Yet understanding how stress works can help us figure out a ways to combat it and how to live a life free of the tyranny of this contemporary plague

Inside Mecca by Tim Kelly( Visual )

What do a successful executive from suburban Malaysia, a religious radio commentator from rural South Africa and an Irish-born college professor from the United States have in common? They're all about to embark on the spiritual journey of a lifetime--the sacred Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca known as the hajj. One out of every five people on Earth--some 1.3 billion--practice Islam. Over 80 percent of these Muslims live outside the Middle East, but they share a single spiritual center, and each year two million Muslims visit the holy city during the hajj. During the five-day hajj, believers seek to become closer to God, ask pardon for their sins, and renew their spiritual commitment. The events of the hajj have long remained veiled from non-Muslims, who are forbidden even to enter the holy city of Mecca. But a team of Muslim filmmakers gained access to Islam's holiest place during the peak of the pilgrimage to document the event for National Geographic Television. This film reveals the many faces of modern Islam

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Astoria, Queens, New York is the melting pot of melting pots, with a range of skin tones, heights, weights, hair types, and eye shapes, to say nothing of their beliefs, cultures, languages, and trades. But just how different are we? At a street fair in the heart of Astoria, on a sweltering July day, geneticist Spencer Wells and his team take DNA samples from this amazingly diverse group. These samples will show how a selection of New Yorkers: a waitress, a teacher, a councilman, a fashion model, and a mother, among many others, with ethnic origins as diverse as Thai, Puerto Rican and African - are all connected; that they, like everyone else on the planet, can trace their ancestry back to the same small group of Homo sapiens who began eking out a living in Africa less than 200,000 years ago
