David Hockney by Marco Livingstone( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between art and life has been of overriding importance in the work of David Hockney, who has perhaps enjoyed greater popularity than any other British artist this century. Here Marco Livingstone traces those connections from the beginning of the artist's career in the early 1960s through to the more recent works that have contributed to Hockney's international reputation. These include his photocollages and highly acclaimed stage designs for the opera, not to mention his embrace of technology - namely the fax drawings and color laser prints - which show the continuing preoccupation with invention and artifice that has made the artist's work at once popular and enduring

Glengarry Glen Ross by James Foley( Visual )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mamet's savage look at a group of slimy small-time real estate salesmen. ... Harsh story examines the underhanded, eventually criminal activities of the salesmen as they compete to outdo each other in hustling dubious properties to phone clients. Key to their sales efforts are quality 'leads, ' which have a lot to do with whether they satisfy their hard-driving bosses and are able to keep their jobs. Most in danger of getting the ax is, unsurprisingly, the oldest employee, Shelley Levene, who begs, pleads and deals for better leads than the worthless ones he's been dealt. By rote, he makes his time-worn sales pitches, both over the phone and in person but in the high-powered sales world personified by Blake, the terrorist from the head office, there's clearly no place for a dinosaur like Shelley. Also in jeopardy and strategizing in different ways are George and Dave. Kevin Spacey plays the by-the-books office manager while Jonathan Pryce plays a cowering customer. But in contrast to all these drones is Ricky Roma, a hotshot salesman who seems to know every trick in the book and how to play them. Unlike the others, Roma is nattily dressed, tan, and comes off like a guy who's going to use the system, not be used by it"--Variety review by Todd McCarthy, August 31, 1992

Management Plan for Experimental Reintroduction of Sockeye into Skaha Lake; Proposed Implementation, Monitoring, and Evaluation, 2004 Technical Report( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Okanagan River sockeye salmon, which spawn near the town of Oliver, B.C., have their farther upstream migration limited by several water control and diversion dams. Stock numbers have been declining for many years and the Okanagan Native Alliance Fisheries Department (ONAFD) has been the principal advocate of a program to restore their numbers and range by reintroducing them into upstream waters where they may once have occurred in substantial numbers Some investigators have warned that without effective intervention Okanagan sockeye are at considerable risk of extinction. Among a host of threats, the quality of water in the single nursery areas in Osoyoos Lake. is deteriorating and a sanctuary such as that afforded in larger lakes higher in the system could be essential. Because the proposed reintroduction upstream has implications for other fish species, (particularly kokanee, the so-called ''landlocked sockeye'' which reside in many Okanagan lakes), the proponents undertook a three-year investigation, with funding from the Bonneville Power Administration and the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, to identify possible problem areas, and they committed to an interim experimental reintroduction to Skaha Lake where any problems could be worked out before a more ambitious reintroduction, (e.g. to Okanagan Lake) could be formally considered. The three-year investigation was completed in the spring of 2003. It included an assessment of risks from disease or the possible introduction of unwanted exotic species. It also considered the present quality and quantity of sockeye habitat, and opportunities for expanding or improving it. Finally ecological complexity encouraged the development of a life history model to examine interactions of sockeye with other fishes and their food organisms. While some problem areas were exposed in the course of these studies, they appeared to be manageable and the concept of an experimental reintroduction was largely supported but with the proviso that there should be a thorough evaluation and reporting of progress and results. A 2004 start on implementation and monitoring has now been proposed
