Most football fans can only dream of pulling on the shirt of their favourite team and running out in front of thousands of adoring fans. Pitch invaders aside, few of us get to experience that adrenalin rush. Of those who do make it as a professional footballer, even fewer realise the giddy heights of success.

From Pele to Meazza, Maradona to Socrates, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey through the good, the bad and the Hagi.

The use of new technologies in education developed rapidly in the 1990s, as, for example, with the Internet, whose impact on educational practice could not have been predicted seven years ago. Much is now expected of this technology, but has its adoption led to the development of genuinely innovative approaches to teaching and learning?
Originally published in the journal "Alt-J," the papers collected in "The Changing Face of Learning Technology" illustrate how the field of learning technology has developed since the journal was launched in 1993. The volume is divided into four sections: design and evaluation of technology-mediated learning environments, institutional change, learning technology in a networked infrastructure, and reflections on future possibilities, and a short update of each article has been written to highlight developments in the area of the original presentation.
The distinctive approach of this collection provides an interpretative framework for an understanding of the use and design of learning technology. It is hoped that this will stimulate an appreciation of underlying issues and their significance for supporting learning and teaching in both higher and further education.

While sexually explicit writing and art have been around for
millennia, pornography--as an aesthetic, moral, and juridical
category--is a modern invention. The contributors to "Porn
Archives" explore how the production and proliferation of
pornography has been intertwined with the emergence of the archive
as a conceptual and physical site for preserving, cataloguing, and
transmitting documents and artifacts. By segregating and regulating
access to sexually explicit material, archives have helped
constitute pornography as a distinct genre. As a result, porn has
become a site for the production of knowledge, as well as the
production of pleasure.
No matter what the type of garden or outdoor space, trees and shrubs are usually featured. This is because they are so versatile. Depending on the species chosen, shrubs and trees can form the background to a garden, be a focal point or add height to an overlooked garden.

A comprehensive plant directory has A-Z lists of species within different categories - seasons, colour, size etc. The final section of the book looks at how to care for shrubs and trees, giving practical advice on how to prune and clip, and the pests, diseases and other problems to watch out for.
