    3D Eye Solutions, Inc. Continues to Successfully Implement Licensing Strategy

    LONGWOOD, Fla., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- 3D Eye Solutions, Inc. (Pink Sheets: TDEY) is pleased to announce that the Company continues to implement its licensing strategy with the signing of five licenses over the last several weeks. 3D Eye Solutions has signed license agreements with companies that cover a variety of vertical markets such as film, broadcast television, video game, digital signage, and the communications industries in both North America and Europe. The Company's licensees are able to market and sell 3D Eye's proprietary 2D to 3D conversion technology to their existing contact network and customer base within their respective industries. 3D Eyes strategy is to generate additional revenue through the sale of licenses and the exclusive 2D to 3D content conversion that is included in the terms of each license agreement.

    The Company's state of the art 2D to 3D content conversion technology is compatible and can integrate its proprietary conversion process and file formats with all of the industry leading 3D display and viewing platforms, which include Magnetic 3D, Alioscopy, Samsung, LG, Texas Instruments, Panasonic, RealD, Dolby 3D, IMAX 3D, Macintosh, and PC, amongst others.

    In recent years, a combination of increasing demands for more realistic images and evolving display technology has been the catalyst for advancements in the development of 3D images and pictures for various applications, and has enabled 3D technology to be put to practical use in the cinema, gaming, cell phone and television industries. To date most 3D products have used special glasses to separate a picture into two images, one for the left eye and the other for the right eye. But the market has strongly desired a more versatile and glasses-free approach that could be used anywhere. 3D Eye Solutions content conversion can offer both with and without glasses 3D images for 3D displays.

    "The response our 3D technology has received is remarkable," stated Mike Gibilisco, CEO of 3D Eye Solutions, Inc. "Over and over again we hear positive comments about our technology's capabilities and applications. We have been able to showcase our state of the art technology at many events in 2010 and sign several licenses with key executives from various licensing companies, television and movie studios."

    SABESP Announces Agreement and Contract with the Municipality of Sao Paulo

    SAO PAULO, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Companhia de Saneamento Basico do Estado de Sao Paulo - SABESP ("Company" or "SABESP") (BM&FBOVESPA: SBSP3), pursuant to CVM Instruction 358 of January 3, 2002, hereby informs the public that, on June 22nd, 2010, its Board of Directors authorized the Executive Board to execute a "Public Water Supply and Sewage Services Contract" between the Company, the State of Sao Paulo ("State") and the Municipality of Sao Paulo ("Municipality") to assure the Company the right to provide public water supply and sewage services in the State Capital for a period of 30 (thirty) years.

    In compliance with the best corporate governance practices, the Company has shown in its financial statements (Explanatory Notes) the situation of the "Agreements with the Municipality of Sao Paulo."

    The key aspects of the Contract, which is expected to be signed in the next few days by the State, the Municipality and the Company, as well as the Agreement to be signed between the State and the Municipality with the intermediation and consent of SABESP and the Sao Paulo State Sanitation and Energy Regulatory Agency ("ARSESP"), are:

    1. The State and the Municipality assign SABESP the right to provide sanitation services to the Capital of the State of Sao Paulo, which involves the obligation to provide the services and the right to be remunerated through the receipt of tariff revenues; 2. The State and the Municipality determine ARSESP as the entity responsible for the regulatory functions, including tariffs, control and inspection of services; 3. The valuation was based on the discounted cash flow method, which took into account the economic and financial sustainability of SABESP's operations in the Metropolitan Region of Sao Paulo; 4. The cash flow included all operating costs, taxes, investments and the remuneration for the opportunity cost of SABESP's investors and creditors; 5. The investments foreseen in the Contract correspond to the minimum amount of 13% of gross revenue obtained from the provision of services in the Municipality of Sao Paulo, net of Cofins and Pasep taxes, and are already considered in the Investment Plan announced by the Company; 6. The transfer of funds to the Municipal Environmental Sanitation and Infrastructure Fund for use in actions relating to sanitation services in the State Capital, constitutes a fee to be recovered in the tariff, as determined in the Contract. This amount corresponds to 7.5% (seven point five percent) of gross revenue from the provision of services in the Municipality of Sao Paulo, net of Cofins and Pasep taxes; 7. The opportunity cost of SABESP's investors and creditors was established using the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) methodology. This figure was used as the cash flow discount rate; and 8. The Contract envisages the remuneration of the net assets in operation, calculated preferably through asset valuation or by the monetarily updated book value, to be established by ARSESP. The Contract also foresees the remuneration of the investments to be made by SABESP, such that there will be no residual value at the end of the Contract period.

    The establishment of a formal contract with the Municipality of Sao Paulo, which represents approximately 56% of the Company's total revenue, guarantees legal and asset security to SABESP, adequate return to shareholders and quality services supply to its clients.

    SABESP will publish the relevant documents in its website (http://www.sabesp.com.br/) after the Contract and the Agreement are executed.

    AGR Tools Issues Financial Statement Clarification

    AUSTIN, TX, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The management of AGR Tools, Inc. (OTCBB-AGRT) would like to advise the company's shareholders that the financial statements included in AGR's most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q are those of the AGR as of April 30, 2010, at which time it was still a shell company with nominal operations. The quarterly report does not include any financial information of AGR Stone & Tools USA, Inc. ("AGR USA"), the private operating business that AGR acquired upon the closing of the share exchange transaction on May 27, 2010.

