ADVANCED MEDICAL PRODUCTS: Changes Name; Reverse Stock Split
------------------------------------------------------------
Advanced Medical Products announced it has amended its
Certificate of Incorporation with the State of Delaware to change
the name of the Company to "ADVA International Inc." (OTC
Bulletin Board: ADII); to effectuate a 1 share for 10 shares
reverse stock split of all outstanding shares of Common Stock of
the Company; to increase the amount of authorized Common Stock,
following the effectuation of the Reverse Stock Split; and, to
authorize a new class of Preferred Stock. The new stock symbol
for the Company's common stock, effective immediately, is "ADII."
According to a Company spokesman, the name change, the reverse
stock split, and the authorization of additional common and
preferred stock were implemented in order to position the Company
for a possible reverse merger with a privately held company in an
attempt to recover some value for the Company's present
shareholders.  On March 23, 1999, Advanced Medical Products, Inc.
had filed a motion with the Federal Bankruptcy Court, District of
South Carolina, for an order authorizing the sale of all assets,
free and clear of all liens and encumbrances and other interests,
pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 363 of the bankruptcy code.  On May
11, 1999, the Company sold all of its assets.  The Final Decree
closing the bankruptcy case was issued by the Court on November
9, 1999.

A committee has been appointed by the board to review possible
candidates, but no merger agreement has been reached, and there
can be no assurances given that a suitable reverse merger partner
will be timely located, or that a suitable transaction will be
successfully negotiated or completed.


ANGEION: Adjourns Shareholder Meeting; Considering Options
----------------------------------------------------------
Angeion Corporation adjourned its shareholder meeting without
obtaining sufficient note holder response for two previously
announced transactions with ELA Medical, a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Sanofi-Synthelabo, a French pharmaceutical company,
and Medtronic, Inc.  Shareholders of the company had approved the
transactions by a two-thirds vote on February 4, 2000. The
company had adjourned the shareholder meeting until February 17,
2000 to give note holders additional time to vote on the
transactions.

"We decided to adjourn the meeting after we did not obtain
sufficient note holder response," said Richard E. Jahnke,
Angeion's President and CEO. "Angeion's Board is considering its
various options. In the meantime, we are confident that we can
continue to develop the business of Angeion's Medical Graphics
subsidiary."


ANGEION: Court Grants Motion For Summary Judgment
-------------------------------------------------
On February 17, 2000, the Honorable Marilyn Brown Rosenbaum,
Judge of Hennepin Country District Court in Minneapolis issued an
Order granting Angeion's motion for Summary Judgment in
connection with a lawsuit brought by U.S. Bank National
Association on behalf of holders of Angeion's 71/2%
Senior Convertible Notes due 2003. The Court dismissed all claims
of the plaintiff, U.S. Bank, with prejudice, ruling that certain
transactions by Angeion in 1999 did not constitute a sale of all
or substantially all of the assets under the Indenture covering
the notes, and that, therefore, note holders were not entitled to
prepayment of their notes.

Founded in 1986, Angeion Corporation acquired Medical Graphics in
December 1999. Medical Graphics develops, manufactures and
markets non-invasive cardiorespiratory diagnostic systems and
related software for the management and improvement of
cardiorespiratory health.


ATLAS MINERALS: Announces Board Changes, New Trading Symbol
-----------------------------------------------------------
Atlas Minerals Inc. (OTC: ATMR) (formerly Atlas Corporation)
announced today that it has a new trading symbol, ATMR, as result
of the Company's emergence from Chapter 11 and the change of its
name to Atlas Minerals Inc. after incorporating in Colorado.

Also, at a Directors' meeting on February 11, 2000, three new
Directors were elected to the Board of the reorganized Company.  
The three new Directors are Guillermo A. Blacker, David J.
Carroll and Henry J. Sandri.  At the same meeting, James H.
Dunnett resigned as a Director of the Company.

Further, the Company announced today the resignation of its
President, Gregg B. Shafter as an Officer and Director of the
Company effective February 22, 2000.  Mr. Shafter resigned after
achieving the successful reorganization of the Company under
Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Mr. Shafter continues to
be available to the Company as a consultant.  The Board is
considering options with respect to a replacement for Mr. Shafter
and expects to announce a decision in the near future.

