OXIS Consumer Products

We had to do something to slow down the process of aging! Will penny stocks do the trick?
OXIS International, Inc. is engaged in the research, development and sale of products that counteract the harmful effects of “oxidative stress.”
OXIS’ consumer products strategy addresses very important health concerns including aging and age-related disorders that are increasing with trends in US demographics.  These concerns include:
  • Brain health
  • Immunity against diseases
  • Anti-aging/skin health
  • Inflammation
  • Detoxification
  • Blood sugar regulation
Ergothioneine (ERGO) is a very powerful, multifaceted antioxidant such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C and glutathione.
Here are the two products that OXIS plan on launching during summer 2010
  • “Ergo-Pur™”  - ERGO-Pur is a pure form of our highly potent multifaceted antioxidant which we anticipate will be used in some cases in concert with:
  • “Ergo-Plex™” – ERGO-Plex is a combination of ERGO plus other functional nutraceutical ingredients directed at Joint Health.
Other products are being evaluated and include a line of skin care products. In addition we will develop other nutraceuticals and functional foods such as nutrition bars, energy beverages and single serve shots that lend themselves to traditional retail distribution

PUMA 917 goes 8-bit

PUMA is out with “Puma 917” printed by vibrant 8-bit patterns like to what a normal NES games that we have known. The meaning of playfulness with a new pack of 917 inspired by classic platform video games has been revived and the good old days of platform games from the 80s have been resuscitated.

Instead of your regular smooth leather upper in evenly colored strips, the new PUMA 917 has a sketchy quality to it with a printed fabric upper featuring brick prints reminiscent of Super Mario’s ultra-flat but ultra-awesome landscape. If Mario was not just a fictional character, I can assure you that these pair of shoes would have been his choice to stomp those tortoises :)

Hawks Nest Continued …

Hawk Nest1

Well it’s official! We do have some kind of hawk on the nest! These are not the best pictures but this old dead scraggly tree is quite a ways out in the field. Even with my kick-ass Canon Rebel camera and the 55x250 lens - I still don’t have enough zoom power! Are we photographers ever really happy with the amount of zoom we have? I’m beginning to think not. lol.

Hawk Nest2

The temp gadget on my rearview mirror in my truck was reading 101. This poor bird!! You gotta feel sorry for her! Not a speck of shade anywhere.

Hawk Nest5

Looks like she needed to adjust a little here. I have no clue if the eggs have hatched yet or not. Would love to be lucky enough to see a couple of babies next time I go by.

Hawk On A Nest or Not?

Hawks Nest 060

There’s a couple of dead trees along this area of Kansas Settlement Road. I’m always on the lookout for them because I’ve seen this one lone nest in this dead tree for a long time. I was pretty sure it was a hawks nest at one time but not positive. I’ve often wondered if I’d be lucky enough to see a hawk nesting on it. I drove past it on my way home from Willcox without really looking at it but out of the corner of my eye a little spot in the nest caught my attention. I kept on going since I had already passed it. But WHAT was that little spot? Am I missing the opportunity to see a hawk on this nest? I couldn’t stand it anymore so I turned the truck around and went a mile back. I’m in flip-flops and there’s mesquites all along this road. Those nasty things are full of thorns and they hurt when they grab a hold of you. There’s also a barbed wire fence I wont be able to sneak over with flip-flops on. and oh yeah, lets not forget about the rattle snakes! As soon as I opened the truck door and looked down there was a 4 foot long snake skin there! Gotta keep an eye out on those boogers too! Ok, so I start taking pictures and I’m still not sure what I’m seeing in the nest  … It’s just too far out there for me to tell and I was purposely making a racket to see if I could get any movement on the nest. Much to my dismay, it never moved once. I had myself convinced it was just a piece of wood sticking out but I continued to take a bunch of pictures anyways. You know, just in case.  ;)

Hawk on nest

I Got home and downloaded them to the computer. I swear I think I’m seeing a hawks tail end there! I can’t believe my eyes! I’ll leave it up to you though … what do you think? Is this a hawks rump or do you think it’s something else? Hopefully I’ll get to see activity on the nest next time I’m going back to Willcox.

iPad.. iPed?

The “iPad” finally goes on sale in Japan. The TV news has been covering its launch as well as another product on sale in nearby China: the iPed. As usual and as expected,  the iPed comes packaged in a box that looks like the iPod.

While it is slightly heavier than the iPad, the device is powered by an Intel chip and runs on Google's open source operating system Android. But like the iPad, it is a multi-media device. The price is approximately US$105 while the Apple iPad is priced  $536. The Japanese television reporters note that in China popular electronics are copied quickly. And China is getting better and better at it.

Taken with a Canon EOS Rebel XSi


email 50 percent

Ten years ago I dug a little clump of lilac out of what was then my parents yard. Dad has since passed away and the home has been sold. I’ve babied this thing but almost lost it several times over the years. It was still in a sad state of affairs when I dug it up yet again and brought it here to Arizona when we relocated. It was not a happy camper and didn’t like this Arizona heat. The bush (not much more than a few twigs really) took forever to snap out of it’s stupor. This year, for unknown reasons, it shot up and doubled in size. Standing 4 foot tall now. This spring it surprised me again and bloomed. It’s the first time I’ve seen it in full bloom. It was worth all the struggle and long wait.  :)
