New York City's worst fire disaster in more than 30 years killed nine children and ten adults, and left dozens more critically injured on Sunday. The five-alarm blaze erupted shortly before 11 am on the third floor of a 19-story building at 333 East 181st Street in the Bronx. 'Numerous' fatalities are anticipated, FDNY commissioner Dan Nigro said in a press conference. 'We didn't know what to do. We looked out the windows and saw all the dead bodies they were taking with the blankets,' Cristal Diaz, who lives in the fifth floor of the building, told the New York Post. Diaz's niece, 13-year-old Alanny, reportedly saw 'moms fainting at the sight of their kids dying.' The fire at the Twin Parks North West complex quickly progressed.

Woman, 26, who accuses brother-in-law ex Michigan House Speaker, 33, of years-long rape starting when she was 15 admits SHE often initiated contact with him but claims it was because he 'brainwashed her'
The sister-in-law accusing Michigan's former House Speaker of repeatedly raping her for more than a decade admits she often initiated contact with him - but says she only did so because she was 'brainwashed' and 'groomed' by him. Rebekah Chatfield, 26, came forward last week to detail her ordeal after filing the criminal complaint against Lee Chatfield last month. In the criminal filing, she accused Michigan's youngest House speaker in more than a century of sexually assaulting her multiple times while she attended Northern Michigan Christian Academy, which was run by his family. Rebekah - who claims the abuse began when she was 15 - conceded in an interview with Bridge Michigan that she at times reached out to Chatfield, but claimed she was under his spell during the time. 'It was never consensual, because it started when I was a minor - the brainwashing, the mentality, the manipulation, the psychological, the emotional - he groomed me into being who he wanted me to be,' she told the outlet. Chatfield, 33, was elected in 2014 and served as the state's House Speaker in 2019. The following year, he headed the delegation of seven Michigan GOP leaders who met with then-president Donald Trump at the White House as he tried to overturn Democrat Joe Biden's win in the state.

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a former member of President Joe Biden's Transition COVID Advisory Board, said on Sunday he expects COVID will become 'endemic' like the flu later this year, even as the United Stats recorded 900,832 new cases on Friday with 2,615 new deaths as the Omicron variant continues to spread rapidly throughout the United States. As a result, 5 million servicemembers throughout the country have called in sick with COVID, leaving police and fire departments short-handed, and patients being turned away from their local hospitals.
'3,500 kids are in hospital, NOT 100,000': CDC Director Wallensky corrects liberal Justice Sotomayor's wildly false claim that 'over 100,000 children are seriously ill with COVID, many on ventilators'
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky contradicted Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor's incorrect claim that there are 100,000 pediatric COVID hospitalizations on Sunday. Justice Sotomayor, appointed by former president Obama, exaggerated the number of severe COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations among children as she attempted to convince conservatives Supreme Court justices that President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for businesses should be enforced. On Sunday, Walensky contradicted Sotomayor's claims during a segment of Fox News Sunday. 'The number is not 100,000 It's roughly 3500 in hospitals now?' asked host Bret Baier. 'Yes. In fact, what I will say is, while pediatric hospitalizations are rising, they're still about 15 fold less than hospitalizations of our older age or age demographic,' Walinsky answered.
Ritzy San Francisco condo tower is now leaning 26 INCHES with tilt set to progress three inches a year after attempts to stabilize it make it WORSE
Millennium Tower has snuck tilted an additional four inches since this summer after construction work cause it to tilt even more. The San Francisco, which opened in 2009, has been sinking since its construction and has already sunk 17 to 18 inches and is leaning 26 inches. It was originally estimated to sink 5.5 inches by 2028. Structural engineer Ronald O. Hamburger is now suggesting the 52 support beams that are meant to be installed be adjusted to just 18 and will be anchored to bedrock. The 58-story building is home to many well-named people, such as former 49er Joe Montana and Giants outfielder Hunter Pence. The lavish estate sells units for millions of dollars.
Thirty-four stranded ice fisherman RESCUED as they floated into Green Bay after huge chunk broke off from shoreline
Thirty-four people were rescued from a floating chunk of ice that broke away from the Green Bay shoreline on Saturday morning. The Brown County Sheriff's office said the ice floated about three-quarters of a mile out and continued to float away from shore during the rescue, cracking and rapidly deteriorating as the open water pounded at its edges. The rescue took 90 minutes to complete and no injuries were reported. The sheriff's office suspects the separation was caused by a barge traveling through the bay. A fisherman who was stranded on the chunk said the breaking of the ice sounded like 'somebody fired a gun'. Authorities are hoping the rescue, which was the largest in department history, will serve as a reminder that it is important to always maintain awareness of your surroundings when out on the ice.
Survivor Andréia Mendonça (left) recalled how holidaymakers were taking pictures at the waterfalls in southeast Brazil when part of the canyon collapsed (right, inset), killing at least ten people and seriously injuring nine. Mendonça told how she had even told the driver of their boat that she could see some pebbles falling, but he said it 'was nothing'. The collapse took place near a picturesque waterfall in a canyon located near the popular tourist village of Capitolio, in the southeast of Brazil, on Saturday. Rescuers recovered three more bodies from the lake on Sunday, raising the death toll to 10 in the disaster that injured more than 32 tourists. Dramatic footage captured the moment a huge slice of the rock wall broke off from the canyon on Furnas Lake and began to slowly fall forward on top of two tourist boats. Passengers can be heard screaming as the cliffside crashed directly on one of the boats, engulfing the other nearby ship and sending waves and debris flying to the other vessels touring the area.

Kate Middleton is now known for her radiant natural beauty, dewy skin, and perfect blow-dries, it's not always been this way.

The creature (bottom right), dubbed 'the Rutland Sea Dragon', is some 33 feet (10 m) long and is the first of its species, Temnodontosaurus trigonodon, to ever be found in the UK.

Initially tolerated by the Nazis, Freemasons became the subject of regime conspiracy theories in the 1930s, seen as liberal intellectuals whose secretive circles could become centers of opposition.

Millions of us are on HRT little knowing that when we stop, the hot flashes, brain fog and emotional turmoil can return - with a vengeance. Here three women break the taboo to reveal the hell of the 'second menopause'
Helen Carroll speaks to three British women breaking the taboo to reveal the hell of 'second menopause; Jill Slater, 78, (pictured right) Rae Redford, 59 (pictured left), and Rosemarie Webster, 82. Chatting with friends in a cafe, Jill Slater suddenly felt an all-too-familiar sensation of heat rising through her body and, sweating and red-faced, had to excuse herself from the table, fan in hand, to step outside. Her companions were baffled as she told them she was experiencing a hot flush, having themselves waved goodbye to such menopausal symptoms a couple of decades earlier. Having been on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for 22 years, Jill believed 'the change', and all the misery it brought with it, was well and truly behind her. But now her menopausal symptoms, including sweats, low mood and thinning hair, were back with a vengeance. She's one of millions of British women who went on HRT when their menopause first hit in their late 40s or early 50s, little realising that if they came off it later in life, they'd experience menopause symptoms while withdrawing from it, as though having a 'second menopause'.
