Sky Burial


A book to recommend.

Read Sky Burial by Xinran.

It's a very touching story of a Chinese woman who went into Tibet during the 60s (?) to look for her husband, who went missing together with his troop on their way to one of their stations in Tibet, amidst the tumultous times when China and Tibet were in conflict over Tibet's stoic stand for independence (my first full-stop in this paragraph --->) .

After some less-than-desirable experiences in this vast foreign land, she ended up living in Tibet for more than 20 years, and in the process, slowly become a Tibetan herself. There are slow moments in this book where the author took pains to describe typical days in the life of a nomadic Tibetan family, and even cyclical periods of the year that marked the end of a season and the beginning of the next, all without signficant changes in climates, just a shift in their routine activities. The details here are enough to give you a pretty good mental picture of their lives without being long-drawn, boring and lifelessly precise.

But heck, they never mentioned anywhere that they had a beautiful Princess of Tibet...

But the part that grabbed me the most was a three-paged explanation on her husband's death, and how one act of self-sacrifice resolved the long-standing conflict between the two people.

If nothing, read the book for this part.

One of the best three pages I have ever come across.

Take a peek of the book at . Type Sky Burial, and search.

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.
