OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- Stria Capital Inc. (TSX VENTURE: SRA) ("Stria" or "the Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with AGR-O Phosphate Inc. of Vancouver, British Columbia to acquire 100% of Pueblo Lithium LLC, and its Wilcox Lithium Project. The Wilcox Project is comprised of 61 lode mining claims located in Cochise County, Arizona.
"The pairing of the Wilcox Project to our Pontax Lithium property in the James Bay region of northern Quebec provides us with a critical foundation from which to construct a globally competitive enterprise focused on lithium and green energy technology minerals," said Stria President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Economo.
"In management's view, the inevitable rebound in demand from the renewable energy sector during the next decade - from India and China in particular - holds the potential for emerging lithium producers and lithium-based product developers today to compete for supply contracts in tomorrow's EV battery and consumer electronics markets," Mr. Economo said.
He added that Stria's next steps towards advancing its projects included procuring exploration and development financing and the addition of technical expertise to complete its resource management component.
Terms of the purchase agreement
Under the Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement"), Stria agrees to purchase from AGR-O Phosphate Inc. (the "Vendor") and the Vendor agrees to sell, assign and transfer to Stria 100% of Pueblo Lithium LLC in consideration for a payment of $60,000, $30,000 of which is to be paid on signing of the Agreement and the remaining $30,000 to be paid no later than April 1st, 2014.
The acquisition by Stria of Pueblo Lithium LLC from the Vendor is subject to various terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement, including Board approval and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V"). The Agreement constitutes a "Non Arm's Length Party" transaction under the policies of the TSX-V given that Mr. Robin Dow, a Director of Stria, is also President and CEO of the Vendor.

Prior to the TSX-V approval on December 17, 2013 of the Company's acquisition of the Pontax-Lithium property, in Quebec, as the Company's qualifying transaction, Stria had been a Capital Pool Company.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
