‘Nature Cat: Winter Dance Party’ Gives Audiences Plenty To Celebrate

Courtesy: PBS/PBS Kids/Public Media Distribution

Winter is here again, and just in time for the season’s return, a new collection of winter-themed Nature Cat episodes is available on DVD in the form of Nature Cat: Winter Dance Party.  The new 4-episode, 50-minute collection is a wonderful way to entertain and educate children on those days when the weather forces them indoors.  That is proven in part through the stories featured in this latest collection.  They will be discussed shortly.  The lessons taught in each of the lessons are important in their own way to the whole of the new DVD, and will be discussed a little later.  The DVD’s average price point is money well-spent, and will be discussed later, as well.  Each item noted here is important in its own way to the whole of Nature Cat; Winter Dance Party.  All things considered, they make the DVD a wonderful winter treat for the whole family

PBS Kids’ new Nature Cat DVD, Winter Dance Party, is a welcome new way for the whole family to pass the season’s coldest days indoors.  That is proven in part through the stories that make up the collection’s body.  All four of the stories featured in this collection are pulled from the series’ first season.  They are not presented precisely in the chronological order, but that is not the most important item to note.  What is most important to note of the stories is that all four follow the central theme of winter, and focus on Nature Cat’s ongoing rivalry with Ronald.  The collection’s title episode finds Nature Cat and Ronald having to work together to celebrate the winter solstice while “Ice Is Nice,” the DVD’s second episode, finds both felines having to find out why their mugs of hot chocolate broke.  “A Jump To Remember” finds Ronald trying to keep Nature Cat from breaking his ski jump record, and of course getting what he deserves in the end while the disc’s finale, “The Groundhog Way” once again finds the two cats competing to see who is the better meteorologist after the groundhog says he is not going to try to predict whether winter will end early.  Those common threads of Nature Cat having to deal constantly with Ronald and of winter – and the fact that each story boasts its own identity separate from its counterparts, goes a long way toward making the episodes entertaining and engaging for audiences of all ages.  The stories themselves are just part of what makes this latest DVD another entertaining offering from the science-based animated series.  The lessons taught in each story are just as important to the collection as the stories, which form the episodes’ foundation.

Just as the stories boast their own identity from one another in each episode, so do the lessons that are tied into each story.  “Winter Dance Party” boasts a lesson that is focused directly on the winter solstice.  It explains the direct role of the angle of Earth’s rotation in the amount of sunlight seen prior to and after the solstice.  This is a lesson that might actually enlighten just as many grown-ups as children.  As is explained here, there are more hours of daylight, post winter solstice because it takes longer for the sun to make its way across the sky after the solstice than before.  In other words, the days are not necessarily longer.  It is just that the angle and speed of Earth’s rotation collectively just widens the arc through which the sun travels, not necessarily lengthens the day per se.  The manner in which this lesson is explained makes it accessible to audiences of all ages.

“Ice Is Nice” features an equally simple lesson about the phases of matter after Nature Cat and Ronald’s mugs of hot chocolate break.  The lesson here reveals that when water freezes, it expands, which is why the pair’s mugs broke.  This is just as important for grown-ups to learn because it explains exactly why pipes burst in extremely cold temperatures.  Frozen water expands in pipes, causing the noted breaks.  Yet again, this is proof of the accessibility of the lesson for audiences of all ages.  The only complaint that one might have with this episode is that Nature Cat and Ronald each used water for their hot chocolate.  There was no mention that milk also expands, as it is roughly 80 to 90 percent water.  So, it would have been even more interesting to have seen one of the pair use water and another use milk, to the same end.  That would have covered all of the bases.  Regardless, even using just water for the hot chocolate mix still gets the point across clearly enough.

“A Jump To Remember” teaches a relatively basic lesson about how water turns to snow on a cold day.  The lesson is taught as the group runs water through a hose on a very cold day and uses a specific type of nozzle to help create the snow.  It is basically what many ski lodges do in warmer winters in order to generate snow and keep guests.

