    It is, without doubt, a story of hope. Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at just 54, Phil Gutis was facing a bleak prognosis that will be all too familiar to many – the whittling away of memories, the loss of speech then movement, and ultimately an early death. But enrolled on a clinical trial for a new dementia drug and something almost inconceivable occurred – ‘The fog began to lift,’ says the retired journalist. Despite the fact that dementia is universally accepted to be incurable and always progressive, the treatment – a monthly injection of the medication aducanumab – has not simply slowed Phil’s illness, or held it at bay, as was initially hoped. Six years after his initial diagnosis, the former New York Times reporter seems to be getting better. Phil now ‘performs well’ in memory tests, and his doctors say he barely seems to have dementia at all. While he had been forced to give up writing, he is now no longer lost for words and has taken up part-time work transcribing court reports for local journalists. He’d given up...
    "It was strange," she later shared with WTTG. "As I’m lying there I’m thinking to myself this actually did happen. I didn’t even know what to think about at that point. It didn’t seem real as it was happening." Goodyear — who's been a crossing guard for 14 years — added to the station that "I’m a parent as well, and it’s like I just want to make sure all these children are safe, and it didn’t matter if I was struck or not." After leaving the hospital, Goodyear went back to the school to check on the student she rescued from harm's way but was told she was shaken up and went back home to be with her family, WTTG said So the corporal thought she would stop by the student's house to check on her, the station said. "She came down the stairs, saw me standing there, and as she was walking toward the door she was getting teary-eyed, and you could see it, and when she got teary-eyed, then her dad...
    “I’m thankful for that young man who threw the rope,” Talavera told the station. “I would have been in there longer, she would have been in there longer. I don’t know what would have happened.” Not only was the child not breathing at the time, she also was reportedly without a pulse. First responders quickly arrived on the scene and began CPR on the unconscious child. Arapahoe County Sheriff's Deputy Justin Dillard said that seeing the child begin to breathe was a "massive relief." The unnamed child was taken to a local hospital for treatment and was ultimately transferred to Denver Health and admitted in serious condition. She is expected to recover. South Metro Fire Engineer Corey Sutton lauded Talavera's bravery. "I have four boys, and what she did was amazing," Sutton said, according to KUSA. "We were back at the fire station talking about how brave she was, how great the officers did. I hope that if this happened to one of mine, somebody like her was close by." Local officials say that it's important...
    ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A 6-year-old girl is in serious condition but expected to survive after accidentally falling into a frozen pond over the weekend. The girl is one of three children who were submerged in the icy water. The situation could have been much worse if a good Samaritan hadn’t rushed to help when she saw the incident unfold before her eyes. Dusti Talavera (credit: CBS) “I was looking out my window, and saw the kids to fall in,” said Dusti Talavera, who lives at the Addison at Cherry Creek apartments. “Before I realized it, I was on the pond pulling the two kids out, and that’s when I fell in the pond for the third kid.” She recalled her story at the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office on Monday afternoon in a press conference. Talavera told CBS4’s Mekialaya White she acted immediately, not hesitating to put on her shoes and run outside to help the kids. She attempted to rescue them in water 15-feet deep.

