Mark Greene, that semismart layabout, is back. Venturing to Bunk Bunk Community College to enroll in courses that he hopes might lead to some sort of employment, Mark inexplicably finds himself tossed into the lowest depths of the teaching profession. He´s hired as an adjunct to teach English at midnight. Try as he might to impart literature and spark creativity to those in his charge, Mark Greene cannot help but get his own schooling - good and hard. For Mark Greene stumbles upon a plot in the bowels of the school´s Wellness Center to transform the very nature of man. Now he must use all his resources to save humanity from man´s oldest and most dangerous desire: to be a god. In this Manichean contest, Mark Greene must defeat the Machiavellian president of Bunk Bunk Community College, President FiFi; a deeply cynical and bitter scientist, the dean of nocturnal studies; an alcoholic, chip-on-his-shoulder politician, Rep. Pat A. Nidge; and, finally, the founder of Planet Pennies, Starbucks´ great rival. Mark, however, has one ace up his sleeve: the love of his life. Her name is Diane, a clerk at the school, enrolled at university, majoring in psychology. Okay, more love than ally, but together they aim to save themselves and all of mankind from man´s most ancient and inveterate sin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lee Strayer.

Cutting-edge research on the brain´s interaction with the body shows that health is directly impacted by our social environments, socioeconomic status, culture, behaviors, relationships, psychological states, and habits of mind, among many factors. Mind-body medicine - working in partnership with traditional medical practice - uses a large range of psychological, physical, and behavioral treatments in a model of health care that aims to treat the whole human being. It provides highly effective resources for prevention and treatment of a wide spectrum of medical conditions-and for fostering the ultimate goals of health care: truly optimal and lasting physical health, as well as emotional and psychological well-being. In these 36 revealing lectures, Professor Satterfield offers you a comprehensive overview of the field. You´ll look in depth at the anatomical and biological systems through which what is ´´outside´´ in the environment gets ´´inside´´ to affect our minds and bodies. You´ll also examine recent research on subjects ranging from the impact our emotions and psychology have on health to the crucial roles that social, cultural, and behavioral factors play. And you´ll learn about effective mind-body treatments for many common medical conditions and diseases. Finally, you´ll finish the course with a tool box of ideas and interventions for your personal wellness goals, empowering you to partner more effectively with your medical providers and maximize your own health.
