Bulging in-boxes, out-of-control stress, and even climate change serve as reminders that when it comes to being happy and healthy, less is more. In this interactive journal, organization expert Mary Carlomagno leads readers on a journey toward release and discovery. Guided by the principle that the way you spend your time and money should reflect your true priorities, Secrets of Simplicity shows how to make practical changes to unburden your closets and calendars and make room for what's really important. Readers can record their successes, as they de-clutter their homes and in the process, their minds.
Best Friend for Hire

Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Need someone to talk to or a friend to lean on? Call Best Friend for Hire. I am here for you. Jersey Girl Jessie DeSalvo has her dream job at one of New York’s top publishing companies. After ten years of hard work the day of her big promotion has arrived. Unfortunately, her company has other ideas. Instead of a corner office, Jessie is handed her pink slip. Left with little more than her cell phone and an unusable contact list, Jessie retreats to less-than-fashionable Hoboken, New Jersey, to figure out her life—and deal with the attentions of her loving but inquisitive Italian-American family. Then she accidentally stumbles into a career as a professional best friend—by helping friends and strangers straighten out whatever is wrong with their lives. Her jobs include planning the New Jersey wedding of the year and saving a bankrupt rock club in town. Soon, things get complicated when she falls in love with the club manager—and promises an appearance by Bruce Springsteen. In the end, Jessie realizes that not even “The Boss” can make things right—and that she needs to become her own best friend to be truly happy.
Infrared thermography is a measurement technique that enables to obtain non intrusive measurements of surface temperatures. One of the interesting features of this technique is its ability to measure a full two dimensional map of the surface temperature and for this reason it has been widely used as a flow visualization technique. Since the temperature measurements can be extremely accurate it is possible, by using a heat flux sensor, also to measure convective heat transfer coefficient distributions on a surface making the technique de facto quantitative. This book, starting from the basic theory of infrared thermography and heat flux sensor guides, both the experienced researcher and the young student, in the correct application of this powerful technique to various practical problems. A significant number of examples and applications are also examined in detail.

Containing edited versions of most of the papers presented at the Fifteenth International Conference on Computational Methods and Experimental Measurements, this book reviews the latest work on these two approaches, and the interaction between them.
This book contains the results of the sixteenth in a biennial series of meetings organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology to facilitate that communication between scientists who perform experiments, researchers who develop computer codes, and those who carry out measurements on prototypes. The conference was first held in 1984. While computer models are now more reliable and better able to represent more realistic problems, experimental measurements need to be conditioned to the requirements of the computational models. Progress of engineering sciences depends on the orderly and progressive concurrent development of all three fields.The papers contained in the book cover such topics as: Computational and experimental methods; Computer interaction and control of experiments; Fluid flow; Structural and stress analysis; Computer methods; Materials characterization; Heat transfer and thermal processes; Data acquisition and signal processing; Advances in measurements and data acquisition; Multiscale modelling; Industrial applications.
In the last decade, ontologies have received much attention within computer science and related disciplines, most often as the semantic web. Ontology Learning and Population from Text: Algorithms, Evaluation and Applications discusses ontologies for the semantic web, as well as knowledge management, information retrieval, text clustering and classification, as well as natural language processing. Ontology Learning and Population from Text: Algorithms, Evaluation and Applications is structured for research scientists and practitioners in industry. This book is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer science.
Containing papers presented at the Thirteenth International Conference in this well established series on (CMEM) Computational Methods and Experimental Measurements. These proceedings review state-of-the-art developments on the interaction between numerical methods and experimental measurements.Featured topics include: Computational and Experimental Methods; Experimental and Computaqional Analysis; Computer Interaction and Control of Experiments; Direct, Indirect and In-Situ Measurements; Particle Methods; Structural and Stress Analysis; Structural Dynamics; Dynamics and Vibrations; Electrical and Electromagnetic Applications; Biomedical Applications; Heat Transfer; Thermal Processes; Fluid Flow; Data Acquisition; Remediation and Processing and Industrial Applications.
It's a national emergency! A rare and extremely valuable mongoose is missing and the legendary Buenos Aires zoo is in chaos. But with rabbits in the Tigers' Taj Mahal and hippos in Panda's Palace, the zoo is a very confusing place. Coco may be the Chief of Police, but solving crimes can be very stressful. Only the calming presence of his brainy cousin Alberta can help. Can Alberta and Coco follow the clues and deduce the whereabouts of the missing mongoose?
Perplexing puzzles, mind-boggling mazes and cracking codes feature in this series of stories about a pair of guinea-pig detectives - Coco Carlomagno, the easily-startled Chief of Police, and his more sensible cousin, Alberta.
Coco is the well-respected, if somewhat easily startled, Chief of Police in Buenos Aires. Alberta is his more sensible cousin. Together they crack the cases that confound this puzzling city. Coco Carlomagno is trying to avert a national disaster. La Bella Cucharita, the highly strung world-famous opera singer, is due to make her return to the stage after an unfortunate nerve-wracking incident - but a strange message has her rattled. Who on earth would send La Bella Cucharita mysterious notes on the eve of such an eagerly awaited performance? Luckily Coco is on the case, and with a little help from his logic-loving cousin Alberta, he can discover just who is behind the quivering quavers.
Sold into slavery in the West Indies, a young Native American boy from the Wampanoag tribe yearns for freedom and a chance to return to his beloved New England home. With his choices limited, and enemies all around him, the young man becomes the legendary Carlomagno, King of the Caribbean pirates. He finds himself immersed in action, adventure and political intrigue. Opposed by the fierce mercenary, Chevalier de Forteney, Carlomagno trusts his Native heart and his mighty sword to subdue any foe until he meets the mighty Anasarani!
