The Company is focusing on the rapid completion and production of the Bisha Mine in Eritrea, Africa. The Bisha Project is a fully financed and permitted high-grade gold, copper and zinc deposit with operations to commence late this year. Nevsun Resources Ltd. trades on the NYSE Amex.

The Bisha Mine will be a low-cost gold producer for the first two years. It will be a low-cost, high-grade copper and zinc producer for the remaining 10-year mine life. Further resource potential exists at depth and from nearby discoveries within Nevsun Resources Ltd.'s licensed areas.

The Bisha Project is a large precious and base metal-rich volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit. It is 150 kilometers west of Asmara, Eritrea, East Africa.

Micro Identification Technologies, Inc. (MMTC) Poised to Dominate Rapid Microbial Contamination ID Markets with new MIT 1000 System

Micro Identification Technologies Inc. is the developer of the revolutionary MIT 1000, a laser-based rapid microbial analysis system that harnesses the power of light-scattering technology and image recognition database software to identify, with unprecedented accuracy, various species of pathogenic bacteria, in record time, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.

This device was created to fill the overwhelming demand for rapid identification of microbial contamination that exists within the healthcare and food industries, but also has multiple other applications in markets like clinical diagnostics, drinking water, pharmaceuticals, and semi-conductors.

Data from a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report released recently indicates that an astonishing 76 million cases per year of food borne illness arise in the US alone, and while many of these cases merely cause inordinate discomfort or illness for a few days, 325k hospitalizations resulting from serious illness and an unacceptable 5k deaths are created due to a lack of such systems as the MIT 1000.

Elsewhere among the CDC’s own data are clear indications of an incredibly alarming trend in the rise of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) contamination, 6-9% per year, resulting in some 278k MRSA-infection related hospitalizations in the US alone in 07.

This could all be alleviated tremendously if the MIT 1000 were ubiquitous. The system, which uses its powerful array of 35 photodetectors arranged into 5 arcs surrounding the sample to collect data representing the varying light intensities generated when the solid-state 600 nanometer (30-45 molecular weight, 100 micron) laser strikes the cell, is able to ID 10-50 organisms and provide a match in under 10 minutes, offering an amazing way to quickly screen for MRSA and stop the distribution of contaminated foods.

Furthermore, the simplified design and use of the MIT 1000 – featuring a no-reagent process that requires only a minute sample, leveraged by an intuitive proprietary software environment (which is powerful enough to statistically differentiate bacterium using a massive database quickly and accurately) – runs under a standard Windows XP environment.
Executive VP and COO of MMTC, John Ricardi, projects a worldwide roll-out of the MIT 1000 via strategic partnerships, including a global manufacturer and 10-country distribution network in addition to US operations, with “the first models ready for delivery by midsummer”, and cash flow positive status for the Company within a year.

Ricardi spoke of the MIT 1000 as a true paradigm shift in testing methodologies, and noted how, for nearly 100 years, the slow and cumbersome culture, slide, microscope process has been used, and is used up to the current day to do this sort of analysis.

Ricardi made it quite clear that the MIT 1000 can do in 10 minutes, via one machine (which is a mere 1.25 cubic feet and weighs less than 25lbs. making it portable), what currently takes a scraping sent off to a trained microbiologist in a well-equipped lab 48-72 hours to do.

The MIT 1000 is completely in a class all its own; no competing device on the market today can match the speed and ease-of-use which the MMTC product offers, and because it can be operated by any non-technical personnel on-site with limited half-day training, as opposed to a professional microbiologist in a lab off-site, sophisticated workflow synergies emerge as a result of the presence of this technology in the field.

Ricardi pointed out the best part yet: jaw-dropping cost reduction, literally a fraction of the cost of existing rapid ID. In fact, the MIT 1000 can perform for $0.10 what now costs $2.85, as is clearly detailed in a recent report by leading industrial diagnostics powerhouse Strategic Consulting, Incorporated.

Ricardi plans to lean into the natural traction already afforded within the food industry, and believes the Company is poised to make huge moves due to the “tremendous growth in testing needs”, as the globalization of US food sources increases alongside competing industry pressures to increase efficiency and the bottom line.

Ricardi pointed out that this dynamism has led to increased speed/volume of throughput within the supply chain as a system, leading to increased contamination and hence inevitably and continually growing demand for systems like the MIT 1000, which, Ricardi acknowledges, is not a panacea able to resolve 100% of contamination issues, though it is head-and-shoulders above all alternatives and offers “a time-saving and cost effective solution to help alleviate some of the problem”; modest words, indeed, from the Executive VP of a Company whose product promises to lead to wide-ranging efficiencies in multiple industries.

CitySide Tickets, Inc. (CIST) to Form CitySide Entertainment to Focus on Mixed Martial Arts Segment

CitySide Tickets, Inc., the national ticket shop that got its start outside Fenway Park in Boston, has grown determinedly and strategically from its humble roots to become a major contender in the event ticket market, offering tickets for just about any event out there from sports to theatre and music. The company recently announced a planned move to capitalize on the huge success of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) with the formation of CitySide Entertainment – which will focus on promoting and sponsoring the rapidly growing and unique sport.

