Laredo Oil, in accordance with their agreements with Stranded Oil Resources, plans to acquire targeted oil fields and use their innovative Underground Gravity Drainage (UGD™) model to recover, profitably, stranded oil reserves previously thought to be incapable of economic recovery. UGD™ – Hyper Down-Spacing™ is a combination of increased well spacing and Gravity Drainage by way of underground access. It utilizes traditional, proven underground machinery to drill upwards from beneath the target oil field. It uses gravity to drain the remaining mobile oil.
The UGD™ business process significantly reduces capital and operating cost per bbl. It substantially increases well count. This UGD™ process can produce oil equal to or greater than the historical cumulative production in the field. The solution features highly predictable production and high scalability. The Hyper Down-Spacing™ enables accelerated production across the entire field. This method is applicable to mature oil fields that have very specific geological characteristics.
Laredo Oil has performed extensive research and has identified oil fields within the United States that the Company believes are qualified for UGD recovery methods.

The Aristocrat Group Corp. today gave a broad overview of its strategy to capitalize on the fast-growing super-premium vodka segment, which has increased 32 percent in the last two years to $1.2 billion. Vodka, which accounts for 32 percent of industry volume, increased 5.9 percent in 2011 and now counts for a third of all spirits consumed in America.
ASCC’s brand management division, Luxuria Brands, is constructing a marketing strategy that will position ASCC as a competitive player in the highly lucrative beverage industry, honing a specific focus on vodka branding and marketing.
As ASCC executes its plan to introduce two spirits in its new line of super-premium vodkas, the company says it is following the course set by successful domestic spirit makers, such as Tito’s Handmade Vodka, to carve a similar path to success. Tito’s, which began as a one-man operation in 1997, has evolved into a brand that sells more than 500,000 cases a year.
To get a firm handle specifically on the vodka segment, and to separate itself from competitors, ASCC is creating an aesthetically appealing brand, as well a spirit with an innovative twist that the company has yet to unveil. Additionally, ASCC plans to use celebrity branding to promote its new product and will host a series of professional, nationwide talent searches to find a “rising star” to be the face of the new brand.
“Quality distilling and innovative packaging will be at the heart of our newest vodkas,” ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz stated in the press release. “For our first spirit, we’re going to be producing a super-premium vodka handcrafted in the USA and highlighted by eye-catching bottle and label design. The second spirit is going to feature something completely new and different from anything bartenders and drinkers have seen before in the vodka market.”

Last week, Rainbow BioSciences, the biotechnology division of Rainbow Coral Corp., revealed a new website highlighting its explorations into the multi-billion-dollar drug delivery and genome-mapping market. The new website replaces the prior version and can be found at www.rainbowbiosciences.com.
The revamped site details the company’s new partnership with TheraKine Ltd., the developer of a revolutionary, sustained-release drug delivery platform that could soon make local delivery of biologic agents and small molecules safer, more effective, and more convenient than ever before. Some experts believe that the worldwide market for the 10 most popular drug delivery technologies (DDTs) alone could grow to $81.5 billion by 2015.
RBCC also told investors that it is close to partnering with a cutting-edge genome-mapping facility in Houston capable of helping doctors assess genetic variations in patients in order to create more effective, optimized drug treatment plans. The genetic testing sector is one of the fastest-growing segments of the global biotech industry, with some market experts expecting it to reach $2.2 billion by 2017.
“The partnerships that we’re targeting could help usher in a new era of healthcare: personalized medicine,” said RBCC CEO Patrick Brown. “We see big growth in store for this sector, and Rainbow BioSciences’ improved website will help us keep shareholders, potential investors and other interested parties up to date on our latest activities to bring these revolutionary technologies to a pharmacy or clinic near you.”

The company’s total revenues for the 12 months ended December 31, 2012 were up 58% from the prior year, totaling $2,734,950.

Operating expenses totaled $3,424,507 for the twelve-month period as compared to $2,166,432 in 2011, representing a 58% increase. This increase in operating expenses is primarily due to legal, consulting, and professional fees related to the Share Exchange consummated on February 12, 2012, the corresponding costs of operating and reporting as a public company, and the on-boarding of additional sales and marketing personnel.
