Theater of war ( Visual )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 435 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
How to draw a bunny by Ray Johnson ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Explores the fascinating, often hilarious, and always enigmatic world of artist and underground icon Ray Johnson whose mysterious suicide frames the film. He was considered a genius whose collages have been exhibited in major museums around the world
The First Amendment project ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fox vs. Franken: In an absurd convergence of circumstances, Fox News filed a lawsuit against liberal imp Al Franken (they objected to his parody of their slogan "fair and balanced") in order to coddle star pundit Bill O'Reilly. The real joke is how badly Fox's efforts to muscle Franken backfired, putting them in the middle of a story so crazy, it reads like something Franken could have invented for one of his own books
Adiabatic Shear Bands in One Dimension ( )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
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
On Stress Collapse in 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
