It’s time to use software-as-medicine to help an injured brain

The history of war is deeply associated with the history of brain injury—and its treatment. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates studied battlefield head injuries and taught that craniotomy could help alleviate the consequences of these terrible wounds. World War I introduced large-scale explosives to the battlefield, leading to a plague of traumatic brain injuries—which in turn led to the development of cognitive rehabilitation strategies still in use today.Our recent wars have introduced a new kind ...

NY: Gillibrand Believes the Impossible; Making Gun Sales Illegal Will Work

New York is an anti-gun dystopia. IMG iStock-884181314 U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Those who wish to disarm other people have a disconnect with reality. They refuse to believe some things are not possible. This creates problems. One of the reasons people push to disarm others is they refuse to arm themselves. Having made that decision, or, having had that decision made for them; they personally see no cost to their disarming of others. Disarm that guy over there. He is not me. It doesn’t hurt m...

Kelly Bear Attack and the Myth: Combination Defense Against Grizzly Bear

Grizzly bear by Troy Nemitz, with permission U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- While searching for events where pistols were fired to defend against bears, I came across several references to an event that happened to Larry Kelly of Magnaport fame, in Alaska.

Several claimed the ammunition was at fault. Here is an examp...
