You remind me of me by Dan Chaon ( Recording )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
You Remind Me of Me begins with a series of striking events: In 1974, a little boy is savagely attacked by his mother's pet Doberman; more than twenty years later another little boy disappears without a trace from his grandmother's backyard; in 1966, a pregnant teenager admits herself to a maternity home; in 1991, a young man drifts toward a career as a drug dealer. Following the interlaced threads of these characters' lives, Chaon powerfully explores questions of identity, fate, and circumstance: Why do we become who we become? How do find ourselves living lives we never wanted? And can we ever change the course of what seems inevitable?
Visions from a foxhole a rifleman in Patton's Ghost Corps by William A Foley ( Recording )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Foley recaptures the bloody attack that left sixty percent of his battalion dead or wounded. That was just the beginning of one of the toughest, bloodiest challenges the 94th would ever face: breaking through the Siegfried Line
The Secret of sex ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of a four-part series presenting research and breakthroughs in the field of human genetics. This segment examines aspects of reproduction, as well as what being male or female means at the cellular level. Dr. Roy Levin, a reproductive physiologist, uses an FMRI scanner to glean surprising images from a couple having intercourse. Startling physiological effects are seen over a mere six months in a woman who begins testosterone therapy. Experts include Marc Breedlove, Professor of Neuroscience at Michigan State University; Dr. Peter Goodfellow, authority on the Y chromosome; Professor John Burn, clinical geneticist at Newcastle University; Dr. John Manning, leading specialist on testosterone; and Dr. Melissa Hines, Professor of Psychology at City University who has studied testosterone's influence on how children play
Predictor ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of a four-part series presenting research and breakthroughs in the field of human genetics. This segment looks at the extent to which genes determine human behavior and destiny. A woman discovers that a single letter change in the genome has been responsible for her family's generations-old "curse" of deformed hands. Dr. Hugh Montgomery of University College Hospital, London, screens the DNA of army recruits for the ACE or endurance gene which may affect their longevity as well as their basic training. Dr. Dean Hammer of the National Institutes of Health explains his search for a thrill-seeker gene, D4DR. Attorney Daniel Summer argues for leniency for his death-row client because his DNA predisposed him to a life of crime. Professor Lee Silver of Princeton University and Nobel Laureate Sir Paul Nurse also provide commentary
Batman & Robin audio action adventure by E Goldenthal ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Batman, Robin, and their new crimefighting comrade, Batgirl, face Gotham City's deadliest threat yet when cold-hearted Mr. Freeze and venomous Poison Ivy team up for some lethal mischief
How to build a human ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of a four-part series presenting research and breakthroughs in the field of human genetics. This segment analyzes the aging process, showing ways to build a longer-lasting human. Dr. Ron Livesey, who runs an anti-aging clinic in New York, discusses the benefits and perils of hormones as an elixir of youth. Professor Stephen Shalet, an expert on human growth hormone, explains its link to cancer. Shows an attempt to retard aging by slowing metabolism in a man on a special diet of less than 1500 calories a day. Molecular geronologists Dr. Simon Melov and Dr. Gordon Lithgow, both of the Buck Institute for Age Research in California, discuss the most promising strategy--controlling rogue elements called free radicals, the by-products of metabolizing oxygen, with antioxidants

2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of a four-part series presenting research and breakthroughs in the field of human genetics. In this segment, pioneering methods of human cloning give a paralyzed Texas doctor hope that he will walk again. Meanwhile in England, a couple prepares for the result of cloning the natural way: triplets. Shows the latest advances in stem cell development and genetic science. The efforts of Dr. JoseĢ Cibelli, head of research at Advanced Cell Technology, which led to the first artificially cloned embroyo, are paralleled with genetic replication as it occurs naturally in the womb. Professor Lee Silver, molecular biologist at Princeton University, and Nobel Prize-winning cell biologist Sir Paul Nurse comment on how these innovations have changed human life
