  • QR Energy's (QRE) CEO Alan Smith on Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    No, "they" aren't investigating QRE for wrong doing, if by "they" you mean some official body such as the SEC. There are a few slime-ball lawyers attempting to find dissatisfied QRE unit holders for a class-action, but that's par for the course in a merger.

  • Clearing Up Misconceptions About NeoStem's AMR-001 [View article]
    Although not mentioned by name, this patient is involved in NeoStem's phase 2 AMR-001 clinical trial. How do I know? NeoStem is the only current trial similar to the description of this patients treatment.

    CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Nov. 19, 2013
    "In 2003, Melvin Walker lay on an exam table of a Charlotte Hospital. He had suffered a massive heart attack that destroyed a large portion of tissue in his heart.

    "I worked in concrete for about 23 years and started having heart attacks," said Melvin.

    Several years later, Melvin's heart took additional beatings.

    "And they've just been coming one right after the other."

    "I'm just lucky that I can feel them coming and I go to the hospital."

    So far Melvin has suffered four heart attacks and has had six stents put in place.

    In patients like Melvin whose attacks are severe, the heart gets so scarred cardiac tissue no longer performs efficiently.

    "After the procedure, it's like turning the light switch on," said Melvin.

    "It all comes back. It took a little time, but it all comes back."

    Doctors with Novant Health are taking part of clinical trial designed to use stem cell therapy to help in the recovery of the heart muscle. This procedure would regenerate tissue that otherwise would be forever damaged and some patients are already seeing promising results."

  • GOP Hearings On Climate Change May Threaten Entire Green Economy [View article]
    Good article.

    "This EPA manufactured crisis was ceased upon by "Big Oil" and congressional GOP members to hold hearing and the API is starting a campaign to fully repeal the EPA's RFS2 program."

    Should read "seized upon".

  • Bakken Update: Kodiak's Purchase Of Liberty Resources Could Make Or Break Its 2013 [View article]
    You continue to ignore comments that the most likely scenario for KOG is to have another bond issue. Why do you insist on stock dilution as the only way to fund this acquisition?

  • Enbridge (ENB) plans today to replace a section of an oil pipeline in Wisconsin that leaked Friday, though it still does not have a restart date for the artery carrying Canadian crude to the U.S. Although the spill appeared to be relatively small and quickly contained, it comes at a delicate time for Enbridge, whose spills in Alberta and Michigan are branding it with a BP-of-the-Midwest reputation.
     [View news story]
    "BP of the Midwest" is silly, and most importantly, inaccurate.

    Enbridge isn't a driller but a carrier. Problems with their pipelines, and the oil spilled, has been minuscule compared to the volume of oil carried. The few spills that have happened have been quickly contained, with no environmental impact.

    How about just reporting the news, and keeping the intern comments to the break room?
