    THIS is the shocking moment a mum saves her four children from certain death by throwing them from the third floor of a burning building. Quick-thinking locals stretched out a blanket as a makeshift safety net to catch the kids as they plummeted from a window of a five-storey apartment block in Istanbul, Turkey. 4The mum dropped her kids one-by-one from the burning flatCredit: Daily Sabah 4Amazingly the family escaped without serious injury In a startling video filmed from the street below, the mother is seen dropping each child from the window as a cloud of black smoke pours through the opening.

    MORRIS PARK, Bronx (WABC) -- Investigators looking into the cause of a Bronx building explosion that left at least 10 people, including children, injured say unpermitted illegal gas and water plumbing work was discovered in a laundry room set up on the first floor.Inspectors are not yet sure if this improper piping caused the explosion inside the Paulding Avenue building, and a multi agency city investigation is ongoing.Forensic engineers determined the building is structurally stable and not in imminent danger of collapse, but damage to the front wall of the building was observed as well as severe damage to the interior finishes.As a result, a full vacate order was issued and the owner ordered to install a fence around the building.ALSO READ | Young women dress as 'grannies' in apparent attempt to get COVID-19 vaccineEMBED More News Videos Young women in Florida arrived at a vaccination site "dressed up as...
    A massive fire that ripped through late actor Paul Newman’s camp for seriously ill children in Connecticut Friday destroyed two buildings and it appeared no one was injured, authorities said. The blaze broke out at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford shortly before 5 p.m., fire officials said. Firefighters responded to camp through an automatic fire alarm and calls about smoke. When they arrived, the camp’s main building was on fire. That building and a smaller one next to it were destroyed, according to NBC Connecticut.

But what type of tinker toys are right for your child? Here are the top 21 best building toys for kids:
    NORTH LAWNDALE — Moms at a West Side affordable housing complex say they have been forced to quit their jobs after a new building policy made it impossible to get in-home child care while they are at work. In December, Interfaith Housing Development Corporation banned tenants from having guests at Independence House, a 25-unit apartment complex at 810 S. Independence Blvd. The ban includes child care workers and family members, tenants said. The restrictions are meant to protect residents from exposure to coronavirus and to reduce crime and drug activity, said Harriette Mimms, Interfaith’s director of asset management. Mimms said the policy is flexible and temporary — but tenants contend the ban has already had drastic consequences. “It made me miss out on a job opportunity because I don’t have anyone to watch my kids,” tenant Jeri Freeman said. Freeman was preparing to start a job as a home...
    ROGERS PARK — A portion of the defunct St. Jerome School building is getting a second life as the headquarters of a local — and growing — refugee education nonprofit. Anticipating an increase in demand for its services, Madonna Mission has moved from a two-room storefront at 7110 N. Sheridan Road to the former school building at 1706 W. Morse Ave. Madonna Mission, which provides tutoring and other programs for refugee adults and children, has taken over three classrooms and office space in the St. Jerome School building. The group moved to its new building Dec. 1. Moving to the school building gives Madonna Mission more space to expand its services and puts the nonprofit into a setting more fit for educational purposes, Executive Director Peggy Forbes said. “We’ve been searching a long time for a new space because we’ve had to turn people away,” Forbes...

