Sacramento, CA (MMD Newswire) January 11, 2013 -- The CBS Channel 47 Fresno area news story (January 9, 2013) claiming that, "Fresno police are busting pawn shops allegedly buying stolen gold. The Fresno Gold Stop was one of three pawn shops busted on Tuesday", was in error according to the records of the California Department of Justice. The Gold Stop is not a pawn shop but rather a secondhand dealer. In several instances, incorrect references were made by various news organizations that called the affected businesses pawn shops rather than secondhand dealers, according to the California Pawnbrokers Association (CAPA).
"These businesses were not licensed pawn shops," said CAPA President Elect Tony De Marco. Illegal gold buyers are typically unlicensed and do not follow the stringent state and local laws with respect to the reporting, holding, and capturing of customer information. Licensed pawn shops are financial institutions that fall under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice and are held to rigid standards of practice under state "Business and Professions" and "Financial" codes. According to De Marco, "Licensed pawn shops report all transactions to local law enforcement, follow all holding requirements, and, as is required by law, capture detailed identification of each pledger." Pawn shops file this information with local law enforcement agencies on a daily basis.
CAPA led the initiative to pass the recent "Statewide Digital Database" bill, AB 391 that was signed into law by the Gov. Jerry Brown. This bill, under the direction of the Department of Justice, will make it possible for law enforcement to quickly and decisively track tangible personal property transactions.
As the association for California's pawn industry, CAPA is dedicated to promoting the highest standards of professional conduct to the public and cooperation with law enforcement at all levels. CAPA applauds Fresno Police Department for their vigilance in shutting down the illegal gold buying businesses in their jurisdiction.
For more information about CAPA, visit www.CaliforniaPawnbrokers.org.
California Pawnbrokers Association (CAPA) is an association of pawnbrokers and secondhand dealers and is the only one of its kind in California. CAPA's members strive to maintain the highest level of ethical conduct by following established best practices and adhering to federal, state and local laws and regulations. Since its founding in 1956, we have served the interests of tens of thousands of responsible pawnbrokers and secondhand dealers. The association serves its membership through legislative advocacy, professional education, industry programs and legal resources. Our members strive to be valued and respected by their communities by taking part in community outreach programs, as well as encouraging and fostering good relationships with law enforcement, state legislators, local government and community leaders.

Phoenix, Arizona (MMD Newswire) January 14, 2013 -- Life Line Screening, the nation's leading provider of community-based health screenings, has partnered with Genius Avenue, experts in the engagement, enrollment and empowerment of employees, to provide payroll-deducted administration of health screening benefits in the employer group marketplace. Until now, Life Line Screening has been primarily available only as a direct-to-consumer benefit.
Life Line Screening is available to employer groups on a national basis and will be offered through the employee benefits brokerage community. Genius Avenue will provide enrollment and administration services to Life Line Screening to make it easy for employers to offer screenings on a payroll-deducted basis. According to Ben Rozum, president of Genius Avenue, "Life Line Screening is a trusted name that offers life-saving preventive care service. Our partnership will offer a unique benefit for employer groups, and brokers will feel confident recommending Life Line Screening to their clients."
Employers can choose to pay for all or part of their employees' cost or they can offer Life Line Screening packages on a voluntary basis. Additionally, employers may offer a scheduled on-site screening at their location for employees participating.
With Life Line Screening, employers can reduce future health care costs and motivate employees to make healthier lifestyle decisions. Life Line Screening's mission is to make employees more aware of unrecognized health problems, such as vascular disease, and encourage them to seek follow-up care with their personal physician. Vascular diseaseoften times represents the most costly condition to cover for any employer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year nearly 800,000 Americans experience a new or recurrent stroke, which is the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States. Research shows starting at age 40, an individual's risk for vascular disease and catastrophic events such as a stroke doubles every five years due to a number of risk factors which can be easily detected and treated before costly events occur.
Offering Life Line Screening as an employee benefit is a great way for benefit brokers and consultants to diversify and provide unique solutions to their clients. For more information on offering Life Line Screening as an employee benefit, please contact your insurance broker.

