Do You Know the Way to San Jose?

There is something about air travel and airports that inspire blogging. Maybe, just maybe, that has something to do with the amount of "down" time not typically available during the average day at home or work.

This post originates from an Alaska Airlines jet on the tarmac in Portland, waiting to depart for San Jose. My other life, outside of the Timbers, is that of a college sports information director, which also requires quite a bit traveling, so there is a chance that Ax to the Road will have regular entries during the offseason if I find enough interesting things to relate.

For those loyal readers of ATTR, you may be curious to know that Wolfgang Puck's Tortilla Soup is now available in cans at your local supermarket. I have to say, while overpriced, it tastes just like the soup at Wolfie's O'Hare based restaurant.

The early morning travel is complete, having arrived in San Jose at 8:30 a.m. I'm at the HP Pavilion, home of the San Jose Sharks, and just peaked in on practice. The reason for this trip is Pac-10 Media Day, something that could have clearly taken place without my presence, but I'm not one to pass on complimentary beverages and lunch.

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.
