Went to the opening last night and had a GREAT experience. Place was very busy (good news, as their not even officially open), and the staff did an excellent job. Lots of people, but their system manages the flow fantastically. They are within 2 miles of the main UCF campus, lots of college kids, and even though it was cool for an Orlando night, kids out on the patio (which looked really well done and very inviting.
Nope, it's not letting me copy and past my post.
Well, if your interested, we had a GREAT time, and details are on the PZZI board

Went to the opening last night and had a GREAT experience. Place was very busy (good news, as their not even officially open), and the staff did an excellent job. Lots of people, but their system manages the flow fantastically. They are within 2 miles of the main UCF campus, lots of college kids, and even though it was cool for an Orlando night, kids out on the patio (which looked really well done and very inviting. They have a great end location in a small strip mall type building, their sign is very prominent on the road frontage, and right above/ blow (can't remember which) the sign for !! FEDX !! So, we have a Fedx drop location in the same spot. Should be GREAT for added visibility. Pizza was GREAT also. I had the Classic Pan with spicy marinara (good HEAT), sausage, pepperoni, caramelized onion, black olives, & Jalapeños. Wife had thin crust (whole wheat) with pepperoni, onions, & pineapple. We both really enjoyed our pizzas, as well as two different brownie deserts.
Value seems very good to me. Pizza $6.99 by itself, or for $9.99, you get pizza, drink, & choice of salad or desert. Will will be going back to try several different pizzas. The experience building your pizza is a lot of fun. Everyone seemed to be having a great time building their pizza, and really enjoying their creations once done. Have to believe this will play well in lots of other locations. They have a solid concept. Now we just need the smarts/magic/???/whatever it is, to let this move across the country, and we will have a great ride in the stock.
Sorry, hope the above makes some sense, trying to do this quickly, market getting ready to open, and need to get to that :-)

What about APOG as a potential partner for REFR? Just listened to their Needham Growth Conference call, and sounds like they are doing very well. Encouraging info on their business and the economy in general. Seems like they could be helpful with access to the office/condo building segment of the market.
Looking forward to the day we see that PR. That will be a day the shorts DON'T want to remember. :-)

SSH, deserves access to this and I can't imagine we will not eventually see a press release indicating that they have been selected for the program. It's going to happen.
April 22, 2014, FDA proposes new expedited access program for medical devices that address unmet medical needs
oday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed a new program to provide earlier access to high-risk medical devices that are intended to treat or diagnose patients with serious conditions whose medical needs are unmet by current technology.
The proposed Expedited Access Premarket Approval Application for Unmet Medical Needs for Life Threatening or Irreversibly Debilitating Diseases or Conditions (“Expedited Access PMA” or “EAP”) program features earlier and more interactive engagement with FDA staff—including the involvement of senior management and a collaboratively developed plan for collecting the scientific and clinical data to support approval—features that, taken together, should provide these patients with earlier access to safe and effective medical devices.
Thanks, appreciate the info. I'm long REFR, but also own GLW and thats how I cam across the info/article. Guess I'll have to keep and eye on View and see how they progress, but sounds like REFR has a better product and better business model. Wouldn't mind seeing them partner with someone significant, to help balance out the GLW View partnership.
Does anybody know how View/Corning's product compares/competes with REFR?
You can Google the title of the article with info on their product (and Corning partnership) that tints "electronically in response to the outside world". Article title is, "Forget Gorilla Glass: 2 Corning Products That Could Change the World"
Google article title if interested, "Cowen and Company Initiates Coverage on American Superconductor"
If the executed and held, thats actually a risky thing to do, unless your very sure the stock is going up. Most executives with significant options are counseled to execute a same day sale. The tax consequences of executing a low dollar option and then having a stock creator on you can be very nasty. If your stock goes down, not only do you loose the profits you could have had, but uncle sam is standing there asking for the tax money you owe him for executing that low dollar option. Double bad whammy. If they executed and held, they not too smart, or they really believe in the potential.
Google, "Form SC 13G AxoGen, Inc. Filed by: Flynn James E" and you will find.
You can ask, if they can't, maybe they'll make you a special den566k pizza on the 19th and advertise it world wide. You'd be Pie 5 famous. :-)
