In the News Today...

Did you read this article (from CNN) about how the song is helping doctors & students maintain close to the ideal number of chest compressions while doing CPR? I liked the doctor that noted that there was another song with a good beat to it (Queen's Another One Bites the Dust) but that it has the wrong message. ;-)

There has got to be a poem in this...

From the article--

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- "Stayin' Alive" might be more true to its name than the Bee Gees ever could have guessed: At 103 beats per minute, the old disco song has almost the perfect rhythm to help jump-start a stopped heart.