    A renowned doctor known for updating his Twitter followers on the pandemic admitted that his 'parental emotion' caused him to panic when his 28-year-old son got COVID last week, though the odds of a vaccinated young person dying are 'near-zero.' Dr. Bob Wachter, the chair of the department of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, shared his journey of watching his son fall ill with the coronavirus and recover in a series of 25 tweets on Saturday. He said his triple-vaccinated son is 'generally healthy but overweight, placing him in a moderately high-risk group.'   When he caught COVID after watching a movie with a friend, Dr. Wachter described checking in on him frequently, getting worried when a reply came slowly, and even letting himself into his home to find him 'sleeping...and breathing.' COVID cases in San Francisco skyrocketed in December due to the more contagious Omicron variant, reaching a pandemic high of 1,218 new daily cases earlier this month. Eighty-one percent of residents in the city are vaccinated. Dr. Bob Wachter gave a play-by-play of finding out his son...
    A dog in New Hampshire was being hailed as a real-life 'Lassie' Tuesday after leading police to the scene of a serious car crash that left her owner injured and suffering from hypothermia. The one-year-old dog, a breed known as a Shiloh Shepherd called Tinsley, ran down where Interstates 89 and 91 meet, in Hartford, on the New Hampshire border with Vermont late Monday, prompting motorists to alert the highway patrol. Cops arrived at the scene and initially mistook Tinsley for a stray. But when they tried to catch her, she kept running and led them into Vermont, where the officers spotted a gap in the guard rail and discovered a badly damaged pickup truck that had rolled over. Two people, including Tinsley's owner, Cam Laundry, 31, had been thrown from the vehicle and were already suffering from the onset of hypothermia. The passenger was Justin Connors, 40, who is described as 'fine,' having escaped with minor injuries.   Tinsley, a one-year-old Shiloh Shephard, ran to New Hampshire State Police on Monday to bring them where her owner and another passenger...
    JAKE PAUL rematching with Tyron Woodley is a 'gangster move' but an heroic 'mistake'. That's the claim of UFC legend Chael Sonnen after YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul called in Woodley to replace Tommy Fury on December 18. 3Unbeaten Jake Paul, right, beat UFC specialist Tyron Woodley on a split decision in their first meeting in the boxing ring 3Chael Sonnen reckons Jake Paul is acting like a 'real fighter' by taking the 'very big risk' of meeting Tyron Woodley again Tyson Fury's unbeaten half-brother Tommy would have been a huge step up for Paul but pulled out of next week's bout with a reported rib injury and chest infection. Now former UFC welterweight champ Woodley, 39, is targeting revenge against his American rival at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida. But Sonnen believes Paul is taking a 'very big risk' by again facing the only one of his four victims who had previous professional boxing experience. Paul, 24, won their first fight on a split decision four months ago. And asked on The MMA Hour if Paul was making a mistake, Sonnen replied: "I think it...

    Regeneron Pharmaceuticals plans to ask the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow its COVID-19 monoclonal antibody cocktail to be used as a preventative treatment.  It comes after data from a Phase III clinical trial, run together with the National Institutes of Health, found the drug reduced the risk of asymptomatic coronavirus  patients developing symptoms by 76 percent on the third day. The treatment is a mixture of drugs casirivimab and imdevimab, and was developed by the New York City-based company in partnership with pharmaceutical firm Roche. Known as REGEN-COV, the cocktail imitates antibodies that the body generates when fighting the virus in order to boost the immune system.   The cocktail was given to former President Donald Trump when he was infected with COVID-19 in October 2020, and which he hailed as 'key' to his speedy recovery. The antibody treatment has already been authorized by the FDA to treat mild to moderate cases of COVID-19 and pediatric patients 12 years or older at high risk of severe disease. New trial showed the Regeneron's antibody cocktail reduced the overall risk...

    COLONIA DEL SACRAMENTO, Uruguay—The Uruguayan government was hailed as one of the world’s best COVID-19 crisis handlers. Despite being located between two of the countries most affected by the pandemic—Argentina and Brazil where the cases never seem to end—Uruguay had one of the smallest outbreaks in the region all while the authorities avoided a mandatory quarantine. In September, the British Medical Journal published an article under the headline: “Uruguay Is Winning Against COVID-19.” The miracle did not last forever. A few months later, cases are increasing by the hundreds every day and experts fear that it will not be long before Uruguay, which once felt prepared, finds that the pandemic is out-of-control. On March 13, when the first four cases of COVID-19 were detected in the country, the Uruguayan government assured the population that a mandatory quarantine would not be used in Uruguay. They said it would be the responsibility of the population to comply with the confinement which, although recommended, was never compulsory. Measures were adopted by the government to encourage people to stay at home, such as closing...

    MUNICH — A few months can make a world of difference during a pandemic. After being lauded for its response to Covid-19 after Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government flattened the curve this spring, Germany is now grappling with more than 10,000 daily coronavirus infections, the most it has seen since the outbreak started, and admissions to hospital intensive care units have doubled in the last two weeks. In response, the country is betting on a different, more local approach to the crisis. “We need to do everything now so that the virus will not spread uncontrollably. Every day counts now,” Merkel, a physicist by training, said in a video released over the weekend in which she asked people to cut back on nonessential travel and gatherings outside of their family circle. In stark contrast to strict contact bans in the spring, it was an appeal to voluntarily limit social interactions.
