AVI BioPharma is focusing on the discovery and development of novel RNA-based therapeutics for rare and infectious diseases, and other select disease targets. The Company's therapeutic development programs include lead candidates for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, hemorrhagic virus infections and influenza. AVI BioPharma has their corporate headquarters in Bothell, Washington.
The Company leverages their highly differentiated RNA-based technology platform. They can target a wide spectrum of diseases and disorders through distinct RNA-based mechanisms of action. Unlike other RNA-based approaches, AVI's technologies can be used to directly target both messenger RNA (mRNA) and precursor messenger RNA (pre-mRNA) to either down-regulate (inhibit) or up-regulate (promote) the expression of targeted genes or proteins.
Strategically, AVI BioPharma seeks to build a diversified research and development portfolio balanced between select programs partnered with larger biopharmaceutical companies and AVI retained programs. The Company's RNA-based technologies and PMO-X™, PMOplus™ and PPMO chemistries combine to make a versatile, collaboration-ready, therapeutics research and development platform with extensive applicability.
Their platform has demonstrated utility across multiple therapeutic categories. This includes the promise of potentially transformative, safe and effective treatment options for rare and infectious diseases. Moreover, AVI BioPharma also maintains a continuing interest in establishing research-advancing collaborative agreements with select academic, governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
Recent corporate developments for the Company include announcing that treatment with eteplirsen met the primary efficacy endpoint in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase IIb study in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Eteplirsen is in clinical development for the treatment of DMD. Eteplirsen administered once weekly at 30mg/kg over 24 weeks resulted in a statistically significant (p ≤ 0.002) increase in novel dystrophin (22.5 percent dystrophin-positive fibers as a percentage of normal) compared to no increase in the placebo group. In addition, the Company presented efficacy and safety data from the Phase IIb study examining 24 weeks of treatment with eteplirsen in boys with DMD at the 2012 American Academy of Neurology Meeting.

First Titan Corp., through their wholly owned subsidiary, First Titan Energy, LLC, focuses on the exploration and development of oil and natural gas resources worldwide. First Titan has purchased a new working interest in a Louisiana oil and gas well – the Company's first assets in the domestic energy sector. The well is set to undergo drilling by First Titan's partner, Intrepid Drilling, LLC. First Titan is based in Miramar Beach, Florida.
First Titan continually looks to collaborate with energy developers that are pursuing innovative new methods of oil and gas extraction. This includes the development of new technologies, cleaner methods and unconventional resources. The Company finalized a purchase agreement to acquire a working interest in the Big Canyon Prospect oil and gas lease in West Texas. The Big Canyon Prospect covers approximately 640 net acres in Terrell County. First Titan acquired the majority working interest in the lease from Mesa Chica Geophysical, Inc.
The Company has their South Lake Charles Prospect. This Prospect is seven miles south of the city of Lake Charles in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana. Intrepid Drilling plans to drill a 15,300' high geo-pressure land well in the South Lake Charles Field where two wells have produced 21.3 billion cubic feet of gas and 1.7 million barrels of oil. Intrepid Drilling will operate the well.
First Titan earlier signed an agreement with Green Oil Operating, LLC, to explore the infield development of oil and gas resources in Oklahoma. The reentry well project is three miles south of the town of Atwood, Oklahoma. The Gates #1 S14 Hughes County, Oklahoma Prospect is set in the northern portion of the Pauls Valley Uplift just west of the hinge line of the McAlester-Arkansas deep structure, where folding and faulting is strong. The well has several oil and gas target formations.
In addition, the Conecuh County well is in the Little Cedar Creek Field, Alabama's largest producing oil field. Reserve estimates for the proposed drilling site range from 400,000 to 800,000 barrels of oil, dependent on the presence of both the upper and lower Smackover in the wellbore. The Company also has their Breaux #2 well located in Logan County, Oklahoma. The Breaux #2 horizontal well is First Titan's fourth working interest that it has acquired this year. The Breaux #2 well has already been drilled and cased to a vertical depth of 5,600 feet with a further 2,300 feet of lateral depth in the Hunton Clarita pay zone.
Last Friday, First Titan announced that a drilling rig was being moved to their Alabama oil well this past weekend.