MMA draws a young, active demographic with a sizeable chunk of 18-24 olds, especially men, with the unique combination of mixed martial arts disciplines and raw, real full-contact fighting. The sport also draws the affluent as detailed in a recent report by Scarborough Sports Marketing which states the sports fans are 15% more likely to have $75k+ household income and 10% more likely to own a second home.
Although like CIST, MMA has humble roots, it has quickly grown into a multimillion-dollar mainstream sport with a footprint covering training halls throughout the US and abroad as well as pay-per-view and events. MMA is poised to become one of the most stable and profitable operating areas for ticket vendors like CIST.

CitySide CEO Michael DeAmicis confirmed the status of MMA as being “one of the fastest growing sports in the United States” and simply put that it was a natural move for the Company, which wants to become a major player in event ticket market. CitySide Tickets aims to make MMA a big part of their overall growth strategy, leveraging “the rapid growth within the MMA” to expand its own reach and influence.

CitySide Tickets is based in Boston with a store front but also vends tickets via their e-commerce site CitySideTickets.com and toll-free number (1-800-ANY-SEAT) for all kinds of events, no matter what your preference, including:

• Sports: MLB Baseball; NBA Basketball; NFL Football; NHL Hockey; Monster Jam; US Open Tennis Championship; WWE- World Wrestling Entertainment; National Finals Rodeo; and UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship.
• Concerts: Taylor Swift; Bon Jovi; Lady Gaga; Elton John; Billy Joel; and many more too numerous to list.
• Theatre: Wicked, The Jersey Boys, South Pacific, and Phantom of the Opera, to name a few.
• Racing: Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway and at Atlanta Motor Speedway; Darlington Raceway; Indianapolis Motor Speedway; Michigan International Speedway; Pocono Raceway and Watkins Glen International.

EGPI Firecreek, Inc. (EFIR) Reports $4M Rise in Assets, Provides Status Update on West Texas Three Well Program and Ongoing Acquisitions

EGPI Firecreek, Inc., through its wholly-owned subsidiary Firecreek, is focused on rehabilitating and enhancing production methodologies in order to yield greater efficiency from existing fields while actively engaging in the acquisition of oil fields with proven reserves.
The Company today provided a status update on its West Texas Three Well Program (the Program) with Whitt Oil and Gas, Inc., (the Operator), in addition to evaluations currently underway.

With imminent production capacity from the Program, EFIR was able to report a $4M increase in assets on the Company’s recently filed 10-K for FY 09 (ended Dec 31).
Rehab of the Program’s first target, the Young well, has proceeded apace of expectations despite record breaking rain, snow and even ice storms during 1Q 2010. Showing excellent initial results, the well is now being tested to quantify maximum resource potential and the need for any additional stimuli.

Rehab of the Program’s second objective, the McWhorter well, kicked off on March 29, with initial prep work and the identification of formation intervals via the gamma ray electric log in order to accurately plan the overall work program.

During initial prep work, the formation already began coughing up oil and gas, so the Operator ordered a 2-day swab test to determine if additional stimulation is even necessary, suspecting that the well could just be put on the pump and begin production immediately.

With such encouraging reports from the Operator, everything looks as though it is progressing on schedule, with the swab test results due April 16, and a projected completion for all three wells within the program within just three more weeks.

In addition to the rousing news about operations in West Texas, EFIR is actively engaged in negotiating several acquisitions in and around West Texas, in the 900-33k-acre range, which would entail rehabilitation, enhancement, and new drilling on multiple wells; simultaneously, the Company is negotiating acquisitions in oil and gas servicing, and anticipates aggressively securing Definitive Agreements to that effect.

China Solar & Clean Energy Solutions (CSOL) Posts FY 2009 Results

China Solar & Clean Energy Solutions Inc. manufactures and distributes solar water heaters and space heating devices and provides renewable energy solutions in the People’s Republic of China. The company today reported its financial results for the full year ended December 31, 2009.

China Solar posted revenue at $26 million for the full year ended December 31, 2009, as compared to $42 million for 2008, a decrease of $15 million or 37 percent year-over-year.
The company attributes the decrease primarily due to the disposal of Shenzhen Pengsangpu Solar Industrial Products Corporation (SZPSP) paired with the continuous decrease in the sales of single solar products under the management of Deli Solar (Bazhou). Sales revenue for single solar products for 2009 was $5.6 million, as compared to $26 million for 2008.

However, the company said annual sales for industrial energy-saving projects in Tianjin Huaneng remained “stable and healthy.” Sales revenue for industrial waste heat recovery systems for the year of 2009 was $20 million, as compared to $15 million for the previous year.
Net income was $1.1 million for the full year ended December 31, 2009, with diluted earnings per share of $0.07, compared to $4.7 million in net loss for the year of 2008. The turnaround is a result of cash collected after the disposal of SZPSP, the increase in profitability of Tianjin Huaneng and the deduction of the liquidity penalty.

Deli Du, CEO and president of China Solar, said solid sales and a change-up in the company’s operations opens the door for future growth. “I am very glad to see that we regain profitability in the year of 2009 thanks to strong sales growth of the industrial energy-saving projects under the management of Tianjin Huaneng and the disposal of the loss-making business with SZPSP. Our ongoing strategy of transition from a single solar product manufacturer to a renewable energy solutions provider for industrial and real-estate projects has well positioned China Solar to capitalize on the more profitable opportunities in the burgeoning Chinese renewable energy market,” Du stated in the press release. “We will continue to mobilize our resources on the more profitable business for industrial clients and to maximize the stock value for our shareholders.”
