On the morning of September 11, 2001, brothers Jules and Gedeon Naudet were working on a documentary about a rookie New York City firefighter. Hearing a roar in the sky, Jules turned his camera upward - just in time to film the only existing image of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center Tower 1. With cameras rolling, the Naudets follow NYC firefighters into the heart of what would be known as Ground Zero. A striking tribute to real-life heroes who rose to extraordinary acts of courage and compassion

In fact, while whites account for only eight percent of total U.S. population growth, they make up 73 percent of growth in exurban areas. Visit Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, a town that successfully ousted the Aryan Nations in 2000, but remains more than 94 percent white. Explore both the allure and complexity of living in a homogenous community

Big men( Visual )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Big Men is a real-life Treasure of the Sierra Madre, an epic tale about ambitious people who uncover a massive and exquisitely rare pot of gold in one of the poorest places on earth. In 2007, U.S-based Kosmos Energy discovers the first oil in the history of the West African republic of Ghana. What follows over the next five years is a twisting tale of greed and deception, which director Rachel Boynton films with razor-sharp journalistic skill. While in Ghana she makes side trips to nearby Nigeria, whose own oil reserves have been responsible for a vicious cycle of exploitation with little appreciable benefit to the country itself. Big Men travels from company meetings about oil deals worth billions to gatherings of heavily armed militants preparing to strike. And along the way it poses vital questions about what fundamentally motivates us: Is unbridled greed an intrinsic part of human nature? And can what unites us ever be greater than what divides us. A remarkable verité portrait of the deeper implications of global capitalism and the quest for oil, acclaim and cash that affects us all"--Outcast Films website, viewed Jan. 20, 2014
