along with strategic packaging, labeling and marketing. This might not mean much for the average water-drinking consumer, but for many progressive brands, customized water is a strong marketing signature. Boreal has served high-end beverage brands, retailer channels, hotels and restaurant chains such as H&M, Mercedes, W Hotels, Dean & Deluca, Fred Water, Wat-aah, Saks Fifth Ave, Balance Water, NY Quin Hotel, Bouchon Bakery and Princeton University, among others. The company also bottles for several coffee shops and is exploring opportunities for further growth in the food industry.

Additional near-term growth plans focus on revenue enhancement via a new sparking bottle line and equipment, new products in functional and enhanced water categories, ramped up marketing efforts at trade shows and other advertising, and energy efficiency.

As of late 2014, the company’s manufacturing facility is operating at 15-20% of capacity and is close to cash flow break even. By expanding the sales efforts and distribution channels, the company forecasts that it is on track to achieve its growth potential and stand as a strong, leading competitor in the bottled water industry.

Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO) Early Detection Device Testing Delivering Promising Results

October 17th, 2014

Since the mid 1970’s, there has been a bacteria evolving from ‘nuisance status’ to a serious public health concern. This bacterium is known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Statistically, about one-third of the world’s population carries the S. aureus bacteria on their bodies, primarily in the nose and on the skin. The bacterium is often present without there being any signs of outward infection. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the people with S. aureus present, about 1 percent has MRSA.

HA-MRSA is contracted in hospital or healthcare settings and is one of many hospital-acquired infections showing an increase in antimicrobial resistance. Increasing in numbers over the last decade, the trend appears to be due to a number of factors including an increased number of immunocompromised and elderly patients, an increase in invasive procedures and failures in effective infection control habits such as washing one’s hands before contact and removal of non-essential catheters.

CA-MRSA is caused by emerging strains unlike those responsible for HA-MRSA. These strains can cause infections in healthy people with no contact or connections to healthcare environments. CA-MRSA infections are known to occur as soft tissue infections, but can develop into more invasive, life-threatening infections. CA-MRSA is trending upward in the US and worldwide, and it tends to occur in conditions where there is close contact with another person. Wrestlers, football players, people kept in close quarters such as soldiers, inmates, childcare workers, and residents of long-term care facilities are particularly vulnerable.

MRSA has attracted the attention of the medical research community, illustrating the urgent need to develop better ways to diagnose and treat bacterial infections. One such company at the forefront of early diagnosis is Zenosense.

ZENO’s mission is to develop effective medical devices targeting the early detection of both deadly bacteria and certain cancers, and then market and sell these products to hospitals and primary healthcare facilities. Two devices are currently under development – a device intended to detect the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus “Super-Bug” (MRSA) and a device intended to detect Lung Cancer. The device intended to detect lung cancer is currently being tested and is said to be showing good sensitivity. Using a common Electronic Nose technology platform, the devices analyze Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are present in the exhaled breath of patients, scanning for certain biomarkers which can identify the presence of infection.

Falcon Crest Energy, Inc. (FCEN) Making Good on Strides to Boost Shareholder Value

October 17th, 2014

Anywhere in the world, it is hard to imagine industrial operations or even private activities without oil and gas. Supplying energy, heat and power, they are also found in everyday items like plastics, medicines and the clothes we wear.

Falcon Crest Energy is making productive strides in the oil and gas industry. The company works in the oil and gas exploration and production space. Presently in its development stages, Falcon Crest is focused on developing properties and opportunities in North America.

Falcon Crest’s intention is to remain laser focused on a clearly defined path when it comes to its operations. The company plans to maximize its production capacity by focusing on acquisitions and joint-ventures and maximize its profits through the strategic acquisition and liquidation of select oil and gas properties. Beyond this, FCEN looks to expeditiously boost production levels and create forward-looking shareholder value by leveraging the latest improvements in oil and gas production technologies. With respect to the risk that accompanies all exploration, Falcon Crest strives to reduce risk by developing proven petroleum reserves.

The company has a number of notable partners—C. K. Adams, L & J Operating and Pacer Energy—consulting for the business. C. K. Adams is a professional engineer. Since the mid 1970’s Adams has specialized in petroleum engineering from Casper, Wyoming and adds experience and expertise to Falcon Crest Energy. Pacer Energy has made its name as a prominent lease acquisition and title opinion company in Gillette, Wyoming. Also operating from Gillette, L & J Operating will be handling Falcon Crest’s accounting. This includes the distribution of production revenue and handling necessary compliance requirements.

Oriens Travel & Hotel Management Corp. (OTHM) Completes Submission with FINRA – Moves Closer to Company Transformation

October 17th, 2014

Oriens Travel & Hotel Management Corp., the Next Generation International Hotel Brand Operator which recently merged with E-Network de Costa Rica SA (“E-Net”), announced that the company has completed the submission process for FINRA to enact the merger’s intent to recapitalize the company, put forth a new ticker symbol and change its name to Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc. The process now is now in what’s known as the ‘comment period’ of FINRA’s review.

