Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Thin Client Server, UMI & Hybrid Applications Mobile Content Delivery Platform Easily Cuts Across Sectors

October 23rd, 2014

Consorteum Holdings has put together a remarkable mix of mobile technologies, partnerships and licensing agreements, placing the company at the forefront of a variety of potential solution development markets like mobile compliance gaming, e-commerce/banking, mobile healthcare, and mobile government. At the core of it all is a thin-client architecture and proprietary UMI (Universal Mobile Interface) which hurdle two fundamental obstacles in the world of mobile computing: device-specific processing limitations and the need to maintain/update client-side versioning. Of course, the UMI also makes it easier for customers to deliver rich content to the user’s device without having to jump through all the time-sink and complexity issue hoops that crop up when you are developing for a standalone execution.

The UMI, developed by CSRH’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine Inc. (359), is a marvel of universalized content delivery, as it is able to simply take whatever content the customer has designed, identify the user’s mobile device and then render everything in the appropriate display format. This allows developers to code once and publish everywhere, rather than trying to laboriously recode the application to meet device-specific requirements, a process which otherwise must also be done every time they want to push a new version to clients.

This capability is especially useful in the mobile gaming market, which is on-track to reach from $22B to $26B globally within the next two years alone. One of the keys to attracting gamers and keeping them engaged with a given product is feature-rich content and gorgeous graphics. A difficult task to execute effectively on its own, this task is made all the more difficult if costly development uptime is taken away from core content and spent coding for various device specifications. The UMI allows developers to focus on making the game they want and making it look/feel great, instead of trying to make sure that their vision isn’t ruined by device-specific limitations or an inability to execute the crucial user interface elements effectively on a given set of devices.

The thin-client architecture, which uses a remote server and cloud computing framework to alleviate the heavy computational lifting otherwise required to be performed on the user’s device, also gives developers considerable breathing room to create powerful applications with high-resolution graphics, without slowing down the user’s device inordinately or placing a given application out of the reach of older devices. A Thin Client Server platform like the one employed by CSRH’s platform also allows for improved security, presenting developers with a pipelining solution that makes the platform ideal for mobile compliance gaming. Fully leveraging the power of a hybrid application format, which uses a web app combined with a native client wrapper, Thin Client Server applications have the power to transform the world of real money mobile gambling. The company’s platform is one of a select few cleared by the gold standard in regulatory gaming, the Nevada Gaming Board, and opens up the world of sports and horse betting as well as casino games like keno and video blackjack to a vast, growing market of mobile users.

This same platform capability allows for some compelling opportunities in the world of mobile healthcare and mobile government as well, two other areas where security and the ability to deliver feature-rich content in real-time (without a ton of updating hassle) are paramount. Take mobile healthcare for instance, a world where health record data security is of increasing concern, what with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) data breaches reaching record numbers. Office for Civil Rights (OCR) reportage at the recent OCR/NIST Conference on Safeguarding Health Information indicated that, this year alone there have been nearly 12M health data record breaches (according to Health and Human Services), including the record-breaking 4.5M Community Health Systems (CHS) breach in August.

Addresses, birth dates, names, social security and telephone numbers were all stolen in the breach at CHS, the second largest for-profit healthcare hospital system in the U.S. as of last year. Needless to say there is massive demand that is simply not being met for a more comprehensive approach to securing such data. A combination of shrewd encryption and mobile platforms, like the one offered by CSRH, could go a long ways towards addressing the problem.

The same concerns and platform benefits exist in the world of mobile government computing, where a combination of huge paperwork volumes (even larger than in healthcare in some cases), diverse logistics, a strong need for security and a persistent lack of accessibility, have created a perfect storm of opportunities. Moreover, the UMI platform’s sophisticated geo-location and geo-fencing capabilities, already proven in the world of compliance gaming, offers a ready means to create true logistical situational awareness for government entities, mapping personnel and equipment from all over the globe in real-time.

Dominovas Energy Corp. (DNRG) RUBICON™ Fuel Cell Technology Stands as Global Solution

October 23rd, 2014

Concurrent with the earth’s swelling population, energy demand around the world is on the rise. In the United States, electricity generation is the largest source of emissions, accounting for 32% of total greenhouse gas emissions since 1990, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The same report shows that in 2012, greenhouse gases emitted in the United States alone totaled 14.4 trillion pounds of carbon dioxide equivalents.

