Bill Brysons amüsante Reise in das Herz Amerikas. Mit Mitte zwanzig kehrt Bill Bryson dem verschlafenen Mittleren Westen Amerikas den Rücken, um Jahre später voll Heimweh zurückzukehren. In einem alten Chevrolet macht er sich auf die 14.000 Meilen lange Fahrt durch das Amerika seiner Jugend. Und mit liebevoller Ironie beschreibt er die Stationen seiner Reise, erzählt von Begegnungen mit schrulligen Einwohnern und von Orten, die er kurzerhand in Coma oder Dead Squaw umbenennt. Dabei zelebriert er, pendelnd zwischen Witz und Wehmut, auch einmal mehr den amerikanischen Traum von Freiheit und Abenteuer. • Vom Autor der Bestseller „Eine kurze Geschichte von fast allem“ und „Picknick mit Bären“.

The 2012 GCSE English results prompted significant controversy, which ultimately resulted in an application for judicial review. This report sets out the background to these events and identifies lessons to be learned. The problems with GCSE English can be traced back to the 2007-09 development phase of the qualification- in particular the turbulence which resulted from the shift away from a mostly linear to a modular system, combined with a high proportion of controlled assessment and generous marking tolerances. Exam board experts raised concerns at the time, but these were not acted upon by the regulator (the then-interim Ofqual). Further difficulties arose because of pressures from the school accountability system. The problems experienced with GCSE English in 2012 highlighted serious weaknesses in the moderation of speaking and listening, with consequences for grade awarding. The current status of Ofqual, as an independent regulator accountable to Parliament, is the right one. However, the Coalition Government is bringing in wholesale changes to GCSEs and A levels, to a tight timetable and at the same time. Ofqual must have systems in place. The Committee is also concerned that there is a rush towards separate exam systems for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, without careful reflection on what might be lost, or consensus that this is the right thing to do.

Ein atemberaubendes Drama über die Last von Geheimnissen Nach dem tragischen Tod seiner Frau Caroline, die als Journalistin bei einem Auslandsdreh in Afghanistan ums Leben gekommen ist, erträgt Michael es nicht länger im gemeinsamen Heim in Wales. In dem Versuch, ein neues Leben zu beginnen, zieht er nach London, wo er auf die Nelsons trifft: Josh, Samantha und ihre zwei Töchter wohnen im Haus nebenan, und aus einer Zufallsbekanntschaft wird schnell – allzu schnell? – eine intensive Freundschaft. Michael geht bei den Nelsons wie selbstverständlich ein und aus, bis er eines Samstagnachmittags ihre Hintertür halb offen stehend vorfindet. In dem Gefühl, dass etwas nicht stimmt, betritt er das augenscheinlich leere Haus ... und setzt damit eine Folge von Ereignissen in Gang, die ihrer aller Leben schlagartig und auf immer verändern wird. Ein tiefgreifender, packender Roman über Verlust, Schuld und die heimtückische Natur von Geheimnissen.
