its an arab country in the middle east drawn up by western map makers after WWII. they used to try and mess with israel until they got their as sses kicked. now the country is run by a fat-head and the alternative is even worse. couple that with the bozo in the whitehouse, and you've got a sour toxic stew of #$%$ for brains.
"...For the past year, Nokia has been open about using its patents as a way to make more money. One way that’s happened is through licensing deals such as the agreement just announced with Microsoft; Nokia already haul in some $658 million annually in patent royalties and the company’s chief financial officer said last year he saw “good opportunities” in Nokia’s pool of unlicensed patents.
But Nokia has also been unafraid to fire off lawsuits alleging patent infringement. Nokia lays claim to an estimated 30,000 utility patents and 8,500 design patents, according to Microsoft. Last year, it filed lawsuits against device manufacturer HTC in both Germany and the United States, accusing HTC of infringing on dozens of Nokia patents.
Yet Nokia has been deterred from asserting its patents too aggressively by the risk of retaliation by competitors. Nokia’s rivals have patents of their own, and if they felt the Finnish company was making unreasonable demands, they could have filed patent infringement lawsuits themselves.
The key to the patent-trolling business model is to avoid having any products for competitors to sue over. And Nokia’s deal with Microsoft is a big step in that direction. If Nokia isn’t selling smartphones, then it won’t be vulnerable to lawsuits over smartphone patents. And that could free the firm to demand larger royalties from other firms in the smartphone industry, and to sue those that don’t pay up, without having to worry about retaliation.
To be fair, Nokia doesn’t quite fit the conventional definition of a patent troll. It will still have a handful of products left after it sells is phone business to Microsoft. One is HERE, Nokia’s mapping platform that is used in Windows Phones and some automobile systems. Another is NSN, Nokia’s telecom and network infrastructure subsidiary. But it’s the patent portfolio that’s arguably Nokia’s most valuable possession..."

WOULD YOU INJECT THIS?
"Information regarding the firm's Amniofix injectable product, which was rolled out approximately August 2011, was collected and forwarded to CBER for review. The information collected included advertising, packaging, processing procedures and studies conducted related to the product (Exhibit KDB 6-12). The firm manufactures a total of four injectable products made from amniotic membrane, which undergo the same processing as all of their other amniotic membrane graft products. Once the membrane sheet has been dehydrated, it will undergo cryo milling in order to grind the membrane down into micronized pieces. The cryo milling requires that the firm freeze the membrane for a specified period of time and spin it in a mill, using cutting balls to cut the membrane into small pieces. The understanding is that by freezing the membrane first, the heat generated during the cutting process will not denature the proteins in the membrane. The firm considers their processing technique to be minimal manipulation of the tissue and results in no viable cells after processing. The product is placed in a sterile vial and sent for sterilization after final packaging in an inner and outer pouch takes place. The product is intended to aid in the "reduction of inflammation and
enhancement of soft tissue healing, solely in soft tissue areas."

Ya know wat there hd,
I think I don't like your attitude.

I never, ever, leave political comments on financial message boards - but for you I will make an exception. What would be immoral would be closing our eyes as the Syrian government gassed their own citizens. Simple as that.
I went into a JCP store on Tuesday expecting a quiet morning (after labor day holiday) while most people are at work. To my surprise, there were many customers looking to buy. Things are getting better. August sale # will be a much better one!

It's political calculus. Conservatives have always complained liberals are soft on defense. But going it alone without Congress, without Allies is dangerous warmongering. By taking a tough stance but deferring to Congress, he sets up a win-win situation for himself.
Congress will attempt to block him unless he gives concessions on Obamacare. If he refuses, then he can say he wanted to be tough on defense but the Republicans in Congress blocked him, and he had to defer because this is a Democratic country, he's not a warmonger and we don't have Allied support.
But if the Republican Congress gives him support without concessions on Obamacare, then he gets to keep his pet legislation and also shows liberals can be tough on defense with the democratic process to back him up.
Has to be a good thing for decreasing supply to better match demand, but bad for the families that depend on those jobs! Let's hope it is beneficial for the company in the short run, and good for shareholders.

Now, if we add the Interest and debt until 2017 plus some capex at 10M per year and GA we have about 100M/Y then
From 2013 to 2017 we have 50M profit.
This is not counting any surface ore and production from another zone. It is only the Offset zone....
Conclusion is that PAL will make it, a priori, and it is a good gamble to BUY PAL under at around 1.
It will not be easy but if schedule and production is a expected the probability is high or above 70/30.
You can read again the article on seeking alpha and compare the model...Beside a fundamental error by Wallace regarding capex and pretty inconsistent metal value going forward we can get to the same conclusion.
When the shaft will be done at 825m, I think PAL will get a boost when actual production will start to show improvement and cash cost will dive to 300. I expect some news any day now...
I believe PAL has passed the 800m and may be a week from reaching Phase I level. If it is true then production will start during October to reach the 3000 TPD expected end of December etc etc...
I welcome anyone here to challenge my calculations as long as it is explained with facts.
I own now 25k shares at 1 but will add if PAL pps trade under 0.99...I intend to trade PAL and may keep some so depending on the next news?
Invest at your own risk
My guess is many of these orders are dependent on the US subsidizing the buying of some of these products for many of the poorer nations. On that front good luck, as sequestration eats into the defense budget on many different applications.
This is said tobe the heaviest shorted stock on the whoe NASDQ, look for a slingshot reaction in 5hrs...
