    I like the site with your research projects. However, the presentation is embedded in a website with other presentation and seemingly unrelated information and adverts, and I am getting lost, what ot look out for. Its possibly me as I am not so used to new technologies.

      Hi Lisa, If you single click on the presentation then you will stay on this site. Otherwise, you end up on the slideshare site that has adverts and other information which are beyond my control [as it is free to use]. cheers.
