STAMFORD — A Friday afternoon fire damaged a dental office on Hoyt Street, according to Capt. Philip Hayes.

At 1:21 p.m., Stamford firefighters were dispatched to a report of “something on fire in the building,” he said.

“Engine 5 and Rescue 1 from the Woodside firehouse arrived on scene in under four minutes to find smoke showing from the rear of the building on the first floor,” Hayes said in a statement.

“A hose line was stretched and extinguished a fire that originated in a kitchen break room located in a dentist office on the first floor. Additional fire units advanced a second hose line to the second floor, inspected for fire extension, and ventilated smoke from the second floor and attic space,” Hayes said.

“Smoke and fire damage was contained to the room of fire origin, and two adjacent examination rooms,” Hayes said.

There were no civilian or firefighter injuries.

The first-alarm fire response consisted of four engine companies, one truck company, one rescue company, a deputy chief and a safety officer for a total of 27 firefighters.

The fire was declared under control in 20 minutes.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Stamford Fire Marshal’s Office.

Dallas Dentist/Rapper Dr. Rose Shot During Attack At His Office Building

(AllHipHop News) 

For the second time this week, a Dallas rapper has been shot as police grapple with a spate of violence in the city.

According to reports, a popular rapper – who is also a dentist – was shot inside of his Central Express Way office building just after 9:00 PM on just after 9:00 PM on Thursday night.

Dr. Rose, born Jerret Rosenborough, moonlights as a rapper, with over 150,000 followers on Instagram.

Unfortunately, Dr. Rose was one of three people wounded in a flurry of gunfire that shattered his office windows and riddled his SUV with bullets.

Dr. Rose and the other two victims drove themselves to local hospitals, where they are expected to survive their gunshot wounds.

The cops have no suspects as of press time, and they do not believe the shooting has anything to do with the death of rapper Mo3, who was gunned down on I-35 during an attack on Wednesday.

“My situation is completely unrelated to the death of Mo3, in fact, I’m a fan of Mo3. It hurts my heart to think a small portion of my city would think that I would join in on the controversy,” Dr. Rose said in a statement. “I’m a public figure, the work ethic and love that I put into my patients and community speaks volumes…I am very grateful to be able to say that I am recovering well with my family. I will be taking some time to focus on my recovery during this time. My office staff is working on reaching out to my patients to update them on next steps.”

Phoenix-area dentist’s office delivers 100+ greetings cards to WWII veteran

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – This Veterans Day looks a lot different than years past. Because of the pandemic, so many veterans are celebrating alone. A Phoenix-area dental office went above and beyond for one of their patients.



The cards kept pouring in, and on Wednesday, they delivered 101 of them to Robert Larson.

The cards kept pouring in, and on Wednesday, they delivered 101 of them to Robert Larson.


Robert Larson is 101 years young. He spent 22 years in the Air Force and is a proud WWII veteran.

“I loved to fly. My job during the war was teaching, teaching people how to fly, to the point where I felt like I was part of the airplane,” said Larson.

This year has been tough for Larson. He lost his wife of nearly 70 years and now he’s living through a pandemic.

“It’s been really difficult,” said Robert Larson’s son Mark Larson.

Mark Larson hasn’t seen his dad much.

“We’re just hoping things will get better and we can get back to seeing our dad the way we used to be able to,” said Mark Larson.

But he was there for Veterans Day, along with a surprise of more than 100 strangers thanks to Robert Larson’s dentist’s office.

“We wanted to do something fun so we reached out to patients in an email asking if they could send a card addressed to Mr. Larson,” said Carey Meyer with Valley Dental Group. “These kids put so much time and effort, people dropping off the cards that they bought on Amazon for other people to fill out.”

“I really appreciate everything that people have done for me,” said Robert Larson.

Dentist sues city after NYPD allegedly accuse him of breaking into own office

A Black dentist in Manhattan was accused of breaking into his own office and now, he has a lawsuit against the city.

