About The NYSSA
The New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA) has educated and inspired investment professionals since 1937, providing them with a unique forum for the exchange of ideas and information. NYSSA's founders included Benjamin Graham, "the father of security analysis" and one of the most influential men in the history of finance. As a not-for-profit educational organization, NYSSA's twin goals are to inform and educate investors; and to advance the professional competence of investment professionals, including security analysts, portfolio managers, investment advisors, and others involved in the investment process.
In October of 2004, President Bush signed the 2005 Homeland Security Appropriations Act, which provides $28.9 billion in discretionary spending for the Department of Homeland Security--$1.8 billion more than the 2004 level and a 6.6% increase over the previous year. A total of $40.7 billion will be available to the department in 2005.
Project BioShield will have an additional $2.5 billion in 2005 for medical countermeasures against weapons of mass destruction, and improved bio-surveillance for biological agents in high-threat cities and high-value targets such as stadiums and transit systems. With overall spending up, many public stocks in the homeland security industry are thriving.
Billions more dollars are being invested to protect the world's homes, food supply, mail service, airlines, data, and people. Some researchers anticipate that the homeland security industry will grow to more than $170 billion in 2006.

Each treatment application employs the use of a proprietary technology known as the Hemopurifier(TM), which is designed to rapidly reduce the presence of infectious disease and toxins in the body.
