Founded in 1992, FastFunds Financial Corp. is a holding company that currently operates in the financial services industry division with a single credit card services portfolio. The Company, in tandem with their subsidiary, NET LIFE, has developed a unique new mortgage product that is not based on credit history (no doc) or personal guarantees.

FastFunds Financial lists on the OTC Markets' OTCQB; the Company is based in West Palm Beach, Florida.
NET LIFE'S two financial instruments are NET LIFE LCMO (Life Collateralized Mortgage Obligation) and NET LIFE LCDO (Life Collateralized Debt Obligation). The underlying collateral and a life insurance policy on the borrower only secure the new mortgage product. As a result, all that is necessary to qualify for a mortgage loan is qualifying for a life insurance policy, a down payment that typically amounts to 10 percent of the purchase price, and verification that the borrower has the financial ability to pay the monthly payments.
A NET LIFE LCMO is a residential, business or corporate real estate mortgage. All NET LIFE LCMO mortgages are processed, managed and serviced precisely like a conventional mortgage without all of the red-tape qualification.
Recently, FastFunds Financial and their wholly owned subsidiary NET LIFE Processing, Inc. announced that they reached an agreement with NET LIFE Financial Holdings regarding the compensation for processing the NET LIFE mortgages.

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Bayfield Ventures Corp. is exploring for gold and silver in the Rainy River district of northwestern Ontario. The Company owns 100 percent of the mineral rights on their flagship "Burns" block property situated in the Richardson Township, Rainy River District. Bayfield Ventures is fully funded to finish their planned 100,000-meter diamond drill program with drilling concentrated on this Burns Block Project. The Company lists on the OTC Pink Current Information and on the TSX Venture Exchange (BYV.V).
The "Burns" block property is surrounded by Rainy River Resources' (TSX: RR) property. It adjoins the immediate east of Rainy River Resources' main ODM17 gold-silver deposit and to the west of their expanding Intrepid gold-silver zone. The property is subject to a 2 percent Net Smelter Return (NSR).
Last week, Bayfield Ventures announced additional assays from the continuing exploration of their 100 percent owned Burns Block gold-silver project. The Company reported the assay and geologic highlights from two drill holes completed during the winter/spring 2013 phase of their drill exploration program on the Burns Block property.
Concerning the Intrepid Zone down-dip extension, Drill Hole RR13-34W2 intersected a down hole interval of 16.00 meters grading 10.47 g/t gold and 34.68 g/t silver. This interval starts at 635 meters down hole. The high-grade mineralization in hole RR13-34W2 is the western most intersection of the Intrepid shoot to date; it clearly shows that additional down plunge and strike extension of this zone is likely. Bayfield Ventures has been actively extending a strong shoot of high-grade gold-silver mineralization extending from Rainy River Resources' Intrepid gold-silver zone onto the eastern portion of the Burns Block to the southwest, since drilling discovery hole RR11-205 in late 2011.

ASCC Forecasts Big Growth This Summer
It’s almost impossible to talk about the economy and living standards without eventually getting caught up in a sometimes polarizing discussion about the high cost of healthcare. Spending for healthcare, as a percentage of GDP, has grown almost everywhere in the world, including the United States. Public resentment remains understandably high in this country as the pharmaceutical industry becomes bigger and more influential, generating a sense that the largest players are starting to depend more on marketing and lobbying than on visionary research.
If Americans are reeling under the onslaught of high drug prices, it’s a feeling shared around the world, especially in countries still struggling to build their per capita GDP to higher industrialized levels. The largest pharmaceutical companies are based in the U.S. and Europe, and countries outside that sphere have even less influence and control over prices and procedures. But basic medicines are critical to the health of every country, which has driven the Russian government to ramp up a major campaign for pharmaceutical independence.
Representative of this ongoing move is Rafarma Pharmaceuticals, a newly-built and fast-growing company in Russia that is being actively encouraged by the Russian government as a developing source for critical pharmaceuticals, independent of Big Pharma. The company has already built the most technologically advanced pharmaceutical plant in Russia, and aims to manufacture a range of generic and alternative pharmaceutical products available for sale at “mass market” prices, reduced in some cases by 30%-40% under typical import prices.
With a target market of over 100 million people, and with strong government support to grease the wheels, the company’s prospects are impressive. They are already being considered for the role of principal supplier to the Russian Public Health system and the Russian Army.

