Lessons in car-seat safety help put new parents at ease

BY CHRISTINA TASCON | Correspondent
[email protected]

Taking home a baby from the hospital

is as thrilling as it is completely daunting

for new parents. Organizations like Safe

Kids Coalition and the Children’s Services

Council of St. Lucie County help ease at

least one of those worries—the car seat

which will carry their child home safely.

Most consumers never read their car

seat instructions, but a car seat protects

the most dependent members of a family

and its installation and proper use is vital.

Car seats are complicated and, with tech-

nological safety requirements, installing

them properly is what separates a safe

baby from one that could needlessly be in-

jured from a slip of a strap.

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading

cause of injury and death for children with

the most vulnerable to injury between the

ages of 4 and 8. The Department of High-

way Safety released information that a

properly installed and implemented car

seat can reduce children’s death risks by

Making noise about dangers of ‘silent’ heart attacks

We all know what a person experi-
encing a heart attack looks like, right?
They’re in obvious pain, and may clutch
their chest. Their skin is pale and they
are sweating. They are having trouble
breathing, and they look like they’re
about to pass out. Hard to miss, or to mis-

of a heart attack. But, according to a study
done at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Cen-

tacks do not present in this way; in fact,
there may be no signs or symptoms at all.

Despite the lack of outward signs, “si-
lent” heart attacks still affect blood flow
to the muscle of the heart (this is called
ischemia) and can be just as dangerous as
symptomatic heart attacks. The tell-tale
signs of a silent heart attack are usually
detected later by an electrocardiogram
(EKG).

Vero Beach cardiologist Dr. Arley Peter
agrees that some heart attacks are not

but not the type people associate with
heart attacks. “People may feel a little

WHICH FINESSES SHOULD SOUTH TAKE? WEST NORTH EAST

SOUTH
In this week’s deal from Steve Conrad of Manhasset, New York, South is in three no- AQJ
trump, faced with finesses in three suits. What is his optimum strategy? AK54
983
This is the most common auction of all, leading to the most popular contract. But what Q J 10
is the least common contract?
Dealer: South; Vulnerable: North-South
South starts with five top tricks: one spade, two hearts, one diamond and one club.
If both black-suit finesses are working, that would get his winner total up to nine. Or The Bidding:
if both diamond honors are onside, that would also be good enough. But if a finesse
loses, the defenders will presumably establish West’s heart suit. Then, if West can SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
regain the lead, he might cash too many tricks for declarer. 1NT Pass 3NT All Pass
LEAD:
That suggests starting with the spade finesse, because the spade king is West’s Queen Hearts
only possible entry. But getting to the dummy for that finesse introduces other
complications.

Much simpler is to take two diamond finesses. The first loses to East’s jack and a
heart comes back, but South ducks that, wins the next heart, then — key play —
runs the club queen. (Agreed, if declarer deduces who has which kings, this isn’t
necessary, but it avoids guesswork.) East takes that trick and shifts to a spade, but
declarer wins with his ace, repeats the diamond finesse, and has nine tricks from one
spade, two hearts, four diamonds and two clubs.

The least common contract is five no-trump, which has all of the risk for no gain.
