Car Wash vs....the weather...

On Saturday, April 23, the VCU Urban Studies Student Association held a very successful car wash in order to raise funds that were missing to throw Dr. Moeser and Dr. Johnson a retirement party on the 6th of May.

When the car wash was scheduled, rumour had it that a chance of rain might throw off our plans. That was before it poured the entire day on Thursday, and the forecast changed to denote a wet weekend through Saturday night. Ukrop's hadn't gotten back to us about a rain date, so we braved the prediction and showed up armed with shammies, soap & whatnot all the same.

9:45 We were all a little late, except for Amy, but we still managed to set up by about 10am. Weak water pressure and grey skies did little to intimidate us. There was some standing around to be had by all.

10:30 We washed Jeremiah's car. A few times. A nice man gave us the keys to a Ukrop's Delivery van and a ten dollar bill and told us to move it to the side of the parking lot when we were done.

11:30 I took my turn at sign duty; stood out on Broad St with a flourescent green poster. Right away a gentleman nodded at pointed at the parking lot entrance to let me know he was heading for a wash. I was easily misled by this event. The next time I turned behind me I saw a scene reminiscent of "Lord of the Flies," shammies hung to dry on tree limbs, grocery-go-getters attempting to maneuver around students splayed on pavement.

12:30 A lunch rush of sorts. Cars were lined up four at a time for a good wash. Who would have thought that 10am on a Saturday would have been too early to start?

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.
