What is DevOps? - Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Under a DevOps model, development and operations teams are no longer “siloed.” Sometimes, these two teams are merged into a single team where the engineers work across the entire application lifecycle, from development and test to deployment to operations, and develop a range of skills not limited to a single function. Quality assurance and security teams may also become more tightly integrated with development and operations and throughout the application lifecycle.

Closing is also a one handed operation in which the lockbar tab is pushed to the side to allow the blade to close. As an every day carry (EDC) knife, the one handed opening and closing makes it an amazingly useful tool compared to a traditional pocket knife. The knife carries tip up via a single position pocket clip.

Our story is a simple one of necessity.  My husband is quite the handy (and handsome) guy.  So when we needed a home for our growning family, he started building us a house (with no contractors).  I tried to help as much as I could, designing and planning the house to be as easy as possible to build, and then onsite by cleaning up and keeping him fed and fetching batteries - but with no experience with building, and pregnant with our daughter, it never occurred to me that I could help with actual building.

I’m sure that, while not identical, my experience is shared by many people, all of us struggling with the self-inflicted burden of being constantly connected. And the most logical remedy seems to be to reverse course and disconnect. At least sometimes.

One solution might be to revert to using a non-smartphone phone.

Wind River is a thrilling, violent finale to the Hell or High Water and Sicario trilogy - The Verge
For a writer of violent action thrillers, Taylor Sheridan has an unusual fixation with the inelegance of jurisdiction within American law enforcement. At Sundance, the screenwriter of Sicario and Hell or High Water completed his spiritual trilogy of American bureaucracy and delivered his directorial debut with Wind River. Starring Jeremy Renner as a solemn hunter who discovers a dead teenage girl on the titular snow-covered Indian reservation, and Elizabeth Olsen as the inexperienced FBI agent assigned to the case, Wind River is a slow-burn thriller that flip-flops between meticulous noir and philosophically boorish procedural.

Diemme Roccia Vet Boots
I’ve always been a big sneaker guy, but as I’ve gotten older, the practicality side of my brain has begun to do battle with the swag-achievability side, and that means wearing more seasonally-appropriate footwear. Thankfully, these Diemme Rocchia Vet Boots offer the best of both worlds. Originally a hunting boot, Diemme decided to give these Italian-made, leather-lined boots a city upgrade with a lighter rubber sole. That way you don’t have to feel like you’ll immediately sink to the bottom of the ocean should someone throw you in. I’m not going to totally shun my sneaker collection, but I certainly won’t miss them as much when I toss these on, and now you won’t have to either, as END has a plethora available from navy nubuck, to black waxed suede, to an incredible red textured Mohawk for 40% off.

Also it evokes the feeling of returning to your roots, back to where you started from.” Reason enough, surely, to fire anyone’s enthusiasm.
