"That is why this stock is a speculative investment Keembo ."
No...not reporting has nothing to do with being speculative. The stock price isn't low because the stock is speculative...it is low because of non reporting. People could say that Amazon is speculative, because it has never turned a profit, has a high price and lots of sales, but fails to turn a profit. That is why Amazon is speculative. Failure to report is nothing more than failing to report. You are correct that now that NNLX has gone on record with very very little reporting, anyone buying the stock is needing to really speculate and gamble, because they are investing without much information. Stating that you are going to show your product off at various exhibits and then have zero followup of results from showing product except news of salespeople in different countries having some sort of agreement (non disclosed) or sales figures is ridiculous.
Having wonderful news about a product and yet zero news regarding its acceptance and sales figures makes having wonderful news a meaningless waste of newsprint. It is like telling someone that this subdivision has beautiful lots that have terrific views, nice golf courses within, and is in a crime free area of a county, and yet the lots have been for sale for years and there is no sales figures available and nobody has built in the subdivision. How can you ever expect PPS to increase when there is ZERO news regarding sales???? Even if a company in not profitable, but it has plenty of sales of the products (Amazon is an example), investors have somewhat of an idea what is going on. If a CEO wants to keep investors totally in the dark except for news about attending conferences or exhibits and news of sales people in other countries and patents approved in them, why would anyone expect the PPS to increase? "Show me the beef." The only people that seem to know anything are the CEO's family, and they aren't talking. Not a good sign.
Nice try..God didn't have to come from anywhere. He has and always will be,. You said you don't believe in magic, but as an atheist, you have to believe in something magical. You believe the universe was created from nothing, by nothing and then created everything, and that it was done by a magical explosion when nothing existed to explode. Nice try.
ATHEISM---"The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason creating everything, and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits that then turned into dinosaurs. Makes perfect sense."
Canadians don't flock to the US, because Canada is nowhere near as corrupt and sleazy as Mexico and other central American countries. Canada has decent jobs, decent standard of living, and other than the druggie drunken mayor in Canada, you don't see too many people who want to come to the US other than to visit. They have good education and great medical there. Mexico and much of central America are another story. They are countries controlled by drug lords and crooked police forces, and residents fear for their lives daily. Giving tax breaks to the mega rich isn't the problem down south. Patrolling the borders isn't really the problem now, because the latest influx of kids are arriving by trains and caught immediately. It was a nice try though, and I agree that tax breaks for the mega wealthy shouldn't exist.
Market Cap is what the market determines the value of the company by taking the price per share and multiplying it by the total outstanding shares. Enterprise is derived from market cap minus any debt..minority interest..etc.
You get exactly what the system has to give you. When you have a supreme court that says freedom to influence elections with money is more important than actual free elections, you get the result you are enjoying..or not enjoying. The only way to correct the problem is to have public funded elections only, but IBM, GM, Exxon, Koch Bros, Raytheon, Haliburton and nearly all of the republican party would not stand for it. Why? It is because they couldn't donate and buy influence thus guaranteeing a better seat at the table than an ordinary citizen. It is that simple. Politicians who claim that they aren't influenced by their political donors are just liars. It is all masqueraded under freedom of speech, but that is a joke.
Once corporations were considered people, that should have clued the public into who runs the show. A corporation can't physically walk into a voting booth, but they can buy the influence that guarantees their will be done.
"If you're an adherent of "salvation by works", it is critical."
I am not an adherent of "salvation by works." I will repeat what James said..."Faith without works is dead." If you don't get it, that is your problem.
"Check your scripture references. You're mangling quotes here."
Oh really? Try reading Matt 25 beginning at v 37. Remember..it is the righteous doing the questioning.
"Remember, Jesus set up NO system of social benefits."
Are you referring to an earthly governmental system? He certainly told his disciples to go preach the gospel and in that process to heal the sick and even raise the dead. If that isn't a system of social benefits, I don't know what is? Hallelujah, thank you Jesus.
