NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Stock Market Alerts.

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 18, 2006) - Stock Market Alert's performance stock list includes: VIASPACE Incorporated (OTCBB: VSPC), Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU), Lumera Corporation (NASDAQ: LMRA) and Boeing (NYSE: BA).

Once again, VIASPACE Inc. (OTCBB: VSPC) released additional news that should continue to keep the attention of speculative investors this morning. Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company, dedicated to commercializing proven technologies from NASA and the US Department of Defense, issued a press release announcing that it has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on an Automated Threat Detection System based on a novel approach using image processing and automated reasoning techniques of both video and infrared surveillance data.

This news may get the attention of traders. VIASPACE's proprietary technology is used to automatically detect items such as suicide bombs concealed under clothing at distances up to 100 m away. "VIASPCE is solidifying its patent position on this important technology," states VIASPACE CEO Dr. Carl Kukkonen. "The objective is to automatically detect and track threats in real-time."

VIASPACE is targeting homeland security and defense markets, but the technology can also be applied commercially to detect theft and pilferage. Security applications include scanning entrances to critical infrastructure such as government buildings and nuclear power plants; transportation facilities including airports, docks and subway entrances; boarder crossings; and other high traffic locations such as sporting events, concerts and public gatherings.

This continues to be a stock for speculative investors to watch! In addition to VIASPACE's potential in the area of Homeland Security, the company also shows tremendous potential in the area of Fuel Cells for laptops and other electronic devices through its Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Corporation (DMFCC) subsidiary.

DMFCC focuses on producing methanol fuel cartridges that will provide the energy source for laptop computers, cell phones and other portable devices to be powered by direct methanol fuel cells. These fuel cell powered devices are expected to be introduced into the marketplace by major electronic product manufacturer.

Fuel cells are expected to gain a substantial market share because they offer longer operating time as compared to current lithium ion batteries and may be instantaneously recharged by simply replacing the disposable fuel cartridge. It has been announced that direct methanol fuel cells are being developed for portable electronic applications by companies such as Samsung and LG in Korea, and by Toshiba, NEC, Hitachi and Sanyo in Japan.
