9. Education: Mark Twain
= = = = = = = = = = = = =

What better way to know Mark Twain than through his writings? Well, a fine documentary film by Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan is a good place to start. This website is designed to complement their film on Twain which originally appeared on PBS.

First-time visitors should start by clicking on the "Interactive Scrapbook" area. Here visitors can take a look through texts, photos, illustrations, and clippings from Twain's time that tell his own personal story and that of American in the late 19th century. Moving on, visitors can browse through some of his writings, take a look at a chronology of Twain's life, and look at a selection of related links. The educational resources here are top-notch, and teachers will find activities such as "A Writer's Inspiration" and "Tall Tales and Dark Sides" that can be used in a variety of history, journalism, or writing courses. Visit this site.

10. Education & Environment: Slaughter of the Innocents
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Animal smuggling has grown to a £6bn-a-year criminal industry, and is exceeded only by the drugs and arms trades. Its illicit profits are a major source of funding for terrorist and militia groups, including al-Qa'ida, and the snaring and slaughtering of animals is driving dozens of species to the brink of extinction.

11. Education: The Tree
= = = = = = = = = = = =

The Tree is a Getty Museum exhibition of 41 images inspired by trees. On the exhibitions website visitors can see five images of trees, from Myoung Ho Lee, William Henry Fox Talbot, Darius Kinsey, Rhea Garen, and Simryn Gill, most accompanied by audio of curators or the artists discussing their work.

Curator Frangoise Reynaud explains how early photographer Talbot may have created his 1842 salt print showing a bare oak tree in winter; living artist Rheas Garen discusses her picture "Tree house", which shows a backyard where a tree dwarfs the house, taken with a large format camera in 1993. The associated book, The Tree in Photographs, compiled by Reynaud, includes eighty-one images selected from the Museum's permanent collection. Visit this site.

12. Immigration: Failure of British Immigration Policy
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Immigration from Eastern Europe into UK was under-estimated by the former British Labour government and hit people's wage packets, Ed Miliband acknowledged today. The Labour leader said economic migration had been allowed to widen the gap between the rich and the poor. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

13. Travel & Education: Fiji Museum
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The Fiji Museum website has a light, airy feel about it, and visitors will find the exhibits are easy to browse through. The "Museum History" link on the website dates the origins of the museum back to the early 1900s, but even as late as the 1960s there was little local interest in the collections and exhibitions of the museum. As a result, the museum flourished as a research center and publishing program, but eventually a lack of funding inhibited that function. Promoting greater community interest in the museum is the goal of the current museum staff, and visitors can see photos from a recent children's fun day under the "Activities and Events" link.

The "New Galleries and Photos Added" link on the left side of the page above the main menu, offers nine galleries, including a "Maritime Gallery", "Masi Gallery" and "Art Gallery". Visitors should click on "Click to Enter" to see photos of the gallery, and "Next Screen" to go to the other eight galleries. The "USP Gallery" shows the museums collection of display birds and mammals, as well as preserved reptile and amphibian specimens, many of which are set in recreated natural settings of beaches and forests.

Trinity of the South - Potential of India-Brazil-South Africa Partnership

The coming together of India, Brazil and South Africa to strengthen the economic partnership is a major development in the area of South-South Cooperation. The three partners represent leading economies in their respective continents and bring together an array of complementary strengths and capabilities that could be exploited for mutual benefit. They have shared political and economic history and development experiences.

There are significant synergies between these countries as they have developed substantial capabilities in different sectors over the years. But these synergies are yet to be fully utilised for their collective benefit and development of the South in general. Visit the Delamere International Bookshop.
