Traditionally, our family has
a party for the children who
delight in opening their gifts,
playing the “dreidel game” and
eating the traditional potato

Heart health advice
At our Kings of Long
Island event, we honored
Perry Frankel, who endorsed
the advise I’m sharing. It could
save your life!
Let’s say it’s 7:25 p.m. and
you’re going home (alone of
course) after an unusually hard
day on the job. You’re really tired,
upset and frustrated.
Suddenly, you start experiencing
severe pain in your chest that
starts to drag out into your arm
and up in to your jaw. You are only
a short distance from the hospital.
Unfortunately you don’t know
if you’ll be able to make it that far.
You have been trained in
CPR, but the guy who taught the
course did not tell you how to
perform it on yourself.
How do you survive a heart
attack while alone? Many people
are alone when they suffer a
heart attack. Without help, the
person whose heart is beating
improperly and who begins to feel
faint, has only about 10 seconds
left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can
help themselves by coughing
repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken
before each cough, and the cough
must be deep and prolonged, as
when producing sputum from
deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be
repeated about every two seconds
arrives, or until the heart is felt to
be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into
the lungs and coughing movements
keep the blood circulating. The
squeezing pressure on the heart
also helps it regain normal
rhythm. In this way, heart attack
victims can get to a hospital.
Tell as many other people as
possible about this. It could save
