STROKE: Remember The 1st Three Letters… S.T..R …My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks.STROKE IDENTIFICATION:During a party, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. (they offered to call ambulance)They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.)She had suffered a stroke at the party . Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today.Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this…STROKE IDENTIFICATION:A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.RECOGNIZING A STROKERemember the ‘3’ steps, STR . Read and Learn!Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions :S * Ask the individual to SMILE ..T * = TALK.

First reblog post that actually saves a life.

This is a life-saving post.

the more you know

yeah don’t think that this can’t happen to you or someone you know if they’re young. my cousin’s wife is 33 and she had a stroke last year

I’ve had a stroke. It happens to people, and the more you know about this kind of stuff, the better.Because it could be important to know.



LIVE SAVING. WOOOAHH. REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG 

Had a family member almost die of one, so signal boosting because you never know when you could save a life.


While taking my first aid courses we were taught something similar. It was F.A.S.T. F for face- one side should droop a bitA for arms- raise your arms and look for them being uneven S for speech - ask them to say a simple sentence T for time - you record the time it happened because it could be vital for doctors to know. It’s basically the same just in a different way to remember if the first method didn’t stick.

April 21, 1989: Tiananmen Square Protests Begin

On this day in 1989, students began protesting in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, the symbolic central space of China. Several weeks later, when the government sent in the army to end the demonstrations, the citizens of Beijing poured into the streets in support of the students.

The demonstrations ended in a massacre on the night of June 3-4, when the government sent the troops into the city with orders to clear Tiananmen Square. One day later, a single, unarmed young man stood his ground before a column of tanks on the Avenue of Eternal Peace. Captured on film and video by Western journalists, this extraordinary confrontation became an icon of the struggle for freedom around the world.

In 2012, FRONTLINE took a look back at how the iconic image of the “tank man” came to be, more than twenty years after the massacre at Tiananmen Square.

Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

CRANBERRY MINT JULEP

Ingredients:

  • 8-10 mint leaves
  • 2 sugar cubes, more if you prefer it sweet
  • crushed ice, as needed
  • 2 1/2 oz bourbon of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp cranberry syrup, recipe follows

Preparation:

  1. Place mint leaves and sugar cubes in a glass.
  2. Add 1 Tbsp of cranberry syrup and muddle everything together until sugar cubes have dissolved.
  3. Fill glass with crushed ice.  Add 2 1/2 oz of your favorite bourbon.  (DO NOT use large ice cubes, you want CRUSHED ice.  The drink is very strong and potent.  It needs the crushed ice to dilute drink slightly.)  Use a spoon to gently stir mixture together.
  4. Add additional crushed ice.  Add another 1 Tbsp of cranberry syrup.  Garnish drink with mint leaves and fresh cranberries.

Cranberry Syrup, makes about 1/2 cup (double or triple as needed)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh cranberries
  • zest of half a lime

Preparation:

1. In a small sauce pot, bring water and sugar to a boil.  Add cranberries and lime zest.  Over medium-high heat, cook mixture for 3-5 minutes until cranberries begin bursting open.  Once all the cranberries have burst, remove from heat.  (Do not overcook, you don’t want the cranberries to turn to mush.)

2.  Let mixture cool to room temperature.  Transfer to a container with a lid, let chill in the fridge until mixture is cold.

3.  Remove mixture from fridge and strain.  At this point the syrup should have thicken.  Discard cranberries (or save to snack on!).  Return cranberry syrup to fridge until ready to use.
