Anheuser-Busch Orders 40 Tesla Electric Semi Trucks


Tesla’s Largest Order To Date

Anheuser-Busch has reserved 40 of Tesla Inc.’s all-electric Semi trucks as it seeks to reduce fuel costs and vehicle emissions, the brewing giant announced Thursday.

5a2944b5f2c1b.image.jpgThis could the biggest order Tesla has received for its electric trucks, which are scheduled for rollout in 2019.

 The St. Louis-based subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev plans to use the trucks for shipments to wholesalers within 150 to 200 miles of its brewery locations — well within the 500-mile range that was promised by Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk. The trucks will be fully electric-powered and equipped with autonomous driving capabilities.

 “At Anheuser-Busch, we are constantly seeking new ways to make our supply chain more sustainable, efficient, and innovative,” James Sembrot, A-B’s senior director of logistics strategy, said in a statement. “This investment in Tesla semi-trucks helps us achieve these goals while improving road safety and lowering our environmental impact.”

5a2944b4e4217.imageLast month, Tesla received orders for its electric trucks from high profile companies such as Walmart and fleet operator J.B. Hunt.

Germany-based Deutsche Post AG’s DHL and Fortigo Freight Services Inc., one of Canada’s largest fleet management companies, also pre-ordered Tesla’s electric trucks last month to test on limited routes. Anheuser-Busch and Tesla were not immediately available for comment.

CES (OTC: CESX $1.10) goes public, putting Pasco on the map


CES goes public, putting Pasco on the map

Will take over former bank branch on Fifth Avenue

Cross environmental services logo

It’s not very often Pasco County can brag about being the home of a public company. But in less than a week, Zephyrhills will get that honor when CES Synergies begins trading over-the-counter under the symbol “CESX.”

It’s an effort that is expected to raise millions of dollars for the full-service environmental, demolition and mold remediation company, creating potentially thousands of jobs across the country. And even better for Zephyrhills, CES also plans to move the core of its operations from nearby Crystal Springs right into the city’s growing downtown district. The company plans to open offices in the upper floors of the former Wachovia Bank building on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Seventh Street, right in the heart of proposed road upgrades by the Florida Department of Transportation.


Jeff Chartier, president of Strategic Capital Markets, and a member of the CES Synergies board of directors, shares why he feels people should invest in the Crystal Springs company on the public market.

“This gives the chance for local people who know the company to actually enjoy the fruits of it going public,” said Jeff Chartier, president of Strategic Capital Markets of North Miami Beach, who is now a member of the CES board of directors. “They have a chance to own part of the company, and join us as we’re poised to go on the bigger market,” like the Nasdaq exchange.

Chartier presented the new public company to an audience of potential investors last week at Manolo’s Ristorante Italiano in Zephyrhills. There, Chartier offered shares at $1 each — as long as buyers were ready to gobble them up in blocks of 15,000.

Traditionally, companies would hit the stock market through an initial public offering, similar to what Twitter did earlier this month when it closed on its first day at $44.90 a share, and raising $31 billion.

Taking that approach is very expensive and time-consuming, and could take longer than the year CES needed to go public. Instead, CES took a different approach, called a reverse merger. It found a public shell company — basically a company with no remaining assets — and purchased it.

It’s similar to buying a house. The infrastructure is already there for electricity, water and cable, just as the shell company had everything in place to operate as a public company.

Chartier discovered CES nearly by accident. While he’s always looking for businesses that could potentially be good public company candidates, Chartier said he didn’t even have CES on his radar until he met owner Al Biston. When he finally did, Chartier liked what he saw.

“There’s 140 years of experience with management alone,” Chartier said. “We feel that a lot of institutional funds will be very attracted to this company,” thus potentially boosting the stock price in the near future.

Becoming a public company is a completely new world for CES, which has operated 35 years doing business in private, starting originally as Cross Environmental Services. Now everything from its financial records to major personnel changes are part of the public record through the SEC, necessary so investors have a complete picture before buying in.

According to its initial filings, CES has a little more than 140 employees, had revenue of $6.8 million over the last six months — generating a loss of a little more than $363,000 — but the company also has a backlog of projects worth more than $9 million. Its clients include federal agencies like NASA, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Air Force, as well as industrial and commercial companies like Publix, Cemex, and Jones Lang LaSalle.

