links in PPTJun 12, 2015

Dear Irene,

It was an amazing and brilliant training - thank you so much!
Thank you for the PPT. I have just downloaded it, but the links don't display, at least on my MACicon_frown.gif. And it is a big shame because it would be very useful to be able to access those websites. Would you be so kind to provide the list of URLs in a separate doc?
Thank you in advance.

All the best,

Anna
