A news anchor had stroke symptoms on air. Her colleagues jumped into action.
Julie Chin, a television news anchor in Oklahoma, was telling viewers about a local event when, all of a sudden, she was struggling to speak.
“I’m sorry,” she said after stumbling over her words. “Something is going on with me this morning, and I apologize to everybody.”
Fortunately her co-workers recognized that she was suffering a medical emergency and immediately called 911.
Dr. Neil Schwartz, director of the Young Stroke Program at the Stanford Stroke Center, said in an interview that Ms. Chin might have experienced a transient ischemic attack, which can mimic a stroke.
“When people have strokelike symptoms, we don’t want them to go back to sleep or wait until Monday to tell their doctor,” he said. “It’s better to err on the side of caution.”

Does Your Music Match Your Personality？
Of course, one person may enjoy many styles of music at different times and for different reasons. But scientists have noticed a few trends or connections between personalities and musical preferences. For example, people who love pop music tend to be extroverted, while people who enjoy country music are typically outgoing and traditional. While those examples may not be too surprising, other connections might be less expected. For instance, people who listen to heavy rock music actually tend to be gentle and introverted.
