Access to affordable healthcare in the United States has been an entitlement, subject to a seemingly arbitrary matrix of factors. Now government insurance applications are available for the elderly, permanently disabled, and those that have failing kidneys, the impoverished and children from low-income parents. Yet how poor must one be to be considered for such programs varies from state to state and from year to year. Employees at most large firms and many small ones can take advantage of group insurance plans negotiated by their employers. Although millions of people who work with low-paying service, retail and also contracting jobs have got to seek individual insurance plans, which may be unaffordable and also unavailable because of their medical histories. Others get hold of insurance with deductibles so high or insurance limits so reduced that one bad accident or illness could actually bankrupt them. The need for affordable healthcare alternatives has never been greater.

China has started to drastically reduce the exports of rare-earth materials, which frequently are used in “green” technology designs, including hybrid vehicles and energy-efficient lighting, as well as in the healthcare, defense, and consumer markets. The nation supplies nearly 100% of the world’s rare-earth materials: 17 metals which are difficult to refine and that tend to occur in the same ore deposits. The cutbacks have sent shock waves through the electronics industry and could force design changes in the near future.

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

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