Gasland : Can you light your water on fire? by Josh Fox( Visual )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009, Delaware River Basin native Josh Fox was presented with an interesting proposal: lease his family lands to a natural gas company for a new method of drilling called hydraulic fracturing, and get a check for $100,000. He wouldn't have to do anything but sit back and collect the money. Curious about the process, Fox embarks on an exploration of other areas where natural gas drilling was already in progress, to observe firsthand any potential downsides. In Dimock, Pennsylvania, a town surrounded by fracking activity, he hears stories of wells exploding, black water, flammable drinking water, headaches, pains, long-term sickness. Fox goes on to tour 25 states, cataloging an endless string of frustrated and sick Americans whose land has become toxic and explaining the legislation pushed through by former vice president Dick Cheney, exempting energy companies from key environmental acts--exemptions that make fracking invisible to any regulation or monitoring. Fox becomes an advocate for the cause of the people whose complaints are ignored by the natural gas corporations and the American government. The film documents the pitfalls and perils--borne of avarice of the most bloodless, ruthless kind--of the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in American history, with the potential to poison millions
Gasland by Josh Fox( Visual )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sequel to the documentary Gasland, Gasland, Part II continues filmmaker Josh Fox's exploration of the dangers of the process of natural gas extraction known as hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as "fracking", chronicling the spread of the practice further in the U.S. as well as in 32 countries worldwide
The human experience( Visual )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Human Experience narrates the true story of two brothers who embark on a remarkable quest to find meaning--and light--in a seemingly dark world. They begin their journey with the homeless on the streets of New York City, and continue on to spend time with orphaned children in Peru and the enigmatic lepers of Ghana. Their epic voyage across continents--and through tremendous suffering, hope, love, and forgiveness--awakens them to the beauty and resilience of the human spirit

In sickness and in health( Visual )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2002, Maneely and her partner Diane Marini were one of seven New Jersey couples who filed a collective lawsuit in hopes of legalizing same-sex marriage. In 2004, Maneely was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (better known as Lou Gehrig's disease). The film follows Maneely's last days, including the effects her struggles had on Marini, their five children, and the lesbian community

Gasland : a film by Josh Fox.( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009, filmmaker Josh Fox learned his land was on top of the Marcellus Shale, a giant reservoir of natural gas, and that he would be paid to lease his land for natural gas extraction. Fox documented his cross-country trek to find out if the controversial process of hydraulic fracking is actually safe. What he unearthed was a shocking discovery about a practice that is understudied and inadequately regulated, and he raced to find answers about fracking before it was too late
The Behavior of the optical and X-Ray emission from Scorpius X-1 by B. J McNamara( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In 1970, Hiltner & Mook reported the results of the first multiyear study of the optical emission from Sco X-1. They found that the Sco X-1 B-magnitude histograms changed from year to year. Subsequent multiwavelength campaigns confirmed the variable nature of these optical histograms and also found that the X-ray and optical emissions were only correlated when Sco X-1 was brighter than about B=12.6. Models had suggested that the optical emission from this source arose from X-rays reprocessed in an accretion disk surrounding the central neutron star. It was therefore difficult to explain why the optical and X-ray fluxes were not more closely correlated. In 1994 and 1995, two new simultaneous optical and X-ray campaigns on Sco X-1 were conducted with the Burst and Transient Source Experiment on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory and the 1 m Yale telescope at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory. Using these data and models by Psaltis, Lamb, & Miller, it is now possible to provide a qualitative picture of how the X-ray and optical emissions from Sco X-1 are related. Differences in the B-magnitude histograms are caused by variations in the mass accretion rate and the relatively short time period typically covered by optical investigations. The tilted-[Greek letter gamma] pattern seen in plots of the simultaneous X-ray and optical emission from Sco X-1 arises from (1) the nearly linear relation between the optical B magnitude and the mass accretion rate in the range 13.3>=B>=12.3 and an asymptotic behavior in the B magnitude outside this range, and (2) a double-valued relation between the X-ray emission and mass accretion rate along the normal branch and lower flaring branch of this source."
