xodyne leads to Blackmotor Corporation to closed

Image
After Trisha Woods and James Black left Tree Top Industries and then the collapse of the Company it would appear that Xodyne Corporation has taken on a similar fate.  The shares certificates that were issued by Prima Capital Group Inc., just might be wallpaper.
Now it appears that all  have surfaced again as Blackmotor Corporation with a possible association and financed through President Corporate Group and managed through Northwest Management. More to follow.  It now appears that Blackmotor Corporation has also shut down as of Dec. 1 2011.  We will see what James Black can come up with for 2012 for a another company in this never ending story?
Looks like they are back at it again in the drone business and with Trisha Woods too!

Sprint Corp will report its first-quarter results as it continues to step up new promotions and pricing plans to attract subscribers in the middle of its turnaround plan. REUTERS/MARIO ANZUONI Sprint Corp (S.N) will not join the U.S. government's auction of airwaves set for early 2016, as it has adequate airwaves to currently build out its network and for its future needs, the company said on Saturday. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is gearing up to auction off valuable 600 megahertz airwaves that can travel long distances and penetrate buildings, to wireless carriers, which are clamoring for faster speeds for data-guzzling customers. Sprint will not participate as its current holdings of airwaves are "sufficient" for its ongoing network upgrade effort and to serve customers in the future, it said in a statement, making it the first U.S carrier to announce it will sit out of the auction. &…

5 Ways Reading Makes You a Better Leader The Science Behind Reading and Influence
Pollsters say reading is in decline. As an author and former publishing executive, the statistics make me wince. But I’m optimistic for another reason.
Courtesy of iStock/mattjeacock Why? A readership crisis is really a leadership crisis. And for people who know how to respond, crisis is just another way of saying opportunity.
I’ve been a serious reader for decades: business and personal development, history, the Bible, current events, theology, philosophy, and even some fiction. I’m a content glutton. It’s part of who I am. And it’s also enabled me to become the leader I am.
I’m not alone. I know very few leaders who are uninterested in reading. And some CEOs are famous for their libraries and wide-ranging interests. Steve Jobs was, for one example, obsessed with the poet William Blake.

Worldpay rejects Ingenico bid as it decides to launch IPO 18 Sep 15 | Author The saga involving a potential takeover bid for Worldpay has ended after the British payment processor decided to launch an IPO on the London Stock Exchange and looks to raise £890 million.
Worldpay specialises in processing and securing payments for a range of local and international businesses, including Google and Sony.
The company claim to process 31 million payments every day, the equivalent of 360 a second. Profits increased during the first half of the year, rising 13 per cent to £182.6m.
Worldpay will now be expected to pay 20 to 30 per cent of its profits in dividends to its shareholders, with the first instalment taking place in late 2016.

REUTERS/BECK DIEFENBACH A significant number of Apple Inc customers are reporting their mobile devices have crashed after attempting to upload the new iOS 9 operating system, the latest in a line of launch glitches for the tech giant.
Twitter and other social media were awash with disgruntled customers reporting two distinct faults, with one appearing to be linked specifically to older models of Apple iPhones and iPads.

Worldpay takeover update: Ingenico enters auction with £6 billion bid 10 Sep 15 | Author | M&A | Banking | Cards | Online solutions

As Worldpay executives mull over a potential IPO, payments processor Ingenico looks to put a spanner in the works by offering well over £6 billion in a fresh takeover bid, with the French company including a break fee in case the deal falls through.
Is a payments ‘super group’ on the cards?
According to Sky News, Ingenico submitted a revised bid to Worldpay earlier this week, with the new terms including a cash-only deal which includes a break fee giving Advent International and Bain Capital, Worldpay’s parent companies, greater peace of mind if they eventually decide to sell their company.
Igenico hope to purchase its rival in order to create a combined payments company worth well over £11bn, only after receiving approval from its shareholders.
Reports last week suggested that Igenico has received backing from multiple financial institutions…

The fourth generation of Apple TV, which is expected to launch this month with much deeper Siri integration, is reported to retail for between USD149 and USD199.
