<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – America’s quest to reduce its fuel consumption and dependence on foreign oil may lead it to look for energy sources in new places — like the bottom of a trash barrel.

JBI, Inc. (OTCBB:JBII), a global technology company, has developed a process, called Plastic2Oil (P2O), that converts raw, unwashed, unsorted plastic waste into a fuel similar to biofuel. In April 2010, an independent laboratory, Islechem, validated the P2O process through extensive chemical, analytical and process engineering testing.

Islechem tested the process over 40 times using multicolored, mixed plastics. The laboratory determined that the P20 process is repeatable and can be done on a large scale. Approximately 85 to 90 percent of the hydrocarbon composition in the feedstock is converted into a “near diesel” fuel, while about 8 percent is converted to a usable off gas much like natural gas. In addition, only 1 percent of the plastic becomes residue, and that residue does not contain any highly toxic elements and is safe for landfill disposal. Even better, more energy is produced than consumed by the process. Early data suggest that the process creates twice as much energy as it uses.

“It takes energy to produce energy. The key is to get more energy from the final product than it takes to make it,” said JBI, Inc. CEO John Bordynuik. “Our process has a high positive energy balance of 2.0, while gasoline from crude has a negative energy balance of 0.81.”

The fuel produced by the P20 process has another major advantage over gasoline from crude oil — its production, including labor, costs only about $10 a barrel.

Gasoline from crude oil uses more energy than it produces and currently costs between $75 and $85 a barrel — and yet gasoline companies yield high profits. A process like P20 could revolutionize the market by creating high-quality fuel at much lower costs, while also helping to reduce the amount of plastic that becomes pollution or ends up in landfills.

JBI, Inc. is currently in talks to create P20 processing facilities in Europe, Florida, New York, California, Colorado, Wisconsin, Georgia and Ohio. The company is also looking for waste disposal or recycling companies, and people with under-utilized facilities to convert into P2O factories.

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – After a seven-day trial, a federal jury in Colorado rendered a verdict finding that Allergy Research Group (ARG), a subsidiary of the Kikkoman Corp. (OTC: KIKOF.PK), violated federal false advertising laws in marketing their product, “Russian Choice Immune,” as identical to the immune system support supplement Del-Immune V, previously marketed by ARG as Delta-Immune. The jury also determined that ARG misled buyers as to the product’s origin — Russian Choice Immune was actually developed and manufactured in Vietnam — then sent it to the U.S. without conducting any prior research, according to the testimony of ARG’s own expert, Dr. Ba Hoang.

Del-Immune V is a unique probiotic supplement made from the “good bacteria” lactobacillus rhamnosus (DV strain), authored in the Ukraine by Dr. Lubov Shynkarenko, Del-Immune vice president and former dean of the Biotechnology Institute at Kiev’s elite National Technical University.

Manufactured by Boulder-based Pure Research Products LLC (PRP), the Del-Immune V dietary supplement provides immediate immune system support, helping the body defend itself from environmental invaders such as viruses and germs. It is also used to help the body deal with other health issues by strengthening the body’s natural immune response.

When the probiotic’s cells break, they release immune-activating proteins that immediately prepare the immune system to fight foreign invaders. Those taking the supplement boost their general immune response, as well as more adequately prepare their bodies to resist germs and bugs.

Del-Immune represents the culmination of 50 years of research originated by Cold War-era Soviet Bloc scientists and Russian military bio-warfare troop protection programs. PRP obtained exclusive rights to manufacture, distribute and market the DV strain from its Russian partners in 2002.

“We conducted analysis of the counterfeit product and found that it did not have the characteristics of Del-Immune V,” said John Sichel, pharmacist and Del-Immune founder. “While we’re flattered that they would want to copy one of the most thoroughly researched and effective immune system supplements in the world, we’re happy that the jury recognized that this was confusing customers who want the immune system benefits of American-made Del-Immune V.”

Del-Immune V is used by thousands and recommended by doctors around the world. For more information, please visit www.del-immune.com.

Quadruple Amputee Stands Tall Again

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – Twenty-two-year-old Manuel Salazar had just begun work on a construction site in Georgia when, in an instant, his life was changed forever.

