COLTS NECK, N.J., Jan. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in New Jersey and Rockland County, N.Y. is pleased to announce that Robin Jackson, an award-winning sales associate, has been selected to market and sell a private retreat owned by Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter, actress, and talk show hostess Queen Latifah. The property, situated on nine acres in Colts Neck, N.J., will be marketed through the company's luxury division, Coldwell Banker Previews(R) International.

Among the features are: a residence offering more than 7,000 square-feet of living space, outdoor recreation areas, heated Olympic-sized swimming pool and luxury amenities.
The property is the first luxury home that Latifah purchased. The custom home, built in 2001, was designed for comfort and entertaining, and has been used as a retreat and gathering place for family and friends over the years.
"Many incredible memories have been shared with those closest to me and my family in this home," said Latifah. "I am confident that the new owners will love the home and the Colts Neck community as much as I do."
Long considered one of hip-hop's pioneer female artists, Latifah is a singer-songwriter, actress, model, television producer, record producer and talk show hostess. She has earned a Golden Globe award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Image Awards, a Grammy Award, six additional Grammy nominations, and Emmy and Academy Award nominations.

Classic and contemporary best describe the transitionally styled home which combines traditional design with contemporary architectural details. The 6-bedroom home features an open floor plan with hardwood flooring throughout, a grand foyer, and sunken two-story great room with gas fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to decks. Other amenities include a library with gas fireplace, half bath, an office with gas fireplace and private deck overlooking professionally landscaped grounds, and an au pair suite with full bath.

"I am honored to represent this spectacular home which offers traditional elegance and unique contemporary designs to suit a variety of homebuyers' taste," said Jackson. "Even though the home is large, it has a cozy relaxing feel which makes it perfect for families or for entertaining. Colts Neck offers extraordinary opportunities for those seeking privacy and tranquility in a quiet community which offers nearby amenities like the Jersey Shore, fine dining, theaters, and the arts. Delicious Orchards, a family owned market, is nearby and a particular favorite of Queen Latifah. The home is within easy commuting distance of New York City and Philadelphia."

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...

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 ...