    At a grocery store inside of Linda Tutt High School in Sanger, Texas, you don’t pay with money but good deeds, such as cleaning around the school building. “It’s not something that you see every day in a school building,” school principal Anthony Love said. “I think a big part of it is about empowering our students because many of them come from low socioeconomic families that need just a little extr a support with food.” The school, located about 60 miles northwest of Dallas, partnered with local nonprofits to help kids, who have been made increasingly food insecure because of the coronavirus pandemic. The store is open Monday through Wednesday for students and staff within the school district. “It’s a way for students to earn the ability to shop for their families,” Love added. “Through hard work you can earn points for positive office referrals. You can earn...
    AUBURN (CBS13) — An Auburn volunteer group wants to bring the classroom home by building free desks for students. The Auburn Host Lions Club is working with local education officials to find kids who need a place to work. It takes them a little less than an hour to build each desk. They say Home Depot saves them a lot of time by cutting the desktops for them. The plan is to try and make learning at home a little better for kids who don’t get to see their friends at school. “I’m hoping that we’re gonna get a lot of responses from this and just make one kid happy at a time,” Randy Maki, president of the Auburn Host Lions Club, said. If your child needs a desk, you can reach out to the Placer County Office of Education in Auburn.  More from CBS Sacramento: Rocklin Trump...
    Mayor de Blasio’s war on charter schools — read: on children, and mostly children of color — rages on. Now it’s not just sports fields, but the SATs. We wrote last week about the city Department of Education’s bid to bill the Success Academy network $500,000 so the public-school kids could use seven taxpayer-funded athletic fields. The DOE’s initial excuse was the cost of COVID-related cleaning and maintenance. Then Success threatened to sue, since state law forbids the charging of fees to use school grounds for “recreation, physical training and athletics.” So now DOE says the kids are just plain banned — merely because their classes are remote-only. In a Tuesday letter, the educrats insist their own reopening plan for regular public schools “limits in-person aftercare activities to students who were in physical attendance on that given day in the same school building.” Thing is, charters by law get to...
    A SUPER dad spent a year building a 50-foot pirate ship in his garden after his daughter wish for a pirate-themed Halloween.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — CBS 2 this week told you the story of young boys vandalizing a senior home in West Pullman, and how a mother of one of the young boys forced him to fess up. On Wednesday, CBS 2’s Marissa Parra followed up on how a local mentor is stepping up now too. “They went outside that door; not sure how they got in. It was a group of boys 8 to 10 years old. They went in, grabbed the fire extinguisher,” said mentor Dr. Marlon Haywood. “I’m like, oh my God, that’s my aunt’s building.” Haywood saw the same footage the rest of us saw on CBS 2 Monday night. Young boys were wreaking havoc on the building where his aunt works – the Hancock House senior home near 120th and Halsted streets in the West Pullman neighborhood. But Haywood was not angry. “It made me sad because...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Children were caught on camera vandalizing a building for seniors in the West Pullman neighborhood, leaving them terrorized. As CBS 2’s Jermont Terry reported Monday night, the kids appeared to be younger than 10. And the seniors were worried that the kids’ mischievous acts would lead to someone getting hurt. Those who live in the senior building off 120th and Halsted streets are uneasy. “They are a little fearful; a little nervous,” said property manager Arletha Patterson Smith. Here’s why – over the weekend, three youngsters piggybacked their way into the secured building. Some women tried questioning them, but the kids pulled up their hoodies and kept walking. “When they left out, they were like: “OK, who are you coming in here? Are you up to no good?’” Patterson Smith said. As it turns out, up to no good they were. The youngsters were seen getting to...

    (CNN)So much of our children's world has gone virtual. Remote school, Zoom holidays and FaceTiming with friends may be keeping us safe from contagion but they're leaving all of us — kids especially — hungry for the tangible.What if there was a way to entice your teen or preteen girl away from her devices toward experiential learning that helped her feel "calm," "proud," "satisfied" and "useful," as well as teaching her valuable life skills?Katie Hughes has just the thing: building. Her Oregon-based nonprofit, Girls Build, has served nearly 1,400 girls, ages 8 to 14, over the past four years.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Pittsburgh handyman known for spreading kindness is tackling a new project. He’s finding ways to help kids remotely learning during the pandemic. John Potter, aka Mr. Pittsburgh Good Deeds is always up to something good. He started his non-profit Pittsburgh Good Deeds to help as many people as he can. Potter and his volunteers have done everything from car repairs to babysitting to house cleaning and yard work. His latest endeavor: building school desks for kids in need of a better set-up as they’re learning online during the pandemic. Potter says his wife, who is a speech therapist, came home from work and shared how excited one of her students was after finding a school desk to use at home. It got Potter thinking about how other families are likely in the same position — with kids remote learning and yearning for a desk. Potter expected...
    The number of New York  parents asking that their kids only attend class remotely this year has jumped past 40 percent just days before the start of the new COVID-19-battered academic year, the Department of Education said Monday. A total of 422,190 — or 42 percent — of city kids have now opted for the format, new numbers show. The remote-only requests have risen by 158,000 in the past four weeks, according to DOE figures. That compares to the 579,698 students — or roughly 58 percent — who are now planning to  alternate between attending class inside their school’s building and remote instruction. That’s down sharply from 74 percent in mid-August. Mayor de Blasio has staunchly backed a partial reopening of city schools, arguing that working parents need scheduling relief and that kids will benefit from building instruction. After weeks of negotiation, Hizzoner struck a deal with the United...

