American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (Pink Sheets:AVOT) is pleased to announce that it has hired a French speaking geologist to search the archives of the Quebec Department of Mines for Rare Earths showings not on a current computer file. The company believes the rare earths industry is where it wants to maintain a very strong focus and is looking to expand its holdings. As neither the Federal nor Quebec Governments have carried out any air borne surveys in this area, the company will seek a contractor to do an air borne Mag-EM radiometric survey. This survey will cover its present holdings and the immediate surrounding area looking for future acquisitions. American Video is pleased to be working in the Province of Quebec as it is rated the number one jurisdiction in the world to carry out mineral exploration. The Quebec Government gives a rebate up to 45% for property expenditures.

China is the world’s major producer of rare earth elements, many are used in today’s technology, such as new energy sources and hybrid cars. China announced in July that it will slash exports for minerals used to make hybrid cars and televisions.

The nation has begun to drastically restrict the exports of rare-earth materials, which frequently find use in “green” technology designs, which includes hybrid vehicles and energy-efficient lighting, also in the medical, defense, and consumer markets. The country delivers nearly 100% of the world’s rare-earth materials: 17 metals which can be hard to refine and that also often occur in alike ore deposits. The cutbacks have resulted in shock waves throughout the electronics industry and might force design changes in the longer term.

Constraints on Chinese exports are forming opportunities for non-Chinese projects.

American Video will aggressively continue to search world-wide for opportunities in Precious, Base and Rare Earths metal projects.



Power3 Medical Products, Inc. (OTC.BB:PWRM) is a leading proteomics company focused on the development of innovative diagnostic tests in the fields of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (commonly known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Power3s management believes it is making great progress in its focus on the development, sales, and marketing of its proprietary innovate diagnostic tests for breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, colon cancer, and certain neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, to name a few

Because early breast cancer is asymptomatic, the only way to detect it is through screening. Mammography is currently the widely accepted method for breast cancer screening. However, most women who have an abnormal mammogram do not have cancer.

Mammography often leads to identification of a “probably benign” lesion or an uninformative mammography. Clinicians may be reluctant to refer such a patient for a biopsy; they may also reluctant to do nothing. Often such patients are referred for frequent repeat mammography examinations.

The availability of an accurate and non-invasive test would avoid such repeated mammogram exams, with their attendant discomfort, inconvenience, x-ray exposure, and emotional stress. In such cases, Power3's BC-SeraPro™ with 80% sensitivity and 87% specificity, could exclude malignancy at higher accuracy than mammography.

PWRM’s BC-SeraPro™ is then an ideal diagnostic test to evaluate breast cancer abnormalities found by mammogram or breast examination. The test would distinguish women who should have a biopsy from those who can safely avoid one. BC-SeraPro™ could detect the disease at a point when treatment is more effective, less expensive, or both.
