In our rapidly changing, globalized world, we all need to understand how food has made us who we are today and how it shapes our future. Starting with the May issue of National Geographic magazine and continuing through 2014, National Geographic explores our complex relationship with what we eat and where our food comes from.
The pope made an unexpected stop during his trip to the Holy Land, and his powerful gesture is making headlines across the globe.
"It is a picture that's likely to become one of the most emblematic of Pope Francis' first trip to the Holy Land. Head bowed in prayer, the leader of the Catholic church rested his forehead against the graffiti-covered concrete structure that separates Bethlehem from Jerusalem, as a young Palestinian girl looked on by his side. His palm was also pressed against a spot where someone sprayed in red paint 'Free Palestine,' while other graffiti in broken English reading, 'Bethlehem look like Warsaw Ghetto' was painted above his head.
Making headlines across the globe, this powerful gesture is a silent statement against the controversial, but tangible symbol of division and conflict that many international leaders have failed to make.
The barrier that weaves through the West Bank was built by Israel a decade ago as a 'security fence' to protect its citizens from attack. Palestinians, however, denounce it as a land grab."
"Unfortunately, most world political maps aren't telling you the whole story.

Read on to learn about five ways your map is lying to you about borders, territories, and even the roster of the world's countries."
"More than a billion people around the world subsist on a dollar a day, or less. The reasons differ but the day-to-day hardship of their lives are very similar. A book by Thomas A Nazario, founder of the International Organisation, documents the circumstances of those living in extreme poverty across the globe, accompanied by photographs from Pulitzer prizewinner Renée C Byer. Living On A Dollar a Day is published by Quantuck Lane."