“The Groundhog Way” is perhaps the most important of this disc’s episodes because its lesson makes clear that a rodent is not a weather forecaster.  It takes time to point out that the groundhog’s shadow does not determine one way or another the length of winter.  It drives this home by having Nature Cat and Ronald using their own “old wives tales” to try to prove they can determine when winter will end, with neither one winning in the end.  Some might dislike this lesson, as it debunks the pseudo-science of Groundhog Day and proves the absurdity of the day at the same time.  No one, not even the most experienced meteorologist or even the Old Farmer’s Almanac can actually determine when winter will end and spring begin.  This is a lesson that adults need to take in just as much as children, and is yet more proof of the importance of the episodes’ lessons to the whole of the DVD.  When the lessons noted here and their companion stories are considered together, the whole of those elements goes a long way toward entertaining and engaging audiences.  Even with their importance, they are just some of the DVD’s most important elements.  They collectively make the DVD’s average price point money that is well-spent.

The average price point for Nature Cat: Winter Dance Party is $6.44.  That price was determined using prices listed at PBS’ online store, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Books-A-Million and Barnes & Noble Book Sellers.  Apparently, the DVD is not listed at Target, but the series’ debut DVD and its upcoming title, Nature Cat and Mr. Hide are listed there.  With an average price point of $6.44 and a mode price (mode is the most common number in a set of numbers) of $5.99, this DVD hardly breaks the bank.  It is more than affordable, as a matter of fact.  What’s more, the entertainment and education offered collectively through the course of the DVD’s 50-minute run time will leave audiences feeling that the money paid was very well-spent.  Keeping all of this in mind, audiences will agree that Nature Cat: Winter Dance Party gives audiences of all ages plenty to celebrate.

PBS Kids’ new Nature Cat DVD, Winter Dance Party is another entertaining and engaging offering from the animated science-based series that audiences will leave grown-ups glad they spent the money on the more than affordable DVD.  That is proven in part through the story featured in each episode.  The stories stand on their own merits while following two central themes from one to the next.  The science lessons featured in the episodes are accessible for audiences of all ages, and are themselves all winter-themed.  The average price point, as noted, is money well-spent, considering the breath and depth of the set’s content.  Keeping this in mind, this latest Nature Cat DVD gives audiences of all ages plenty to celebrate.  More information on the DVD is available online along with lots of Nature Cat games, activities and printables at:

‘Native America’ Is A Powerful History, Tribute To Native Americans

Courtesy: PBS/PBS Distribution

Native Americans are some of the world’s most important peoples.  If not for them, America today might not have the governmental system that it has today.  If not for Native Americans, the world might not have many of the foods, clothes, medical and even scientific advancements that it has.  That is a massive statement, considering how intelligent Native Americans and their ancestors are and were.  Now thanks to PBS, Native Americans and their ancient ancestors have finally received the recognition that they have deserved for decades (if not eons) in the new docu-series Native America.  The nearly four-hour series (specifically three hours and 40 minutes) is a wonderful lesson on the importance of Native Americans, their ancestors and the importance of their contributions to the world.  It shows unquestionably that Native Americans and their ancestors deserve so much more respect and recognition than they get even today.  That is proven through the stories told in each of the program’s four separate segments.  Speaking of that segmentation, it is its own important part of this two-disc set’s presentation, and will be discussed a little later.  The double-disc set’s average price point makes it a presentation that viewers of every background can afford.  In turn, people of every background should spend the money and purchase this set.  They will be glad they did.  They will agree in watching this set that it is easily one of this year’s best and most important new documentaries.

PBS’ new new docu-series Native America is one of this year’s best and most important new documentaries.  It is a “series” that people of every background must see.  That is because it is one of the most in-depth and respectful presentations of Native American history and culture that has been presented to audiences in recent memory.  That statement is supported primarily through the program’s content.  That content displays, in full depth, all of the contributions and advancements made by Native Americans and their ancestors. One of the four episodes included in the series focuses intensely on the role of Native Americans who lived in what is now New York in the formation of today’s American government.  It openly states that Benjamin Franklin cited those tribes’ governmental establishment as the influence for the system created by the founding fathers.  The docu-series’ opening episode goes into just as much depth to present the incredible level of intelligence of ancient Native Americans, such as the Pueblo and Zuni tribes, living in the American Southwest in their measurements of the solar and lunar cycles.  Audiences will be awed seeing firsthand, the precise calendars etched onto rock walls that tracked those cycles, and the role that said tracking played in the tribes’ planting and harvesting. Just as interesting to learn is how one ancient ruler used corn as the source of his people’s very culture.  “New World Rising,” the “series”’ finale, points out the atrocities committed against the Native Americans and their ancestors by Europeans who came to the Americas, and the result of those atrocities.  Audiences will be shocked to learn of the role of the Catholic Church in those atrocities among other items.  Between all of the items noted here and so much more that is discussed throughout the course of the “series”’ nearly four-hour run time, the whole of the program is certain to keep viewers completely engaged throughout.  What’s more, it is just as certain to be quite enlightening for plenty of audiences, just as it was for this critic.  Keeping this in mind, the content shared throughout the program provides in itself more than enough reason for audiences to watch the program, not just during Native American Heritage Month, but during any time of the year.

