Words are powerful weapons and can do great damage to others if used in an inappropriate manner. A single bad word can change a life dramatically. This program reviews how words and gestures can change emotions in a positive or negative way. Also explains why the most important thing for people to remember is that they can’t take back something once it has been said. Yelling is an indication of a lack of control. It’s no way to instruct or coach. If individuals want to change someone’s behavior, they should explain what it is they want, and why they want it. Foul language negatively influences professionals and may have a disappointing impact on their level of success in life. Kind words cost little, but accomplish much. The DVD details why individuals should praise loudly, criticize privately, and think things through before they respond.

#12231/0685  PRICE OF PLEASURE (THE) : Pornography, Sexuality and Relationships
Once relegated to the margins of society, pornography has emerged as one of the most visible and profitable sectors of the cultural industries, assuming an unprecedented role in the mainstream of our popular culture at the same time that its content has become more extreme and harsh, more overtly sexist and racist. This eye-opening and disturbing film tackles the complexity behind this seeming paradox. This film is particularly revealing when male pornographers openly discuss their views about women and how men should relate to them, and when male and female porn users candidly discuss the role pornography has played in shaping their sexual imaginations and relationships. Honest and nonjudgmental, the film paints both a nuanced and complex portrait of how pleasure and pain, commerce and power, and liberty and responsibility are intertwined in the most intimate aspects of human relations. At the same time, the film examines the unprecedented role that commercial pornography now occupies in U.S. popular culture. Going beyond the debate of liberal versus conservative so common in the culture, this program provides a holistic understanding of pornography as it debunks common myths about the genre.Grades 10 to A
