LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Verde Science, Inc. (OTCQB: VRCI), a company focused on providing advisory services to established, licensed collectives and growers in the burgeoning medical marijuana industry, and a roll out of a Research and Development opportunity in Canada, is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Pelosi, Jr. to the Company's advisory board. Mr. Pelosi has 16 years of experience in advising emerging and Fortune 500 companies in the areas of finance, infrastructure, sustainability and public policy. Mr. Pelosi will be a guest today on Business Rockstars (www.businessrockstars.com), a national AM and online radio network with more than 30 million listeners. Mr. Pelosi will discuss Verde Science and his advisory role with the Company. To listen live, tune in today at 2pm EST / 11am PST to the following: http://player.warpradio.com/CRN/index.asp?id=13917.
Mr. Pelosi is a renowned speaker on environmental policies that encourage individuals and local governments to take a more active role in conserving natural resources and reducing carbon footprints. Mr. Pelosi has spoken at conferences in Stockholm, Milan, and Amsterdam and is a contributor to Inside the Minds: Navigating Green Construction and Energy Initiatives, an anthology which provides an overview of the efforts being made to invest in renewable energy and green infrastructure.

Mr. Pelosi commented, "I am please to be joining the Verde Science team. Like Verde Science, I believe that great strides will be made in the next few years in terms of harnessing the true, measurable medicinal benefits of cannabis products. Verde and I both believe that applying traditional biotech strategies in developing specific uses of cannabis will lead to breakthroughs in treating a wide variety of medical problems. In the near future, we believe that through scientific innovation, smoking cannabis products will become obsolete and that its powerful benefits will be delivered in more traditional forms to treat disease and other medical conditions. I look forward to helping guide Verde Science in navigating the ever evolving legal and regulatory landscape as the cannabis market matures in the United States. Verde Science is positioned to be a significant and positive contributor in this industry."
Currently, Mr. Pelosi serves as Senior Vice President of Business Development at InfoUSA where he is responsible for identifying acquisitions and organizing programs to develop effective strategies for reducing waste and promoting greener practices in the market research industry.

Mr. Pelosi is a founding member of Cisco Connected Urban Development and, under the direction of Cisco CEO John Chambers, Mr. Pelosi worked with San Francisco, Birmingham, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Lisbon, Madrid and Seoul to attempt to demonstrate how network connectivity might reduce carbon emissions in urban environments.
In 2003, Mr. Pelosi was appointed by San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to the city's Commission on the Environment, which was responsible for developing policies and programs in recycling, toxics reduction, environmental justice, energy efficiency, commute alternatives, climate change, and the city's urban forest. Mr. Pelosi served as President of the Commission.
Verde Science CEO Harp Sangha added, "Mr. Pelosi has been and will continue to be a valuable member of the Verde Science advisory team. His experience and financial connections will bring value to our efforts and his vision of how this market will develop and evolve over the next several years matches ours, and we look forward to significant contributions from his involvement."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
