    "The Most Important Energy Source of the Future Might Surprise You

    ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM ) recently released its updated energy outlook through 2040. That outlook sees global energy demand growing by an average of 1% per year from 2010 to 2014. The fastest growth will come from renewables like solar, wind, and biofuels. However, what might surprise you is that the most important energy source to meet future demand growth, according to Exxon, is actually natural gas. As the following slide shows, natural gas is expected to see the largest absolute growth as it becomes the key fuel in meeting future energy demand.
    While the outlook still projects oil to remain the overall leader in meeting the world's energy demand, it sees natural gas moving past coal as the world's No. 2 fuel source. More importantly, natural gas is expected to provide more of the energy needed to meet future demand than nearly all other energy sources combined.

    Why natural gas?
    Natural gas is one of the most flexible fuel sources we have. Not only is it used to heat homes and businesses in the winter, but it is used as an industrial feedstock to make plastics and fertilizers as well as an option as a transportation fuel. On top of that, it is quickly becoming a vital fuel source for electricity generation.
    That's really key because, as this next slide shows, electricity generation is expected to lead the growth in energy demand over the next few decades."

    Share Price Target? (Short term - Long Term)

    Have to be very careful in the short term because a $2.60 share price could kick-in dilution of anywhere from 4 1/2 to 5 million additional shares. I am hoping for multiple events to absorb those additional shares. We shall see.

    I remember the old days when there use to be censors for what TV and Hollywood could produce. I myself use to think they were too strict. I believe "Gone with the Wind" was the first movie with cursing in it. Rhett Butler said, "The "Hell" I will", or something else which was just as completely harmless, but it was considered such a big deal. Now that everything has gone too far and completely unregulated it has definitely affected our generation, and those succeeding to the point that moralities have deteriorated far too much. Some people with mental issues emulate what they see on TV and use it as justification as normal behavior to commit crimes. I know I sound like an old futty dutty but that people use the TV, for instance, as a baby sitting tool and children from a yong age are bombarded with the filth on TV thinking it is normal to behave in those manners. Additionally, there may exist less, and less parental guidance due to our busy life styles, which also includes less church attendance. I think we may have traveled too far in the wrong direction to now effectively make changes, especially with a the liberal rights activist taking us farther, and farther away from morality. I am hoping that just as nature has a way of making changes to correct our climate that social changes may have a natural mechanizing to effect change also. It has been my contention that our country was blessed because we instill values that were right with God, in a world that wasn't. I have always believed in Devine intervention which could be presented in no stronger evidence than our Civil War which ended slavery, had slavery as the driving force, when neither side as a majority cared about
    blacks. How could the circumstances that lead to all that change possibly happened without someone, or some other entity not leading to that direction. Truly a miricule IMO. If we can stay with God we will be fine. Good will always prevail over evil . It is just the way of nature for survival.

    If that offends anyone, sorry about that, but I am a Christian and proud of it. May we all be blessed in the coming year and learn to love and respect each other no matter race, religion, or creed. A special thanks to our military, and police for all the sacrifices they make, and the hardships they continually endure. Our country is fractured, but it will eventually heal. In all of history there has never been another America, a country that seeks equal treatment of all people, We have conquered our enemies, and protected our friends and the only Real Estate we have ever sought was enough to bury our dead. it hasn't always been perfect, but perfection is an ongoing journey and we are well on our way to a more perfect Union. We hold ourselves to a higher standard than most, and our transformation hasn't always been easy, and sometimes it has been bathed in blood. But, we need to remember that laws must be obeyed and the innocent should be protected, and the quilty treated fairly, though sometimes forcefully for the benefit of the peaceful majority. Children are born perfect, hatred is experienced, or taught. Our futures are collectively in our attitudes and treatment of each other.

    Merry Christmas

    I said the same thing, only you said it first. I didn't see your post but agree wholeheartedly. But I thought Spherix paid 60 million for their patents? Perhaps, I am wrong?

    Licensing and Royalties

    I believe the Rockstar consortium achieved what they wanted. They made 183 million from Cisco,ongoing cut of royalties, 60 million from Spherix, 900 million selling 4000 patents, left themselves an additional 2000 valuable patents to litigate, sell, or collect royalties from, but most importantly they have protected themselves from being the victims of patent litigation buy controlling all the patents, even the ones they have sold. Spherix said the same thing that RPX is saying now, that it is much preferable to license and collect FAIR royalties than to litigate. Doesn't mean that they won't if they don't get what they want, or need. Nothing has really changed other than a more cooperative atmosphere that is only more favorable to Spherix and its small float. Cisco can go on selling it's routers and switches, but now it must pay Rockstar, Spherix and RPX and so will everyone else. Lol.

