Information Technologies and Marginalization in African Market Economies
Laura Mann summarises her lecture on information technologies and marginalization in African market economies, part of the OII's Society and the Internet Lecture Series. It is often argued that poor and marginalized communities self perpetuate their poverty by inhabiting closed networks.

However, the rapidly increasing use of the I

3.2 Assisting, supporting and teaching

The idea that teaching assistants ‘assist’ teachers and ‘support’ learning has been the official view of a teaching assistant’s role for a long time and many policy makers continue to regard their work in this way.

Global Climate Change: Perspectives from the Past
People are constantly asking how today's climate compares with detailed climate records from tens of thousands of years ago to tens of millions of years ago. To the best of our knowledge, we have to search back 55 million years to find a time interval where the rate temperature changes were anywhere near the rate of change that is occurring now.

The Australia-US relationship: its place in our histories in the context of Asia
One hundred years ago this year the Great White fleet sailed into Sydney harbor to a rapturous reception from Australian's hoping that America would protect us from the threats we feared from rising economic giants in Asia. In 1941 that hope come true. Today Australians still regards American primacy in Asia as the foundation of their security, and they have become perhaps Americas most consistent and supportive ally as a result.
