That leaves the field wide open for novel or ingenuous suggestions about early (or even late) learning and the teaching that successfully provides it.

Standing at the front step of Asia, the area north of the Black Sea has always seemed significant to recent explorer such as Greeks or Romans. Now we can stretch the imagination beyond ancient ideas to those genes that contributed to the most ancient migrations of the human species.

How often do we get to see a great ray in its natural habitat, especially in Europe. Here, you could visit an Italian nature reserve and get to know animals that compare with the giant mantas (almost.)
