Effective July 27, 2012, pursuant to a Contract for sale with Sun River Energy, Inc., Maxwell Resources acquired certain gold, silver, iron ore, copper and coal interests in Colfax County. As additional consideration for the purchase of the mineral assets, the Company was also granted a three-year option to acquire a five percent working interest (WI) in any oil and/or gas (including coalbed methane) wells drilled on any properties owned by Sun River in New Mexico.
The Raton Basin in northern New Mexico has potential as a premier source of coking coal, gold, silver and other rare minerals. Maxwell Resources' intention is to prove up on the coal, gold/silver and other rare minerals within the basin, pinpointing the sites that will result in the largest return on investment. The Raton Basin is located in what once was the largest land grant in New Mexico history – namely, the Maxwell Land Grant. The Raton Basin is between Dawson and Elizabethtown, New Mexico, approximately three hours north of Albuquerque and one hour north of Taos.
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has studied the region; the basin contains potentially $3.4 billion in metallurgical (coking) coal, according to 1991 USGS estimates. A 2005 study indicates there could be even more high-grade coal than the USGS previously estimated. (Pillmore 1991, USGS Bulletin, No. 1972) (Hoffman Report, 2005).
On February 15, 2013, Maxwell Resources reported that Golder Associates presented a draft of their preliminary study of Maxwell's mineral rights holdings in the Raton Basin; they identified two areas that indicate the viability for proving up gold.

When it comes to music, nobody takes things more seriously than professional musicians, the people whose livelihood depends upon getting it right. They’re passion for the music experience is what drives them, and, of course, it’s also what drives their fans. So when you have a creative new product designed to add a new dimension to that experience, and it has already been picked up by 100 of the world’s top bands and performers, names like the Rolling Stones and Shania Twain and Usher, you know you’ve hit a chord.
Such is the case with the ButtKicker Concert, Guitammer’s patented 2-ohm audio transducer that turns low-frequency sounds into tactile chair vibrations, raising the music experience bar for both performers and listeners. The technology behind ButtKicker Concert has spread rapidly, and is now being used by companies like IMAX, Disney, and AMC to enhance the entertainment experience of customers all over the world. For musicians, it means that the low-end response for their stage, studio, or rehearsal room monitoring can now be powerful and incredibly tight, with every beat actually felt as well as heard. It’s musically accurate, with powerful frequency response of approximately 5Hz to 200Hz, yet is essentially indestructible, requiring no maintenance. Drummers, bass players, keyboardists, and even DJs, say that the system allows them to perform better than ever before.
Realizing they were on to something hot, the company has also hit the home listener market. The Wireless ButtKicker Kit lets the listener feel the music just like they were at a live performance, without having to increase the volume to problematic or even dangerous levels. It’s experiencing recorded music as never before, making even a basic speaker system seem like state-of-the-art audio.

The number and degree of medical advances over the past 50 years is astonishing, offering hope for the afflicted never before possible or even imaginable. But it’s hope that comes with a very steep price. Regardless of who pays the bill, or how efficiently everything is administered, the cost of applying the latest technologies is going to be high, whether in the form of drugs, diagnostic instrumentation, or complex surgeries. As existing technologies mature, costs can decrease, but the use of mature technologies is inevitably replaced by a demand for even newer drugs, instrumentation, and procedures. When a loved one’s life is at stake, everyone wants the best.
In the case of heart disease, the world’s #1 killer, the costs can be staggering. Angioplasty and stent procedures to improve blood flow to the heart can cost tens of thousands of dollars, and coronary bypass surgery can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Multiply such costs by the number of patients who receive coronary revascularizations each year (over a million in the U.S. alone), together with the costs associated with all of the complications that can result, and the impact on healthcare costs becomes clear.
Such numbers drive home the importance of Generx, the lead clinical development product candidate of Cardium Therapeutics. Unlike traditional heart treatment drugs that only treat the pain of heart blood flow problems, requiring expensive procedures like the above to deal with actual blood flow, Generx is able to stimulate the growth of blood vessels in the heart. As a cost-effective and easy-to-apply alternative to invasive procedures, the target market for the drug is deep and worldwide. In countries where the access to technology and associated funding is limited, Generx could represent a desperately needed option. The drug has already completed four randomized clinical studies in the U.S. and Europe.

The recent conference call by International Stem Cell Corp., covering sales and other financial data for the 4th quarter and full year for 2012, provided important insights into the prior year’s scientific accomplishments.
In particular, the company made significant progress with their Parkinson’s program, progress which will now be accelerated with the addition of Dr. Evan Snyder, a renowned neurobiologist and head of the FDA’s Cellular, Tissue, and Gene Therapies Advisory Committee, as a non-compensated member of the company’s Board of Advisors. Dr. Snyder’s help in navigating the complex FDA approval process should help greatly in moving the program into clinical trials over the next 1-2 years. As safety data in humans is accumulated, many other areas should open up for the company, with opportunities in the areas of stroke or traumatic brain injury, a move which could transform the company.
ISCO also successfully completed the first phase in their stem cell banking program, setting up clinics and associated processes, recruiting a pool of donors, as well as generating new clinical grade parthenogenetic stem cell lines for use in future clinical trials. In addition, the company made important advances in their liver program, showing how their cells can be used in the treatment of congenital liver diseases. Patent protection was also received that protects the way liver and pancreas cell precursors are made.
Another important development was a new procedure for producing iPS cells (induced pluripotent stem cells), which should be significantly safer than current approaches that rely on viruses. The growing popularity of iPS cells in regenerative medicine has highlighted the need to overcome two major issues with the cells: (1) The safety of iPS cells is open to question due to the use of viruses, and this is of primary concern to the FDA, and (2) Most intellectual property involving iPS cells is controlled by a handful of organizations, making it difficult and expensive to commercialize a therapeutic product based on this technology. ISCO’s newly developed iPS technology solves both of these problems, since it does not rely on viruses, nor on the intellectual property of others.

The story of Intellinetics, subsidiary of GlobalWise Investments, is one of technological convergence, and reflects the growth of information processing and communication over the past 20 years. On one hand, there is the development of ECM (Enterprise Content Management), the digital capture and storage of an organization’s documents for effective access, exemplified by Intellinetics and its lead product Intellivue. On the other hand, you have the burgeoning world of data communications, with the Internet and increasingly capable mobile devices.
Intellinetics began developing data storage solutions in the mid 1990s, about the time people began to realize that computerization was increasing rather than reducing the number of documents being used. The flood of paperwork was becoming unmanageable, and available software was simply not adequate for effective document storage and access. Focusing on flexibility and ease of integration, Intellinetics developed the Intellivue ECM solution, eventually making it a leading choice in mission-critical operating environments for both industry-specific and business function-specific solutions. At first a client server based solution, the company began migrating to a cloud based platform, allowing Intellinetics to bring ECM, once available only to larger organizations, to the mass market, minimizing up-front costs, and maximizing ease of use.
While Intellinetics was busy laying the technological and business model foundation for mass-market ECM, data communication was being transformed through use of the Internet and mobile device technology. Organizations were learning how to communicate data, both internally and externally, to wherever it was needed. Eventually processing power itself became something that could be controlled remotely, especially beneficial with the growth of mobile devices.
Today, these two forces have been brought together. Using their advanced cloud-based ECM offering, together with a partner-based business model, Intellivue provides organizations of all sizes with a powerful ECM solution that is easily integrated into existing enterprise systems. The system is easy to use, minimizing work to capture documents, and making documents available for security-controlled computer or mobile device access from anyplace in the world on a 24/7 basis.
