Legal lynching : racism, injustice, and the death penalty by Jesse Jackson( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legal Lynching is an impassioned rebuttal to advocates of the death penalty: legal executions are unjustly administered, are morally indefensible and fail to deter crime. A comprehensive rejection of the knee-jerk solution to the rise in violent crime, Legal Lynching comprises a history of state-sponsored execution, a consideration of the statistical evidence, an examination of scriptural justification for the taking of a life, and, most chilling, the true-life stories of those condemned to die who were later found to be innocent. With eloquent determination, Jackson examines the recent history of the death penalty. He reflects on high-profile cases, such as that of Mumia Abu-Jamal; assesses the state of the opposition movement; and reveals irrefutable discrepancies in the implementation of the death penalty based on race, class, sex, and geography. By giving lie to the notion that justice is administered blindly and fairly in the life-and-death cases, Jackson's exposition is an inspiring call to action
Route one /USA( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this docudrama, filmmaker Robert Kramer, who has had long periods of residence in Europe, and an expatriate doctor friend of his, set out to rediscover their native country by traveling from Maine to Florida on old US Route 1, a major north-south route built before the interstate highway system was constructed. The doctor has just returned from a long stint of public service in Africa, and is undecided about what to do with his life. Despite an apparently determined attempt to dig into the seedy side of American life, the travelers run into one inspirational scene after another, and run into such luminaries as Pat Robertson and Jesse Jackson on the presidential campaign trail, and performers like Ossie Davis and Helen Hayes." ̃Clarke Fountain, Rovi

The intrinsic generation and flow of rhythmic activity in the hippocampus by Jesse Jackson( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The hippocampus is a multimodal allocortical structure known for its role in learning and memory. Neuronal activity in the hippocampus displays rhythmic patterns of activity including delta, theta and gamma band activities during specific brain states. These oscillatory patterns of activity are typically thought to arise from neuronal inputs to the hippocampus. Within this thesis it is shown that theta, gamma, and delta rhythms can be self-generated by the intrinsic circuits of the intact hippocampus. Different frequencies of rhythms were generated in specific hippocampal sub-regions demonstrating that separate regions have neural circuit properties that promote different rhythmic patterns. The coordination between hippocampal regions arises through dynamic phase coupling between autonomous oscillators. Finally, a novel form of phase synchronization was found to support communication between hippocampal regions in a manner contrary to contemporary views on hippocampal circuit organization. These results suggest that a major component of activity and communication in the hippocampus arises from the self-organized synchronization that occurs between weakly coupled intrinsically generated oscillators.
