  Car Bibles : The Brake Bible
As the brake components cool down, their ability to absorb heat returns, the pads cool off which means they have more chance to heat up again before the resin vapourises, hence the next time you use the brakes, they seem to work just fine.
A side-effect of this design was that traditionally-mounted brake calipers could cause a lot of vibration in the steering because of flex between the wheel (with the brake disc bolted to it), and the fork leg (with the caliper).
Squealing brakes are a sign of one of two things : the friction material is all gone and you're jamming the backing plate against the brake rotor, or the fit of the brake pad against the caliper piston isn't as snug as it could be.

 Automobile Brakes - A Short Course on How They Work
When you step on the brake pedal, you are actually pushing against a plunger in the master cylinder which forces hydraulic oil (brake fluid) through a series of tubes and hoses to the braking unit at each wheel.
With drum brakes, fluid is forced into the wheel cylinder which pushes the brake shoes out so that the friction linings are pressed against the drum which is attached to the wheel, causing the wheel to stop.
When you apply the brakes, brake fluid is forced, under pressure, into the wheel cylinder which, in turn, pushes the brake shoes into contact with the machined surface on the inside of the drum.

 Howstuffworks "How Brakes Work"
When you depress your brake pedal, your car transmits the force from your foot to its brakes through a fluid.
Since the actual brakes require a much greater force than you could apply with your leg, your car must also multiply the force of your foot.
The brakes transmit the force to the tires using friction, and the tires transmit that force to the road using friction also.

 Sheldon Brown's Bicycle Glossary U--V
The "L"-shaped arms cross over above the tire, so the left brake shoe is operated by the right side of the transverse cable.
Check the brake shoe adjustment frequently--due to the location of the pivot studs on these brakes, as the brake shoes wear they hit higher and higher up on the rims.
V-Brakes and other direct-pull cantilevers have more mechanical advantage than other brakes, so they require special hand levers with less-than-average mechanical advantage to keep the overall mechanical advantage in a useful range.
