The man, the name and his maneuver

The Cincinnati surgeon who wrote the book on saving choking victims through his namesake Heimlich maneuver has now penned a new book: his memoir. Dr. Henry Heimlich hopes the book, Heimlich's Maneuvers: My Seventy Years of Lifesaving Innovation, will preserve the technique that has cleared obstructions from windpipes of choking victims around the world for four decades and made his name a household word. "I know the maneuver saves lives, and I want it to be used and remembered," the 94-year-old retired chest surgeon told The Associated Press this month. "I felt I had to have it down in print so the public will have the correct information."

    Country music has a dude problem.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
