You’re Frying Eggs All Wrong.
We cracked the code on the Perfect Fried Egg, and you wouldn’t believe how simple it is.
I LOVE eggs
Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.
And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.
Things I did not know, but should.
This is a post that might save a life.
My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.
Whoa, relevant to both two of my pt jobs which both require first aid certification!
Found it deep in the Reddits, don’t know the source.
Ethnographic Writing Tip # 5 - Embrace Dialogue
“Learning how to write dialogue can liven up a manuscript,” the professor said.
“But many ethnographies use block quotes or straight transcriptions of their informants’ words,” the student said. “I want to be faithful to the original conversation.”
“Writing good dialogue can be more faithful to the original conversation. It incorporates the voice of the ethnographer and allows for the inclusion of specific details about vocal intonations or body language,” the professor replied, modulating her voice and crossing her arms across her chest.
The student shook his head. “But no one ever taught me how to write dialogue.”
“There are some great style guides out there, and it is worth learning how to do because well written dialogue infuses a text with stylistic diversity. Varying the lengths of your paragraphs will make your writing more reader- friendly, and the best way to create short paragraphs is to write dialogue.” The professor raised her eyebrows.
“Maybe I’ll give it a try.” The student nodded.
“Good.” The professor smiled. “I hope you do.”
