Master´s Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Communications - Multimedia, Internet, New Technologies, grade: none, University of Nairobi (School of Journalism), course: Communication studies, language: English, abstract: This study set out to investigate the extent to which public technical training institutes in Nairobi County have adopted ICT in the learning environment. Out of a population of four institutes, two were selected based on the total population of students which was over seven hundred. The other reason was that one was ISO certified while the other was in the process of being ISO certified. Data was collected by use of questionnaires which were for three groups of stakeholders. These were the administrators, teachers and students. From the study it can be concluded that the public funded technical institutes are facing several challenges as they seek to adopt ICT into the learning environment. These challenges can be grouped into three categories: These are Infrastructure, Training and E-Content. From the study the administrators in general were cognizant of the importance of adopting ICT into the learning environment. However the colleges were faced by a myriad of challenges ranging from the high cost of increasing the number of computer to upgrading the whole infrastructure. Despite having official websites they were not as yet interactive as they would have wished. The training of teachers was ongoing although most of the teachers showed little interest with some viewing it as a waste of time. The teachers felt that the institutions did not have enough computers and rooms to cater for the needs of all students. Also the administration needed to provide accompanying infrastructure such projectors and connections in various rooms. If the teachers are provided with computers at departmental level, then this would encourage them to learn through self drive. More computer based activities needed to be introduced such as the transmission of marks, notes and correspondence online. The study showed that the students were the most exposed to information technologies than the teachers and that they were very positive about the introduction of ICT related technologies for learning.
Rule #1: Stay the Udlast away from the Dragons. Rule #2: Defy the Council or die trying.WHERE DOES IT END? Over a generation ago, the Council ordered the systematic extermination of the magic wielding, Runic Race. In the face of the damning orders, a few Dragonics refused to participate and instead demanded justice. But their call to defiance came too late - no Runics survived. Now, those against the Council´s oppressive reign have long since been outcast to the fringes of society - their numbers and determination dwindling. Alaister Paine, Commander of the Rogue Dragonics, leads the Resistance with little hope of success, until he deciphers one of his predecessor´s logs. Within the cryptic text, Alaister reveals that one Runic - a girl of untold power - was hidden from the Council´s grasp. Find the girl, and the Rogues will finally be able to enact a long lost Prophecy to bring freedom back to Solera. Trouble is... they are not the only ones searching for the last Soleran Runic.Praise about Defiance: Dragonics & Runics Part I: ´´I haven´t felt this way since I first read Edgar Rice Burroughs...´´For more information on Defiance: Dragonics & Runics Part I and the entire Dragonics & Runics Series, be sure to visit the official website at www.defythecouncil.com ungekürzt.

At the official website for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall (http://thewall-usa.com/), the following description is given regarding the symbols that either precede or follow each of the 58,272 names that are indelibly etched into The Wall: ´´WHAT ARE THE SYMBOLS BY THE NAMES?´´ The diamonds and pluses (crosses) indicate whether a person is confirmed dead (those who died in accidents are included) or missing/whereabouts unknown. The diamond indicates a person´s death was confirmed. The pluses (crosses) indicate that a person remains missing and unaccounted for and in no way are meant to be a religious symbol. A plus (cross) symbol can be easily turned into a diamond if a person is declared dead (such as the return of their remains). A circle (as a symbol of life) will be inscribed around the plus if the person comes back alive. As of this time, no circle appears on the wall. On the West wall the symbols precede the names, while on the East wall they follow the names. This is the story of how three American Green Berets (of which I was one), along with our ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) counterparts, and one hundred sixty Montagnard Strikers, succeeded in accomplishing what a Battalion of the 4th Division could not do - and in the process, insured that A Diamond on The Wall preceded the name of one fallen American Warrior; and how that recovery mission still impacts my life today. ungekürzt.

When painter Shane Bellamy attempts to relaunch his life by moving into a remote summer cottage on the Missouri river, he becomes enthralled by the property´s original owners, famed depression-era artist Gustav Wilhelm, and his wife, Marlena; painting their long-dead secrets of betrayal and revenge in a series of increasingly bizarre works, Shane finds that he has not only recreated their dark story on canvas, but he has brought it dreadfully back to life all around him. Visit the official website: www.riverhousebook.com. In the wake of his divorce and the loss of his New York art job, Shane is bereft and directionless. The cottage provides the perfect escape: small, picturesque, and lonely. There, he becomes fascinated with the history of the cottage, and that of its larger sister property, the Riverhouse, now demolished. Shane embarks on an unusual painting project: recreating the Riverhouse on canvas, as it might have looked when it was first built. As the painting develops, surprising Shane both with its style and its strange, silent strength, he finds that the image is a sort of portal, inviting him into the Riverhouse´s past. He learns of its owners, portrait artist Gustav Wilhelm, known for his arrogance as much as his genius, and of Wilhelm´s wife, the beautiful but ignored Marlena. Their story blooms in Shane´s mind like a dark rose, full of deepening mystery and harrowing secrets. Gradually, Shane comes to realize that the decades´ old drama isn´t yet finished. Ghosts haunt the cottage, particularly the intriguing Marlena, and Shane finds himself inexplicably drawn to her, despite her otherworldly hatred of his tentative new love, art agent Christiana. Eventually, Shane finds himself caught in the spiraling collision course of his own life and that of the Riverhouse, which has secretly risen from its dead foundation. He knows he should escape and yet he cannot seem to walk away. After all, he thinks, ghosts can´t ha... ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Doug Lee.
