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.

Weeks after being reported missing, police find Plaster's body parts scattered throughout the county. Despite her pleas of innocence, Phillips is convicted of her friend's murder.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
