Points for sending a powerpoint
 
When I checked to see if my contribution had been added I saw it had been downloaded 43 times. When I got the points I only got 39. Not much difference but still a difference. Why is that?

I think an interesting topic for such a presentation would be Using Web 2.0 tools in the classroom, if it has not already been done.
 
teach+esl&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i64.27449j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 is a search on powerpoints for that topic.  Hopefully that might give you a starting point to find a powerpoint that you can adapt for your presentation. 

Or if that idea does not appeal to you (or has been used previously), this search has results for teacher training workshop ideas https://www.google.com/search?q=topics+for+teacher+training+workshops+in+

help required for correcting sentences
 
Hi 
Can anyone answer my queries about the following sentences, please?
 
can we say "I have realized that I really needed my computer" or only "I realized that I needed my computer" ?
- What is the difference between "My parents, who are 66, still work" and "My parents, who are 66, are still working" Which sentence is better ?
- can we say "Tom is currently working in Paris and earns much money" or only " Tom currently works in Paris and earns much money" ? Difference ?
- can we say "Marc is interested by science" or only " Marc is interested in science" ? If so, what is the difference ?
- and what is the difference between "science" and sciences" ? Can we say both in the previous sentence ?
Many Thanks in advance.

Hi, Ali.
1. Both are correct, but with different meanings. As a general statement, you need to use the first one. You would only use "I realized that I needed my computer" if you are talking about an event in the past in which you came to this realization. "I have realized that I needed my computer" is making a statement about your current situation (of being aware now that you needed your computer at some time in the past).
 
2. Both are correct, and they are nearly the same in meaning. In general, the continuous/progressive tenses are used to emphasize that an event takes place over a period of time, rather than just giving a piece of information. When you say, "Tom is currently working in Paris", the hearer can get a sense of the process. The simple present version is just a statement of fact.
 
3. I wouldn īt use "by"
 
4. "Science" is a general term, encompassing Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Zoology, Astronomy, etc. "Sciences" is not often used, and is usually used as "the sciences", mostly to emphasize that the term "science" refers to a number of disciplines. "Sciences" often has an adjective associated with it, too, such as "the physical sciences" or "the biological sciences."

Present participle with non-continuous verbs
 
Dear colleagues,
is it possible to form a present participle clause from a state (non-continuous) verb?
For example, People who have children should pay less tax. Transform: People having children should pay less tax.
Is that Ok or should we ONLY say "people with children" here? 
 
OR: The man who owns the flat - Transform - The man owning the flat? 
OR: Women who believe in feminism - Transform - women believing in feminism? 
 
I īve heard that non-continuous verbs can īt make -ing participles. Or can they?
 
I īm not talking about gerunds, of course.

I completely agree with Bruce..  I also thoght of people having children meaning people giving birth, although the context would help you determine that that is not what is meant.

THIS WEEK īS WINNER IS ...... Frausue! For her brilliant "it īs a fag-pie!" entry. 
I īm afraid Karagozian is disqualified for using the "F" word and for making me choke on my tea. She is hearby ordered to stand in the corner and hang her head in shame ... even if it was absolutely hilarious.
