Lawrence block party?

Lawrence block party? Yes please. I’d like to see one day a year where Mass is blocked off between 7th and 10th streets. Allow vendors in the streets, allow bands to play, etc. Why? Because it would be fun, and another way to celebrate the treasure that is downtown. We all know how popular the St. Patrick’s day parade is, and how many people show up for that. Imagine a situation where Mass is closed all day (from 11am- 10pm, say), and there’s more to do. As to when to do this? I would say the 4th of July. For what kind of impact a truly popular 4th of July event can have, check out Bristol, RI. People can have fun on Mass street all day, then walk down to the river to watch the fireworks! Or, if it became a big enough event, with enough press, move it to a different day on the weekend, and try to get out of town business.

As to problems with this: businesses won’t like losing the approximately 200 parking spaces (that # is a guesstimate) on Mass itself. In today’s paper there is an article concerning business worries about the bike races affecting sales (although my idea doesn’t involve closing down their back lots, like the races will). To offset those concerns, maybe a Sidewalk Sale could be scheduled that day? Turning Mass street into one big blowout, and 31st & Iowa into a tumbleweed desert?

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.
