With the Southern Ute Indian tribe recruited as a key promoter, Sage Remington--a radical Southern Ute activist--pits himself against his own tribal government and their politically connected lawyer, Sam Maynes.

William and the windmill( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in Multiple languages and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With only a library book as his guide, 14-year-old William Kamkwamba builds a windmill in his Malawian village that changes his life forever. Using junk parts and an inexhaustible imagination, he harnesses enough energy to power a generator that saves his family from famine and resuscitates his dying farming community. An instant media sensation, the teen soon has the ability to chart a previously unimaginable future of Ivy League schools and speaking tours. But despite the help of an American entrepreneur who helps navigate his success, some changes threaten to capsize him. He was once just a kid back home, but suddenly he's a village leader. Away at school, the famous boy inventor struggles on a steep learning curve. Cameras capture both the dramatic upheavals and subtle shifts of perspective in this inspiring story of a young man facing the changes that a humble homemade windmill set in motion."--Container

The uncerainty principle determines the nonlocality of quantum mechanics by Jonathan Oppenheim( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Quantum information can be negative by Jonathan Oppenheim( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dr. Jonathan Oppenheim discusses that quantum information is radically different to classical information. For example, it can be negative -- in a sense, after you are given quantum information, you can know less. This can be given a precise operational meaning by quantifying how much quantum communication is needed to transfer part of a quantum state. Another example: two quantum channels, both with a transmission capacity of zero, can be combined to yield a nonzero capacity, something impossible in the classical world. He also discusses applications of quantum information theory to fundamental physics
Quantum correlations and causal structures by Mohamed Issam Ibnouhsein( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent works in foundations of quantum (field) theory and relativistic quantum information try to better grasp the interplay between the structure of quantum correlations and the constraints imposed by causality on physical operations. Chapter 1 is dedicated to the study of the conceptual implications of quantum nonlocality, a concept that subsumes that of entanglement in a certain way. We detail the recent information-theoretic approaches to understanding the structure of nonlocal correlations, and the issues the latter raise concerning the ability of local observers to isolate a system from its environment. Chapter 2 reviews in what sense imposing Poincaré invariance affects entanglement detection and quantification procedures. This invariance ultimately forces a description of all quantum systems within the framework of quantum field theory, which leads to the impossibility of localized finite-energy states and to the divergence of all entanglement measures for local observers. We provide a solution to these two problems by showing that there exists a generic equivalence between a finite spatial resolution of the measurement apparatus and the exclusion of high-energy degrees of freedom from the definition of the observed system. This equivalence allows for an epistemic interpretation of the standard quantum formalism describing nonrelativistic localized systems and their correlations, hence a clarification of the origin of the finite measures of entanglement between such systems. Chapter 3 presents a recent theoretical framework that predicts the existence of correlations with indefinite causal order. In analogy to the information-theoretic approaches to nonlocal correlations, we introduce some principles that constrain the structure of such correlations, which is a first step toward a clear understanding of their physical origin
Out of the shadow a film( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Filmed over five years, Out of the shadow chronicles the filmmaker's mother, Millie, who suffers from schizophrenia. With grace and compassion, this intimate film illustrates the painful complexities of severe mental illness and the woefully inadequate public health system set up to deal with it. A story of madness and dignity, shame and love, Out of the shadow illuminates a national plight through one family's struggle and helps to dispel the stigmas and misconceptions surrounding this harrowing illness"--Disc container
