In the crucial discussion of Aboriginal education in Canada, there are two distinct schools of thought: parallelism and integrationism. For the first time in one volume, leading thinkers on both sides share their perspectives, allowing readers to examine this complex and emotionally charged issue from all angles. Parallelism argues for Aboriginal self-determination and independent schools with Aboriginal values at their core, while integrationism advocates improving Aboriginal educational achievement within the conventional system. Both sides share the same goal, however: supporting and helping to realize the vast store of untapped potential in Aboriginal communities. Everyone agrees that Aboriginal education in Canada urgently needs improvement. A vigorous and informed debate can only speed the search for solutions. Albert Howard is an independent researcher and writer who has worked as a consultant for government and Aboriginal groups.

Three women came to the remote Cornish cottage that summer: Jenna, only 26 and grieving for the loss of the love of her life; her mother Caro, whose husband Steve had also died; and Laura, who had been married to Caro´s beloved brother Geoff. The house where they were staying was called The Widow´s Cottage, and it was poignantly suitable. In that tiny Cornish community, the three discover strange memories of their forebears, and especially of Tilly, Cora´s mother. They become swept up in the story of Tilly and her family - a story which takes them on an epic journey across the West Country and to the solution of an amazing family mystery. ungekürzt.

Best-selling author, basketball legend, and cultural commentator Kareem Abdul-Jabbar explores the heart of issues that affect Americans today. Since retiring from professional basketball as the NBA´s all-time leading scorer, six-time MVP and Hall of Fame inductee Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has become a lauded observer of culture and society, a New York Times best-selling author, and a regular contributor to The Washington Post, TIME magazine and TIME.com. He now brings that keen insight to the fore in Writings on the Wall: Searching for a New Equality Beyond Black and White, his most incisive and important work of nonfiction in years. He uses his unique blend of erudition, street smarts, and authentic experience in essays on the country´s seemingly irreconcilable partisan divide, both racial and political; parenthood; and his own experiences as an athlete, an African American, and a Muslim. The audiobook is not just a collection of expositions; he also offers keen assessments of and solutions to problems such as racism in sports while speaking candidly about his experiences on the court and off. Timed for publication as the nation debates whom to send to the White House, the combination of plain talk on issues, life lessons, and personal stories places Writings on the Wall squarely in the middle of the conversation, as many of Abdul-Jabbar´s topics are at the top of the national agenda. Whether it is sparring with Donald Trump, within the pages of TIME magazine, or full-length features in The New York Times Magazine, writers, critics, and readers have come to agree on what The Washington Post observed: Abdul-Jabbar ´´has become a vital, dynamic and unorthodox cultural voice.´´ ungekürzt.

This book treats corrosion as it occurs and affects processes in real-world situations, and thus points the way to practical solutions. Topics described include the conditions in which petroleum products are corrosive to metals; corrosion mechanisms of petroleum products; which parts of storage tanks containing crude oils and petroleum products undergo corrosion; dependence of corrosion in tanks on type of petroleum products; aggressiveness of petroleum products to polymeric material; how microorganisms take part in corrosion of tanks and pipes containing petroleum products; which corrosion monitoring methods are used in systems for storage and transportation of petroleum products; what corrosion control measures should be chosen; how to choose coatings for inner and outer surfaces of tanks containing petroleum products; and how different additives (oxygenates, aromatic solvents) to petroleum products and biofuels influence metallic and polymeric materials. The book is of interest to corrosion engineers, materials engineers, oil and gas engineers, petroleum engineers, chemists, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, failure analysts, scientists, and students, designers of tanks, pipelines and other systems for storage and transportation fuels, technicians.

Dr. Alec Groysman graduated in 1973 from the Chemico-Technological University named after Mendeleev in Moscow. He received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry and corrosion in 1983 in Moscow. Dr. Groysman has experience in corrosion and protection from corrosion from 1976 in the oil refining industry. Dr. Groysman deals with kinetics and thermodynamics of corrosion processes, on-line corrosion monitoring, choice and use of corrosion inhibitors, coating systems, selection of appropriate alloys for corrosive conditions, and failure analysis. He has special interests in corrosion education and in the searching of relationships between corrosion, art, history and philosophy. His first book Corrosion for Everybody published by Springer in 2010 received the innovation award winner of Materials Performance Readers` choice in 2012 year in the USA.
