LARGO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Garb Oil & Power Corporation (OTC Pink: GARB) (PINKSHEETS: GARB) On June 18, 2014, the Company entered into a material contract, a Capital Lease Purchase Agreement for the Largo commercial property located at 1185 Gooden Crossing, Largo, FL. The agreement's purchase amount is $1,385,000 and the monthly lease amount is $7,000 for the 16,838 square feet portion of the property with $5,000 monthly being recognized as principal payments toward the total purchase price of the entire complex. As a capital lease, the full $1,385,000 will be recognized as an asset on the Company's balance sheet on the date occupancy begins. The commercial property site has a total of 55,785 square feet of Office and Warehouse space located on 2.51 acres of land for the Company to occupy 16,838 square feet of the space on or before August 1st. The 16,838 square feet of warehouse space that is currently being utilized by the seller that will be made available for occupancy is sufficient to house the Company's corporate staff, especially the office space required to fully staff the corporate Sales and Marketing Department. The available warehouse space being occupied is sufficient to warehouse and sell new truck tires. The term is for six months through January 31, 2015. Contractually the purchase is to be closed during the month of January 2015 to allow the seller to complete their Christmas Holiday seasonal sales period prior to moving.
Company management is negotiating to purchase a company that produces medical marijuana related paraphernalia products and generates profitable income to become a part of the Company's Medical Marijuana Division. The Company's on-site due diligence team is scheduled to travel to the targeted medical marijuana related paraphernalia products company prior to the middle of next month.
The $509,900 "As-Is" Asset Purchase for the Reddick, Florida industrial manufacturing property and remaining equipment to produce wood pellets continues to move forward to closing. An environmental inspection is scheduled for Wednesday, June 25, 2014. The title company has produced the title commitment for the property.
The Company is engaged in the interview process to add additional officers and directors to the Company during the audit process that is required to once again become SEC reporting and elevation above the OTC Pink Current Tier.
The Company has received a number of shareholder emails indicating confusion pertaining to the reverse split and other changes announced on June 16, 2014. The change in the number of authorized Company Common shares is not dependent upon the stated reverse split amount. The number of authorized Common shares was reduced from 50 billion to 75 million based on the Company's forecasted need of available Common shares to publically fund acquisitions to move the Company forward including elevating above the OTC Pink Current Tier. The change in the conversion rate of the Company Preferred Class B shares was viewed to be in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders considering prior to this change, had the change not occurred Preferred Class B shares would have continued to be converted without regard to the Common's trading price per share.
Tammy Taylor, company Chief Executive Officer and President stated "The reverse split applies to all common shareholders, including Garb management. Management intends to retain all shareholders after the reverse split through increasing assets, revenue and continuing to expand its business plan. Revenue will be the primary resource relied upon to move the company forward. We have continued to work tirelessly to put into place the building blocks necessary to transform Garb into a fully operating company."

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
