I took this out of the library to attempt a reread
Internet searches are being recorded, driving habits are being monitored, employees are surveiled, shoppers are observed, recorded, and analyzed, and personal phone calls?
Shoppers and diners are observed and analyzed; Internet searches are monitored and used as evidence in court. It is big business that collects most of the data about us. But increasingly, it's the government that's using it.
The documentary also looks at how the FBI, the Border Patrol, police departments and schools are using biometric technologies to establish identity as well as an inside peek at an AOL division that works solely to satisfy the requests of law enforcement for information about AOL's members.
Excerpt from main website Please visit the official website for more information: Big Bucks, Big Pharma: Between andindustry spending on direct-to-consumer advertising or DTC rose over percent.
Focusing on the industry's marketing practices, media scholars and health professionals help viewers understand the ways in which direct-to-consumer DTC pharmaceutical advertising glamorizes and normalizes the use of prescription medication, and works in tandem with promotion to doctors.
Combined, these industry practices shape how both patients and doctors understand and relate to disease and treatment. Ultimately, Big Bucks, Big Pharma challenges us to ask important questions about the consequences of relying on a for-profit industry for our health and well-being.
Big Ideas for a Small Planet: There's nothing alternative about these technologies anymore. Because whatever one's environmental, political, or religious opinions; whatever one's race, sex, or economic standing; whomever of us goes without water for a week cries blood.
The rampant overdevelopment of agriculture, housing and industry increase the demands for fresh water well beyond the finite supply, resulting in the desertification of the earth.
Corporate giants force developing countries to privatize their water supply for profit. Wall Street investors target desalination and mass bulk water export schemes. Corrupt governments use water for economic and political gain. Military control of water emerges and a new geo-political map and power structure forms, setting the stage for world water wars.
We follow numerous worldwide examples of people fighting for their basic right to water, from court cases to violent revolutions to U. As Maude Barlow proclaims, "This is our revolution, this is our war".
A line is crossed as water becomes a commodity. He can do calculations to decimal places in his head, and learn a language in a week. This documentary follows Daniel as he travels to America to meet the scientists who are convinced he may hold the key to unlocking similar abilities in everyone.
That's what they wanted. It's not that we had a successful visit from the National Cancer Institute in which they determined that "this treatment works great" and they decided that we should go into Phase 2 clinical trials which would be sponsored by them.
This gave the idea of some high-ups at the FDA to conspire with the pharmaceutical company so that they could steal the invention from me and get it, because it was good.
That's the whole story. Burzynski Burzynski is the story of a pioneering medical doctor and PhD biochemist who discovered and invented a new form of cancer therapy.
This documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons - resulting in the largest and most convoluted defeat against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.
When Eric Merola set out to make this film, his initial intention was to explore for himself the remarkable stories of countless patients who have claimed to have been cured of what was once a terminal cancer diagnosis.
Particularly since most of these patients had never undergone any "traditional" treatments before starting Dr. Merola felt it was a story that is both topical and of invaluable importance.
Eric spent months traveling the United States interviewing various cancer survivors who were treated by Dr. After obtaining these on-camera interviews, Eric was granted permission from both the patients and the Burzynski Clinic to publish all original medical records confirming diagnosis and recovery of these survivors.
Eric Merola was granted written permission to publicly exhibit these medical records in the film and supporting website. This documentary also exposes some of the deepest corruption within the medical industry in relation to the business of treating cancer. It is the opinion of director and producer Eric Merola, that the story contained in his documentary Burzynski-makes the "Watergate scandal" look like a kindergarten pottery class in comparison.Hollywood doesn't do history justice that is for sure.
Listen to one of America's greatest living historians, the one and only Howard Zinn talk about the movies. "We, the governments of Great Britain and the United States, in the name of India, Burma, Malaya, Australia, British East Africa, British Guiana, Hong Kong, Siam.
As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria. Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo.
Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from caninariojana.com Out of This World was a brief but quality ABC sci-fi series. Sadly some idiot wiped nearly all of the fourteen stories, leaving unlucky thirteen missing, and but one for posterity.
Science/Technology Documentaries "Science is but a perversion of itself unless it has as its ultimate goal the betterment of humanity." –Nikola Tesla. In this informal talk given at the Taos Talking Film Festival, Zinn turns his attention to Hollywood, the stories it tells and the ones it doesn’t and makes a few suggestions for films he’d love to see/5().
