United Hunter Announces Second Appellate District, Court of Appeal, Dismissal in the Huasna Prospect and an Update on the Porter Ranch Prospect, San Luis Obispo County, California

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- United Hunter Oil and Gas Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UHO) ("UHO" or the "Company") announces that the Second Appellate District, Court of Appeal of the State of California has affirmed the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo's ruling to dismiss the writ and takings lawsuit filed by Excelaron, LLC (UHO is a 65% partner of Excelaron) in regards to the San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors denial of the permit to drill the Mankin's (Huasna) Oil Field.

UHO is currently reviewing all of its options related to the Huasna Prospect at this time, including the filing of an immediate appeal to the Supreme Court of California.

By way of update on the Company's efforts on the Porter Ranch prospect also in San Luis Obispo County (the Company has a 25% joint venture interest in Alamo Creek Oil LLC ("Alamo Creek"), an exploration stage company based in San Luis Obispo, California), Alamo Creek recently learned that the County Planning Department accepted as complete the minor use permit application on the Porter Ranch (DRC 2013-00062) proposed exploration plan. Alamo Creek, through its operator and partner in the project, Production Specialties Company, has subsequently amended that permit application to limit the exploration to a single well on the southern Pad A (the previous application sought to drill up to 4 wells) to help alleviate local concerns for the drilling of 4 wells in the area. The County is currently evaluating that amended application. The multi-disciplinary evaluations already conducted to date have concluded that no serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource could reasonably be anticipated by the drilling of these wells.

The amended one well exploratory drilling proposal in the middle of the Porter Ranch 4,000+ acres, a project that was previously approved by the County several years ago, is now being sought for two primary reasons: 1. to establish whether mineral resources in commercial quantities are accessible in the area, and 2. to collect and evaluate basic data that will provide a more accurate forecast of the necessary facilities, environmental assessments and plans needed in the event that a future production facility is proposed.

United Hunter's President and CEO, Timothy J. Turner made the following statement: "The decision by the Appeals Court is unquestionably disappointing to the Company and certainly unfortunate for the mineral interest owners being denied access to their mineral estate. Together with our other partners in this project, we will decide what alternatives we have going forward and continue to pursue those options vigorously. However, we continue our efforts to get an approval on our Porter Ranch permit request and have addressed every concern that the County has requested and hope these efforts will be successful and result in the ultimate approval for this project."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
