http://pennyomega.com/img/nhpr.jpg National Health Partners, Inc. (OTC:NHPR)

Prices for medical services have been rising faster than prices of other goods and services for as long as anyone can remember. A primary reason why health care costs are soaring is that most of the time when we enter the medical marketplace as patients, we are spending someone else's money. Economic studies and common sense confirm that we are less likely to be prudent, careful shoppers if someone else is paying the bill. When we are paying our own medical bills, we are conservative consumers. The increase in spending has occurred because someone else is paying the bill.

National Health Partners, Inc. is a national healthcare savings organization that provides discount healthcare membership programs to uninsured and underinsured people through a national healthcare savings network called "CARExpress." CARExpress is one of the largest networks of hospitals, doctors, dentists, pharmacists and other healthcare providers in the country and is comprised of over 1,000,000 medical professionals that belong to such PPOs as CareMark and Aetna.

Energy Recovery Inc (Nasdaq:ERII), a leader in the design and development of energy recovery devices for desalination and industrial processes, announced the results of its second quarter ended June 30, 2011. ERI achieved net revenue of $6.6 million for the quarter, reflecting a 50% decrease over the same period last year. The revenue decline was caused by decreased shipments of PX devices, turbochargers and pumps, and to a lesser extent, parts and services associated with aftermarket sales. Sales of PX devices and related products and services accounted for approximately 46% of our revenue compared to 69% in the second quarter of 2010, while turbochargers and pumps comprised approximately 54% of our revenue compared to 31% in the same quarter of the prior year. The shift in product mix favoring turbochargers and pumps, along with increased underutilization of our manufacturing facilities, resulted in decreased gross margin of 35% compared to 50% in the second quarter of 2010.

Energy Recovery, Inc. engages in the development, manufacture, and sale of energy recovery devices and pumps primarily for use in seawater and brackish water desalination worldwide.
