4. Children exposed to Hurricane Sandy while in womb show higher rates of depression, ADHD: study
While city officials were able to calculate the physical destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy years ago, experts are still grasping the scope of the mental anguish it caused city residents — even those who were in the womb when it happened nearly a decade ago.
In a study published today in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, researchers found that children who were in the womb during 2012’s Hurricane Sandy were more likely to develop depression, anxiety and attention deficit/disruptive behavior disorders than children who were not.

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to take a case brought by an NYPD detective asking to stop the city from firing him and others for refusing to get vaccinated against COVID-19, a court spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.

7. Two Rikers guards plead guilty to bribery scheme
Two city correction officers have pleaded guilty to accepting tens of thousands of dollars in bribes to smuggle drugs and cellphones into Rikers Island for alleged Bloods gang members, federal prosecutors said Tuesday in a release.
“The defendants threw in their lot with Bloods gang members and betrayed their sworn duty to maintain the safety of incarcerated individuals and other correction officers at Rikers Island by smuggling cell phones and drugs into the jail,” U.S. Attorney Breon Peace said in a statement.
On a recent Sunday, members of St. Augustine’s Our Lady of Victory Gospel Choir came together in fellowship at a luncheon to reflect on their past and try to figure out what the future holds. 
Choir membership has dwindled as people have gotten older, South Bronx demographics have changed and fewer young people are coming through Catholic Church doors.