Read More: Wisconsin Black man falsely arrested at his own home sues city

The New York Post reports Dr. Benjamin Shirley said he was racially profiled back in March when NYPD officers stopped him around midnight. The 41-year-old was allegedly taking out the trash at his medical office when police accused him of breaking into the building. Law enforcement reportedly approached the entrance, shining their lights and demanding that Shirley identify himself. Using their loudspeaker, they threatened to break in after the dentist identified himself as the owner.

A $5 million notice of claim against the city said the two police officers “attempted to unlawfully gain entry to the building by force and repeatedly called [Shirley] threatening to destroy his property and enter with force if he did not come outside despite the fact that at all times, they lacked any probable cause or reasonable belief that [Shirley] had committed any crime,” according to The Post.

Scared, Dr. Shirley called 911 on his own as police were outside.

“I’m actually being harassed by the cops here,” Shirley said in the 911 call. “I’m pretty scared here. I’m working in my office and they shine the flashlight in my face.”

“I’m trying to ask them why they are bothering me, and he said he saw me walking in here,” he told the 911 operator. “They are asking me for my ID and I’m not doing anything … I don’t know if it’s because I’m African American.”

Dr. Shirley’s lawyer, Reza Rezvani, described the fearful incident to the news outlet.

“They were threatening to break in, they were threatening to break down the security equipment, they were threatening to break down the door and go inside,” said Rezvani. “Imagine how terrifying it is to have to call the police on the police and then to be met with no help.”

The lawyer told the Post that his client did not immediately go outside and engage with the officers because he was scared.

“It’s midnight, he’s Black, they are shining flashlights inside — that’s how you set up all kinds of bad things happening,” Rezvani said. “To casually walk out, it’s not possible in that scenario.”

After a half-hour passed, two more police officers arrived and the dentist eventually came to the door and displayed his identification, the Post reported. Only then did the cops exit the property.

“Despite the fact that [Shirley’s] state-issued identification lists the address of the location of incident, [Shirley] was forced to provide his identification to [the police officers] multiple times before they would agree to leave,” read the claim, according to the report.

Black dentist says NYPD accused him of breaking into his own office

A black Manhattan dentist says cops racially profiled him when they accused him of breaking into his own office while he was taking out the trash one night in March, according to papers filed with the city comptroller’s office.

Dr. Benjamin Shirley, 41, briefly left and came back into his Upper West Side office building after throwing out the trash around midnight on March 9, when the cops allegedly approached the door shining lights inside and demanding that he identify himself, according to a $5 million notice of claim against the city and surveillance video of the incident.

The cops spoke to Shirley through the intercom threatening to break into the office despite the fact he told them he was the owner, his lawyer told The Post.

Two cops, “attempted to unlawfully gain entry to the building by force and repeatedly called [Shirley] threatening to destroy his property and enter with force if he did not come outside despite the fact that at all times, they lacked any probable cause or reasonable belief that [Shirley] had committed any crime,” the notice of claim alleges.

“They were threatening to break in, they were threatening to break down the security equipment, they were threatening to break down the door and go inside,” Shirley’s lawyer, Reza Rezvani, told The Post.

The incident made Shirley scared for his life, prompting him to call 911, the claim papers say.

“I’m actually being harassed by the cops here,” Shirley said in the 911 call obtained by The Post. “I’m pretty scared here. I’m working in my office and they shine the flashlight in my face.”

“I’m trying to ask them why they are bothering me, and he said he saw me walking in here,” Shirley told the 911 operator. “They are asking me for my ID and I’m not doing anything … I don’t know if it’s because I’m African American.”

“Imagine how terrifying it is to have to call the police on the police and then to be met with no help,” Rezvani said. “It’s the definition of helplessness.”

After roughly 30 minutes and two more cops arriving to the scene, Shirley came to the door and had to show his ID — which listed the office address — before the police finally left.

