this might be the oldest heath food product on the market that still cannot make a dime. Just amazed it still exists . But who knows after 25 years it still might have a future
Sounds just like the history of Rice Bran a 25 year old product you cannot sell and a judgement you cannot collect.
General Mills (GIS) has stopped using genetically modified ingredients in Cheerios, saying that it would label the packaging of the breakfast cereal accordingly. It's a rare move from General Mills, as food companies have been wary of genetically modified labeling because they fear it would cause consumers to think that GM products are dangerous. Questions now include whether General Mills' peers will follow suit and what the long-term effect on GM companies such as Monsanto (MON) could be.
use the extra time to sanitize the ship even more thoroughly,” firm officials said in a statement.
CDC and cruise officials have not confirmed that the outbreak characterized by vomiting and diarrhea is norovirus; test results are expected mid-week. But the symptoms are consistent with the highly contagious bug spread by touch, by infected people or contaminated food or water.
Cruise officials said they will sanitize the ship again and that guests scheduled for the next trip on Explorer of the Seas could be confident that all measures had been taken to prevent future illness. Just wondering will SDC be used for this job ?? If not why not ???
Agree with these posts and am taking this as a confirmation of the real potential of GTHP. Investors should be buying some now and more as we get real results. Speculation yes but plenty of reason to think we have a future.
— China Mobile, the world's largest mobile company, will begin selling iPhones in China this Friday. The company said that as of January 13, it had received 1.2 million pre-orders, CNBC reports. That's 60,000 per day since December 25. "It's a huge announcement...we're incredibly impressed with them, we have deep respect for them," Apple CEO Tim Cook told CNBC. "We see this as bringing the world's best smartphone to the largest and now fastest network in China."
Huge gas shipment from China seized

CHENNAI: Directorate of revenue intelligence officers on Thursday seized 1,200 cylinders of illegally imported ozone-depleting chemical chlorodifluoromethane (R22), found in a container that arrived from China, at Chennai port.
The directorate arrested two brothers, who run an import company with an office Nungambakkam, in connection with the case, a DRI officer told TOI on Friday.
The shipment arrived in Chennai port last week. DRI officers said the importers, now in prison after a court remanded them in judicial custody, had also smuggled 1.5kg of gold. Officers at the Chennai airport seized the gold from a courier who arrived in the city by a flight on Thursday, the same day that the container was impounded.
Chlorodifluoromethane, also known as hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC-22), is a colorless gas commonly used as a propellant and refrigerant. The import if chlorodifluoromethane is strictly regulated in India, and an importer requires to have a licence to bring it into the country.
Officials of DRI said the importers had stacked the cylinders, worth Rs 27 lakh in the international market, in a container that they had declared to be carrying calcium powder. "The importers had hidden the R22 cylinders behind crates of the declared cargo, calcium powder, in the front row of the container," the officer said.
Investigators said it was a common ploy for smugglers to conceal contraband by placing it behind or beneath legal cargo that has been declared. "Most smugglers do this to fool customs officers. Because of the large volume of the imports, customs and DRI can only conduct random checks of containers but those that are checked are checked thoroughly," the officer said.
The officers said each of the 1,200 cylinders weighed 13kg. A leading importer who is a licensed importer of chlorodifluoromethane said the gas costs between Rs 400 and Rs 600 per kilo and is mainly used for refrigerators and airconditioners.
Chlorodifluoromethane is one of several ozone-depleting chemicals covered under the Montreal Protocol.
"Chlorodifluoromethane import is restricted by our foreign trade policy. The importers did not have a license to import it so he tried to smuggle the gas into the country. Investigations will reveal if he successfully smuggled the gas into the country earlier," the DRI officer said.
Go to the investor section of the Triquint website and listen to the presentation. The company sounded very bullish and I would buy right now.
GaAs firms sales to rebound in end-1Q14
Mavis Hong, Taipei; Jessie Shen, DIGITIMES [Monday 13 January 2014]
GaAs IC foundries Win Semiconductors and Advanced Wireless Semiconductor Company (AWSC), and GaAs epi-wafer supplier Visual Photonics Epitaxy Company (VPEC) are expected to see their sales rebound substantially at the end of first-quarter 2014, on a seasonal pickup in demand, according to market watchers.
The three GaAs firms had a particularly weak second half of 2013, mainly due to disappointing sales of high-end smartphones, the watchers noted. However, orders are expected to climb back up in March thanks to rollouts of new devices and growth in China's smartphone market, the watchers said.
In addition, several China-based handset component suppliers have started replenishing inventory in preparation for the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday season, buoying December sales at their GaAs IC suppliers, the watchers indicated.
Win Semi has reported consolidated revenues for December 2013 increased by a slight 1.7% on month, while sales at AWSC and VPEC registered more than 5% sequential growth. On an annual basis, the three firms all suffered double-digit decreases, however.
Win Semi announced consolidated sales of NT$10.48 billion (US$349.5 million) for 2013, down 6.7%, while AWSC's sales declined by a larger 33.8% to NT$1.07 billion in the year. Meanwhile, consolidated sales at VPEC slipped 4.4% to NT$2.15 billion in 2013.

I agree what are these analysts thinking/ company has a huge investment in Tahoe and as I see it the stock is priced for perfection. Much to risky at this price.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Please explain what they mean about blending reclaimed . I thought once it is cleaned up ,it is new R22 . What I understand is that there is no difference between cleaned reclaimed and virgin. Is that incorrect. The explanation in the Q&A makes me think you can take virgin blend it and increase the supply.
Agent Orange Corn': Biotech Companies Are Waging a Chemical Arms Race on Our Food Supply
There may be controversy over whether GMO foods are safe for human consumption. But there is virtually no controversy over the fact that herbicides, like all pesticides, are dangerous. The enormous increase in herbicide use that has occurred as a direct result of the planting of genetically engineered crops has not only poisoned the air, the water, the soil, and farm workers. It has also been directly responsible for the development of the super-weeds that now plague 50% of our agricultural acreage. The biotech industry’s answer to these super weeds — their new corn and soy seeds that have been genetically engineered to be resistant to 2,4-D — would only make our food production systems even more tightly tethered to the pesticide treadmill that has produced the problem in the first place.
Monsanto and Dow Chemical company refer to their new 2,4-D-resistant seeds as an “innovation that works for tomorrow.” They call it “the future of farming.” But these genetically engineered seeds would actually take American agriculture back more than a half-century. 2,4-D was introduced in the 1940s, and became notorious during the Vietnam war for its use as part of the chemical weapon known as “Agent Orange.” This is why the 2,4-D-resistant crops developed by Dow AgroSciences are frequently referred to as “Agent Orange crops.”