Atlas Minerals Inc. is an international mining company with lead,
zinc and silver operations in Bolivia, South America.


BIG SMITH: Seeks To Extend Deadline For Filing Plan
---------------------------------------------------
The Debtor, Big Smith Brands, Inc., and the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors seek to extend the deadline for filing a plan
and disclosure statement until March 20, 2000 so that the debtor
and the Committee have time for negotiation of the terms of the
plan.


DAEWOO: GM Refuses To Include Truck, Bus Plants
-----------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp., competing with four other global car
makers for the control of Daewoo Motor Co., refused to
include Daewoo's bus and truck plants in its bidding
proposal.

David Jerome, president of GM Korea, said that the American
automaker wants to buy Daewoo's passenger car plants and
affiliated Ssangyong Motor, but is not interested in taking
over the firm's commercial vehicle operations.  Jerome's
remarks, running directly counter to creditors' wishes to
sell Daewoo's commercial and passenger plants in a single
package, are expected to sharply slim GM's chances of
winning the ongoing international bidding, analysts say.

On March 7, Chung Ju-ho, president of Daewoo Motor, told
reporters that bidders ready to acquire Daewoo's entire car
operations will be given preferential treatment, noting
that some of the five bidders expressed such an intent.
Further clouding the U.S. automaker's outlook, the GM Korea
president said that GM is not willing to propose a higher
price than rival Ford Motor.

Asked to comment on press reports that Ford offered up to
$7 billion to acquire Daewoo Motor, Jerome said that
takeover prices should not be the key criteria in
determining the successful bidder.

"Earning trust among Koreans is most important. GM is most
qualified and committed to keeping Daewoo a Korean company
even after the acquisition," said Jerome, meeting with
Korean reporters at a launching event for the "Cadillac
Deville 2000" model in Yongin, south of Seoul, Friday
evening.

Lee Kay-sup, an aide to Jerome, also explained that GM will
not consider buying Daewoo's commercial vehicle plants.
Daewoo has a truck plant in Kunsan, North Cholla Province,
and a bus plant in Pusan, which have annual output capacity
of 12,000 units and 5,000 units, respectively. Daewoo
creditors hope to include the commercial vehicle plants in
the package deal, which also covers Daewoo Motor Sale,
Ssangyong Motor, Daewoo Capital and Daewoo Telecom's
transmission division. GM, Ford, DaimlerChrysler, Fiat and
Hyundai Motor are now in the process of conducting due
diligence on Daewoo.

Amid the intensifying debate surrounding the Daewoo
auction, meanwhile, nearly 90 percent of Korean adults were
found to be opposed to a foreign takeover of Daewoo Motor,
according to a recent poll. Local intellectuals and
economists also appeared sharply divided over the economic
and industrial impact from a foreign-owned Daewoo Motor.

GENESIS DIRECT: Lowenstein Sandler To Relieve Ravin, Sarasohn
-------------------------------------------------------------
The primary attorney at Ravin, Sarasohn, Cook, Baumgarten, Fisch
& Rosen PC responsible for the debtor's Chapter 11 cases were
Kenneth A. Rosen and Jeffrey D. Prol.  Both attorneys are
currently associated with Lowenstein Sandler PC and consequently
the debtors have decided to retain Lowenstein Sandler as
substitute counsel effective as of February 12, 2000.


GEOGRAPHICS: KPMG LLP Engaged as New Auditor
--------------------------------------------
On March 1, 2000, Geographics, Inc. dismissed Moss Adams LLP as
its independent auditor and engaged KPMG LLP as its independent
auditor. The change in the company's independent auditor was
approved by its Board of Directors.

Regarding the financial statements of the company, Moss Adams had
qualified its opinion as of and for the years ended March 31,
1999 and March 31, 1998, by including a going concern
modification. Moss Adams qualified its opinion because the
company had incurred substantial net operating losses
in 1999 and 1998 and because the company was then out of
compliance with its borrowing agreements, which raised a
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

Geographics has requested that Moss Adams furnish it with a
letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission
stating whether or not it agrees with the statements the company
has filed with the SEC. A copy of such letter will be filed with
the SEC as an amendment to Geographic's initial notification
within two business days of its receipt by the company.


