MDU Communications International, Inc. is a national provider of digital satellite television, high-speed Internet, digital voice and other information and communication services. The Company provides the aforementioned to residents living in the United States multi-dwelling unit (MDU) market, estimated to include 26 million residences. The Company derives revenue through the sale of subscription services to owners and residents of MDUs resulting in monthly annuity-like revenue streams. MDU Communications lists on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company has their headquarters in Totowa, New Jersey.
MDUs include apartment buildings, condominiums, gated communities, universities and other properties having multiple units located within a defined area. The Company negotiates long-term access agreements with the owners and managers of MDU properties allowing them the right to design, install, own and operate the infrastructure and systems required to provide digital satellite television, high-speed Internet, digital voice, and potentially other services, to their residents.
MDU Communications' proprietary delivery and design solutions and access agreements differentiate it from other multi-family service providers by way of an innovative strategy of balancing the information and communication needs of today's MDU residents with the technology concerns of property managers and owners and providing the best overall service to both. The Company has collaborated with DIRECTV, Inc. to accomplish this objective.
They have been working with large property owners and real estate investment trusts (REITs) such as AvalonBay Communities, Post Properties, Roseland Property Co., Related Companies, the U.S. Army, and a number of others, to understand and meet the technology and service needs of these groups.

Syntroleum Corp. (SYNM)
Wall Street Resources reported recently on Syntroleum Corp. (SYNM), Investor Update, Greenbackers did earlier and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Listed on the OTCBB, Syntroleum Corp. produces synthetic fuels from a wide range of feedstock - from natural gas to fats, oils and greases. The Fischer-Tropsch process has already been utilized by way of the Company's comprehensive labs and production facilities to produce significant amounts of synthetic diesel and jet fuel. Syntroleum is also utilizing their Bio-Synfining™ technology to produce renewable synthetic fuels of high quality. Founded in 1984 by Kenneth L. Agee, Syntroleum is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Syntroleum's synthetic fuel technologies make it a recognized force in the renewable fuels, biomass-to-liquids (BTL), gas-to-liquids (GTL), and coal-to-liquids (CTL) industries. Syntroleum owns the Syntroleum® Process for Fischer-Tropsch (FT) conversion of synthesis gas derived from biomass, coal, natural gas and other carbon-based feedstocks into liquid hydrocarbons. They also own the Synfining® Process for upgrading FT liquid hydrocarbons into middle distillate products such as synthetic diesel and jet fuels, and the Bio-Synfining™ technology for converting animal fat and vegetable oil feedstocks into middle distillate products such as renewable diesel and jet fuel using inedible fats and greases as feedstock.
A 50/50 venture (going by the name Dynamic Fuels) formed to construct and operate multiple renewable synthetic fuels facilities, with production on the first site beginning in 2010. Syntroleum plans to use their portfolio of technologies to develop and participate in synthetic and renewable fuel projects.
Syntroleum's Fischer-Tropsch GTL technology allows them to produce gas onshore and in marine environments. Their process realizes the advantages of building a plant on a much smaller footprint. Consequently, this enables economic development of fields in the one-to-three trillion cubic feet range, many in remote locations. Their process also represents a solution to flaring.
Syntroleum's Fischer-Tropsch technology can also be applied to coal. By applying the Syntroleum Process, underused coal resources could be converted to ultra-clean transportation fuels. This could provide a new source of clean energy and reduce dependence on oil from politically unstable regions.

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 $0.30, off by 0.03%, on 84,896 volume with 30 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 196,555, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.06.
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.

Along with the growing development of stem cell technology as a tool for both research and therapeutics, stem cell banking has become more widespread, both in the U.S. and around the world. The preservation of stem cells, whether sourced and preserved for an individual family or the general population, is seen as an important way to cost effectively facilitate the availability of stem cells, and different stem cell banks have been set up to hold stem cells of different types.
One stem cell bank, UniStemCell bank, is unique in the world, because it holds the life science industry’s first collection of non-embryonic histocompatible human stem cells, available for research and commercial use. International Stem Cell Corporation’s proprietary technique for creating such histocompatible stem cells, a process called parthenogenesis, uses unfertilized human eggs. By so doing, the process avoids the controversy of using stem cells from human embryos, and also results in the stem cells inheriting a duplicate set of human leukocyte antigen genes. This significantly reduces the possibility of the derived cells being rejected by an individual’s immune system, making a single cell line suitable for treating millions of individuals. A relatively small number of such stem cell lines could be enough to provide immune-matched cells to a significant percentage of the world’s population.
For ISCO, revenue could be generated from universal stem cell bank franchises across populations and scientists accessing these lines. This will provide additional validation of the hpSC lines as they are tested and developed by others across a range of potential applications.

