Body corporate : who owns your genes?( Visual )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the battle that will decide who owns your body and the biological building blocks that make you the person that you are. Right now across the globe there is a major legal and scientific battle raging over one simple question: should we allow individuals and corporations to patent genes? Some biotech companies say yes, claiming patents reward medical research and promote the investigation of life saving treatments. Others see it very differently, describing patenting as a biotech land-grab that's less about patients and more about greed."--Container

An Eastern Arrernte and Kalkadoon desert woman, Hetti is senior curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, daughter of political activist Charles Perkins and sister of filmmaker Rachel Perkins (First Australians, Bran Nue Dae). With great generosity, she shares her extraordinary knowledge of Aboriginal art, visiting the homes and studios of artists in remote desert communities, the tropical top end, and in urban environments. She also brings personal anecdotes to the fore, recalling her family's own story, and her father's legacy: "Art for me is a way for our people to share stories and allow a wider community to understand our history and us as a people." Past and present, tradition and modernity, the imagination and individual experiences of artists, converge. art + soul views Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art through a political prism, which allows for a richer appreciation of the artworks - and thereby of Aboriginal Australia and the life forces that underpin it. The series celebrates the survival and resilience of a whole culture."

Millionaires' mission( Visual )

in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains the first two episodes of this series. Eight successful British business leaders have been challenged by leading development agency World Vision to improve the living standards of a remote Ugandan farming community. With a combined fortune of more than $1.3 billion (600 million pounds) and expertise ranging from construction to marketing, they will need to use their business skills to tackle the seemingly intractable issue of poverty. To help launch their ideas, the entrepreneurs have each donated $32,500 (15,000 pounds) to a joint fund. They are exchanging five-star lifestyles for three weeks living in a makeshift camp without running water or electricity. But can eight bosses who are used to getting their own way work together to help people in the village? In a region so poor, the average daily wage is just $1.10 and the entrepreneurs need to be ruled by their heads, not just their hearts, if they are to succeed. Episode one sees the entrepreneurs embark on a two-day journey to the remote Ugandan community where they will be working and confronted with the realities of life in an African village. The usually hardheaded business brains are soon overwhelmed by requests from people in desperate need. Tension surfaces in the group and construction boss Steven Morgan decides to go it alone with a project to provide clean water for school children, while media expert Seb Bishop has a brainwave that could be a real money-spinner for the community. In Episode two work gets under way on an innovative hotel that could prove to be a real money-spinner for the villagers. But another big idea nearly ends in disaster when a misunderstanding leads to a confrontation with local farmers. Work grinds to a halt and the entrepreneurs find themselves in very hot water
