Stress : portrait of a killer( Visual )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stress-related diseases are some of the biggest killers in modern developed society, yet we know little about their root cause. That all changes in this unprecedented look at the revelatory science, based on the latest research by pioneering scientists including neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky, a professor at Stanford University. For over a quater of a century he has been fascinated by why some people are crushed by stress while others seem to thrive on it. -- Container

Biology and the exploration of Mars : report of a study by Colin S Pittendrigh( Book )

6 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until recent years the origin of life and its possible occurrence elsewhere in the universe have been matters for speculation only. The rapid growth of molecular biology since 1940 has, to be sure, made it possible to discuss life's origins in far more precise and explicit terms than was possible earlier; and the subject entered a new experimental phase in the 1950's with successful abiogenic synthesis of important biochemical substances in conditions simulating the presumptive environment of the primitive Earth. But the real transformation that the subject has undergone stems from the spectacular growth of space technology in the last decade. The possibility of life's origin and occurrence on planets other than ours is no longer limited to idle speculation: it has entered the realm of the testable, of science in the strict sense. Given the rockets now available, and especially those available by 1969, it has become fully realistic to consider plans for the biological exploration of Mars. Biology and the Exploration of Mars: Report of a Study concludes that the exploration of Mars--motivated by biological questions--does indeed merit the highest scientific priority in the nation's space program over the next decades. This report further concludes that the favorable opportunities for exploration between 1969 and 1973 can and should be exploited as vigorously as possible. The report considers the potential scientific yields of exploration, the possibility of life occurring on Mars and our ability to detect it with available and foreseeable technology, and gains from further astronomical work from Earth, by Martian fly-by missions, Martian orbiters, and Martian landers. Biology and the Exploration of Mars: Report of a Study contains the findings of the study, a postscript discussing the significance of the observations obtained during the flight of Mariner IV past Mars, and a collection of the working papers that formed the basis of discussions

Quiet rage : the Stanford prison study by Ken Musen( Visual )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1971, Philip Zimbardo, Craig Haney, and Curtis Banks carried out a psychological experiment to test a simple question: What happens when you put good people in an evil place - does humanity win over evil, or does evil triumph? To explore this question, college student volunteers were pretested and randomly assigned to play the role of prisoner or guard in a simulated prison at Stanford University. Although the students were mentally healthy and knew they were taking part in an experiment, some guards soon became sadistic and the prisoners showed signs of acute stress and depression. After only six days, the planned two-week study spun out of control and had to be ended to prevent further abuse of the prisoners. This dramatic demonstration of power of social situations is relevant to many institutional settings, such as the Abu Ghraib Prison in Iraq. Quiet Rage is a 50-minute documentary film from the study that features original footage, flashbacks, post-experiment interviews with prisoners and guards, and comparisons with real-life prisons
Rhythm and meter by Paul Kiparsky( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phonetics and Phonology: Volume 1, Rhythm and Meter compiles original articles by 12 linguists and literary critics who have made important contributions to current theories of phonology, verse meter, and music. This book mainly focuses on English poetry-on the meters of Shakespeare, Milton, Blake, Longfellow, Hopkins, Auden, and other Renaissance dramatists. Poetry in other languages that include Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, and German are also examined. This publication emphasizes metrical theory, formulating and illustrating metrical principles within the tradition of generative metrics and competing traditions. The relationships between rhythm in language and music are likewise analyzed. This volume is useful to linguists, literary critics, and specialists conducting work on rhythm and meter
