Doomsday Castle 2-DVD Set
Doomsday Castle 2-DVD Set
(Based on 1 review)
Category: DVDs/Adventure and Exploration

Castles: they could be considered were the ultimate homes for medieval preppers, kings and nobleman who were under constant threat from neighboring enemies. But for American prepper Brent, these relics of the Dark Ages are still the most desirable quarters for the doomsday scenario he fears, an electromagnetic burst where the power grid fails resulting in a blackout. Brent is summoning his kids—an amateur model, an experienced prepper, and a 41-year old who has barely handled firearms—to his partially built towering castle isolated deep in the Carolina mountains to help him finish construction and to test their survival skills. The apocalypse he fears might pale in comparison to this clash of characters as they try to live and work together to prepare for Doomsday. If doomsday comes will they survive to rule the mountains, or will it self-destruct before the castle is ever completed?

“Where science ends, art begins,” wrote the 19th-century photographer Charles Nègre. STEM learning—science, technology, engineering, and math—has become a crucial part of school curriculums, but educators have begun transforming STEM to STEAM in recognition of the power of art and free-form creativity. There is no greater invitation to play, create, and imagine than a box of brand-new art supplies. This dazzling art set comes with everything you need to set the page ablaze with color:

  • 18 colored pencils
  • 18 vibrant crayons
  • 16 fine-point markers
  • 14 richly hued pastels
  • 8 high-saturation watercolor paints
  • 2 paintbrushes
  • 2 pencils with an eraser and sharpener

Draw a comic, design your dream house or the car of the future, launch a fashion revolution, create a family crest, paint a friend’s portrait, doodle to your heart’s content… With a blank piece of paper and the Explore and Create Art Set, the sky’s the limit. The set comes in a box that has a rope handle and closure, making it easy to carry. The deceptively plain brown paper exterior encourages personalization: design, decorate, and embellish your kit to make it all your own.

Unsettling transformations are sweeping across the planet, and clue by clue, investigators are discovering ways that seemingly disparate events are connected. Crumbling houses in New Orleans are linked to voracious creatures from southern China. An asthma epidemic in the Caribbean is connected to dust storms in Africa. Erratic behavior of olive baboons in Ghana is linked to human overfishing of the world's oceans.

Strange Days on Planet Earth explores the ways in which human life has affected the planet and how globally connected problems are personally relevant and urgent. It brings into focus the realization that the decisions we make today will affect all life on Earth for years to come. Actor-writer-director Edward Norton hosts six eye-opening episodes, each uncovering explanations behind some of today's most puzzling environmental changes.

In early 1968 the grisly on-the-job deaths of two African-American sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, prompted an extended strike by that city's segregated force of trash collectors. Workers sought union protection, higher wages, improved safety, and the integration of their work force. Their work stoppage became a part of the larger civil rights movement and drew an impressive array of national movement leaders to Memphis, including, on more than one occasion, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
