And if bystanders know how to respond, a victim’s odds of survival are much higher. The Homeland Security Department’s Stop the Bleed initiative aims to turn bystanders into rescuers—giving them the training to save lives. Medical and military personnel are leading one-hour classes all over the country that teach citizens how to apply pressure to a wound, pack a wound and (if possible) apply a tourniquet.

Feeding Boston kids, social change should be on different plates

Feeding Boston kids, social change should be on different plates

The Boston City Council is looking to rethink the way we feed our kids. The plan is to adopt an ordinance called the Good Food Purchasing Program, in use in other big cities around the U.S., including Chicago and Los Angeles. The GFPP would feature local purchasing preferences and avoid businesses with labor violations as well as put standards around animal welfare and healthy foods.