This brings Skinny Water availability to a new height, with some 14,275 retail stores across America featuring the delicious product line.
Skinny Nutritional Corp.

The company's strong emphasis on health, fitness, and community has served marketing initiatives very well.

Skinny Nutritional continues to build value around the Skinny Water brand, and today has numerous trademarks in the healthy beverage and snack food categories. As consumers migrate away from sugar based beverages and empty calories, Skinny Water is ideally positioned to benefit from positive market trends as management focuses on delivering exceptional value to shareholders.

In 2009, its new CEO Jeremy G. Driver came on board. Within one year, Mr. Driver had identified and negotiated an acquisition that would fundamentally reshape the company. This acquisition was made possible by the large direct cash investment by Mr. Driver and his family, as well as other investors.
The company uses only industry standard and time-tested technologies, and avoids unproven "resource plays" and other opportunities that are heavily dependent upon high commodity prices. Not bound by any geographical location or operational strategy, Duma's management team is focused on developing its existing portfolio while pursuing additional opportunities that provide rapid growth, leveraging growing revenue, cash flow, and reserves to accelerate its growth strategy.

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 $0.27, up 3.85%, on 65,191 volume with 21 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 202,994, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.01.
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 Investments, and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, a leading-edge technology company focused on the design, implementation and management of cloud-based Enterprise Content Management (“ECM”) systems in both the public and private sectors, today announce that IntellivueTM ECM software was named the number one ECM solution at the recent Global Transform 2012 conference by “The Week in Imaging.”
An online, interactive one-stop news and information source, “The Week in Imaging” (www.theweekinimaging.com) targets anyone who sells imaging solutions, including independent dealers, VARs, sales, and service personnel in manufacturer direct branches as well as hardware manufacturers and solutions and service providers. Global Transform 2012 is a managed print service (MPS) industry conference for providers, partners, and IT decision makers in the copier and printer industry.
The online article posted by Art Post on the “The Week in Imaging” Web page and titled “Top 7 Solutions at Photizo’s Transform Conference: Intellivue Cost-Per-Page Billing for Document Management Services @ #1” provides a great overview of the IntellivueTM cloud based document management software and how it can create a new revenue model for the copier and printer dealer industry. The number one ranking by such a prestigious industry resource is a great validator of the power of a cloud delivered software from GlobalWise.
“I am very proud of our team and how well received the IntellivueTM software was at the Transform Conference,” stated William J. “BJ” Santiago, CEO of GlobalWise. “We shared a booth with MWA Intelligence, a new GlobalWise Channel Partner recently announced, and to be recognized as the #1 solution at the show by our industry peers at ’The Week in Imaging’ is a fantastic win. Copier and printer dealers traditionally derive their income from leasing of hardware and charging for every page printed. Scanning and retrieval of documents was done at no cost to the client, but with little functionality. By integrating the IntellivueTM software into the imaging hardware, copier dealers can instantly expand their service portfolio with an additional value-added offering, creating a new revenue stream.”
“The power of this solution is that there is no upfront cost,” author Art Post emphasized in the recently published article. “I see IntellivueTM as a tremendous value for the SMB customer. For too long the SMB customer has shied away from content management due to the upfront cost, the training, the IT infrastructure and the thought that they would have to dedicate an employee to operate the software. With this SaaS solution, a company can realize an immediate return on investment from the first month IntellivueTM is deployed.”

