LEFT HAND SHAKE

WHEN Colonel BADEN-POWELL entered the capital city of the Ashanti people in 1896 he was met by one of the Chiefs who came to him holding out his left hand. B.-P. held out his right in return but the Chief said: “No, in my country the bravest of the brave shake with the left hand.” So began the “left handshake” of the world-wide brotherhood of Scouts.

Once Lady B.P. explained that her husband adopted left hand shake on the basis of the following :
Two tribes were fighting each other. One day when the two tribes came opposite to each other, the leader of one
Tribe threw away the shield in his left hand and approached the other leader extending his left arm for
Shaking hand. Thus he showed his friendship with a free extended left hand by not defending himself.
Hence, extending the left arm means I am not your enemy; I am your friend.’

The Scout Handshake:-

An Pathfinder shakes hands with another Pathfinder with the left hand. The grandson of an Ashanti Chief who fought against B-P told this story of the origin of the Scout left handshake. When the Chief surrendered to B-P, the latter extended his right hand as a token of friendship. The Ashanti Chief however, insisted on shaking with the left hand, explaining, "the bravest of the brave shake hands with the left hand, because in order to do so, they must throw away their greatest protection, their shield." Thus Scouts and Pathfinders shake hands with the left hand as proof of their good faith and true friendliness.

GOOD TURN IS THE PERFORMANCE OF SOME EXTRA SERVICE OR THOUGHTFUL ACT, SOMETHING MORE THAN ORDINARY COURTESY OR KINDNESS CALLS FOR.A SCOUT SHOULD DO A GOOD TURN WITHOUT EXPECTATIONS OR REWARDS IN RETURN.HE SHOULD FEEL PRIVILAGED WHEN HE GETS A CHANCE OF BEING USEFUL TO OTHERS.

 

  

AS A SCOUT YOU ARE OBLIGED TO DO ATLEAST A GOOD TURN EVERY DAY.

P'S SIX EXERCISES:-

Here are some good exercises. It strengthens the toes and feet to do them barefooted.

1. For Head and Neck-Rub the head, face, and neck firmly over several times with the palms and fingers of both hands. Thumb the muscles of the neck and throat.

Brush your hair, clean your teeth, wash out your mouth and nose, drink a cup of cold water, and then go on with the following exercises.

The movements should all be done as slowly as possible.

2. For Chest-From upright position bend to the front, arms stretched downwards, with back of the hands together in front of the knees. Breathe out.

Raise the hands gradually over the head and lean back as far as possible, drawing a deep breath through the nose as you do-that is, drinking God's air into your lungs and blood. Lower the arms gradually to the sides, breathing out the word "Thanks" (to God) through the mouth.

In the pictures, an arrow means drawing in the breath through the nose;
an arrow with a circle means breathing out through the mouth.

Lastly, bend forward again, breathing out the last bit of breath in you, and saying the number of times you have done it, in order to keep count.

Repeat this exercise twelve times.

Remember while carrying it out that the object of the exercise is to develop shoulders, chest, heart, and breathing apparatus inside you.

Deep breathing is important for bringing fresh air into the lungs to be put into the blood, and for developing the size of the chest, but it should be done carefully, and not overdone. It is done by sucking air in through the nose until it swells out your ribs as far as possible, especially at the back; then, after a pause, you breathe out the air slowly and gradually through the mouth until you have not a scrap of air left in you, then after a pause draw in your breath again through the nose as before.

Singing develops simultaneously proper breathing and development of heart, lungs, chest, and throat, together with dramatic feeling in rendering the song.

3. For Stomach-Standing upright, send out both arms, fingers extended, straight to the front, then slowly swing round to the right from the hips without moving the feet, and point the right arm as far round behind you as you can, keeping both arms level with, or a little higher than, the shoulders. Then, after a pause, swing slowly round as far as you can to the left. Repeat this a dozen times.

This exercise is to move the inside organs such as liver and intestines, and help their work, as well as to strengthen the outside muscles round the ribs and stomach.

While carrying out this exercise, the breathing should be carefully regulated. Breathe in through the nose (not through the mouth), while pointing to the right rear; breathe out through the mouth as you come round and point to the left rear, and at the same time count aloud the number of the swing-or, what is better, thinking of it as part of your morning prayer with God, say aloud: "Bless Tim", "Bless Father", and any of your family or friends in turn.

When you have done this six times to the right, change the breathing to the other side: breathe in when pointing to the left rear, and breathe out to the right.

4. For Trunk-"Cone Exercise".-Standing at the "Alert", raise both hands as high as possible over the head, and link fingers. Lean backwards, then sway the arms very slowly round in the direction of a cone, so that the hands make a wide circle above and around

the body, the body turning from the hips, and leaning over to one side, then to the front, then to the other side, and then back. This is to exercise the muscles of the waist and stomach.

