    The Northern Lights, usually seen around the Arctic Circle, could be visible in Pennsylvania, Iowa and Oregon tonight due to an intense geomagnetic storm.  The spectacular natural phenomenon is the result of a giant 'cannibal' solar eruption that is barrelling towards Earth at 1.8 million miles/hour. The first warning of the geomagnetic storm was issues on Monday by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) - initially declaring it a G2, but since upgrading it to a G3. Space Weather forecasters use the G-scale to describe the strength of a geomagnetic storm - caused by charged particles from the sun interacting with the Earth's magnetic field. G1 is the weakest and G5 is the most extreme. The increase to G3 is the result of stronger solar activity, with 17 eruptions blasting from a single sunspot on the sun, and two of them headed towards Earth.  An SWPC alert said: 'Aurora may be seen as low as Pennsylvania to Iowa to Oregon.'  The Northern Lights, usually seen around the Arctic Circle, could be visible in Pennsylvania, Iowa...

    BOSTON (CBS) – A respiratory illness that is commonly seen in young children in the winter is making an early appearance this year and some kids can get pretty sick from it. RSV, or respiratory syncytial virus, typically causes cold symptoms like runny nose and cough in older children but can cause wheezing and trouble breathing in babies. Hospitals and clinics, including mine, have been seeing more kids with RSV this summer, which is really unusual. Most recover fine at home, but some need to be hospitalized which poses a problem for regions of the country also seeing a surge of children hospitalized with COVID. Some believe children may be more vulnerable to viruses right now because they weren’t exposed to as many germs during the lockdown. ONE WEEK RECOVERY A new study finds that most kids recover from COVID-19 within a week. Researchers in the U.K. found while most kids recover within a week, about four-percent have symptoms lasting more than a month and almost two-percent of children with COVID-19 have symptoms that last eight weeks or longer.

    Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. Photos by Aaron Rapoport and Bill Tompkins / Getty Images A widely-circulated social media video which showed Mike Tyson hitting the pads in style in his mid-50s, left the former fighter in bed for a week. On the Joe Rogan Experience podcast last week, Tyson told the host that he could barely move because of all the pain he felt, and was crying behind-the-scenes. The training sessions have gotten slightly easier as his body has adjusted to the notion of returning to the ring for an exhibition bout on November 28, Tyson said. The former heavyweight world boxing champion takes on fellow all-time great Roy Jones Jr. in Carson, California. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    COVID-19 cases in U.S. nursing homes jumped nearly 80 per cent earlier this summer, driven by rampant spread across the South and much of the West, according to an industry report released Monday. Residents of long-term care facilities account for less than one per cent of the U.S. population, but more than 40 per cent of COVID-19 deaths, according to the COVID Tracking Project.  'The case numbers suggest the problem is far from solved,' said Tamara Konetzka, a research professor at the University of Chicago, who specializes in long-term care. She was not involved with the study.  Cases of COVID-19 soared in US nursing homes at the end of July as the pandemic spread Medics in Austin transport a nursing home resident with coronavirus symptoms on August 3 Many nursing homes did not allow relatives to visit those living inside, for fear of virus spread Donald Trump has allocated $5 billion to providing equipment for nursing homes The situation is a politically sensitive issue for President Donald Trump, who is scrambling to hold on to support...