    And it won't take too much for a low float company like Spherix to have huge S/P appreciation. Spherix cannot dilute until the S/P reaches about $2.60 a share and they can only raise another $10 million until March of next year (1 year period) which would only dilute by about 3.8 million more shares at the most.

    Remember, Spherix was joined to the Rockstar V Cisco case. Why? And why were they never dismissed from that case even though their was a settlement which we were told did not involve Spherix? I was always suspicious of those circumstances. Cisco always wanted to bring clarity to the industry about all of these Nortel patent disputes. Why would they not involve Spherix when seeking clarity? I don't believe that it is a coincidence that all of our cases related to Cisco and it's customers have been stalled. I believe that we are part of the negotiation process. Whether or not we will want to go along with how Rockstar settled their differences I am not certain, but I think there has been many attempts to convince Spherix to come to the same type agreement as Rockstar.

    Lots of tax loss selling today. Investors don't believe anything will be happening soon and feel they will buy back in after Janurary. Only problem with that is that less than 30 days we will definitely hear from Judge Lynn about the V Tech, Uniden Markman ruling. Since neither of them have patents on the cordless phone technology they had better pay up, for their massive infringment if they want to stay in business, sooner rather than later. Spherix has the resources to wait out a Rocket Docket case. This case alone can have a major impact on the S/P. This is a tough investment to analyze, so many pros and cons, but I am here for a reason, and since I am still invested, now is not the time for me to sell. AJMO and worth only what you paid for it.

    Spherix v Verizon 5-18-15

    I believe in Verizon's case, Nortel and Verizon formed business partnerships which, in part, allowed Verizon the use of some of the patents. So, Verizon is claiming the patents should be held to those original agreements. I don't believe Cisco and Nortel had any such agreements. They could be classified as competitors rather than partners. Hence, the Apples and Oranges analogy you portray.

    The shame of it all is that the architect of Obama Care is right most of the populist are dumb and they can be conned into electing idiots like that. Just like all these idiots walking around with their arms up. If you go into a store, rob from the owner, strong arm him, get into a fight with a police officer, try to take his gun from him causing the gun to discharge, run away, turn and charge him there exist a strong likelihood that you will get shot and killed. The real problem that I see is why was this child raised in this manner. The parents don't seem to want to take any blame in this situation. I can't imagine the pain that they feel, but I have concerns as to why they project the blame in the manner that they obviously do. You can't plant a garden and don't pull out the weeds. It will consume the valuable crops. I airways talked to my son about drugs, if he started hanging around someone new I talked to them, asked friends what they were like, I got envolved and didn't want to get caught off guard. You have to be pro-active and very protective these days. It is called parenting, I am my sons friend, but first and foremost I am his parent, and I took that very seriously. I get compliments all the time about what a good person he is. My job is to make him better than me. I took the blame when he did wrong, but I never sided with him when he was in the wrong. He use to get mad because I took other people's side. I use to tell him when you are right I will take your side. Children need to be taught right from wrong. It doesn't come natural to them, usually. That was a terrible, terrible tragedy but the situation will never get better unless we learn the true lessons.

    I believe, not certain though, that the 75 million market cap requirement was an agreement between Spherix and some, or one major investor. I cannot think of any other reason why Spherix would voluntarily restrict itself from dipping in the dilution pen without being required to for some reason. With this additional pressure on Spherix to raise it's market cap is why I believe they will not be as tight lipped as they prefer to be. Whoever, invested in them realizes how difficult these litigation procedures are and is trying to protect their investment to some degree. They have expectations they want to be met without taking the easy way out. AJMO.

    In conclusion, either the AT&T settlement will be adequate enough to provide short term cash requirements (next 6 months) , or Spherix will have start pumping information instead of being secretive. Soon, something will have to give. I believe it will start sooner rather than later. Another consideration, if Spherix is standing on strong legal ground in these litigations then the Rockstar Consortium could very well lend Spherix money vs losing what they have invested, and losing out in future payments. One thing of which I am certain, if the litigants we are in negotiations with don't feel that Spherix has enough cash to remain in business past 6-12 months they will use this as a bargaining chip for an under-market settlement. Once a large settlement is reached, it will cause a domino effect and no one wants to be the first to settle unless it is a sweet deal. Is this what AT&T did? We shall see, and I believe a better picture on future prospects will reveal itself.
