350 000

Drones could soon be dropping off packages at customers’ doors. But researchers in Sweden have drones in mind for a different, potentially lifesaving delivery: automated external defibrillators.

Using drones to carry AEDs to people who are in cardiac arrest could reduce the time between when patients go into cardiac arrest and when they receive the first shock from an AED, the researchers say.

The more time a person spends in cardiac arrest before being shocked with an AED, the lower the chance of survival. Shocking someone within three minutes gives them the best shot.

More than 350,000 cardiac arrests happen across the U.S. in places other than hospitals each year, according to the American Heart Association — and a person’s chance of surviving is about 1 in 10. Drone-delivered AEDs beat ambulance trip times to the scenes of cardiac arrests, the researchers say in a letter published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Originally conceived as a vehicle for Marilyn Monroe, Irma la Douce was recast with Shirley MacLaine after Monroe’s death in 1962. The film, made for US $5 million, grossed more than US $40 million worldwide. MacLaine was paid US $350,000 and an undisclosed percentage of the takings.

It is unknown whether the dog managed to negotiate as lucrative a deal, but it is probably safe to assume it never went without doggy treats or coquettish hair ribbons again.

Câu chuyện Iceland Và Bài Học Cho Việt Nam

Dạo trước tôi có giới thiệu cho các bạn nền văn minh cổ đại Babylon. Hôm nay nhân dịp được một gợi ý xin giới thiệu với các bạn về quốc gia Iceland.

Iceland từng là một quốc gia Bắc Âu nghèo nàn bị lãng quên. Tất nhiên đó chỉ là một câu chuyên xa lắc xa lơ thời thế chiến 2. Ngày nay họ là quốc gia giàu có và văn minh bậc nhất thế giới. 350.000 cư dân nơi đây không phải là những kẻ du mục man rơi xứ lạnh xưa kia, họ là những con người được khai sáng và sở hữu một nền dân chủ hoàn hảo.
Tuy nhiên, điều tôi muốn đề cập chính ở đây không chỉ là sự giàu có của quốc gia này. Iceland nằm tại vùng cực lạnh lẽo nên không tiếp giáp bất cứ con đường thương mại lớn nào của thế giới. Họ chỉ có một chút quặng đồng không đáng kể. Những cánh rừng đại ngàn ư? Iceland bị bao phủ bởi một lớp băng dày đặc xen kẽ những hố núi lửa. Chính điều kiện khắc nghiệt ấy không cho phép bất cứ một ngọn cỏ nào sinh sôi nảy nở.
Nhìn chung Iceland chẳng có tài nguyên thiên nhiên nào đáng kể.

Iceland có hai ngành công nghiệp chủ đạo là khai thác thủy hải sản và du lịch ( chiếm khoảng 10% tổng GDP).

Hãy nhìn vào Việt Nam chúng ta. Đất nước chúng ta có hàng trăm đường giàu có. Chúng ta có một nguồn tài nguyên phong phú và vị trí địa kinh tế chính trị bậc nhất châu Á. Vậy mà cớ sao chúng ta thua kém một đất nước Iceland như vậy. Nói một cách khách quan nhất thì mọi điều kiện của đất nước ta đều ăn đứt nước bạn.

Chính những điều khó khăn của Iceland đã làm nảy sinh một câu hỏi Iceland đã vươn lên như thế nào?

Sự ngộ nhân mối liên hệ giữa tài nguyên thiên nhiên và phát triển kinh tế đã gây ra nhiều sai lầm tai hại. Một trong những sai lầm đó là sự hình thành chủ nghĩa thực dân khai thác thuộc địa của thế kỉ trước. Iceland có nguồn tài nguyên duy nhất đáng giá là con người. Trong khi các nguồn tài nguyên khác đang dần cạn kiệt thì , nguồn tài nguyên con người càng sinh sôi nảy nở một khi đã khai thác. Từ đó, Iceland đã quyết tâm xây dựng một nền dân chủ nhân bản thực sự. Như vậy, Iceland giàu có nhờ yêu tố con người.