Influenced by the push for renewable energy sources to meet rising energy demands, proactive energy solutions providers are aggressively seeking innovative, clean and effective technologies that reduce our world’s dependence on fossil fuels while mitigating major greenhouse gas emissions.

Fuel cell technology is rapidly rising as a leading solution. Significantly more efficient than conventional energy, fuel cell technology converts the chemical energy of the fuel directly into electricity, bypassing an intermediate combustion step. This technology has demonstrated ability to reduce major greenhouse gas by more than 60 million tons per year.

Atlanta-based Dominovas Energy (OTCQB: DNRG) is at the forefront of this technology. At the core of the company’s Fuel Cell Division is a breakthrough technology powered by RUBICON™ Series Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology. The proprietary system is capable of reforming and converting multiple fuel stocks with more than 50% fuel-to-electricity efficiency, resulting in cost-effective, clean and significantly reduced emissions with silent operations in 100kW to multi-megawatt power arrays.

RUBICON’s byproduct is water, with considerably reduced emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) compared to current industry standards. Based on measured data, a RUBICON power system creates less than one ounce of pollution per 1,000 kW/hours of electricity produced compared to the 25 pounds of pollutants from the conventional combustion generating systems for the same 1,000 kW-hours of electricity production.

Boasting flexibility in terms of variability and number of fuels that can be incorporated into its operation, RUBICON can continuously operate, enabling Dominovas Energy to take advantage of a wide range of deployment opportunities taking into account that sources and availability vary from climate, location, country and/or even continent.

Using a strategic modular implementation approach, called Distributed Energy Power Systems (DEPS), to distributed power generation, Dominovas Energy is well-positioned to meet client demand at megawatt and megawatt levels.

Through DEPS, the company is capable of placing power generation in the immediate proximity of the end-user, eliminating the high costs of infrastructure, transmission line maintenance, transformer and transfer station vandalism and sabotage and unrecoverable transmission degradation resulting in expensive losses and reliance on outdated and inefficient grid systems.

Synergistic with its goal to tackle global energy challenges, Dominovas Energy intends to build and own fuel cell utilities worldwide, joining the ranks of some of the world’s largest and most well-known companies that are already taking advantage of the vast opportunities of fuel cell systems.

Oriens Travel & Hotel Management Corp. (OTHM) Initiates Progressive Momentum, Secures First Revenues Ahead of Schedule

October 23rd, 2014

Oriens Travel & Hotel Management has begun renting its units at the Bahia Encantada in Costa Rica, taking advantage of ‘peak season’ vacationing and generating its first revenues ahead of the November schedule. The company says it launched the vacation rental initiative three weeks early to take advantage of the tourist season.

For immediate results and optimal booking, Oriens utilized seasoned rental agents to secure the condo/hotel bookings rather than pre-maturely re-launch the company’s FROL (Friendly Reservations Online) hospitality booking engine.

This enabled the company to take advantage of the most lucrative times for tourism at Jaco Beach and, as a result, company president and Chief Executive Officer Melvin Pereira said the company anticipates a steady stream of bookings over the next five months.

“Early on, I spoke about going after the low hanging fruit. When chasing down revenues to build shareholder value, for us, seasonal rentals fall into that category. Our plan is to keep all of our units occupied during the peak season to keep the cash flowing. These revenues will help to reduce capital requirements for operations. As we all know, for any micro-cap company, this means less toxic financing. These revenues will be directed toward unit maintenance, which include upgrades to the units fixed assets and décor,” Pereira stated in the news release.

Oriens obtained the beachfront Bahia Encantada condominium complex via recent merger with E-Network de Costa Rica SA (“E-Net”), and will soon operate under the brand name Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc. [pending FINRA approval].

The company’s plan is to direct rental revenues to the continual upgrade of unit tangibles to enhance the overall PURE experience at Bahia Encantada and ultimately contribute to the value and quality of the brand, “by PURE.”

Pereira also noted expectations for continued revenue growth amid progressive momentum.

