Trading on the OTCBB, Clean Wind Energy Tower, Inc., via their wholly owned subsidiary, Clean Wind Energy, Inc. has designed and is preparing to develop, and construct large "Downdraft Towers". These Downdraft Towers use benevolent, non-toxic natural elements. They operate with virtually no carbon footprint, fuel consumption, or residual waste to generate electricity and clean water economically by integrating and synthesizing a number of proven as well as emerging technologies: Clean Wind Energy Tower is based in Annapolis, Maryland.
The Company’s core objective and focus is to become a leading provider of clean efficient green energy to the world communities at a reasonable cost without the destructive residuals of fossil fuel. They are working to accomplish this while continuing to generate innovative technological solutions for today and tomorrow's electrical power needs. Additionally, they intend to establish partnerships at home and worldwide to propagate these Downdraft Tower systems and meet increasing global demand for clean water and electricity. Clean Wind Energy Tower has filed several patents that they believe will further enhance this potentially revolutionary technology.
The Downdraft Tower is a hollow cylinder with a water spray system at the top. Pumps deliver water to the top of the Downdraft Tower to spray a fine mist across the entire opening. The water evaporates and cools the hot dry air at the top. The cooled air is denser and heavier than the outside warmer air and falls through the cylinder at speeds up to and greater than 50 mph, driving the turbines located at the base of the structure.
The turbines power generators, to produce electricity. As currently designed, Clean Wind anticipates that each Downdraft Tower will be capable of generating, on an hourly basis, up to 2,500 megawatt hours, gross, of which approximately one-third will be used to power their operations.
This past July, Clean Wind Energy Tower announced the publishing of their patent titled Efficient Energy Conversion Devices & Methods (U.S. Pat. No. 8,120,191) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent covers specific aspects of deploying multiple turbines in a wind tunnel coupled to a novel hydraulic system capable of maintaining high efficiency hydraulic to electric conversion under a broad variance of wind speeds. The ultimate goal is to maximize the capture and utilization of all available wind energy in any given wind tunnel, as well as providing a consistency of power output during any deviations in wind speed.

ZENN Motor Company, Inc. (ZNN.V)
Alternative Energy and AllPennyStocks reported previously on ZENN Motor Company, Inc. (ZNN.V), and today we choose to highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
ZENN Motor Company, Inc., a development stage company, focuses on providing power storage solutions and related technologies to the automotive industry. The Company has a technology agreement with EEStor, Inc. This agreement provides certain exclusive and non-exclusive rights to purchase and deploy Electrical Energy Storage Units (EESU’s), a high-energy-density ceramic ultra capacitor. ZENN Motor Company has their corporate headquarters in Toronto, Ontario. The Company lists on the TSX Venture Exchange and on the OTC Pink under the symbol ZNNMF.
ZENN’s intention is to supply their products to new vehicles, specialty vehicles, and used vehicles for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), tier 1 companies, and conversion upfitters. The Company’s dedication is to enabling emission-free, energy-efficient transportation. Technologies and solutions, powered by EEStor's electrical energy storage units (EESU’s) have the potential to enable OEMs and Tier 1 partners to deliver advanced electric transportation solutions to their customers.
Last week, ZENN provided an update on EEStor and their progress in the development of their Electrical Energy Storage Units (EESU’s). On September 10, 2012 representatives of ZENN and their consultant (Mr. John Galvagni, an expert in capacitors with extensive industry experience in energy storage) attended at the facilities of EEStor in Cedar Park, Texas. The ZENN team was given unprecedented access to EEStor and their technology. EEStor provided an in-depth briefing on the history of their development of EESU’s. They allowed ZENN's team to observe testing on various layers produced by EEStor.
EEStor is producing EESU layers in their facility in Cedar Park, Texas. The ZENN team was given a full tour of the state of the art facility. It observed a recently produced layer which was tested at 1 volt and had an observed permittivity level in excess of 100,000. The layer did not contain any of EEStor's proprietary composition-modified barium titanate (CMBT) powders and so did not undergo testing at higher voltages.
Mr. Galvagni provided his preliminary report to ZENN and noted that the level of permittivity achieved in the layers without CMBT is unprecedented and appears to represent a significant breakthrough in dielectric materials. The fact that permittivity of the layer with CMBT was maintained across an extensive voltage range is a positive achievement as to date higher permittivity dielectric materials have shown significant declines in permittivity as voltage is increased.
The consistency and characteristics of the CMBT appear to be at a level of purity not previously attained. The observed leakage rates are very compelling for energy storage applications and the plant employs advanced technologies and appears to be easily scalable.
ZENN Motor Company, Inc. (ZNN.V), closed Monday’s session at $0.90, up 2.27%, on 826,150 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.53/$1.92.

