    Language Education in the Primary Years provides a coherent and structured account of language and learning and of language pedagogy using a functional grammar approach. It provides a metalanguage essential for the preparation of teachers of English language in the primary years and appropriate for practicing educators developing their own teaching programs. The book considers contemporary debates such as 'process versus product' and 'phonic versus whole language', and addresses all important topics including oral language in the classroom, grammatical differences between speech and writing, visual literacy, the impact of technology, the teaching of spelling, models of grammar, and language planning and assessment. The overriding premise of this cumulative work is that a functional grammar provides a structured and systematic way to teach knowledge about language while fostering growth and independence in language use.

    Managing Distribution Retention Time to Improve Water Quality: Phase I (Awwa Research Foundation Reports)
    Malcolm Brandt, Jonathan Clement, James Powell When water leaves a treatment works and travels through a distribution system, its quality, with respect to many chemical and biological parameters, will degrade. The quality of the delivered water will be largely influenced by: The quality of treated water supplied into the network The condition of distribution assets within the network The retention time within the network. The water industry has focused predominantly on the quality of treated water and the physical condition of distribution assets when improving the quality of water at the customer's tap. However the quality of the water delivered is also affected by the time the water is retained in the different elements of the distribution network. Retention time is controlled both by the physical characteristics of the system and the operational regime. Physical characteristics such as pipe roughness may change throughout the life of the asset or be modified by rehabilitation. Operational activities may be structured: for example, pump scheduling and planned maintenance, or uncontrolled as in the case of demand driven operational responses. Changes to water quality result from the reactions in the bulk water with time and through the chemical and biological reactions with the distribution system materials with which The chemical and biological reactions in the bulk water are relatively well understood enabling development of models and software for predicting changes. The reactions of the water at the pipe-water interface are more complex and less well understood. The aim of this research is to demonstrate that water quality within distribution networks can be managed effectively by controlling retention time and to develop practical and pragmatic methodologies for doing so.  
    The 2009-2014 World Outlook for Sunscreen and Sunblock Lotions and Oils
    Icon Group This econometric study covers the world outlook for sunscreen and sunblock lotions and oils across more than 200 countries. For each year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the country in question (in millions of U.S. dollars), the percent share the country is of the region and of the globe. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a country vis-à-vis others. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved. This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the 230 countries of the world). This study gives, however, my estimates for the worldwide latent demand, or the P.I.E., for sunscreen and sunblock lotions and oils. It also shows how the P.I.E. is divided across the world's regional and national markets. For each country, I also show my estimates of how the P.I.E. grows over time (positive or negative growth). In order to make these estimates, a multi-stage methodology was employed that is often taught in courses on international strategic planning at graduate schools of business.
