Promotions / Tectonic Hazards - A Level fieldwork opportunity in Spain!
« Last post by Geofieldwork Ltd on September 17, 2018, 01:23:53 PM »
Did you know that there is a dormant volcanic area in Northern Spain?
Over 40 monogenetic cones in the Garrotxa Volcanic Park, last active only 11,000 years ago.
We run exciting and original field study courses in this area and students get to

a) see "inside" a volcano and learn about the different types of volcanic eruption

b) undertake a hazard and vulnerability field exercise to map out risk and then
investigate how resilience can be improved

c) climb to the crater rim of one of the volcanoes

and

d) enjoy all of this under the beautiful Spanish sunshine!

Have a look at our website to find out more

General Discussion / Danny Dorling at North Staffs GA
« Last post by Kate Russell on September 06, 2018, 08:51:18 PM »
THE NORTH STAFFORDSHIRE  BRANCH of the Geographical Association presents a talk       
“What Brexit tells us about the British” given by Professor Danny Dorling , Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography, Fellow of St Peter's College, Oxford; on Wednesday September 26th 2018 at 7.30pm.
The lecture will be held in Room R001 at the Science Centre, STAFFORDSHIRE UNIVERSITY (Leek Rd site next to Sixth Form College) Stoke-on-Trent (near Stoke Station) SATNAV  ST4 2DF.
All are welcome.
£2 for a single lecture or open to personal or school members of North Staffs GA Branch and Shropshire Branch.

Contact Bob Jones for further details robertgjones@yahoo.com or 01785 815521

Whatever kind of Brexit occurs – hard, soft, or even a cancellation and staying in the European Union – the public and especially school children (who had no vote) are going to be asking questions about why this has happened and what it means. Just under a year before this talk was given, extra money had to be found to pay for Brexit in the November 2017 budget than could be found for the NHS. In early 2018 there was an unprecedented rise in deaths among elderly people in The UK.  On the same day as that budget, we also learnt that Britain would lose a place in the International Court of Justice for the first time since the court’s inception in 1946. But what can Geographers tell us about Brexit and what does Brexit tell us about the British?
The arguing and making of claims and counter-claims about Britain’s geographical status that is currently underway will not improve the image of Britain in the eyes of much of the rest of the world’s people.  But there is an upside. The British may well learn a great deal about themselves as a result. Not least that Britain, and even Brexit, has its roots in the British Empire. Traditionally British Geography, a subject that was partly born in this country due to Empire has not been very good at explaining what the Empire was and why it mattered. Brexit may well be the point at which we finally learn about the importance of geography: from the Irish border through to the modern day priorities of India.

General Discussion / How to do a full uninstall on Mac OS 10.7
« Last post by johntimber on June 21, 2018, 03:40:52 PM »
Hi,

I need to do a clean install of my space explorer on my mac os, but i don`t know how to full uninstall it. In the faq section there is only windows` instructions.Every time i install it i still have the same profiles and settings that i had before. Can anybody help me?
I need a clean install because my space explorer is not working with photoshop CS5 (12.0.4) 64bits anymore, not even the buttons! In my macbook it works flawlessly. I think something went wrong when i changed photoshop to 32bit mode and went back. I don`t have any problem with others softwares like inDesign, Chrome and etc.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Good morning

Does anyone have a copy of this programme that was broadcast by Panorama back in 2003 for Comic Relief? It is a long shot I know. There are no online versions I can find.

Thanks in advance

I know there is a separate section for jobs, but this is a fantastic opportunity to work in the most beautiful part of the British Isles - so I wanted to make sure people saw it!

https://www.jobtrain.co.uk/iomgovjobs/displayjob.aspx?jobid=7113

A Geography Teacher is required at Castle Rushen High School.  This is a permanent post.

We don't have OFSTED.  There is a relocation package for the right candidate.

Here's a picture of the local village - Castletown.  Why wouldn't you want to work here?!

Closing date is 18th May.  Good luck.
