    Alexander Hamilton's Three Duels

    The History Guy: History Deserves to Be Remembered


    Alexander Hamilton fought more than the one duel everyone remembers. The History Guy remembers three of Hamilton's duels, two pistols, and one place.

    The History Guy uses images that are in the Public Domain. As photographs of actual events are often not available, I will sometimes use photographs of similar events or objects for illustration.

    Kenya's million dollar garbage business | DW Documentary

    Local gangs run the Dandora dump site in Nairobi and terrorize garbage collectors.

    Richie is only 12, but already he is his family’s main breadwinner. He collects garbage at the Dandora dump site in Kenya’s capital Nairobi. It’s a dangerous job, not least because the dump – one of the largest in Africa – is ruled by local gangs.

    Local gangs run the Dandora dump in Nairobi, but they answer to garbage cartels – networks of private companies competing for lucrative state contracts and not afraid of paying bribes to land them. Currently, the governor and other high-ranking city hall officials are embroiled in a garbage-related scandal that Kenya’s Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is investigating. On the dump site itself, there is a climate of fear. Threats and beatings are not infrequent. Richie has learned to live with it; he says he has no alternative. Melanie Cura Daball reports.

    I wonder as well
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    I had not thought about Hamilton/Burr for a long time. In retrospect the practice should have been kept and the 2nd amendment gotten rid of.

    I'm not an American, but I believe that it would be very unwise to get rid of the 2nd Amendment.

    nah, not really, unless one considers the nature of the populace. The right to bear military arms is just stupid. Hunting rifles, shotguns (even for protection) are not covered by the 2nd amendment in my brain. They are covered by the unalianable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their creator, and which governments are created to protect.

    Let's be really real.

    The Second Amendment is an integral part of the Bill of Rights. Folks have been making a grave error in separating it out as something special. The Bill of Rights is crucial to the Democracy that we have and we would do well to recognize the importance of all parts of it.

    Some folks like to say that the Second Amendment protects the first. It doesn't when we have a President who maligns the Fourth Estate and undermines our access to accurate information and knowledge. It's not like we can point any kind of gun at him. Him, the man who brags he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not be held accountable.

    It's the entire Bill of Rights we need, not just a tenth of it.

    Well, if you're ever out canoeing and you hear banjos playing this tune, you better get the hell out of there!

    A short, but provocative item ...


    What's Really Going On? Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt

    "Klinghardt describes here the relationship between the pineal gland,
    W-LAN, 5G and toxins such as glyphosate and aluminum."


    Dr. Klinghardt studied medicine & psychology in Freiburg, Germany, completing his PhD on the involvement of the autonomic nervous system in autoimmune disorders. Early in his career he became interested in the sequelae of chronic toxicity (especially lead, mercury, environmental pollutants & electromagnetic fields) for the course of illness.

    While working in India he encountered Eastern concepts of disease etiology & blended them with his Western training. This laid the foundation for his 5-level system of Integrative Medicine. In the US he spent three years as a full-time emergency physician before becoming Medical Director of the Santa Fe Pain Centre.

    Increasingly aware of the limitations of conventional medicine when dealing with chronic conditions, he trained in Ericksonian hypnotherapy and began to include body-oriented psychotherapeutic & counseling approaches in his work, along with neural therapy, mesotherapy injection techniques & applied psychoneurobiology.

    Dr. Klinghardt has contributed significantly to the understanding of metal toxicity & its connection with chronic infections, illness & pain. He has been instrumental in advancing various fields within biological medicine – non-invasive pain management, injection techniques for pain & orthopedic dysfunction, anti-aging medicine, toxicology, pediatrics (neuro-developmental disorders), energy psychology, biological dentistry, & others.

    He has also developed Autonomic Response Testing, a comprehensive diagnostic system that has helped many practitioners to become accomplished holistic physicians.

    He founded Sophia Health Institute in 2012, and is actively involved in patient care at his clinic.
