[High Risk-High Rewards] Crypto currencies is not for the faint-hearted.  One day it’s up 30%, next day down 40%.  All fancy, catchy names.  If you need help, better get your 20 year-old to figure it out.  No phone numbers to call, nor people to help.  I had a dear friend in Key West that was heavily invested in crypto, so much that asked when my wife and I were free, he was going to throw a monster party.  He was paying his nephews $10,000 to manage his accounts.  Crypto dropped, my friend was not speaking to people for months. It’s outer space!

Stroke ls a type of cardiovascular disease involving the arteries leading to the bran and those within the brain .Those arteries make up the blood suppl to the brain and are responsible for carrying Oxygen and nutrients to the brain cells. A stroke occurs when blood flow in one ol these vessels is blocked by a blood clot or by the vessel bursting. When either I occurs the part ol the brain supplied by the affected vessel no longer receives the oxygen and nutrients it needs, so the brain cells begin to die. Stroke caused by a blood clot obstructing blood flow within an artery is referred to as ah ischemic stroke. About 83% of all strokes are ischemic. The underlying cause tor the obstruction leading to ischemic stroke is the development of fatty plaques within the arterial wall (atherosclerosis). Stroke caused by blood vessel rupture or burst is referred to as a hemorrhagic stroke.

[Telephone Naysayers] Centennial Exposition of 1876 tele-phone. Everyone who attended the exposition saw this oddity, although few considered it of any value. Johnson was among the majority when he noted in his journal, “We already have the telegraph, providing communications for all who desire it. The added virtues of voice communication at a distance are unclear. Perhaps in the future, some people will wish to hear the voice of another far away, but there cannot be many. For myself, I think Mr. Bell’s tele-phone is a doomed curiosity with no real purpose.”

A great Aztec legend was that men would come out of the rising sun in great vessels and bring them to Heaven.  That legend probably came from the Spanish sailors whose ship, the Valdivia, wrecked on the coast — whom they had probably sacrificed and eaten. That is the reason they didn’t eat Cortes and his conquistadors. The Aztecs thought the Spaniards were the God’s prophesied in Aztec legend.
The rate of suicide among farmers is three and a half times higher than among the general population.
