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.

Mixing US and European skills?
« on: January 13, 2019, 11:34:16 am »
I am "international".

What is the best way to mix US and European skills?

Case in point: How can I have both the Swiss NZZ news and the US Washington Post news?

Right now, the only option I see is to have (at last) two distinct Echo devices, each tied to a distinct account, and each tied to a different wake-up word - with all the pain that this entails.

(FWIW, I am well aware of digital rights management / DRM, differences in local laws, ...Still, this is Planet Earth.)

As far as I can make out, you can't.  I live in France, but don't speak much French, so I want to use English skills. I can't unless I fix my address as one in the UK - which I don't want to do for various and complicated reasons.

I noticed today that I can now access UK skills at my location in France.

This, for me, is a huge improvement.
