James West was born in 1931 in Prince Edward County, Virginia, and studied physics at Temple University. Specializing in microphones, West went on to author 200 patents and more than 60 technical and scientific publications. In 1962, with Gerhard Sessler, West developed the foil electret microphone, which became the industry standard. Approximately 90% of microphones in use today are based on this invention and almost all telephones utilize it, as well as tape recorders, camcorders, baby monitors and hearing aids.
Born in Nigeria in 1954, Philip Emeagwali's determination to succeed grew out of a life of poverty and little formal education. An expert in mathematics, physics, and astronomy, Emeagwali won the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers' Gordon Bell Prize in 1989 for an experiment that used 65,000 processors to perform the world's fastest computation of 3.1 billion calculations per second. Emeagwali's computers are currently being used to forecast the weather and predict future global warming.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, N. Y., M.I.T graduate Aprille Ericsson was the first female (and the first African-American female) to receive a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Howard University and the first African-American female to receive a Ph.D. in engineering at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Ericsson has won many awards, including the 1997 "Women in Science and Engineering" award for the best female engineer in the federal government, and she is currently the instrument manager for a proposed mission to bring dust from the Martian lower atmosphere back to Earth.

Jan 15th 2016 says differently, look at open interest in call options, my bet is those are naked calls, the one dollar open interest calls are over 111,000 contracts that's 11 million shares, here are the .50, 1.00 and 1.50 just for that month,,, 0.50 RSH160115C00000500 0.40 Down 0.08 0.41 0.47 87 24,125

total in open interest is over 210,000 contracts, that's over 20 million shares that are more then likely naked calls
Buchanan your ignorance to history proves your stupidity, it was even in the early 60~s blacks use the back door, step aside when a white person is walking on the sidewalk, schools for whites and blacks, it was YOUR generation that cause hate, you never even believed in what the Founding Forefathers wanted for this country, heres some history for a hateful man like you,,,,, Southern Founders generally steered clear of organized antislavery activities, primarily to maintain their legitimacy among slaveholding constituents. Furthermore, while a few Northern and Southern Founders manumitted a small number of slaves, no Southern plantation-owning Founder, except George Washington, freed a sizeable body of enslaved labourers. Because his own slaves shared familial attachments with the dower slaves of his wife, Martha Custis Washington, he sought to convince her heirs to forego their inheritance rights in favour of a collective manumission so as to ensure that entire families, not just individual family members, might be freed. Washington failed to win the consent of the Custis heirs, but he nevertheless made sure, through his last will and testament, that his own slaves would enjoy the benefit of freedom. guess president Washington was the liberal
with everyone in the Chicagoland area having there furnace on, it gets cold out at night, one thing to remember when using accuweather that temps do not include wind chill factors making it colder.
I think Tonypr has it wrong, Doral never hired them, the PR government is working with the Hedge Funds, the Hedge Funds are going to help the PR government in the bond issues and they already pointed out that PR was entitled to over a billion dollars in Federal grants that they never filed for. The PR financial office doesn't have qualified people working for them and the Hedge Funds will help them. The Hedge Funds already pointed out why is the interest rates higher in PR then in a war zone Ukraine? My bet is Wall Street was trying to caused PR to become another Greece and take advantage of it big time. Hedge Funds came move to PR and get less interests on bonds if they don't have to pay taxes and still make more, bond interest rates will drop, this is just my opinion, good luck
Hello Brenda, here is one article with related articles, also my bid is higher then 1.13, after seeing the short amount, i dont think i could get it that low. Also when after hour market is closed bid and ask are meaning less, premarket on Monday determines price for market open price. One more thing the lenders are the ones that are heavily invested in RSH and i see this as a gamble but could pay off nicely, good luck,,,,,,,,,Reuters) - RadioShack Corp (RSH.N) is evaluating a $585 million financing package led by UBS AG (UBSN.VX) and hedge fund Standard General LP as the U.S. electronics retailer tries to avert bankruptcy, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.
[$$] RadioShack Considering $585 Million Financing Package The Wall Street Journal
RadioShack shareholder negotiating rescue package: Bloomberg Reuters
RadioShack restructuring begins to takes shape Reuters
UBS will coordinate $325 million of commitments and Standard General will arrange $260 million in financing, replacing a $585 million loan and credit facility from GE Capital, a unit of General Electric Co (GE.N), the financial daily reported.
The Fort Worth, Texas-based company said on Thursday that it may file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States if its cash situation worsened.
The new loans, a last-ditch effort that could still fall through, would loosen some restrictions in the terms of GE Capital's loan, giving RadioShack quicker access to cash through the holiday season, WSJ reported.
RadioShack, UBS and Standard General, which has a stake in the electronics retailer, could not be immediately reached for comment.
New stock pick for Monday morning, this company will get a loan for 585 million to eliminate the GE loan with better terms. The stock closed under a dollar but with the new loan news out it will open higher Monday morning, setting my bid 25 percent higher then todays closing price, stock is RSH, even though I will pay more I am looking for a quick 30 to 50 percent profit, good luck everyone
I read about it yesterday and put a bid in and when I got home I see my bid didn't get hit, I don't like buying a stock at opening price with uncertainty like VNET, only one I bought this morning was UGAZ a triple long for natural gas, in at 13.37
Morgan Stanley is backing VNET that's the only reason I tought it would be worth the gamble. if Morgan Stanley believed Trinity report I would never have suggested it but I didn't get in.
Here`s a gamble stock to watch and buy tomorrow. Lawyers are hitting it hard after the Trinity Research report came out calling the company a fraud. One thing is Morgan Stanley and some others disagree with Trinity Research report, news on Bloomberg, also Morgan Stanley still holds a buy rating and a target of 35 dollars a share, it is currently at 15.63 a share, it tanked hard, may be worth buying a small amount of shares, margin calls have to be paid tomorrow, setting a bid at 13.90, stock is VNET, good luck
Hello Hero I see oil had a nice day and hope Monday will be another nice day for oil. Yesterday I sold a third of my natural gas position, high cost in first out, it tanked nicely today and I plan on building a larger position over the next few weeks in natural gas but will continue to keep an eye on how oil does, good luck
Hello rock, I just got home and saw it went up nicely, hopefully Monday will be bullish for gold, and the Junior miners will continue upward, good luck
Hello Maria, FCEL financial report shows 113 million in cash that's almost 20% of market cap, also 350 million in backlog work. I would consider that a buy even at 2.30, If it hits 2.30 to 2.35 I might buy a few thousand shares and dump it at 2.50, that pays for my dinners for a few weeks of going out since I don't cook LOL
The stocks i bought today is CLF its iron ore and coal, then JNUG it the junior gold miners, then UCO a double long for oil, just about all hit rock bottom based on technical, good luck
