Here are 5 things you should know.
1. How to properly perform CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver, and how to work an AED.
Fast response CPR can significantly increase the chance that someone will survive a cardiac episode with most or all of their mental faculties in check. Similarly, every minute without an AED during a cardiac episode increases the likelihood of significant brain injury by 7-10%, so fast retrieval and use of an AED can have life-changing effects on the patient.
Worse come to worse, a person needing CPR and an AED is already dead, so there is no harm in attempting CPR. An AED will also not shock the heart unless it detects a proper malfunctioning hearth rhythm, so there is no way to harm a victim of a cardiac episode by using the AED if it isn’t necessary.

2. MileUp is an app that pays you gift cards just for driving.
MileUp is an app from a vehicle safety group that collects data about driving and accident reporting who pays users via gift cards to popular retailers like Amazon. This app doesn’t have any battery or performance impact on phone and you can set it so that it only syncs on WiFi and not cellular also. They will also pay out $250 for recording an accident through the app and they offer bonuses for referrals and random ‘challenges’.
3. ACH (Automated Clearing House) transactions.
The ACH transactions can be reversed. The number of days within which you can have transactions modified depends on and can range from as little as three days to as much as 60 days after the initial transaction.
