Workers fall sick at medical office building; dozens evacuated
GREAT NECK -
A Great Neck medical office building was evacuated Friday after workers there began feeling dizzy and nauseous.

Workers called 911 around 11:40 a.m. Nassau police, firefighters, a hazmat team and the fire marshal’s office responded to the office at 310 East Shore Road.

First responders evaluated dozens of workers who complained of dizziness and nausea.

“I've been in this building for 24 years and this was the most scariest moment of my life,” said Jeanine Marco. “A very bad headache, a little lightheadedness and nausea, carbon monoxide symptoms.”

Police say four people asked to go to the hospital for further evaluation.

“Fifty-five people were evaluated. No clinical signs of any significant readings were found in any these individuals,” said Nassau Police Detective Michael Bitsko.

The fire marshal’s office said it conducted a thorough search of the building but no hazardous gases were found.

“Hazardous materials is a science but it's not necessarily always an exact science,” said Nassau County Assistant Fire Marshal John Priest. “We checked for everything we can check for.”

The fire marshal gave the all-clear for workers to go back inside the building shortly after 2 p.m

As fact and fiction blur, America’s finally ready for Polish author Olga Tokarczuk - Big Think

Our fragmented times demand a new kind of novel

Bodies in motion, bodies fixed in place

None

Does it ever strike you as odd that we manage to inhabit two completely different realities at once? On one level, we have common sense and reason that orient us in the world. We make narrative sense of our own life and self and we go about our day with a provisional yet perfectly satisfactory sense of what the hell we're doing. And on another level, we know basically nothing. Forget about dark matter and multiple universes. Just glance into the eyes of that stranger on the train—there's a whole world in there that you know nothing whatsoever about.

I'm here today with Olga Tokarczuk, who won the Man Booker prize this year for her book FLIGHTS, and with the book's Man Booker prizewinning translator, Jennifer Croft. Flights is a patterned assemblage of sketches, short stories, fragmentary essays about travel. Motion. And it kept striking me while reading it that her writing is about these two worlds we always waver between: Orientation and disorientation. Trying to map things out and then getting lost inside our own maps.

2 Girls Burned During Chemistry Experiment At Morris High School
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -Two teen girls suffered third degree burns when an experiment they were working on in chemistry class caught fire in the Bronx Friday.

It happened at around 1:40 p.m. at Morris High School on Boston Road in the Morrisania section.

According to officials with the FDNY, the students were making a carbon sugar snake. The experiment involves using alcohol, and while the experiment was underway some vapor escaped and made contact with the flame that was being used to create the snake, officials said. Flames shot across the table, causing burns to the face, hands and hair of two girls, 15 and 17.

“From what I saw her arm was on fire, her sleeve,” one student said. “When I saw her running down the hall that’s what I saw.”

Investigators say a teacher was in the room at the time, but it’s not immediately clear how a chemical was able to get close enough to a flame for this to happen.

After the ordeal students were allowed to gather their belongings and go home for the day. Even though their classmates are expected to recover, it has many feeling shaken.
