John: The bow just missed us but for what seemed like an eternity we scraped and bashed along the rusty barnacle-covered ship’s hull. Tarquin and I were screaming, praying, cursing and clinging onto each other for dear life. Finally, we saw the stern of the great ship and feared we would be sucked into the propellers.

The yacht climbed the huge wave and I was sure we were going to capsize, but somehow or other we stayed upright and plunged down into the trough between the waves.
Podcasting for ELT What podcasting is Types of ELT podcasts Using podcasts in class and for homework How to subscribe Producing your own podcast What you need Conclusion What podcasting is Podcasting (a portmanteau of the words iPod and broadcasting) is the name given to the publishing of audio (usually mp3 files) via the Internet, designed to be downloaded and listened to on a portable mp3 player of any type, or on a personal computer. Podcasting has now become popular as an alternative way of providing 'radio' type content that can be listened to whenever, wherever and as many times as the listener wants. The idea that a podcast can be produced by just about anyone with access to the Internet has generated a lot of interest in educational circles. In ELT, the appeal is not only in providing additional listening input for students, but that students themselves can become involved in recording and producing the podcast. Using podcasts in class and for homework Most podcasts use a weblog as their homepage.

The Value of Intellectual Property Assets A crucial point about legal protection of intellectual property is that it turns intangible assets into exclusive property rights, albeit for a limited period of time. It enables your SME to claim ownership over its intangible assets and exploit them to their maximum potential. In short, IP protection makes intangible assets a bit more tangible by turning them into valuable exclusive assets that can often be traded in the market place. If the innovative ideas, creative designs and powerful brands of your SME are not legally protected by IP rights, then these may be freely and legally used by any other enterprise without limitation.
