NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Original SoupMan - the inspiration for the famous Seinfeld "No Soup for You!" episode and #1 Zagat-rated, best-tasting soup in the world— is finally giving Jason Alexander his soup!
To celebrate the nationwide launch of The Original SoupMan in the soup aisle of supermarkets nationwide, Mr. Alexander, who played the role of George Costanza on Seinfeld from 1990 to 1998, will make an in-store appearance at Pavilions in Burbank, California on Saturday, December 15th. An Emmy and Golden Globe nominated and Tony Award winning actor, Mr. Alexander is an equity partner in SoupMan, Inc., parent company of The Original SoupMan. During his in-store appearance, Mr. Alexander will be filming promotional videos for The Original SoupMan and doing "meet and greets" with Pavilions' customers. A recent poll by "60 Minutes" and Vanity Fair named Seinfeld the favorite sitcom of all time, topping The Honeymooners and Friends.
Mr. Alexander commented: "Many people don't know our famous 'soup kitchen' episode on Seinfeld was inspired by an actual soup restaurant off 8th Avenue in New York. The soup recipes created by Al Yeganeh are considered by me and thousands of New Yorkers as some of the best soups in the world. And the Zagat's Food Guide agrees. Now that The Original SoupMan recipes are becoming available in supermarket soup aisles, the whole country will get to experience what we already know so well. I'm hoping everyone will come to enjoy the soup so many have been lining up for years to get. And don't worry, nothing can go wrong. Cause this time - well, it's soup for everybody."

The Original SoupMan soups available in supermarkets feature the same obsessive perfectionism and eclectic varieties for which the brand is famous, starting with Lobster Bisque, Chicken Noodle, Lentil and Tomato Bisque. The soups are packaged in an innovative, shelf-stable Tetra Recart carton package that maintains the impeccable taste and quality standards which made The Original SoupMan famous, while allowing consumers to now find The Original SoupMan in the soup aisle along with Campbell's and Progresso soups, where over $6 billion in soup purchases occur annually. The Tetra Recart carton package is made mainly from paper, a renewable resource, and is BPA-free and recyclable. Suggested retail price is $3.79 to $3.99 for a two-serving, 17.3 oz. carton.
The Original SoupMan can be found in the soup aisle of a growing array of supermarkets nationwide, including: A&P, Associated Food Stores, Carrs, D'Agostino's, Dominick's, Fairway, Food Basics, Food Emporium, Foodtown, H-E-B Supermarkets, Ingles Markets, Pathmark, Pavilions, Price Chopper, Randalls, Safeway, Schnucks, Shop 'n Bag, Super Fresh, The Fresh Market, Thriftway, Tom Thumb, Vons, Waldbaum's, Weiss, Woodman's, and more.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
