Writing in English : The Chicago Manual of Style

What has been your experience with self-publishing a book and can you recommend a good company to work with on a project? | LinkedIn: "Did you know there is a manual called 'The Chicago Manual of Style?' This 921 pg (including index) manual is used for book publishing. She showed me that in reference books, lists of three or more items must have a comma before the 'and.' This ommission will trigger a book rejection from a publisher and makes a self published book look unprofessional. Magazines require the 'AP Style Guide' that eliminates the comma before the 'and.' (Bill Pirtle)"

"Comment voulez vous que nos enfants nous écoutent...

Tarzan vit à moitié à poil...

Cendrillon rentre à minuit...

Pinocchio passe son temps à mentir...

Aladin est le roi des voleurs...

Batman conduit à 320km/h...

La Belle au bois dormant est une flemmarde...

Blanche Neige vit avec 7 mecs...

Le petit Chaperon rouge n'écoute pas sa mère...

Faut donc pas s'étonner après si les gosses font des conneries !!!!!"

Why Nobody is Doing Enterprise Architecture | ZapThink: "There once were two watchmakers, named Hora and Tempus, who made very fine watches. The phones in their workshops rang frequently; new customers were constantly calling them. However, Hora prospered while Tempus became poorer and poorer. In the end, Tempus lost his shop. What was the reason behind this?

The watches consisted of about 1000 parts each. The watches that Tempus made were designed such that, when he had to put down a partly assembled watch (for instance, to answer the phone), it immediately fell into pieces and had to be reassembled from the basic elements.

Hora had designed his watches so that he could put together subassemblies of about ten components each. Ten of these subassemblies could be put together to make a larger sub- assembly. Finally, ten of the larger subassemblies constituted the whole watch. Each subassembly could be put down without falling apart."