The content presented throughout Native America’s four separate segments creates a solid foundation for the double-disc set, and – as already noted – gives viewers more than enough reason to watch the program.  Speaking of the segments, those behind the program’s construction are to be commended for that segmentation.  Each segment is its own presentation, lasting roughly one hour in time.  The segments each have a beginning, middle and end.  Given, there are a few minor transition issues, such as those in the program’s second segment, “Nature to Nations” and in “Cities of the Sky.”  Audiences will note that in both segments, the stories reach some points that feel like random changes of thoughts, almost like they were constructed in a stream of consciousness style.  Luckily though, those transition issues are not enough to derail the viewing experience and, in turn, viewers’ engagement.  Staying on that note, the fact that each segment is its own presentation, audiences are not made to feel that they have to watch the whole thing in one sitting in order to take it in entirely.  This is hugely important to the program’s new DVD presentation as it will add to viewers’ appreciation for the presentation in whole.  When it is considered along with the depth and breadth of the program’s content, the two elements together make the program that much more appealing for viewers.  Even with that in mind, it still is not the least or last of the DVD’s important elements.  Keeping in mind, the appeal of the DVD set’s content and its overall construction through its segmentation, its average price point proves to be its own important part of the whole.

The average price point for Native America – using prices listed at PBS’ online store, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million – is $21.89.  Even adding in shipping and handling, that price increases, obviously.  Regardless, that increase is still not enough that it should dissuade consumers from purchasing the two-disc set.  Prices obviously vary from one outlet to the next, and regardless, each price is still worth the money paid because of the program’s ability to pull in audiences and keep them engaged.  What’s more audiences will find themselves more enlightened by the program’s end, and perhaps even having more appreciation for Native Americans, their ancestors and the cultures of each tribe and peoples.  Keeping this in mind, the whole of Native America proves to be a two-disc presentation that is, again, the best history of Native Americans to be presented in many years.

PBS’ recently released history of Native Americans, aptly titled Native America, is the best presentation of said history to come along in a very long time.  That is proven in part through the content presented over the course of its four separate segments.  The very segmenting of the program makes the program that much more appealing for audiences, as it does not leave them feeling that they have to be so fully committed to watch it in one sitting.  The average price point of the set adds even more appeal for audiences, especially considering the program’s ability to keep audiences engaged from start to finish of each segment with its in-depth history lessons.  Each item is important in its own way to the whole of Native America.  All things considered, they make the double-disc set a solid, positive new effort from PBS that will appeal to audiences not only during Native American Heritage Month, but throughout the year.  More information on this and other PBS programs is available online now at:

‘NOVA: Decoding The Weather Machine’ Eliminates All Doubt About Climate Change

Courtesy: PBS/PBS Distribution

The issue of climate change is one of America’s most divisive topics today.  Between scientists and civilians, opinions on climate change have created a deep rift between Americans.  The deniers constantly claim that the planet’s climate is not changing and that humans are not to blame.  Those on the other side attest the exact opposite.  Now thanks to a recently released episode of PBS’ hit science-based series NOVA, — Decoding The Weather Machine — those raising the alarm about climate change and mankind’s influence on climate change have even more support for their arguments even as the deniers continue to hold firmly to their deluded beliefs.  That support is provided in large part to the program’s primary presentation, which will be discussed shortly.  The program’s overall construction – its transitions and related pacing – play into the program’s presentation, too.  It will be discussed a little later.  The single-disc presentation’s average price point rounds out its most important elements.  Each element is important in its own right to the whole of this release.  All things considered, this two-hour presentation is a powerful and convincing warning about what is currently happening to Earth and a reminder that it is not too late for the planet or for Earth.