    The audited financial statements of AGR USA for the year ended June 30, 2009 and the interim unaudited financial statements of AGR USA for the period ended March 31, 2010 can be found in AGR's amended current report on Form 8-K/A filed with the SEC on June 11, 2010. The consolidated financial information of both AGR and AGR USA will be included in AGR's next quarterly filing with the SEC for the period ended June 30, 2010.

    "We have received a number of inquiries from concerned shareholders regarding the financial statements included in our Form 10-Q, and there seems to some confusion as to why they do not show that AGR has generated any revenue. The reason is simple: the financial statements are for a quarter that ended prior to the completion of AGR's acquisition of AGR USA. As a result, we feel that we should clarify the situation," stated Rock Rutherford, the President and CEO of both AGR and AGR USA.

    Radius Gold Acquires Geothermal Energy Concessions in Guatemala

    VANCOUVER, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Radius Gold Inc. (TSX-V: RDU) is pleased to announce that it has been granted one highly prospective geothermal license in Guatemala and has applications for 6 other potential geothermal fields pending. The total area granted or under application is 200,700 hectares.

    When Radius first entered Guatemala in 2001, its successful gold exploration programs were guided in part using the presence of hot springs as an indicator of potential gold-related hydrothermal activity. On at least one occasion Radius's drill programs were halted because of large quantities of hot water and steam escaping from active drill holes, indicative of very high geothermal gradients. With the increasing global emphasis on clean, renewable power sources, Radius has revisited its hot spring database for Guatemala and staked a number of active geothermal systems that may have potential as geothermal resources for power generation.

    Power generation in Guatemala is currently comprised of hydroelectric power stations, steam turbines, gas turbines, diesel generators and geothermal power stations, with geothermal power contributing less than 3% of the total power generated. According to a recent study by the Argentine consultancy, Montamat, which evaluated electricity prices in 13 Latin American countries, prices in Guatemala are amongst the highest in Latin America at roughly $0.17/kwh, surpassed only by the Dominican Republic and Panama. At the same time, the Guatemalan government is forecasting that electric power demand is expected to reach a compounded annual growth rate over 8.0% to 2015. Guatemala must increase its installed capacity to meet the projected demand growth.

    A study published in International Geothermal Development in 2003 noted that geothermal resources in Guatemala are estimated at 800 to 4,000 megawatts (MW) capacity, but most likely around 1,000MW. In 2003 the country's installed generating capacity was 1,700MW suggesting that geothermal energy could contribute significantly to securing the country's future power requirements. By 2007, Guatemala had succeeded in harnessing 46 MW of geothermal energy in the fields of Zunil and Amatitlan, both owned by the American geothermal technology company Ormat Technologies. Feasibility studies are being carried out on 3 other geothermal fields.

    Radius intends to use its extensive knowledge of Guatemalan geology, gained from more than 10 years of mineral exploration in the country, to identify and acquire potential geothermal resources. At the same time, the Company is actively looking for potential joint venture partners with the necessary experience to investigate and develop its geothermal licenses.

    Aberdeen Research Confirms Electronic Signature Technology a Key Enabler in Achieving Cost Effective Sales Growth

    REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (OTC Bulletin Board: CICI) Communication Intelligence Corporation ("CIC") the leading supplier of electronic signature solutions for business process automation in the financial industry and the recognized leader in biometric signature verification announced today the results of a recent Aberdeen research study published by Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company. In March and April 2010, Aberdeen conducted research for a benchmark study involving 472 organizations, including 67 companies currently deploying electronic signature technology.

    "A key challenge facing businesses today is achieving cost effective sales growth in the face of a constricted economy following the 2009 recession," stated Peter Ostrow, Aberdeen Group's Research Director for Sales Effectiveness. "And recent research we conducted confirms that the users of electronic signature technology out perform non-users in key areas that significantly and positively impact the achievement of cost effective sales growth. For instance, users of electronic signatures were 50% more likely than non-users to show year over year improvements in customer renewal rates, 41% more likely to reduce proposal error rates and 18% more likely to shorten their sales cycles. The research confirmed improved results for users leveraging electronic signatures in many other key area as well."

    "As the leading supplier of electronic signature technology to the financial industry we recognize the competitive challenges that banks, insurers, brokerage firms and others in the financial industry face, most recently exacerbated by the financial market meltdown, which significantly reduce their income from investment sources," stated Guido DiGregorio, CIC's Chairman & CEO. "For years we have experienced the significant improvements that our technology delivers by enabling enterprises to achieve their revenue growth objectives cost effectively. We do that by significantly compressing the sales cycle and significantly reducing expenses associated with generating and delivering paper documents including the virtual elimination of rework due to errors and omissions.

    "In addition, revenue is increased by enhancing the customer experience and customer satisfaction which improves the acquisition and retention of customers and cross-selling efforts as well. In essence, our technology enables legal and regulatory compliant electronic transactions in 1/3rd the time and at 1/3rd the cost of paper based transactions. We are delighted to participate in this independent research, with the Aberdeen Group, and appreciate the contributions the findings make in providing such specific validation of the various and many metrics that electronic signature technology improves, resulting in the achievement of cost effective sales growth."

