Approximately $1.3 million of such net loss (six cents per fully diluted share) was attributed to the effects of recording stock-based compensation in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

The Company recorded $83,950 of revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The net loss for the period was $1,415,761, equal to a loss of six cents per share (fully diluted). Approximately $1.3 million of such net loss (six cents per fully diluted share) was attributed to the effects of recording stock based compensation in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The weighted average number of fully-diluted common shares for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was 22,285,543. All such amounts are unaudited.
Revenues for the three- and twelve-month periods were generated from the Company's asset management and development activities.
No member of management or their beneficiaries has engaged in any sale or purchase of the Company's common shares or equity-related securities during the twelve months ended December 31, 2013.
Operating results for the comparable periods in 2012 are not relevant due to the previously-announced discontinuance of certain operations and changes in accounting methods.
2013 ACTIVITY SUMMARY
Summing up 2013 activity, Gregory N. Senkevitch, Beneficial's Chairman, President and CEO said: "Our Project Solutions business provided all of the Company's revenues for 2013. The Company recorded revenue from our co-development assignment at 1355 First Avenue and from our asset management engagements. Aside from the effects of recording stock based compensation in accordance with GAAP, the Company recorded a loss of two cents per fully diluted share. Additionally, it should be noted the Company has not recorded a credit for federal and state income taxes to offset such losses on a GAAP basis."
Senkevitch added: "These initial activities of our Project Solutions operation have uniquely positioned the Company to be recognized as an innovative service provider within the 'built' environment. Over the past year, our most significant project, 1355 First Avenue (www.charlesnyc.com) -- one of the few new construction projects on Manhattan's highly desired Upper East Side -- has garnered accolades for its design, sales activity and unique market positioning. Our BFHJ Project Solutions management team is proud to have originated this ground breaking development back in 2007 and is privileged to be playing a role in its delivery. The Company's role in this project is small; however, it indicates the business that Project Solutions is pursuing."
Commenting on 2013's acquisition activity, Senkevitch said: "Restructuring the Green RG transaction to a licensing arrangement recognizes the synergies that we can create within our existing management team and its extended network of professional contacts. During our due diligence process, we recognized that both Beneficial's and Green RG's interests were better served by obtaining access to Green RG's technology on a favorable pricing basis and accessing proprietary situations where the technology could be utilized to maximize our Company's profits. Over the next several weeks we expect to conclude the Green Econometrics acquisition (www.greenecon.net) and to further outline our plans to staff up our Energy Solutions business and roll out its business plan."
INVESTOR CALL SET
Senkevitch also announced the Company's second investor call: "With the scope of the changes to the Company's capital structure and business platform during 2013 and the expectation that we will be able to announce one or more potential acquisitions and management team additions over the next several weeks, a second investor call is warranted. This call will provide an interactive forum that will allow for the continued discussion of the Company's strategy and communicate management's accomplishments and expectations."
The investor call will start promptly at 11:00 AM EDT on Wednesday, April 23, 2014. The toll free dial in number for United States and Canada is (888) 481-2844. The international toll number is (719) 325-2144 (not toll free). For either number please enter pass code 6980950 when prompted. Allow at least 15 minutes prior to the call for the registration process. Investor questions will be answered as time allows.
"We are building a company that combines experienced, principal-based talent with cutting edge technology and capital-based solutions. Over the next several weeks we will continue to outline additional service platforms and management talent that will expand our basket of services for the 'built' environment. We believe that this basket of services greatly exceeds those provided by traditional real estate service providers, will allow us to target unique value-added situations in the 'built' environment and will enable us to achieve enhanced revenue streams from multiple engagements with repeat clients and customers. This is how we will 'Create Value from Market Knowledge,'" Senkevitch concluded.

As a result of this reverse split, the Company's outstanding common shares decreased from 4,099,099,952 to 848,992.
The Series "B" Preferred Stock is at all times convertible into no less than 51% of the aggregate amount of outstanding Common Stock, inclusive of the Common Shares to be issued to the Series "B" Preferred Stock, assuming all the Series "B" Preferred Stock is converted (but not less than 2,000,000 shares).
After the 2013 reverse split, the Company issued 50,000 common shares to its outside counsel for legal services. Additionally options and warrants were issued to employees and consultants allowing for the purchase of up to 4,175,000 common shares at a per share price of 25 cents.

The notes have a conversion price of $1.43 per share and each $25,000 note includes a warrant to purchase 17,500 shares at $2.00 per share. Through the date of this news release, a total of $175,000 of the Series "A" Convertible Notes has been placed.
In April 2012, the Company granted the Company's Chief Executive Officer an option to acquire up to 10,000,000 shares of the Company's for three cents per share.

The credit agreement bears interest at a rate of 12% per annum, compounded monthly. Substantially all of the Company's assets are pledged to secure borrowings under the credit agreement, subject to subordination to the Series "A" Convertible Notes.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...

Thomas Bitman of Gartner wrote a blog post last year about why OpenStack projects fail. In that article, he outlined three particular metrics which together cause 60% of OpenStack projects to fall short of expectations: Wrong people (31% of failures): a successful cloud needs commitment both from the operations team as well as from "anchor" tenants. Wrong processes (19% of failures): a successful cloud automates across silos in the software development lifecycle, not just within silos.

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...
