LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 11/29/16 -- Horizonte Minerals Plc, (AIM: HZM)(TSX: HZM) ('Horizonte' or 'the Company') is pleased to announce that, at its General Meeting held earlier today, the resolutions set out in the Notice of General Meeting sent to Shareholders on 1 November 2016 were duly passed and as a result the Company will close its previously announced GBP 9 million placing to fund a Feasibility Study at its 100% owned Araguaia Nickel Project in Brazil ('Araguaia' or 'the Project').

Jeremy Martin, CEO of Horizonte commented, "I am pleased that following approval from shareholders we will now close the GBP 9 million fundraise. The fundraise has demonstrated strong support from both new and existing UK and Canadian institutional investors. The proceeds combined with the existing cash position ensure that we have a robust balance sheet as we start the Feasibility Study on the Araguaia project which we are developing as a Tier 1 nickel project in Brazil.

"Activity is currently underway on the next phase of the permitting to obtain the Installation Licence, as well as a number of the work streams that will link into the Feasibility Study. The main contracts are due to be awarded in Q1 2017 as we work to advance the Project through the Feasibility Stage during the course of 2017. We look forward to keeping shareholders updated with the Company's development."

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

Furthermore, the funding and research going into AI now comes from a wide range of com...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