“We have accomplished our first order of business – to begin generating fourth-quarter earnings,” he stated. “Whether it is through sales or rentals, I am confident revenues will continue to grow.”

October 23rd, 2014

From its offices in Aventura, Florida, and Toronto, Canada, Mobile Lads offers three core technologies to deliver secure, wireless transaction software solutions for the growing consumer finance, web and health payment processing sectors. With a stern focus on mobile commerce, the fastest-growing segment of the $1.5 trillion global e-commerce market, Mobile Lads aims to fill a specific need and expand its industry-leading position.

Though trends in consumer and merchant transactions are shifting toward mobile commerce, acceleration of this growth is crimped due to concerns of security and privacy associated with the actual transaction. Challenge often breeds opportunity, and through its Xtreme Mobility division, Mobile Lads has developed a suite of high-security solutions to address this concern and prevent unauthorized transactions.

Mobile Lads’ core mobile platforms, xmVerify, xmBilling, and xmOne, are designed to simplify and secure wireless communications. The company’s solutions provide streamlined, continuous access to time-sensitive information and data on multiple network standards.

Using cutting-edge cryptographic services, the company’s xmVerify solution prevents credit card fraud by giving users control over the authorization process when making purchases. The platform sends a transaction authorization request directly to the user’s mobile phone to ensure authenticity before the transaction is finalized. If the user does not personally authorize the payment, the transaction is not completed.

xmBilling enables customers to review and authorize automatic billing transactions, alleviating significant challenges of automated and volume-based billing. The system works by sending the user a text message with a URL leading to an online e-bill where they can review details of the bill and authorize the payment via credit card with the use of their PIN number.

The xmOne mobile platform provides encrypted mobile services such as top-up, payment processing, emergency notification and marketing, making it an ideal for students and higher education facilities. The platform interfaces with a school’s existing campus card account system to enable students to perform a variety of banking transactions from their cell phones.

Leveraging these transaction-centered technologies, Mobile Lads has a unique, tremendous opportunity to accelerate growth in the mobile commerce market, transforming the way buyers, sellers and credit/debit card processors do business while achieving its mission to grow the company’s brand recognition worldwide.

Pan Global Corp. (PGLO) Pursues Water Management Projects

October 22nd, 2014

Pan Global Corp. (OTCQB: PGLO) sees opportunity in many places. Since inception, the company’s leaders have aspired to grow the business by acquiring and developing sustainable infrastructure and renewable energy projects in India and elsewhere.

Guided by a belief that there are numerous opportunities in the Indian market, the company has sought to introduce technologies that offer “green” options to the country. In pursuing certain controlled growing and hydro power generation projects, Pan Global has shown that one of its main areas of concern is water management.

Controlled Growing

Controlled growing, or the process of growing using hydroponic greenhouses, is a budding area of opportunity in India. Growing certain crops under controlled growing conditions could considerably increase yields while using only a fraction of the usual water resources. The process has been well-tested in North America and Europe but, so far, only a few Indian growers have taken up the challenge. This is most likely because the process requires a substantial up-front capital investment.

Pan Global has a significant interest in taking the lead on developing a professional controlled growing operation in India. Considering the limited presence of such operations in the country, management believes the investment would be worth it. At the same time, they believe the task can only be accomplished with the help of India’s federal and state governments; it is encouraging that these governments seem keen to support the development of advanced agricultural technologies.

Hydro Power Generation

A number of Indian states with hydro power potential have assessed their resources in recent years and adopted hydro power generation policies for developing both large-scale hydro dam projects and smaller-scale hydro plants. The adoption of policies for the latter type of project is particularly significant for Pan Global because this is where the company intends to concentrate its efforts.

The mini-to-small-hydro option is a form of exploiting hydropower-generating opportunities on waterways with low flow-rates without damning the channels or having to create a reservoir. Just last year, Pan Global continued to implement its business strategy through the staggered acquisition of Project Badyar, a small-hydro power plant in northern India.

Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO) Completes Protocol Design – Lung Cancer Detection Trial on Deck

October 22nd, 2014

Zenosense, a healthcare technology company involved in developing and marketing devices to detect MRSA and signs of lung cancer in exhaled breath, has announced the completion of protocol design of a significant lung cancer detection trial. Testing will done in a clinical setting and is subject to agreements with a compatible hospital in the near future.

