‘Send a Card to a Friend’ Day

This Week is National Burn Awareness Week-   While fewer Americans die in fires compared to 10 years ago, every year close to 500,000 people suffer burns severe enough to seek medical treatment. Source: Wake Forest Baptist Health Burn Center      www.wakehealth.edu/Burn-Center/

 

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals will hear from lawyers from both the federal government, and from states suing to stop the president’s temporary ban on refugees. It’s not immediately clear when the 9th Circuit might rule, but the legal fight may ultimately reach the U.S. Supreme Court.  ABC News  https://goo.gl/4npsYz

 

Did you know that when you sleep, your brain shrinks?

Yep.  That could explain a lot.  Actually, the synapses (or the connections between neurons) do shrink overnight while you sleep.  They shrink, so you can receive new info after rest. If they don’t shrink, they’ll burn out.

*We should learn a lot from our synapses…    https://goo.gl/NnMDET

 

Congratulations to Lonnie Wimmer, a Lewisville firefighter, for his quick thinking back in December. Lonnie saved 30 people from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. BTW: Lonnie was off-duty at the time.

*For going above the call of duty, Kidde (KID- dah) – a global leader in fire safety products – will donate 100 carbon monoxide alarms to citizens in low-income communities on Lonnie’s behalf through the Forsyth County Fire and Rescue Association.  Press Release

Of the five Super Bowl rings Robert Kraft has earned as owner of the New England Patriots, one of them is ‘missing in action’?

Kraft retelling his 2005 story about his Super Bowl 39 ring.

Kraft was on a business trip to Russia in 2005 when he showed the ring to Russian President Vladimir Putin . Kraft says Putin put on the ring…and didn’t give it back.  A Putin spokesman said in 2013 that the ring was a ‘GIFT’ and the Russian leader would send Kraft a replacement if he wanted.

*Kraft’s Super Bowl 39 ring is still on display at the Kremlin. https://goo.gl/oQqk0N
