SAN DIEGO, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the Mt. Soledad Memorial Association (MSMA), represented by Liberty Institute and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP, files a petition asking the United States Supreme Court to save the historic 29-foot-tall Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial Cross in San Diego, CA from being torn down. To view the petition online, follow this link: http://www.libertyinstitute.org/document.doc?id=133
The MSMA's petition for the U.S. Supreme Court to grant review of the case, Mt. Soledad Memorial Association v. Steve Trunk, et al., follows a district court's order in December requiring the removal of the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial Cross. Erected in 1954, the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial is the nation's oldest Korean War Veterans Memorial. It contains over 3,300 plaques honoring individual veterans' selfless sacrifice and service.
"Due to the unique circumstances and the gravity of the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial case, we wanted to give the Supreme Court an opportunity to take the case now if they choose—since they will be deciding it eventually," said Liberty Institute President and CEO Kelly Shackelford. We are hopeful that, once and for all, the Court will settle this question of the constitutionality of the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial, as the fate of hundreds of other similar veterans memorials hang in the balance."
Bruce Bailey, MSMA President and CEO, said, "The Association is eager to have this case reviewed by the highest court in the land. We built this Korean War veterans memorial with support from The American Legion close to 60 years ago to honor the selfless sacrifice and service of the thousands of veterans who fought for the freedoms we, Americans, enjoy today. The sacrifice of these great men and women must not be in vain. We will continue to depend on the steady hand of leadership of our attorneys and the court system, and I am confident we will ultimately prevail."

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