In the challenging world of drug development and production, one of the first factors to be considered is whether a drug will be a small molecule or big molecule drug. Big molecule drugs are often called simply biologics, although other terms are sometimes used for certain types of big molecule drugs. They are therapeutic drugs produced using biological processes, engineered from a living organism, and can be made up of complex proteins, nucleic acids, or even living cells. They’re useful in treating certain types of problems, but also have significant limitations, such as the fact that they can almost never be taken orally. In addition, they can be difficult to manufacture, which in turn can make them very expensive.
Small molecule drugs, on the other hand, can be chemically synthesized and are far easier to produce in volume. Small molecule drugs are the most common type of drug produced, and represent the heart of today’s pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, it can still be extremely expensive to research, develop, test, and market a brand new small-molecule drug. And, because small molecule drugs are such big business, anything that can help improve this process has enormous potential.
VistaGen Therapeutics is a California-based biotech company focused primarily on the use of its proprietary stem cell technology to discover, rescue, and develop novel drug candidates for a wide range of diseases. This process generates new chemical variants of once-promising small molecule drug candidates that pharmaceutical companies have put on hold during preclinical or early clinical trials due to heart or liver toxicity, which is to say that the drugs were effective but had some toxic side effects. Using pluripotent stem cells as the base for their Human Clinical Trials in a Test Tube bioassay platform, VistaGen is able to more efficiently and cost effectively test for toxicity, allowing such drugs to be economically modified and rescued from the shelf.

Immunomedics currently has three ADCs in clinical development, but recent results are especially encouraging from the two being studied in patients with advanced solid tumors – particularly metastatic colorectal and triple-negative breast cancers. Tumor shrinkage, including partial responses determined by RECIST criteria, was achieved in dose-escalation trials of IMMU-130 and IMMU-132 ADC product candidates.
Both ADC product candidates involve SN-38, which is the active metabolite of irinotecan – used in treating metastatic colorectal and other cancers – conjugated by Immunomedics’ proprietary technology to labetuzumab (anti-CEACAM5 humanized monoclonal antibody; IMMU-130) or the anti-TROP-2 humanized antibody, hRS7 (IMMU-132). IMMU-130 is being studied in advanced colorectal cancer patients who have failed irinotecan therapy, while IMMU-132 is being tested in 13 types of cancer, including colorectal, triple-negative breast, bladder, pancreas, prostate, kidney, and ovarian.
“Since we have seen tumor shrinkage, including partial responses, so early in these trials, and that SN-38 bound to two different antibodies has been active, our confidence is increased regarding the future potential of these ADC candidates for treating these major cancer types after they become refractive to conventional chemotherapeutic agents,” Sullivan said. “The major toxicities, to date, have been diarrhea and neutropenia, which generally can be alleviated by other medications, and these appear to be less frequent and milder than with irinotecan therapy.”
Sullivan added that the Phase Ib trial of 90Y-clivatuzumab tetraxetan in patients with advanced, third-line pancreatic cancer is nearing completion of follow-up, and analysis of survival results is continuing. The trial compared clivatuzumab alone with the combination of clivatuzumab with low-dose gemcitabine in an open-label, randomized trial.

Capstone Turbine, the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, received an order from California Gas Company (SoCalGas), the nation’s largest natural gas utility, for three patented C65 Hybrid Uninterruptible Power Source (Hybrid UPS) to be installed at the company’s data center.
The world’s first UPS system that integrates low-emission microturbines directly with a dual-conversion UPS, Capstone’s Hybrid UPS provides low-emission and highly reliable power for mission-critical loads.
Regatta Solutions, Inc., Capstone’s Southern California distributor, secured the order that features several Hybrid UPS microturbines deployed for critical load application. The Hybrid UPS provides an alternative to traditional UPS solutions and can easily integrate with an absorption chiller to create a combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) system which provides IT-grade power (eight 9′s reliability), facility heat, and chilled water for space cooling.
SoCalGas’s data center, located in Monterey Park, California, will be outfitted with Capstone Hybrid UPS microturbine units and an advanced double-effect Thermax exhaust-fired absorption chiller. The turbines will generate clean-and-green power onsite that will support critical loads. The microturbines will utilize clean waste-heat energy to drive the absorption chiller to meet the data center’s cooling needs in the summer and support heating needs in the winter.
SoCalGas operates in more than 500 Southern California communities, providing safe and reliable energy to 20.9 million consumers. The company’s services a territory that encompasses approximately 20,000 square miles.
“When used in a UPS application, the Capstone Hybrid UPS units emit ultra-low greenhouse-gas emissions and do not produce hazardous materials common with traditional battery-based UPS systems, which makes them the optimal clean-and-green power system for SoCalGas,” commented Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Since its market introduction in 2008, Capstone’s Hybrid UPS has proven to be a key component of green, energy-efficient data centers,” stated Jim Crouse, Capstone’s Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “In addition to its reliability and economic benefits, Capstone’s Hybrid UPS can be used in a CCHP application, making it extremely efficient.”
