It is also examining whether sites are giving a false impression of room availability and "rushing" customers into booking decisions.

'Trust' The CMA, which launched its investigation into online booking sites in October, says it has sent warning letters to "a range of sites", demanding they review their practices to make sure they are fair and comply with consumer protection law.

It can be hard to know which poems will spur your middle and high schoolers into deep, meaningful discussion and which will leave them, ahem, yawning. So we asked experienced teachers to share their favorites—the punch-in-the-gut poems that always get a reaction, even from teens.

Here’s what they had to say about the best poems for middle school and high school students. 1. Snow by David Berman Captures a narrative in miniature with a creative structure. 2.

According to UN-endorsed projections, global demand for fresh water will exceed supply by 40% in 2030, thanks to a combination of climate change, human action and population growth.

It shouldn't be a surprise, then, that Cape Town is just the tip of the iceberg. 1.
