As anxiousness grows in the nation more than the IEBC standoff, analysts worry it could be an extension of the political rivalry in between Kenya’s two leading political households. The standoff once once more pits president Uhuru Kenyatta , the son of Kenya’s 1st president against Raila Odinga whose father was Kenya’s founding vice president. Is the present standoff a genuine political difficulty or a continuation of the long running political feud in between the two families. Murimi Mwangi requires a closer appear.

Rothfuss, Patrick – The Sensible Man’s Fear (2011 HB)
The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day Two
DAW Books, 2011
Jacket Design and style by G-Force Design
Cover art is a mixture of photographs by Ed Freeman and Matthias Clamer
From the Dust Jacket:
"There are 3 issues all smart men worry: the sea in storm, a evening with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man."
My name is Kvothe.
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most individuals are permitted in. I tread paths by moonlight that others worry to speak of throughout day. I have talked to Gods, loved girls, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
You could have heard of me.
So begins the tale of a hero told from his personal point of view – a story unequaled in fantasy literature. Now in THE Wise MAN’S Fear, Day Two of the Kingkiller Chronicle, an escalating rivalry with a powerful member of the nobility forces Kvothe to leave the University and seek his fortune abroad. Adrift, penniless, and alone, he travels to Vintas, where he quickly becomes entangled in the politics of courtly society. While attempting to curry favor with a strong noble, Kvothe uncovers an assassination attempt, comes into conflict with a rival arcanist, and leads a group of mercenaries into the wild, in an attempt to resolve the mystery of who (or what) is waylaying travelers on the King’s Road.
All the whilst, Kvothe searches for answers, attempting to uncover the truth about the mysterious Amyr, the Chandrian, and the death of his parents. Along the way, Kvothe is place on trial by the legendary Adem mercenaries, is forced to reclaim the honor of the edema Ruh, and travels into the Fae realm. There he meets Felurian, the faerie lady no man can resist, and who no man has ever survived…until Kvothe.
In THE Wise MAN’S Worry, Kvothe requires his very first measures on the path of the hero and learns how challenging life can be when a man becomes a legend in his own time.

You may have heard about the rivalry among Leon and Granada. So what’s the beef? When did this begin and what is it all about? It turns out that this one goes way back to the extremely origins of colonial Central America and continues up to the existing day.
Each of the cities were founded in 1524 by the Spaniard Francisco Hernández de Córdoba. Most accounts claim that Granada was founded earlier in the year and therefore is the oldest city in the Western Hemisphere and American Continent. It has often been alleged that León was in fact the first. However, in any case, the original León was destroyed by the volcano Momotombo and re-established some kilometers away.
For the colonial conquistadors, Granada was intended to be the administrative and political capital with straightforward transportation access on the shores of Lake Nicaragua. León was at 1st the military capital for Spanish troops defending the colony. León managed to achieve administrative energy which did not sit effectively with these in Granada. Also, from the very start there had been cultural differences with the much more aristocratic Granada. The two cities competed economically over their interests in shipping, trade, cattle and other items and services. Granada was residence to the landowners and León had much more merchants.
The true fighting quickly got underway for the duration of the fight for independence from Spain. In 1838 right after full independence warfare continued among the liberals in León and the conservatives in Granada. León was the 1st capital and it was then was moved between the two cities many occasions just before Managua became the capital in 1858 as a compromise answer.
A wonderful deal of the animosity in between the two cities is tied up in the relationship of Nicaraguans to the superpower of the American Continent the United States. This connection has deep roots. It is mentioned that the liberals in León had been great buddies and supporters to the liberal revolutionaries in the American colonies as they struggled against the British Empire. The British had interests all along the Caribbean coast of Central America and relations with the conservatives in Granada.
Numerous complexities surrounding the organization interests, canal proposals and other power struggles in between different groups and men and women in the United States, León, Granada and the rest of Nicaragua has woven a quite tangled internet of challenging to unravel history. The book “Confronting the American Dream: Nicaragua below U.S. Imperial Rule” by Michel Gobat does a great job demonstrating portion of the tumultuous history.
Among the many events, some of the most crucial ones are the William Walker incident, the US occupation, the Sandino period, the Somoza era, and the Sandinista revolution.
As time passed, the “León liberals” versus the “Granada conservatives” explanation does not neatly explain all the movements and events. It does not neatly divide all the incidents and struggles among the two cities and events that occurred, not just in the two cities, but all through the nation. The rivalry between the two cities, capitals of their regions and centers for larger parts of the nation, has continued until these days. However, the capital Managua now plays a significantly far more prominent function in the countries activities and has diffused some of the tension.