Repeat, say, six times to either hand. With the eyes you should be trying to see all that goes on behind you during the movement.

A meaning attached to this exercise, which you should think of while carrying it out, is this. The clasping hands mean that you are knit together with friends-that is, other Scouts-all round you as you sway round to the right, left, before, and behind you; in every direction you are bound to friends. Love and friendship are the gift of God, so when you are making the upward move you look to heaven and drink in the air and the good feeling, which you then breathe out to your comrades all round.

5. For Lower Body and Back of Legs-Like every one of the exercises, this is, at the same time, a breathing exercise by which the lungs and heart are developed, and the blood made strong and healthy. You simply stand up and reach as high as you can skywards, and backwards, and then bend forward and downward till your fingers touch your toes, without bending your knees.

Stand with the feet slightly apart, touch your head with both hands, and look up into the sky, leaning back as far as you can, as in Fig. 1 on page 186.

If you mingle prayer with your exercises, as I described to you

before, you can, while looking up in this way, say to God: "I am yours from top to toe", and drink in God's air (through your nose, not through the mouth). Then reach both hands upwards as far as possible (Fig. 2), breathe out the number of the turn that you are doing, and bend slowly forward and downward, knees stiff, till you reach your toes with your finger-tips (Fig. 3).

Tuck in the small of your back while on the downward bend.

Then, keeping arms and knees still stiff, gradually raise the body to the first position again, and repeat the exercise a dozen times.

The object of this exercise is, however, not to touch the toes, but to massage the stomach. If you find you cannot touch your toes do not force yourself to do it, and, more especially, do not jerk yourself or allow anyone else to force you down. The value of the exercise lies in the upward stroke as against the downward stroke.

6. For Legs, Feet and Toes-Stand barefooted, at the position of "Alert". Put the hands on the hips, stand on tip-toe, turn the knees outwards, and bend them slowly till you gradually sink down to a squatting position, keeping the heels off the ground the whole time.

Then gradually raise the body and come to the first position again.

Repeat this a dozen times.

The small of the back must be tucked in. The breath should be drawn in through the nose as the body rises, and counted out, through the mouth, as the body sinks. The weight of the body must be on the toes all the time, and the knees turned outwards to make you balance more easily. While performing the practice you should remember

that its object is to strengthen the thighs, calves, and toe-sinews, as well as to exercise the stomach, so if you practice it several times during the day, at any odd moments, it will do you all the more good.

And you can connect with this exercise, since it makes you alternately stand up and squat down, that whether you are standing or sitting, at work or resting, you will hold yourself together (as your hands on your hips are doing), and make yourself do what is right.

These exercises are not merely intended as a way of passing time, but really to help a fellow to grow big as well as to grow strong.

Square (or "Reef") Knot


Square Knot. Used for joining ropes of equal thickness. It is also the knot used for tying bandages, as it lies flat. This knot is also known as a "Reef Knot".  The working end is tied over the standing end, "right over left, left over right."

The Sheepshank 


The Sheepshank is used for shortening a rope without cutting it & to bridge the rope.

Clove Hitch


Clove Hitch. Used for securing a rope to a spar as a starter knot for lashings, and for securing a line to a fixed object.

Round Turn & Two Half Hitches


Round Turn and Two Half Hitches. Used for tying a rope to a tree, securing a boat or making a rope fast to a spar.

 

The Bowline


Bowline. One of the most useful knots that you can know how to tie.it is used to make a permanent loop at the end of t rope It has many other uses such as a rescue knot for hauling people up a cliff. You should practice tying this knot in the dark, and with only one hand.

The Timber Hitch

In addition to its use or starting a diagonal lashing, the Timber Hitch frequently is useful for hauling logs to the council fire, and for hauling spars and timbers for such pioneering jobs as bridge and tower building. It can be quickly adjusted, holds snugly under a strain, and is easily freed.

The Fisherman's Knot


The Fisherman's knot is used by fishermen to join strands of fishing line.it is used to tie two ends of the slippery rope It is one of the best knots for tying fine lines together, especially plastic or nylon.

SHEET BEND

 It is used two tie two ends of the rope of equal or unequal thickness.

 

Whipping: Common or Simple

Ropes are made up of a number of strands twisted together.  If the cut end is left un-whipped, the rope will fray or untwist, and loose strength. Being thrifty, Scouts, 'Whip' or bind the ends of ropes, this prevents fraying and prolongs the life of the rope.

