VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Elias Mines Ltd. (TSX-V: SLI), (U.S. Clearing Symbol: SELSF), (Frankfurt Exchange: EKL) announced today that ISS Proxy Advisory Services, a leading independent international corporate governance analysis and proxy advisory firm, has recommended that its clients vote the WHITE proxy for the St. Elias nominees for the Board of Directors at the Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting"). The Meeting is scheduled for December 27, 2012.
ISS made its recommendation after considering the best interests of shareholders and after reviewing the issues advanced by St. Elias and by Gilby Len Hastman and Darcy Kim Hastman, who are attempting to seize control of the St. Elias Board. The recommendations of ISS are intended to assist shareholders in making voting choices regarding proxy voting decisions.
In recommending that its clients vote FOR the St. Elias nominees on the WHITE proxy, ISS stated, among other things, that:
- Shareholders are better off by retaining the existing board.
- The dissidents have not made a compelling case that a change in control of the board is necessary or preferable to the incumbent board's oversight or strategic plan going forward.
- The dissidents have not submitted a detailed business plan and have not presented a convincing case for shareholders to support them.
"We appreciate ISS' recommendation and advise shareholders to accept their advice and vote the WHITE proxy," said Lori McClenahan, President and Chief Executive Officer of St. Elias. "Management's nominees look forward to working to advance our exploration properties and to continue to strengthen our governance, communication and operational processes for the benefit of all shareholders."
St. Elias also advised shareholders that on late Friday afternoon, the Hastmans filed a petition to the Supreme Court of British Columbia. The petition names the Company and its directors as respondents whereby the Hastmans are seeking an order that the part of the Company's articles which bar Mr. Rainbird and Mr Defreitas from being elected as directors are inoperative or of no effect for the purpose of the Meeting or, alternatively that the Meeting be rescheduled into 2013. This would have the effect of indirectly achieving the same goal. The Petition is scheduled to be heard on December 18, 2012.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in.