    American Capital Achieves Necessary Exchange Offer Participation, Extending Deadline to Allow Finalization of Conditions

    BETHESDA, Md., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Capital, Ltd. (the "Company") announced today that it has received a sufficient number of tenders to complete its private offers to exchange outstanding unsecured public and private notes for cash payments and new secured notes (the "Exchange Offers") and the related consent solicitation of its outstanding public notes (the "Consent Solicitation"). The Company is extending the expiration time of the Exchange Offers for three days in order to satisfy all closing conditions to the Exchange Offers.

    The Company has received tenders representing approximately 98% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding of the Company's unsecured public 6.85% Senior Notes due August 1, 2012 (the "Public Notes"). This exceeds the 85% minimum tender requirement (subject to reduction under certain circumstances) that is a condition to consummating the Exchange Offers. The indenture relating to the new secured notes contains additional closing conditions, which must be satisfied in order for the Company to complete the Exchange Offers. In extending the expiration time, the Company is targeting an announcement on June 28, 2010 that it has accepted the Exchange Offers, has satisfied these conditions and is closing the Exchange Offers on such date, or as soon as practicable thereafter.

    The Exchange Offers and the Consent Solicitation were previously scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 22, 2010 (as previously extended on June 9, 2010). The Exchange Offers and the Consent Solicitation have now been extended until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 25, 2010, unless further extended or earlier terminated.

    There is no right to withdraw public and private notes that were tendered on or prior to June 22, 2010 and there will be no right to withdraw public and private notes that are subsequently tendered. All other terms of the Exchange Offers and the Consent Solicitation remain unchanged. Holders of public notes who have not tendered in the Exchange Offers continue to have the right to tender their notes.

    The Company is not extending the voting deadline for the Company's solicitation of votes to accept a standby plan of reorganization (the "Standby Plan"), which expired on June 22, 2010, and the results of which are disclosed below. Because the Company anticipates satisfying the conditions to the Exchange Offers after the new expiration time, it does not intend to proceed with the Standby Plan.

    The Company has been advised of the following information by, as applicable, the exchange agent for the Exchange Offers and the voting agent for the Standby Plan, as of 11:59 p.m. New York City time on June 22, 2010:

    -- With regard to lenders under the Company's existing credit agreement, whose approximately $1.4 billion of claims constitute Class 3, Existing Credit Agreement Claims, under the Standby Plan, all of the lenders by outstanding principal amount participated in the solicitation of votes for the Standby Plan, with 100% in principal amount and 100% in number of votes cast supporting the Standby Plan. In connection with a restructuring of the credit agreement, lenders with approximately 49% in principal amount have elected to have their loans repaid in cash and approximately 51% in principal amount have elected to become lenders in an amended credit agreement or receive new secured notes in payment for their loans. -- With regard to the holders of the Company's unsecured private notes (the "Private Notes"), whose approximately $406 million in claims constitute Class 4, Private Notes Claims, under the Standby Plan, approximately 63.7% of holders by outstanding principal amount participated in the solicitation of votes for the Standby Plan, of which 100% in principal amount and 100% in number of votes cast supported the Standby Plan. With regard to the Exchange Offers, the following unsecured private notes have been tendered: -- $83.7 million in aggregate principal amount (100%) of outstanding 5.92% Senior Notes, Series A due September 1, 2009. -- $94.9 million in aggregate principal amount (100%) of outstanding 6.46% Senior Notes, Series B due September 1, 2011. -- $134.2 million in aggregate principal amount (100%) of outstanding 6.14% Senior Notes, Series 2005-A due August 1, 2010. -- Euro 14.8 million in aggregate principal amount (100%) of outstanding 5.177% Senior Notes, Series 2006-A due February 9, 2011. -- 3.3 million pounds Sterling in aggregate principal amount (100%) of outstanding 6.565% Senior Notes, Series 2006-B due February 9, 2011.

    Holders of $71 million in aggregate principal amount of the foregoing unsecured private notes have elected to receive new secured notes, while holders of $265 million in aggregate principal amount have elected to receive cash in payment for their notes. None of the $75 million of outstanding Floating Rate Senior Notes, Series 2005-B due October 30, 2020, have been tendered.

    -- With regard to the holders of the Public Notes, whose approximately $550 million in claims constitute Class 6, Public Notes Claims, under the Standby Plan, approximately 79.7% of holders by outstanding principal amount participated in the solicitation of votes for the Standby Plan, of which approximately 74.8% in principal amount and 46% in number of votes cast supported the Standby Plan. With regard to the Exchange Offers, $539 million in aggregate principal amount (approximately 98%) of outstanding unsecured public notes have been tendered and the same percentage has voted in favor of the Consent Solicitation. Holders of $536 million in aggregate principal amount have elected to receive new secured notes, while holders of $3 million in aggregate principal amount have elected to receive cash in payment for their notes. -- With regard to the holders of the Company's outstanding swap agreements, whose claims constitute Class 7, Swap Claims, under the Standby Plan, all of the holders by notional amount participated in the solicitation of votes for the Standby Plan, with 100% in notional amount and 100% in number of votes cast supporting the Standby Plan.

    This press release and its contents are not an offer to sell or purchase or an offer to exchange or a solicitation of acceptance of an offer to sell or purchase or offer to exchange any security. Any such offer or solicitation shall be made solely by means of an offering memorandum or other offer document furnished to existing securityholders and any securities that are offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

In Canada, an issuer is required to provide technical information with respect to mineralization, including reserves and resources, if any, on its mineral exploration properties in accordance with Canadian requirements, which differ significantly from the requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") applicable to registration statements and reports filed by United States companies pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. As such, information contained in this news release or other disclosure provided by the Company concerning descriptions of mineralization under Canadian standards may not be comparable to similar information made public by United States companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the SEC.

