There has been lots of chatter about why the investigation began on this again in 2013 and what new evidence can pop up etc. He married his second wife within about a year and a half of the death of Cory. He and his second wife were then divorced in 2013. One article on another news source said the second wife was contacted and said "I can't talk about it." Whether that means she was told by someone…

I can actually think of a few scenarios where malice may not even be an issue, and that would reflect very darkly on the whole situation to the community at large. As darkly as out-and-out murder? I don't know, that would be in the eye of the beholder, I suppose.

That is a good quality bender at The Abbey and/or Spring Street - two fine watering holes!

Nancy Grace is actually correct on that point. It depends on the state, but in most states you can "premeditate" if you even have a few seconds to contemplate the action before taking it. That's opposed to a pure "heat of the moment" situation where the killer literally doesn't think, just acts. That would get you down to Second Degree murder (I believe)
QyFiredUp - City of Quincy looking to buy new garbage and recycle fleet - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Once again, I don't like your proposal. Why tie it to the water bill ? Explain why if I take 10 showers a day, I should pay more for garbage service? Furthermore, If you purchace a seperate meter for water, the city cannot make you pay for sewer tax if it is used to water your garden or grass. What makes you think they can charge for garbage pick up if i use a third party? If you can remember…

New development provides companies with way to design and produce

1 year, 8 months ago by Denise Donley

Step-by-step methodology for integrating lean tools with product development

The ability to develop new proprietary products or quickly refine an existing portfolio can be the difference between market stagnation and capitalizing on new growth opportunities. Many companies have the in-house capabilities to develop and commercialize new products, but often need strategic guidance to reduce manufacturing steps, develop prototypes, and ensure that the effort pays back with profitable sales. Companies that utilize a structured approach to new product development have a 400% increased probability of success with new products, 25% increased probability of being first to market, and a 66% reduction in time to market. 

Generating ideas and processes for new products can be a challenge caused by a sporadic or chaotic innovation process, or non-value added engineering activities, both of which result in a less-than-fluid process for creating fresh concepts or renewed designs. In an effort to help streamline facility activities and optimize product and idea generation, IMEC is introducing Lean New Product Development via an introductory workshop in Quincy, Illinois on December 18. 

The “quick start” Lean Product Development workshops provide a step-by-step methodology for integrating the powerful waste eliminating tools of Lean Product Development into any product development process. And in the current economic climate, doing more with less is a mandate for virtually any firm, particularly with respect to new product introductions. The design methods and principles can help companies overcome challenges regarding time to market, portfolio management, design and development resources, and new product cost. 

The workshops can expose a company to an ideal New Product Development Process that can be easily scaled to their size and need, while providing insight and tools to begin the journey to transform their product design and development activity into a low waste, high value, lean process. 

During the introductory workshop, NIST-MEP Product Development expert, Ed Maier, will present companies with an overview of the service, exploring methods and tools that can help with your product development challenges. More details can be found on the enclosed marketing flyer. Manufacturers are encouraged to attend the December 18th introductory workshop and learn more. Registration is available online now by visiting  www.imec.org/events.cfm or contact Amy Fitzgerald, IMEC Marketing Manager at 309-677-2977 for more information.
