Man 1, Bank 0
Dave Fanning interviews Man 1, Bank 0 creator Patrick Combs on RTE 2FM – March 2012. 13-minute video. A delightful interview. Combs teases the audience with excerpts from the show to come to a performance.
This 4 minute video isn’t Combs’ one man show. It’s a trailer for his one man show. But if I were you I’d still watch it because Combs deposited a $95,000 junk mail check in the bank as a joke, and it cashed! If a video of the show exists somewhere, I’ve been unable to find it.
WWII, Viet Nam, and the American Civil War are analyzed by experts against the backdrop of Sun Tsu’s battles in ancient China in the Wu-Chu War. Aspects of individual battles are annotated by quotations from The Art of War. Although I’m no fan of war, I did find this documentary very interesting. One hour & 30 minute video.
9-minute video interview. Rod Peterson explains that he was basically told to go home to die but didn’t comply with the prognosis. The doctor was amazed that the tumors were shrinking. Clever Rod didn’t clue the doctor in about the baking soda. Continued treatment and the tumors were gone. Can it really be that simple?
For the DIYer, who is handy with an aluminum can, a bit of copper wire, & warm salt water. You won’t be able to run your electric car with this unless you’ve got about a billion cans and own a salt mine. But, anyway.
One hour & 39 minutes. Four Horsemen is an award-winning (numerous awards) independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works. People who should know what’s going on in the world tell us, finally. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are Conquest, War, Famine & Death. Visiting topics such as Empires, Banking, Terrorism, Resources & Progress, this documentary exposes the Four Horsemen of out times: a rapacious financial system, escalating organized violence, abject poverty for billions & exhaustion of the earth’s resources. These four already have an appreciable grip on our world. Can we change our systems to stop the trend? Yes, if we learn that desirable change will come from the true education of the individual. This documentary is one of the best of its kind.
Professor Rosling opens this TEDtalk showing test results of the brightest Swedish college students and Swedish professors in the area of global child mortality. The professors did better than the students, but only on a par with chimpanzees. Rosling is not lacking in the humor department. Nor is he lacking in wisdom. Fascinating animated graphics (with instant replay!) enlighten us about human population growth, economics, and health. 20-minute video.
Here is the site created by Rosling’s work, with a slew of videos that bring statistics to life.
Misconception, the new documentary by the Academy Award-winning filmmaker was included in the Tribeca 2014 Film Festival. The movie draws on the work of Swedish medical doctor/academic/statistician/public speaker Hans Rosling. Rosling challenges the belief that the world is overpopulated. In this 10-minute interview Ms. Yu credits Rosling with changing her world view.
