LAPD( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Jennings Reporting--LAPD" looks at what happens when the nation's most famous police officer takes over the nation's most infamous police department. The result is a complex tale about the struggle for power--from the top brass to the rank and file cops to the gang members who plague the streets of Los Angeles. When William J. Bratton was sworn in as the 54th chief of the Los Angeles Police Department, the LAPD was in turmoil and the city was under siege. The scandals of the recent past--Rodney King, O.J. Simpson, and Rampart--left police officers demoralized. LAPD's finest were staying in their cars, engaging in what Bratton calls "smiling and waving policing," and the streets were left to the gangs. When Bratton arrived, Los Angeles was the murder capital of America. "LAPD" spends a year inside the toughest division in the city. South East division is 10 square miles where some 65 gangs rule the streets. The violence is staggering. It spares no one, not even the police. Riding with gang officers, following detectives through investigations, observing the top brass planning policy, and talking with community members in the aftermath of police crackdowns, this program explores how a department with a troubled reputation struggles to stem the violence and gain the trust of a skeptical community. "LAPD" draws a complicated, challenging, and at times tragic portrait of the devastation wrought by gang warfare and the struggle of a police department to regain control

BUILD : a tool for maintaining consistency in modular systems by Massachusetts Institute of Technology( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BUILD is a tool for keeping modular system in a consistent state by managing the construction tasks (e.g. compilation, linking etc.) associated with such systems. It employs a user supplied system model and a procedural description of a task to be performed in order to perform the task. This differs from existing tools which do not explicitly separate knowledge about systems from knowledge about how systems are manipulated. Build provides a static framework for modeling systems and handling construction requests that makes use of programming environment specific definitions. By altering the set of definitions, BUILD can be extended to work with new programming environments and to perform new tasks. Keywords: High level languages; BUILD Computer program; C programming language; Systems engineering. (Author)

This special scratches the surface of the Muslim world in the hopes of educating viewers to understand that the majority of Muslims in no way tolerate what Osama bin Laden has done. To understand, too, that there is an accumulation of resentment about the United States and a deep desire on behalf of all Muslims that the United States would understand them better. A recognition that Islam is unsettled by the rush of modernity which marks the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, and yet, how many Muslims wish to take a bigger part and enjoy the benefits of a more modern life"--Container
