Highlights for the Second Quarter 2014:
- Reported revenue of $14,038 up 261% versus $3,880 over the same period in 2013 and up 136% from $5,942 in the 1

- Completed development and manufactured the initial inventory of Chews 2 Lose and began developing its direct-to-consumer marketing and branding collateral as well as secured a distribution agreement with Windmill Health Products. For more information visit: www.Chew2Lose.com
- Completed the development and purchased the initial inventory of All Natural Speed.
- Roger Cady, M.D. joins GelStat as its Chief Medical Advisor.
Larry Gershman, GelStat's CEO, said, "The second quarter of 2014 was another transformational quarter for GelStat as we increased sales of GelStat Migraine while preparing and purchasing inventory of Chews 2 Lose and All Natural Speed. Most importantly, we signed a definitive agreement to acquire Mastix Medica which we closed on July 7, 2014. This acquisition secured the future production of Chews 2 Lose, as well as brought significant revenue, resources and opportunities to GelStat."
Since the closing of the second quarter, the Company has achieved a number of significant milestones including:
- Closed the acquisition of Mastix Medica completing our vertical integration strategy and providing a solid foothold in the rapidly growing high-CBD hemp oil products market.
- Launched a new corporate website www.GelStat.com .
Robert Estey, COO of GelStat, said, "We have made great strides at Mastix Medica since the end of the second quarter. Several new products incorporating high-CBD industrial hemp oil have been developed by our in-house team and are ready for production and distribution to consumers in the near future. Purchase orders from five new customers have been received and are being produced and shipped over the next few months. Our product development project list is robust with a good combination of contract manufacturing customers and our own proprietary products."
Our primary objectives and outlook for the remainder of 2014:
- Increasing the marketing efforts to secure additional contract manufacturing opportunities for Mastix Medica. Mastix has a solid pipeline of projects and purchase orders in excess of $500,000 to be completed by the end of 2014.
- Building brand recognition and product placement through distribution agreements in select retailers for GelStat Migraine, Chews 2 Lose and All Natural Speed.
- Developing additional high-CBD products leveraging Mastix Medica's proprietary methods to make functional gums and lozenges.
- Collectively, GelStat forecasts revenue of $400,000 for the third quarter and $500,000 for the fourth quarter of 2014.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