 

 

 

Lay whipping twine on rope to form a loop (Diagram A). Bind twine around to trap loop (Diagram B). Continue with neat, tight bindings until the length of whipping is equal (about) 3 times the diameter of the rope (Diagram C). Working end of twine should then pass through the end of loop (C). Pull hard on the other end of the twine so that the working end is drawn and trapped under the binding, (Diagram D). Cut off loose ends, roll whipping under foot.

You should have a tight, neat whipping that will stop the end of the rope fraying.

Cuts and scratches are wounds -- openings in the skin. Clean even the smallest wound to remove germs that could cause infection.

Clean a wound by washing it with soap and water. Wash the wound away from the center. At home use the water right from the tap. On a hike, or at camp, use water from your canteen or a clear stream. Let the skin around the wound dry, then apply an adhesive bandage.

 

THE NORMAL BREATHING RATE OF AN ADULT IS 16 TO 18 TIMES PER MINUTE.

 

Check for breathing by placing your ear over the casualty's mouth and nose, and looking toward his chest:

(1) Look for rise and fall of the casualty's chest (Figure 2-6).

(2) Listen for sounds of breathing.

 

 

IF THE BREATHING STOPS CARRY THE FOLLOWING STEPS:

CHECK PULSE

 

Look for it on the carotid arteries, on either side of the throat for at least five seconds, before deciding if it is absent.

 

OPEN AIRWAY

 

Place your right hand on the victim's forehead, displacing it downwards, and with your left hand hold the victim's chin; bring it upwards and forward.

If head or neck injury is suspected

 

Place yourself behind the patient's head and with your hands cupped grab both jaws, pulling them upwards and displacing the mandible forward,avoiding bending or twisting the head.

CHECK AGAIN IF THERE IS BREATHING

CLEAN AIRWAY

 

Remove dentures, if there are any. Wrap your index finger in a gauze and remove, as if it were a hook, any foreign bodies. 
CHECK AGAIN IF THERE IS BREATHING

 

MOUTH TO MOUTH RESPIRATION

 

                      

 

 

Place your lips around the victim's lips and close the victim's nose keeping the airway open.

Blow air out twice into the victim's mouth. Notice how the chest lifts up. After each blow check that the chest moves downwards.

MOUTH TO NOSE RESPIRATION

THIS METHOD IS APPLICABLE FOR CHILDREN BELOW 1YR OF AGE.IN THIS METHOD BREATH IS GIVEN THROUGFH THE NOSE & THE MOUTH IS CLOSED.

SHOCK IS ACUTE DEPRESSIONOF BLOOD CIRCULATION IN THE BODY i.e. WHEN THE VITAL ORGANS ARE DEPRIVEDOF BLOOD.

When a person is injured or under great stress, the cardiovascular system may not be able to circulate enough blood to maintain normal bodily functions. This condition is called shock, and it may strike the victim of any accident or emotional trauma. Shock may develop soon after the injury has occurred, or it may not appear until minutes or even hours later. Sometimes shock is more dangerous than the injuries that brought it on, and in severe cases it can cause death.

 

TYPES:-

1.TRUE SHOCK- DUE TO BAD NEWS, ETC

2.NERVOUS SHOCK- DUE TO PROBLEM IN THE BODY.

TYPES OF NERVOUS SHOCK ARE STUPOR & COMMA.

 

How to Spot Shock

A person suffering from shock may be cold, may shiver, and may have cold, clammy pale skin in color. Breathing could be shallow, and there may be vomiting. On the other hand, there may be few obvious signs that shock is setting in.Pinch the casuality & see if he responds.

TREATMENT:-

Treat every accident victim for shock, even if there are no definite symptoms. Since shock is sometimes a delayed reaction to an accident, prompt treatment may prevent it from occurring at all. Be especially alert when rescuers arrive, since the relief a victim feels may give shock a chance to take hold.

Keep the person lying down. Unless there are head or spinal injuries, elevate the legs slightly to increase the flow of blood to the head. Put an insulated pad underneath his shoulder blades so that the tounge do not get chocked in the wind pipe.Wrap the person in a sleeping bag, jackets, or rescue blanket for warmth. Be sure you have correctly treated any wounds. If the victim vomits, turn the head to one side so they will not choke, and keep the air passage open.Loosen his tight clothing &give him strong stimulant like tea or coffee.Do not allow him to sleep.Obtain a doctor's care as soon as possible.

 

 

A TRIANGULAR BANDAGE IS MAINLY USED FOR BIG INJURIES LIKE FRACTURES, HEAD INJURIES,ETC.

 

ROLLER BANDAGE:

 

 

A ROLLER BANDAGE IS USED MAINLY FOR COVERING THE WOUNDS DURING MINOR CUTS AND SCRATCHES.ROLLER BANDDDAGES OF DIFFERENT SIZES ARE USED ACCORDING TO THE TYPE OF THE WOUNDS.
