Android Tablet Opportunities for VARs/Resellers

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - AMREL, the premier rugged computer supplier, is providing unprecedented opportunities for VARs and resellers to distribute Flexpedient® AT80 rugged, Android tablets.

"This is a big deal," declared Javier Camarillo, AMREL's Senior Application Engineer. "We have structured the reseller program to make it as easy and profitable as possible."

Unlike many reseller agreements, there is no required minimum order, and no complex legal agreements.

"We keep it dead simple," he explained. "The typical reseller should be pleased with the no-hassle arrangement as well as the healthy profit margin."

The Flexpedient® Android AT80 tablet was designed to appeal to the typical end-user. Lightweight and boasting the popular Android operating system, it has demonstrated an appeal beyond the usual rugged markets.

"Typically, only the military and First Responders buy rugged computers, which are more durable than commercial systems," explained Mr. Camarillo. "Recently both consumers and enterprises have expressed interest in rugged systems. In the long run, ruggedness saves money due to reduced repair, lost work, and replacement costs."

"So far, we have received inquiries from scientists who want them for collecting field data in remote locations," stated Mr. Camarillo. "Folks want it for aviation applications. Oil & Gas companies like its impressive IP67 rating, as well as its lightweight mobility.

"Since it is easily modified, product developers have been calling us. A major league baseball club has bought the biometric version to help manage events at their park. This is a great opportunity for an aggressive reseller."

The Flexpedient® AT80 rugged tablet comes in an impressive number of colors, and can even have engraved custom logos.

Standard features include Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean), 8" 10-point multi-touch capacitive touchscreen display, front/back 5 MP cameras, 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth®.

Brad Keselowski Crew Chief Paul Wolfe Wins Second Straight MOOG® ‘Problem Solver’ Award After Wild Day at Pocono

Southfield, Michigan, August 4, 2015.A pit stop on which almost everything went wrong paradoxically helped propel Brad Keselowski and the MOOG
Steering and Suspension-equipped No. 2 Ford Fusion to a runner-up finish in Sunday's Windows 10 400 NASCAR
Sprint Cup race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway. That same problematic pit stop helped Keselowski's crew chief, Paul Wolfe, earn MOOG "Problem Solver of the Race" honors for the second straight week. MOOG is the Official Steering and Suspension of NASCAR.

Wolfe's latest MOOG award came on the basis of the Team Penske Ford's race-best 0.674-second-per-lap improvement in average lap speed over the second half while finishing on the lead lap. The Problem Solver of the Week and season-ending $100,000 MOOG "Problem Solver of the Year" awards are sponsored by global vehicle components manufacturer Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML).

Keselowski came onto pit road for what looked like a routine green-flag stop on Lap 56 (of 160), but the Ford's brakes locked up and the car slid through its pit stall. After a prolonged stop and subsequent pass-through penalty, Keselowski was running one lap down in 37

But that less-than-perfect pit stop also brought what Keselowski later said were critical adjustments to the car's MOOG-equipped chassis. After Wolfe and his crew finished their work, the 2 car was one of the fastest on the track, methodically regaining position and running in the top 10 by the closing green-flag segment. Thanks to smart pit strategy and the car's handling advantage, Keselowski was in perfect position to advance into second place when three front-runners ran out of fuel in the closing laps.

"Paul, Brad and the Team Penske crew never gave up, even when it looked like they had too much ground to make up," said Tim Nelson, director of motorsports for Federal-Mogul Motorparts. "That was a gutsy performance by the entire team and a powerful example of problem solving excellence."

Wolfe's second weekly Problem Solver award moves him into a five-way tie for second place in the battle for year-end MOOG honors. Rookie crew chief Justin Alexander (Paul Menard/No. 27 Chevrolet) still leads with three weekly MOOG awards, followed by Wolfe, Todd Gordon (Joey Logano/No. 22 Ford), Chad Knaus (Jimmie Johnson/No. 48 Chevrolet), Greg Ives (Dale Earnhardt Jr./No. 88 Chevrolet) and Richard "Slugger" Labbe (Austin Dillon/No. 3 Chevrolet) with two wins apiece.

The MOOG brand, the preferred choice of professional technicians and NASCAR crew chiefs, is in its 50
year of Cup competition. In recognition of the vital importance of steering and suspension components in overall vehicle safety and performance, NASCAR mandates that Cup teams use MOOG Problem Solver parts, specifically ball joints and tie rod ends. Cup Series champions have chosen MOOG parts for 49 consecutive years.

BioteQ Completes Water Treatment Piloting for Selenium at KSM Project

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 04, 2015) - BioteQ Environmental Technologies Inc. (TSX: BQE) has successfully completed a pilot plant campaign for the removal of selenium from waters occurring at Seabridge Gold's KSM Project located in Northwestern BC. The pilot plant was operated by BioteQ in 2014 and into the first quarter of 2015 using the company's patent-pending Selen-IX™ treatment technology. The completion of the piloting campaign within a one year timeline after the issuance of the BC Environmental Assessment Certificate on July 30, 2014 was a key condition of the certificate for Seabridge Gold and further demonstrates BioteQ's solution to treat elevated selenium concentrations in impacted waters.

Seabridge Gold Chairman and CEO Rudi Fronk stated, "Successful completion of the pilot plant test achieves a further milestone in KSM's ongoing transition from exploration to development. The success of the pilot plant confirms the technical feasibility of the treatment technology that was proposed during the recently completed KSM environmental assessment review process. The results provide further evidence that KSM has been designed to operate in an environmentally responsible manner."

BioteQ President & CEO, David Kratochvil said, "We are extremely pleased with the successful demonstration of our Selen IX™ treatment technology to reduce selenium concentrations to 1 ppb on water extracted from the KSM project site. The completion of this pilot plant further supports our business development efforts by emphasizing our commitment and capabilities in technology development in strategic areas of the overall mine water treatment market, including those projects situated in BC."
