Wall Clock is Easier to See - Designed by InventHelp Client (FRO-187) Oct 1, 2014 06:20PM

PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) October 01, 2014

"While traveling I have trouble seeing the radio clocks in hotel rooms," said an inventor from Fresno, Calif. "One night I wondered why I couldn't just wake up at night and see the clock, so when the inspiration from God came through I decided that there needs to be a method of reducing draftiness in homes during cold weather."

The Wall Clock can be seen more easily than conventional radio clocks. This ensures that the user knows what time it is immediately, as well as avoids hassle and frustration. Producible in design variations, the clock is ideal for businesspeople, travelers and people with impaired vision.

The original design was submitted to the Fresno office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 13-FRO-187, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368.

Kirby McInerney Announces That a Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed on Behalf of Altair Nanotechnologies, Inc. Investors Oct 1, 2014 06:20PM

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kirby McInerney LLP announced today that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who acquired Altair Nanotechnologies, Inc. (“Altair” or the “Company”) (OTC: ALTI) securities during the period from May 15, 2013 through September 4, 2014 (the “class period”). Pursuant to applicable law, investors have until November 25, 2014 to file a motion to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the investor lawsuit.

The lawsuit charges that during the class period the Company lacked adequate controls to perform a timely and accurate review of transactions in its subsidiaries at an appropriate level of precision and to ensure timely filings in compliance with its financial reporting requirements. On September 4, 2014, the Company revealed that Crowe Horwath LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, resigned. According to the Form 8-K that the Company filed with the SEC, Crowe indicated that it was resigning due in part due to the Company’s lack of controls and procedures to ensure accurate and timely communications between the Company's operations teams in China and its U.S.-based accounting team. As a result of this disclosure, NASDAQ halted trading of Altair's shares on September 4, 2014 at $4.30 per share.

Altair shares resumed trading on September 24, 2014, and closed that day at $0.95.

If you acquired Altair securities during this period and you are interested in learning more about this matter and any rights you might have with respect to these claims, contact Andrew McNeela, Esq. at amcneela@kmllp.com or Wilona Karnadi at securitiescases@kmllp.com, by telephone at (212) 371-6600, or by filling out this form. Please bear in mind that some of these rights may be time-sensitive.

Kirby McInerney LLP is a New York-based plaintiffs’ law firm concentrating in securities, whistleblower, antitrust and consumer litigation. The firm has specialized in complex litigation, including securities class actions, for several decades. Kirby McInerney LLP has repeatedly demonstrated its expertise in this field, and has been recognized by various courts that have appointed the firm to major positions in consolidated and multi-district litigation.

Time Extended to Oct. 8 to Apply for MTC Policy Advisory Council Vacancies Oct 1, 2014 06:16PM

OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Metropolitan Transportation Commission – the Bay Area's transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency – is recruiting interested Bay Area residents to fill three vacancies on its Policy Advisory Council. MTC has extended the deadline for applications through Wednesday, October 8. Vacancies are for representatives of disabled and senior or low-income interests. Applicants representing senior or disabled interests must reside or work in Marin or Santa Clara counties. Applicants representing low-income interests must reside or work in San Mateo County. The Council meets the second Wednesday of the month from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in Oakland, and advisors are reimbursed for their transportation to and from the meeting.

The Policy Advisory Council was created by the Commission in November 2009 to advise MTC on transportation policies in the San Francisco Bay Area, incorporating diverse perspectives relating to the environment, the economy and social equity. The Council advises MTC on a range of dynamic topics, including:

  • Regional planning efforts linking transportation, housing and land-use plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Public transit service productivity improvements to produce more efficiency from the region's existing transit investments.
  • Pursuit of new revenues to support a transportation system that better serves all Bay Area residents.

"The Commission wants and needs to hear various viewpoints when making transportation policy and investment decisions," said MTC Chair Amy Rein Worth. "Incorporating different perspectives enhances our decision-making process. The Policy Advisory Council helps the Commission to improve mobility for all Bay Area residents."

Applications for the three vacancies will now be accepted through October 8, 2014. No specific educational background is needed for most seats – just a background in the specific application category, and an interest in transportation and how it affects residents in the nine Bay Area counties. Experience working on public policy issues or community-related issues is desirable. Appointed advisors are expected to attend monthly meetings at MTC's offices in Oakland and will serve through the term ending in July 2017. While positions are voluntary, advisors do receive a small stipend for their attendance at certain meetings.

MTC's appointing Commissioners will review the applications, and the full Commission is scheduled to approve selections in November. The selected applicants will attend their first meeting on December 10, 2014. To apply for a vacant position or to learn more about the Policy Advisory Council, visit www.mtc.ca.gov/get_involved/advisory, call 510.817.5757, or visit the MTC offices at 101 Eighth Street, Oakland, during regular business hours.

