Canada Coal Clarifies Interest in Evaluating Opportunities in Medical Marijuana

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Canada Coal Inc. (the "Company" or "Canada Coal"), (TSX VENTURE:CCK) announces that pursuant to a review conducted by the Staff of the Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC"), the OSC has requested that the Company clarifies certain statements made by the Company in its April 14, 2014 press release announcing that the Company was evaluating opportunities in the medical marijuana ("MM") space.

The Company continues to explore potential opportunities in the MM field although, at this time, the Company has not entered into any form of letter of intent or definitive agreement in respect to any transaction. The Company's efforts, to date, have focused on conducting due diligence on a potential target company that has applied to be a "Licenced Producer" under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations ("MMPR"). Such target company has not, to date, received such a licence from Health Canada. The obtaining of such license would be a condition precedent to any transaction the Company may enter into.

In respect to any transaction the Company may pursue in the MM field, the Company cautions as follows: (i) the Company is still in an early stage of exploration into potential MM business opportunities and there can be no assurance that any such projects in the industry will be successfully completed; (ii) the Company confirms that it has no intention to apply for a MMPR licence directly; rather, the Company (as stated in its April 14, 2014 press release) is focused on acquiring a target that has received such a licence from Health Canada; (iii) at this time, the Company cannot quantify the time frame and costs associated with entering the MM field since the Company is still at a preliminary stage of investigation; (iv) any transaction to acquire a MM business will be subject to board of director, shareholder and regulatory approval including that of the TSX Venture Exchange; (v) furthermore, at this time, the Company's board of directors has not passed any resolution to approve entry into the MM field, or to authorize the Company to amend its principal business; (vi) that Health Canada has stringent licensing requirements applicable to all entities that obtain a MM licence, including significant infrastructural requirements of attaining and maintaining a licence (such as an indoor growing facility with physical barriers, visual monitoring, recording devices, intrusion detection, air filtration systems, as well as other important controls around distribution and access); and (vii) that any facility meeting the rigorous licensing requirements of Health Canada must be available for inspection by Health Canada before any licence can be granted.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of D...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

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.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
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.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
