      I did not like this DVD that much

      Comments about Human Footprint DVD-Old:

      I did not like this DVD that much. The content was not like what I was expected! Well, the problem with NATGeo DVD's is that when they sell their DVD's they do not really tell you what is inside it! and does not tell you or give you a preview of the DVD. If I knew the content from the beginning (when I wanted to buy it online) I would not buy it since this is not the one that I was expecting and looking for. Thanks

          My students couldn't get over how much was wasted making the video. Many of the examples of how much we use could have been computer generated. Alot of fuel, man hours, etc wasted!

          Comments about Human Footprint DVD-Old:

          This is a good resource if you want to look at how much a person uses in their lifetime. How it was presented was interesting, going from birth to death. I like to use this in my classroom to talk about our impact on the environment.

          I have two complaints. One, the visuals are a bit overly drawn out. They could be shorted a bit and still have an impact. Maybe by zooming our or panning faster.

          My other complaint is that the packaging has the "CC" label indicating that it is closed captioning. An interpreter in my classroom and I spent five minutes trying to figure out where we could turn on the subtitles, but there was no option to do so. If you are going to advertise closed captioning, then actually put it in. This isn't the first National Geographic video I've seen that has been produced in the last ten years that doesn't included subtitles. Quite disappointing for such valuable educational tools.

            What is your human footprint? Well, it's 13,056 pints of milk, 28,433 showers, 12,888 oranges, 14,518 candy bars, and $52,972 worth of clothes, all in one lifetime. Makes you want to step more lightly on the planet! This book doesn't preach or judge, but simply shows kids—in an exciting, visual way—how humans interact with the environment and how we can lessen our impact. Astonishing photography captures the full picture of consumption, documenting all the diapers you wore as a baby, the bread you'll eat in a lifetime, and the cans you'll recycle, based on national averages. Human Footprint is colorful and fun—yet also manages to be a powerful tool for kids to visualize the dimensions of consumption.

            In an extraordinary discovery that made front page headlines around the world, scientists uncovered evidence of a race of "hobbit-sized" prehistoric species on a remote Indonesian island. A full-grown adult would have been as tall as an average four-year old child today. Researchers believe this ancient race lived at the same time as modern humans, sharing the earth for at least 80,000 years. National Geographic delivers the world's first in-depth documentary of this groundbreaking find.

            Humans pride themselves on being the most intelligent species on earth, but many of our base behaviors are the same as a pack of dogs, a flock of geese—even seahorses. No matter how civilized we think we are, animal behaviors influence everything we do.

Marshalling DNA, ballistics and the very latest forensic analysis, an international team works to dispel the greatest myth of the 20th century and tell a real story more remarkable than any fiction.

            Bones:
            Imagine breaking a rib just by coughing or having an internal organ turning to bone. These are just two of the many life-threatening challenges faced by Jake Grys and Holly Pullano, two people with extraordinary genetic bone disorders. Jake is a spirited 9-year-old boy who has broken practically every bone in his body, and Holly is a 28-year-old whose muscles and tendons can turn to bone after the slightest impact. Using advanced animation, National Geographic travels inside Jake's diminutive frame to discover what make his bones so brittle and explores Holly's inner workings to find out how organs can turn into bone, progressively encasing her in a second skeleton.
