Here are some one liners...
The Lost Treasure of Malacca and the Ship of Gold -- Afonso de Albuquerque has looted the city of Malacca and is sending 60 tons of gold back home. Unfortunately it goes to the bottom and is never recovered. A treasure hunter was recently found. He allegedly made off with $400 million is sunken treasure.
The Launching of the Great Michael -- The Great Michael is a great ship but poor in handling. It will eventually be sold to France.
Here Comes the Holy League -- The Pope switches sides and joins with Venice against France. I also talk about "Red States" and "Blue States" and what those colors mean in terms of effective control as opposed to apparent control.
