    Yesterday we learned of a Long Island woman who was arrested for illegally vaccinating a teenager in her home without the prior consent of the teen’s parents. Making the story even stranger was the fact that the woman, Laura Russo, was not a medical professional of any sort and she was not qualified to perform such a medical procedure. Initially, little was known about either the woman or the student, but now a few more details are emerging. Perhaps the most interesting one is that the woman, who has been charged with a Class E felony, is a teacher at...

    While the Biden administration has once again extended the pause on student loan repayments, some progressives have said that unless more is done, it could cost Democrats in the midterms in 2022. The progressive wing of the Democratic Party is sounding the alarm over potentially losing voters and subsequent races if the campaign promise of canceling student loan debt goes unfulfilled by the Biden-Harris administration. Before the pause was extended, several prominent Democrats voiced their concerns about payments starting again and how it could cost them the midterms. Natalia Abrams, president of the Student Debt Crisis Center, a nonprofit focused...

Rahbar, who had just gotten some food, was sent airborne when he was hit in the south Los Angeles roadway by a Dodge Challenger Hellcat, whose driver had been racing a man in an Infiniti G37, LAPD South Traffic Division Det. Ryan Moreno told the newspaper.

    A 22-year-old University of New Hampshire student was found dead Sunday afternoon in a marshy area near the campus after he was reported missing a day earlier, authorities said. Vincenzo Lirosi disappeared after a night of drinking, police said, and he was last seen early Saturday morning shortly after leaving a fraternity party where he reportedly got into a fight, a pal of his, Jordan Blanchard, told WMUR-TV. “It’s pretty uncharacteristic of him,” Blanchard told the news station. “This is his first fight ever.”

    Following research about college students from before COVID-19 with a survey at the pandemic's Year I mark, an international team of scientists detected no improvement in the students' mental well-being even after the introduction of vaccines and the easing of social distancing methods, let alone a return to campuses in many instances. In fact, the researchers in spring 2021 found marked declines in both physical and emotional health—students sustained a 35% decline in their number of daily steps and a 36% increase in the number at risk of clinical depression, or roughly half of the total students surveyed. The scientists,...

    A Penn State student and former high school cheerleader fell 11 stories to her death in a trash chute — after allegedly having a bad reaction to a “smoke.” The body of 19-year-old Justine Gross of Summit, NJ, was discovered last week when a trash hauler emptied its load at a Pennsylvania landfill, her mother told on Thursday. Francoise Gross said her daughter, a communications sophomore at the school in State College, Pa., ended up plunging from the chute into a dumpster where she lived at the Beaver Terrace Apartments about a block from campus. The shattered mom said...

    A Pennsylvania school bus aide is charged with stabbing a nurse at the school and holding a 14-year-old student hostage at knifepoint in a bizarre burst of violence. Police said the incident unfolded shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday during morning drop-off at the Watson Institute, a school for special-needs students in Allegheny County. Rochelle Pinkle, an aide at the Sewickley school, allegedly stabbed the school nurse twice in the back, then grabbed the student and led him at knifepoint back inside her bus, WTAE-TV said. She released the teen after police arrived but struggled with the cops and had to...

    Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin demanded that Loudoun County Superintendent Scott Ziegler and the school board resign following a bombshell email this week that showed the board was made aware on May 28 that a female student reported she had been sexually assaulted by a male student in a girl's bathroom. The email was sent to school board members about a month before Ziegler said at a board meeting that he had no record of assaults in the school district's bathrooms. Youngkin told Fox News on Saturday that the email, which was first reported by WTOP, "simply confirms what we...

    Students and parents all over Douglas County, Colorado took to the streets Wednesday morning to protest a countywide school mask mandate. The organized walkout reportedly occurred around 9:30 a.m., just two days after the county's health department issued a mask order requiring all staff and students from preschool to 12th grade to wear masks (via The Denver Channel). Some of the loudest voices were heard at Thunder Ridge High School. "These people agree with me. They hate masks, and I do too," said Thunder Ridge student Cole Bradley of the students behind him. "I believe that masks, they’ve been going...

    The U.S. Department of Education announced Thursday it will cancel $1.1 billion in student debt for 115,000 borrowers. The relief will go to those who attended ITT Technical Institute, a for-profit school that is now defunct. The school is accused of misrepresenting itself and steering students into pricey private loans. These borrowers didn’t finish their degrees and left the school after March 31, 2008.

    The Biden administration announced Thursday it will automatically erase student loan debt for more than 300,000 Americans with severe disabilities that leave them unable to earn significant incomes. The move will wipe out more than $5.8 billion in debt, according to the Education Department, and it marks the start of a broader overhaul of a program that has been criticized for having overly burdensome rules. “We’ve heard loud and clear from borrowers with disabilities and advocates about the need for this change and we are excited to follow through on it,” Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said in a statement. The...

    A daredevil UK student has come under fire for traveling to Afghanistan last week looking for “risk” — forcing the British Army to evacuate him in the midst of the country’s deadly chaos. Miles Routledge, 21, told the Spectator that he picked the troubled nation to travel to after doing a Google search for “most dangerous countries to visit” — arriving Friday even though he was aware of the Taliban’s insurgency. “I like risk,” the student from Birmingham told the Times of London, saying he had previously been to the site of the 1986 Russian nuclear disaster in Chernobyl and...

    The road to justice can sometimes be long, winding, and tedious, but we can take comfort knowing that sometimes bad things do happen deservedly to bad people. Think of the hanging of outlaws in the Old West or hot wax being poured on Dr. Phibes. Sometimes, big, dirtbag corporations run by corrupt ethical crooks get their comeuppance, or at the very least a judge rules that said corporation has to face said comeuppance in a court of law. One such trial (hopefully soon to be trials) I’m looking forward to with relish is the reckoning faced by the unbelievably slimy...

This phenomenon may enable us to see multiple versions of the same thing. While this has been known for decades, only now do we have an exact, mathematical expression, thanks to Albert Sneppen, student at the Niels Bohr Institute. The result, which even is more useful in realistic black holes, has just been published in the journal Scientific Reports. A disk of glowing gas swirls into the...

    A University of Chicago student was killed in a freak tragedy when a stray bullet ripped through his subway-car window during the commute home from his summer internship, police and loved ones say. Max Solomon Lewis, a 20-year-old junior from Denver, Colo., succumbed Sunday morning to injuries he suffered from the slug that pierced a window of the train at the 51st Street Green Line station, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “It’s a senseless tragedy for so many reasons,” classmate Zach Cogan told the outlet. Lewis, who was pursuing a double major in economics and computer science, had snagged a competitive...

    YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – While many traditional home buyers are being squeezed out of the market by inflated real estate prices and builders are working to keep up with demand amongst the shortage of skilled labor and supplies, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is making it easier for buyers with a load of student debt to purchase their first home. Student debt has risen to historic levels over the past 20 years, putting those who should typically be able to afford a home out of the market completely. Now, the FHA is relaxing the way it assesses student-loan debt when...

    Democratic lawmakers have been keeping the pressure on President Joe Biden to cancel $50,000 in student debt per borrower. Biden just told a top Democrat to keep the calls coming. Student Debt Crisis, an advocacy organization, led an event on Wednesday to urge Biden to take action on the $1.7 trillion student-debt crisis. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren - two leading lawmakers on the issue of debt cancellation - joined the event and said they had met with Biden on the issue and told him they'd be unrelenting in their push to get student debt...

The 11th-grade student at Columbia High School died at the scene nearly an hour later, the agency said. The other male student, whose age was not immediately known, was shot in the leg and treated at a nearby hospital, cops said
