Both are worth 600m right now, just a matter of signing partners and bringing out updated results.
A British social worker says her boss forced her to take a two-day diversity training class and that she was told to never mention race in her reports after she documented that Pakistani men had committed hundreds of acts of sexual abuse in Rotherham, a town of around 250,000 in northern England.
Working as a researcher for the British Home Office in 2002, the female social worker told the BBC that she was intimidated after she turned in a report documenting 270 cases of sexual exploitation involving men of Pakistani or Kashmiri heritage.
“You must never refer to that again. You must never refer to Asian men,” the social worker was told by a superior, she told the BBC. “And her other response was to book me on a two-day ethnicity and diversity class.”
The woman, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, came forward a week after a disturbing report released by Prof. Alexis Jay who found that at least 1,400 girls were groomed for sex between 1997 and 2013.
In her investigation, Jay found numerous social workers who said that they were told to avoid mentioning the race and ethnicity of the predators.
The whistle-blower said that after she sent her report to the Home Office and the Rotherham Council, her office was broken into and her records were stolen.
“They’d gained access to the office and taken my data, so out of the number of filing cabinets there was one drawer emptied and it was emptied of my data,” she told the BBC.
“It had to be an employee of the council.”

The woman said that only social workers were able to get the young victims to open up about what had happened to them. Along with those interviews, the whistle-blower told the BBC that she was collecting information on the men.
“I was collecting data on who the perpetrators were, what cars they were using, their grooming methods, their offending methods, and what I was also collecting, was information on professional responses,” she said.
In her final report on the exploitation and the cover-up, Prof. Jay said that the 2002 report could have prevented later abuses. (RELATED: British Social Workers ‘Downplayed’ Ethnicity of Sexual Abusers)
“Had this [2002 draft] report been treated with the seriousness it merited at the time by both the police and the council, the children involved then and later would have been better protected and abusers brought to justice,” Jay’s report read, according to the BBC.
“I was subjected to the most intense personal hostility – there were threats made from a range of sources,” the social worker told the BBC. “I’ve never seen back-covering like it and I still feel extremely angry about that.”
In her report, Jay noted that police and local senior officials “downplayed” the racial and ethnic dimensions of the perpetrators.
“Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so,” Jay’s report found.
It also notes that too much reliance was placed on imams to serve as “conduits” to Pakistani community.

You were serious, she is in the hanger. Would be a shame to loose one of the truly funny people out there, she has made so many laugh for so long.
LOLx10!!! That rear-end shows up all over the place bashing bio-techs, he is a drunk college flunky being paid to post-the real deal. Great call CD
Freddy is correct. Under Saddam any Al Qaida types that entered or existed in Iraq were executed when found. Saddam had little interest in religion as he was secular fascist pig. Be that as it may, you can argue whether or not we should have invaded till your blue in the face, there is no answer. It has proven to be folly though that democracy can flourish in an Arab country. Pro western strongman is the only answer.
Nice article on what is obviously a huge market that needs to be addressed, no orphan drug with this one. A problem almost on par with polio, that is kept under the covers. It would be awesome if we can bring relief to millions!
Well said! Sold yesterday at 2.80 and took my 25c loss from a buy months ago. Always want to break even, but I missed it in the morning and finally jumped ship. There will be no news for another few months and this thing will probably be back at 1.60.
I own about the same $ amount of ACTC as I do this, both over $100K. At break-even in both right now after lots of cost averaging down the mountain for 3 years, but its pretty scary going thru two 100:1 R/S. I'm going to guess they will not get up-listed and tank their stock 40% the same day they ring the bell! Still they will need to release phase 1 results in the next month or else it will get clobbered. At least here we already had a pretty good idea the tech would work & the only question was management.
Yes, when they release Phase 1 results, newcomers won't be looking at a penny stock anymore, we'll look like a real company.
Still a 200mm stock that is going to 0 or 10 Billion. If they can support the stock with real frickin news in September then maybe they will be doing a 1:2 split down the road to get the stock back down from $100