Local governments that work with CES include the University of South Florida and the Florida Department of Transportation.

This same time last year, CES turned a profit of $1.3 million on revenue of $9.7 million.

Money raised through this stock offering will fuel expansion for CES, primarily in the acquisition of other smaller companies like it around the country, to help broaden its client base. Although the jobs created through that growth will be outside Pasco and Hillsborough counties, the success will filter its way back into the area —especially for local investors if the stock value rises, as Chartier expects.

Biston and two other business partners purchased the former Wachovia Bank building on Fifth Avenue in 2009 for $550,000. They later offered the building to the city for $855,000 as a possible new library before council members decided to expand the library at its current site.

Biston told The Laker/Lutz News that he had bought out his other partners on the building recently, and is now the sole owner. He plans to use the upper floors, and lease out the bottom floor for a storefront business, possibly an eatery.

“He’s a one-man show. He is economic development, and obviously a very successful man,” City Councilman Kenneth Compton said of Biston. Compton was at the presentation Thursday night with fellow councilman Charlie Proctor.

“I think we all have a mutually beneficial relationship,” he said. “Zephyrhills has benefitted from a competitive businessman. It’s a very big day for Zephyrhills, and it’s a big day for Pasco County.”

Here’s some interesting highlights!

Application to stock exchange

The Company is in the process of applying to the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) which would allow the Company to be listed on the NYSE-Amex exchange. The Company believes being listed on the NYSE will assist it in attracting the capital needed to support its operations.

Clinic expansion

The Company is seeking to significantly increase its capacity at its in-patient treatment facility from 36 beds to 200 beds over the next twenty four months.

Awarded an exclusive regional contract

The Company was awarded an exclusive contract to provide treatment services for a major regional government organization with regards to post traumatic stress disorder. The Company plans to open a second facility in order to service this contact.

Revenue

During the three months ended March 31, 2013, revenues increased to $ 1,444,267, from $ 1,257,411 during the three months ended March 31, 2012, an increase of $186,856. (+13%) This increase is mainly attributable to a steady increase in business volume since the Company began operations. Revenue from the endoscopy practice was $521,165, compared to revenue of $436,804 during the three months ended March 31, 2012, an increase of $84,361.

The Company believes that revenue will continue to grow steadily and the Company will become more profitable as most of its costs, such as rent and salaries and wages are relatively fixed, and therefore will reduce as a percentage as business volume grows.

Gross Profit

During the three months ended March 31, 2013, gross profits increased to $1,151,175, from $1,006,233 during the three months ended March 31, 2012, an increase of $144,942. This increase is mainly attributable to an increase in business volume since the Company began operations.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012, were $1,527,307, compared to $1,276,075 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, an increase of $251,232. This increase in expenses is mainly attributable to increased operations. Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2013, primarily consisted of salaries and wages to medical support staff of $818,881; rent payments of $250,169; professional fees of $100,771; management fees of $49,595; and general and administrative expenses of $149,799.

This increase is attributable to the steady increase in revenues and business operations. Going forward, the Company will no longer be incurring certain costs that are considered one-time costs associated with starting a business.

Space Mountain reopens at Disneyland


https://i1.wp.com/i843.photobucket.com/albums/zz352/loaloauk/DLP%20that%20never%20was/SpaceMountain1280.jpg:original

 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – One of Disneyland’s most popular rides has reopened after the company declined to appeal a workplace safety case.

The Orange County Register reports Space Mountain reopened Friday evening.

The attraction was closed in April after state officials said safety rules were violated when a contractor fell and suffered broken bones while cleaning Space Mountain’s slanted roof.

https://i1.wp.com/dlr1.wdpromedia.com/media/dlr_nextgen/MediaPlayer/attractions/detail/alt/space-mountain_alt.jpg

The contract company was fined nearly $61,000 for the safety violations. The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health proposed a nearly $235,000 penalty against Disney in connection with the contractor’s injury.

Disney did not appeal by Friday’s deadline.

Disney closed two other rides – the Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland and Soarin’ Over California in Disney California Adventure – to evaluate the safety of employees who maintain them.

