  Like Old Clamshell, New Big Mac Container Made by Mormon Firm
About 30 years after Jon Huntsman's Huntsman Chemical Corporation manufactured the first McDonald Big Mac Clamshell container, another Mormon-run firm is making a new container for the sandwich. Baltimore, Maryland-based EarthShell Corp., is just weeks away from completing McDonald's validation testing on the new container. But this time, the container isn't likely to be criticized for its effect on the environment.

  Despite runup in EarthShell, MSI off 1.5%
In spite of large increases and heavy interest in EarthShell Corp., the environmentally-friendly food service packaging manufacturer, the Mormon Stock Index fell 1.5%, but still not as much as the broader NASDAQ index. The worst performance of the week came from Micrel Semiconductors, which fell 27% as investors took profit in the firm. Micrel's stock recently increased when it reported strong third-quarter earnings.
