The End Of America Part 1 Video Description: From award-winning filmmakers Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern (The Devil Came on Horseback and The Trials of Darryl Hunt) comes this provocative and expertly crafted film, THE END OF AMERICA, based on The New York Times best seller by the same name. In a stunning indictment of sweeping policy changes during the Bush years, author Naomi Wolf (The Beauty Myth) makes a chilling case that American democracy is under threat. Investigating parallels between our current situation and the rise of dictators and fascism in once-free societies, Wolf uncovers a number of deeply unsettling similarities—from the use of paramilitary groups and secret prisons to the targeted suspension of the rule of law. With this galvanizing call to arms based on her recent book, she urges regular citizens to take back our legacy of freedom and justice. Previous MediaNext Media

Reel American History - Resources - Historical Films List There are many, many films that can be said to depict eras or aspects of American history, but for the purposes of the Reel American History project, and following the lead of Robert Brent Toplin and Kenneth M. Cameron, we focus on feature films based on "real people and actual events." In doing so, for instance, we necessarily and regrettably subordinate some classic films like, say, The Grapes of Wrath, which captures the spirit of the Great Depression, because we are primarily interested in studying what film-makers do with a very specific historical record. In this respect the advice to students about selecting individual film projects might be helpful in identifying the kinds of films we feel are most appropriate for our archive. Links are provided for film projects that are already part of the archive. For more information on specific films, we suggest consulting the Internet Movie Database.

Stephen commented in his OLDaily: And the good point he make is that the effectiveness (if you want to call it that) of a learning event isn’t measurable at the time of the event – you have to wait for the cycles to complete. Can the effectiveness of professional development be measured? How and When? Educational Financial Videos - Investopedia Videos Ad will close in 15 seconds. Sign in Register Videos What's a T Bond?

Understanding Interpersonal Skills Run From The Cure- Hemp Oil Cancer Treatment Presenting Christian Laurette's RUN 2 THE CURE - The Cure for Cancer Documentary PREVIEW TRAILER #1 of the long-awaited sequel to the independent documentary RUN FROM THE CURE: The Rick Simpson Story (February 2008) which led to an international people's recognition of how cannabis oil kills cancers and other so-called "incurable" diseases, while exposing the cancer/pharmaceutical industry's dark reputation for holding back natural medicines that work, in favor of continuing the status quo for maximum profit at the cost of human lives.
