NSOL conference might boost it later this month. A company looking to set up waste to ethanol plants. The stock is down over the past few months and is presenting at an industry conference in two weeks. A perfect penny popper.

Fuel Frontiers President Jack Young to Address the Future Fuels 2006 Conference in Washington, DC
Tuesday November 14, 10:17 am ET


Two-Day Conference to Focus on Commercial Opportunities for the Development of Alternative Fuels in the USA


WASHINGTON, DC--(MARKET WIRE)--Nov 14, 2006 -- Fuel Frontiers, Inc., a subsidiary of Nuclear Solutions, Inc. (OTC BB:NSOL.OB - News), announced today that President Jack C. Young will be speaking at this year's Future Fuels 2006 conference hosted by the CWC group (http://www.thecwcgroup.com) at the Madison Hotel in Washington, DC November 27-29, 2006.
Mr. Young's presentation will include discussions on new approaches to producing ethanol from waste materials and will focus on the technical and commercial potential for converting waste coal and tires to ethanol. Mr Young will also give an update on Fuel Frontiers' current projects and long-term plans and will expand on opportunities, issues and challenges for future plant development. Mr. Young's speaker biography is available at thecwcgroup.com

Beyond that, WTH does any of that have to do with the Patriot Act anyway? It's like there's nothing in this country that can go wrong anymore that someone won't decide is All Bush's Fault(TM).

The sad part is, the debate over the war has gotten so poisonous that I wouldn't be surprised to found out that kid honestly believed it was either get away somehow or wake up the next morning in Gitmo.

More Shots Fired

Desperate times call for drastic measures.

Global Links, a small, Las Vegas-based real estate company that has tried to ring alarm bells over what it sees as manipulative trading in its stock, is trying to get a federal court to stop the Depository Trust & Clearing Corp. from talking about it publicly.

But late Tuesday, a Nevada federal court judge canceled a hearing for Wednesday that was to decide on Global Links' request for a temporary restraining order forcing the DTCC to retract a "media statement" that currently appears on its Web site. Instead, the two sides will meet in court Nov. 16 to argue over a preliminary injunction.

Global Links has also sued the DTCC for defamation over a line in the media statement that suggested sub-penny stock companies try to artificially raise their stock prices by doing 350-to-1 reverse splits.

Global Links is, in fact, a sub-penny stock company and has done several such reverse splits over the last few years. The media statement has "damaged Global Links' reputation and its ability to raise funds," the lawsuit claims. Global Links says the damage is in excess of $75,000.

The DTCC says the lawsuit is without merit.

This isn't the first time a company has locked horns with the DTCC, the brokerage-owned private company that handles the bulk of the clearing and settlement in U.S. securities transactions. But the DTCC has prevailed most of the time.

Eleven companies have had lawsuits against the DTCC dismissed in the last few years. The claims against DTCC have to do with its role in the trade settlement process.

Companies like Global Links have claimed that the high degree of trade settlement failures have caused irreparable damage not only to their stocks but also to their ability to carry on as companies. Trade settlement failures can be an indication that a manipulative form of short-selling--called naked short-selling--is going on with the stock.

Though regulators say naked short-selling (in which shares are sold short without being properly borrowed) isn't a pervasive problem, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission sees it as enough of a risk that it is seeking to close certain loopholes that makes it easier to pull off a naked short trade.

The DTCC not only settles the bulk of U.S. equity transactions. It also runs a stock borrowing program for member firms that are engaging in short-selling or other market-making activities where borrowing securities becomes necessary. Some companies have taken issue with how this stock borrowing program is run, saying it can be used for manipulative purposes.

The DTCC has fought back by saying the regulation of trading activities is the job of the SEC and the national exchanges, not its own. In a statement earlier this year accompanying the news that yet another lawsuit against it was dismissed, DTCC General Counsel Larry Thompson said, "Short-selling and naked short-selling are trading strategies and are not connected to the post-trade clearance and settlement of securities transactions.”

Data obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request by David Patch, a well-known blogger in the movement to eradicate manipulative naked short-selling, showed an astonishingly high degree of trade settlement failures in Global Links shares in the days and weeks following a 350-to-1 reverse split in February 2005.

The data indicated that there were 27 million times the number of settlement failures as there were shares outstanding at the time. That can only happen when something is amiss.

More than a year since then, it appears that the reverse split was botched by some of the brokerage companies handling customer accounts and that the reverse wasn’t recorded in the accounts. Two individuals managed to buy more than 110% of Global Links shares in the confusion after the 350-to-1 reverse split occurred.

The company saw darker forces at work. "It became very clear that we had no control of the volume or price of our stock in any way," said Global Links Chief Executive Frank Dobrucki, in a March 15, 2005, letter to shareholders. "Outside forces were now manipulating our stock."

Global Links was raised in a Senate Banking Committee hearing that spring, when Sen. Robert Bennett, R-Utah, told then SEC Chairman William Donaldson that his constituents, among them Internet retailer Overstock.com (nasdaq: OSTK - news - people ), had complained that a regulation designed to curb abusive trading was not working.

The DTCC media statement that is the subject of Global Links' defamation suit was first published by the DTCC on Aug. 31. In it, the DTCC said it was investigating transactions reported in recent news accounts but concluded that the magnitude of trade settlement failures in Global Links shares in early 2005 "hardly constitutes the threat to the capital markets that the article implied."

The DTCC was referring to two Forbes.com stories about Global Links, but it didn't mention Forbes.com by name in its media statement.

Global Links took issue with the assertions made in the media statement, particularly the DTCC's calculation of the dollar value of the trade failures, which it said was about $38,000. Dobrucki fired off a letter to the DTCC accusing it of being "misleading" and saying the actual dollar value of trade failures in his stock was more than $100 million.

This prompted a flurry of letters between the DTCC and Global Links, culminating in Global Links' filing of the federal lawsuit late last month.

"We could either accept that we were just one small company attempting to take on a massive organization and retreat, or we could fight," Dobrucki wrote to shareholders last month.

(NEWS) DTCC has stalled BCIT 7 TIMES because of the potential loses to brokers involved in fouling up BCIT trades....In my view this the sole reason for the holdup. And it IS A TOTAL OUTRAGE! I HAVE LOST ALL FAITH IN THE SYSTEM COMPLETLY.... THE HIGH LEVEL OF CORRUPTION THAT PERVADES BEHIND CLOSE DOORS (SHORTING, REPOS, FAILURE TO DELIVER ETC.) THAT IS ALLOWED TO CONTINUE BY REGULATORS AND THE BROKERS SICKENS ME!!!!!!!!
NOW YOU KNOW WHY DICK GRASSO WAS PAID IN THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN MY VIEW. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE REAMING OF BCIT IT SHOULD BE CLEAR GRASSO ISN'T THE ONLY BOUGHT AND PAID FOR STOOL PIGEON ON WALL STREET. ALL IMO. WHERE'S THE PRESS ON THIS...YOU GUYS SEEM TO BE MORE PREOCCUPIED COVERING PICS OF BRITTNEY'S SN@TCH. INSTEAD OF BILLIONS LOST EVERY SINGLE DAY BY THE SMALL INVESTOR. --MONEYMADE

David. I have heard today that Mr. Megas is in the process of putting something out for shareholders to view and get from his opinion, where we are and what we have done to comply and "potential recourse action to take". After being stonewalled by seven DTC persons the "General" is fed up with the tactics going on and is going to put up the pistols and go to a nuclear approach with some "heavy hitting" law firm out of NYC. He's through with being "Mr. Nice Guy."
