She has a long-suffering but loving clerical father, and a scatterbrained mother anxious to marry them off as soon as possible--to wealthy young gentlemen.

Her older sister Jane falls in love with Darcy's best friend Mr. Bingley, while youngest sister Lydia flirts with anyone in a military uniform. Lizzie finds herself fighting off the attentions of the unctuous Mr. Collins and quite taken by the charming Mr. Wickham - who also happens to be an enemy of Mr. Darcy. However, as the characters succumb in many ways to pride and prejudice, Lizzie learns that not all is quite as it seems ... and that Mr. Darcy might not be so disagreeable after all
Gasland Can you light your water on fire? by Josh Fox( visu )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,826 libraries worldwide
In 2009, Delaware River Basin native Josh Fox was presented with an interesting proposal: lease his family lands to a natural gas company for a new method of drilling called hydraulic fracturing, and get a check for $100,000. He wouldn't have to do anything but sit back and collect the money. Curious about the process, Fox embarks on an exploration of other areas where natural gas drilling was already in progress, to observe firsthand any potential downsides. In Dimock, Pennsylvania, a town surrounded by fracking activity, he hears stories of wells exploding, black water, flammable drinking water, headaches, pains, long-term sickness. Fox goes on to tour 25 states, cataloging an endless string of frustrated and sick Americans whose land has become toxic and explaining the legislation pushed through by former vice president Dick Cheney, exempting energy companies from key environmental acts--exemptions that make fracking invisible to any regulation or monitoring. Fox becomes an advocate for the cause of the people whose complaints are ignored by the natural gas corporations and the American government. The film documents the pitfalls and perils--borne of avarice of the most bloodless, ruthless kind--of the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in American history, with the potential to poison millions

For some billion people worldwide, it is the Holy Scripture, the word of God and his prophet. For others, it is no more than a historical artifact that has left an indelible imprint on the world. It is the Koran.

Leading religious scholars, Islamic scholars, and holy men detail the history of the Koran from the Golden Age of Islam to the modern rise of jihadism. This film provides a guide to understanding the fundamental work that has shaped the Muslim faith for over 1,400 years, and continues to influence modern history
