While Forbes honors the
overall richest people and organizations in the world,
NBS100 honors only those individuals in the world of the EMw
(Electromagnetic wave) telecommunications, who have
contributed to an outstanding Scientific invention,
Development, or to a Performing Art form of achievement.
The list includes: Name, overall rank, age, net
worth, residence and sources of wealth.
This years top unique
company was the Google smart profitable browser, and
initial public offering, that gave Sergey Brin, and Larry
Page, the co-founders of Google, a side benefit: advancement
into the upper echelons of Forbes Magazine's list of the 400
richest Americans, and The NBS100's Top 20 Person of the
Week. Both lists were released during the 38th week of
2005. (September 19-25, 2005). CLICK

For the third consecutive year the
rich got richer on the NBS100 achievement award. In the 24th
annual edition of The Forbes 400, the collective net worth
of the nation's wealthiest climbed $125 billion, to $1.13
trillion. All but 26 people on our roster are billionaires.
Surging real estate and oil prices
drove up several fortunes and helped pave the way for 33 new
members (and 9 retreads). Gulf Coast oilman Tracy Krohn
landed on the list after taking his W&T Offshore
drilling operation public in January.
Developers Jorge Perez and Steven
Roth are two of the six real estate tycoons added to the
list. Another newcomer: James Leprino, who built a $1.3
billion fortune supplying cheese to pizza joints Little
Caesars and Papa John's.
The year's biggest gainer was casino
mogul Sheldon Adelson, whose net worth jumped $8.5 billion
on a big bet he's making on the peninsula of Macau, China.
Gambling is also the source of wealth for Ruth Parasol and
Russell DeLeon, a husband-and-wife team who run their online
casino, PartyGaming, from Gibraltar.
For every arrival, there is an exit.
Eight members of last year's list died, including Wal-Mart
heir John Walton, in a plane crash in June. He is replaced
by his wife, Christy. Thirty-three fortunes simply couldn't
keep pace with the rising minimum needed to get on the list,
which this year was $900 million, a $150 million jump from
2004. Among the notables on whom the curtain descended:
DreamWorks cofounder Jeffrey Katzenberg.

When pure digital
editing was first used by VRA TelePlay in the early-1980s,
it was the first big step into a major line of inquiry in
artificial intelligence, and where it came from, and
With the exception of
the Smart-Daaf group, expecially, Marconi's Dit Dah ticker
and his antenna system, and Deforest's radio tube, few
advances came to the N.B. Stubblefield, wireless telephony
patent, antenna system and hardware, (1908). When the

term was more suitable for the voice/music radio
broadcaster," said those heading the AT&T land line