Both attractions have reopened.

Fly sized robot takes first flight!


https://i2.wp.com/blogs.bu.edu/bioaerial2012/files/2012/10/Woods-Robot-Fly.jpg

World’s smallest robot, Robobee, has wingspan of three centimetres

The smallest flying robot in the world has completed its maiden flight in a US laboratory.

The tiny machine, named RoboBee, took off, hovered and performed basic manoeuvres, to the delight of scientists at Harvard University.

Inspired by the common fly, the carbon fibre robot has a wingspan of three centimetres and weighs less than a tenth of a gram.

Flies are among the most agile flying creatures on Earth. The robot mimics their airborne abilities by tweaking the movement of two wafer-thin wings that flap at 120 times a second.

More advanced versions of the robot may help with search and rescue missions, monitor the environment, and even assist with crop pollination, its developers claim.

“I want to create something the world has never seen before,” said Kevin Ma, a researcher on the team.

The robot’s two wings are powered separately by tiny pieces of ceramic piezoelectric material, which expand and contract rapidly when wired to an alternating voltage.

For the maiden flight, researchers attached tiny reflective patches to the robot that could be picked up by eight infrared cameras mounted around the room. The cameras worked out where the robot was, and in which direction it was facing, and sent the information to a controlling computer that sent movement commands to the machine over a wire tether. To move left, for example, the robot increased the stroke of its right wing.

The robot was hooked up to an electrical supply because there are no batteries small or light enough to be carried by the machine.

The scientists described how they built the robot in the US journal, Science. “No such vehicle has been demonstrated to date because of the severe miniaturisation challenges that must be overcome for an insect-sized device,” they wrote.

After the first tentative flight, the researchers aim to put the robot through its paces, with more aggressive maneuvers and landings.

$70.6 Million Per Seat Price Tag To Space


Frequent Flier Miles Not Accepted

aaasaleNASA is paying $424 million more to Russia to get U.S. astronauts into space, and the agency’s leader is blaming Congress for the extra expense.

NASA announced its latest contract with the Russian Space Agency on Tuesday. The $424 million represents flights to and from the International Space Station aboard Russian Soyuz spacecraft, as well as training, for six astronauts in 2016 and the first half of 2017.

That’s $70.6 million per seat — well above the previous price tag of about $65 million.

https://i2.wp.com/spacefellowship.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/supplyship.jpgRussia currently provides the only means of getting people to and from the space station, and its ticket prices have soared with each new contract.

Several U.S. companies are working on rockets and spacecraft to launch Americans from U.S. soil. But that’s still a few years away. The ability to launch crews into orbit from America ended with NASA’s shuttle program in 2011. Even before the shuttles retired, the U.S. had been relying on Russia to transport long-term residents to the space station.

https://i0.wp.com/s1.ibtimes.com/sites/www.ibtimes.com/files/styles/picture_this/public/2011/08/25/150549-russian-spacecraft-crashed.jpgNASA Administrator Charles Bolden said if Congress had approved the space agency’s request for more funding for its commercial space effort, the latest contract would have been unnecessary. He is urging full funding of the Obama administration’s 2014 budget request of $821 million for the commercial crew program.

“Because the funding for the President’s plan has been significantly reduced, we now won’t be able to support American launches until 2017,” Bolden, a former shuttle commander, wrote in a NASA blog.

It could take longer if Congress does not fully support the 2014 request, he said.

“Further delays in our Commercial Crew Program and its impact on our human spaceflight program are unacceptable,” Bolden said.

The California-based Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, already is making cargo shipments to the space station. Its founder and chief designer, billionaire Elon Musk, previously has said his company could be ferrying astronauts aboard beefed-up versions of its Dragon capsules by 2015.

Orbital Sciences Corp. of Virginia completed a successful test launch 1½ weeks ago. It plans to start sending supplies to the space station this summer, but has no interest in carrying passengers.

The six seats included in the latest Russian contract covers not only Americans, but European, Canadian or Japanese astronauts under barter agreements between NASA and those countries.

Virgin Galactic Spaceship fly’s on it’s own for the first time


SpaceShipTwo Makes it’s First Powered Flight

ss2 1The spaceplane being developed by UK billionaire Sir Richard Branson has made its first powered flight.

