San Francisco Good Times: As the Vietnam war dragged on and Richard Nixon was elected to his first term as President, a group of people in San Francisco began publishing an "underground" newspaper called the San Francisco Good Times in the belief that out of the ferment of dissent a new community based on new ways of living and cooperation was taking shape. The paper was to be the voice of this community and a motive force in its creation. This film is a chronicle of people who worked on the paper and events they lived through and covered. The people who worked together to produce the paper went on to form a commune. In November 1972 the Good Times commune stopped publishing the newspaper. Highlights include a Black Panther demonstration in support of Huey Newton; stills of public nudity and marijuana smoking; an interview with Bill Graham; outtakes from the song "Sweet Marijuana"; Pete Townshend of "The Who" interview; the "People's Park" land squatting experiment that ended in armed confrontation; herbiculture; astrological column written by The Berkeley Astrology Guild; performance outtakes from The Floating Lotus Opera Company; interview with Timothy Leary; the formation of the Good Times commune ; San Francisco street life & happenings; members of Good Times arrested and put in prison; and more

Documents the migration of rural Southern blacks from the segregated South to Chicago. Cultural and political gains become offset by overcrowding and increasing ghettoization, as Northern politicians ignore resentment that explodes in the Sixties. Finally, Chicago gets its first African-American mayor; many families move out of the ghetto to middle-class success; many others remain mired in a growing "underclass". Includes historical footage and personal interviews

One in a million by Shona Laing( Visual )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This film attempts to persuade people who are opposed to the fluoridation of drinking water that they are mistaken in thinking that fluoride, in minute quantities, is toxic, may cause cancer or heart or kidney disease, leads to bone fractures, or is unconstitutional. The film emphasizes the low cost of fluoridation and the very great benefits it bestows in the marked reduction of dental caries. A town meeting is shown in which angry, upset people raise their objections to fluoridation. To the man who says that fluoridation is against the laws of nature, that it is a poison, Dr. Benjamin Spock, a noted pediatrician, replies that the fluoride that occurs naturally in drinking water in some areas of the country haslong prevented tooth decay in the people living in those areas. He also says that water to which fluoride is added is no different than water in which fluoride occurs naturally. Both kinds of water prevent tooth decay, and he supports any measure that furthers the health of children. To the man who claims that fluoride attacks the heart and kidneys and increases the risk of cancer, Dr. Paul Dudley White, a famous cardiologist, replies that there is no evidence to suggest thatfluoride in any way affects or causes these diseases. To the man who claims that fluoridation is an infringement of human rights and a communist conspiracy, Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago replies that it is within the responsibility of democratic governments to provide health measures for the good of all its people. In the five years that the city of Chicago has had fluoridated water, Daley says no ill effects from it have been discovered. At the film's conclusion, the viewer is asked what he will say when he has an opportunity to talk about the adoption of fluoridation in his community. Will he resist spending ten cents per year per child; will he deny protection from dental caries to forty million children; will he refuse to allow one part of fluoride per million parts of water for this public benefit? Spock, White, and Daley do not appear at the staged town meeting. Spock and White appear to have been filmed in their offices. Daley has been filmed outside of a Chicago municipal building. Shots include: gushing and dripping water faucets; a baby drinking a bottle of water; a little boy eating an ice cream cone
MUST Waste Water Treatment System( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this program was to develop a second-generation water treatment unit that would treat liquid wastes (except human) from the MUST Hospital and produce (1) water, safe for ground discharge, and (2) potable water. As the previous flotation system exhibited problems, electrochemical, ultrafiltration, and reverse-osmosis units were investigated for primary treatment application. The electrochemical unit evinced difficulty in controlling current flow; the ultrafilters developed severe fouling problems; the reverse-osmosis system proved satisfactory, even after repeated treatment of raw wastes, to the extent of producing a 95-percent product recovery. The organic breakthrough that evolved with the reverse-osmosis system was treated with activated carbon for partial success. When ozonation was added as a final step for removing the organic materials, the product water purification increased to a high of 95 percent. (Author)
