    I've been assuming we're past the point of needing to be concerned about a $40K daily trading volume. -- Correct?

    "Does this make me an Axionista? :)"

    Yep, overweight and underwater -- but as hopeful as ever!

    RA> I'm happy to hear the Lipo C is working well for you. I'm also happy to hear you've discovered Dr. Thomas Levy, who has quite a compendium of knowledge on Vitamin C therapy. The following article on how to use it to increase the effectiveness and safety of vaccinations may be one of his most important: --- http://bit.ly/1gn7nuf

    Russia charges the U.S. around $75 million to send an astronaut into space -- the total cost is nearly three-quarters of a billion including the required water, oxygen, food, and equipment a human needs. Bloom said that could drop to $40,000 if reusable rockets became the norm. ...... “All by himself Elon Musk is going to force a drastic change in the space launch business,”

    Now that it appears the PIPRs are mostly gone, what could a near-term downside catalyst be? I don't see any obvious ones. The ongoing financing concerns are always there, but it seems unlikely there'll be undue fretting on that front until at least early summer, or later.

    Plug's pps meltdown today from $11.72 to (currently) $6.80 apparently came in response to the $5.74/share financing. Reminds me of Axion's pps meltdown in Feb. 2012 from .60+ after the .35 per share financing was announced.

    ZBB dropping today from a high of $4.75 to (currently) ~$3.00 is a quite a drop as well. What's with all the volatility? Are the high frequency traders targeting these "hot" green stocks and creating massive movements? FCEL is down sharply as well.

    What might this portend for Axion at some point?

    383> Would you have any kind of guesstimate on how much rigorous testing Kia may have done with their lead carbon battery, particularly in comparison to the years BMW and NS has done with the PbC? --- I've also considered that since Kia is only unveiling a "concept car", perhaps they haven't yet made a final decision on their lead carbon battery of choice. --- Thanks for your informative posts.

    RA> "I love the story about the doctor experimenting to treat polio kids. You'd think curing them would have been a story to catch national attention?"
    ---
    My understanding is his work was published in medical journals at the time, and that he presented his results at a major AMA conference in Chicago around 1951. I don't recall the specifics, but it was apparently well known at the time Jonas Salk was working on a polio vaccination, very little enthusiasm was shown, and no money was allocated toward research. Lots of politics in "medical science".

    I think there's only a couple different brands of liposomal Vitamin C on the market, and are fairly expensive. (http://bit.ly/1k90ygj). I've learned to easily make my own, which is very INexpensive. There's a good number of YouTube videos on how to make it yourself.

    Re: minerals; I consume a lot of Himalayan salt, which is 15% minerals by weight. I believe most people don't get enough natural salt, but I use it liberally to get both the natural sodium and minerals my body needs. Lipo C + salt + minerals is great for teeth, bones, and many other things. Here's a 4-min. video entitled, "Sole: My Replacement for Morning Coffee"

    http://bit.ly/1k90ygl

    I believe the reason salt has gotten such a bad rap is because most salt consumed is the highly processed (and toxic) commercial variety. Sea salt is also quite highly processed, and not much better.

    Interestingly, a number of people feel they've successfully treated their Lyme with high doses of salt combined with high doses of Vit. C (about 15 g/day of each). I'm just getting started on seeing what this protocol may do for me.

    Thank you kindly RuggedDC for your supportive words. I was hesitant to "take up so much room" on an investment blog with some of my hard won Lyme knowledge, but I figured it's Sunday, and APC #312 will be history in no time - especially with the recent fast-paced activity!

    I figured some may remember these references if it ever became necessary to do so. One last thing to emphasize: Lyme is often referred to as the great masquerader. Doctors often mis-diagnose it for other diseases. So if you or someone you know has puzzling health symptoms that you can't seem to trace down, you may want to consider "reliable" Lyme testing (conventional is not reliable).

    RA> I grew up in central Wisconsin getting bit occasionally by ticks. The northeast and the upper mid-west (especially Wisconsin) are major hotspots, but Lyme is now prevalent in all 50 states, and unfortunately is often mis-diagnosed as a different neurological disease.