Shareholders are expected to be part of a newly organized company inside the next thirty days, according to management personnel. In order for the merger to be effective, management will have to complete the last remaining action items. These include among other things: obtaining a new CUSIP number, filing with FINRA, and setting an “X-Date.” Time of completion is subject to procedural processes at FINRA. To date, management has met many of the procedural requirements.

On the date FINRA protocols are met, Oriens transitions to Pure Hospitality Solutions, leaving E-Net as a wholly owned subsidiary. Pure shares will be split thus reflecting the capitalized value E-Net brings to Oriens’ shareholders. At that time, shareholders who hold less than a certain number of shares of the company’s common stock will be rounded up to maintain their equity ownership post-split. This ‘Round-Up’ program was instituted by the company in an attempt to preserve the value of every shareholder, as management’s intention is to build value, “not take it away;” as previously stated by Melvin Pereira, President & CEO of Oriens.

OTHM engages in the operation of hotels and resorts primarily in the United States and Central America under the Hotel PURE brand. The company also operates Friendly Reservations Online, a proprietary and sophisticated online booking system designed to execute reservations captured through Hotel PURE consumer facing websites, as well as individual hotel websites operated by Oriens on behalf of hotels branded under the Hotel PURE brand.

Pan Global Corp. (PGLO) Poised for Profit as India Focuses on Hydroelectric Generation under Modi

October 16th, 2014

After rejecting the 3k MW Dibang hydro plant two months prior, which would be the biggest hydro plant in all of India, the country’s environment ministry has now subsequently approved the project under considerable pressure from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s office, shocking some diehard environmental groups. Yet Modi steamrollered Manmohan Singh out of office partially on a pledge to bring the some 400M Indians estimated by the World Bank to still be without power into the modern age, via a raft of energy infrastructure development, with a particular focus on hydro and small-hydro.

In keeping with the obvious push to ramp up electrical production throughout the country, the national government has also devolved much of the remaining decision making in this area to state governments themselves; state governments which generally show an even greater appetite to build out their infrastructure and turn the lights on in millions of (largely rural) Indian homes. Witness the Himachal Pradesh (just south of Jammu & Kashmir, slated to become India’s top power-producing state, in the remote northeast, and to the northwest of Uttarakhand and the nation of Nepal) state government’s recent decision to waive mandatory clearance for hydro-power projects and you get a strong sense of where the country wants to head and how eagerly in terms of rolling out hydro to meet the demand of India’s still-growing population they really are.

The UN report from last year on India’s population growth even indicated that while China would start to decline by 2028, India would still be growing strong and is on-track to become the planet’s most populous nation in under a decade and a half. In neighboring Nepal (adjacent to Uttarakhand from the southeast), the national government has just signed an agreement with India’s GMR Group to put in the approximately $1.15B, 900 MW Upper Karnali Hydropower plant, which will be the biggest hydroelectric plant in Nepal and from which most of the power would be exported to the ravenous Indian energy market (12% would go to Nepal free of charge and they get a 27% stake). Modi was even in Nepal last month touting hydro development and pledged not only to help accelerate such development, but also pledged some $1B in concessional development loans toward this end. A welcome initiative from India, as Nepal also has crippling energy problems.

No one in the region wants to revisit the 2012 India blackouts scenario that left 600M-plus without power for days and exposed serious systemic flaws in the energy grid. With the northeastern Indian state of Arunachal’s sizeable town of Ziro experiencing recent outages that basically shut down the 83k-citizen encompassing district this August, alongside Nepal’s notoriously bad power stoppages of up to 12 hours a day some days, it looks like the Himalayan foothills are destined to become a regional energy powerhouse.

This is a perfect storm of preconditions for the relatively small sustainable infrastructure-focused company Pan Global Corp. (PGLO), which makes them able to continue pursuing the increasingly dominant, small-hydro portion of their portfolio with zeal. The company’s continued success in this area was recently characterized by the successful grid connection in July of their 5.7MW small-hydro plant in Uttarakhand (Project Badyar). Project Badyar also exemplifies PGLO’s shrewd staggered acquisition strategy, here targeting privately-held Indian corporation Regency Yamuna (currently 9.93% of outstanding equity via PGLO’s wholly-owned Pan Asia Infratech subsidiary), who commissioned the plant.

The report update released in June by GlobalData (Hydropower in India, Market Outlook to 2025, Update 2014), continues to show a strong growth trend moving forward for India’s hydro sector. The recent news clearly telegraphing a more lax attitude towards environmentally regulating energy development by the Indian government should give investors a clear portrait of the country’s yet largely untapped hydro landscape. This is an ideal environment for players like PGLO, which maintains a decidedly environmentally conscious approach to the bottom line, giving local governments a “feel good” choice that will resonate with consumers on both sides of the debate.