Facing an economic environment still in a slump, Labor Smart, an emerging provider of on-demand temporary labor, primarily for the SMB (small and medium sized business) market, has done remarkably well. The Georgia based company has just announced that revenue for the first half of the company’s fiscal year, January 1 through June 15, has exceeded $2.5 million. Labor Smart was incorporated on May 31, 2011, and only began trading on the OTCBB two months ago.
The company’s CEO, Ryan Schadel, commented on the company’s surprising growth: “This is a major milestone for our young, fast growing company. We booked $1.183 million in revenue in the first quarter of 2012. As of week ending June 15, 2012, our Year-to-Date revenue was in excess of $2.5 million. In addition to this milestone, we are starting to see revenues build in our 4 most recently opened branch locations. We are anxious to get our 2nd Quarter results filed and are very optimistic about the future of Labor Smart. The third quarter is going to be very exciting as we continue to ramp up our sales and begin preparations for new branch openings in 2013.”
Labor Smart focuses on labor solutions for the warehouse, light industrial, construction, hospitality, special events, and retail industries. Although it serves largely the SMB market, its clients range up to fortune 100 companies. Labor Smart currently operates 6 branch locations in the Southeast U.S., and the company’s management has stated their goal to continue branch expansion, toward establishing a nationwide presence.

Radius Gold, which has already established a strong precious metal acreage footprint in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru, and Mexico, reported today on completion of work at the company’s 100%-owned Tlacolula Property in a resource-rich district of Oaxaca, Mexico, by Fortuna Silver Mines Incorporated (which has the option to acquire up to a 60% interest via staged annual payments of $250k in cash and stock, the outlay of at least $2M in CAPEX at the site, and some 4,921 feet of drilling within three years).
[The kind of high-grade silver, as well as gold-bearing low sulphidation epithermal vein mineralization that characterizes the regional geology, in addition to the presence of several other active mining operations in the vicinity, including in the proximal Taviche District, where these sources have been mined since the 16th century, are strong indications of the production potential at Tlacolula. The Tlacolula silver project itself is some 204k plus acres of prime territory in the heart of this low sulfidation epithermal veining that characterizes the Tlacolula area of central Oaxaca and the findings by Fortuna largely reinforce the established portrait for Tlacolula.
Surface mapping and channel sampling efforts by Fortuna have yielded a broad array of hearty data for us to look at, including some really nice intervals, like 20.7 feet at 19.34 g/t Au and 986 g/t Ag (channel starts and/or ends in mineralization), 31.5 feet at 0.13 g/t Au and 295 g/t Ag (also an “open” channel), and 3.3 feet at 4.28 g/t Au and 367 g/t Ag.
The channel samples should be giving us a clear picture of the true widths of mineralized resource structures, as they are sub-perpendicular to the vein systems. Drilling to further define the structures is slated for the middle of July. The company will be going after the two main vein structures spotlighted by this latest data (in conjunction with prior analysis), which appear to be some 5,577 feet along strike in total and fall within the project area. Further exploration should help extend the veins as new data comes in regarding the overall extent of mineralization and Radius will be issuing a report on Tlacolula once discovery efforts have progressed.
NI 43-101 Qualified Person for the report breakdown was APEGBC (Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia) member, David Clark, M.Sc., P.Geo., who has verified the technical accuracy of the report data as provided to Radius (Radius has not yet independently verified the results).
With over a decade exploring for gold in Latin America, an expansive regional joint venture window, and the company’s core Holly-Banderas gold/silver project outside Guatemala City under their belts, Radius Gold has come full circle with a solid development strategy and a fistful of 100%-owned exploration plays.
A day out from the Institute for Supply Management’s globally dismal Purchasing Managers Indexes (including the lowest U.S. figure in three years), we are looking at the inescapability of interest rate cuts/easing with investors eyeing top central banks like the FRS, ECB, Bank of England, as well as the Chinese central bank, the People’s Bank of China, for metal rally catalysts. One thing is certain, in a world of increasing uncertainty about currency stability and sovereign debt, all roads lead to gold and silver.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that China’s battered real estate market may be on the mend. If this market does turn around, it will reduce the chances that the country’s already slowing economy does not completely stall out in the second half of this year.
According to a survey of property developers and real estate firms, the average price of housing in 100 major Chinese cities rose in June from May. This comes after nine straight months of decline. The survey followed other signs that China’s real estate market may have bottomed, including a pick-up in real estate investment in May and a far shallower drop in property sales during that month compared with April.
The survey revealed that prices for housing in the country’s largest cities strengthened the most, including Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. Sales also were on the rise. In Beijing, for example, sales rose 10.5% in June from May to 25,602 units. That level is 50.6% higher than the year ago level. Separately, Standard Chartered reported that sales of apartments in China’s largest cities have started to increase thanks to two years of declining prices and lower interest rates.
The rebound in Chinese real estate is an important development for the global economy and investors around the world. That is because, according to GK Dragonomics, real estate and property construction account for about 11% of the Chinese economy. And the share of the economy is about twice that when accounting for other industries like appliances and furniture that are tied to real estate. Bottom line for investors is that, if the rebound continues, China will be on the prowl for all sorts of goods and services again, particularly commodities.