The aim of the trial is to test the ability of a prototype Zenosense lung cancer detector, currently under development. Clinical tests will divide a total of 400 patients into four groups; smokers, non-smokers, lung cancer patients and those diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

There is extensive scientific data which indicates that lung cancer causes alterations in cellular metabolism, due to oxidative stress, resulting in the production of a number of distinctive Volatile Organic Compounds in exhaled breath. The trial looks to identify the lung cancer biomarkers and to determine the adequacy of the Device in detecting these biomarkers, compared to conventional laboratory analysis.

Breath samples will be taken from each subject using a standard breath sampler. They will be captured, stored and analyzed to a strict protocol taking into account ambient air samples. These samples will be analyzed in parallel by conventional laboratory methods including Gas Chromatography (“GC”) and Mass Spectrometry (“MS”); and by two prototype devices of the same design, to ensure device results are copied.

Zenosense is a detection device development company based in Valencia, Spain. ZENO endeavors to develop medical devices targeting the early detection of both deadly bacteria and certain cancers in the exhaled breath of patients. Further, the company looks to market and sell these products to hospitals and primary healthcare facilities. The two devices currently under development are a device intended to detect the Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus “Super-Bug” (MRSA) and a device intended to detect Lung Cancer. 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 indicate the presence of infection/illness.

Armco Metals Holdings, Inc. (AMCO) Sets Sights on Industry-Leading Position, Adds Diversification to its Product Line

October 21st, 2014

Leveraging the expertise and logistics of five strategic subsidiaries, China-based Armco Metals Holdings (NYSE MKT: AMCO) is aligned with the Chinese government’s push toward an environmentally friendly economy, achieved in part by an increase in scrap metal consumption.

Armco’s strategy to be a part of this initiative is to create low-cost, high-quality solutions to meet the demands of the steel industry and subsequently achieve its goal to become the largest scrap steel recycler in China.

In its more than 10 years of operation, Armco has established long-standing relationships with nearly a dozen international metal suppliers, more than 100 small-sized and medium-sized Chinese steel production companies, and some of the country’s large state-run foundries.

The company’s subsidiaries are located in key regions throughout the country to enable streamlined and efficient sourcing, importing, processing and distribution of quality, environmentally friendly recycled scrap steel, in addition to metal and non-ferrous metal ore.

The Armco (Lianyungang) Renewable Metals, Inc. subsidiary is located on 32 acres in the Jiangsu province and is home to the Texas Shredder Lindeman System, one of the most advanced recycling systems in the world. The Texas Shredder automatically shreds, sorts and separates recycled scrap steel to process highest-quality material and is capable of processing 1 million metric tons of scrap metal each year.

Armco is also seeking out diversification of its business model to capitalize on low-risk, high-return opportunities and has been taking steps to diversify its product line and develop new products into its existing business line.

In this regard, the company’s Armco Metals International subsidiary has entered into an agreement to purchase a trial shipment of Eucalyptus Nitens wood chips from a Chile supplier. The agreement calls for the purchase of roughly 50,000 green metric tons (GMT) in October 2014 and a one-year total importation of 550,000-600,000 (GMT) if the trial shipment is a success.

The market for these woodchips is new pulp mills in China that want to expand importation of woodchips to meet their growing needs. While China’s area of eucalyptus plantations doubled between 2006 and 2012, this expansion is not enough to meet market demands. Based on current market prices, Armco estimates the market value of 600,000 GMT woodchips at approximately $63 million and expects to realize 10% gross margin on potential sales of the product.

Well Power, Inc. (WPWR) Micro-Refinery Unit to Turn Increasingly Restricted Flared Gas into E&P Profits, Lower Consumer Energy Costs

October 21st, 2014

In 2008, according to data from the CDC’s National Vital Statistics System and National Center for Health Statistics, there were some 108k excess winter deaths in the U.S. (as in above the average for the rest of the year). Across the pond in 2012-2013, as the coldest winter weather for nearly half a century settled upon Europe, the UK’s Office for National Statistics reported as many as 31k excess winter deaths across England and Wales, with the primary populations being over 75 pensioners on a fixed income.

