Back to HOCKEY Night in Canada

i haven't been this happy since i got the "my little pony" dream castle for christmas 1985. seriously- i know lots of people are still angry about this lockout - still angry that people we work for could have done this to us and created a huge crisis in public broadcasting in the meantime. but i'm too happy to be angry anymore. i get to go back to work. that's all that really matters. it will be tough to start from square one - and especially to fill holes left by people who have, well, left! but i'm willing to give it a try. i'm also willing to work harder to make sure that we create a product worth protecting. what i'm not willing to do anymore is abuse my contract. working for free or not taking vacation time when i'm entitled. it's not going to happen. not anymore.
so the mood at the pizza meeting today was light... jovial even. everyone was just so pleased to be back... to be getting a real paycheque again... to have the stress being lifted off their shoulders. it's amazing what that can do - i'm actually so proud of my colleagues for holding it together as well as they did. it's an amazing group of people i work with. but i always knew that.
so today i was just perusing some of the contract details and it looks like there's even something in there for me (a temporary). there was a hint that if you've been filling a position for 18 months consecutively, youc could be entitled to staff status. i'll have to check the fine print, but since i've been doing my job for nearly 3 years, i may finally be able to gain job security. and plan my life. i'm turning 30 soon- i think it's time.
so this will also be my last blog entry. it's been fun. it's been a great way to get out some of my thoughts and keep some people entertained (including myself =)). so without fanfare i say goodbye to "lockout night in canada" to make way for "hockey night in canada". cue theme.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