    CKx Adopts Stockholder Rights PlanConfirms Receipt of Indication of Interest to Acquire Minority Interest in Company

    NEW YORK, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CKx, Inc. announced today that that the Board of Directors has received a letter from a third party indicating its potential interest in commencing a tender offer for less than all of the Company's shares of common stock. The letter further indicates that the third party is in ongoing discussions with Robert F.X. Sillerman, the Company's former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and that while no specific arrangements with Mr. Sillerman have been developed, Mr. Sillerman was not expected to tender his shares into any such offer. The shares held by Mr. Sillerman when aggregated with those sought by the third party would represent a majority of the shares of the Company.

    The Board of Directors determined that it would not be in the stockholders best interests for the Board to facilitate an offer, should such an offer be received, for less than all of the shares of the Company. The Board of Directors in response has adopted a Stockholder Rights Plan to protect stockholders from potentially coercive takeover tactics, and to provide fair and equal treatment for all stockholders. The preferred share purchase rights are not intended to prevent or discourage a takeover and the Board of Directors would carefully consider a fully financed offer for all of the Company's shares. The Board has the ability to redeem the rights and/or amend the Stockholders Rights Plan, including to permit an offer to purchase all of the Company's shares.

    Pursuant to the plan, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of one preferred share purchase right for each outstanding share of its common stock. The preferred share purchase rights will be distributed to stockholders of record as of July 2, 2010, but would only be activated if triggered by the plan. Stockholders who currently hold 15 percent or more of the outstanding shares of common stock will not trigger the preferred share purchase rights unless they acquire beneficial ownership of an additional 1 percent or more of the outstanding common stock.

    The preferred share purchase rights will expire upon the earlier to occur of the close of business on June 22, 2020 (unless that date is advanced or extended by the Board) and the time at which these rights are redeemed or exchanged under the plan.

    The issuance of the preferred share purchase rights will not affect the Company's reported earnings per share and is not taxable to the Company or its stockholders.

    Additional information regarding the plan will be contained in a Form 8-K and in a Registration Statement on Form 8-A that the Company is filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    About CKx, Inc.

    CKx, Inc. is engaged in the ownership, development and commercial utilization of entertainment content.

    In the Race to Attract & Spend Stimulus Project Dollars, Some States Score Gold, While Others LagRecovery Act contracting surge expected in second half of 2010

    SEATTLE, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- A new analysis by Onvia, , reveals some states excel at attracting Recovery Act project funding and quickly awarding it to contractors, while others lag far behind on both measures. Alaska, North Dakota, Wyoming, and New Hampshire placed in top of the "Gold" category in Onvia's analysis, while Virginia, Ohio, Georgia, Missouri, and Nevada placed in the at the lowest end of the "Laggard" category. Onvia is the leader in gBusiness solutions and the creator of Recovery.org, a private sector initiative to give businesses transparency into recovery project spending.

    The analysis reviewed the per capita stimulus funding received by the 50 states for projects from the Recovery Act, and the speed with which the funds have been awarded to contractors that create the private sector jobs needed to do the work.

    Top level findings: -- Connecticut and Massachusetts scored the highest velocity of projects actually awarded to contractors using Recovery Act funding, with 37.7% and 36.5% of funds received within the state awarded to contractors, respectively. South Carolina had the lowest velocity, 0.2%. -- North Carolina attracted the most Recovery Act project dollars per capita ($7,125), followed by Alaska ($2,482), Montana ($1,523), Colorado ($1,469), and New Mexico ($1,418). New Jersey and Florida attracted the least per capita ($700 and $710, respectively). -- Alaska did the best combined job of attracting and awarding Recovery Act project funds - placing it at the top of the "Gold" category. Others in this category include North Dakota, Wyoming, and New Hampshire. Virginia led the "Laggards" category - states that attracted the fewest project funds per capita and were slowest to award them. Others in this category include Ohio, Georgia, Missouri, and Nevada. -- Michigan, where the unemployment rate was the highest at 14.3%, ranked in the "Laggard" category with $821 project dollars received per capita, and with just 14% of those projects actually awarded to contractors. Nevada, which also had one of the highest unemployment rates, was also in the Laggard category at $733 per capita and 9.4% awarded.

    An interactive diagram of the findings is available at http://promotions.onvia.com/pages/chart/arra_velocity.html. The findings were culled from Onvia's data through March, 2010 - roughly one year since stimulus money began flowing to the states.

    "Onvia's analysis shows the bulk of the Recovery Act project funds have yet to make their way all the way through the system to the contractors and subcontractors that do the work and create private sector jobs on Main Street. However some states are far more efficient than others," said Mike Pickett, Onvia CEO. "We believe the second half of 2010 will see a substantial acceleration in the velocity of contract awards. Businesses that want a part of the emerging gBusiness marketplace should be following these projects now and preparing for a wave of contract awards in the second half of the year."

    As of June 17, 2010, Onvia was tracking roughly 72,000 Recovery Act projects valued at $200 billion, of which 23,000 projects totaling $66 billion had been awarded to contractors.

