TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- Matica Enterprises Inc. (CSE: GRF) (FRANKFURT: 39N) announces the successful completion of its site visit and inspection of West Coast Medical Marijuana Group's ("WCMMJ") growing facility in Langley B.C. This is Matica's second medical marijuana growing related Letter Of Intent "LOI" establishing a joint venture on WCMMJ's advanced growing operations. Matica and WCMMJ intend to submit an application to become a licensed producer under the new Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations ("MMPR") shortly.
The WCMMJ growing facility is located in Langley, BC with approximately 12,500 square feet of growing space, currently operating 310 lights with room for expansion. The operation sits on over 10 acres of land in a rural jurisdiction making it ideal for future expansion and upgrades in accordance with MMPR license requirements. WCMMJ has been growing medical marijuana with high CBD levels since 2010, producing a quality product suitable for a wide variety of applications ranging from smokable to edible marijuana as well as cannabinoid research and development.
Matica has now established two separate LOIs with two advanced medical marijuana growing facilities in BC and Ontario with WCMMJ and ChroniCare respectively, as well as establishing an exclusive sales agreement for GlobalEx's Chlorine Dioxide tablets for use in marijuana growing as a natural pesticide alternative. Both ChroniCare and WCMMJ have been and are currently producing medical marijuana under Marijuana Medical Access Regulations ("MMAR") licenses and both operations will be applying for the new MMPR license that would allow Matica to become a licensed producer in two provinces across Canada, reaching a nation-wide customer base.
Matica Enterprises CEO, Boris Ziger states, "We are very impressed with the high quality of West Coast Medical Marijuana Group's Langley, BC growing facility and intend to work closely with these established growers to obtain our new MMPR license approval. Matica has been successful in its strategy of establishing joint ventures with multiple advanced stage marijuana producers in order to diversify risk and provide significant value to its shareholders by having exposure to multiple pending MMPR license applications."
Ziger continues to say, "We are looking at opportunities across the entire industry. Matica has secured an exclusive sales agreement for GlobalEx Chlorine Dioxide tablets for use in marijuana growing operations as a natural cleaning and sanitizing agent that could eliminate the need for pesticides and fungicides. We will continue to evaluate new opportunities within this quickly expanding sector while advancing our current operations in a timely manner."
Testing of Chlorine Dioxide Tablets at BC Facility
WCMMJ is currently conducting testing on the effectiveness of Matica's exclusive GlobalEx Chlorine Dioxide tablets in their B.C. marijuana growing operations and will be assisting in developing a cleaning and sanitizing regime for growing Medical Marijuana without the use of pesticides or fungicides to produce a superior quality product that meets the high standards set by Health Canada. Management anticipates that test results from WCMMJ's BC facility will return the same successful results as the tests recently conducted by ChroniCare at the Ontario facility.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade.

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...
