My name is Henry Gonzalez. I was born in Guatemala and came to the United States thirteen years ago. Im 25 years old and currently attend UH-Downtown to become a math high school teacher. Being part of the UHD Literacy Project has been a learning experience for me as a future educator. It made me realize that students want to be heard; they want to express what they feel and enjoy writing about their personal life experiences. It expanded my knowledge in other content areas and provided more experiences and knowledge to share with future generations. Im really excited to be in the field and advocate students to make smart decisions in their academic journey. Maria Gonzalez was born in Houston, Texas.

De schelmenroman is niet mijn favoriete genre, en dit is er duidelijk zo eentje. Het eerste grote prozawerk van Lanoye (1988) is meteen een afknapper van formaat. Hilarische toestanden, dat wel; het burleske talent van Lanoye komt hier duidelijk tot zijn recht; en de dialogen zijn spetterend. Maar voor mij hoeft het niet: dit is een flutverhaal, en de vele beschrijvende passages zijn opvallend stroef (met zelfs enkele kanjers van taalfouten). Voor de liefhebbers is dit ongetwijfeld leuke, onderhoudende lectuur, voor mij is het een miskleun.
Thap Cham: A Tale of Intrigue, Love and Betrayal as Four Chicago Friends Search for the Treasure of an Ancient Queen.
Thap Cham (pronounced Top Chom) An impressive debut novel, this difficult-to-pronounce but equally hard-to-put-down adventure tale delivers a strong cast of unusual characters whose lives intersect in Chicago and take them across the Pacific to Viet Nam and Cambodia. Weaving together ancient Southeast Asian legend, American military involvement in Viet Nam, and Chicago entrepreneurship in the late eighties, the scope is ambitious and result rewarding. Intelligent female and male leads must trust each other as they pursue a lost treasure and a medieval culture to which their newest friend is the royal heir. Sexy and suspenseful, I cant wait for the sequel! D. Mercer INTRIGUE, MYSTERY, ROMANCE An ancient Queen from Southeast Asia, fleeing a falling empire leaves behind the remaining wealth and heritage of that kingdom hidden in a cave near Thap Cham, Vietnam. A Vietnam photographer and three of his friends in Chicago become entangled in a story of intrigue, love and betrayal as they find a surprising connection to the ancient queen and her treasure. Their quest leads them straight into the arms of two evil brothers who seek to control and rule this ancient land and they discover that appearances are often deceiving. The love and loyalty of these four friends binds them together and cements their relationships as the story unfolds.
In Scandinavia the study of disputes is still a relatively new topic: The papers offered here discuss how conflicts were handled in Scandinavian societies in the Middle Ages before the emergence of strong centralized states. What strategies did people use to contest power, property, rights, honour, and other kinds of material or symbolic assets? Seven essays by Scandinavian scholars are supplemented by contributions from Stephen White, John Hudson and Gerd Althoff, to provide a new baseline for discussing both the strategies pursued in the political game and those used to settle local disputes. Using practice and process as key analytical concepts, these authors explore formal law and litigation in conjunction with non-formal legal proceedings such as out-of-court mediation, rituals, emotional posturing, and feuding. Their insights place the Northern medieval world in a European context of dispute studies. With introductory sections on social structure, sources materials, and the historiography of Scandinavian dispute studies.Contributors are Gerd Althoff, Catharina Andersson, Kim Esmark, Lars Ivar Hansen, Lars Hermanson, John Hudson, Auður G. Magnúsdóttir, Hans Jacob Orning, Helle Vogt and Stephen D. White.
