Kansas Reads....to Preschoolers!


This is the week to read to preschoolers! Kudos to all, especially Vikki Jo Stewart, for making this project magical, inclusive and so worthwhile! As one librarian commented to me, "Having Kansans read the same book to preschoolers has been a positive to bring us together as a state..something sorely needed right now". Amen!

I was invited by the Sunnyside Elementary school in Olathe to read No Matter What to two groups of kindergarten and first grade children on the 14th. It was great! And what a nice school library. I had a chance to chat with librarian Phyllis Herbert and principal David Kearney who are both so enthusiastic about library service! After reading, I headed over to the Indian Creek branch of the Olathe Public Library to catch the last part of Kate Capp's baby Rhyme Time. What a neat program for 12-24 month olds! They were also doing "story on the spot" which gave kids the opportunity to have a story read to them by staff when they sat down on the big green spot in the middle of the library floor! Director Emily Baker introduced me around and gave me a tour of both the branch and the main library.

On Tuesday, I had the priviledge of reading to preschoolers at the Louisburg library. It was so much fun! But just like with grandchildren, after the story was read, it was great to turn the program back into the capable hands of the children's librarian, Elizabeth Ellis! Storytimes take ALOT of energy! While in Louisburg, director Kiersten Allen gave me a tour of the library and told me about some of the many projects they were undertaking. In addition to running a busy library, she is just finishing her Master's degree in Library Science - congratulations, Kiersten!

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.
