Unacceptable levels( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unacceptable Levels examines chemical exposure in daily life from the perspective of filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. From the chemical revolution of the 1940s through today's prevalence of chemicals in industrial and consumer products, the documentary seeks to impart greater understanding of the proliferation--and compounding effects--of commonly used chemicals. The ultimate mission of the film is to educate, engage questioning around the potential human risk and to propose ideas on what can be done about it. The film is anchored in Brown's own poignant experiences and follows his personal journey purposed in uncovering the impact of chemicals on his family. To create this debut documentary, Brown traveled extensively to interview top minds in the fields of science, industry, government, environmental advocacy and law. Weaving their commentary and perspectives into a compelling narrative, Brown chronicles the history of industrial chemicals in the U.S.--and their lack of regulation--and provides us with an in-depth look at its presence in everyday life...from agriculture to drinking water, cosmetics to toys

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmmaker Penelope Jagessar Chaffer was curious about the chemicals she was exposed to while pregnant; could they affect her unborn child? So she asked biologist Tyrone Hayes to brief her on one he studied closely: atrazine, an herbicide used on corn. (Hayes, an expert on amphibians, is a critic of atrazine, which displays a disturbing effect on frog development.) Onstage together at TEDWomen, Hayes and Chaffer tell their story

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The film investigates the growing threat posed by the rapid and massive loss of biodiversity on the planet. Examines the primary drivers of species loss: habitat destruction, global warming, pollution, and invasive species, all the result of human population and our consumption patterns. Features leading scientists, social scientists, environmentalists and others
Expedition Borneo, Programme 2( Visual )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steve Backshall and his team decide to press on with their ascent of Mount Kuli. They are still without radio contact, so if anything goes wrong they will be in real trouble. At base camp, they have run out of toilet roll and the river has been in flood for four days, making getting around very difficult. Tyrone arrives, and cameraman Gordon Buchanan and Dr Tara Shine go in search of rare and elusive jungle elephants
Expedition Borneo, Programme 3( Visual )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the pressure on to find as many species as possible before they move on, the jungle explorers encounter some of the less pleasant jungle inhabitants. Naturalist Cede Prudente is bitten by a deadly coral snake, inside a hollow tree Gordon has a close encounter with a python, while Steve and Tara visit a palm oil plantation where another python has been killing the villagers' chickens. But there is a major breakthrough as they go in search of wild orangutans, and they can add a bearded pig and a tangalang as last-minute additions to the list of the animals that live in the Imbak canyon
The HistoryMakers video oral history with Tyrone Hayes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biologist Tyrone B. Hayes was born on July 29, 1967 in Columbia, South Carolina. The first in his family to attend college, he graduated from Harvard University in 1989 with his B.A. degree in biology. He then received his Ph.D. degree in integrative biology from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1993. Shortly after joining the faculty of the university, he became one of the youngest full professors upon his promotion in 2003. His research in amphibian endocrinology garnered considerable attention for its demonstration of the harmful effects of chemical toxins found in a common herbicide upon the sexual development of frogs. These results led Hayes to pursue an interest in public health and environmental protection. Hayes was the recipient of several awards, including the National Geographic Emerging Explorer Award and the President’s Citation Award from the American Institute of Biological Science
The role of steroids in growth and development in anuran amphibians by Tyrone Hayes( )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of steroids in growth and development was examined in larvaI and adult anurans. Larval studies focused on the effects of steroids on growth and metamorphosis and adult studies examined histological effects of steroids on gut and skin and the role of steroids in sexually dimorphic growth. The effects of sex steroids--testosterone (T) and estradiol (E$\sb2$)--and corticosterone (B) on larval growth and development were examined at two temperatures (22$\sp\circ$C and 27$\sp\circ$C). Effects varied with temperature: At 22$\sp\circ$C, T and E$\sb2$ had no effect on laryal growth and rear leg development or size at metamorphosis (P $>$ 0.05), but T induced foreleg emergence (FLE). B inhibited growth (P $$ 0.05), and completely blocked FLE. At 27$\sp\circ$C, T and E$\sb2$ inhibited growth (P $<$ 0.05) and development (P $<$ 0.05), but had no effect on time to FLE. B was fatal during early stages of development, but when given in the latter half of the larval period, B inhibited growth (P $<$ 0.05), and induced early FLE on the left side (P $<$ 0.05), but failed to induce the head and jaw restructuring or complete tail resorption typical of metamorphosis

The team sets up a base camp deep in the jungle. Justine attempts to follow a family of gibbons, and Junior spots fresh clouded leopard tracks. With his ultra-violet torch George finds scorpions uncomfortably close at hand, then spots a tarsier with his thermal-imaging camera. Then a tree comes crashing down during a tropical storm, narrowly missing base camp, and the camp loses radio contact with the team on the Mount Kuli climb
