FPL’s investments in fuel efficiency expected to yield billion-dollar-a-year savings for customers beginning in 2014
Customers have already saved nearly $3 billion since 2002 as a result of investments in cleaner, more efficient power plants

JUNO BEACH, Fla.--June 18 2009 --Florida Power & Light Company’s investments in making its power plants among the cleanest and most efficient in the country have saved customers nearly $3 billion in fuel costs since 2002, and continued investment is expected to yield customer savings totaling $1 billion every year beginning in 2014.

FPL is a subsidiary of Juno Beach, Fla.-based FPL Group (NYSE: FPL).

The savings to date have been driven by a wide array of efficiency projects that result in lower fuel use. For example, FPL has converted older, oil-fired power plants, such as the Fort Myers and Sanford plants, to more efficient natural gas combined-cycle technology, while adding new, similar generating capacity at its Martin, Manatee and Turkey Point sites.

Anti- piracy Strategies- Digital Media Stocks in the News: Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ:DMRC ), Virgin Media (Nasdaq:VMED), USA Video Interactive Corporation (NasdaqOTCBB: USVO)

POINT ROBERTS, WA –June 19, 2009 www.DigitalMediaStocks.com , an investor
and industry portal for the digital media sector within Investorideas.com reports on new deals, technology and reports on the digital media online piracy battlefront.

June 15th- USA Video Interactive Corporation (NasdaqOTCBB: USVO) (CDNX: US.V) (Berlin: USF.BE) (Frankfurt: USF.F) announced it is developing a new educational series for the industry and investors on watermarking and anti-piracy technology solutions.
http://www.investorideas.com/News/061509c.asp

June 15th news - Virgin Media (Nasdaq:VMED) and Universal Music recently announced plans for a ground-breaking digital music service designed to bring about a rapid and permanent change in the way UK consumers buy and listen to music.

The service -- a world first -- will enable any Virgin Media broadband customer to both stream and download as many music tracks and albums as they want from Universal Music's entire catalog, in return for a great-value monthly subscription fee. Downloaded music will be theirs to keep permanently and to store on any MP3 compatible device. An "entry level" offer will also be available for customers who download music regularly, but may not want an unlimited service.

The new service reflects the shared commitment of Virgin Media and Universal Music to keep step with growing demand for online music in an increasingly digital world. In parallel, the two companies will be working together to protect Universal Music's intellectual property and drive a material reduction in the unauthorized distribution of its repertoire across Virgin Media's network.

This will involve implementing a range of different strategies to educate file sharers about online piracy and to raise awareness of legal alternatives. They include, as a last resort for persistent offenders, a temporary suspension of internet access. No customers will be permanently disconnected and the process will not depend on network monitoring or interception of customer traffic by Virgin Media.

June 15, 2009 -Digimarc Corporation (NASDAQ:DMRC ) announced it has entered into an agreement with The Nielsen Company to jointly launch two new companies that will leverage the intellectual property assets of Digimarc and the wealth of consumer and business data amassed by Nielsen. Through the creation of these joint ventures, Digimarc and Nielsen will expand and extend their existing relationship to enhance television viewing, facilitate mobile commerce, and create valuable other new opportunities for television networks and consumer brands to more deeply engage with audiences.

The company’s technology enables a wide range of solutions for deterring fraud, counterfeiting and piracy, enhancing national security, and enabling new digital media distribution and monetization models that provide consumers with more choice and access to content when, where and how they want it. Digimarc has an extensive intellectual property portfolio, with more than 525 U.S. and foreign patents, and more than 420 patents pending in digital watermarking, media identification and management, and related technologies.

The Digital Britain Report released June 16, 2009, outlines an aggressive plan for both maximizing the opportunities of Digital Britain, as well as addressing security and online piracy.
Excerpt:
“As we shift from analogue to digital networks, national to global, from standalone media to a converged media world, there are issues around security and safety that must be embraced. With new opportunities come new challenges, and it is right that international, national and domestic policy, regulatory and legal frameworks are adapted to keep pace with these changes.

By its nature, the digital world is one where self-responsibility, self-regulation and self-governance and international cooperation are central. But accepting that, there must still be appropriate safeguards, and structures which will both protect individuals but and mean it works effectively. Before people will be confident using their personal data as online currency, or fully using the internet for financial and retail transactions, they must trust that it is secure.”

Boxing and Business – How to Take a Hit, Bob and Throw Your Power Punch

The direct relationship of training to box and how it relates to business and investing strategies


DELTA, BC –June 17, 2009 – Investorideas.com founder and President Dawn Van Zant discusses the direct relationship of training to box and how it relates to business and investing strategies.

Boxing and Business
Dawn Van Zant

Yesterday I had a rough day at Investorideas.com, frustrated and felt like I had no power and control over the outcome of my business. I really wanted to just hit something.

Normally as a woman and an older woman at that, that frustration would lead to just more frustration. But I am one of the fortunate women in business who had a solution waiting for her that evening- boxing!

I told my trainer I really just wanted to hit something and that I felt like I had taken some pretty big hits in the day.
He said we could work on that.

