Private supplementary tutoring, widely known as shadow education because of the way that it mimics mainstream schooling, has greatly expanded worldwide. It consumes considerable family resources, provides employment for tutors, occupies the time of students, and has a backwash on regular schools. Although such tutoring has become a major industry and a daily activity for students, tutors and families, the research literature has been slow to catch up with the phenomenon. The topic is in some respects difficult to research, precisely because it is shadowy. Contours are indistinct, and the actors may hesitate to share their experiences and perspectives. Presenting methodological lessons from diverse cultures, the book contains chapters from both high-income and low-income settings in Asia, Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. Separately and together, the chapters present valuable insights into the design and conduct of research. The book will assist both consumers and producers of research. Consumers will become better judges of the strengths, weaknesses and orientations of literature on the theme; and producers will gain insights for design of instruments, collection of data, and interpretation of findings.

This book presents a critical analysis of the rules on the contents and effects of contracts included in the proposal for a Common European Sales Law (CESL). The European Commission published this proposal in October 2011 and then withdrew it in December 2014, notwithstanding the support the proposal had received from the European Parliament in February 2014. On 6 May 2015, in its Communication A Digital Single Market Strategy for Europe, the Commission expressed its intention to make an amended legislative proposal (...) further harmonising the main rights and obligations of the parties to a sales contract. The critical comments and suggestions contained in this book, to be understood as lessons to learn from the CESL, intend to help not only the Commission but also other national and supranational actors, both public and private (including courts, lawyers, stakeholders, contract parties, academics and students) in dealing with present and future European and national instruments in the field of contract law. The book is structured into two parts. The first part contains five essays exploring the origin, the ambitions and the possible future role of the CESL and its rules on the contents and effects of contracts. The second part contains specific comments to each of the model rules on the contents and effects of contracts laid down in Chapter 7 CESL (Art. 66-78). Together, the essays and comments in this volume contribute to answering the question of whether and to what extent rules such as those laid down in Art. 66-78 CESL could improve or worsen the position of consumers and businesses in comparison to the correspondent provisions of national contract law. The volume adopts a comparative perspective focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on German and Dutch law.
A funny and intimate look at fatherhood from the actor and writer/director of The Boss and Tammy that combines stories about his own larger-than-life dad and how his experiences raising two daughters with his wife, Melissa McCarthy, are shaped by his own childhood. Though he´s best known for his appearances in the movie Enough Said, as well as his hilarious role as Air Marshall Jon in Bridesmaids, Ben Falcone isn´t a big-shot movie star director at home. There, he´s just Dad. In this winning collection of stories, Ben shares his funny and poignant adventures as the husband of Melissa McCarthy and the father of their two young daughters. He also shares tales from his own childhood in Southern Illinois and life with his father - an outspoken, brilliant, but unconventional man with a big heart and a somewhat casual approach to employment named Steve Falcone. Ben is just an ordinary dad who has his share of fights with other parents blocking his view with their expensive electronic devices at school performances. Navigating the complicated role of being the only male in a house full of women, he finds himself growing more and more concerned as he sounds more and more like his dad. While Steve Falcone may not have been the briefcase and gray flannel suit type, he taught Ben priceless lessons about what matters most in life. A supportive, creative, and downright funny dad, Steve made sure his sons´ lives were never dull - a sense of adventure that carries through this warm, sometimes hilarious, and poignant memoir. Foreword read by Melissa McCarthy and featuring the voices of Stephen, Margaret, and Flynn Falcone. 1. Language: English.

The development and spread of the Internet technology across the globe has fomented the use of a wide range of internet based social and commercial services. For instance, social networks like the Face book, the Twitter, The Picasa, LinkedIn, Tagged, .etc and commercial services as in the case of Amazon.com and the eBay online sellers are few of the multitude of online internet services available on various websites(UNCTAD,2013). Besides, governments are using the internet for divergent purposes the central use being for the provision of public services for the general public including electronic payment of bills and electronic taxation. Various Banks also apply the internet technology to provide facility for electronic payment systems across borders (Ibid). Virtually all types of business enterprises (including Large Size Enterprises, Small and Medium Size enterprises), the government and various consumers are engaged in cross-border e-commerce. All of these actors of Cross-Border E-Commerce(CBEC) demand all the facilities that make CBEC possible (e-commerce infrastructure) and a secure electronic business environment (E-commerce security) for any kind of transactions they make based on the internet medium (Ibid). Despite such demand for e-commerce infrastructure and e-commerce security by the actors of CBEC, the general trend of using the internet for e-commerce particularly CBEC is increasing at an increasing rate (Ibid). There are overhanging problems of regulating CBEC at the international level. Indeed, the effective regulation of CBEC calls for the application of the integrated system of regulatory policies, legislations, institutions and technological framework (Ibid). There are prospects that make the regulation of CBEC possible while there are also challenges that thwart it. The development and spread of the use of Internet for E-commerce is increasing year to year in Ethiopia as good as it does in the global system (INSA, 2014). Accordingly, the CBEC has an increasing trend in Ethiopia. The increase in such commerce has faced multiple of legal issues that need to be regulated in an orchestrated system of Policies, legislations, institutions and the adoption of advanced technologies in Ethiopia. An orchestrated system of e-commerce regulation means making the regulatory issues of cross-border e-commerce the front and central concern of policies, legislations, institutions and ICT technologies that in one or other way deal with e-c Biruk Paulos is a graduate of Masters Degree in Law (LLM) from Ethiopian Civil Service University(ECSU) Institute of Federalism and Legal Studies(IFLS) in 2014.

The memoir of a man who simply wants to be loved. Henry Robson is suffering. He is a bored, balding, failing actor living all alone in rural England. When two choices present themselves, he inadvisably selects both. Initially, a torrid affair seems to tick all the boxes, but any happiness derived from the liaison soon unravels when Henry, untrained as a teacher, accepts employment at a school run by Piers Halliday, a certifiable control freak and true English eccentric. The book charts the adventures and misadventures of this lovable but hapless rogue, a man all the more endearing for his weaknesses. Laugh as slapstick jostles with the surreal; cry at moments of utter poignancy as adopted baby Henry, goaded by his lover, sets off in search of his birth-mother. 1. Language: English.