“Despite the fact that [Shirley’s] state-issued identification lists the address of the location of incident, [Shirley] was forced to provide his identification to [the police officers] multiple times before they would agree to leave,” the claim papers continue.

Rezvani told The Post that Shirley didn’t go outside to meet the cops sooner during the encounter because he was scared.

“It’s midnight, he’s black, they are shining flashlights inside — that’s how you set up all kinds of bad things happening,” Rezvani said. “To casually walk out, it’s not possible in that scenario.”

“What happened to him is common and it shouldn’t be,” Rezvani said. “The idea that this could happen to a man going to his office because of his skin

Treasure Island Center getting new office and fitness tenants, now nearly full

Ben Utecht, a former tight end for the University of Minnesota who went on to play for the Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Bengals, carries a Super Bowl ring from the Colts’ win over the Chicago Bears in 2007.

His next adventure? It’s called Conquer Ninja Gym, a new “American Ninja Warrior”-style practice facility that just signed an 11-year lease in the heart of downtown St. Paul.

By March, he hopes to open inside a 20,000-square-foot skyway-level space shared with D-1 Training, an all-ages gym that specializes in getting high school students ready for Division 1 college sports.

“It’s going to be an interesting 2021,” said Utecht, who plans to open his doors to future ninja warriors ages 5 and up. “It’s really a great business because it focuses on the youth of the community. How do we be a beacon of hope, and show the country, now more than ever, how we can do this together?”

Treasure Island Center, the home of the Minnesota Wild’s rooftop practice hockey rink and assorted government, nonprofit and retail tenants, will soon welcome a bevvy of newcomers — including two gyms, a sports chiropractor and the offices of the St. Paul Port Authority itself.

“That gets us to the point where we’re almost full,” said Andrea Novak, a spokeswoman for the Port Authority. “There’s very little space available at this point.”

After Macy’s department store closed in 2013, the Port Authority reopened the block-length structure in downtown St. Paul in Jan. 2018 as an office-and-retail complex. It has since drawn a mix of ice skaters, craft beer lovers and even a party room overlooking Wabasha Street, but relatively high rents have made filling the massive building tough.

The next crop of tenants may represent the most unique pairings yet, and they complete occupancy in the five-level building’s major spaces, though a series of smaller and oddly-shaped openings could yet be leased.

The building, which spans 540,000 square feet, is now 95 percent full, with 5,675 square feet available.

PORT AUTHORITY OFFICES

The Port Authority — the city’s primary economic development partner — moved into its current home at Infor Commons (formerly Lawson Commons) on St. Peter Street in 2013. After eight years, it plans to relocate by March or April, opening expansion space in Infor for its neighbor, an energy regulator.

“MRO (Midwest Reliability Organization), whom we share the floor with, wanted to expand into the entire floor,” Novak said. “It was an opportunity for us to give them that opportunity to stay in downtown, and for us to move into a building where we have an ownership stake.”

US Coronavirus Deaths May Reach 372,000 By The Time New President Takes Office

KEY POINTS

  • An IHME projection shows more than 372,000 Americans may die of COVID-19 by January 20
  • A universal mask mandate may save the lives of 1,316 people daily
  • Last Friday, the U.S. reported 99,321 new daily coronavirus cases

The U.S. may reach 372,000 coronavirus deaths by the time a new president takes the oath of office on January 20, a new prediction shows. 

More than 372,000 Americans may die of COVID-19 by that day if the current preventive measures continue, according to a projection by the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). The model also shows that the total death toll in the U.S. could hit 443,335 if local governments lift coronavirus safety mandates.

The number of daily deaths could also reach 2,290 if the current coronavirus safety measures continue. However, a universal face-mask mandate could save the lives of 1,316 daily. 

The prediction comes as millions of Americans have headed to voting sites Tuesday, despite a resurgence of the novel coronavirus pandemic across the nation, which has continuously broken grim records. 

