Beef, Inc. : fat profits and lean standards( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a struggle for control of the world food market and the battle only promises to escalate in the 21st century. As traditional farming falls victim to agribusiness, small producers and consumers are sadly paying the price. What has been a way of life for generations is now solely a moneymaking venture for big business. In the beef industry, a strategy of "intense livestock production" has been implemented to boost profit margins. Cattle are housed and fattened in overcrowded - and sometimes diseased - feed lots. To combat this, animals are systematically vaccinated, given antibiotics, and pumped with growth hormones with little regard for the potential health risks to consumers or the quality of the end product. Beef Inc. examines a handful of companies that dominate beef production and distribution in North America. This film gives a voice to the independent cattle producer who is often unable to compete with big corporations
La Sagouine : pièce pour une femme seule by Antonine Maillet( Book )

10 editions published between 1980 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In La Sagouine, Maillet first gave written form to the language of Acadie, a language which, she says, has been "distorted by the climate and sharpened by the sea; by the salty air in the larynx and the obsessive beating of the waves in the cars." Her scrubwoman gave disenfranchised Acadians an authentic voice and established Maillet as a writer of international stature." "In this new translation, Wayne Grady brings out the cultural richness of La Sagouine's speech as well as the old scrubwoman's strength of character and irrepressible humour."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depuis cinquante millions d'années, la chauve-souris et ses ancêtres hantent le continent européen. Lorsqu'elles n'hibernent pas en colonies plus ou moins importantes, serrées et blotties au fond des cavités, elles partent à la chasse à travers la campagne. Mammifère sauvage, côtoyant l'homme, la chauve-souris fait tout à l'inverse de lui : elle vole avec ses mains, voit avec ses oreilles, chasse la nuit, dort le jour et la tête en bas ... Mais, depuis quelques années, certaines des trente espèces qui peuplent l'Europe sont menacées d'extinction : la généralisation de l'agriculture intensive, avec l'utilisation massive de pesticides, et une spéléologie de masse mal contrôlée contribuent à mettre sa vie en péril
