    Four houses were ravaged by one of two Paterson fires that broke out within hours of one another, responders at the scenes said. Worse was the second blaze, on Marshall Street just off Slater Street, around 4 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 1. Firefighters arrived as flames jumped to the second house. Both became fully involved before what quickly became a four-alarmer spread to another residence -- and then to a fourth -- as they ramped up an exterior attack. All of the homes were occupied, responders at the scene said. It initially appeared there were no serious injuries, they said. No significant injuries were immediately reported in the first fire, either. That one ignited shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday in a three-story wood-frame house -- believed vacant -- on East 32nd Street near 12th Avenue. Fire officials sounded a second alarm almost immediately, followed by a third alarm barely 10 minutes later and, then, by the collapse. Firefighters had already mounted an exterior approach. They also doused neighboring buildings, which suffered fire damage. The fire was declared under control around 12:30...

    Just one alcoholic drink could be enough to raise the risk of suffering an irregular heartbeat. Around 1.4million people in the UK have a particular type of irregular heartbeat, which has the medical name atrial fibrillation. It is known that the condition can be triggered by too much alcohol, with many people suffering 'holiday heart syndrome' after over-indulging during Christmas or the summer holidays.  But now a study suggests just a small amount of alcohol can bring on an episode.

    Four educators in Broward County, Florida, died from COVID-19 in a span of 24 hours, as school officials continue to push back against Governor Ron DeSantis' ban on mask mandates in schools. At least three of the teachers who died were unvaccinated, CBS Miami reports.  "Within a 24-hour span, we had an assistant teacher pass away, a teacher at her school pass away, an elementary teacher pass away and another teacher at a high school," Broward Teachers Union president Anna Fusco told CBS Miami.  The news comes just days after Broward County's school board pushed back against DeSantis' order, voting 8 to 1 to require students to wear masks in school, arguing that the decision would keep students and teachers safe. Under the new rules, students and staff with legitimate concerns or health issues can opt out.  DeSantis' order, signed into effect on July 30, was framed as a way to "protect parents' freedom to choose," and threatened school officials who enforced mask mandates with a loss of funding and withheld pay.  The American Academy of Pediatrics and the...
    Four Florida teachers died from coronavirus over the course of 24 hours, the Broward Teachers Union confirmed in a statement. The Broward Teachers Union confirmed Thursday three teachers and a teacher’s assistant contracted the virus while on summer break, NBC Miami first reported. The union confirmed this information with the Daily Caller. At least three of the individuals were not vaccinated, according to the union. One of the teachers had reportedly been cleared by their doctor to get the vaccine. “Within a 24-hour span, we had an assistant teacher pass away, a teacher at her school pass away, an elementary teacher pass away and another teacher at a high school,” Broward Teacher Union President Anna Fusco said, according to CBS Miami. Another teacher assistant is also in the hospital fighting the virus, according to NBC Miami. “It really hits because we’ve been in this conversation about masking up in schools; our own elected governor acting like masks are not necessary,” Fusco said, according to NBC Miami. The school board voted earlier in the week to require masks in schools in defiance...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — More Chicago drivers are being terrorized by out-of-control carjackings, including at least four new attacks on the North and Near Northwest sides. As CBS 2’s Marissa Parra reported, police said late Wednesday afternoon that they are working to catch all the carjackers. They said one concern is an obvious uptick on carjackers preying on rideshare drivers. “They are preying on these Uber and Lyft systems, for obvious reasons. They may be using somebody else’s phone, meeting them at a specific corner,” said Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan. “We’re working with both Uber and Lyft to see what we can do to assist them.” The CPD said it is working with Uber and Lyft to see what information they can get from the app about the user accounts involved. Across the North Side of Chicago and also on the Near Northwest Side, there was a familiar call on police scanners Tuesday as four different carjackings transpired. The first happened in the 1400 block of North Dearborn Parkway in the Gold Coast. Police said a 57-year-old man...

Genome sequencing can help scientists monitor small changes in the virus at a national or international scale to understand how it is spreading and provide insight into how different cases are linked. “When a new ‘mystery’ coronavirus case is identified, every minute counts,” Ira Deveson, scientist at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, said in a report, prepared in collaboration with the University of New South Wales (UNSW). Genomic testing helps track the source of mystery cases, the ones whose source of infection remains unknown. But results often take more than 24 hours now. The...