AUSTIN, TX (MMD Newswire) January 15, 2013 -- Buyer Group International, Inc. (BYRG.PK) ("BYRG" or the "Company") today announced its 2013 General Business Development Plan for 2013.
"The more we at Buyer Group International look at 2013, the more you can see that we have a clear slate on which we can write big things," said BYRG CEO Dave Bryant. "We have three fronts of mining development now. Greenland, Indonesia, and British Columbia." he recently said. "As we execute on our plan, improved compliance, better transparency, the vision we have laid out will start to unfold."
"Our Indonesian project is proceeding nicely and we hope to have more news on this shortly. We are exploring several opportunities there in earth metals and in noble metals. We have received a letter of interest from the local chamber of commerce and have a clear path of development before us." In British Columbia, we have several very solid prospects, currently requiring financing, where we have entered into negotiations to purchase and develop these prospects. Finally, Greenland, the last vast untapped northern remote island, has enormous promise and we are working on developing this prospect. We have seen very promising results and we have only tipped the iceberg." he was quited as saying in a recent interview.
"With these prospects, BYRG's goals are to execute in the very near term a business development program centered around increasing holdings and production of mineral reserves for both long term management and short term development and production that can be sold on the current market. This means bringing funding to bear on minerals that have immediate value, and bringing partnerships to those that have long term value. As various types of minerals are coming into play we want to maximize development for minerals reaching their market peak in value. Then we want to bank or hold long term those that have yet to reach their peak and may be several years away from doing so." said David A. Bryant, CEO of BYRG.
BYRG and its advisors believe that strategic development of mineral rich lands will give the shareholders the best long term returns of any industry including government and municipal investment. BYRG is tailoring a specific financial reward system for its long term shareholders.
Completion of the proposed transactions are dependent upon important contingencies, including BYRG obtaining financing and guarantees, of which there is no assurance.

In addition to the hardware and software delivery and installation, Kairos personnel provided training to range personnel that will enable them to remotely operate the vehicles and maintain the radio and control station infrastructure for future missions. Kairos will complete phases two and three in the first half of 2013, and will continue releasing its Pronto4 Robotic Appliqué Kits to other ranges throughout the United States.
"As we demonstrated at Airburst Range, give us a small budget and a few days, and we can provide any range with the ability to operate and maintain unmanned ground or surface targets," said Chandler Griffin, Director of Targets Programs at Kairos Autonomi. "Our effort with the National Guard Bureau shows our capability as a company to stand up existing ranges with solid infrastructure, robots and operational training in a short period of time."
The Pronto4 Robotic Appliqué Kit can be installed in about 4 hours by a trained team of two technicians. For each NGB range, the Pronto4 enables an unmanned vehicle to drive by remote control operation in conjunction with communications infrastructure. The Pronto4 can also be upgraded to provide GPS path following capability.
The Pronto4 enables existing vehicles or surface vessels to be utilized as realistic, unmanned moving ground targets as part of training and test operations. Kairos supports a broad training range customer base and continues to develop cost-effective, high-quality hardware and software products for training range customers worldwide.

Venice, CA (MMD Newswire) January 8, 2013 -- Venice and Camarillo, California based clean energy startup Nitro-Turbodyne, Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement with GSM Energy Solutions of Calgary, Alberta, Canada to distribute next generation power generators throughout Canada and the Bakken Oil Fields in the northern portions of the United States. Nitro-Turbodyne will supply an initial order to GSM of 150 units for remote instrumentation power generation, labeled the RIPGU. Leveraging new technology to produce power leveraging renewable Liquid Nitrogen (LN2), each unit provides maintenance-free electrical power for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and telemetry systems for natural gas and oil wells.
"These units are a significant advance in remote power generation with extremely long reliability and zero carbon emissions," stated Miles Molstad, Director for Calgary-based GSM Energy Solutions, "These products provide significant cost savings and solve multiple issues for remote oil field power generation."
The contract, valued at over $1m Canadian over 2 years, is the first Canadian contract received by Nitro-Turbodyne for its revolutionary turbine-powered electrical generator. The unit leverages patented Micro Flash-Expansion Turbine (MFET) technology to produce clean, renewable and maintenance-free power in any environment and any weather.
"We successfully demonstrated the RIPGU to over 80 companies at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary this past June," stated Ed De Reyes, the Chief Technology Officer for Nitro-Turbodyne. "We are very pleased to be working with GSM to introduce our units to the Canadian oil industry. GSM Energy Solutions is the perfect partner to provide this technology throughout the region."
De Reyes went on to explain that that gas and oil well operators were searching for alternatives to solar and wind power production - especially in harsh Arctic environments - where the extremes of weather prevent the widespread use of those technologies. Several well operators had turned to thermoelectric generators ("TEGs"); however because TEGs use combustible gas and open flames to produce electricity, they tended to be unreliable and dangerous should a gas well develop a leak.
The RIPGU's are designed to solve several problems for oil well operators including reliability, costs and safety. With only 1 moving part the unit's are designed to run continuously for 20 years. Additionally, the units work without combustion providing safety for uses near oil production facilities. Since December, Nitro-Turbodyne has booked over $2 million in orders for the years 2013 and 2014.
LOS ANGELES, CALI. (MMD Newswire) January 8, 2013 -- In response to Newsweek magazines complete transition to an all-digital publication, Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) announces that Los Angeles artists Ryan McIntosh and XVALA will continue the print and subscription of Newsweek for 2013.
"Death of Print: The Last Print Edition", a bimonthly print of 'Newsweek covers' capturing time-stamped events throughout 2013, was conceived by the two artists upon announcement from Newsweek editor Tina Brown of their decision to discontinue print media for their internationally acclaimed publication that had been in print since 1933.
"Newsweek removes themselves and their reported content from being 'written in stone'," said Cory Allen. "It's going forward in reverse. In the digital realm, Newsweek will have the luxury to manipulate their original content to better serve future ratings."
AIS Editions, located in the Brewery Arts Complex in Los Angeles and owned by McIntosh, will print and distribute a new issue of the 'Newsweek prints' on the 1st and 15th of every month. "Preservation of the printed medium for future generations is of vital importance," said McIntosh.
The 18" x 24" prints are individually handmade with selected content based on newsworthy topics that the artists feel are significant to publish; maintaining the thematic presence that Newsweek has attained with their past issues. The artists have gone as far as employing several members of the paparazzi and selected hackers to help acquire exclusive images and information to remain competitive with TIME, Wired, People, and other major magazines.
"People like information to be physical. They want to be smacked in the face by news," said XVALA. "I can't tell the difference between what's real or virtual. All news is just a picture you've never seen before."
Currently, the prints can only be purchased online; however, Cory Allen is working with several vendors and distributors to have the prints made available in local stores across the United States, alongside their competitor's issues. "We are aiming to make these prints easily accessible before this summer and I feel we are making progress," said Cory Allen.
The "Death of Print: The Last Print Edition" will be made available to the public at www.newsweekprints.com, where individuals may purchase individual issues or a full-year subscription.

