    A Georgia woman who died in police custody last week after officers were called to help her in the midst of a mental health episode left behind 3-year-old twins who still don’t know they lost their mother, family members told The Daily Beast. Brianna Marie Grier, 28, was arrested by Hancock County Sheriff’s Office deputies at her parent’s home last week, but she died before they even got her to the sheriff’s office to book her. And the official line from the sheriff’s office—that Grier “fell out” of a patrol car after kicking open the door—only leaves more questions for her parents and siblings. She was left brain dead, and eventually taken off intubation. Patrol cars are “ALWAYS supposed to be locked from the inside,” criminal justice expert Geoffrey Alpert told NBC News. Neither the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office nor Sheriff Terrell Primus immediately responded to requests for comment. According to family, Grier—usually a smart, loving family member who loved to dance, sing, eat at cookouts and spend time with her daughters—battled increasingly severe mental health issues within the last...

    By Madeline Holcombe, CNN (CNN) — Are dates, details and daily tasks feeling a bit fuzzy these past couple of years? It’s not just you, experts say. It’s not laziness or losing your sharpness — being in a global pandemic for the last two years is actually making it harder for our brains to make and recall memories, said Amir-Homayoun Javadi, a senior lecturer in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience at the University of Kent in the United Kingdom. “We tend to habituate and get used to situations,” said Javadi, who is also the chief executive officer of Active-Class, a learning management system. “The situation for the past two years has pushed us to not do much and not to plan.” And getting too used to life in this time can mean cognitive damage, memory disruption and trouble maintaining attention, he added. Contrary to how some people might imagine it, capturing a memory isn’t like taking a picture of a moment. It can often be impacted by the context of the situation, Michael Yassa, a professor of neurobiology, told...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some residents at a Staten Island housing complex say they are facing another holiday without gas for cooking unless the city steps in. Toi Winfield, a mother of three, has lived at the Stapleton Houses on Staten Island for eight years, but she says the past eight months have been “ridiculous.” READ MORE: Corrections Officers' Union Sues Mayor De Blasio Over Vaccine Mandate“We’ve been dealing with hot plates and slow cookers,’ Winfield told CBS2’s Cory James. That’s because she has no gas. “But y’all want your rent, though,” she said. Winfield says NYCHA gave residents electrical cooking appliances to help — two countertop devices this working mom says are not enough. “It’s slow. You got to start in the morning … Watch it all day,” she said. According to city officials, mandatory gas pipe inspections shut off service to 96 units.

Terence Darrell Kelly, 36, was charged with the four-year-old disappearance from the remote Blowholes campsite on November 4, after she had been missing 18 days. A team of detectives landed in Carnarvon in the northwest of the state from Perth on Monday and are expected to remain in town for at least another week as forensic specialists continue to scour the alleged abductor's home for evidence someone else could have been there.

    (CNN)The Pacific Northwest heat wave in late June was a mass casualty event, officials said. Hundreds of people likely died in the multi-day, record-breaking heat, and the death toll continues to rise. At least 83 people died from heat-related illness in Oregon, and officials are investigating another 32 deaths. In Washington, at least 78 people died. Across the border in British Columbia, officials counted nearly 800 deaths from June 25 to July 1 -- 500 more than normal for that time period and which they believe are tied to the heat, according to Lisa Lapointe, the chief coroner for the province. In reality, it could be months before we know the final toll.Despite the staggering statistics, there was no obvious sense of urgency around the tragedy as it played out -- nothing similar to a hurricane making landfall, a gunman opening fire in a night club or a wildfire destroying a town. They were hundreds of quiet deaths from an invisible disaster: unprecedented heat, which dozens of scientists concluded was "virtually impossible" without climate change.Scientists and psychologists told CNN the...

    by Ronald D. Fricker Jr., Virginia Tech The number of deaths in the United States through July 2020 is 8% to 12% higher than it would have been if the coronavirus pandemic had never happened. That’s at least 164,937 deaths above the number expected for the first seven months of the year – 16,183 more than the number attributed to COVID-19 thus far for that period – and it could be as high as 204,691. Tracking deaths When someone dies, the death certificate records an immediate cause of death, along with up to three underlying conditions that “initiated the events resulting in death.” The certificate is filed with the local health department, and the details are reported to the National Center for Health Statistics. As part of the National Vital Statistics System, the NCHS then uses this information in various ways, such as tabulating the leading causes of death in the United States – currently heart disease, followed by cancer. Sometime this fall, COVID-19 will likely become the third-largest cause of death for 2020. Projecting from the past To calculate...

    New York (CNN Business)At the end of every video call meeting, whether it's a WebEx with colleagues, or a Zoom catch up with friends, I find myself waving goodbye. And everyone else is waving too.A cursory search of Twitter found I wasn't alone. "Why do I feel compelled to WAVE at the end of Zoom calls? I have literally never walked out of a meeting room WAVING," tweeted one person, garnering over 16,000 likes. "I CANNOT STOP WAVING WHEN I END A ZOOM CALL SOMEONE HELP ME," said another. One Twitter user even wrote a song about it.So, why did we all start waving? Experts have several explanations. As video calling becomes a default way of communicating during the pandemic, people adjust and adapt their behaviors accordingly -- plus they're craving more of a human connection. "This personal touch is missing," said Laura Dudley, an associate clinical professor at Northeastern University and expert in behavior analysis and body language. "We're hungering for that human interaction, that friendliness, so we're starting to do things like waving to say goodbye. It feels...
