Rod of Asclepius (Fiery Serpent on a pole)

Fig1: Rod of Asclepius

The rod of Asclepius takes its name from a greek God Asclepius who is associated with healing and medical art. Looking closely, you notice most medical organizations uses it as a symbol. It is sometimes confused for caduceus which some medical organisations also use in North America.

Fig 2: caduceus
The staff all have their greek history but according to philosophy, I learnt the oldest book in the world is the Bible. So whatever mythology associating a fiery snake upon a pole should be a copy cat.
In the Bible, referenced Numbers 21:8-9, Moses a servent of God who was tasked with taking the Isrealite out of Egypt the land they were held captive, to their promised land. On their journey, guess God wanted to teach them faith (read Num 21:4ff for details) so they were inflicted by a fiery serpent that claimed the lives of many.

Reasons for Premature Ejaculation and possible remedy

Premature ejaculation occur when a man expel semen immediately with minimal penile stimulation. The question is how premature is premature in sex when some individuals enjoy quickie. So premature is a function of both party having the intercourse but according to International society of Sexual Medicine, they define premature as ejaculation less than one minute after penetration. So no matter how much you love quickie, if you don't last more than a minute in bed then it's abnormal. Maybe you're suffering from premature ejaculation.

#NationalHempDay

The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared National Hemp Day to be observed annually beginning on February 4th, 2019. The cbdMD are honoured as the official founder of the national hemp day.

We have so many myths as how the hemp was discovered to be psychoactive. Some say, it was discovered by hunters. They noticed an environment where monkeys were easily captured. whenever they go there, they see lots of monkey sleeping some with the weed in there hands so they decided to experiment it and ate it and saw the vibes. Some other funny ones say it was a weed a god urinated on I guess that came out of smoking lots of weed. The truth is hemp as existed for a long time now.


Hemp has been a part of human civilization for thousands of years. Hemp fibers were used in some of the earliest civilization to make fabric for clothing and other materials. America's founding fathers drafted early documents on hemp paper and even used a "Hemp for victory" Campaign during the the second…

Poor nutrition, alcoholic intake and one which is worthy of note is genetic mutation. We expose ourselves to electromagnetic material like our mobile phones which is a transceiver. If we have any reason to fear for people livin…

Everyone thought he was dead till someone worked a magic with a traditional medicine we had talked about in this blog that kept my mind disturbed about a scientific explanation to what I just witnessed.
