11.                                 Amendment. This LOI may be modified or amended only by written agreement of the parties hereto.

12.                                 Counterparts. This LOI may be executed in multiple counterparts and by facsimile each of which shall be an original, but all of which shall be deemed to constitute one instrument. The delivery of an executed counterpart of this LOI by electronic means, including by facsimile or by ".pdf" attachment to email, shall be deemed to be valid delivery thereof binding upon all the parties hereto.

13.                                 Governing Law. This LOI shall be governed by and construed exclusively in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Nevada without regard to the conflicts of laws principles thereof. The parties hereto hereby expressly and irrevocably agree that any dispute arising directly and/or indirectly pursuant to, arising out of or under this LOI, (“Disputes”) shall be settled by final and binding arbitration in San Diego, California under the then effective Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified hereby. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties. There shall be one (1) arbitrator who shall be appointed by AAA in accordance with the listing, striking and ranking procedure in the Rules and such appointment shall be binding on the parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award any remedy or relief that a court in the State of California could order or grant, including specific performance of any obligation created hereunder, the issuance of an injunction or other provisional relief, or the imposition of sanctions for abuse or frustration of the arbitration process. The arbitrator shall apply the law of the State of Nevada in deciding the merits of any Dispute. The arbitration award will be in writing. By agreeing to arbitration, the parties do not intend to deprive any court of its jurisdiction to issue a pre-arbitral injunction, pre-arbitral attachment, or other order in aid of arbitration proceedings and the enforcement of any award. Without prejudice to such provisional remedies as may be available under the jurisdiction of a court, the arbitral tribunal shall have full authority to grant provisional remedies and to direct the parties to request that any court modify or vacate any temporary or preliminary relief issued by such court, and to award damages for the failure of any party to respect the arbitrator’s orders to that effect. In addition to damages, the arbitrator may award any remedy provided for under applicable law and the terms hereof, including, without limitation, specific performance or other forms of injunctive relief. It is the intent of the parties that any arbitration shall be concluded as quickly as reasonably practicable. The parties shall share equally the fees and expenses of the arbitration, unless the arbitrator shall determine that a different allocation of such fees and expenses is appropriate in the circumstances, in which event the arbitrator’s determination shall be final and binding upon the parties.

14.                                 Severability. The invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of any provision or provisions of this Agreement will not affect any other provision of this Agreement, which will remain in full force and effect, nor will the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of a portion of any provision of this Agreement affect the balance of such provision. In the event that any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement or any portion thereof shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, this Agreement shall be reformed, construed and enforced as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.

15.                                 Notices. All notices, demands or other communications given hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given when delivered in person or transmitted by facsimile transmission and on the third (3rd) calendar day after being mailed by United States registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, to the addresses herein above first mentioned or to such other address as any party hereto shall designate to the other for such purpose in the manner hereinafter set forth.


16.                                 Agreement Binding in Part; Compliance with Applicable Laws. This LOI shall be considered binding and enforceable against the parties with respect to paragraphs 4, 5, 6, and 8-13 hereof, with all other portions of this LOI constituting a non-binding recitation of the material terms of a contemplated future transaction between the parties. Both NWYU and ST agree to use their respective best efforts to negotiate a mutually acceptable Definitive Agreement and to complete the Closing, which shall include the above terms and conditions but is not limited thereto. It is the understanding of NWYU and ST that all matters referred to in this LOI are conditioned upon compliance with applicable Federal and state securities laws and other applicable laws.