    Verizon Completes Industry-Leading 100G Ethernet Field TrialLatest Trial With Alcatel-Lucent on Metropolitan Facilities Advances Technology by Successfully Supporting Switched Ethernet Services at Super-Fast Speeds

    BASKING RIDGE, N.J., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing to lead the industry in 100G technology, Verizon has completed a field trial carrying 100 gigabit-per-second Ethernet traffic on a metropolitan Ethernet infrastructure. Using Alcatel-Lucent equipment deployed in Verizon's Switched Ethernet Services network, the trial successfully transmitted data over 12.7 kilometers (7.9 miles) of field fiber in the company's Dallas area network.

    Verizon SES is a next-generation switched Ethernet service enabling customers to easily interconnect their locations within a metrowide network as well as access private and public wide area networks (WANs) using optical fiber-based access. Ethernet service is well-suited for numerous customer applications, based on its ability to provide point-to-point and multipoint connectivity options combined with multiple classes of service and increments of bandwidths.

    Demand for SES is increasing, driven by trends such as wireless carriers using Ethernet backhaul to stay ahead of the growing demand for high-bandwidth wireless services. Verizon currently provides links for thousands of cell sites and mobile switching offices from its advanced fiber-optic network, using Ethernet-based technology.

    "With this 100G Ethernet trial, Verizon is preparing for the future and the need to meet our customers' bandwidth needs in the metro Ethernet space," said Jean McManus, executive director of technology for Verizon. "The network of tomorrow will include building blocks such as 100G Ethernet that allow us to scale our switched Ethernet core as access speeds and customer demands increase."

    The trial, which ran from June 14 - 18, used existing Alcatel-Lucent 7450 switching equipment with new plug-in cards to place native 100GE traffic on a single fiber, creating the high-speed links.

    "Our goal is to show 100GE can be carried on a metro network and do it with current equipment that avoids major changes -- and the associated costs -- to the existing network infrastructure," said McManus.

    Alcatel-Lucent's 7450 ESS nodes used 100 GE service interfaces with 100GBASE-LR10 optics, which provide low-cost, high-bandwidth transport over distances of up to 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). Verizon is at the forefront of accelerating the availability and adoption of 100GE technology.

    "A seamless transition to 100GE leveraging existing Alcatel-Lucent IP Routing platforms enables Verizon to expand its innovative Ethernet service offerings in a timely and efficient manner," said Robert Vrij, president of the Americas region at Alcatel-Lucent. "Services are the driver of revenues and the rationale for investment in the network. Our platforms deliver speed without compromising services, leveraging our breakthrough 100G silicon innovation and long-standing relationships with leading service providers such as Verizon."

    Alcatel-Lucent offers the industry's first 100GE interfaces that deliver the full range of routed and switched services for residential, business and mobile services. Deployed in networks serving metropolitan areas -- at the service edge or in the core of the network -- Alcatel-Lucent's modules extend the applicability of 100GE far beyond core transport. Combined with 100G optical transport technology, Alcatel-Lucent offers exceptional end-to-end scalability, performance and compatibility to help support bandwidth scaling and control costs -- key tenets of Alcatel-Lucent's High Leverage Network (HLN) architecture.

    In each of the past four years, Verizon has received top awards, including "International Service Provider of the Year" and "Service Provider of the Year - Best in Business," from the Metro Ethernet Forum on the strength of the company's comprehensive and robust Ethernet portfolio, extensive geographic coverage and industry innovation.

    Verizon's SES network supports Ethernet LAN (E-LAN) and Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) metro services. E-LAN is a multipoint-to-multipoint bridging service designed for any-to-any connectivity between dedicated ports. EVPL is an all-fiber optic network service that connects subscriber locations at native LAN speeds using point-to-point Ethernet virtual connections.

    This latest trial follows Verizon's deployment of the first live 100G commercial system on its European optical core network between Paris and Frankfurt as well as a series of successful 100G technology trials the company has previously completed.

    In November 2007, Verizon and Alcatel-Lucent successfully completed the industry's first field test of 100G optical transmission on a live network route between Tampa, Fla., and Miami. In October 2008, Verizon and Nortel proved 100G transmission could perform with better tolerance for signal distortion than typically found in today's standard 10G wavelength. In September 2008, Verizon and Nokia Siemens Networks announced they had successfully transmitted data at 100G on a single wavelength for more than 1,040 kilometers, setting a new distance record over deployed fiber and demonstrating better performance than conventional transmission.

    Pink OTC Markets Launches Real-Time OTC Market Data SuiteIncludes No-Cost, Real-Time Reference Price Product

    NEW YORK, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pink OTC Markets Inc. (OTCQX: PINK), which operates the OTCQX®, OTCQB(TM) and Pink Sheets® marketplaces for registered broker-dealers to efficiently trade unlisted stocks, today announces its introduction of Real-Time+, a suite of real-time market data products. Real-Time+ features the new Real-Time Reference Price product which is available at no cost to leading financial website operators and market data terminal providers to give their users a baseline reference price in real-time. Real-Time+ offers valuable pricing data for all investors - from the casual investor to the professional trader - and it's all real-time.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20090623/NY36558LOGO ) (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090623/NY36558LOGO )

    Real-Time+ was created in response to the tremendous growth in the OTC market. Today there are 9,400 OTC quoted securities, a 24% increase since 2003. In 2009, dollar volume reached $108 billion and the total market capitalization of securities quoted on Pink OTC's systems was over $700 billion. Quote updates have increased tremendously by 230% year over year.

