History of the Tablet (largely summarised from Needham 1980, Holmyard 1957)
The Tablet probably first appeared in the West in editions of the psuedo−Aristotlean Secretum Secretorum
which was actually a translation of the Kitab Sirr al−Asar, a book of advice to kings which was translated
into latin by Johannes Hispalensis c. 1140 and by Philip of Tripoli c.1243.
Other translations of the Tablet may have been made during the same period by Plato of Tivoli and Hugh of
Santalla, perhaps from different sources....
As writing articles is learned best through gaining writing experience, it is worth initiating
the learning process by making written notes of any ideas and documenting research
processes and initial results. This way you will generate text that can potentially be
utilised later for articles, or at least you will gain writing experience. In addition, by
writing down thoughts, initial conclusions and suchlike, a researcher can better identify
gaps in his thinking. It is beneficial to have publishing in mind already while conducting
Reports of the death of TV have been greatly
exaggerated. Contrary to predictions that the digital
age would drag people away from TV, we are watching
more TV than ever. Rather than being eroded, people’s
viewing experience is being enriched by social
networks and dedicated social TV apps like Zeebox.
Increasingly, the assumption that a laptop, and a tablet or
mobile are the 'second' and 'third' screens will dissipate.
It will not be enough to simply broadcast a hashtag and
ﬂag a few tweets on the television screen.
The English Baccalaureate was introduced as a performance measure for
schools in England in the 2010 performance tables. It is not a qualification.
The measure recognises where pupils have achieved a C grade or better
at GCSE in English, mathematics, history or geography, two sciences and
a modern or ancient language.
As this document demonstrates, the English Baccalaureate includes
academic subjects highly valued by the Russell Group but it is not currently
required for entry to any Russell Group university.