WordLogic Corp. (WLGC) Patents Anchor Business Model, Fuel Growth

October 16th, 2014

Through 10 years of operations and research and development, Vancouver-based WordLogic has built an extensive intellectual property portfolio of patented, advanced predictive text technology. The company holds four issued U.S. patents, two issued European patents, and five pending U.S. patent applications. These patent protections are critical to the company’s business and demonstrate its growing position in the technology industry.

Fostering continued growth within the predictive text niche, WordLogic is exploring technology and patent licensing opportunities with potential business partners located around the world. Using its patent portfolio and software & APP SDK Kits, WordLogic is focused on collaborating with Android mobile software and tablet app development teams to provide its partners with a company and/or application-specific dictionary with custom-inputted data or vertical market information.

Simply put, WordLogic partners are able to use the company’s software to create dictionaries customized with terminology relevant to their particular industry or trade, such as journalism, medical, engineering, scientific and legal communities – this means no more auto-correct of properly spelled but unrecognized jargon. The result is accurate communication and accelerated productivity.

WordLogic’s technology works by incorporating proprietary Gesturing™ and WordChunking™ features that accelerate typing speeds while reducing the effort needed for accuracy. This interface increased text input on mobile devices by five times, rapidly speeding communication via instant messaging, text messaging, captioning, email and information searching. The company’s iKnowU® keyboard uses state-of-the-art patented technology that becomes more accurate with each use, constantly learning about the user’s style and preferences. Utilizing the WordChunking and Gesturing, iKnowU enables the user to chain together phrases and create whole sentences in a matter of seconds.

Aside from business applications, WordLogic’s text solutions are also utilized as an assistive technology by people living with cerebral palsy, dyslexia, spelling and typing disabilities or other issues that impede effective communication via computer or phone. As earlier mentioned, the company’s iKnowU software adapts to the user by learning text (words, phrases, names, etc.) frequently used by the individual, helping them more effectively communicate on electronic devices, email, instant messaging and more.

Frost & Sullivan recently recognized WordLogic as the recipient of the 2014 North American Enabling Technology Leadership Award for Predictive Keyboard Applications, citing the company’s “technically impressive” WordLogic Predictive Engine and associated products. The market research firm also highlighted WordLogic’s “key competitive advantages” in regard to word and phrase prediction capabilities, context-aware advertising model, and simple integration, among other features.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Focuses on Hybrid Applications for Mobile Gaming

October 16th, 2014

The online and mobile gambling market is growing by leaps and bounds. The global market for gambling wagers made via mobile devices—in fact, for all forms of mobile and online gambling—is expected to grow by billions over the next few years. This trend toward increased mobile gambling supports the need for a mobile platform to meet new and existing compliance regulations.

Consorteum Holdings has developed an advanced Universal Mobile Interface (UMI) that addresses the challenges facing compliance in the mobile gaming industry. Naturally, this sector is one of Consorteum’s primary areas of focus. The company recognizes that it has a competitive advantage because it has one of the first third-party-developed, regulatory-compliant mobile platforms for the delivery of gaming content, and it plans to capitalize on this first-to-market opportunity.

Content managers in security-sensitive industries, like gambling, have only a few mobile access options to consider. There are:

• Web Applications – They are accessed through a device’s mobile browser and provide a minimal user experience, restrictive content management, nonexistent security or compliance capability but do represent a low cost solution.

• Native Applications – They are resident on a mobile device, offer an exceptional user experience, minimal content management, high level of compliant security and have high reoccurring costs associated with hardware, operation system and content changes

• Hybrid Applications – A hybrid application, also called a thin client server application, is a web solution wrapped in a native application. The hybrid application offers an excellent user experience, the highest provision for content management, a high level of compliant security and comes at a lower cost – due to low reoccurring costs associated with its “develop once, deploy many” times architecture.

When a client’s interactions contain sensitive information, due to security restrictions, there are only two choices; native applications which require continual expensive reprogramming or a hybrid application where content management and device updates are not interdependent.

Through its subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine, Consorteum is able to offer hybrid applications to clients. Built on a mobile platform, ThreeFiftyNine’s UMI offers a powerful solution for an economical investment. The platform allows developers to create, update and modify content while it maintains the device integration as well as content delivery and display. The company’s hybrid mobile interface provides for geo-location, geo-fencing, security and e-commerce while utilizing the native functionality of individual mobile devices. Mobile users only need to download the application once and the UMI delivers the content regardless of OS updates, new content or web site enhancements; this is the platform’s “develop once, deploy many” solution for mobile content.

