You’re Never Too Old for a PSA
Sure, we all remember the “This is your brain on drugs” PSA from the eighties but have you checked out any of the latest PSAs featured on YouTube? If not, you should check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/usgovhhs.
The US Department of Health & Human Services has their own special YouTube page featuring videos submitted by everyday people about steps you can take to prevent the spread of the flu.
Of course the tips in these videos are all common sense and courtesy (wash your hands, cough into your sleeve, stay home if you’re sick, carry a flu kit) but the videos are still fun to watch and best yet you have until September 16th to vote on which one is your favorite. The winner will receive a $2500 cash prize.
While you’re bebopping around on the web test your “Readiness Quotient” on WhatsYourRQ.org and see how you rank against people in your area. Are you prepared in the event of an emergency? Do you have a first aid kit handy? How about a flashlight and backup batteries?
For old time’s sake:
