Firefighter Sean P. Coyle is being hailed globally as a hero — from Alaska to Ghana and all over the Internet — for rescuing a Siberian husky who fell through the ice in Boston Harbor last week.

A life is a life, whether it’s four-legged or two-legged, according to the humble public servant from South Boston’s Ladder 19 — who’s been flooded with emails, texts and phone calls since photos of Sylvie's rescue spread.

“We look at the pets like citizens,” he told the Boston Herald, which first published the photos last Thursday.

A new pilot project at a Brooklyn wastewater treatment plant will use discarded food scraps to generate biogas, keep New Yorkers warm, and reduce climate-warming emissions to the atmosphere.

In the pilot program, New York is collecting food waste, such as half-eaten bagels and pizza crusts from cafeterias in the city's schools, and trucking it to a plant in Brooklyn, where it will eventually be generating enough heat for more than 5,000 homes.

Eventually, the plant will be able to process around 500 tons of food waste per day, which represents about 15% of the organic trash in the city.

WARWICK, R.I. - A Rhode Island woman is not only dealing with the loss of her mom, but a mistake on the way to the funeral.

Lisa Kondvar, of Warwick, and her family discovered another woman's body in the casket at a New Jersey funeral home last month. The body of her mother, Margaret Porkka, had been prepared at a funeral home in St. Maarten.

I was able to look at the face and I was like, ‘that's not mom,’” said Kondvar.

So she was shocked to see the body of a tall brunette woman lying in the open casket at her mother's wake in New Jersey on December 9.

Right away, the tears and the crying stopped. Kondvar and her family immediately closed the casket and left the room, she said

BELLE, West Virginia - The amount of a dangerous chemical in West Virginian's tap water is more diluted, but it is still unsafe for drinking, washing or bathing.

Col. Greg Grant with the National Guard told reporters that they are seeing readings of methylcyclohexane methanol dip below 1 part per million, the amount that the Center for Disease Control says is safe, but those readings have spiked from time to time.

"The numbers are turning in the right direction," Grant said.

Still, about 300,000 West Virginia residents entered a fourth day without clean tap water. Not only that, but restaurants have been forced to close, leaving residents with few options for food. As The Associated

The French first lady Valerie Trierweiler was taken to a hospital in Paris. Reuters report that she simply needs "rest."

The report came after a French tabloid published photographs that may reveal that boyfriend French President François Hollande was having an affair with actress Julie Gayet.

"'She has been in hospital since Friday. She will leave tomorrow,' her spokesman Patrice Biancone told Reuters. ...

"Asked about the future of Trierweiler's relationship with the president, Biancone said: 'She needs rest. Then she will decide what to do.'"

While the tabloid aspect of this is, of course, juicy. Perhaps most interesting is the point that Agnès Poirier, makes today in The Ob

A vibrant movement of prison vegetable gardens is spreading across the country that provides inmates with satisfying work, marketable skills and fresh food to eat. From Connecticut to to California, correctional authorities are finding all kinds of reasons to encourage inmates to produce their own food inside the walls.

In the following video, filmed in December, we see inmates at San Quentin State Prison outside San Francisco, thanks to this video from Planting Justice, a group that says the recidivism rate for the gardening ex-cons is just ten percent.

Last week, we reported on the correctional industry's enduring practice of punishing certain inmates with a bland, lumpish food know

GUTHRIE, Okla. — A Guthrie woman is getting national attention after she turned the tables on a thief who stole her wallet.

Jessica Eaves said she was grocery shopping earlier this month when a man stole from her.

"I approached him and said, ‘Sir, my wallet's missing out of my purse and you were the only other person in the aisle,’" Eaves said.

She gave the man an ultimatum. Eaves told him he could either give the wallet back to her and she would buy his groceries or she would take his picture and call the police.

"He just kind of stared at me for a second and he reached into his hoodie pocket and handed it to me," Eaves said.

She spent $27 on the man's groceries and said he s

A man calls 911 saying his family needs help. His wife is scared of their schizophrenic son, armed with a screwdriver. One, then two, then three law enforcement officers -- all from different agencies -- arrive. After the situation calms somewhat, according to the family, a tussle ensues.

What happens next?

In a case this week out of Boiling Spring Lakes, North Carolina, one officer responded by firing his gun, killing 18-year-old Keith Vidal, who was mentally ill.

The teen's furious family soon take their case public, saying there's no justification for Sunday's shooting. Vidal, they say, weighed all of 100 pounds; he was mentally ill, yes, but he was a "good kid."

WASHINGTON – The Hubble Space Telescope has peered back to a chaotic time 13. 2 billion years ago when never-before-seen galaxies were tiny, bright blue and full of stars bursting to life all over the place.

Thanks to some complex physics tricks, NASA's aging telescope is just starting to see the universe at its infancy in living color and detail.

Images released by NASA on Tuesday show galaxies that are 20 times fainter than those pictured before. They are from a new campaign to have the 23-year-old Hubble gaze much earlier and farther away than it was designed to see.

"I like to call it cosmic dawn," Hubble astronomer Jennifer Lotz said at the American Astronomical Society conven
