The author is proposing new theory that:
1. The Earth started as a small object, some 4.­5 billion years ago, more or less. That is the Big Bang.
2. The Big Bang is, still in action, creating matter, in all forms. That is causing the Earth to expand and grow.
3. The origin of the Big Bang is coming from our Milky Way Galaxy.
4. New matter creation manifest in various forms, such as volcanoes, geysers, mud volcano, hydro thermal vents
5. Sedimentary rocks did not come from older rocks erosion; rather, it came from hydro thermal vents, or geysers.
6. Earth quacks are symptom of the expanding Earth.
7. Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and other seas, are results of expanding Earth.

Author:

He was born in Dublin, in Ireland, son of the Dublin writer Melesina Trench,­[2] his elder brother was Francis Chenevix Trench.­[3] He went to school at Harrow, and graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge in 1829.­[4] In 1830 he visited Spain. While incumbent of Curdridge Chapel near Bishop's Waltham in Hampshire, he published (1835) The Story of Justin Martyr and Other Poems, which was favourably received, and was followed in 1838 by Sabbation, Honor Neale, and other Poems, and in 1842 by Poems from Eastern Sources. These volumes revealed the author as the most gifted of the immediate disciples of Wordsworth, with a warmer colouring and more pronounced ecclesiastical sympathies than the master, and strong affinities to Alfred Lord Tennyson, John Keble and Richard Monckton Milnes

John Timbs (17 August 1801 ? 6 March 1875), English antiquary, was born in Clerkenwell, London.

He was educated at a private school at Hemel Hempstead, and in his sixteenth year apprenticed to a druggist and printer at Dorking. He had early shown literary capacity, and when nineteen began to write for the Monthly Magazine. A year later he became secretary to Sir Richard Phillips, its proprietor, and permanently adopted literature as a profession.

He was successively editor of the Mirror of Literature, the Harlequin, The Literary World, and sub-­editor of the Illustrated London News. He was also founder and first editor of Year-­Book of Science and Art. His published works amounted to more than one hundred and fifty volumes. In 1834 he was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London.

This edited book is a comparative study on teacher education across ten major Englishspeaking regions of the world (USA, English Canada, England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand). The focus on individual regions is reflective of a comparative approach with a long tradition going back to the turn of the twentieth century. This approach is still valid at the present time as it provides one of the best ways of initially structuring our understanding of teacher education at the macro level in order to facilitate communication of the situation crossnationally and prepare the way for higher levels of analyses. To this end, the book has twelve chapters: An introductory chapter details the focus of the book. This is followed by a chapter on each of the ten regions.­Each of these chapters, written by an expert in the field: focuses on general trends in teacher education rather than on any specific aspect of it; focuses primarily on . . .

pubOne.­info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. In editing the present volume I have thought it well to follow the same rule which I laid down for myself in editing The Study of Words, and have made no alteration in the text of Dr. Trench’s work (the fifth edition). Any corrections or additions that seemed to be demanded owing to the progress of lexicographical knowledge have been reserved for the foot-­notes, and these can always be distinguished from those in the original by the square brackets [thus] within which they are placed.