Cannabics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CNBX) Offers Innovative Palliative Treatment for Cancer Sufferers

October 16th, 2014

The medical marijuana (MMJ) space has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years as the federal government continues easing their Schedule I enforcement regarding cannabis, allowing states to set the framework on their own so long as it abides by the dictates of federal guidance. This practice has led to 23 states and D.C. adopting some form of MMJ legislation.

One of the leading vectors within the MMJ space has been the extremely positive results that have continued to crop up as a result of testing cannabis therapies against a host of conditions. Of particular note are a variety of chronic/neuropathic pain conditions that can be treated with MMJ, with palliative therapy in cancer patients being one of the most well-known uses and the benefits over typical analgesics like opiates and NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) continuing to become apparent, especially considering the well-documented appetite simulative effects that are key for conditions like inflammatory bowel disease. Such results have big pharma understandably concerned, as more and more of the pain control market is eaten up each year by MMJ, and the rising star of cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the biggest threats to the pharmaceutical status quo.

CBD is a non-psychoactive compound derived from cannabis which is potentially quite potent depending on the particular strain of cannabis used, even despite the fact that a given strain may be very low in THC (the psychoactive component), as is the case with the now-famous Charlotte’s Web strain used to treat the cripplingly severe seizures of Charlotte Figi, a seven-year-old girl with Dravet Syndrome (a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy), which caused her to experience multiple seizures per day. The Charlotte’s Web strain has almost no psychoactive effects, yet delivers powerful seizure control capabilities, detailing further the efficacy of MMJ treatment in general for neurological disorders well beyond neuropathic pain.

The anti-cancer prospects are even more tantalizing and with a large body of studies now built up showing broad-spectrum impact in oncology, consumers are getting wise to the potential of THC and CBD rich MMJ treatments. Marijuana Business Daily sees the domestic MMJ space growing to around $8.2B in the next four years, a staggering rise of 200% over the roughly $2.34B estimated by ArcView for this year. With obvious heavy-hitters like GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH) already seeing serious upside on their Multiple Sclerosis drug, Sativex®, and a much wider space rapidly emerging that features everything from sodas and edibles, to vaporizer pens and nutraceuticals, the MMJ sector continues to attract new players and investors alike.

One of these players, Cannabics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB: CNBX), is currently developing a wide range of indication specific medical cannabis therapies for various indications. The company’s flagship product, Cannabics SR, which is designed as a palliative care therapy for oncology patients, has attained GMP (good manufacturing practices) manufacturing capabilities last month, thus placing CNBX’s proprietary product among a select few market-ready offerings to date with this designation for quality. Cannabics SR is based on a sophisticated lipid based formulation that has shown in observational studies the ability provide 10-12 hours of steady state beneficial therapeutic effects for oncology patients upon a single oral administration.

The company continues to advance a broad-spectrum pipeline of offerings and looks to be one of the first to commercialize a range of clinically tested cannabis-based products designed for specific indications. The company is preparing to launch a series of clinical studies at leading medical centers in Israel where their R&D division is strategically located. Over 100 patients have already been treated in Israel with Cannabics SR according to the company’s latest report and they have achieved high levels of satisfaction from both patients and doctors.

The terms of the agreement call for Meditem to buy from Rejuvel at least $9,000 USD of product each month. Meditem has made a local television advertising buy along with print and digital advertising, billboards and vehicle wraps.

NUUU’s CEO Charles J. Scimeca, commented, “Considering that the total population of Northern Cypress is just under 300,000, the commitment from Meditem is significant. We welcome their company to our growing distribution network.”

Issuer Direct-Technology Applications International Corporation operates two wholly owned subsidiaries, Rejuvel Int’l, Inc. and NueEarth, Inc. NUUU’s Rejuvel Int’l, Inc. is rolling out its REJUVEL brand of breakthrough technologically – its 3-D stem cell extract anti-aging product made in partnership with NASA within an exclusive agreement.

REJUVEL anti-aging products are created in ‘simulated microgravity,’ in NASA bioreactors, and promote the body’s organic healing mechanisms.

The E-Beam works by using an electron beam particle accelerator unit which is proven to create high-energy electrons. These electrons produce free radicals which cause organic compounds to decompose. NUUU has plans to create a variety of applications to use the E-Beam technology for removal of pollutants from drinking water, wastewater, municipal sludge and fracking liquids.

The company has to update its shareholders and the public on company developments through additional press releases as events warrant.

Mobile Lads Corp. (MOBO) Seeks to Enhance Mobile Customer Experience

October 16th, 2014

With the growing prevalence of mobile devices worldwide, digital transactions are on the rise, and with it consumer expectations for security and performance. Large data security breaches at corporate behemoths including Kmart, Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, and Target reinforce the very real possibility of sensitive information being compromised at any time. And there is also the growing trend of security-related issues at the personal consumer level, especially with identity theft. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, 16.6 million people were subjected to identity theft at least once in 2012. In terms of dollar value, it amounted to a hefty $24.7 billion in financial losses.

