Surfer Arrested on Galveston Island

It was reported by a few news outlets that a surfer was arrested off the shore of Galveston, Texas for not following evacuation orders and surfing the large waves created by Hurricane Rita.

Reports stated that he was taken into custody after leaving the water by Galveston Police.

Should the police involve themselves in a case of a citizen not following mandatory evacuation orders?

That is a double edged sword.

The authorities have the power to forcibly remove and arrest any individual, for their own safety, when their actions endanger their own life.

I have never heard this happening during an approaching hurricane, but it has happened now.

Doesn’t this person have the right to choice when it comes to his desires and interests? That is not a question I am in the position to answer.

But look at the other side of the coin.

If the authorities had allowed the man to surf to his heart’s content, and he had been injured or perhaps killed, what would have happened?

Some may have blamed the police for not looking out for the person. Others would say it was the police’s fault for not doing their job.

I think the police have better things to do than look out for this guy. If he was stupid enough to surf an approaching hurricane, he gets what he deserves.

Surfing is a sport, and people have the right to participate to their heart’s content, but they should use their your head.

Kudos goes out to the police for arresting this guy. I guess his actions will inspire some to surf and others to rally around him. “To each his own,” as my late father would have said.

I think he should thank the police for looking out for him.

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.