NOVA: Decoding The Weather Machine is one of the most powerful discussions on the issue of climate change that has been released in recent years.  The in-depth program leaves no doubt – despite deniers’ own beliefs – that climate change is real, and that mankind is in fact playing a part in what is happening to the weather, and in turn to Earth.  As has been noted, that is due in no small part to the discussions that make up the program’s primary presentation.  Over the course of the two-hour presentation, academics and scientists alike discuss the roles that Mother Nature and mankind alike play in climate change.  They do admit that climate change has been happening for eons, but in the same breath, prove through extensive discussion that it has been increasing dramatically ever since the start of the industrial revolution.  From there, the discussions turn to a focus on the obvious rise in the number of wildfires in the west, Category 4 and 5 hurricanes in the Atlantic and the equally obvious decline of the polar ice caps, and even decrease in sea ice in the Antarctic to prove the effects of that continued rise in the earth’s temperature and carbon dioxide levels.  Audiences are also taken to areas, such as Norfolk, VA and the Falkland Islands to illustrate the impact of the world’s rising ocean levels.  Between those illustrations of the impact of climate change and the evidence exhibited throughout the first half of the program, it becomes painfully clear that climate change deniers have no case in their arguments.  It shows climate change is in fact very real and very much an issue that must be addressed now.

Speaking of being addressed now, the second half of the program addresses just that.  It reminds audiences that if mankind starts making changes now, it can avoid a very bleak future.  It points out that the best way to avoid that potentially bleak future is to adapt and mitigate now, adding that thankfully there are those who are already mitigating.  Case in point is the rise in the use of solar and wind power discussed in this portion of the program.  Some scientists are even finding ways to recycle carbon dioxide and put it to use for mankind while even profiting from that use.  The end result is not only profit, but also a decline in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which also means less heating of the atmosphere, and in turn less damage to Earth.  As if that is not enough, in America’s heartland, one farmer shows that non-tilling of fields is another way in which mitigation is helping decrease carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.  In turn, it is also making soil on farmland richer, despite how the land might look.  Simply put, the program shows just as clearly how mitigation and adaptation can help humans make a positive change in Earth’s future as it does how mankind has played a direct part in speeding up Earth’s natural climate change.  It reminds audiences that the future does not have to be bleak.  Keeping this in mind, the primary program of NOVA: Decoding The Weather Machine creates a solid foundation for the program’s presentation.  The program’s overall presentation strengthens that foundation even more.

The construction of NOVA: Decoding The Weather Machine strengthens the program’s foundation because of its ability to keep viewers engaged throughout.  This is even despite any clear segment breaks.  From one segment to the next, the transitions are just clear enough that audiences are not left wondering where the topic changes from one item to the next.  The program starts off by focusing on the earth’s atmosphere (air) before moving to the planet’s oceans (water) and then to the land (earth & fire), connecting each portion smoothly.  As noted previously, the program also focuses on the changes that can be made to avoid a bleak future.  Even the transition to the discussions on what mankind can do in order to create a better future for the planet is smooth in its own right.  Through it all, those smooth transitions keep the program’s pacing stable throughout, ensuring even more, viewers’ engagement.  Given, segment breaks would have been a nice addition to the program.  Either way, the manner in which the program was constructed – both in regards to its transitions and pacing – builds on the foundation formed by the program’s main presentation, and strengthens it even more.  The end result is a program that, despite its two-hour run time, is still a powerful work that is certain to keep viewers engaged, and in turn, remind audiences that mankind is in fact impacting climate change.  Keeping all of this in mind, the DVD’s average price point proves to make the program’s purchase money well spent.

The average price point of NOVA: Decoding The Weather Machine – using prices from PBS’ store, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million – is approximately $18.84.  That is a relatively affordable price considering the amount of evidence presented here of climate change’s reality, and the reality of mankind’s role in the increasingly dramatic impacts of climate change.  When considering the relatively smooth transitions from one discussion to the next along with the material featured in the main presentation, it becomes even more affordable.  To that end, this must-see episode of NOVA proves to be solid proof that despite what some people want to believe, climate change is very real, and mankind’s impact on that natural process is just as real.

The latest episode of PBS’ hit science-based series NOVA is one of the series’ most important episodes to be released in recent memory.  That is because it proves without a doubt that climate change is real, and that humans’ role in climate change is just as real as climate change itself.  The program’s overall construction ensures with ease that that viewers remain engaged so that that message is received, and clearly at that.  The DVD’s relatively affordable average price point ensures even more that viewers’ will receive that important message about climate change and its impact on the planet.  Each item is clearly important in its own right to the whole of this DVD, as has been pointed out above.  All things considered, they make NOVA: Decoding The Weather Machine a presentation that everybody should see at least once.  It is available now.  More information on this and other episodes of NOVA is available online now at:
