The snack bowl at a "Pharm party" includes a mix of prescription drugs -- from Adderall to Oxycontin to Xanax -- and most of them come directly from the household medicine cabinet. This ABC News program examines a disturbing and rapidly growing trend in teenage drug abuse: getting high on legal drugs, often obtained through parents' prescriptions or from questionable sources over the Internet. Presenting studies showing a rapid spike in pharmaceutical abuse among students as young as eighth-graders, the program visits a Houston substance-abuse treatment center where recovering teenage addicts and their parents share their eye-opening experiences--Distributor

The shock of the new ( visu )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
Some of the post-World War I's best art was produced in opposition to all systems, all authorities, with a rancor and ingenuity scarcely imagined before. The political implications of Dada (Ernst, Schwitters, Hoch, Baader) and of German Expressionism were played out against the postwar collapse of Germany and the rise of a sharply internationalist intellectual climate. The nihilistic tradition of Dada dissent continued for years to its last major exponent, Ed Kienholz

(Publisher description) This program studies how children continue to transform between the ages of 4 and 11 as they confront and come to terms with fear, adversity, death, and their nascent sexuality. Much attention is paid to the latency period, the intermediate age when boys and girls suddenly stop playing together, crave alone-time, and often clash with their parents.

The results: Cubism, with its broken planes, multiple perspectives, and Pop Art

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
