Others may live with relatives or friends. Some will live with foster or adoptive families or in residential homes with a range of different carers. Whatever

War of The Century - Part 19
This part of the documentary begins with Stalin about to give a speech at the time he knew they were winning the war. You can hear the bell ringing to order everybody to stop clapping as nobody dared be the first to stop. There is also reference to German propaganda and the kind of media the German had access to. The situation was almost hopeless for the German by spring 1945. German pilots tried to stop the Red Army but were not successful. They took part in a suicide mission but they were de

2.4.4 Historiography

This is the writing of history, another type of source that relies on words. Many of the things we said about literature apply to historiography as well, and we won't need to repeat them. The reason we think it's worth having a separate paragraph on historiography is that where literature is associated with art, history-writing is today associated with truth. As a result, it's a natural instinct to read ancient historians with the expectation that they are more reliable sources than literatur

2.5 Air circulation

At this stage, air circulation enters and plays a dual role. Firstly, winds transmit moisture horizontally from one location to another. In this way, moisture derived from oceanic evaporation can be transported many miles to a land mass. Secondly, convective or vertical currents arising from unequal heating or cooling can transmit moisture upwards. When it cools, some of the water vapour condenses. It is from these currents that most precipitation develops.

2.3.4 Lateralisation

It has long been suspected that unusual patterns of cerebral lateralisation (i.e. the ‘division of labour’ between left and right hemispheres of the brain) may have some connection with dyslexia. Early researchers noticed an apparent excess of left-handedness in children with specific reading difficulties (and their relatives). However, most dyslexic people are in fact right-handed, and most left-handed people are not dyslexic. Nonetheless, large-scale analyses of the research find