Since mobile commerce is growing quickly, the need for effective technology that keeps it secure is tremendous. Mobile Lads addresses this growing need in the mobile customer space with its mobile authentication and processing product offerings. These technology solutions extend to consumers greater control in the purchase-making process, which eliminates the potential for them to fall victim to misappropriation of financial information.


The company’s flagship offering, xmVerify, enables users to safely and efficiently verify the authenticity of online purchases in real time. As they make a purchase, people receive on their mobile phones a secure notification of the pending transaction and an authorization request. They review the information, verify its authenticity, and confirm the request, all before the purchase is completed. This powerful technology solution is engineered with one of the highest cryptographic standards and is compatible with almost all mobile platforms available.

Mobile Lads’ second offering, xmBilling, allows for secure and convenient authorization of automatic billing transactions. In turn, that cuts down on challenges imposed by volume-based and automated billing. Users are able to review billing details at a secure online location, which is accessed via a text notification containing a URL that leads to an online e-bill. Then they authorize payment through credit card with their PIN.

The third offering, xmOne, consists of a slew highly-secure mobile phone services, including:

• Secure mobile top-up to a prepaid account
• Transaction authorization/processing
• Check balance
• Account notification
• Emergency alerts

Well-geared for students and universities, this technology solution delivers greater security for mobile-based transactions and related sensitive information. Together, xmVerify, xmBilling, and xmOne provide users with an improved mobile customer experience, by way of the depthful, secure, and efficient transaction monitoring and control capabilities they extend.

Consumer-Driven Shopping

In the area of online browsing and shopping, Mobile Lads raises consumer standards with its recently-acquired CouBox platform, complete with a comprehensive coupon and incentive-driven content management system. Through its wide range of customizable search, incentives and rewards, ‘intelligent’ recommendation, and mobile alert features, among others, CouBox connects users with timely coupons, existing deals, and important information offered by merchants on different sale-items-of-interest.

Built on the Google App Engine, the platform allows consumers to take control of their online browsing and/or shopping experience in a dynamic, personalized fashion. In turn, participating merchants benefit from the ability to increase consumer awareness of their sale items and offerings.


With these offerings, Mobile Lads is committed to enhancing the mobile customer experience while increasing the value and utility of all stakeholders. On top of its existing portfolio, the company continues to look for opportunities to expand its suite of wide-area wireless communications solutions.

WRIT Media Inc. (WRIT) Turns Old, Once-Popular Games into New Revenue

October 16th, 2014

Gaming makes up the lion’s share of the mobile software world, with consumers buying games more frequently than any other type of app. An analyst at Macquarie Securities recently stated that “[gaming] is more important than people realize, it’s (actually) the fastest growing and highest margin business for Apple today.” The category is expected to grow between 40 and 50 percent this year alone. However, legacy publishers in the video game industry have been a bit slow to fully embrace mobile gaming.

No doubt the mobile gaming industry is hot. Digital games are ubiquitous and there are legions of new consumers flocking to the mediums. However, few new games catch fire with the masses and most flop. Yet there are a myriad of legacy games that have proven followings and desirability not yet adapted to the new mediums or embraced by new consumers. That’s where WRIT Media Group excels. The company leverages platform and classic game brands, coupled with proprietary technologies, to create new revenue from dormant (legacy) game libraries.

WRIT Media Group is a diverse digital media company with two operating divisions. The “retro” video gaming division is made up of Retro Infinity Inc. and Amiga Games Inc., which are videogame publishers of classic games for a wide range of devices. The other division is Front Row Networks, a content creation company focused on providing production, distribution and financing of live concerts, music documentaries, and family programs for theatrical and ancillary distribution.

Retro Infinity and Amiga Games specialize in licensing classic computer and console video game libraries and adapt and republish the most popular titles for smartphones, modern game consoles, micro-consoles, PCs, and tablets to create new revenue from classic games that have proven popularity and the ability to sell.

WRIT Media already has a deal with Microsoft, in which Retro Infinity/Amiga Games will initially deliver 50 games, and potentially up to 500 classic game titles to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Both platforms will initially offer downloads for windows-based computers then will add additional titles and additional mobile platforms, such as Windows phone, iOS, and Android platforms, so that the video game titles can be downloaded as Apps on various mobile devices.

WRIT Media is rapidly turning legacy gaming into new revenue. Leveraging management’s nearly 50 years of industry experience and contacts, it looks like WRIT Media is well positioned to create a their own legacy in the explosive gaming industry.

Cleartronic, Inc. (CLRI): Enabling Public Safety Agencies to Achieve High Performance through Interoperability

October 16th, 2014

With lives often at stake, effective emergency response requires multiple government and non-government agencies working together in a coordinated, collaborative
environment. That makes achieving interoperability between their communication systems vital. The variety of personnel and communications equipment
involved makes a high-performance solution mandatory and yet, an extremely difficult goal to achieve.

