I see what you mean, and I saw that your application exposes the triples as
I  have more questions:

   - can your application import triples from the LOD (and display, reason,
   etc) ?
   - a standard SPARQL database is not present, and the Stralo site
   mentions  "[instead of] storing all information in a triplestore
   <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triplestore>, we have built in native
   support for machine learning, grid computing, distributed storage, etc" ;
   can you tell us more ?

(also another question at the end )

I didn't see a Fact-block here :
