When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Got Echo for Christmas, sits on tiled end table. I have trouble understanding Alexa when she is speaking. I am curious if there is an ideal surface (it appears that the speakers point down so I thought maybe the surface made a difference). Music is fine as far as I'm concerned. Enjoy using echo very much. Just hard to understand.

Yep, it is not a hi-fi device, for sure, kind of the quality of a pretty good clock radio.  Mine is also on an end table with a glass top.  Hard surfaces are good for reflecting sound which is needed with this device.  But, not too reflective, so keep it somewhat open all around and not jammed in a back corner near two walls. Amazon Echo website has placement tips, so see if you can find that info.
