Hamamatsu to Manufacture and Market Most of Zecotek's Imaging Technologies

The image on the top right is the cover of Rolling Stonefrom 1970, depicting Charles Manson. Both covers seem in keeping with the magazine'spromise of delivering "music, album and artist news, movie reviews, political, economic and pop culture commentary, videos, photos, and more." However, the magazine has been targeted online with the hashtag #BoycottRollingStonefor its current cover story entitled"The Bomber: How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster." Some commercial chains have refused to sell the issue. Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino wrote a letter to the publisher saying "Your August 3 cover rewards a terrorist with celebrity treatment. It is ill-conceived, at best, and re-affirms a terrible message that destruction gains fame for killer and their "causes." Really? "Our hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing,"Rolling Stone said in a statement . "The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone's long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day." So how is this magazine's cover any different from another magazine usingDzhokhar Tsarnaev to sell copies?

"These products have had a shocking effect on young people and their families," Associate Health Minister Todd McClay said. "Up until now, frontline officers have had to deal with the consequences," he continued. "Now police can be proactive, and with the help of the public we can ensure that this new law is successfully enforced." McClay said he had received accounts of children as young as 11 becoming addicted to the synthetic drugs, but New Zealand's "world-leading" legislation would address the problem. "The sooner this dangerous muck is out of our dairies (newsagents) and corner stores the better," he said. Previously, authorities had to prove a synthetic drug was harmful before ordering it off the shelves. Under the new law, all synthetic psychoactive drugs will be illegal until their producers can provide clinical proof, such as toxicology reports and evidence from trial studies, that they are safe. The department of health has estimated that carrying out such tests will cost manufacturers up to NZ$2 million ($1.6 million) for each synthetic drug, effectively deterring them from trying to sell such substances in New Zealand.

Ltd. has signed a joint collaboration partnership agreement with Hamamatsu Photonics Japan to commercialize existing imaging technologies and to collaborate on the upgrade and manufacture of photo detectors, integrated detector modules (IDM) and associated electronics and data acquisition modules for the imaging markets at large. Hamamatsu is a leading developer and supplier of optoelectronics components to Positron Emission Tomography (PET)medical scanner OEM's and manufacturers, to the bio-medical industries. The company also has a strong relationship with CERN. The agreement combines the strengths of both organizations into a collaborative program, whereby Zecotek's patented and patent pending imaging technologies can benefit from the technological expertise and marketing capabilities of Hamamatsu.Hamamatsu will take over the manufacturing and marketing of most of Zecotek's proprietary imaging technologies, including the commercialization of LFS crystals, solid-state MAPD photo detectors and any other photo-detector variants innovated by Zecotek. Hamamatsu becomes the exclusive sales channel for Zecotek's patented protected LFS scintillation crystal and future generations of the scintillation material. Hamamatsu will take the lead on the technological enhancement, large-scale manufacturing and marketing of all Zecotek's imaging technologies.
