How to create a WIKI
"A wiki is a type of collaborative website with integrated tools
for adding and editing content.
The online encyclopedia Wikipedia.org is one popular example, WikiHow.com
is another. But not all wikis give public editorial rights as Wikipedia does.
A wiki can also be created for a classroom or a club, with an administrator
who decides what pages are editable, and who can do the editing.
Learn more about creating wikis at the following sites... "

"When I come to meet a man, a forsaken man
He is alone, he has no home, no family here
No brother, no mother, no sister, no other
He cries to me, he is tired
Where does he send his message?
To what, to whom, to why, to where does he send it?..."

Rabbit-Proof Fence
"is a 2002 Australian drama film based on the book Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence
by Doris Pilkington Garimara. It is a true story concerning the author's mother,
as well as two other young mixed-race Aboriginal girls, who ran away from the
Moore River Native Settlement, north of Perth, in order to return to their
Aboriginal families, after having been placed there in 1931...
The film formed a part of a major debate in contemporary Australia
over the stolen generations - where Aboriginal children separated
from their parents by the State were taken to residential schools."

US elections has echoes in the past
"It's the most exciting US election campaign for decades but, as a historian, I'm also struck by deeper currents under the surface of events...
Empire and liberty have been recurrent and often conflicting themes
in America's development and I think they're also reflected
in this year's rival presidential candidates."
by Professor David Reynolds
Presenter of "America, Empire of Liberty" on BBC Radio 4.

He teaches 20th Century history at the University of Cambridge.