Vậy một câu hỏi đặt ra là nếu Iceland sống theo cách của Việt Nam chúng ta thì sẽ ra sao? Nên nhớ rằng khi những kẻ xâm lược chiếm đoạt được Babylon cổ đại, nền văn minh ấy nhanh chóng trở về dáng vẻ hoang sơ là một ngọn đồi hoang. Babylon cũng giống như Iceland với đầy những khó khăn ngoại cảnh nhưng họ đều đạt được sự giàu mạnh nhờ sở hữu nền dân chủ tiến bộ nhất vào thời đại của củ họ.

Trở lại câu chuyện của Việt Nam… Câu trả lời là không và mãi mãi như vậy nếu chúng ta vẫn tiếp tục chối bỏ những giá trị của dân chủ. Tương lai của chúng ta sẽ hoàn toàn do chúng ta quyết định!

I went to an Australian-style coffee place on Sunday and avocado toast on the menu was $13 which seemed kind of high*, so I decided to treat that as the Snake Person Toast Problem

Median home value in Riverdale, Bronx (a reasonable place for me to buy a house if I didn’t have soul-crushing debt): about $350,000

Minimum home downpayment is usually 5% of the asking price: 17,500

Number of avocado toasts to forgo: 1346

Number of years this would take if you go out to brunch both weekend days every weekend and get just an avocado toast and would instead give up brunch entirely: about 13

Meanwhile the house price has probably tripled in the ensuing 13 years

Great math dude

*I didn’t get the toast and I do not as a rule get avocado toast, because I don’t really like avocados much and I can make toast myself, thanks. Maybe this isn’t high?

Opposition Leader Tests Public Support for Bid to Topple Putin
Aleksei A. Navalny calls for an anticorruption protest across Russia on Monday, and aims to run against the entrenched president — if he can get on the ballot.
By Neil MacFarquhar

“Money should be distributed evenly across the country; all this money swallowed around the country is collected in Moscow, where it is stolen,” he told an enthusiastic audience of mostly young people in April in Vladimir, a small city of about 350,000 roughly 115 miles northeast of the capital. “Here we live among ruins and talk about stability.”

He accuses the Putin administration of making a cult out of stability to camouflage low salaries, poor housing and dismal public health services. “People think that it is impossible to have a normal, happy life in Russia,” he said. “We can live better, have more; we can dream.

Experts blame climate change for lightning-strike fatalities in Bangladesh

Bangladesh had evacuated at least 350,000 people after Cyclone Mora lashed coastal areas last month. On June 12, heavy monsoon rain had also triggered a series of landslides and floods in Rangamati, Chittagong and Bandarban - three hilly districts of Bangladesh - and killed at least 152 people.

The latest reports say that at least 22 people have been killed due to lightning strikes in the past few days and experts blame it on the global climate change. According to data, around 200 lightning-strike fatalities were reported last year.

Deforestation in the area also contributed to the devastation as taller trees, like palm, act as lightning conductors. Experts say the death toll could be more as most of the cases go unreported, Phys.org reported.

A couple and their young daughter were among the recent lightning-strike fatalities. They were killed while working on a peanut farm.

Now, steps such as planting a million palm trees are being taken by Bangladesh officials to avoid these deaths. Around 20,000 youths have been trained by the meteorological department to stay safe from lightning. The Bangladesh government is also attempting to warn people ahead of storms using loudspeakers.

Experts also say that 2017 will be the worst monsoon season since 2007. Reaz Ahmed, head of Bangladesh’s Disaster Management Department, also says that the landslides last week were the worst in the country’s history.

Excellent news for families and traditional values

In addition to the traditional family being now officially protected by the Slovak constitution, a new campaign arose calling for a referendum further extending the protection of a traditional family but also children. The campaign collected 300 000 signatures out of the required 350 000 so far.

If this referendum succeeds and there is a high chance it will, these are the four main points of it:

1. Definition of marriage being recognized solely as a union between a man and a woman.

2. Any group of same sex couples prohibited from adopting and raising children.

3. Prohibiting legal recognition of same sex couples which provided loopholes for raising children by said couples.

4. Protecting children from sexual and social engineering experiments, preventing schools from forcing children to attend sex education classes if they or their parents disagree with their content.

Hm, raising a family in Slovakia seems more and more viable. Who would have thought that such a small conservative country in this hodge-podge of socialist mess called the European union would become the harbinger of family and traditional values in this rotten world?
