SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Family gatherings at Thanksgiving can be dangerous, especially when the woman carving your turkey is a knife-wielding femme fatale. So scoop your cranberry sauce with caution, but pull up a chair and join other viewers of Investigation Discovery's annual ode to wicked women. First, FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG returns Friday, November 23 with back-to-back episodes at 8 & 8:30 PM E/P. Former FBI criminal profiler Candice DeLong goes behind prison walls to interview women whose shocking stories of love and betrayal landed them in the big house instead of home this holiday season. Then, WIVES WITH KNIVES world premieres at 10 PM E/P with six episodes of women who stabbed their significant others, sometimes killing them. Host Dr. Casey Jordan, a criminologist and behavioral analyst with a law degree, sits down with each wife to reveal what events or motivations led them to slice and dice.
"For better or for worse, the women featured on WIVES WITH KNIVES literally cut the men out of their lives," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "Throughout Investigation Discovery's storied programming past, we've profiled liars, murderers, convicts, and thieves, but never have we focused on a specific method like using cutlery to teach your husband a lesson. Indeed, our viewers will find the stories in this series are truly a cut above the rest."
In The Beefcake and the Beauty Queen, the premiere episode of WIVES WITH KNIVES, a beautiful mother becomes smitten over an energetic ladies' man she meets at a health club. Falling fast and hard for one another, Jamie and Charlie Czerniawski marry after just six months and settle down in Freehold, N.J. They think their love is one for the ages, until they become too attractive for their own good and begin to suspect each other of cheating. Intense arguments become daily ritual and turn physical following their appearance on a reality show about their family life. Charlie rips a medicine cabinet off the wall. Jamie bashes his car with a baseball bat. Then their marital issues boil over. After returning from a nightclub, Charlie catches his wife secretly calling another man. The couple brawls in the kitchen, where Jamie grabs a knife and plunges it into her husband's arm. Charlie survives, but the marriage does not. Now Dr. Casey Jordan sits down with Jamie, who escaped jail time, to learn how things went from sweet to sour.
And in back-to-back season three premiere episodes of FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG, the former FBI criminal profiler and psychiatric nurse interviews two women convicted of murder who still maintain their innocence.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
