/ CORRECTION - Arctic Oil & Gas Provides Update on Claim to Arctic Petro Resources

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/29/08 -- In the news release, "Arctic Oil & Gas Provides Update on Claim to Arctic Petro Resources," issued earlier today by Arctic Oil & Gas Corporation (OTCBB: AOAGE), we are advised by the company that the ticker symbol in the first paragraph should read "(OTCBB: AOAGE)" rather than "(OTCBB: AOAG)" as originally issued. Complete corrected text follows.

Arctic Oil & Gas Provides Update on Claim to Arctic Petro Resources

Claim Legally Filed on May 9th, 2006 With the United Nations and the Five Arctic Countries

LAS VEGAS, NV -- January 29, 2008 -- Arctic Oil & Gas Corp. (OTCBB: AOAGE), an oil exploration venture company that has filed for the exclusive exploitation, development, marketing and extraction rights to the oil and gas resources of the seafloor and subsurface contained within the "Arctic Claims," is pleased to provide an update outlining its claims.

Arctic Oil and Gas Corp., and its partners, including the private company United Oil and Gas Consortium Management Corp., made an international Arctic Commons hydrocarbons claim on May 9th, 2006 with the United Nations and the five Arctic countries. This claim is for the exclusive exploitation, development, marketing and extraction rights to the oil and gas resources of the seafloor and subsurface contained within the "Arctic Claims."

Under international law, no country owns the North Pole or the region of the Arctic Ocean surrounding it. The five surrounding Arctic states, Russia, the United States, Canada, Norway and Denmark (via Greenland), are limited to a 370 kilometer (200 nautical mile) exclusive economic zone around their coasts. The "Arctic Claims" is the area of the Arctic Ocean that has no country's claims to it; or simply, the open area in between all of the Arctic-bordering countries.

There are very strong legal precedents for the Arctic Consortium's Arctic Commons Hydrocarbons Resource Rights Title Rights Claim under International Maritime Law and customary international laws. The company has outlined some of these precedents at its website www.arcticoag.com

Peter Sterling, CEO of the Company, stated, "Our claim is solid and we intend to vigorously assert the Arctic Hydrocarbons Claim made by Arctic Oil & Gas and its partners. Given that a preliminary assessment by the US Geological Survey (USGS) suggests the Arctic seabed may hold as much as 25 percent of the world's undiscovered oil and natural gas reserves, competition to claim parts of the Arctic seabed is likely to intensify as Arctic energy reserves become more accessible and the price for oil rises. Since we have already filed our claim with the United Nations and the five Arctic countries, we believe that we have the right to manage this vast area of natural resources."

About Arctic Oil & Gas

Arctic Oil & Gas representatives have filed a claim with the United Nations General Assembly and the countries of Canada, Russia, United States of America, Norway and Denmark, claiming, as a responsible oil and gas development agent of the "common heritage of mankind," the sole and exclusive exploitation, development, marketing and extraction rights to the oil and gas resources of the seafloor and subsurface contained within the entire Arctic Ocean Common area beyond the exclusive economic zone of the Arctic Ocean's surrounding countries called the "Arctic Claims." The Company intends to operate as the "lead manager" tasked to create a multinational joint venture consortium of major oil companies, whose technology and managerial expertise will be vital to recovering the oil and gas from beneath the harsh, deep waters of the Arctic in an environmentally safe manner.

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. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
The emerging Internet of Everything creates tremendous new opportunities for customer engagement and business model innovation. However, enterprises must overcome a number of critical challenges to bring these new solutions to market. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Martin, CTO/CIO at nfrastructure, outlined these key challenges and recommended approaches for overcoming them to achieve speed and agility in the design, development and implementation of Internet of Everything solutions wi...
A company’s collection of online systems is like a delicate ecosystem – all components must integrate with and complement each other, and one single malfunction in any of them can bring the entire system to a screeching halt. That’s why, when monitoring and analyzing the health of your online systems, you need a broad arsenal of different tools for your different needs. In addition to a wide-angle lens that provides a snapshot of the overall health of your system, you must also have precise, ...
It's been a busy time for tech's ongoing infatuation with containers. Amazon just announced EC2 Container Registry to simply container management.

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.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
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...

The following fictional case study is a composite of actual horror stories I’ve heard over the years. Unfortunately, this scenario often occurs when in-house integration teams take on the complexities of DevOps and ALM integration with an enterprise service bus (ESB) or custom integration. It is written from the perspective of an enterprise architect tasked with leading an organization’s effort to adopt Agile to become more competitive. The company has turned to Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) as ...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
