Please read the first chapter of the book Life Is Not Fair to get a better understanding of my biography. Before I grew up and met my husband, I had a typical childhood, with six brothers and four sisters, me being the middle child of eleven children. We lived on a forty acre farm in a small suburb north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I did well in my elementary school, junior high and senior high school. After graduating from high school I was in a horrible deadly car accident, where four people died and I was disabled for almost a whole year. After that year I went to a community technical college taking the practical nursing course and did well also, I passed my State Boards first try. I was working as an LPN when I met Armand Chicoine, we dated on and off for about a year and a half when he proposed. After our marriage, life was perfect. The book then gives you most of the information regarding the time after our marriage up to and including the events regarding his murder. Since his death I have lived life waiting and hoping for something to come of this mystery. After seeing so many cold cases on TV and in Article in the Newspapers and/or books on this subject I thought I would write a book and hopefully get some help to solve my husbands Cold-Case Unsolved Murder. I started this book in 2002. Writing a book is not easy. I've had several Ghostwriters who wanted to write the story their way and not as it was. So they did not write this book. I hired three Ghostwriters who helped me to professionally put together this scrapbook. So the rest of the story starts here. Life Is Not Fair! I hope you like this book and you can help me find answers to my questions: Who did it and Why? If you have any information regarding my husband Armand P. P. Chicoines murder please get back to me at my Email address: [email protected]

The IT professional is constantly struggling with information overload when addressing Incident and Problem Management situations. They need an approach that would dispense with all the different dimensions and layers of data and information to reveal the true nature of the incident or problem as early as possible. What the incident & problem investigators need is a structured, systematic thinking process that helps them to discover the information that is relevant and remove the irrelevant information. Imagine having access to a process that would deliver the correct starting point and provide you only the relevant information first time every time? Even better, imagine having a structured set of 18 questions that would identify what information is missing and therefore the reason why the cause has not been identified yet. When the investigator trusts the process he or she will have a more direct approach. “You either know the answer to the question or you need to get someone to go and get that specific information!” “RESOLVE IT” is a book that will provide you with the structure, process and questions on how to approach any incident situation and will increase your success and confidence levels beyond all expectations!

In 2011, the annual conference series Going Romance celebrated its 25th edition in Utrecht, the founder city of the enterprise. Since its inception in the eighties of the last century, the local initiative has developed into the major European discussion forum for research focussing on the contribution of (one of the) Romance languages to general linguistic theorizing as well as on the working out of in-depth analyses of Romance data within linguistic frameworks. The annual meeting took place on December, 8-10.The present volume is the 5th of the series Romance Languages and Linguistic Theory published by John Benjamins. We publish here a selected set of peer-reviewed articles bearing on topics in phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics, that represent both issues of theoretical nature as well as developments in the field of acquisition. The articles are of great interest for specialists of Romance and for general linguists appreciating parameters and/or language acquisition. Among the contributions are three papers presented by invited speakers (Andrea Calabrese, Ricardo Etxepare and Jason Rothman), while two other very prominent Romance linguists figure as co-authors (Aafke Hulk, Luigi Rizzi).