When an emergency occurs, the responding agencies need to quickly establish communication to ensure a coordinated response to minimize the loss of life and
property. Because of the high stakes and multiple parties involved, public
safety agencies have sought out innovative ways to solve the problem of interoperability. In the United States, extreme weather events leading to natural disasters, threats of viral outbreaks, or dealing with a potential terrorist threat all provide object lessons for the need of rapid inter-agency communication.

Existing communications systems represent a considerable investment and have been fine tuned and customized over the years to support the daily operations of the concerned agency or business for that matter. Increasing interoperability by replacing existing systems with a new platform would be an intensely costly investment. The best approach is to leave the existing systems in place, simply providing a layer of technology integration to allow inter-system communication.

VoiceInterop, Inc., a wholly-owned Cleartronic subsidiary, is a premier provider of unified communications solutions that provides this layer of integration for customers to seamlessly link a wide variety of otherwise incompatible communications devices and networks, including two-way radios, cellular phones, PDAs, and tablet PC device. The company already has a diverse customer base of more than 200 companies, including emergency services agencies, airport management, and colleges and universities. VoiceInterop is a leader in application development, systems integration, services, and an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for interoperability-enabling solutions.

Cleartronic is continually developing new product and service applications that address consumer and enterprise-wide markets. The company’s acquisition and growth strategy is driven by identifying problems resulting from change such as unfilled market needs or gaps, and monetizing solutions of those problems by the appropriate technology. Recently, Cleartronic, Inc. announced a licensing agreement with Collabria LLC, allowing products such as VoiceInterop to be enhanced with the integration of Collabria’s ReadyOp communications platform.

ReadyOp provides government agencies, hospitals, first responders, companies and unified commands with multiple communication capabilities and options in a single, secure website. ReadyOp is designed to support daily operations, special event planning, incident management and emergency response and recovery:

With the advent of technologies from Cleartronic and its recent partnerships that enable collaboration and coordination, agencies and enterprises are no longer limited to information harbored within their silo of operability. Where once it was acceptable to function as an autonomous organization, recent disastrous events, such as the highly damaging Hurricane Sandy of 2012, have brought to light the deadly consequences associated with the operating model that any one agency can work in a vacuum.

Publication Highlights Use of Sibling Group’s (SIBE) Blended Schools Network in Shenandoah Valley School District

October 15th, 2014


IBIS Capital forecasts 15-fold growth in the eLearning market over the next decade and Sibling Group Holdings hasn’t wasted any time getting in on the opportunity. Earlier this year Sibling acquired Blended Schools Network (BSN), which provides benchmark online curriculum for K-12 schools, including professional development for teachers, complete course authoring tools, and learning management system (LMS) administration and support.

BSN offers 212 different online courses and last year served more than 160 school districts with more than 300,000 course enrollments last year. Among those school districts is the Shenandoah Valley School District located in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania. The Republican Herald recently published an article entitled, “Shenandoah Valley Virtual Academy provides learning with and without walls,” discussing the various opportunities blended learning provides for learning outside the classroom and noting BSN’s anchored presence in the district.

“The academy has its roots in the district’s participation with the Blended Schools Network, which is a consortium of more than 200 Pennsylvania schools,” cites the article. “The network has coursework designed by accredited teachers and follows the guidelines of Pennsylvania academic standards.”

As the article further details, the Shenandoah Valley School District believes that learning should be free from brick-and-mortar confines for a set period of hours and that learning opportunities should be available at all times and in a variety of ways.

Blended and virtual learning models provide this opportunity without eliminating teacher-student interaction or diluting the quality and accountability of traditional classroom learning. In fact, the model for blended and virtual learning is not unlike online or distance learning college courses, which have been offered for more than 10 years.

Modern technology has enabled the creation of entire virtual schools and academies, enabling students to work from home and still have valuable contact with teachers via email or in-person. Some students never set foot in a classroom while students in blended schools come in for certain periods of the day.

“There are full-time virtual students who don’t come here,” district Secondary Principal Phillip Andras is quoted as saying in the article. “It’s just like a charter school. However, the benefit of taking virtual classes in a brick-and-mortar school setting is that whereas some virtual schools doing everything through e-mail or some kind of account like that, we have teachers here (and) they can meet face-to-face at any given time. We provide that flexibility.”

As is the case with the Shenandoah Valley School Districts, many school districts are looking for dynamic solutions to provide high-quality learning opportunities to enhance student performance. Pioneering the evolution of today’s traditional education system, Sibling focuses on three key segments of the growing industry:

• Educational Technology (“Ed-tech”)
• Education Management
• Curriculum design and development

Sibling’s goal is to secure its position as a leader in education transformation creating high-quality lifelong learning options for the global marketplace. As part of this plan, the company recently entered into a partnership with LoudCloud, a behavioral analytics-based teaching and learning ecosystem, to enhance student access to its BSN content. The agreement extends BSN’s online, blended and competency-based learning to students via the LoudCloud learning management system.

