"Nature" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (poetry reading)
Longfellow was a great poet with a great attitude to life. He's often criticised but there are few poets who could write a sonnet as good as this one. The first painting, "Hand in Hand" came from this site: http://mikiaboom.wordpress.com/2007/11/11/hand-in-hand/ "Joseph's Dream", 1790, was painted by Gaetano Gandolfi As a fond mother, when the day is o'er, Leads by the hand her little child to bed, Half willing, half reluctant to be led, And leave his broken playthings on the floor, Still ga

4.2 Why do I need to know about first aid?

It takes only 3 to 4 minutes for a blocked airway to kill someone, but it can take more than 8 minutes for an ambulance to arrive on the scene. A simple procedure like opening an airway can save someone's life while you are waiting for professional help to arrive.

If you are working with harmful substances (chemicals, biological agents and dusts) you must know the first aid treatment if you are exposed. Do not expect a nurse or a doctor to know everything about every harmful substance.

Do subliminal images in advertising affect your purchases? Anthony Greenwald, professor of psychology at the University of Washington, discusses the growing trend in this 1993 interview with Upon Reflection host Marcia Alvar.

"Pirates - A Ballad of John Silver" by John Masefield (poetry reading)
The "pirate voice" that everybody imitates is entirely the invention of Robert Newton, who played Long John Silver and Blackbeard. It is an exaggeration of the accents of men from Devon and Cornwall because many seafaring men came from these counties. Robert Newton, when he wasn't being a pirate, had a remarkably mellifluous voice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEKcll7AvSE (he enters at 0.20) Incidentally, International Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day is 19th September Johnny Depp's camp portrayal

Strong shaking in Los Angeles expected from southern San Andreas earthquake
The southernmost San Andreas fault has a high probability of rupturing in a large (greater than magnitude 7.5) earthquake sometime during the next few decades. New simulations show that the chain of sedimentary basins between San Bernardino and downtown Los Angeles form an effective waveguide that channels Love waves along the southern edge of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains. Earthquake scenarios with northward rupture, in which the guided wave is efficiently excited, produce unusua
