Don’t get the God’s Mad…

Welcome to the Wild World of Mythology

As Medusa found out, you don’t get the God’s mad … especially the one that you work at their temple.

She was originally a golden-haired, fair maiden, who, as a priestess of Athena, was devoted to a life of celibacy; however, after being wooed by Poseidon and falling for him, she forgot her vows and married him. For this offence, she was punished by the goddess in a most terrible manner. Each wavy lock of the beautiful hair that had charmed her husband was changed into a venomous snake; her once gentle, love-inspiring eyes turned into blood-shot, furious orbs, which excited fear and disgust in the mind of the onlooker; whilst her former roseate hue and milk-white skin assumed a loathsome greenish tinge.

Repulsed by her looks, Medusa fled into Africa. Everywhere one of her snakes/ hair fell out – venomous snakes came to be. She hid until her life…

Who is Hades?

Who is Hades?

Welcome to the Wild World of Mythology

Who is Hades? Why is he important? Anyone care to take a guess at this one?

Hades is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon. He is the God of the Underworld and later the word became the same as the word for the Underworld. He is the oldest of the three brothers and the first born of Cronus and Rhea.

Hades with his brothers Zeus and Poseidon were able to defeat the Titans and their father Cronus. Afterwards they agreed on the split that we all know of today. Zeus was in the heavens, Poseidon was in the water and Hades was in the Underworld.

The most common animal known to roam with Hades is Cerberus. history_clash_of_gods_the_cult_of_hades_sf_still_624x352 homm5_inferno_creature_cerberus

Who is Imhotep?

Welcome to the Wild World of Mythology

Who is Imhotep? Is he the person from the movies The Mummy? Was he really the keeper of the dead?

Sorry but the movies got it very wrong.

Imhotep did live but it was during the 27th century BCE. The Pharaoh was Djoser who was the second ruler of Egypt’s third dynasty. He was later worshipped as the god of medicine in both Egypt and in Greece. He was also an architect and a statesman.

One of the things that he was known to have been the architect of the step pyramid, built the necropolis of Saqqarah in the city of Memphis.

With Imhotep’s high standing in Djoser’s court is known by an inscription with his name on a statue. There are several titles on the statue including chief of the sculptors and chief of the seers. While there is no contemporary account that refers to Imhotep as a…

Medical Treatment 101

This is for those that need a reminder – medical treatment can’t be denied to any person in the United States in time of an emergency. Money doesn’t come into the question because the hospital must triage you and stabilize you by federal law.

The law is called Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) and it went into effect in 1986. This was done to ensure public access to emergency services regardless to the ability to pay. (https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Legislation/EMTALA/)

The exact wording from the page is “In 1986, Congress enacted the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) to ensure public access to emergency services regardless of ability to pay. Section 1867 of the Social Security Act imposes specific obligations on Medicare-participating hospitals that offer emergency services to provide a medical screening examination (MSE) when a request is made for examination or treatment for an emergency medical condition (EMC), including active labor, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. Hospitals are then required to provide stabilizing treatment for patients with EMCs. If a hospital is unable to stabilize a patient within its capability, or if the patient requests, an appropriate transfer should be implemented.”

The other major component of medical treatment 101 is for those who have lost their jobs and have their medical through the job that they had. It is called Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). It came out in 1985 Cobra gives workers who have lost their jobs to pay up to 102% of the cost of the plan. This site gives a lot of information and a way to contact the US Department of Labor (https://www.dol.gov/general/topic/health-plans/cobra)

There is no one who should be without insurance. If you don’t and have to go to the hospital there is something that they don’t like to talk about and that is they have a charity fund.

I know that money talks but guess what … if you are sick you need medical more than the money – your life is more valuable.

Do Walls Work?

Do walls work?

It would if you needed to build a house. If you are in a country with a wall around it, then no. The reason is that walls are meant to keep people out and in this world today of a global market then you are not going to make it.

When have walls ever worked?

When you need to have a warm home then yes, the walls would work. As Germany found out after World War 2 when there was a wall in Berlin people found ways to get around it. When Berlin had the wall, it was to prevent people from going to the West. There were more freedoms in the west side of Berlin and there were better jobs.

With President (didn’t want to say that word with the next one) Trump wanting to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico this is not good. The problem is that he honestly feeling that he is right with this.

This is only one of the stupid things that have been done lately. Mr. Trump is wanting to get list made of people who are Muslims, and they are Americans the same way that it was done in Germany during the 1930’s.

If there are list made, will be Muslims first, then other religions, then different color skin, what is next?

Are we going to be having a bar code put on our arms? Are we going back in time? I feel so sorry for the survivors of the German Camps to have to go through this again. I am so sorry that the people who grew up with the family members that went through that hell. They have my respect, love and I will defend them.

Aten 

Welcome to the Wild World of Mythology

If we turn the sands of time back, back to when the world was young and take the magic carpet over to Egypt we can find the time of Achenaten and begin to understand a bit more of the world.

Achenaten was the husband of Nefertiti and the father of Tutankhamun (Tut). He was the first known leader to believe in one God. This was during the time when Egypt, and most of the world believed in many Gods.

The reign of Achenaten lasted for 17years. The capital of Egypt was moved to Amarna, and the people were told that the only God was the Aten.

The capital city of Amarna was built with amazing speed due to the use of smaller blocks of stone. This is also the first time that Egyptian rulers were painted as they really looked.

King Tutankhamun

King Tutankhamun

Welcome to the Wild World of Mythology

We all know who King Tutankhamun was? The ‘Boy King’ of Egypt but there is more to him than we know. Let’s take a magic carpet ride back to the time of the Pharaohs and take a look at what the world was like then.

First off let’s look at his family. His father was Pharaoh Amenhotep IV who changed his name to Akhenaten. The reason for this is that he had been excluded from the traditional worship of the Egyptian Gods. This was due to the fact that he looked different than the rest of the family.

When he became Pharaoh, he had not been the first choice, but his older brother had been but died. He had only known the warmth of the sun and believed that the sun disk or Aten was the one true god.

When Akhenaten had a vision he had the old capitol city…
