Global economics and oil : Jeff Rubin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interview with Jeff Rubin, former chief strategist and chief economist at CIBC World Markets, a division of one of Canada's largest banks. Jeff Rubin has always been highly quotable, and frequently controversial, and he was one of the first analysts to predict, back in 2000, that the price of oil would go to 1 00. Within two years, it almost tripled. Jeff has sometimes been called a maverick economist, and he's the author of a recent book entitled, Why Your World Is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller. In it he writes that without affordable oil, the world will be forced to de-globalize and rediscover local, autonomous economies. His name has since persisted in headlines, and he is known as a dynamic and engaging speaker, always controversial and fresh-minded. Jeff believes the new world will be more local and less global, with a reinvigoration of local cultures and customs. As a prophet, he has a pretty good track record
Alberta Tarsands : Andrew Nikiforuk( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interview with Andrew Nikiforuk, an award-winning Canadian author and environmental journalist who has earned an enviable reputation as being honest, stylish and provocative. He has written about a wide range of issues including melting glaciers, educational shams, peak oil, the destruction of the boreal forest and most recently, the tar sands in his award-winning book The Alberta Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent. The tar sands are by far Canada's largest energy project, its greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions, and arguably the project which has transformed what was once a respectable, responsible, middle-ranked power into an environmental rogue state dominated by petro dollars. In this Green Interview, Nikiforuk talks about the Alberta tar sands and their far-reaching implications

White like me : race, racism & white privilege in America by Paul E Calarco( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

White Like Me, based on the work of acclaimed anti-racist educator and author Tim Wise, explores race and racism in the US through the lens of whiteness and white privilege. In a stunning reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy and claims that we've entered a post-racial society, Wise offers a fascinating look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class, and argues that our failure as a society to come to terms with this legacy of white privilege continues to perpetuate racial inequality and race-driven political resentments today. For years, Tim Wisés bestselling books and spellbinding lectures have challenged some of our most basic assumptions about race in America. White Like Me is the first film to bring the full range of his work to the screen ́ to show how white privilege continues to shape individual attitudes, electoral politics, and government policy in ways too many white people never stop to think about

Changing minds : the inside story( Visual )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following on from the critical acclaim of series one, Changing Minds: The Inside Story journeys with mentally ill patients on their road to recovery, from breaking point to breakthrough. This second series emphasises the plight of younger patients, aged 18 and over, who are most at risk of developing mental illness. Raw and emotional, profound and at times funny, the three-part series is an intimate observation of daily life in the locked mental health units of Sydney's Campbelltown Hospital and in the homes of patients cared for by community mental health teams. The series follows ten characters whose mental illnesses do not discriminate in age or social standing. They include Nicholas (aged 18), a bullied schoolboy who relieves his anxiety by self-harming; Daniel (20) whose cannabis addiction is masking psychotic symptoms; Taileah (20), a recently graduated nurse whose stress manifests in distressing auditory hallucinations; Nathan (24) whose schizophrenia allows him to chat with Hitler and Muhammad Ali; Joel (18), a rebellious teenager struggling with a tragic past; Fabrice (36), a barrister's son with persecutory delusions about demons and devils; and David (47) who believes he's Elvis Presley. The patients agreed to be filmed while unwell, and formally consented again when recovered, with the discretion and agreement of their psychiatrists. By following the treating teams in Campbelltown Hospital's Mental Health Unit - including Dr Mark Cross and Clinical Nurse Consultant Steve Barnes - taboos are challenged and stigmas attacked. It's sometimes uncomfortable viewing, but the message is clear - help is available, mental illness is treatable. How will your mind change? Changing Minds: The Inside Story Series 2 screens during Mental As ... the ABC's week long initiative in support of Mental Health Week which aims to encourage Australians to start talking about mental illness and to give to mental health research

From Flint : voices from a poisoned city( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film goes beyond the news headlines to spotlight the impact of the devastating water contamination crisis on the people of Flint, Michigan. The film highlights the stories of residents who were personally injured, along with the work of local organizations and individuals that rallied to support them. Flint is a city of 100,000 people, with 41% living below the poverty line and an African-American majority. The city switched in 2014 to water from the polluted Flint River to save money, but the new water supply wasn't properly treated. Lead from aging lines leached into the local water supply, along with coliform bacteria and other contaminants, creating a serious health crisis. Up to 12,000 children may have been exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking water. Some residents were also forced to abandon their homes without warning. Residents describe their personal struggles, including the serious medical issues that afflicted them -- seizures, rashes, problems affecting newborns and young children -- as well as their anger over a government that continually failed to protect them. The citizens of Flint make their displeasure known through emotional testimonies to officials about the impact on children and families, as well as through large, peaceful protests. The film also highlights how residents and local organizations have come together to help and support one another through the crisis. Ultimately, the Flint water crisis was a failure of government at every level, with important lessons for other cities and towns. From Flint concludes by noting the indictment of several officials responsible for the crisis and its mismanagement, though the impact of their actions irreversibly linger