The vehicle was dropped from a carrier aircraft high above California’s Mojave Desert and ignited its rocket engine to go supersonic for a few seconds.

Sir Richard’s intention is to use the spaceship to carry fare-paying passengers on short pleasure rides above the Earth’s atmosphere.

ss2-glideflight3His company Virgin Galactic has already taken hundreds of deposits.

The rocket vehicle is known as SpaceShipTwo (SS2).

Although it has been in the air on more than 20 occasions, this was the first time its hybrid motor had been ignited.

It was only a short burn lasting about 16 seconds, but it propelled SS2 beyond the sound barrier to a speed of Mach 1.2. Future outings should see progressively longer burn durations, enabling the plane eventually to reach sufficient velocity to climb more than 100km into the sky.

Space target

ss2 3.jpgMonday’s mission began at the Mojave Air and Space Port at just after 07:00 local time (14:00 GMT). Test pilots Mark Stucky and Mike Alsbury were reported to be at the controls of SS2.

It took off slung beneath the WhiteKnightTwo aircraft, which does the job of lifting the rocket plane to its launch altitude – some 45,000ft (14km).

ss2 4A little under an hour later, SpaceShipTwo was released, dropped a short distance to get clear of WhiteKnightTwo and then lit its engine, which burns a combination of a solid rubber compound and liquid nitrous oxide.

SpaceShipTwo ignites its engine in flight for the first time

After shutting down its motor, the vehicle then glided back to the Mojave runway, touching down just after 08:00 local time.

Sir Richard said in a statement: “For the first time, we were able to prove the key components of the system, fully integrated and in flight. Today’s supersonic success opens the way for a rapid expansion of the spaceship’s powered flight envelope, with a very realistic goal of full space flight by the year’s end.”

Family first

ss2 4.JPGThe entrepreneur is reluctant these days to say precisely when SpaceShipTwo will enter commercial service.

Projections for a start date issued in the early days of the project in the mid-2000s have long since passed as engineers have grappled with the complexities of developing the world’s first spaceliner.

The delay appears not to have dissuaded prospective passengers, however.

ss2 5More than 500 people, including celebrities such as physicist Stephen Hawking and former Dallas actress Victoria Principal, have put down a deposit for a ticket that will cost them about $200,000.

The initial service will be run out of a purpose built facility in the New Mexico desert known Spaceport America. Each flight will accommodate two pilots and six passengers.

Sir Richard says he will take his family on one of the first outings to demonstrate his faith in the vehicle’s safety.

Burgeoning enterprise

ss2 6.jpgThe rocket plane itself is a derivative of SpaceShipOne, which became the first private manned vehicle to fly to the edge of space and back in 2004.

It was the brainchild of aviation pioneer Burt Rutan, whose Mojave company, Scaled Composites, then designed the current prototype passenger version for Sir Richard.

The pair formed The Spaceship Company to manufacture future vehicles.

There are other companies hoping to offer sub-orbital flights in the near future.

XCOR Aerospace, which also has an operation in Mojave, is developing a smaller rocket plane called Lynx. This would carry one pilot and one ticketed passenger to 100km.

Neither it nor SS2 can achieve the speeds needed to go into orbit.

New High Tech $100 Bill


 Benjamin Franklin On The Face For The Fourth Revision Of The New $100 Bill

100-dollar-bills-misprinted.si_After a three-year delay due to slower-than-expected production, Americans will finally have an improved, high-tech $100 bill for their wallets, the Federal Reserve said Wednesday.

 The bill is set to debut on Oct. 8.

What’s so special about the new greenback? To start, the Fed says the the bill is a culmination of a decade-long research and design process.

100-dollar-bills-780x439The note features a series of amped-up security measures aimed at combating counterfeiters, including a blue, 3-D security ribbon on the front of the bill that moves when the note is tilted back and forth and side to side.

The inkwell and bell on the front of the bill and the number 100 on the right-hand corner also change from copper to green when the note is tilted.

This is the fourth time the $100 bill has been redesigned, according to a Fed spokeswoman. It has been revamped three times in the last 20 years alone, as the Fed had to react more often to improved counterfeiting technology.
