Share Book Recommendations With Your Friends, Join Book Clubs, Answer Trivia School Libraries: Are They Relevant in the Age of Google? Over the past 10 years, the number of schools that have trained teacher-librarians has declined dramatically. While many reasons for this drop exist, the primary culprit is school budget cuts. But with the advance of the Internet and e-books, many district and school leaders are asking questions: Do school libraries, and librarians, really matter? Have Google and the abundance of digital devices made libraries and librarians unnecessary? These are fair questions, and librarians — and their libraries — must make a valid case for their ongoing existence. Dynamic public libraries are reinventing themselves to remain relevant to their communities. There are some great opportunities for the new school library. Digital Research Resources.

Why problems occur Pronunciation problems happen when speaking a second language because most people are used to hearing and making sounds which only exist in their mother tongue. There are many sounds in Cantonese and English that are similar. To make language sounds we move our jaw, tongue, lips, and the vocal cords in our throat in a number of different ways. How do you solve the problems? Here are a few suggestions on how to train your brain: Learn to recognise that there are differences between some English sounds and some Cantonese sounds. Practise moving your jaw, tongue, lips etc. as correctly as possible so that you are able to make the problematic English sounds clearly. Many of the materials listed on P3 give explanations and show pictures of where to put your tongue or how to move your lips etc.

About Boilerplate | Big Red Hair Boilerplate: History’s Mechanical Marvel, ostensibly the biography of a 19th-century robot soldier, is an illustrated hardcover book that deftly blends historical fiction with science fiction. It dramatizes formative events at the dawn of the 20th century through tales of the robot and its inventor, Archibald Campion, who thinks his machine can “prevent the deaths of men in the conflicts of nations.” Boilerplate charges into combat alongside Teddy Roosevelt and Lawrence of Arabia, builds railroads in Africa, makes silent movies, and more, all while hobnobbing with the likes of Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla. Also featured as a supporting character is Archie's friend Frank Reade Jr., hero of dime novels and of our companion book Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention. Paul came up with the concept for Boilerplate long before we did this book. Boilerplate art prints, comics, and other merchandise may be purchased from our online shop. “A tour de force” —Publishers Weekly [more]
