Thank you for clicking onto my Website.
My name is Alec Gill.
When I first designed and published this website (1997) it was to promote my public speaking work. 
Life, however, has moved on. I now have a more full-time role at the University of Hull with the Study Advice Service. I am employed by them as both a tutor (to help students with their academic problems) and as their MultiMedia developer.
The present purpose of my website is to provide visitors with useful information which may benefit their personal growth, education, and development in life.

This site was originally recommended by the  BBC EDUCATION WEB GUIDE - "the best learning resources on the Net are only a click away". But that was many moons ago and their link is no longer active.

MEDIA INQUIRIES:
An unwitting by-product of this website is that I am often contacted by a variety of media people (television, radio, newspapers, etc.) requesting information and interviews - especially when there are any events linked to superstitions such as Friday the Thirteenth. If I can be of any help, then I am happy to oblige - if I am free. If you pay a fee, that is even better for me - and helps fund my ongoing research.

CONTENTS - provides a detailed list of all fifty-five (55) files contained in this Website. Much of this material originated as teaching handouts. The site was extended as part of my HETC (Higher Education Teaching Certificate) qualification (1999) under a Project called "Teaching Text on the World Wide Web". 
In a later update (Jan.2001) I endeavoured to make this website much more harmonious in its content and useful to visitors from around the world.

KNOWLEDGE is POWER:
If any of the material on my site is useful to you in your learning, education, teaching, or personal needs, then please feel free to use it for your own benefit, future development and success in life. My only request is that you too freely pass on the positive knowledge you learn in life for the benefit of others. Knowledge is power and I feel that the Internet will accelerate global democracy and increase international  peace and understanding. This is obviously a corny line: but I see my website like a market stall set out in the Global Village - and all the items are free for the taking.

FEEDBACK:
Your comments and feedback on my site will be welcomed - especially if you spot any errors that need to be corrected or you can add some useful information and good weblinks.
