Automobile crashes are still the No. 1 killer of teens in our country and while our society talks a lot about impaired driving ― texting while driving, drunk driving and so on, which are all serious concerns, there are other kinds of impaired driving too, such as driving with impaired tires. In honor of National Teen Driver Safety Week we spoke with Sarah Robinson, tire safety and driving expert, at Michelin North America, to get some tips to save lives.
Christina Lewis, of Saving Lives On the Go Training Center, was a Guest on The Phoenix Network’s July 14, 2018, Premiere Broadcast, to tell her story:
“It was the same thing everyday.

“I would wake up with this horrible sense of dread. Sometimes there were tears.I had to go to work. And I was miserable.
“It didn’t start off this way. When I got the job, I was jazzed. I was tasked with managing an entire agency. But it soon became clear that leveraging it, updating it, loving it, was not going to be a top priority. I had way too much other stuff on my plate. “I guess when they told me I would never get a raise, paid time off or insurance that was a pretty obvious red flag.
“Becoming an entrepreneur takes courage. A lot of praying & nudging from God. A little help (OK, a lot) from my family and friends.
“But I jumped off the deep end I did it. I gave my notice, and a few short weeks later, I signed my lease to my suite. I was sitting in front of the computer, wondering what the heck I had gotten myself into, but knowing deep down that…
…it would all work out
“And has it ever. Sure, the beginning was bumpy. I had to learn so much about being an entrepreneur. I needed to use some of my savings. But it all started coming into place.
I got my first clients (thank you to the small businesses that supported me right from the start – you know who you are and I appreciate you!!).”
Christina was inspired to start Saving Lives On the Go Training Center to provide on-location CPR training, ending with CPR Certification, etc., because heart attacks kill, and CPR saves lives.
She knows CPR is so important because there’s a heart attack about every 20 seconds in this country, and a death about once a minute.
Saving Lives On the Go trains children as young as 8 years old.

Black Physician Pulled A 26-Hour Shift Helping People And Saving Live, But On His Way Home The Terrible Happened
A black man from a working-class family worked hard to become medical doctor.
He now works long, twelve hours of a thankless shift, and STILL has to deal with this.
Here’s his story:
I’m a black man. I’m about 6’2″, average build. Nothing too fancy. I think I look normal, not intimidating in the slightest. I grew up in a middle-class neighborhood. My parents were blue collar workers, but provided for me and my sister. We were taught manners, said our pleasantries. I got detention once in fifth grade because I was late to class because I spilled paint in my Art class and had to clean it up. But that’s it, that’s the worst trouble I have ever been in in my life.
I am a surgical resident at a hospital you have probably heard of. I was educated in a Top 10 university and went to medical school at a pseudo-Ivy League institution. I have had a great life. I have made sure of it. So have my parents.
Of course, I have noticed racism throughout my life. I have been pulled over and the officer has never given me a clear answer. Sometimes, they will straight up lie and tell me that I was speeding when I know I was not. Once, I was stopped and frisked. The officer apologized and told me that I matched the description of a criminal-on-the-run in the area. The only description was “black man, average build.” I never reported this, but I always remember it.
Today, I was leaving after a 26-hour shift at the hospital. I’m in my fourth year of residency and the hours get longer and longer, but I’m almost done. Today was particularly grueling, because I found out that a patient I have worked with since the start of my residency is now deemed ‘terminal’ and will be moved to hospice care. It sucked, it broke my heart. It was like four years’ worth of work had been erased.
As I was walking across the parking lot, a young man younger than me, maybe twenty-five, leaned out of
With major surgery now occurring at a rate of 234 million procedures per year – one for every 25 people – and studies indicating that a significant percentage result in preventable complications and deaths, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched a new safety checklist for surgical teams to use in operating theatres, as part of a major drive to make surgery safer around the world
"Preventable surgical injuries and deaths are now a growing concern," said Dr Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO. "Using the Checklist is the best way to reduce surgical errors and improve patient safety."
Several studies have shown that in industrial countries major complications are reported to occur in 3-16% of inpatient surgical procedures, with permanent disability or death rates of approximately 0.4-0.8%. In developing countries studies suggest a death rates of 5-10 % during major surgery. Mortality from general anaesthesia alone is reported to be as high as one in 150 in parts of sub-Saharan Africa. Infections and other postoperative complications are also a serious concern around the world. These studies suggest that approximately half of these complications may be preventable.