For families whose loved ones have perished under bitterly cold conditions, largely due to a lack of capital for increasingly costly heating expenses, it would likely come as a shock that World Bank data for 2012 alone indicated some $50B worldwide in natural gas was being wasted annually through gas flaring, the practice of burning off excess gas at the site of an oil well. In the U.S. last year we burned off over $1B in gas according to a Ceres Group study, which drew heavily on data from the North Dakota Industrial Commission (NDIC), where the fracking boom has led to massive amounts of drilling and energy recovery in the Williston Basin’s Bakken and Three Forks formations.

About one-third of all gas produced in North Dakota was flared last year, where the fracking boom has led to an amazing 391% or more jump in production over the last four years, from around 230k bbls/day in 2010, to over 1.13M bbls/day as of this August. North Dakota’s Industrial Commission has subsequently set some rather aggressive flaring targets, with the first being a reduction to 26% by Q4 this year and longer-term goals of 10% by 2020, creating serious pressure on oil and gas developers to find ways to reduce or otherwise offset flaring. Without some way to harness the otherwise burned off gas, North Dakota may even end up forcing producers to scale back output in order to meet these targets.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, DOE foot-dragging, a lack of pipeline infrastructure and the prohibitively high costs of building LNG liquefaction plants have only exacerbated the underlying dynamics. We could be consuming the gas domestically, making it easier for retired people to heat their homes in the winter, or shipping LNG off to Europe and reducing the heightened tensions between the Russian Federation and EU if we had better processing capacity. Instead we face not only the obvious wastefulness, as old people die from the cold this winter, but we also incur a massive environmental black eye as well, with roughly 28% of the 1,340 MMcf/d of gas produced in North Dakota being burnt off, straight into the atmosphere.

Some hope for addressing the environmental concerns in North Dakota comes in the form of a recent announcement by Badlands NGL and their partners, who have moved to build a $4B polyethylene manufacturing facility in the state, which will eat up large amounts of ethane and yield over 3.3B pounds annually. This initiative, combined with other facilities looking to convert natural gas components into products like fertilizer, will certainly help curb flaring, but a more comprehensive utilization approach is necessary if the NDIC targets are to be met. Big players like General Electric have moved in to fill the gap, with efforts like their JV leveraging Last Mile™ Fueling Solution architectures and GE’s own CNG In A Box™ technology, to capture some 5 MMcf per day by the end of this year.

Another, smaller company making inroads here is Well Power, Inc. (OTCQB: WPWR), which stated mid-October that they have now picked an area to build a prototype of the Micro-Refinery Unit (MRU) system licensed via Canada-based ME Resource Corp. (OTC: MEEXF). The ground-breaking MRU technology is an ingenious fusion of proven commercial technologies with a proprietary micro-reactor system that collectively represents an economical, mobile and fully scalable solution for developers to generate value-added revenue streams from otherwise wasted flare gas. The MRU offers an easily transportable and configurable means for processing natural gas into Engineered Fuels™ like diluents, drop-in diesel, and even pipeline-quality synthetic crude, as well as clean electricity.

WPWR has currently engaged process engineers to design the prototype MRU, upon which future commercial units will be based, and has chosen a location proximal to where their R&D team is located in order to maximize developmental cost efficiency. The benchmark capabilities of the MRU technology to process 75 Mcf to 250 Mcf gas flows makes it an ideal solution for most E&P operators. This technology uses a powerful two-step process to condition/convert methane and condensates into syngas (CO-Hydrogen), before applying a sophisticated Fischer-Tropsch reaction in order to create Engineered Fuels, generating clean electricity as well from associated exothermic reactions and/or deliberate combustion.

North Dakota oil and gas producers looking to meet increasingly strict EPA and state regulations will have little choice as to whether or not they will employ such technologies in the future and that spells serious upside for a currently small player like WPWR. Moreover, Well Power’s Equity Purchase/Registration Rights Agreement as of this August with Premier Venture Partners, whereby Premier is slated to purchase up to $10M in common stock, provides a major financing vector for the company to pursue commercial development of the MRU technology.

