With an arsenal of informative magazines, elegant photographs, and illuminating documentaries, National Geographic has inspired planetary responsibility and natural wonderment for more than 120 years. Their latest filmed adventure, The Last Lions, ushers viewers into the wetlands of Botswana's Okavango Delta, where a lioness named Ma di Tau and her cubs fight for their survival. From fleeing raging fires and cub-killing rival prides to wading through crocodile-infested rivers and the supermarket at rush hour, this family suffers perils that leave audiences touched and awestruck. Crafted by award-winning filmmakers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, and narrated by Jeremy Irons, The Last Lions aims to raise awareness of dwindling big-cat populations while sharing a compelling story of hope. The film is rated PG for depictions of the food-chain cycle without the accompaniment of an Elton John song.

Like many boxing gyms, 9Round echoes with the steady ring of bells and buzzers. They go off every three minutes, in fact, but rather than signalling the start of a round, they signal the start of a workout session. The trainers devise nine exercise stations every morning, and then run the circuits every three minutes from open until close. The day's workout is never the same, but each one encompasses fundamental similarities. For instance, every session starts with strength training, challenging clients' muscles with heavy weights. Next, patrons move to tackling heavy bags, speed bags, and double-end bags for the bulk of the workout, honing boxing and kickboxing abilities such as power, hand-eye coordination, and speed, all of which help a person to effectively disarm and dismember a pi?ata. The final station always works the core, enhancing regular crunches and twists with the addition of medicine balls and weights.

To stroll the grounds of The Heritage Farmstead Museum is to walk into a living vestige of the past. A turn about the 4.5-acre property reveals a blacksmith shop and bookshelves filled with Victorian-era tomes. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, these grounds are dedicated to preserving turn-of-the-century Texas Blackland Prairie culture.

The museum's rich history begins with businessman Hunter Farrell, who built the main house for his wife, Mary Alice, more than a century ago. Since being passed down the familial line, the property has been preserved and restored for the thousands of visitors who examine its artifacts, admire its architecture, and traverse its grounds each year. School programs, summer camps, and daily tours provide an immersive look into the lives of the people who populated the Plano area from 1890?1920, and a slew of rotating and permanent exhibits re-create such sites as a North Texas schoolhouse from 1895.

A 168,000-gallon pool shaped like the Lone Star State, The Texas Pool has been an oasis in the scorching Plano summer heat since 1961. For decades, aspiring members camped overnight outside its doors in the hopes of securing access to its cool, salt waters and abundance of recreational facilities. Today, families still flock to the pool, seeking refuge from the sun during open swim sessions, swimming camps, and swim lessons throughout the week. Against a backdrop of a Texas flag mural, swimmers of all ages shoot down water slides, leap off a diving board, and compete in recreational games of water volleyball, all the while enjoying a relatively low risk of a giant-squid attack. Instructors lead students of all abilities in swimming lessons, elucidating the art of the front crawl and butterfly stroke.

Meanwhile, smoke rises from barbecue grills that speckle the rows of picnic tables, and sunbathers stretch out on lawn chairs. On movie nights, audiences gather at the pool to soak up youngster-friendly films.
