    We stand on the brink of technological advancements that could change everything we know about human life. But will this make us superhuman, as many hope, or could our drive for progress actually lead to our own destruction?
     
    Yuval Noah Harari believes it could go either way: our ever-growing scientific knowledge certainly has the potential to give us incredible, even "godlike" abilities, but in striving for this, we might come close to losing the very things that make us human. Homo Deus examines both the risks and the potential rewards of this journey and offers compelling visions of humanity's possible futures.   
     
    You will learn: 
     
    ·How technology has helped us overcome many of the obstacles that have traditionally threatened human life
     
    ·How "curing" death might be humanity's next big challenge
     
    ·How our efforts to technologically enhance our lives might render human beings obsolete.

    Extreme Food - What to Eat When...

    In the tradition of the million-copy-bestseller SAS Survival Guide, former SAS paratrooper Bear Grylls—the world’s most famous survival expert—teaches the necessary skills for eating in the wild. 
    “There’s no getting away from it; I’ve eaten some pretty extreme things in my time—live tarantulas, raw goat testicles, elephant dung, you name it. In a situation when your life depends on it, you need to put your prejudices aside to keep your stomach filled and your strength up. 
    Whether it’s mastering the art of foraging and cooking up a tasty feast around the campfire or learning about the more extreme end of wild food (ever tried a scorpion kebab?), there’s a lot to learn when it comes to dinner time in the wild. Extreme Food will teach you all the necessary skills and techniques to get your teeth into meals you might never have thought of as food in the first place—and, crucially, how to recognize plants and animals that might end up doing you more harm than good. 
    In today’s world, we rarely need to venture beyond the local supermarket and we turn our noses up at the thought of snacking on bugs and grubs. But out in the wild, Mother Nature has provided us with a plentiful supply of nutritious—if not always delicious—food for the taking. And when needs must, we just have to know where to look. 
    Some of it might take you out of your comfort zone. Some of it might turn your stomach. But it’s saved my life more than once. And one day, it might save yours . . .”—BEAR GRYLLS

    Acupuncture - Relief in 2 Minutes 
    What is acupuncture? It is a form of holistic healthcare that is used to prevent and treat certain diseases as well as relieve pain and anesthetize patients for surgery. Research shows that this began in China and has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. 
    The earliest account of this is found in the book called Nei Jing which in English means the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine. The contents of this book date somewhere around 200 BC. Back then, they did not use metal needles and instead used those made out of stone, moxibustion and herbs to treat a patient. 
    Acupuncture prevents and treats diseases by inserting very fine needles into the skin specifically at the anatomic points of the body.
