In China, peacocks symbolize beauty and dignity.

Pendleton National Park Blankets
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Home & Garden/Home Décor/Pillows & Throws

Pendleton Woolen Mills has created distinctive blankets honoring America’s National Parks since the early 1900s. Each blanket has unique historic designs and colors that date back to frontier trading posts. The original blankets had 3, 4, or 5 black stripes incorporated in the design, which indicated the value. Fur trappers would bring their catch to the trading posts, and traders would hold up fingers to indicate the weight of the blanket in pounds that they were willing to trade for the trapper’s goods.

Pearl Harbor Legacy of Attack DVD
Pearl Harbor Legacy of Attack DVD
(Based on 1 review)
Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/War and Military

National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Robert Ballard tackles one of the enduring mysteries of World War II—the role of a Japanese midget sub in the attack on Pearl Harbor. As he heads out to locate the sub's wreckage, Ballard is intrigued by the possibilities. Was the submarine Pearl Harbor's first casualty? Could it have escaped the U.S. destroyer that fired upon it? And, perhaps most critical, why didn't the sub's presence tip American forces to the approaching attack?

Ballard's quest is only part of the story. Survivors' accounts describe the attack in gripping, horrifying detail, and commentary by esteemed historian Stephen Ambrose sets Pearl Harbor into its historical context. Footage from a remotely operated submersible yields unprecedented glimpses of the U.S.S. Arizona, the downed battleship that still rests in the murky waters of Pearl Harbor.

America Before Columbus DVD
America Before Columbus DVD
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/Ancient Civilizations

History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells us that America wasn't exactly a "New World," but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals, and causeways. But after Columbus set foot in the Americas, an endless wave of explorers, conquistadors and settlers arrived, and with each of their ships came a Noah's Ark of plants, animals—and disease. In the first 100 years of contact, entire civilizations were wiped out and the landscape was changed forever.

Stress: Portrait of a Killer DVD
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: DVDs/Science and Space

Over the last three decades, science has been advancing our understanding of stress—how it impacts our bodies and how our social standing can make us more or less susceptible. From baboon troops on the plains of Africa, to neuroscience labs at Stanford University, scientists are revealing just how lethal stress can be. Research tells us that the impact of stress can be found deep within us, shrinking our brains, adding fat to our bellies, even unraveling our chromosomes. Understanding how stress works can help us figure out ways to combat it and how to live a life free of the tyranny of this contemporary plague. In Stress: Portrait of a Killer, scientific discoveries in the field and in the lab prove that stress is not just a state of mind, but something measurable and dangerous.