USA Recycling Industries, established in 2000, has spent the last 12 years collecting, recycling, and disposing of waste materials for the automotive service center industry. A holding company operating through many company-owned specialty recycling centers, USRI eliminates the burden of getting rid of waste materials such as tires, oil filters, scrap metal, batteries, and much more.
USRI has a simple business model; the company buys waste material from auto service centers and resells it to companies who can treat the materials in an environmentally friendly way, giving the products a second life and destination beyond a landfill. USRI’s portfolio of services includes removal and recycling of the following products:
• Scrap metal: USRI’s recycling centers purchase scrap metal, sort it, and then resell it to an end-user consumer such as a steel mill, foundry, or smelter. These companies then turn the scrap into new metal products;
• Tires: USRI purchases used tires in accordance with all applicable laws and disposes of them to tire recycling facilities, who then create new rubber products;
• Used motor oil: via a vendor partnership with Heritage-Crystal Clean, LLC (NASDAQ: HCCI), USRI collects used motor oil by the gallon and sells to motor oil re-refinery operations who give it a second-life as a new oil product;
• Lubricants: as with the used motor oil services, USRI operates through Heritage-Crystal Clean, LLC to turn waste lubricants into something useful and non-hazardous to the environment;
• Oil filters: a waste material with huge recycling potential, used oil filter numbers in the United States reach 425 million each year. USRI is committed to recycling these filters in an effort to recover as much reusable scrap metal as possible.
• Batteries: USRI also purchases used auto batteries by the pound, and then resells to battery manufacturers who turn them into new auto batteries. Consumers purchase about 3 billion auto batteries per year, and USRI’s recycling efforts keep the toxic wastes associated with them out of the landfills and our environment.
The company also provides export trading and fuel oil delivery services. Currently, all collected recyclable waste materials are sold to end-user-consumers through the USRI’s export trading operations in North America, India, and the United Arab Emirates.

Capstone Turbine, a top global cleantech manufacturer of low-emission microturbines, (and the first company to deliver a commercially viable microturbine to market) with over 6.5k units shipped worldwide, reported some 2MW worth of orders today from two sizeable domestic hydrocarbon producers, marking yet another set of customers in the oil and gas market to seize upon the benefits of the company’s robust, versatile microturbines for on-site prime power.
Once again, trusted CPST distributor Horizon Power Systems can be thanked for diligently working to secure new deals, with the first order (a C1000 Power Package) being a follow-on order from a rapidly developing Eagle Ford Shale operator down in Texas, and the other (a bundle of five C200’s) being destined for a 1MW installation up in Alberta. The Alberta system (a multi-well pad requiring multi-use generation that should see installation/commissioning in late August) in particular will showcase the extreme versatility of the company’s microturbines for being able to process a wide range of fuel types efficiently and effectively (low/high pressure natural gas being a huge draw for the hydrocarbon sector, with biogas/syngas, flare gas, diesel, propane, and kerosene all functioning very well).
Sam Henry, President of Horizon Power Systems, remarked on how CPST hardware was rapidly becoming the power-generation solution of choice in North America’s burgeoning hydrocarbon recovery sector and that the superb feature set engineered into the microturbines has really struck a chord with domestic oil and gas producers. Great news for this globally recognized cleantech leader and this latest order is further confirmation of the upward trend the UL-Certified ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified CPST has exhibited. A firm commitment to manufacturing reliable, industrial-grade equipment has made the LA-headquartered CPST well known, even outside the U.S. and other major markets like China, Mexico, Singapore, South America, and the United Kingdom where the company has sales/service centers.
Capstone’s turbines are known for more than fuel type versatility, though; they are known for being engineered to meet all the needs dreamed of in typical applications and were designed for modularity (can run solo or in series, grid-connected, or stand-alone) as well as extreme robustness (one moving part means low maintenance and long lifecycle, and the patented air bearing means no lubricating or coolant). The appeal to isolated resource recovery sites, (especially in hydrocarbons where natural gas can be utilized effectively for environmentally friendly on-site prime power), as well as for co-generation, backup power, and even hybrid electric vehicle applications, is obvious.
That Eagle Ford operator down in Texas picked up 12 microturbines earlier in the year to power pump jacks for their artificial lift and liked the product so much they came back for the big daddy C1000 to handle the new central gas processing facility power requirements (to be commissioned this summer).
President and CEO of CPST, Darren Jamison, called the orders a clear demonstration of the broad market appeal of the company’s low-emission, durable, and highly-efficient systems, adding that the oil and gas sector in particular was increasingly turning to Capstone as a provider of choice for round-the-clock reliability. Operators in the oil and gas sector really need the kind of well site optimization Capstone’s systems can provide, with production and millions of dollars on the line, often in remote locations. It is a perfect market for the company to see further expansion.
Jamison indicated that this order makes it roughly a dozen such orders pulled down in just the last 20 months from oil and gas operators, asserting that the company will be extremely dutiful in generating sector return growth moving forward, as more and more oil and gas customers seek out CPST’s innovative microturbines to meet their prime power needs.
