Indigenous Americans - How They Established Democratic Governments Long Before The Current United States
Artifacts from a democratic body existed about the year 500 CE, long before the United States Congress was established in 1789.

Next Significant Development In The Vibrator Timeline - How Vibrator Changed From Medical Tool To A Sex Toy
The use of the vibrator in the sex arena is the next significant development in the vibrator timeline. For a gadget designed for sexual pleasure, the vibrator's development seems rather clinical. The device was therapeutically utilized for decades as a purported medical therapy for the unusual sickness of hysteria. The first vibrators appeared in the middle of the 1800s, so it's not a new technology.
The Dolphin, a Rhode Island whaler from the northeastern United States, set sail in 1850 but became aground off the coast of Patagonia in 1859. This research yields non-cutting dates until 1849. Using dendroarchaeological provenance methods and a unique method based on the gridded North American Drought Atlas, good correlations were found between the wreck's tree-ring width series and white oak and yellow pine tree ring reference chronologies from the eastern United States.
The atmospheric circulation over South America and the surrounding waters is a primary cause of the weather and hydroclimate of the Andes.
This article provides a quick review of the antibiotic era, from the discovery of the first antibiotics to the current situation, which is characterized by the emergence of difficult-to-treat multidrug-resistant illnesses. The development of novel strategies in the search for new antimicrobials, the design of more effective preventive measures, and, most importantly, a better understanding of the ecology of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance are all discussed as possible responses to the antibiotic resistance challenges.

Despite the fact that cannabis has a long history as a medicine in many countries around the world, including the United States, the political climate in the early twentieth century was not friendly to cannabis or hemp, creating the ideal conditions for cannabis in the post-prohibition era, with the mingling of unstable medicine, racism, greed, and power.

The cannabis plant has been connected with religions, migration, colonization, and political powers all over the world, from China to India, Africa to Latin America, and Europe to North America, generating a rich history of cannabis.
Some of the most prominent case studies should have been good stories since they featured prescription painkillers. Recruiting physicians as “key opinion leaders” (KOLs), a title designed to be psychologically rewarding, and paying them to deliver scripted promotional presentations to their peers, are just a few examples.
Research on the medical uses of cannabis was still restricted in the late 1980s and early 1990s, both in the United States and internationally. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) was mostly in charge of research at the time, and it was funding studies to learn more about the harmful effects of THC and cannabis. Only one grow house at the University of Mississippi provided medical-grade cannabis for research purposes which was the brain behind the medical legalization of cannabis.
Hemp was a common ingredient in Asian and Indian folk treatments as a cure-all, used to treat fever, burns, and headaches, as well as as a paste/poultice for wounds. Hashish, another name for cannabis, made its way back to Europe as a medication thanks to an Irish doctor operating in India, kicking off the Victorian age medical revival of cannabis.