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 $0.325, up 12.07%, on 206,909 volume with 46 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 73,665, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$0.97.
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.

Steel production has always been as much about knowing your market and associated logistics as it has been about production capacity. Although Longhai Steel’s advanced production technologies and associated efficiencies give the company a decided edge in the marketplace, the fact that the company is located in Hebei province, China’s biggest steel and steel wire producing area, has played a beneficial role. Nearly half of China’s steel consumption comes from construction, and Hebei province, surrounding Beijing, is located near the country’s eastern coast where construction and associated manufacturers and distributors are concentrated. With a solid in-place infrastructure and network of industry elements, logistics is optimized.
Hebei’s rich assortment of distributors minimizes transportation issues. Longhai’s high quality steel wire is sold through private distributors and trading companies to third-party processors, with fully 80% of it in Hebei. Close relationships with key distributors have meant economically beneficial terms for Longhai, where on-demand manufacturing payments are collected in advance, allowing the company to finance the purchase of raw materials and reduce accounts receivable. Over half of the company’s sales dollars come from its top 5 customers.
In addition, an advantage to Longhai being proximate to other steel producers is the increased potential for acquisition. China’s steel industry is highly fragmented, a product of the industry’s rapid development. There are numerous small-scale operators, lacking the capital to expand, resulting in industry-wide duplication and inefficiencies. A major consolidation move is now underway, a government effort to reduce obsolete capacity, drive cost reductions, and increase energy efficiency. Longhai continues to actively identify and acquire modern, high-quality producers at low valuations, and plans to expand its operations and sales by acquiring steel wire producers with production facilities near its current facilities, of which there are plenty.

Although few would think of Skinny Water, the flagship brand of Skinny Nutritional, as a health industry product, an increasing body of facts suggests that its role in America’s physical well-being may be its most important contribution.
Consider this: According to the International Federation of the Red Cross, obesity has now become a bigger problem in the world than starvation. In the U.S. alone, medical costs associated with obesity are now well over $100 billion dollars annually. Today, most Americans are considered overweight or obese. Although there are defined measurements that determine the difference between someone being labeled “overweight” or “obese,” the fact is that both have been associated with significant health problems, which in turn affect healthcare in addition to lost productivity.
Technology has offered food producers a way to increased productivity through the production of foods that are easier to grow, process, and distribute, though they are poorly suited to the way that our bodies evolved. Animal fats and processed carbohydrates continue to gain ground around the world as a cost effective and popular way to feed the masses, but the long-term social cost of this route has become increasingly clear. Obesity in the U.S. has nearly tripled in the past thirty years, and associated costs have exploded.
While developing countries are adopting the American diet, America and other industrialized countries are now desperately looking for a better alternative, something that will meet market needs without killing the consumer in the process. New York City’s recent ban on certain sugar-sweetened beverages larger than 16 ounces suggests that the government considers obesity a legitimate target, much like cigarettes.
Skinny Nutritional has seen this coming, and has formulated an expanding portfolio of products that are arguably more health oriented than anything on the market. They feel that they’ve been able to bridge the perceived gap between what the market wants and what it needs, without government intervention. The company’s Skinny Water collection of 100% naturally flavored drinks have, unlike their major competitors, zero sugar, zero calories, zero carbs, and also zero sodium, along with various combinations of vitamins and minerals. It’s the healthiest water you can buy, which gives Skinny the advantage in an increasingly competitive and growing health-conscious market.

For organizations and businesses, the integration of computer technology over the past 60 years has been about the electronic storage, processing, and retrieval of data. The data represented everything from inventory to accounting data to employ records, anything that the organization or business needed to track. But it gradually became clear that data was not the same as documents. A single document could contain all sorts of data, which in turn could feed multiple and diverse software applications. The multitude of documents pouring into the system could themselves be difficult or even impossible to access and manage in a consistent way. There was soon an emerging need for systems that could capture, store, and deliver documents as well as content in a highly organized and efficient manner, systems that were far more than just basic file management. Enterprise Content Management (ECM) is the modern response to that need.
GlobalWise Investments, with its subsidiary Intellinetics, provides businesses and organizations the latest in ECM capability, covering virtually any type of document, and offering the benefits of cloud technology for high-speed and secured document access 24/7 from anyplace in the world. The company’s market differentiating advantages include its advanced technology and business model:
• Offering open, cloud-based computing software, GlobalWise aims to capture a significant share of the underserved and compliance-heavy SMB market.
• The company’s business model of integrating ECM technology with the existing copier and printer market provides a simple and cost effective portal for small business, giving users the option to instantly “ECM” anything that is copied or printed on a pay-per-click basis, while giving GlobalWise access to copy/printer dealers who are looking for a new value-added offering.
• The ECM industry is expected to exceed $5.7 billion by 2014, with Gartner predicting compound annual growth of over 10%.
