Daddy & papa by Johnny Symons( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daddy & Papa is a one-hour documentary video that opens a candid window on the personal, cultural and political implications of gay fatherhood. From surrogacy, foster care and interracial adoption to the complexities of gay divorce and the legal battles around gay parenting, Daddy & Papa presents a revealing look at some of the gay fathers who are breaking new ground in the ever-changing landscape of the American family.This film utilizes an accessible, first-person narrative to create an intimate portrayal of gay dads, following the filmmaker and his partner on their rocky, and sometimes amusing, journey to parenthood. Along the way, we meet other gay dads: a single father confronting the isolation of raising at-risk kids in a gay and largely childless neighborhood; a healthcare worker battling Florida state law to adopt the child who for five years has called him "Dad;" and a couple and their nine-year-old daughter, whose biggest problem is not that her parents are gay, but that they are divorced. Daddy & Papa takes an unflinching look at some of the complex issues surrounding gay fatherhood, including the effect of sexual orientation on children, the challenge of white gay men raising African American kids, the changing relationship of gay fathers to the gay community and the real impact on children of being raised without a mother. In the process, it reveals a new picture of what it means to be a family."--Publisher's description

In defense of food : an eater's manifesto( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of food journalist Pollan's thesis. Humans used to know how to eat well, he argues, but the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists. As a result, we face today a complex culinary landscape dense with bad advice and foods that are not "real." Indeed, plain old eating is being replaced by an obsession with nutrition that is, paradoxically, ruining our health, not to mention our meals. Pollan's advice is: "Don't eat anything that your great-great grandmother would not recognize as food." Looking at what science does and does not know about diet and health, he proposes a new way to think about what to eat, informed by ecology and tradition rather than by the nutrient-by-nutrient approach"--

My Father, My Brother, and Me( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2004, FRONTLINE correspondent Dave Iverson received the same news that had been delivered to his father and older brother years earlier: He had Parkinson's disease, a degenerative neurological disorder that affects more than 1 million Americans, the causes of which remain largely unknown and the cure for which has proved frustratingly elusive. In My Father, My Brother, and Me, Iverson sets off on a personal journey to understand the disease that has taken such a toll on his family. Along the way, he meets some remarkable people -- a leading Parkinson's researcher whose encounter with "frozen" heroin addicts led to a major breakthrough; a Parkinson's sufferer given a new lease on life by an experimental brain surgery; and a geneticist who helped identify some of the gene mutations responsible for Parkinson's and who is now working on drugs to fix them. Iverson also has intimate conversations with fellow Parkinson's sufferers actor Michael J. Fox and writer Michael Kinsley, who describe how they became caught up in the politics of Parkinson's research after the Bush administration greatly restricted federal funding for promising stem cell research in 2001, three years before Iverson got his diagnosis."--Frontline web site
Suburban Jihad( Visual )

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

In the aftermath of 9/11, and in the shadow of the nation's capital, an elite team of FBI counter-terror agents undertake a series of landmark domestic terror investigations that bring to life the complex national security and human dramas at the heart of America's war on terror. The first case leads the FBI to a group of paintball players in Northern Virginia and their spiritual leader, Ali Al-Timimi, a controversial Muslim scholar. Al-Timimi is accused of directing these men to attend terrorist training camps overseas and wage war on American soldiers. While carrying out this investigation, FBI agents come across an even more sinister plot involving yet another man from Northern Virginia. His name is Ahmed Omar Abu Ali and he too is connected to Al-Timimi. Abu Ali, one of the only American citizens to confess membership in Al Qaeda, is charged with plotting to bomb commercial airplanes and assassinate the President of the United States. Members of the Northern Virginia Muslim community are stunned and accuse the government of overzealousness, bringing to life the delicate nature of these cases and the people swept up by them. This is the Inside Story of the many challenges facing American law enforcement and the FBI in this new age of terror