    This past week, I worked mainly on the Scioto County Junior Fair. While working on the animal shows and getting photos from parents and friends of these kids, I constantly felt so bad for these kids. This is not what they thought they would be doing at this year’s fair. These kids look forward to a week’s worth of fun with their 4H friends, taking care of their animals every day and then showing and possibly selling their animals. They put in work day in and day out from the time they get their animals until the week of fair and while it was great that the fair board made sure these kids had an opportunity to show their animals, it was just a small piece of what these kids were expecting. However, even with that in mind, I was thinking about the resilient our children have become through all...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Students at the Unique Kids Preschool and Preparatory school began a new school year today, but with a different classroom setting. “Online learning does not work. They need to be in class. So I just feel like they need to come in class,” said Sharon Laing, the director and owner of Unique Kids Preschool and Unique kids Preparatory school. Laing told us she believes a student needs the in person interaction with their teachers, to learn more in depth. Which is why following CDC guidelines, they made the decision to open their doors with a smart and safe protocol. Laing said the once a student enters the building, they have their temperature taken.  Once going through the doors, they must sanitize their hands. They can only enter if their temperature is less than 100. Upon entering a classroom, students must clean their hands again and site at...

As a creative director, Anton Wikner is experienced in transforming rough gems into sleekly faceted stones. Still, he stacked his decks when he and his wife, a writer, purchased a “run-down” (in his words) apartment in Stockholm as the home base for their budding family. The 882-square-foot residence, whose interiors hadn’t been updated in decades, is in a circa-1960s modernist building by architects Ragnar Westrin and Stefan Szejnman in the charming Södermalm neighborhood, more often home to cottages and turn-of-the-century places....
    John and Stephanie Rupp openly acknowledge their stately downtown St. Paul hotel and athletic club has struggled during the pandemic, and even before it. Months before the health crisis, the Rupps had considered partnering with a nonprofit and converting at least part of the 13-story structure into a community center, or selling the century-old building and its boutique hotel outright. Those plans, however, never included sheltering homeless children. On Friday, that changed. Under an agreement brokered through Ramsey County and Interfaith Action’s Project Home, two of the hotel’s three levels now house homeless families that had been spending their nights sleeping in churches. In materials shared with hotel guests and athletic club members, the Rupps noted that 23 of the 34 homeless individuals that moved in on Friday are kids. “The children and adults are eating in the third-floor ballroom, because all of the meals are prepared for them by...

    By SALLY HO, Associated Press SEATTLE (AP) — After becoming homeless, Connie Wade realized she'd be missing something critical to care for her daughter. She and 12-year-old Emilyanne couldn't camp in a car or on the streets because they need to plug in a machine that helps the girl breathe easier. Emilyanne has Down syndrome and her breathing is interrupted every six minutes without a CPAP device. A typical open-space homeless shelter promised them a spot by an electrical outlet, but Wade felt they'd be too vulnerable. Then they got an offer from Mary’s Place, a family homeless shelter that recently opened a facility inside a gleaming new building on Amazon's Seattle campus.
