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.

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.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
