$isr CS-131 doesn't stand a chance when execs are more concerned how to rape it then sell it.

$isr LaVoy and execs have done nothing but sabotage shareholder value (PPS) to set up personal gains (see 4M options at $0.64)
$ISR Execs primary concern over their personal gains from stock of cs-131 vs. selling cs-131 leads to new investigation.
Did you know that the RAF had a James Johnson? But he was known as “Johnnie.” Channeling
get to know them. It's a great story on how to prop up science to get paid through public offerings.
John i dont know the company. thanks for telling me. .i used the slide as a digging through story.
i am not a holder of $ISR just listed out for public use what where the biggest gainers then. as HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF.
y didnt get my idea John. didnt get it.so here its again. a stock that was a high performer in the past could become again
what is more "eye catching" is the fact that your report is for 2014 and $ISR lost all those gains and then some.
$isr If the next piece of news has anything to do with exec pay or options, sell this pig. It's all they are concerned with.

1924-07-08 *The birth of Johnnie Johnson on this date in 1924 is marked on this date. He was an African American musician and composer. Born in Fairmont, West Virginia, Johnson first played piano at the age of 4. By his twenties, he was an accomplished jazz and blues player on the club circuit in Chicago, where he had apprenticed under Muddy Waters and Albert King. A self-taught musician, bandleader and composer, Johnson composed the riffs for many of Berry's most famous tunes, including "Maybellene," "Sweet Little Sixteen" and "Rock and Roll Music," which Berry transposed to guitar. Berry wrote his best-known song, "Johnny B. Goode," in tribute to Johnson. But it was Johnson who actually gave Berry his first big break. On New Year's Eve in 1952, Johnson, then fronting the his own trio in St. Louis, was stuck. His sax player fell ill and he needed an emergency replacement, so he called in his pal Berry, a promising young guitarist, to fill in. The show was a hit, Johnson asked Berry to join the band, and ...

New Year's eve, 1952. Johnnie Johnson is the leader of a Jazz quartet. The saxophone player is ill and is in the hospital. Johnnie Johnson hires a last minute replacement , Chuck Berry. Johnnie knew Chuck would be available because he was inexperienced and probably did not have a New Year's eve gig. Johnnie knew he would bring showmanship and vocals and somewhat limited guitar skills. Chuck became a permanent member of Johnnie's band. The Sax man never did recover.Neither did Johnnie Johnson. Johnny Johnson played Jazz. He played Jazz licks in the style and rhythm that became rock and roll. Chuck Berry laid down the law on how to play rock and roll guitar.Chuck's two string, double stop method is really the only thing that sounds right.everything else sounds wimpy! Chuck Berry heard these licks from Johnnie Johnson. Johnnie Johnson was playing a version of a Louis Jordan song "Caldonia". That lick,that style, became Chuck's trademark. Johnnie Johnson played on all the great Chuck Berry records. The sides ...

Compliments of my brother Johnnie Johnson. Cletus & Billy Bob Cletus is passing by Billy Bob 's hay barn one day when, through a gap in the door, he sees Billy Bob doing a slow and sensual striptease in front of an old John Deere tractor. Buttocks clenched, he performs a slow pirouette, and gently slides off first the right strap of his overalls, followed by the left. He then hunches his shoulders forward and in a classic striptease move, lets his overalls fall down to his hips, revealing a torn and frayed plaid shirt. Then, grabbing both sides of his shirt, he rips it apart to reveal his stained T-shirt underneath. With a final flourish, he tears the T-shirt from his body, and hurls his baseball cap onto a pile of hay. Having seen enough, Cletus rushes in and says, "What the world're ya doing, Billy Bob ?" "Good grief, Cletus, ya scared the bejeebers out of me," says an obviously embarrassed Billy Bob .. "But me 'n the wife been havin trouble lately in the bedroom d'partment, and the therapist suggested ...