    Pink OTC Markets is now the third largest U.S. market by dollar value traded. Many high quality companies, including large-cap multi-nationals such as Deutsche Telekom AG, AXA, and Roche Holding Ltd, have chosen to list on Pink OTC's quality-controlled OTCQX marketplace. Better quality companies as well as increased information disclosure and price transparency are key factors driving the rise in OTC trading activity.

    "Traditional stock exchanges make 15 minute delayed market data available to investors at no cost. Fifteen minutes is too long in today's internet enabled world, so we're introducing market price data that's real-time, all the time, to fit the fast pace of the electronic OTC markets we operate," says R. Cromwell Coulson, President and CEO of Pink OTC Markets Inc.

    "Delayed price data is no longer acceptable for investors. They expect the most current OTC market prices when making critical trading and investment decisions. Real-Time+ will provide investors with access to real-time prices for all OTCQX, OTCQB and Pink Sheet securities," Coulson added.

    Real-Time+ offers three product lines to fit the diverse needs of all OTC market participants. Real-Time Reference Price is offered to financial website operators and market data terminal providers to give their users a baseline reference price in real-time. It is available at no cost and with no per user licensing to distributors of Pink OTC's premium market data products. Level 1+ enhances the typical Best Bid & Ask (BBO) data with Bid, Ask and Aggregate Size for all price levels in real-time. Level 2+ continues to be the premier market data product for OTC professionals and sophisticated investors. Both Level 1+ and Level 2+ offer real-time Pink Link® time and sales. All Real-Time+ products will be offered via multi-cast architecture, which is more reliable and will reduce bandwidth requirements for consumers of OTC market data. Real-time+ offers faster prices, more data and a more reliable platform with no increase in real-time licensing fees.

    Coulson will officially introduce Real-Time+ to the market data community on June 24th at the Software and Information Industry's Financial Information Services Division (SIIA/FISD) General Meeting, hosted by Thomson Reuters in New York.

    Valeant Pharmaceuticals Resumes Shipment of Oxsoralen-Ultra(R)

    ALISO VIEJO, Calif., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Valeant Pharmaceuticals International today announced that Oxsoralen-Ultra®, its therapy for severe psoriasis, is now available again in the United States on a limited supply basis.

    Since last year, Valeant has experienced a shortage of Oxsoralen products due to an unanticipated change in the supplier of the product's active ingredient.

    "Valeant understands the importance of Oxsoralen-Ultra to patients suffering from psoriasis, and we have been working diligently in partnership with the FDA to address the drug shortage," said Rajiv De Silva, chief operating officer of specialty pharmaceuticals. "We are pleased to be able to begin re-supplying Oxsoralen-Ultra to physicians and their patients on a limited basis and apologize for any issues this shortage has caused. Valeant is committed to promptly getting this product back on pharmacy shelves."

    Patients can obtain Oxsoralen-Ultra (Methoxsalen Capsules, USP, 10mg) with a prescription through their local pharmacies who will work with their wholesalers to arrange for shipment.

    If you have any questions or concerns about product availability, please contact the Valeant Customer Care group at 1-800-556-1937 or pharmcs@valeant.com.

    About Oxsoralen-Ultra

    Oxsoralen-Ultra (Methoxsalen Capsules, USP, 10mg) is used for the treatment of severe psoriasis and is used along with ultraviolet light radiation. Studies show that UVA therapy with Oxsoralen-Ultra effectively clears or improves severe, recalcitrant, disabling psoriasis in 84% of the patients who undergo this therapy. Studies further show that it can lead to extended remissions lasting from months to years.

    Important Safety Information

    CAUTION: METHOXSALEN IS A POTENT DRUG. READ ENTIRE BROCHURE PRIOR TO PRESCRIBING OR DISPENSING THIS MEDICATION.

    Methoxsalen with UV radiation should be used only by physicians who have special competence in the diagnosis and treatment of psoriasis and who have special training and experience in photochemotherapy. The use of Psoralen and ultraviolet radiation therapy should be under constant supervision of such a physician. For the treatment of patients with psoriasis, photochemotherapy should be restricted to patients with severe, recalcitrant, disabling psoriasis which is not adequately responsive to other forms of therapy, and only when the diagnosis is certain. Because of the possibilities of ocular damage, aging of the skin, and skin cancer (including melanoma), the patient should be fully informed by the physician of the risks inherent in this therapy.

    CAUTION: Oxsoralen-Ultra (Methoxsalen Soft Gelatin Capsules) should not be used interchangeably with regular Oxsoralen or 8-MOP® (Methoxsalen Hard Gelatin Capsules). This new dosage form of methoxsalen exhibits significantly greater bioavailability and earlier photosensitization onset time than previous methoxsalen dosage forms.

    Capstone Reports Mineral Resource Estimate for Minto East and Resumption of Drilling

    VANCOUVER, Canada, June 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

    - Highest Grade Deposit at Minto to Date - Exploration Continues in Support of an Underground Development

    Capstone Mining Corp. ("Capstone") (CS:TSX) today announced the results of National Instrument 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate for the Minto East deposit discovered in 2009 at its high grade Minto copper-gold mine in Yukon, Canada. This is a preliminary mineral resource estimate for the Minto East deposit, which is still open to the east, and where exploration drilling has just resumed. Drilling at Minto East will comprise step-out holes to test the limits of the deposit and infill holes to increase the classification of the existing mineral resource. Exploration drilling will also continue to test other exploration targets, including those generated from the Titan 24 deep IP survey, which is about 60% complete.

