The Staff Of Aesculapius

Little known fact:  the caduceus was not the original symbol of the medical profession.  The symbol shown here, the staff of aesculapius, is the authentic medical symbol.

The latin phrase, "Aut tace aut loquere meliora silencio" means
"Only when the words outperform silence"
which basically means that Nostrums is about speaking out only when it's something important.
