    On Will FT-900 Bring about the "next 9/11" in April, 2014? What is Jeff Opdyke talking about?

    On "Heads you live, Tails you die" Diagnostics Stock Pitched by Alex Daley
    NSPH might be bottoming, and the tout has been recently updated. Hard to say whether the potential outweighs some of the risks still evident in the recent (07May) financials and MD&A. Associated conference call did name a competitor, BioFire Diagnostics. W[...]

    On $20 Trillion of Oil in Coober Pedy?
    Is StatOil a guess because they are working in the Georgina Basin, w/ PetroFrontier and Baraka? Long ago (in investor, not geological terms), Baraka had a story about a geologist and an inland basin in Africa, that was thought to be similar to one in the v[...]
