Yes, I like it too. I've been able to ride the roller coaster and make some money over the past couple of months. It's very volitile, and I've been buying at .0019 and selling in the high .002's quite a bit.

Vemics, Inc. and EP Global Communications, Inc. to Offer First Real-Time On-Line Interactive Education Program on Epilepsy Preparedness 8:30a ET April 3, 2007 (Business Wire) Vemics, Inc. (Pink sheets:VMCI), a leading provider of hosted, real-time on-line collaboration and learning applications, today announced that EP LiveOnline(TM), a joint venture with EP Global Communications, distinguished publisher of EP Magazine, will launch its first real-time on-line interactive education program on epilepsy preparedness this June. The program is made possible by corporate sponsorship and is targeted to consumers, families, physicians, nurses, teachers and therapists involved in the care and development of children and adults with disabilities and special health care needs, particularly epilepsy.
"No where else on the Internet is it possible to truly interact with some of the world's best known physicians and specialists in this disease," said Fred Zolla, CEO of Vemics, Inc. "This latest special educational program continues to validate the success we are seeing in the delivery of educational information to a broad spectrum of groups in health care and other industries, reinforcing the value of connecting with thought and opinion leaders without the need for expensive travel. We augment the marketing materials of the companies we are working with by providing a real-time interactive venue for those who have questions regarding what to do should a child or adult they are with experience a seizure. We believe it is truly an exceptional service we are offering to the public."
Joseph Valenzano, Jr., President and CEO of EP Global Communications added: "The programs have the support of many Epilepsy Foundation Chapters across the United States, as well as the Family Resource Network of New Jersey and other related organizations. Epilepsy is something that can occur at birth or be the result of a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. and providing this type of information free-of-charge to parents, teachers and health care professionals expands on the success of earlier programs that we have delivered sponsored by companies and organizations in the area of cerebral palsy, movement disorders and other conditions. In this particular program, we are highlighting the need for families to have a seizure preparedness plan and to be able to execute that plan on behalf of their loved ones. As anyone with epilepsy will say, their greatest fear is the next seizure, so being prepared for it is a must."
Both Valenzano and Zolla note that these industry sponsored programs are designed and presented by some of the most renowned physicians, allied heath care professionals and researchers in the world along with families and caregivers willing to share their ideas and experiences. Most programs offer valuable Category I CME and/or CEU credits - and they are easily accessed online for no charge for the seminar and the accreditation. They are available either as fully interactive two-way audio/video and chat; one-way streamed audio/video with e-mail chat or as a digitally archived program available 24/7 to registered participants.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition that makes people susceptible to brief electrical disturbances in the brain that results in seizures. These seizures can be a momentary disruption of the senses, short periods of unconsciousness or "staring spells' or convulsions. All are caused by a sudden change in how the cells of the brain send electrical signals to each other. A physiological condition, epilepsy is not a mental disorder and can be caused by anything that affects the brain, including tumors, strokes as well as head traumas. In some instances epilepsy is inherited while in others no cause is found.

ITEM 6. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION In this section, "Management's Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operation," references to "we," "us," "our," and "ours" refer to EP Global Communications, Inc., and its consolidated subsidiaries.
Critical Accounting Policies:
Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that
affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We based our estimates on historical experience and on other various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
Plan of Operation:
EPGL is on the brink of its most expansive growth in its 36-year history, with never-before streams of revenue and innovative projects under way that will globally impact, far into the future, what is done for people with disabilities and special needs and for the families, professionals, and other support people who care for them. We believe that a key result of these initiatives will be the continued worldwide evolution of the awareness of the abilities and potential of people with disabilities and special needs. We anticipate that EP's cutting-edge education outreach and multiple forums for communication (e.g.: EP LiveOnline™; and Search & Respond in EPmagazine and on the new, expanded EP Web site, www.eparent.com..to be launched in May 2007) will continue to establish links among families and professionals to enhance knowledge bases regarding specific disabilities and to provide the most up-to-date strategies for optimizing individual lives and well-being.
Management intends to expand EP's 36-year heritage of providing "Information That Matters from People Who Care" to the community of those with disabilities and special needs. EPmagazine represents the foundation of all that we do. Most of our efforts up to the beginning of 2007 have been directed to this purpose. Our focus is entirely in the arena of chronic long-term conditions, not disease states. The significance of this is that diseases for the most part can be cured with various medical interventions and surgery. Chronic life-long conditions are different. There are no cures for these and so the challenge is to improve upon the quality of life and assist people with special needs to develop into the very best they can be and help make them contributing members of our society. A corollary to this is to increase awareness of all Americans that we will become a stronger nation and a better people when we learn to regard those with specials needs as people to be respected, not problems to be confronted. That is an underpinning of everything we do.
In 2006, we completed the investment, building and implementation of a dynamic growth strategy to increase revenues and profitability for 2007 and beyond, with a three-point initiative:
Emphasize our core publishing operations, including advertising, subscription growth, and the development of our custom communications and special project capabilities. Augment our staff in this arena and invest in building credible databases
Increase growth of our Joint Venture with Vemics, Inc., called EP LiveOnline™, diversifying from the clinical and medical arenas into financial planning, education, assistive technology, and augmentative communications and mobility, as well as human resource management. Expand the "network" of sites we have been building and diversify into other areas besides healthcare. Include the U.S. Military as a major focus of our activities
Leverage our strength in key web-based communication programs such as the development of specific disability topics directed to specific disability organizations: e.g. - EP on CP (Cerebral Palsy); EP on Epilepsy; EP On Mobility; etc. Because of our unique, time-tested, and strong relationships with key disability-related organizations and our reputation with medical thought and opinion leaders in the field, we believe this will be a natural course for us to follow, once we finalize the new design and implementation of our Web site, scheduled for launch in May 2007.
Management forecasts significant growth beginning in the second quarter of 2007 for EP's core services, consisting of ad revenue, custom communications, and EPGL special project segments, as well as our innovative, online, interactive educational programs. Examples of our growth to date and future plans follow:
