Concurrently, the Corporation continues to work towards obtaining the necessary permits with respect to the Oracle Ridge project located near Tucson, Arizona.

In July 2012 we received the Pima County Stage II Air Quality Installation and Operating Permit. The amended Aquifer Protection Permit ("APP") is under technical review and a draft permit is expected to be issued for public comment by or about the end of 2012.

Also in July 2012, we announced that we had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (the "MOU") with Pima County for the development of the Mine. The County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution in support of our proposal to re-open the Oracle Ridge mine, and also approved and ratified the MOU. Pursuant to the MOU, we intend to exchange approximately 133 acres of private land for certain Pima County land that lies between the mine site and the tailings facility and that is necessary for the purposes of constructing, operating and maintaining conveyance pipelines, utilities and portions of a road for the Oracle Ridge project site. Further, we intend to provide at least an additional 300 acres of land to Pima County as mitigation for potential disturbances related to the operation of the Oracle Ridge project.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
As enterprises move to all-IP networks and cloud-based applications, communications service providers (CSPs) – facing increased competition from over-the-top providers delivering content via the Internet and independently of CSPs – must be able to offer seamless cloud-based communication and collaboration solutions that can scale for small, midsize, and large enterprises, as well as public sector organizations, in order to keep and grow market share. The latest version of Oracle Communications Unified Communications Suite gives CSPs the capability to do just that. In addition, its integration ...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
