CPR Study Says Skip the Mouth-to-Mouth for Heart Attacks The goal of cardiopulmonary resuscitation on people with cardiac arrest is to keep them alive--without brain damage. A Japanese study of more than 4000 incidents shows that those who received chest compressions alone did twice as well as those who received both chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitations. Traditional CPR requires both chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Lots of bystanders don't perform mouth-to-mouth, for fear of contracting disease or doing it wrong. Dr. Gordon Ewy is Chief Cardiologist at the University of Arizona Medical School.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