Our training is intense and focuses a lot on endurance. It teaches me every session that I have more in me than I think. Just when I think I have nothing left, I can do 10 more push-ups (man push –ups by the way) or throw more punches or do 20 more sit-ups. There is always more in me.

He then planned the work –out on bobbing to avoid a punch and coming back poised to throw your power punch.
If any of you have done boxing training, you know that just continuous bobbing is exhausting and hard on the legs as you are always in fighting stance. But the real psychological play is being in that place mentally where you just learned how to avoid taking a hit and then you have the power to react and throw your big punch. Give them a right hook!

My coach, Greg Harrison, was smart enough to take my mental challenge, frustration and failure and turn me around physically into a scenario where it then made sense in my mind. His motto, like a lot of athletes is “strong body – strong mind”. It also correlates, quiet body- quiet mind.

After a strenuous work- out, you are so physically exhausted that you find some inner calm again.

I highly recommend the training and work out to anyone (especially women) in the investing business, as we are always taking a hit out of nowhere. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to come back fighting?

Today's Investor Idea
Defense Investing - Cyber Security: The Next Great Defense Opportunity
POINT ROBERTS, Wash., DELTA, B.C. - June 16, 2009 - www.HomelandDefenseStocks.com, a leading global investor and industry portal for the defense and security sector, within Investorideas.com, presents a follow-up to the May 6 th feature on defense stocks, "Defense Budget Winners and Losers", by Lisa Springer, CFA, as attention builds on the cyber security sector.
Cyber Security: The Next Great Defense Opportunity
Lisa Springer CFA, Equity research analyst and financial writer
Defense Stocks: Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), Raytheon (NYSE:RTN), Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC), AeroVironment (NASDAQ:AVAV), Optex Systems (OTCBB: OPXS), General Dynamics (NYSE:GD)
Many defense contractors look for huge growth opportunities in the market for cyber security. Bruce Tanner, the CFO of Lockheed Martin, recently identified cyber security as the quickest, near-term defense opportunity, with market growth well exceeding DoD growth rates. Tanner also believes cyber security margins will be comparable to DoD contracts. Lockheed has begun focusing M&A activity in the global security area and anticipates additional cyber security acquisitions this year.
Both Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) are eager to gain share in this $7.4 billion market and have formed business units to tap cyber security spending. Boeing created its Cyber Solutions division last August and Lockheed launched its cyber-defense unit last October.
To address cyber security opportunities, Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) has acquired three network security providers, plans to hire 300 certified security engineers this year, and is partnering with University of Texas researchers on new cyber solutions. Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) is also expanding cyber security capacity and was recently awarded a DoD contract for the National Cyber Range, part of a major government-wide effort to improve the nation's defense against electronic attacks.
The need for a national cyber security plan is becoming increasingly evident as cyber attacks on U.S. agencies and civilian facilities cost the U.S. billions of dollars annually. The problem is getting worse; security breaches of government and private computer networks nearly doubled last year to 72,000. In response, the government is increasing spending for cyber security, which is forecast to rise by 44% to $10.7 billion in 2013. The Bush administration launched a cyber initiative last year funded at around $6 billion and the Obama administration is making cyber security an even higher priority.
President Obama earmarked $355 billion for cyber security in his 2010 fiscal budget and also announced plans to name a cyber security czar, who will have broad authority and likely serve on the National Security Council. Last month, the White House published a cyber security report with guidelines for strategies ranging from communications networks for emergency response teams to the government’s role in protecting infrastructure. The report followed a 60 day review of current government cyber security initiatives and was ordered by Obama shortly after he took office.
Many investors think increased government spending for cyber security will offset revenues lost by defense contractors due to military spending cuts. Share prices for many defense contractors are continuing to rise despite program cuts under the new defense budget. Since early April when the new budget was announced, Lockheed shares have climbed 18%, Boeing shares have jumped 39%, General Dynamic shares have gained 34% and Raytheon shares have improved 11%. This compared to a 13% rise in the S&P 500 during the same period.
In addition, earnings for this group remain strong; most large defense contractors recorded EPS gains and increased EPS guidance after the March 2009 quarter. Lockheed Martin raised full-year guidance by 10 cents to $7.15-47.35, Northrop Grumman increased guidance by 15 cents to $4.65-$4.90, and Raytheon boosted guidance by 10 cents to $4.55-4.70. Boeing was a notable exception; earnings for its defense business fell 18% year-over-year and Boeing cut full-year guidance by 35 cents to $4.70-$5.00.
Small defense contractors providing tools for existing military operations will benefit from $130 billion in funding for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in the new defense budget. An $83.4 billion war-time supplement request has been submitted to Congress to cover Iraq/Afghanistan costs through the second half of 2009.* Full News: http://www.investorideas.com/News/061609a.asp

Wescorp Energy Inc. (OTCBB: WSCE) is an Oil and Gas solutions provider focused on deploying its water remediation and environmental technologies that overcome tough operational challenges facing oil and gas operators today on a global basis. Virtually anywhere in the world oil is produced contaminated water is produced, this includes associated formation water in conventional oil and gas production and potable water used in unconventional oil production such as the massive Oil Sands development in Alberta Canada.