Well Power, Inc. (WPWR) Issues Shareholder Letter from Company President

October 15th, 2014

Earlier today, a shareholder letter from Well Power’s president was issued as a press release. The complete message can be found below.

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

As you are currently aware Well Power, Inc. (the “Company”) has entered into a licensing arrangement, (8-K filed January 22, 2014) with Canadian based ME Resource Corp, (MEC – CSE) owner of the MRU technology, Gas to Liquids conversion and associated intellectual property. We would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support and patience. Management is putting out this update to shed light on the current progress the Research and Development team has been making, which we believe will have a positive effect on Well Power as we move into this high-growth area. Your Well Power management and consulting team are diligently working towards getting units tested and built for the field. Our current progress is outlined as follows.

Unit Commercialization

An area has now been chosen to build the Prototype Unit from which the Commercial Units will be modeled on for the field. Management has decided to build the Prototype Unit in a location where the Research and Development team is based to save both time and money. Negotiations are ongoing for a preferable site for the Unit to be built and tested. Process engineers have also been engaged to design the Unit and its various components.

Financing and Capitalization

On August 26, 2014, the Company entered into an Equity Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement with Premier Venture Partners, LLC (“Premier”) whereby Premier is obligated, providing the Company has met certain conditions including the filing of a Form S-1 Registration Statement for the shares to be acquired, to purchase up to Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000) of the Company’s common stock at the rates set forth in the Equity Purchase Agreement. Under the Equity Purchase Agreement, the shares are purchased at the discretion of the Company by issuing a “Put Notice” when funds are needed. The amount of money that we are able to draw from this financing may be limited, however, depending on the price per share and volume of our trading common stock on the OTCQB. As a result, we may not be able to realize a substantial portion of the $10,000,000 financing.

The foregoing description of the Equity Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Equity Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement, which are included as exhibits on Form 8-K filed August 27, 2014.

There are a number of financing options available to companies at Well Power’s stage of development. After thoughtful consideration, the S-1 was chosen as it gives management strategic control over bringing growth capital into the company while at the same time allowing careful management of dilution to all shareholders.

Corporate Disclosure and Blue Sky Filings

On May 13, 2014, Well Power’s company information has been made available via S&P Capital IQ Corporation Records Listing Program. As part of the program, a full description of Well Power, Inc. is published in the Daily News Section of Standard & Poors’s Corporation Records, a recognized securities manual for secondary trading in up to 38 States under the Blue Sky Laws.

Alliance Creative Group, Inc. (ACGX) Improves Upon the “Thank You” Gift

October 15th, 2014

Despite having an established, solid base and a core business that has been around for over a decade and a half, Alliance Creative Group is not very well-known so it is stepping up its marketing efforts. The Illinois company specializes in printing, packaging, supply chain, product development and brand management consulting and marketing and, in sharing its history and capabilities with a larger audience, hopes to gain access to new clients, vendors, shareholders, investors and mergers and acquisition opportunities.

This past September, Alliance Creative unveiled a new service that should increase its marketing reach. The company launched a website for high-end, branded corporate gifts and charity: The luxury gift box site was designed to help clients give corporate gifts and support compassionate causes while, simultaneously, raising awareness and funds for those causes.

Through the website, Alliance Creative will contribute a percentage of every order to each customer’s charity of choice, allowing each company to highlight their brand, thank their clients and support a number of laudable causes, including:

• The Anti-Cruelty Society
• Charity4Life
• Feed My Starving Children
• Wades World Foundation
• Wounded Warrior Project
• Yhim

Clients asked for a better way to show their customer appreciation and Alliance Creative delivered. The company used its unique, custom packaging abilities to create a superior gift box that can be useful for multiple purposes. Now, clients can say “thank you” or “happy holidays” with an invaluable branding tool that showcases their corporate brand while expressing gratitude to their valued clients.

The CorporateGifts4aCause platform will serve as a foundation for future product offerings. The new product and service will start with luxury gift boxes but the company is also building the infrastructure and functionality of a flexible and adaptable platform in order to expand into other similarly appropriate products and services in the future.

Armco Metals Holdings, Inc. (AMCO) Logistics Efficiency Deemed to Reduce Costs – Enhance Bottom Line

October 14th, 2014

Armco Metals Holdings has been selling and distributing metal, non-ferrous metal ore and recycled steel scrap for quite some time. The company uses a diversified sales channel throughout China while providing ore and scrap steel suppliers access to approximately 100 metal and steel production facilities. During a time where steel demand is on the rise, AMCO provides an on-ramp to selected China-based state-operated foundries, thereby delivering a continuous flow of business for scrap steel recycling and raw materials.

