Apologies for light posting this week, as I'm really busy. For now, a few quick hits:
This is alarming: CPR is often done wrong. And by real doctors, not just random people who got CPR-certified by the Red Cross.
The new double-decker Airbus A380. When I was a kid, I read about this in a magazine (back when the plane was still on the drawing board) and thought it was really cool. I always had a fascination with the upper deck on a Boeing 747-400 - how cool to have an upper desk all the way along! My enthusiasm has dimmed, but it's still pretty neat.
And continuing on the theme of how really simple things can do a lot of good in developing countries, a simple water filter system may be saving tens of thousands of lives in Sri Lanka.
