  • Killing Cancer Stem Cells: The Final Battle? [View article]
    If salinomycin is that effective in reducing cancer in rodents, does it also prevent cancer in chickens since it's in the chicken feed? And why not pursue a medical use patent? Atheronova (OTCQB:AHRO) has patented bile salts for use in atheroma reduction, and these bile salts are found naturally. With the cost of health care rising, it would seem better to find a lower cost solution, that would be easier to mass market globally and have better insurance coverage. In other words, salinomycin or safer analogue versus yet another monoclonal that will add more to the cost of health care. With 50% of all health insurance subsidized by the government! the FDA I believe will not only be looking in the future at just safety and efficacy, but also cost. I understand that currently monoclonals have a higher success in drug approval than smaller molecules for some reason, and that's why the drug companies push towards this method.

  • Starbucks: Can Teavana Conquer The American Tea Market? [View article]
    I went to a Teavana at a large mall in a big city. People were friendly, tea samples were good. Only problem- no sitting area and not the same cozy social atmosphere at Starbucks . Part of hot beverage drinking is the social experience, which they may need to tap into.

  • Apple's Plan To 'Take By Storm' The Smartphone Market In 2014 Materializes [View article]
    What about demand for a phone that has expandable memory and a real USB port. My 16g iPhone phone quickly filled up with OS upgrades, photos and apps. Now I am unhappily locked into another year of my two year contract. USB functionality on iPhone and iPad would allow a host of devices to be connected including printers and scanners more easily .

  • Why Electric Beats Natural Gas Vehicles: It's All About The Re-Fueling Network [View article]
    I agree that its hard to approve new nuclear plants and finding waste sites for uranium is hard although safer designs are on the way that would not repeat what happened in Japan, with carbon type spheres mixed with uranium spheres in the main reactor. The EPA now has blocked further coal fired plants. The electric grid is still mostly coal related, so using an electric car actually pollutes the environment. Electric car batteries add 10K to the cost of a car, have to eventually be replaced affecting resale value, and batteries are toxic for the environment and recycling is an issue. With new nuclear plants slow to open, and a moratorium on coal power, natural gas will certainly power utilites in the future, and certainly will be low cost for trucks and vehicles since we now have 300 years of natural gas reserves.
    Solar and wind are still too expensive for the grid. Natural gas has to be at least the next bridge fuel for cars and utilities.