Once Well Power is solidly in the business of distributing MRUs, investors should start to see some real traction, as otherwise flared natural gas is turned into profits, simultaneously helping to offset growing energy costs for domestic consumers, and this technology will also be able to tackle stranded/shut-in natural gas sources as well. Exciting news as we head into winter and America’s natural gas stocks dip to their lowest levels in six years, down 11% from last year to around 3.1 trillion cubic feet as of late September. Add to this the fact that we have shut down coal-fired and nuclear plants since last year, to the tune of roughly 1B cubic feet of natural gas in extra demand required in order to compensate, while coal stocks slump to a 39-day supply from the 57-day supply we had on hand in 2013 (largely due to insufficient rail capacity according to, and you have a perfect storm of energy shortages brewing for this winter.

Ecrypt Technologies, Inc. (ECRY) Makes Key Appointment to Accelerate Operations in Healthcare Information Security

October 21st, 2014

Ecrypt Technologies is far more than just the developer of cutting-edge, military-grade email encryption system Ecrypt One, which allows for robust handling and auditing of email (including attachments) in a fully secure environment, while simultaneously eliminating the number one security threat to networks, human vulnerabilities that can compromise integrity, via always-on encryption. The company is a focal point for a variety of key information security industry and related partnerships, as well as being a provider of full-spectrum security consulting to enterprise, government, and military clients.

This broader operational footprint is reinforced by the company’s continued efforts to load its board with directors who have top U.S. military and homeland security connections, like former two decade Congressman from Pennsylvania, Curt Weldon, who was vice chairman of both the Armed Services and the Homeland Security Committees. Also on the board is former U.S. Navy rear admiral and under secretary at DHS for science & technology, Jay M. Cohen, now a principal in the extremely well-connected Chertoff Group, co-founded by Michael Chertoff, the former Homeland Security Secretary.

Stacking the deck with such high-powered and connected people is just one element of a much larger strategy to become a dominant force in the sprawling world of information security by ECRY, but it is an essential element and one that is well exemplified by the recent appointment of 25-year healthcare IT strategy and implementation expert, Urvashi Mehra. This move shows Ecrypt’s growing focus on one of their primary target markets, healthcare information security, where HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Title II compliance has become a cottage industry unto itself.

Title II of HIPAA is all about simplified administration when it comes to healthcare data and is a driving force behind emerging national standards for dealing with patient’s electronic healthcare data, designed from inception to help prevent fraud and abuse, while also securing private patient information. This is a ripe market for ECRY, with data points like the L.A. County public health and health services department security breach early this year in February, with over 168k patients receiving HIPAA breach notification letters as a result of a sizeable theft of unencrypted computers, being a lead example.

Social Security numbers and protected health information, as well as date of birth, billing and demographic data on patients, were confirmed to be on the stolen, unencrypted hardware by L.A. County officials, leading to costly, but necessary, credit monitoring services extended to patients with compromised data. With theft being the primary source of HIPAA privacy and security breaches, accounting for nearly half (46% or more) of some 30M plus individuals having their healthcare data compromised as of earlier this year, leading to over $18M in settlements paid out by HIPAA-covered entities and business associates, the need for robust encryption in the sector is now readily apparent.

The Mehra appointment to VP of ECRY’s Global Healthcare Solutions arm is a well-timed, high profile move to help capture additional market share in the sector. Tapping such an expert strategist, with extensive Fortune 50, healthcare, IT, security, and management consulting experience, will go a long ways towards achieving the company’s ambitious growth targets in healthcare IT security. Clearly, there is abundant need at the state and federal level for comprehensive information security solutions when it comes to HIPAA, but the impact to associated private enterprise is often the most costly when a data breach occurs.

Ecrypt’s encryption solutions are an ideal way for these public/private entities to communicate freely and openly without incurring the substantial liability associated with data security breaches, helping to offset reputation damage and other ponderous outcomes proactively. Of course, the same encryption solutions that apply to the much more difficult terrain of HIPAA compliance, also serve quite well in the broader commercial landscape. A commercial landscape where notable recent data breaches range from retailers Target (40M credit and debit cards) and Home Depot (56 million debit and credit cards across U.S. and Canada), to the biggest bank in the country, JP Morgan Chase (76M households or two-thirds of the nation potentially impacted).

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.

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.