    "The discovery of high grade copper-gold mineralization at Minto East has opened up a whole new arena within our claims that is prospective for further deposits and we aim to continue our aggressive exploration agenda in order to sustain the tremendous rate of discovery, exceeding more than one new deposit per year at Minto for the past five years," said Stephen Quin, President of Capstone Mining Corp. "Past exploration has focused largely within 150 metres from surface since the focus was primarily mineralization amenable to open pit mining," he said. "That focus has now changed since scoping work on the feasibility of underground mining operations has identified opportunities to exploit deeper mineralized horizons, beneath the limits of current and planned open pits." The discovery at Minto East, aided by a proof of concept Titan-24 deep earth imaging IP survey in 2009, has prompted Capstone to significantly enlarge the Titan-24 survey area in 2010 with the aim of identifying and drill testing any new anomalies in the same year. Recent new chargeability anomalies near Copper Keel - Airstrip and west of Area 118 suggest significant new drill targets.

    Mineral Resource Estimates

    Minto East - Preliminary Estimate

    The results of the preliminary, NI43-101 mineral resource estimate for the Minto East deposit, a new high grade, copper-gold discovery made in late 2009, are very encouraging. Minto East is the highest grade deposit discovered within the Minto Mine property to date, and is one of the continuing focuses for the current exploration drill program. The mineral resource estimate is tabulated below using a 0.5% copper cut-off grade (COG ) to allow direct comparison purposes with other Minto deposits, and at a 1 .5% COG (similar to that used for underground mining in the Phase V scoping study discussed in a news release dated June 8, 2010). At the 1.5% COG, the mineral resource estimate for Minto East exceeds the amount of unclassified material used in the Phase V scoping study.

    Minto - Mineral Resources by Class for the Minto East Deposit (at a 0.5% copper cut-off) ----------------------------------------------------------- Classification Tonnes Copper Gold Silver (000's)(x) (%) (g/t) (g/t) ----------------------------------------------------------- Measured (M) - - - - ----------------------------------------------------------- Indicated (I) 736 2.35 0.99 6.2 ----------------------------------------------------------- Additional Inferred 588 1.73 0.81 5.6 ----------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Classification Contained Cu Contained Gold Contained Silver (000's lbs)(x) (000's oz)(x) (000's oz)(x) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Measured (M) - - - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Indicated (I) 38,132 23 147 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Additional Inferred 22,426 15 106 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Minto - Mineral Resources by Class for the Minto East Deposit (at a 1.5% copper cut-off) ----------------------------------------------------------- Classification Tonnes Copper Gold Silver (000's)(x) (%) (g/t) (g/t) ----------------------------------------------------------- Measured (M) - - - - ----------------------------------------------------------- Indicated (I) 541 2.88 1.16 7.1 ----------------------------------------------------------- Additional Inferred 284 2.55 0.95 6.4 ----------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Classification Contained Cu Contained Gold Contained Silver (000's lbs)(x) (000's oz)(x) (000's oz)(x) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Measured (M) - - - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Indicated (I) 34,349 20 123 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Additional Inferred 15,966 9 58 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- (x)Rounded to nearest thousand (xx)Totals may not add exactly due to rounding

    A significant percentage of the Minto East mineral resource is already in the indicated category but, in consideration of the high grade nature of the Minto East mineralization and its potential significance in any underground mine development at Minto, drilling has resumed with one rig, in order to infill the inferred portions of the new resource estimate to a minimum of indicated class as well as continuing to step out to the east. A second drill will test chargeability targets identified in the current Titan-24 IP survey. This survey which will cover about 85% of the mine property, is approximately 60% complete.

    Mineral Resource Estimates

    The Minto East mineral resource estimate reported herein for Minto East was estimated by Garth Kirkham P. Geo. of Kirkham Geosystems who is the Independent Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the Minto East mineral resource estimate. The Minto East mineral resource estimation was completed in MineSight(R) using a 3 dimensional block model and a geology model based upon 16 boreholes. The block model consisted of 10 x 10 x 3 m block sizes using 1.5m composites and the mineralization was interpreted as 1 domain. Wireframes were created and geostatistical analysis was completed on both the assay data and the 1. 5m composite data for each of the metals estimated. The resulting interpretation is a relatively flat lying mineralized zone with good continuity, an interpretation consistent with the resource models for adjacent deposits. The block grades were interpolated using independently derived ID2 parameters. Resource classification methodology takes into account both continuity of the mineralization and sample density of the exploration drilling.

    SRK Consulting of Vancouver is nearing completion of new NI43-101 mineral resource estimates for two other deposits, Area 2 / 118 and Ridgetop, the results of which are expected soon and are anticipated to generate targets for further drill testing.

    Mineral Resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These mineral resource estimates include inferred mineral resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied.

    Titan-24 IP Survey

    The 2010 Titan 24 IP survey, which is planned to cover approximately 60 line kilometres, is approximately 60% complete and will cover about 85% of the mine property when finished. The survey was suspended due to the recent wildfire but is expected to recommence next week. Preliminary 2D inversion models have been received for the partial survey and several new chargeability anomalies have already been identified and will be drill tested in the coming weeks.