GOLDEN OCEAN: Seeks To Vote Shares
----------------------------------
Golden Ocean Group Limited and its debtor affiliates seek entry
of an order authorizing Golden Ocean Tankers Limited, a debtor,
to vote its shares of its subsidiaries in favor of a novation of
two ship-building contracts between Kawasaki Heavy Industries,
Ltd. and each of the subsidiaries.  The transaction involves the
construction of two very large crude carriers pursuant to which
the subsidiaries and/or the debtors who are guarantors of the
subsidiaries are obligated to pay approximately $147 million in
consideration for release from all obligations of the
subsidiaries and their guarantors under the contracts and options
to purchase the vessels at a future date for then-outstanding
indebtedness and authorizing the debtors to enter into related
agreements and take other actions as will best effectuate the
transaction.

The novation contemplates the release of substantially all of the
subsidiaries' assets.  Both subsidiaries are incorporated in
Liberia.  Consummation of the novation requires thee debtors, as
sole shareholder to vote in favor of the novation.


INCOMNET INC: Disclosure Statement Hearing
------------------------------------------
The hearing on Incomnet's Disclosure Statement is set for March
14, 2000 at 9:30 AM. The debtor has made certain changes tot he
original plan and disclosure statement.  They include that

stock in the reorganized company in lieu of a cash distribution;
and Incomnet has agreed to distribute a portion of its
distribution on account of the Intercompany Claim to entities
holding Allowed Class-7 claims, and Incomnet has expanded the
scope of the preference actions available for the benefit of
Class-7 claims.

LEVITZ FURNITURE: Extending the Exclusive Periods
-------------------------------------------------
The debtors, Levitz Furniture Incorporated et al. seek a court
order extending the exclusive periods during which the debtors
may file reorganization plans and solicit acceptances for such
plans, through and including May 31, 2000 and July 31, 2000,
respectively.  The debtors assert that an extension of the
exclusive periods is necessary to permit the debtors to finalize
plan negotiations, amend the proposed plan and exit Chapter 11.

The debtors' $260 million DIP financing facility expires in June
2000.  The debtors have expended significant time and resources
negotiating the terms of amendments to the DIP facility.  AS a
result of refinancing, a sale-leaseback transaction, the bulk
sale transaction, and the sale of additional real property, the
debtors believe that they have made significant progress in the
case.

The debtors' cases are large and complex, and for this reason
alone, the debtors believe that cause exists to extend
exclusivity.


LIVENT: Extension of Exclusivity
--------------------------------
Judge Arthur J. Gonzalez, entered an order on March 7, 2000
ordering that all parties must show cause why an order should not
be entered granting the debtors, Livent (US) Inc., et al. a court
order extending the exclusive periods during which the debtors
may file a plan of reorganization and solicit acceptances of plan
or plans of reorganization for each of the debtors. The current
expiration date of the period in which the debtors have the
exclusive right to file a plan is March 15, 2000.

company. Upon the appointment of Mr. Treglia, the company's board
consisted of the following five persons, John H. Treglia,

The appointment of Mr. Treglia as an officer and director of the
company, was made in contemplation of the company's being
reorganized through a Chapter 11 proceeding.  The company
indicates Chapter 11 was to be undertaken because, since the fall
of 1999, the company has been insolvent and dormant without any
assets or business operations.

At a meeting of the board of directors held on February 17, 2000,
Marc Feder resigned his position as a director of the company.

against the Read-Rite and certain of its officers and directors.  
In one suit, covering a class of plaintiffs who purchased Read-

refiling their case. The other class action, covering a group of
plaintiffs who purchased Read-Rite stock during the period from
March 2, 1996 through June 2, 1996, was also dismissed, but the
court gave the plaintiffs in this case thirty (30) days to file
an amended complaint in an attempt to remedy deficiencies in
their prior pleadings.

"We are obviously delighted with the decision", said Cyril
Yansouni, chairman and chief executive officer, "We have always
believed that the company, its officers and its directors had
meritorious defenses in these actions."

drives. The company is headquartered in Milpitas, California and
