THE DAY RAP WAS BANNED IN THE USA: A writer who has clairvoyant dreams uses My-faction: Myth, Facts & Fiction to tell the story of two men convicted of murder by all-white jurors. One is a rapper, who has a No. 1 song: doing his arrest, the other a Veteran who is sent to the electric chair. After submitting my story: in a PDF. format, with the assistance of my friend pastor Key, a day before the deadline, the next day or should I say, the day of the deadline: I received an Email & link, that told me I, hadn't submitted my Log line, in which could be instant disqualification, of I didn't meet the deadline. I thank God I was at home, and prepared to respond swiftly. But I had one problem, I couldn't remember what a Log line was; no wonder I forgot to add it to the list. After Google it, I remember its import ants, it's the DNA of the script, the glue that brings the characters together, it's that thing that you read before watching a movie, and it sometime is the deciding factor or pitch that wins you over. And so I realized that I had lost my Log line or failedTo copy it. I search my computer hard drive, but I found nothing. Then I realized that my laptop hard drive recovered it for me. To my surprise seeing that Logline was a sight for sore eyes. And so I made a copy and pasted it on my Tv One page, and less than a minute I was receiving a Email that said I had successfully completed my submission, alone with a copy of my submission forms. My screen play wasn't accept, but one of my characters Uncle Luke, of Banded in the USA received an award, When the Lord came to visit me that day in 'Nu vision salon: ' You can say I received a new vision when he assigned me to 'work with 'rappers' who were much younger than I am. My back ground of working with rappers, went back to the inception or acceptances of hip in Dallas, from Vanilla Ice at old city lights in the late 80th's to 2 Live Crew, freedom of speech in the 90th's. I was on Banded in the USA, and MTV commercials': Saying: In America theirs freedom of speech, but watch what you say. I did not know that I would become a messenger of Hip hop, with hindsight I would say that may have been my first Q hip hop X file. I thank God I was able to follow thru. The day I was at my cousin trial, deep in my 'heart of hearts, ' I knew I had to remember the events that unfolded doing the trial. From this experience I was able to write, Free Mac our story, this book and Return of Mac & Q (WW3 Art of WAR) Mac prophesy-caught on Camera DVD & Audio book Mac 1999 live in Dallas, Concert of the future. On the day of Feb 5, 2017, when I woke up that morning I heard a voice say, I haven't forgotten my promise to you...Thanks to my cousin Troy, who seem to be a messenger in his owned right, told me about 'TV One, ' contest. After a day went by I Emailed, him with an excuse, that said the deadline is next week, Feb 16, 2017, and I didn't have much time. He called me to tell me that a Tornado had hit New Orleans Feb 7, 2016. He remembered that I wrote about a Tornado hitting New Orleans, and he reminded me about the dream I told him about a couple of days ago. That came true about the Tornadoes and the storm. Even though this story contains Myth Fiction and facts, it is still based on true events. Washington Post said the odds of a Tornado hitting New Orleans was 1000 to 1, and I predicted two.

How has America censored British films? In this original, fascinating book, Anthony Slide answers this question, making full use for the first time of the recently opened US Production Code Administration files. Film by film from the 1930s through to the 1960s, he tells the inside story of the ongoing dialogue between the British film making industry and the American censors. The book shows graphically how the Production Code system operated, revealing how the censors viewed moral issues, violence, bad language and matters of decorum as well as revealing acute national differences, such as American concern over the British preoccupation with toilets. It also dispels myths, depicting chief censor Joseph Breen and his staff as knowledgeable people who sympathized with and admired the British film industry.

This collection of fourteen essays written by young communication scholars at the University of Arkansas presents unique insights into how First Amendment issues have played out in the state. Rather than exploring the particular legal issues and the constitutional principles enunciated by the courts, First Amendment Studies tells the stories of actual people expressing challenged or unpopular points of view and reveals the ways that constitutional controversies arise from the actions of local officials and individual citizens. Drawing on public documents as well as extensive interviews with participants, these essays demonstrate the dynamics of democratic dissent—on college campuses, in public schools, in churches, on the streets, in the forests and on the farms, and in legislative chambers and courtrooms. Each essay was selected for the Richard S. Arnold Prize in First Amendment Studies, an endowed fund established in 1999 to encourage University of Arkansas graduate students in communication and the liberal arts to explore and examine questions about freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Materials Technology clearly identifies materials and technology as the fundamental generators of buildings and examines how they determine the structure, overall form and quality. It examines the issues that determine the choice of materials, and argues that the decision-making of architects, engineers and designers should take account of the environmental impact of sourcing the basic materials, and of the energy implications of their processing and use in manufacturing. Materials Technology is an essential resource for Materials Technology units in building, architecture and surveying degree and postgraduate courses; and students of BTEC HNC/D building and surveying. It will also be a useful reference tool for Advanced GNVQ Construction and the Built Environment courses and Built Environment NVQs at levels 3 and 4.

This volume is a tribute to Professor Otto Hutzinger, the founding editor of The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry, in recognition of his pioneering work and contribution to our understanding of the sources, fate, exposure and effects of persistent organic pollutants. It consists of fourteen chapters written by individuals who have been inspired by his work and have followed in his footsteps by refining our knowledge of this field and opening new research directions. In Professor Hutzinger’s tradition of passing on valuable information to others, the authors present recent advances in areas such as inventories, remediation, and analytical determinations. Levels and trends in abiotic environments, biota, and human exposure via food, as well as the risks to the environment and humans from polychlorinated dibenzo dioxins, furans, and PCBs are also discussed. Other chapters deal with the relevant topics of DDT and its metabolites along with halogenated and phosphorus flame retardants.

Is inheritable genetic modification the new dividing line in gene therapy? The editors of this searching investigation, representing clinical medicine, public health and biomedical ethics, have established a distinguished team of scientists and scholars to address the issues from the perspectives of biological and social science, law and ethics, including an intriguing Foreword from Peter Singer. Their purpose is to consider how society might deal with the ethical concerns raised by inheritable genetic modification, and to re-examine prevailing views about whether these procedures will ever be ethically and socially justifiable. The book also provides background to define the field, and discusses the biological and technological potential for inheritable genetic modification, its limitations, and its connection with gene therapy, cloning, and other reproductive interventions. For scientists, bioethicists, clinicians, counsellors and public commentators, this is an essential contribution to one of the critical debates in current genetics.