New Stem Cell Biobank Partnership to Accelerate Drug Discovery
Coralville, IA (MMD Newswire) January 8, 2013 -- Cellular Engineering Technologies Inc. (CET), a stem cell biotech company, and the non-profit John Paul II Medical Research Institute (JP2MRI) announce a partnership to develop a private stem cell biobank. CET, a biomanufacturer of human stem cells, is collaborating with the JP2MRI to create over 5,000 patient and disease-specific stem cell lines and other human cell lines to advance drug discovery, offer personalized medicine, and biomanufacturing. These cell lines are derived from adult sources and do not include embryonic stem cells.
A stem cell biobank will help overcome the greatest obstacle to offering personalized medicine and will accelerate the search for effective treatments. It will do so by enabling drug testing on patient specific stem cells, in contrast to the currently used models involving animal testing and clinical trials that are vastly more expensive and time consuming. The biobank stem cell lines will serve as models to better predict the outcome of drug therapy in patients and dramatically advance research to bring new treatments to market sooner and at less cost. The need to create a stem cell biobank of human somatic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, and other critical human cell lines is underscored by some sobering statistics. The annual rate of FDA-approved drugs has declined while the research and development cost has significantly increased. The cost of bringing a drug to market is currently more than one billion dollars and takes over ten years. A new heart drug has a 20 percent chance of succeeding in a clinical trial and a new cancer drug has only an 8 percent chance of succeeding.
CET manufactures a variety of human somatic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, cancer cells, and specialized tissue culture media to grow and differentiate stem cells. CET has also introduced its contract manufacturing service to develop IPS cell lines for scientists. IPS cells are unique stem cells that are created by genetically reprogramming a patient's own cell into very primitive pluripotent stem cells that can differentiate into more than 200 specialized cells. Dr. Alan Moy, CEO and Co-Founder of CET said, "The collaboration with the JP2MRI will allow CET to provide scientists with the tools to accelerate drug discovery and advance personalized medicine."
The CET and JP2MRI partnership will eliminate the barriers that typically impact government and academic biobanks because stem cell donations will come directly from patients recruited from private practice doctors and private hospitals. Jay Kamath, CEO of the JP2MRI, commented, "The Institute has launched its Give Cures program that has created a network of doctors in several private clinics and hospitals around the country to recruit patients to procure tissue to create the stem cell lines. The program is currently recruiting patients with genetic diseases, cancer, and disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease so that industry, government, and academia can be more productive in their drug discovery efforts."
Doctors and patients are invited to visit the JP2MRI website (www.jp2mri.org) and sign-up on the Clinical Provider Registry or Patient Registry. Everyone is invited to share the Give Cures flyer (www.givecures.org) so more people will know how they can advance the adult stem cell research mission of JP2MRI.
About Cellular Engineering Technologies, Inc.
CET is a stem cell biotech company co-founded by Dr. Alan Moy and whose mission is to fundamentally transform patient therapy by making drug discovery and the biomanufacturing process quicker, less expensive, more personalized, innovative, and regenerative through the use of human cells. CET's manufacturing facility is located in Coralville, IA.
About the John Paul II Medical Research Institute.
The John Paul II Medical Research Institute (JP2MRI) is a non-profit research institute whose mission is to advance ethical medical research and education with human somatic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells. The Institute's goal is to reduce the barriers of translating basic research into clinical research. This is accomplished by coordinating research activities between the Institute, academia, and industry to find treatment solutions for patients that could benefit from adult stem cell therapy. The Institute is located in Iowa City, IA.
