Grover Cleveland, again! : a treasury of American presidents by Ken Burns( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How many children have said at some point that they want to grow up to be president? Well, this book will show them it really is possible. It doesn't matter if you weigh as much as William Howard Taft (332 pounds) or as little as James Madison (100 pounds); are as tall as Abraham Lincoln, who was 6'4", or as short as Madison (again!), who was 5'4"; are born really rich like George Washington or really poor like Ulysses S. Grant; whether you're a Unitarian like Millard Fillmore or a Catholic like John F. Kennedy; if you have a learning difference like Woodrow Wilson or a physical disability like Franklin D. Roosevelt. Thankfully, you can now be elected president regardless of your race or skin color. And it certainly doesn't matter whether you're a man or a women (even though there hasn't been a woman president ... yet). Even you could grow up to be president!

Opium : how an ancient flower shaped and poisoned our world by John H Halpern( Book )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2017, opioid addiction claimed nearly fifty thousand lives. Even as the overdose crisis ravages our nation, few understand how it came to be. Halpern and Blistein begin with the discovery of poppy artifacts in ancient Mesopotamia, and go on to explore how Greek physicians and obscure chemists discovered opium's effects and refined its power, how colonial empires marketed it around the world, and eventually how international drug companies developed a range of powerful synthetic opioids that led to an epidemic of addiction. More importantly, they examine how we can overcome today's overdose epidemic. -- adapted from jacket

The story of the war on cancer spans centuries and continents. It is a scientific story, but also a deeply human one: of doctors, researchers, and especially patients whothrough courage, suffering, and occasional hubrispushed the boundaries of knowledge. These people helped define cancer as the scourge of the modern age, and then mobilized the federal government and private industry to wage an all-out campaign against ita campaign we are still fighting. Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Siddhartha Mukherjee, tells the complete story of cancer, from its first description in an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research institutions. At six hours, the film interweaves a sweeping historical narrative; with intimate stories about contemporary patients; and an investigation into the latest scientific breakthroughs that may have brought us, at long last, to the brink of lasting cures. This DVD is the full six hour series of an edited version that was broadcast on SBS TV