A crane on the job site hit a power line, sending it to the ground where Salazar was standing, and hitting him twice with 115,000 volts of electricity. While exposure to this dose of electricity is enough to kill anyone, miraculously Salazar survived to tell the tale.

However, Salazar’s injuries were grave. His burns were life-threatening and required that his arms and legs be amputated. The emotional struggle ahead of him as a quadruple amputee was overwhelming.

“I didn’t understand why they had saved my life,” said Salazar. “I didn’t think life could go on.”

But press on he did, and he was given new hope numerous times from the help of donated allograft tissue, a gift from deceased human donors. AlloSource, one of the nation’s largest non-profit providers of skin, bone and soft tissue allografts, provided the life-saving skin grafts to cover Salazar’s burns and promote healing.

After his stay in the burn unit, he was brought to the Denver Center for Extremities at Risk. Because of the extent of his amputations, it was difficult to fit prosthetics for Salazar.

Dr. Ross Wilkins and the team at the center again used human tissue processed at AlloSource to help Salazar’s mobility. Donor bone was used to help build Salazar a shoulder. Along with muscle from Salazar’s back, the new shoulder can sustain a lightweight, highly functional prosthetic. With the new shoulder and prosthetic, Salazar can now feed himself, brush his teeth and even scratch his head, many simple things that he could not accomplish before.

Despite his ongoing physical setbacks, Salazar insists that he is the same man he was before the accident six years ago. In fact, his stubbies (short prosthetic legs that allow him to walk in a shuffling motion) and wheelchair have hardly held him back: Salazar skis, water-skis, swims, drives and wants to go ski diving. He also opened an auto body shop called Progressive Auto Works, in Colorado, and employs a team of people.

He speaks often to groups and inspires others with his incredible spirit.

“I’m thankful to be alive,” said Salazar. “I want to try new things. I see life in a whole new way.”

Changing Children’s Lives: A Woman’s Mission

<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – Life changed for Dorothy Samson in an Indian orphanage. Seeing the incredible needs of the children there, the Colorado resident knew she could make a difference.

So started a journey that led her to Compassion International and its unique child sponsorship program. Now, after just five years working with the ministry, 25 children count on Samson for prayers, letters and support.

“They crawl up into my lap; they call me ‘Auntie Dorothy,'” Samson said. “They are my children.”

Although Samson never had children of her own, that didn’t stop her from sharing her love and compassion with little ones.

“I always wanted to have 12 children with an abundance of boys,” Samson said.

From her home in Grand Junction, Samson began her Compassion sponsorship experience in 1999 with four children from India and one from Haiti. That number soon grew to 13 children, and she got that abundance of boys.

Later, when she learned that there was a need for sponsors for African children, she didn’t hesitate to take on even more.

“Compassion told me that there was a lack of sponsors for African children because of the HIV/AIDS problem,” Samson said. “I can understand people wanting to invest their money in children who are certain to grow up to be healthy, productive adults. But all children are precious, even those who might be HIV-positive. They aren’t responsible for having the disease – they are innocent victims, and they, too, deserve the opportunity to have a happy childhood and to be loved and cared for.”

Responding to the need, Samson sponsored 12 African children – eight of them in Uganda. And in September 2002, she spent five special days with “my youngsters,” as she refers to them. She treated her children to a game park, a safari and a boat ride to see hippos.

“Of course, the kids were so excited. They’d never seen animals in the wild or even taken a boat ride. It was wonderful to see their excitement,” Samson said.

Since she’s returned from Africa, Samson has had several opportunities to share her experience and tell others about her precious Ugandan children, several of whom have already had to deal with the devastating effects of HIV/AIDS, having lost parents, siblings and other close relatives to the disease.

“I don’t know if any of my children have the disease,” Samson said. ” I pray that they do not. But it would never change how I feel about them. I love them as my own children. My hope for them is that they can have a happy childhood and become all they can be in Jesus – free from AIDS.”

When Compassion International opened its first projects in Uganda in 1980, the scourge of HIV/AIDS had not yet affected the world. Little did anyone know that only a few years later, many of the children Compassion serves in Uganda would battle the effects of this deadly, incurable disease. Compassion International currently ministers to more than 164,000 children in five countries in East Africa.

Compassion International partners with local churches to help implement development programs for children in their communities. To learn more, visit www.compassion.com or call 1-800-336-7676.
