The impact of satellites on cable communications : a report by Abram Chayes( Book )

5 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two recent developments in communications satellite technology may speed the coming of cable tv (catv) networks. First, increases in satellite power are reducing the cost of ground stations. Second, a connection between one ground station, the satellite, and any other ground station is no longer necessarily fixed. Now one station can communicate with another, and then have the circuit switched or reconnected to some other station. Lower-cost ground stations could make possible a multi-channel network of broadcast receiving stations. Circuit switching could make possible a switched two-way communication network that would allow a group of catv systems to interconnect for special interest programs at any time. A proposal to start building such a system has been made by Hughes Aircraft. It calls for two 12-channel satellites, a number of receive-only earth stations, and two two-way stations to transmit to any of the others. Two steps may be taken to improve program quality and reduce centralized program control: 1) require the operator to donate some capacity to a free national instructional tv network; 2) authorization for operation should require experimentation and be for a limited time only.

The United States and the international criminal court : national security and international law by Sarah B Sewall( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A growing international consensus supports the idea of holding individuals responsible for the most egregious violations of human rights such as genocide. This consensus lies behind the recent efforts to create an International Criminal Court (ICC). The United States, however, has refused to support the ICC, citing concerns that the Court may pose a threat to national security. This volume brings legal, historical, military, and political perspectives to an examination of U.S. concerns about the ICC. The contributors assess not only the potential national security risks that would be associate
