Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
This is so important!
Really good friend of mine from work back home had seizures a few times on the job. This is crucial information.
Thank you!!!! This is all correct and the reason behind not holding them down is so we (epileptics) dont break our own bones etc and as for mouth we could break our teeth or your finger
A disturbing story emerged out of the Bronx on Thursday. Two Muslim sisters, Lamis Chapman and Khalia Wilson, aged 12 and 14 respectively, told the New York Daily News that they were thrown to the ground, put in chokeholds, and had their hijabs violently torn off by members of the NYPD, for a reason that remains unclear.
Chapman and Wilson said they were playing handball around 9:30 pm in the park near their home in the Lester Patterson Houses in Mott Haven, the Bronx, when police approached them and asked them to leave, as the park was closed.
The girls recounted that the cops followed them out of the park, and one grabbed Wilson from behind, putting her in a chokehold and wrestling her to the ground. “They said they asked for ID. I didn’t hear them,” reported Wilson. When her sister protested, she was also thrown to the ground, and both sisters’ headscarves were ripped off.
"I kept saying, ‘I’m 14! What are you doing? We’re not bad kids,’" explained Wilson.
When their 15-year-old brother, Shytike Wilson, saw the police assaulting his younger sisters from a window, he ran to their aid. “I asked them why my sisters were in handcuffs,” he said, when the police, “charged me, picked me up, and slammed me on the floor.”
An 18-year-old college student, Jonathan Harris, became involved when he heard the girls screaming and ran to the park to help. He told the cops to leave the teens alone and took out his cell phone to record the incident, but was also subjected to police abuse.
New Orleans — NOPD needs your help in locating a 19-year-old missing woman.
Hayley Howard was last seen driving away from the parking lot of 2000 Lakeshore Dr. at the UNO Lakefront Campus around 1:50 a.m. Saturday. Her family has not seen or heard from her since her disappearance.
Police say that her cell phone pinged in the area of Leon C. Simon about 2:00 a.m. Saturday, and near the Irish Bayou around 6:00 Saturday morning.
Hayley was last seen intoxicated in her vehicle, a 2002 silver Toyota Corolla with Louisiana license plate XBP 643.
She is described as a Caucasian female, about 5’3” tall, and weighing about 105 lbs. Hayley was last seen wearing a knee-length, black dress with white polka dots, and black shoes with a small heel and silver aceent on the toe.
Anyone with information about Hayley’s whereabouts is urged to call Detective Sandra Contreras at the sixth district station at 658-6060 or 658-6146.
“A friend told deputies she stopped for a flat tire on her way home to Slidell and a passing motorist helped her. The NOPD says they determined her cell phone was near Irish Bayou around 6 a.m. Saturday.”
Y’all please reblog this! I ate lunch with this girl every day my junior year of high school, she has always been so nice to me (we go to college together now) and I can’t stand the thought of anything bad happening to her :(
i figured it would be a good idea to post more recent pictures of her as well
Everyone keep and eye out for her.
Perhaps not the best time, but I noticed something very smart done by her parents and friends. These posters were up at Taco Bell today looking for her. Place the photos in her age demographic, really smart idea. I hope it helps and brings her home.
I was recently commissioned to photograph five generations of descendants of Solomon Northup, author of “12 Years a Slave”. The feature can be seen in this week’s newsstand ‘Oscar’s Edition’ of The Hollywood Reporter as well as here.
However small, I feel honored to play a role in the sharing of Solomon Northup’s legacy. It was definitely an experience that I’ll always treasure. Enjoy!
fucking stop it with acting like florida is the only state with stand your ground. this image is from 2012. (it’s also from this article from mother jones: http://m.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/03/nra-trayvon-martin)
ALSO! Each Stand Your Ground law may be different. I inquired about this in my Criminal Justice class and the teacher said that, though Louisiana has SYG, an AGGRESSOR CAN NOT CLAIM SELF DEFENSE. Had Zimmerman been tried in Louisiana with our wording, this may have changed the outcome of the case, as Florida’s law has wording that allows the aggressor to claim self defense. Stand Your Ground laws CAN be effective, but the wording has to correct and fair to those who actually deserve to use the defense.
