Saints and soldiers ( visu )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and German and held by 433 libraries worldwide
Based on actual WWII events, the film is set in December 1944 near Malmedy, Belgium, when advancing German troops kill over 70 unarmed American prisoners of war, an event known as the Malmedy Massacre. The four men who manage to escape into the Ardennes are a cross section of war-movie archetypes: a tough-talking sergeant; a devout, soft-spoken sharpshooter; a wisecracking medic from Brooklyn; and a blundering Cajun country boy. When a stranded R.A.F. pilot drops in by parachute, the stakes are raised: the Brit is in possession of German military intelligence that could save thousands of American lives. With a single rifle among them, no food, and a strained camaraderie, this tiny band must take on the unforgiving winter and a forest filled with enemy troops to fight their way back to Allied lines. An old-fashioned war picture, unambivalent in its portrait of war as a necessity and the heroism of self-sacrifice

The filter bubble [what the Internet is hiding from you] by Eli Pariser( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
The hidden rise of personalization on the Internet is controlling--and limiting--the information we consume. In 2009, Google began customizing its search results. Instead of giving you the most broadly popular result, Google now tries to predict what you are most likely to click on. According to board president Eli Pariser, this change is symptomatic of the most significant shift to take place on the Web in recent years--the rise of personalization. Though the phenomenon has gone largely undetected until now, personalized filters are sweeping the Web, creating individual universes of information for each of us. Data companies track your personal information to sell to advertisers, from your political leanings to the hiking boots you just browsed on Zappos. In a personalized world, we will increasingly be typed and fed only news that is pleasant, familiar, and confirms our beliefs--and because these filters are invisible, we won't know what is being hidden from us. Our past interests will determine what we are exposed to in the future, leaving less room for the unexpected encounters that spark creativity, innovation, and the democratic exchange of ideas.--From publisher description