With subsidiaries based in the major port cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Lianyungang and the mainland city of Zhengzhou, the company leverages the infrastructure to enhance business logistics which ultimately leads to cost reduction and an enhanced bottom line. These strategic locations enable Armco to distribute recycled scrap steel and metal and non-ferrous metal ores throughout China with optimum efficiency. Armet Renewable Resource, the company’s recycling facility based in the province of Jiangsu, is known as a waste iron and scrap steel recycling processing pilot region for China. The province is within close proximity to steel mills whose combined production generates nearly 20 million metric tons per year. The Lianyungang operation aims to become the region’s recycled scrap steel leader.

Armco Metals utilizes its financial capital to make certain its suppliers receive payment in prompt fashion. The company’s credit line pushes approximately $95,500,000 USD – all of which has been extended by at least six banks in mainland and Hong Kong. As a U.S.-based Chinese company, AMCO is highly regulated and takes great pride in upholding a reputation rooted in credible, dependability and ethical business behavior. Through the leadership of its experienced executive management team, the company continues to expand its sales and distribution channels to meet China’s growing steel production demands.

Since 2001, Armco Metals Holdings has been generating revenue fueled by way of the current trend toward sustainable solutions in steel production while nurturing existing supplier base and customer relationships. Armco has opened a state-of-the-art facility in Lianyungang, China, enabling it to add recycled scrap metal to its product offering.

One World Holdings, Inc. (OWOO) Delivers High Quality, Diverse Fashion Doll Lineup as Holiday Season Rapidly Approaches

October 14th, 2014

With the domestic toy and doll market slowing in recent years amid tough competition from China and the fashion doll segment in particular growing slower than other sub categories, it has become increasingly difficult for doll makers to capture the attention of consumers. NPD Group data from last year shows toy sales were off by about 1% from the $22B pulled down in 2012, a figure that has followed the industry for almost a decade now. To a certain extent this stagnant growth is attributable to the massive upswing in video games and small electronics taking more and more of the market share, but it is also due to a considerable lack of variety among the offerings of the dominant brands from Mattel (NASDAQ: MAT) like Barbie and the Disney Princess offerings.

The biggest play of the year looks to be the Disney (NYSE: DIS) animated film Frozen products, whose cachet value looks extremely high after the success of the film as we head into this year’s holiday season. Major domestic toy retailer Toys “R” Us pegged the Snow Glow Elsa Doll as the top pick going into Christmas 2014, riding high on the $1B plus in ticket sales the film made and related consumer market full of young girls enamored of the film’s characters. TTPM (Time to Play Magazine), the veteran industry trade publisher that has tracked sector performance for decades now, recently indicated that initial sales reports look positive and that spending was up broadly with a “good buzz” going into Q4.

One of the more compelling plays in the sector today, One World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:OWOO), continues to gain ground with The Prettie Girls!™ line of multicultural fashion dolls via their One World Doll Project subsidiary. Developed by OWOO lead-designer, Stacey McBride-Irby, in conjunction with legendary collectors doll designer Robert Tonner and The Tonner Doll Company, The Prettie Girls! brand features a lineup of beautiful, ethnically diverse, and positive role models for young girls, with African-American, African, Caucasian, Hispanic, and South Asian dolls. Such a product portfolio, as diverse as America’s continually evolving cultural demographics, is more appealing to a wider audience and the company has already signed a retail partnership with Toys “R” Us, making the lineup available on

Similar retail expansion with the HEB Grocery Company’s chain of locations, tipped off by overwhelmingly positive direct feedback from mothers who are ecstatic to finally find a brand of doll for their daughters that is not only diverse, but contemporarily fashionable, has led OWOO to place a big production order in order to bring inventory levels for The Prettie Girls!™ up to 75k units in anticipation of the holidays. Ten HEB stores placed new orders in June amid growing receptivity across their retail footprint for the dolls and after OWOO founder Trent Daniel made a rousing presentation in front of some 80 store managers.

To further shore-up this growing receptivity to the strikingly diverse doll line, OWOO has entered into an $800k private equity partnership with renown NY hedge fund, Blackbridge Capital, in order to tighten up the balance sheet. The company is on-track to consolidate and eliminate several large convertible notes this quarter as a result of the partnership, totaling over $415k and putting the company within striking distance of their 2014 goal of reducing total debt by 50%. Also notable, OWOO has managed to secure a premier spot at Toy Fair 2015, where OWOO will unveil the full line Prettie Girls! dolls.

A far cry from the staid old Barbie brand, with girls from a diverse cultural heritage in decidedly modern fashions, The Prettie Girls! could be just the ticket to retake lost ground in the fashion doll segment this Christmas and OWOO is betting that the HEB and Toys “R” Us endpoints will help accelerate sales nicely.