Last Friday, the U.S. set a new single-day high for the number of new coronavirus cases, with health officials reporting 99,321 new cases. Hospitalizations are also seeing an uptick, with 48,000 people currently confined in medical facilities, The COVID Tracking Project reported.  

Hospitals in several states have already hit their “breaking point.” In El Paso, Texas, authorities are now preparing to convert the city’s civic center into an overflow medical facility. They are also planning to add a fourth mobile morgue. 

Bo Ryall, the president and CEO of the Arkansas Hospital Association, said they have a lack of medical staff due to fatigue, increasing costs, and community exposure, CNN reported. 

Researchers from the IHME estimated that the country would need at least 131,208 hospital bed spaces by January 20, 33,000 of which in intensive care units. The projection also predicts that at least 14,000 invasive ventilators would be needed. 

The country’s seven-day average of new daily cases has risen by 128.2% since early September, hitting 78,380 on Saturday. Officials worry that the upcoming holidays may spur gatherings and fuel the spread of the virus. 

Health experts have emphasized the need to follow preventive measures, including face masks, social distancing, and frequent hand washing. 

The U.S. has recorded 9.3 million coronavirus cases and 232,553 deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Dashboard.  Investors are keeping a close eye on the US election, which comes against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic Investors are keeping a close eye on the US election, which comes against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic Photo: AFP / TIMOTHY A.

Kentwood dentist office to offer free dental services to veterans

For the 4th consecutive year, Partners in Dental Care is offering free dental care to Veterans who served and are currently serving our country.

KENTWOOD, Mich. — With Veterans Day approaching, a Grand Rapids dentist office is once again offering free service to veterans.

Partners in Dental Care in Kentwood is hosting it’s “Serving Those Who Served” event on Friday, Nov. 6.

“It’s been a popular event and that’s why we bring it back every year,” said Dianne Groendyk, Treatment Coordinator at Partners in Dental Care. “Just like past years, it’ll be first come, first serve.”

This year’s event will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The dental services that will be offered free of charge include cleanings, fillings and extractions.

There will also be a registered nurse available on site for medical screenings and to answer any health-related questions veterans may have.

“We ask that veterans come to the office and pre-register on the 6th,” added Groendyk. “They can let us know at registration whether they want to see a doctor or a hygienist for a cleaning. We will take them in cue as far as order of which they came.”

Everybody will be required to wear a mask and to socially distance while waiting.

“If we are at full capacity, we will ask people to wait in their car and then we’ll call them on their phone to let them know when we’re ready to see them,” said Groendyk.

This is the fourth consecutive year Partners in Dental care has honored area veterans with this event.

“Our Veterans have sacrificed a lot,” said Groendyk. “Dental hygiene is important to healthy living, so this is our way to give something back to them.”

For the health of the nation, shouldn’t Johnson’s medical fitness for office be scrutinised? | Boris Johnson

Just six words, Doctor Who said, would be enough to bring down the unprincipled prime minister Harriet Jones. “Don’t you think she looks tired?”

Would it work on a man? Time to find out. “I have read a lot of nonsense recently, about how my own bout of Covid has somehow robbed me of my mojo,” Boris Johnson said in his party conference speech. Was he thinking of the Daily Telegraph, where he appeared“strangely out of sorts”, or of the protracted lament by a former fan, the Spectator’s Toby Young: “What on earth happened to the freedom-loving, twinkly-eyed, Rabelaisian character I voted for?” Young cited one theory, “that the disease actually damaged his brain in some way”.

Covid-19 damage featured again in a Times report detailing the exhaustion of a miserable and forgetful prime minister, who was also struggling with his latest infant, whose exact age recently escaped him. “Physically, I think Covid has had huge impact, definitely,” a source said.

“Of course,” Johnson told conference, “this is self-evident drivel, the kind of seditious propaganda that you would expect from people who don’t want this government to succeed.” This seems unnecessarily harsh on some recently prized supporters, yet more unkind to the elderly huntsman Sir Humphry Wakefield, father-in-law of Dominic Cummings, who reportedly said that Johnson is so unwell he will step down in months and should not have gone back to work early because you’d never do that with a horse.

