    Assuming you mean "yesterday" July 6, and assuming you're including "after hours" in your "2pm to 4pm," then you need to pay more attention in your middle school math class. According to Yahoo charts, the high at 2pm was $4:22 and the low at 4pm was $3.93.

    For the math-impaired, that's a drop of about 7.75%, not 15%. Even if you include the highest high yesterday, you only get to a 10% drop.

    I hope you handle your personal finances with better care than that. Your mom probably wants you to use your allowance wisely.

    Five minutes on their website shows this to be a joke. Look at their company bios. Look at their "case studies." Then watch the question/answer starting at around 2:30 in this video:

    I did a little digging myself, using LinkedIn, CorporationWiki, and other sites. Very interesting stuff, but still searching for something of substance. There is a "Nick Tesulo" associated with a site called Thingiverse; he has a screen name of "makerbooty", and he mentions the "Aether1".

    I have a suggestion... If any of our posters live in San Francisco, pop on over to 1 Sansome Street #509, San Francisco, CA 94104 and check the place out. I'm sure it must be a thriving office, given the impressive nature of this monumental product Nick keeps talking about. Maybe take some photos... interview the receptionist. I'd love to hear what you find out.

    In case you didn't see the text under the YouTube video, here it is...

    Published on Jun 30, 2016Bio-printing functional human tissue — as San Diego-based Organovo does — is about as hard as it sounds. Even with advanced 3-D printing technology, you can’t just extrude human cells from a printer, pile them together, and assume they’re going to work like a human organ.

    “It’s not like you can say, ‘Well, a liver tissue looks like this, so let’s put the cells in that rough position, and they’ll work,’” said Organovo CEO Keith Murphy. “It takes time to find the right mix of positions and conditions.” When you get it right, a sort of natural magic can take effect.

    “The cells will bond together if you do the right thing,” he said. In fact, there was a moment when Murphy said he came to believe Organovo’s ambitious plan to produce human tissue on demand for surgeons just might work. Early on, the company was trying to produce very small sections of human blood vessels, which might be used, for example, by surgeons performing bypass surgery. In a lab they “printed” smooth-muscle cells of a blood vessel. They were randomly assorted. But within weeks the cells rearranged themselves. Murphy recalled: “They spontaneously recognize their environment and act like a blood vessel. That was the moment where you go, ‘Wow, this stuff is really going to work.’”

    Not sure this is related, but...

    There is an Aether, Inc. incorporated earlier this year located in Los Angeles. The president's name is Nikola Todorovic, which certainly bears a mild resemblance to our beloved NickTesulo. No website, no phone, etc. The agent who incorporated it was Michael J. Ullman, address: 9200 W SUNSET BLVD STE 600.