Black Diamond Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid for Its Common Shares Conducted as an Automatic Securities Purchase Plan Oct 1, 2014 06:15PM

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/01/14 -- Black Diamond Group Limited ("Black Diamond" or the "Company") (TSX: BDI) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has accepted Black Diamond's Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") to purchase for cancellation, from time to time, its common shares (the "Common Shares") through the facilities of the TSX. Black Diamond has entered into an "automatic securities purchase plan" (as defined under applicable securities laws) with Raymond James Ltd. (the "ASPP") for the purpose of making purchases under the Bid. Such purchases will be determined by Raymond James Ltd. in its sole discretion, without consultation with Black Diamond, having regard to the price limitations, the daily purchase limitations and other terms of the ASPP and the rules of the TSX. Conducting the Bid as an ASPP allows Common Shares to be purchased at times when Black Diamond would otherwise be prohibited from doing so pursuant to securities laws and its internal trading policies. It is intended that a maximum of 3,685,786 Common Shares, being approximately 10% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, which are not held by insiders of the Company, on the date hereof will be purchased for cancellation under the Bid. As of the date hereof, 42,947,122 Common Shares are issued and outstanding. The price which any Common Shares will be purchased will be the prevailing market price of the Common Shares on the TSX at the time of such purchase.

The Bid will commence on October 6, 2014 and will terminate on October 5, 2015 or such earlier time as the Bid is completed or terminated in accordance with the ASPP.

Management of Black Diamond believes that, from time to time, the market price of the Common Shares may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Common Shares and that at such times the purchase of Common Shares would be in the best interests of Black Diamond. Such purchases will increase the proportionate interest of, and may be advantageous to, all remaining Common Shareholders. In addition, the purchases may increase liquidity to Black Diamond's shareholders wishing to sell their Common Shares.

The actual number of Common Shares that may be purchased for cancellation and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by Raymond James Ltd., subject to a maximum daily purchase limitation of 26,330 Common Shares which equals 25% of Black Diamond's average daily trading volume for the previous six months of trading (105,322 Common Shares per day).

Treat Family and Friends to an Evening of Snack-tastic Treat Making with What's New from Nostalgia Electrics Oct 1, 2014 06:15PM

Green Bay, WI (PRWEB) October 01, 2014

Nostalgia Electrics has always been about capturing the warmth and familiar comfort of favorite childhood foods. Staying true to its roots, the Electric S'mores Makers from Nostalgia Electrics make indoor s'mores a reality, while the new Gummy Candy Maker makes homemade sweet, fruit-flavored gummy candies a fun possibility.

Sometimes it rains, sometimes it snows, and sometimes it's just too darn cold to bear the elements. Fortunately, the Electrics S'mores Makers are perfect for when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Available in two sizes, these wonderful new units from Nostalgia Electrics provide the humble pleasure of ooey-gooey marshmallow and chocolate mashed between two graham crackers, no matter what the weather outside is doing.

"Living in the Midwest, the weather can be wild and hard to predict," says Rob Houston, Director of Product Development. "Sometimes we have sunshine in the morning, but it can quickly turn to wind and rain by midafternoon. This is precisely why my kids are so excited to have this unit around the house. They have always loved s'mores, but preparing a bonfire can take a lot of planning."

With the Electric S'mores Maker, forget the hassle of building a bonfire and those pesky mosquitos! Both units are designed as simple-to-operate appliances: Just plug in, turn on, and roast marshmallows to perfection. The housing and top cover are a durable stainless steel, and come with two or four stainless steel roasting forks, as well as four storage compartments to keep s'mores supplies easily accessible. To round it out, the electric heater is flameless, making it a safe and fun activity to do with the whole family.

For those who prefer treats that are gelatinous, translucent and shaped like bears, fish and worms, Nostalgia Electrics' Gummy Candy Makers will hit all the right sugar receptors. Available in two sizes, each unit includes four silicone molds with interlocking trays and a heated melting pot to make gummy candies at home. The larger unit includes an extra heating pot and a giant gummy bear mold.

What makes this unit so versatile is its ability to choose the ingredients that go into the gummies. Parents looking for a kid-friendly way to sneak more vitamins into their child's diet can make chewable vitamin gummies. Children will not only enjoy making the chewable vitamins, but also eating them! From sweet to sour, kids will ask to take part in the gummy making process.

Simply put, the Electric S'mores Maker and Gummy Candy Maker are fun, crowd-pleasing appliances. Whether for an occasion, or for no good reason at all, friends and family will enjoy the yummy end results.

The Electrics S'mores Makers (item #SMM300 and SMM200) are available in stores and online. The SMM300 retails at $29.99, while the SMM200 retails at $19.99.

The Gummy Candy Makers (item #GCM600 and GCM200) are also available in stores and online. The GCM600 retails at $29.99, while the GCM200 retails at $19.99.
