They deliver turnkey solutions to spine surgeons, orthopedic surgeons and other healthcare providers. These solutions provide the necessary and appropriate treatment of musculo-skeletal spine injuries resulting from automobile and work-related accidents.
Spine Pain Management, the public corporate entity, is not involved in providing the medical procedures. They instead provide financial contract services at the regional, state and local levels. Within the Company's target markets, they identify and target key Spinal Health Care Providers who handle large numbers of accident-type cases and have need for their financial management. Spine Pain Management is a Medical Receivables Purchase Company. Doctors in affiliated centers who provide the Spine Diagnostic Injections and treatment have a contract with the Company to "Shift Financial Risk" in collecting the Accounts Receivable for the medical procedures.
Spine Pain Management's care management services help in reducing the financial burden on healthcare providers that provide patients with early-stage diagnostic testing and non-invasive surgical care. This prevents many patients from being unnecessarily delayed or inhibited from obtaining needed treatment. The Company believes that their patient advocacy will be rewarding to patients who obtain needed relief from painful conditions.
The Company helps in coordinating, streamlining and cost effectively financing the patient's needs with the appropriate medical providers to facilitate recovery to maximum medical improvement (MMI).

The Company, by way of their ever-growing list of affiliated Spine Injury Diagnostic Centers presently coordinates two minimally invasive injection procedures. One is Facet Nerve Blocks (Facets) and the other is Percutaneous Disc Decompressions (Perks).

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.36, off by 5.26%, on 38,588 volume with 22 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 201,649, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.15.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

GlobalWise Announces Success of Partner Advisory Board Event
As many investors and traders already know, a micro-cap company announcing a Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire another company or enter some kind of partnership can often be meaningless. It’s not uncommon for these smaller companies to announce LOIs with no intentions of making the necessary preparations for a future, definitive agreement.
Why do they do this? Often because they don’t have much going on and must put out some kind of exciting news to keep existing investors from drawing out their funds, and to attract additional investment from new investors so they can continue paying management salaries they don’t deserve. It’s important investors are aware of this typical strategy to artificially stir up investor interest, and most importantly, take time to look over their history of press releases to see if they followed through with LOIs previously announced.
In March of this year, SilverSun Technologies announced the signing of an LOI to acquire the assets of HighTower, a leading Chicago-based reseller of Sage software applications and a publisher of proprietary business management software enhancements. Just last week, the company reported the finalization of the acquisition, which is expected to bring in approximately $3 million in additional annual revenues (based upon 2011 results), approximately 870 additional Sage ERP customers, an impressive suite of proprietary enhancement software solutions (with approximately 700 users), and a much deeper market penetration in the Midwest.
The company also announced this month the asset purchase of Micro-Point, a Westchester, New York-based managed service provider and reseller of Sage Software products. In addition to being a Sage reseller, Micro-Point has expertise as a hosting and computer services provider.

Synthesis Energy Systems, whose proprietary U-GAS® clean energy (fluidized bed gasification) technology, equipment, and engineering services have rapidly gained acclaim in the energy sector for helping turn low-cost feedstock/biomass into energy and chemical products, reported positive lab-scale output data today, with the completion of testing on three Turkish lignite coal targets earmarked for clean coal power generation projects.
Under development by one of Turkey’s largest independent power project (IPP) developers, Tuten Ltd., the clean coal infrastructure development is being sponsored by a major Turkish utility company intent on modernizing their production footprint. Also part of the project will be Slovakian EPC firm (engineering, procurement, and constriction), Istroenergo Group.
The testing was performed by SYMX at the Des Plaines, Illinois, laboratories of Gas Technology Institute (from whom the company licenses U-GAS), showing 96 to 99.5% single-pass carbon conversions rates on each of the coals.
This is superb news for the project development team, which has devised an ingenious conceptual-level design to provide 50 to 100 MW generation modules based on the cheap, abundant lignite coal. The genius of the design stems from a powerful integration of the gasification technology with a General Electric LM2500+G4 aeroderivative gas turbine.
The amazing diversity, industrial-quality robustness, and general availability provided by GE’s LM2500+G4 turbine is ideal for this sort of syngas application and the SYMX technology is at the heart of the development team’s solution. With viability data in hand, the company is all the more eager to move the project forward, encouraged by a team assembled of some of the top players in the region/sector.
Founding partner of Turkish IPP giant Tuten, Tarik Tuten, hailed the successful testing as a clear sign that advancement to the next stage of the project for Tuten’s utility customer in Turkey will be seen by the sponsor/stakeholders as something in which they can easily place their confidence. Tuten brings a mountain of expertise developing gas-fired IPPs in the 120 to 1200 MW range to the clean coal space and with turn-key versatility experts Istroenergo also on board, it’s no wonder the development team (and their solution) is already drawing accolades.
President and CEO of Aeroderivative Gas Turbines for GE Power & Water, Darryl Wilson, was very pleased to see this perfect use of the LM2500+G4 turbine, for completing the syngas loop from low grade lignite coal, tipping his hat to this winning solution the team has devised.
It’s huge news for SYMX really and the sector as well; after all, such low grade coal like this Turkish lignite is abundant all over the planet, affording generally low recovery costs as well. There is a massive market for such solutions and the underlying dynamics are exceptionally attractive, from lowering dependency on imported energy sources, to better overall domestic resource utilization, and the squeaky clean environmental profile is hard to beat.
South Africa and Turkey are perfect markets for the kinds of solutions being put together by the team around GE technology and the incredible advancements made possible by SYMX’s U-GAS technology are still just the first steps of a better, cleaner, and more efficient energy future. Because the U-GAS technology has a maximum fuel window, able to process all ranks of coal, including coal waste and biomass/feedstock, and is engineered for smaller scale applications, the technology can roll out very fast. Rapid development of such critical infrastructure in developing markets around underutilized, available resources is a recipe for serious revenue momentum.

EMCORE recently announced the introduction of Opticomm-EMCORE NV Series JPEG 2000 products, which provide optimum quality and lowest latency real-time HD video distribution over Internet protocol (IP) to the broadcast and professional audio/visual markets.
Using IP infrastructures, the NV Series sends out high-resolution 3G HD, HDMI, or DVI signals to HD monitors in one or many locations. This technology enables distribution of HD digital content from multiple sources to almost limitless displays of LAN. Having very low latency is a critical aspect of the system when video is transmitting directly from a live site to an editing studio. In the NV Series, HD video and audio signals are received by the encoder, compressed using JPEG 2000, and transmitted via an IP network with a latency of less than 50 milliseconds.
The most flexible HD matrix switching distribution system can be created when the NV Series is combined with a compatible managed Ethernet switch setup. The NV Series enables customers to move from matrix switch to managed-Ethernet switch by cascading multiple switches, so numerous displays can be located long distances from their sources while sustaining consistent 1080p video and sound quality.
The NV Series additionally allows USB data to be sent, along with high-quality HD video and audio distribution signals, to control a remote keyboard and mouse. The NV encoders and decoders can be configured through an application program interface (API) or Web server, and they can also be mounted in a 19” 1RU rack or used as a standalone unit.
Part of a complete HD video over IP solution, the new Opticomm-EMCORE NV Series JPEG 2000 products also include the HD Series MPEG-4/MPEG-2 compression/decompression products.
EMCORE is a leader in providing compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optics and solar power markets. The company’s business segments include Fiber Optics, offering optical components, subsystems, and systems for high-speed telecommunications, cable television, and FTTP networks, as well as products for satellite communications, video transport, and specialty photonics technologies for defense and homeland security applications; and Solar Photovoltaics, providing products for both space and terrestrial solar power applications.
