Is it happening to you? You wake up at night, look at the clock, and notice that it is 11:11 p.m. This happens again the next night, and the next. You think it is a coincidence, but what if you were to discover that it was happening to others--possibly millions of others--all over the world? And that it meant something...something important? The reports of people noticing strange and repeated associations with the number 11 are on the rise, prompting theories connecting this phenomenon with the coming Mayan calendar end date of 12/21/2012. But it's not just the number 11 that is showing up in people's lives, it is often accompanied by unusual events or profound insights. Mysterious numbers and strange sequences appear throughout the history of human experience. What do they mean? What secrets do they keep? Are these wake-up calls to a higher state of consciousness, triggers of paranormal experiences, or the activation of what some scientists refer to as "junk DNA"? In this fascinating new work, You'll learn about: Number-based patterns in nature--such as the Fibonacci spiral, the golden ratio, and DNA sequences--and the secrets of sacred geometry. Synchronicity: The science behind coincidences and what they might be trying to tell us. How the entire universe can be condensed into a handful of mathematical numbers and equations. The power of numerology in human lives. Is God a number? How numbers relate to the creative force behind all reality. We live according to times, dates, and numbers, and 11:11 The Time Prompt Phenomenon will explore the mysteries of 11:11 and the many other ways in which numbers compose the very foundation of our reality.

Spine Chilling Murders in the Quad Cities Book Excerpt:

Spine-Chilling Murders in the Quad-Cities is a collection of true-life stories - most of them rescued from old newspaper accounts published over 100 years ago. Only a few of the events in this book have ever made it into print, except maybe in musky-old county histories. Even then, they are lucky to rate a paragraph. Cities covered include Davenport, Bettendorf, Muscatine, and Clinton, Iowa, and Rock Island, Moline, and Silvis, Illinois. Stories include: The murder of Herman Peetz by his former friend, Walter J. Hill, in Rockingham, West Davenport, Iowa. When Anna Kilduff shot and killed her husband John at the Bar Fish and Oyster Market on Brady Street in Davenport. The Black Hand killing of Beni Scatura on West Third Street in Davenport by Joe Campanelli. The story of how Irene Dolph shot and killed her husband, Fritz, in Lyons, now Clinton, Iowa. A pair of shootings in the Silvis Railroad Yards in the early 1900s. Dan Chasteen killed Special Officer Hugo Alvine, and Alfonanso Petrone fell victim to the Black Hand. Ethel Collicott was murdered at the River-to-River Garage on Davenport's Main Street during an attempted robbery. His killer Norman O. Luce was captured nine years later in Plattsburgh, New York. Lulu Bennett whacked her neighbor Mary Mason over the head and killed her over a racial slur. Manuel Rocha killed his friend Harry Carey with an ax on Brown Street in Davenport. Rudolph Brandenburg's stepfather Claus Muenter was a mean drunk who constantly abused Brandenburg's mother. One day Brandenburg snapped, and unloaded seven rounds from his Colt Automatic into Muenter, then turned the gun around and beat his head with the butt of his revolver. Maria Mota and her lover, Antonio Silva, murdered her common-law husband, Pedro Medjia in the boxcar settlement outside of Walcott, Iowa, so they could run away and get married.< Fred Smith shot and almost killed Davenport Policeman Henry Janssen on a routine burglary call. After he was caught, Smith said he didn't want to be taken in with a gun in his pocket. Maurice Meyer killed Rose Gendler and tossed her warm body over the Rock River bridge in Moline, Illinois three days before Christmas in 1932. He said she took a fall on the ice and he disposed of the body rather than face questioning. The coroner said she didn't die until her body hit the ice below the bridge. Read them now, if you dare!

Evaluating Information Systems Book Excerpt:

The adoption of Information Technology (IT) and Information Systems (IS) represents significant financial investments, with alternative perspectives to the evaluation domain coming from both the public and private sectors. As a result of increasing IT/IS budgets and their growing significance within the development of an organizational infrastructure, the evaluation and performance measurement of new technology remains a perennial issue for management. This book offers a refreshing and updated insight into the social fabric and technical dimensions of IT/IS evaluation together with insights into approaches used to measure the impact of information systems on its stakeholders. In doing so, it describes the portfolio of appraisal techniques that support the justification of IT/IS investments. Evaluating Information Systems explores the concept of evaluation as an evolutionary and dynamic process that takes into account the ability of enterprise technologies to integrate information systems within and between organisations. In particular, when set against a backdrop of organisational learning. It examines the changing portfolio of benefits, costs and risks associated with the adoption and diffusion of technology in today's global marketplace. Finally approaches to impact assessment through performance management and benchmarking is discussed.
