This-Spotify-Playlist-Will-Help-You-Do-CPR-Properly

We’re of the belief that every person should know basic life-saving techniques. From doing the Heimlich to applying a tourniquet, certain pieces of knowledge spread among the population benefit society as a whole. When it comes to CPR, one of the tricks to doing it properly is doing it at the right pace. That’s why NewYork-Presbyterian created this clever Spotify playlist. Each of the songs is performed at a rate of 100/120 beats per minute, which is the BPM for appropriate CPR. While we think it’s a bit crazy to pull up a playlist the moment you need to act, we do think it’s something you could listen to and get a hang for the speed with a little practice. 

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
