MAITLAND, Fla., Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The new book, And God Created America, ($16.99, paperback, 9781628712377; $26.99, hardcover, 9781628712384) by Chip Combs, M.A., challenges many of the false notions that are being taught in American colleges and universities. The author specifically delves into U.S. history and facts surrounding the Founding Fathers, who many believe were not Christians. Combs's thorough research not only proves that these great American men were Bible believers, but the book also demonstrates their Christian devotion.
"There are many people and groups who champion 'America the Agnostic,' but they are cherry-picking their evidence," states the author. "The signers of the Declaration of Independence are largely Orthodox Christians by over eight-to-one. However, our universities and media are teaching the opposite—that our founders were secular."
Louis (Chip) Combs, M.A., is a graduate of Yale Divinity School in New Haven and Bethel Seminary in St. Paul. He has taught at Augsburg and St. Scholastica Colleges. Chip is fascinated by sports, religion, history, science, and literature. He loves even mediocre jokes and admires St. Francis for preaching to the birds! He lives in Edina, Minnesota, and is available to speak on religious and historical topics.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

Indeed, managing the interaction between Docker containers and networks has always been fraught with complications.
