Hi my name is Robert Silva and I'm an intern at the Hester Street Collaborative. At the beginning I thought that we would be going to a construction site, moving bricks and wood but it was really diferrent. The Hester Street Collaborative is an Architectural Firm.

When I first came here we made our own designs and symbols in concrete.The name of the project is called Step On Your Neighorhood. The second activity that we worked on was designing a small box so we could put concrete in it. However before that we had to do measurements so that all sides could be equal.After the concrete was smooth and almost dry we put our own designs in it. The next day when it was dry we took out the screws and wood to see how our concrete design looked and we all were amazed at the results.

The next project that we did was the Garden in which our task was to help 5th graders at PS. 134 with their garden which Hester Street Collaborative and the school has been working on since last year.We helped them clean,water,and fix the garden.Also we went to a school that is across the street from the Hester Street Collaborative to help students design for benches for a playground. It was an 8th grade class.Most of them had good ideas for the benches.It took us 3 weeks to do all this, we only got to see the 8th and 5th gragers once a week.

Lunch time was my favorite time. We traveled around Chinatown but stayed near the firm. We went to eat fried dumplings, vietnamese food, chinese buffet and red bean bun which were all surprisingly delicious.

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.
