("Southern Legacy") (TSX VENTURE:LCY) are pleased to announce that further to their press release dated May 20, 2014, they have executed a definitive arrangement agreement (the "Agreement") on July 29, 2014 pursuant to which the two companies will amalgamate.

The amalgamated company ("Amalco") will take the name of "Regulus Resources Inc." and will maintain the public listings of Southern Legacy on each of the TSXV and the Bolsa de Valores de Lima (the Lima Stock Exchange). Amalco will assume all of the liabilities and assets of each of Regulus and Southern Legacy in accordance with the Business Corporations Act (Alberta).

Regulus and Southern Legacy have agreed to amalgamate pursuant to a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Alberta), based on an exchange ratio of 0.565 shares of Amalco for each share of Southern Legacy and one share of Amalco for each share of Regulus. Amalco will also effect a 1:3 share consolidation concurrent with the amalgamation. As a result, shareholders of Southern Legacy will in effect receive 0.1883 shares of Amalco for each Southern Legacy share and shareholders of Regulus will receive 0.333 shares of Amalco for each Regulus share. Upon completion of the arrangement Amalco will have approximately 45.3 million shares outstanding, approximately 74% of which will be held by former Regulus shareholders and 26% of which will be held by former Southern Legacy shareholders. It is expected that all of the outstanding common share purchase options of Regulus and Southern Legacy will be cancelled as part of the arrangement for no consideration.

The companies intend to call special meetings of their respective securityholders on or before September 30, 2014.

In connection with the signing of this Agreement, Regulus has agreed to increase the unsecured line of credit it has extended to Southern Legacy to a maximum of $2,500,000 (the "Loan"), with the other terms of the Loan remaining unchanged from the terms disclosed in the press release dated May 20, 2014. Advances under the Loan will be made at the discretion of Regulus on expenses approved by Regulus.

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes. These mistakes are not unavoidable, and in fact, avoiding them gifts an organization with sustained competitive advantage, just like it did for Japanese Manufacturing Post WWII.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
