efafbsEver had a paper cut and marvel at the amount of pain so little an injury can cause? Or how about a silver in your finger that throbs like it was a knife? Or a speck in your eye that feels like a boulder?

When most of us think about first aid, we think about the big injuries like severe cuts, broken bones, and those that lead to cardiac arrest. But we may only encounter one of these “big” injuries once in our life. The smaller injuries requiring first aid happen far more frequently. Because they are so common, there are also a lot of myths surrounding correct first aid for these minor problems.

When you were small, for example, someone probably told you to tilt your head back when you had a nosebleed. But you quickly discovered this caused …

The 1970s Were Incredibly Unkind To The Music Industry

miIn 1972 President Richard M. Nixon also abandoned his free trade principles and levied a 10% tax on all imports and sharply devalued the U.S. currency. A year later, he further devalued the currency, dramatically altering the course of international trade. For U.S. manufacturers, the devalued dollar was a bonanza that spurred export sales. Between 1973 and 1978, U.S. music exports surged from $38.3 million to $122.7 million. By contrast during the same period, U.S. music imports declined slightly, from $101.3 million in 1973 to $96.8 million in 1978.

Nixon’s devaluation sent the Japanese yen from 360 to the dollar to 250, forcing Japanese manufacturers to restructure their businesses or perish. Between 1973 and 1975, scores of Japanese guitar makers did fail as the country’s unit output sagged from 1.2 million to 725,000. Those firms that survived did so by …

1970s, Inflation, Madness

hiaHunger in America was “discovered” (at least as a political issue) by Sen. Robert Kennedy and former Sen. Joseph Clark as they visited the rural South. In Paris the Super-Marche de Poche opened in Paris. The store was fully automated and shelves were automatically restocked.

In his 1968 State of the Union address on Jan. 5 President Johnson called for a 10% income tax surcharge to offset a budget deficit estimated at $20 billion. On March 31 Johnson announced he would not seek re-election. Observers believed the burden of Vietnam was too much for the President.

Britain And Pacifism

bapAll over Britain, in city squares, on village greens, in town halls and school assembly rooms, stand the war memorials, inscribed with the wretchedly long lists of the first world war dead, then with the shorter lists of the second world war. Sometimes there are additions, sharp and clean in newly cut stone: the names of those who died yomping through the Falklands mud or were sent back in bodybags from Operation Desert Storm.

Generation after generation, Britain’s youth has fought and died. Yet one generation is missing from those seemingly inevitable lists: those who were of fighting age in the 1960s and 1970s. They were not called upon to fight a war and in all probability they would have refused to do so. The reaction against the Vietnam war of those who would have constituted the “officer class” demonstrated …