I don't think you understood my post to Goldy at all. Goldy was insinuating that because much of Scandinavia had low populations, that was why their medical system was more efficient...at least that is what I gleaned from it. The progressive/capitalist system is a moot point when comparing Houston to Hawaii as a total. Now....if you want to compare rural to rural, I would venture to say that much of Tx has lousy healthcare and lack of access if you live in small rural communities and there is no question that a higher % of Hawaiian residents are covered by insurance than Texans, albeit perhaps Obamacare will change some of that. Read Emily Ramshaw's article "Health Care Sparse in Rural Texas. Read about Van Horn,TX, where the nearest pharmacy is 90 miles away. As the article said...."Giant Swaths of West Texas and the Panhandle have little to no medical care to speak of--not just ecause their residents are under insured, but because it simply doesn't exist." Enjoy your soapbox time.
Your population comparison really doesn't hold much water. Countries with lower populations also have fewer doctors, fewer hospitals, etc. That is why here in rural Hawaii, where our population is lower, our waits to see doctors are far longer than somebody living in Houston. We have way fewer specialists, so if you have an ear, eyes or throat problem, you will be fortunate to get an appointment with the EET specialist within a 2 month period here in Hilo. The total population figures you stated are just not good in making comparisons.
"That’s because Jesus’ ministry was not about social justice or govt policy. It was about the kingdom - entry to which is not contingent on how one’s score on check list of social issues, is it?"
Perhaps to a certain extent that social issue score is very important. Remember what Jesus told the rich man? He said to give ALL his wealth away to the poor. Remember when Jesus was confronted and asked "well then who can enter the kingdom" and Jesus replied, when you visited me in prison, when you took care of the widows..If you don't think those are social issues, you are sadly mistaken Semper. You are correct in that Jesus didn't spend much time on govt. policy, but Jesus clearly stated.."If you love me, keep my commandments." What were his commandments? "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, soul and mind, and thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." He further clarified such when he said, "You have heard from old to love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you and do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven;" If you don't think that is a social issue, well, I don't know what to say. That was all red print brother Semper. Remember...."faith without works is dead!".
Amazon allows you to describe your product. Nothing ventured..nothing gained. Who knows? If Bret got on the ball, described the product well, it may sell to veterinarians, doctors for private studies, who knows? Besides, Amazon lets you rate the product. Their cut will be less than Fisher, but the main thing is that the product is out there visible to the masses. The end users may find other uses for the product, but at present, nothing is divulged, customers are kept secret, and the sales dept has failed to produce much. This is just another venue that doesn't cost NNLX a dime unless product is sold. The key is in the description of the product. There are loads of diagnostic stuff for sale on Amazon. Bret can put whatever price he wants, but at least with Amazon, if somebody finds the product to be of great value to them, they can rate the product.
That little cheesy website of Nanologix looks like something an eight grader made up. Maybe Barnhizer should get an Amazon account and put his kits on Amazon also, as there are plenty of bacterial diagnostic kits and diagnostic kits available for sale on Amazon. Maybe there would be some recognition, as at least with Amazon, there is a place to leave feedback. So many companies use Amazon as an extra outlet for sales, that I really don't see why Bret doesn't take a few pictures and put his products on Amazon.
"God given RIGHTS as defined in the Declaration of Independence."
Gee...I didn't realize that God given rights were something that man had control in giving and writing about. Who cares about what some old gentlemen interested in their own self interest wrote? After all...think about it...in the statement you wrote regarding Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness as given rights, I hope you don't take it too seriously. After all, a newborn child with severe hard defects and brain damage probably wouldn't qualify as having a right to life. Don't you think? A newborn child from a crack mom with no money and severe problems certainly doesn't sound to me like a situation in which the newborn crack baby has an "inalienable right to the pursuit of happiness." Just how does that infant pursue happiness? Write letters to their congressperson? Nothing but romantic language. What about liberty? Do you have the inalienable right to drive your car without a license or insurance? Where did your liberty go on that one? It was all written so that certain individuals could take advantage over others and make it seem touch me feel me.