Johnson added, presumably for the benefit of the imaginary seditious propagandists to whom, in dreams, he shows scant mercy: “I could refute these critics of my athletic abilities in any way they want: arm-wrestle, leg-wrestle, Cumberland wrestle, sprint-off, you name it.” And if protecting the population in a pandemic ultimately came down to the prime minister’s victory in next summer’s Lakeland Games, while a non-catastrophic Brexit depended upon the physical humbling of Michel Barnier in a series of tap-room challenges, hopefully excluding the more cerebral skittles or darts, that might indeed have been one of Johnson’s more impressive performances since, well, maybe that time he identified as the Incredible Hulk?

Alas, the most convincing rebuttal of unkind post-Covid-19 “Don’t you think Johnson looks tired/sick/thick/dishevelled/shifty/dandruffy/unRabelaisian” commentary is the one line Johnson can’t deploy: what the hell did you think he was like before?

As it is, Johnson’s affirmation of undiminished mojo seems to have been roughly as effective as reports of Donald Trump’s alleged plan to prove his potency by ripping off his shirt to reveal a Superman T-shirt. Like Trump’s accompanying protestations of perfect health and eternal youth, the (unrealised) stunt only added to his critics’ case for invoking the 25th amendment, which allows Congress to rule a president unfit for office. Regular medicals, even if these duly descended into farce under Trump, also mean that, at least in theory, US politics legitimises public interest in a leader’s physical and intellectual fitness for the job.

However idiotic, Johnson’s boasting about Hulk-level athleticism suggests a measure of respect

Egyptian NHS doctor stricken by Covid seeks visa reassurances from Home Office

Dr Basem Enany has thanked the more than 4,000 people who donated to a crowdfunder to pay for his legal and medical bills.

An Egyptian NHS doctor who became critically ill after complications from contracting Covid-19, has spoken for the first time about his fears of being removed from the UK by the Home Office while he lay in his hospital bed on a ventilator.

Dr Basem Enany, a locum consultant cardiologist at York teaching hospital, had treated many coronavirus patients. He was placed on a ventilator after developing Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare complication of Covid-19 and other viruses, which has left him partially paralysed. He can now breathe unaided but believes he has a long rehabilitation journey ahead of him.

“At first I had the usual symptoms of Covid – cough, fever, loss of taste and smell – but then I began to develop a weakness throughout my body. Then I was no longer able to move and couldn’t breathe properly.” he said. “I had never seen this happen in any of the Covid patients I had treated and had to research my symptoms as they were so unusual.”

He has a work visa that is due to expire next month. He and his wife, Marwa Mohamed, believe they and their four young daughters could face removal from the UK as he is unlikely to be well enough by December to renew the visa.

While Enany has regained partial use of his hands, his legs remain paralysed and he is waiting to be moved from Leeds general infirmary to a specialist neuro-rehabilitation facility. “I was not sedated on the ventilator and was lying awake in my hospital bed thinking: ‘Oh my God, my visa is about to finish,’” he said.

Enany thanked the dedicated NHS workers who have been looking after him and the more than 4,000 people who have made donations to a crowdfund that will pay for his legal and medical bills. Any remaining funds will be donated to research into Covid-19 and into Guillain-Barré syndrome.

While the Home Office has said it had no plans to deport the family, Enany does not know what kind of replacement visa he will receive, how long it will be for and whether it will allow work.

While Enany thanked the Home Office for its reassurances, he said: “We still don’t have any solid documents in our hands and my visa will expire soon.”

A Home Office spokesperson said: “We’ve spoken to Dr Enany’s family to reassure them that their immigration status is not in jeopardy and they are not facing enforcement action. They are here entirely legally and have every right to remain the UK. We will continue to work with them to find a way forward. Our thoughts remain with Dr Enany and his family
