CPR Hands only

This is the useful (and funny) video Almudena tried to show us last Thursday, when talking about First Aid.

Watch it! We could need to do it one day.  It could be a question of "staying alive!"

'Lives in danger': Russian woman's view on new domestic violence law

The world is mad!

Read this article and tell me if you agree with me.

Russia is decriminalising domestic violence that does not cause serious bodily harm. Speaking anonymously, one young mother tells Sky's Moscow correspondent John Sparks why the change is "very dangerous".
"During the Soviet period it was difficult for women. A battered wife could go to a representative of the Communist Party, tell them about domestic violence inside the family, and a few representatives of the party could try to put pressure on her husband.
"Of course, you could also put pressure on the police - not too much pressure - but it was something you could do.
"That was one part of the reality facing women. Another part related to women's mental state. Sometimes in the Soviet Union women tried to hide domestic violence in the family. That's because they understood that people would laugh in court. They knew that colleagues would gossip, 'oh, she allows her husband to beat her'.

Sometimes women just closed their mouths and lied to everybody. She would say she was injured when she 'cleaned the room' or 'went down the stairs'. I have to tell you those things have not really changed today.

"The destruction of the Soviet Union was an interesting moment. Everybody thought life would be better than before, but violence in the home got worse. Women were not protected.
"It was difficult to make police do their job and when the new law comes in I think it will be like returning to the 1990s.
"I grew up during this period. Adults didn't know what to do or how to live. Some men were broken by alcohol. That happened to my neighbours. The wife was very angry at her husband because he didn't bring back money for the family and they had two little children.
"He worked in the police at the time and often went unpaid. He was disappointed with his life and started to drink. This man beat his wife and his kids every single day.
"He did a lot of strange things too - for example, he threw the TV set out of the window. The wife filed a lot of reports with the police, but they didn't pay any attention. They told her only, 'you must get a divorce'.

"However, the truth about domestic violence is that 80% of the Russian people are not really interested.
"If fact, some Russian women who dream of money and property have been taking advantage. They scratch and spank themselves, go the police, make a report and be happy.
"The husband goes to prison and the lover comes to bed. In this regard, maybe the new legislation is not so bad.
"Of course there is another point of view: this new law could be very dangerous to women. If the husband starts to beat his wife, he'll only get a fine. But that might make him angry and he might start to beat wife again.
"At that moment, he could injure a woman very seriously or even kill her. Unfortunately this is human psychology. That's why I think Russian politicians need to think about the consequences of their law.
"In my country we have a lot of cases with aggressive teenagers ganging up on other girls because they have bad make up, or clothes, or something else. And these girls don't get a normal punishment - because they are teenagers.
"Personally, I think that the government should think about how to stop all violence - particularly when they are teenagers. If a son sees how his father beats his mother this pattern will be repeated when they are older. I think the politicians should start here."