    I consulted with a local ND who said he's had a lot of success treating people with cats claw and teasel root. He believes teasel root especially can knock out nascent Lyme infections pronto. So my thought was, why not just take this tincture regularly during tick season?

    The other supplement I believe could be just as helpful is Liposomal Vitamin C. Linus Pauling, who is well known for his advocacy of Vitamin C therapy, was sort of mentored by a rural country doctor from N. Carolina who practiced back in the 1940's.

    This doctor was at a loss as to how to treat the many children coming in with polio. But having read some interesting articles on IV Vitamin C, he thought why not give it a try on these children with polio. In short, he treated 60 kids, and they were all healed within 3-5 days.

    Since Vit. C is a powerful anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-parastic, and anti-poison of any kind, he started using it to treat tetanus, spider bites, other childhood diseases like measles, chicken pox, diphtheria, etc., and had remarkable success.

    The medical establishment seems to view Linus Pauling as a genius, but who perhaps got a little daffy with his Vitamin C enthusiasm. But I think he was on to something.

    Liposomal C is regular Vit. C coated with lecithin, giving it a fat coating. This makes it about four times more absorbable than regular C, and it's able to concentrate inside cells (which are fat soluble) and knock out intracellular infections. Many think it’s even more effective than IV Vitamin C (which is expensive and cumbersome), and has been used successfully by many to treat cancer, liver diseases, mitochondrial diseases, etc.

    I've recommended Lipo C to many of my healthy friends, and haven gotten feedback on how they are experiencing better energy as a result. One described his experience as having drunk a lot of coffee without the wiredness. Vit. C therapy is currently on the radar screen in New Zealand and Australia as patients are beginning to demand their doctors use it to treat the H1N1 flu. Here’s a link to a quick 4-min. video story on how this awareness got started:

    http://bit.ly/1lLWfuq

    Because of my own experience with Lyme, I think one of Lipo C's greatest benefits may be its use as a preventative measure of ever getting Lyme in the first place. Many who get it never know they have it until many years of suffering later. I'm convinced that in most instances, that doesn't need to be the case.

    HTL, D-inv, thank you for your kind words. D-inv, antibiotics (Abx) are very effective within the first few weeks of contracting Lyme, and in most cases can knock it out completely. But Abx target bacterial cell walls, and since Lyme bacteria morph into cell-wall deficient forms after a while, Abx become much less effective against them. In addition, the bacteria build protective cysts that are mostly impenetrable by Abx. So you want to hit Lyme with Abx BEFORE the bacteria starts morphing into other forms.

    Since I've likely had this for 35+ years, I'm not even considering doing Abx, because many people report becoming far worse after doing so. In short, battling a Lyme infection AND battling the effects of long-term Abx use is too much for many to handle, the more so the older a person is.

    This is where my Axion investment comes in. I'm hoping to use my profits to invest in some fairly expensive therapies that are not covered by insurance, including a FIR sauna, my own hyperbaric oxygen chamber (HBOT), and a number of other therapies. I feel confident I can start making some purchases this coming year, and expect incremental health improvements as a result. And then I can start preparing for my post-retirement age career!

    RA> I'm in just about the opposite situation. Because of everything I’ve done for myself while battling chronic Lyme (unknowingly because of the politics surrounding proper diagnosis), I look like a trim and fit much younger man. But because my body has been dealing with the effects of Lyme infections for the past 35+ years, I often feel a 100+ years old. So your thoughts about health are well taken.

    BTW, if anybody would be interested in some tips on how to protect you and/or your family from ever getting Lyme (even if you’ve been bitten by a tick), let me know. I’m convinced a couple of OTC supplements taken as a preventive measure, especially during tick season, can be very effective in preventing any Lyme infection from ever taking hold. The critical thing is to never let it take hold, because if it does, it can be very difficult to eradicate.

    I appreciate all the replies and perspectives, and have no doubts Axion's electrode is way better than any kind of carbon paste alternative. But I'm still curious if we know the approximate cost Axion would charge battery manufacturers for their electrode.