    After a short break for freshet and a delay due to the recent wildfire , drilling has now recommenced with several objectives in mind:

    (1) Increase the borehole density at Minto East sufficient to infill most of the current inferred mineral resource to an indicated classification or better, which would be sufficient for conversion to mineral reserves should economic factors warrant. (2) Test the limits of the current Minto East resource for possible expansion, where it currently remains open to the east and southeast. (3) Test new Titan-24 chargeability anomalies recently identified in areas not previously drilled. (4) Increase the borehole density in a "connector" region between Area 2 and north Copper Keel sufficient to expand and define to a minimum of an indicated mineral resource classification, this mineralization lying beneath or adjacent to the current limits of the proposed Area 2 open pit.

    Quality Assurance

    The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 and reviewed by Stephen P. Quin, P. Geo., President of Capstone Mining Corp., who has reviewed the content of this press release. The exploration activities at the Minto project site are carried out under the supervision of Brad Mercer, P. Geol., V.P. Exploration for Capstone. The mineral resources discussed in this new release were estimated by the following:

    Garth Kirkham (P. Geo.) of Kirkham Geosystems Ltd. is the Independent Qualified Persons under National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the Minto East mineral resource estimate and has reviewed the information in this release in respect of the Minto East mineral resource estimates.

    The analytical method for the copper and silver analyses is aqua regia digestion of the samples followed by atomic absorption spectroscopy. Gold is analysed by fire assay fusion with atomic absorption spectroscopy finish for gold. Analyses are carried out by ALS Chemex in North Vancouver. When visible gold is noted in drill core samples or regular fire assay values appear abnormally high, the pulp and screen metallic assay method is used to determine the total gold content and gold contents of different size fractions. This is considered industry best practice when dealing with coarse gold mineralization where a nugget effect is suspected. This determination is accepted as the most representative value and is used in the assay database for resource calculations. Blank and standard samples are used for quality assurance and quality control. Where more than two check samples assay outside expected ranges, the entire batch is re-assayed . After the completion of planned drill programs at Minto, random check assays will be carried out by Acme Analytical of Vancouver.

    FTI Technology Announces Availability of Enhanced Ringtail® Analytics E-Discovery SoftwareEnterprise-class capabilities help legal teams reduce expense of e-discovery

    LOS ANGELES, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- From the LegalTech West conference, FTI Consulting, Inc. , the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that its FTI Technology business segment has launched the enhanced Ringtail Analytics module for the market-leading Ringtail e-discovery platform. The updated offering includes the popular clustering and visual review capabilities of Document Mapper as well as two components, Smart Decision and Concept Mapper, designed to assist in early case assessments (ECA), keyword testing and the faster creation of review assignments. In total, the expanded Ringtail Analytics module provides powerful data analytics and visual review tools that together dramatically increase the productivity and efficiency of legal review.

    "Ringtail Analytics has produced tangible productivity gains for our review teams and we expect it will provide substantial cost savings to our clients moving forward," said Danny Chan, eDiscovery/litigation support project manager of Bereskin & Parr LLP. "As data volumes grow, linear review technology becomes inefficient. Fortunately, Ringtail Analytics lets us smartly cut through the data, understand key concepts and review relevant documents faster and more effectively."

    Ringtail Analytics is comprised of three complementary components: -- Smart Decision: Smart Decision helps clients rapidly test and sample keywords across millions of documents while also providing advanced whole-case reporting and familiar pivot table capabilities to track project status and review metrics. -- Concept Mapper: Concept Mapper organizes large-scale document collections by key concepts and concept frequency into a simple and easy-to-use dashboard. Using Concept Mapper, legal teams can quickly build assignments based on specific themes then route to the Ringtail review workflow which ensures that the most important documents will be reviewed first. -- Document Mapper: The Document Mapper review interface is an integrated component of the Ringtail Analytics module and can be used at any stage of the e-discovery or review process, including for early case assessments, investigations, preparing for depositions or for quality control of reviewed documents.

    "In a recent study, 39 percent of Fortune 1000 inside counsel respondents said they are using visualization and clustering tools to speed the review process," said Ed Pfromer, senior managing director, FTI Technology. "This number is likely to grow as legal teams realize that linear review is no longer an adequate solution for e-discovery volumes and court-defined deadlines. We were an early innovator in visualization and clustering for e-discovery, and with this enhanced release, Ringtail Analytics further refines the user experience and greatly expands the reach of these critical technologies to encompass larger data sets and more use cases than ever before."

    Through its comprehensive portfolio of e-discovery software, services and consulting, FTI Technology is transforming the way corporations and their law firms globally manage e-discovery for legal and regulatory events. Through offerings such as FTI Acuity, FTI Technology's e-discovery services and consulting help streamline the entire e-discovery process and can provide clients a single point of e-discovery accountability. The comprehensive portfolio of FTI Technology software, including Attenex and Ringtail, delivers advanced technology for the most mission-critical and costly steps of e-discovery. FTI Technology's e-discovery software can be deployed either on-premise or on-demand as a hosted solution, a hybrid capability that helps clients scale to the unique demands of each legal matter without sacrificing a consistent and cost-effective e-discovery process. Altogether, FTI Technology provides a smart and comprehensive approach to improve the e-discovery process, contain costs without cutting corners, and manage client's critical enterprise information demands.
