NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Have you ever wished for a miracle? Of course you have. You know you have. For which of us on this planet, atheists included, has not at one time or another, and with the heart of a beggar, pleaded, entreated, prayed, even bargained for a miracle of one sort or another to be granted, whether for ourselves or someone else?
Author Eliot Hartford Bailey tackles this very "touchy" subject, with an interesting twist, in the release of Chasing A Miracle, his first book in a trilogy of the same name, and reminds us that miracles are not ever to be confused with hocus pocus or even unexpected good fortune.
In Chasing A Miracle, Chief Investigator and protagonist Dr. Adam Bell knows all too well the difference between miracles and magic. After all, 'miracles' are his official business, and under investigation, at the Bureau of Scientific Skepticism (B.O.S.S). His decent nature and intellectual curiosity soon cause him to delve more deeply than required into the anatomy and character of miracles - all in keeping with the Bureau's secret agenda. This passionate involvement happens not a moment too soon as it turns out when, without warning, his own dire need for a miracle transforms his usual impartial, objective, routine work with this covert federal government bureau into an inordinately personal, life-and-death chase. Understandably, Adam is also, of necessity, himself inherently transformed from the quiet, plodding, somewhat hesitating investigator, unused to police work, into a man on a mission, a father-to-be with a cause, where time is of the essence, and there's no room for error...
"There are many disappointing "mystery thrillers" out there, and so it is refreshing to pick up a novel that actually works. 'Chasing A Miracle' presents us with the supernatural, and espionage, and a crafty protagonist who is double-crossed, plenty of references to actual locales and relevant world events. (Who would have thought there were so many real-life survivors of skydiving accidents?) This is essentially a "what if?" adventure… it's a first novel by a new author who is exploring storytelling's reach in an interesting and different genre. I'm giving this book five stars as it is well worth the read." Dhyana A. - Goodreads.com reviewer.
Many years ago, Eliot happened to serendipitously cross paths with the one and only Oprah Winfrey (who offered him some words of wisdom) on his island home of Saint Lucia, a chance meeting which he believes has inspired him greatly over the years.
Moreover, during the writing of this book, Mr. Bailey was intriguingly and inexplicably visited at his business place, in the presence of all his staff, by a (still) unknown woman who had surprising knowledge of his name and face and who claimed to have been sent to him by the Holy Ghost with a message from God himself! "An unfathomable experience… surely not one to be taken lightly," says the author. "It was one which only further fueled my fire in the creation of what I believe you will discover is a stimulating trilogy."
My interview with Mr. Bailey was a real eye-opener. He holds some quite interesting, deep, and different views on a range of topics – dreams, religion and even down to his theory on humans as creators of their own evolution.

As enterprises look to take advantage of the cloud, they need to understand the importance of safeguarding their confidential and sensitive data in cloud environments. Enterprises must protect their data from (i) system administrators who don't need to see the data in the clear and (ii) adversaries who become system administrators from stolen credentials. In short, enterprises must take control of their data: The best way to do this is by using advanced encryption, centralized key management and...

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

DevOps is the hottest moving target when it comes to software development methodologies. Many people fear that this fast-paced, barrier-breaking movement will leave information security best practices in the dust. Analysts provide recommendations to security professionals using bingo-laden terms like "moving security to the left" or "get a seat at the table." What we need are real-world examples and tactics for security practitioners to be part of DevOps. In his session at DevOps Summit, Andrew...

In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
