This contest is fueled by the following news: A course at the University of Kansas is devoted to debunking creationism and intelligent design. The course has been canceled after the professor who planned to teach the class caused a true furor by sending an email mocking Christian fundamentalists. 25 students had enrolled in the course, originally called "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism, and Other Religious Mythologies". The course had been scheduled for the spring term. Professor Paul Mirecki, chairman of religious studies, canceled the class after he sent an email to members of a student organization in which he referred to religious conservatives with improper words and said that his course would be a "nice slap" in their collective "big fat face." The structure of a book: Depending on the type of book (encyclopedia, dictionary, textbook, monograph etc), its structure may vary, but generally it contains the following parts: Book jacket Binding Case (soft or hard containing the name and author of the book, sometimes an illustration) End leaf Book back Title page (contains the heading of book, its author and pictogram) Divider Annotation (short description) and review Introduction Text of book itself book block Glossary Content or index (sometimes at the beginning)
