Cops under fire( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For years, minority groups had complained of widespread abuse of power and brutality among police. But white America largely chose to ignore or deny that these claims might be true. Then, in 1991, the nation was galvanized by the videotaped beating of Rodney King by officers of the LAPD. In the years since, waves of scandal and reform have swept across the nation's police departments. Law enforcement officials have been forced to examine their adversarial stance to some communities and purge forces of members with a history of brutality. From incidents like the Amadou Diallo shooting to controversial practices such as racial profiling, reasons are examined for the widespread public distrust of the police. And find out what is being done to correct this important problem, from refining officer training programs to breaking the police's "blue wall of silence."

"In 1971, President Nixon declared a war on cancer. His stated aim was to discover a cure within five years. Nearly thirty years later, this remains elusive, but strides are being made. THE WAR ON CANCER chronicles three decades of research and hope, breakthroughs and failure. Scientists detail the latest developments, discoveries that are letting them understand the disease on a molecular level. We'll see how these findings might someday be used to develop powerful new treatments as well as early detection and preventative measures. We'll also see how certain procedures developed over the years, and examine the impact they have made on survival rates and ongoing research. From top labs to doctor's offices where people struggle with the disease on a daily basis, this is a fascinating look at the ongoing efforts to tame one of man's deadliest adversaries."--A & E website

Blood and Wall Signal Simulator for Doppler Ultrasound Signal Analysis Algorithm Development( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Doppler ultrasound instruments, used for the detection and monitoring of vascular disease, require a means of separating the large, low frequency Doppler signal from the vessel wall from the signal arising from blood followed by a means of analysing the blood flow signal in order to characterise the flow conditions. This is normally achieved by using a high-pass filter that removes the signal reflected from the vessel wall. Unfortunately, the filter also removes the low frequency Doppler signals arising from slow moving blood. A better signal segmentation method that reduces the loss of signal from slowly moving blood is needed to permit the measurement of lower blood velocities. A signal simulator that generates Doppler signals that include the contributions from blood and vessel wall will be very useful for the development of new Doppler signal segmentation methods. This work presents a new simulator incorporating the contribution of blood and vessel wall movements; the characteristics of the simulator output signal are similar to those found in practice
