My Kid Could Paint That( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracks the overnight celebrity of Marla Olmstead, a toddler who creates gallery-worthy paintings on the dining room table of her family home. Sales of her paintings reach $300,000. Then the bubble burst. When a 2005 profile by "60 minutes" suggests that Marla had help making her paintings, the finger is pointed at her father, an amateur artist and night manager at Frito Lay. Almost overnight, her family is ensnared in a web of accusation and denial - the burden of proof placed squarely in their lap. Is Marla a child prodigy or an innocent victim of a hoax?
Theater of war( Visual )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An examination of Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage and her children", and the political philosophies the play represents. Preparing for The Public Theater's 2006 production of Brecht's anti-war play, Meryl Streep allows a camera crew to document her rehearsal process and interest in the work. Moreover, the life and times of Brecht himself are followed, most notably the playwrites' escape from Nazi Germany, subsequent exile, testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee, and his eventual return to the country where the play was first staged. Along with backstage scenes and discussion by theatre notables such as Tony Kushner and Streep's costar Kevin Kline, the documentary seeks to depict the history and inspirations underlying the play's themes

The First Amendment project( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some assembly required: This film examines the protests during the 2004 Republican National Convention focusing on the disconnect between society's desire for order and the NYPD's overzealous application of force in stamping out potential threats to the placid image of the GOP's "big tent." Mainstream media downplayed the protests to the point of near-invisibility during the convention, so this portrait of articulate protesters serves as a corrective
Some Aspects of Adiabatic Shear Bands( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dynamics of adiabatic shear band formation is considered making use of a simplified thermo/visco/plastic flow law. A new numerical solution is used to follow the growth of a perturbation from initiation, through early growth and severe localization, to a slowly varying terminal configuration. Asymptotic analyses predict the early and late stage patterns, but the timing and structure of the abrupt transition to severe localization can only be studied numerically, to date. A characteristic feature of the process is that temperature and plastic strain rate begin to localize immediately, but only slowly, whereas the stress first evolves almost as if there were no perturbation, but then collapses rapidly when severe localization occurs
Adiabatic Shear Bands in One Dimension( )

This report summarizes the progress made at the Ballistic Research Laboratory to date in analyzing and understanding the dynamical processes that cause the formation of adiabatic shear bands and the influence of various physical parameters on their formation. Adiabatic shear
