Post by: The Real Laoislad on November 19, 2007, 05:54:25 PM
Not so much gear grinders but more things that you see that just leaves ya thinking to yourself did i really just see that happening...

I was in the local takeaway last night as it was my turn to cook  ;)..
One of the wemen behind the counter was washing the tiles on the wall,It was bad enough that there was gushes of soapy water drowning most of the sockets on the wall but she then preceded to wash the sockets with a sponge full of fairy liquid and water....I honestly couldn't believe what i was seeing  :o

Anyways it gave me the idea to start this thread as im sure we all see things everyday that leave ya gobsmacked.....

Saturday night there, I was at a hooley when a few people from work walked in including one of the managers, about an hour later I see him groping the breasts of one of the girls in full view of the rest of the staff, he was working on the outside of the clothes. I was rightly on and anyway I told him to stop, he feckin kept going and I walked out.
I am meeting him in an hour to talk to him about it, he has no idea this conversation is going to take place but that was my latest what the fcuk moment.

I am supposed to sack him on the spot, this girl reports to him and everybody seen me there at the time and they even have video of it on their cellphones. If I say nothing and it gets out I will be sacked as well, the hoor has put in me in a bad spot. >:(

Jesus I wouldnt envy either of you, but you certainly dont let yourself get the sack for someone elses mistakes.

Yesterday at mass, this woman walked up to do the readings (she later gave out communion as well). Id say she was well into her 60s, if not touching 70. Anyways, shes wearing a bright red cocktail dress, cleavage on full display with this dress clinging (and I mean clinging) to her in all the right (ultimately wrong) places. Except on her ass, where it was clear as day she had a good old thick thong (try saying that couple of times quickly) wedged up her hind end. Varicose veins, thongs, little red cocktail dresses and cleavage. Theres only one of those thats right on a 70 year old. At mass. Reading the letters of St Paul to the lesbians and giving out communion.
The collective whispers as she walked up the aisle could have been heard a block away. What was I thinking?

I have the aul Irish mentally drilled into me and that is  to say nothing. The only reason I am contemplating saying anything is that the staff have the whole thing on video with me telling the stupid fcuker to quit it. I dont know if I can take a chance and say nothing but if I dont he loses his livelyhood. I also have an obligation to my family and I am completely torn. Feck his stomach being in knots, mine are as well and I never get nervous about anything except Armagh matches.  :-[

Good luck. think he was a stupid ballox in the first place, drink or no drink, he is a manager and should have known better. If she brings a sexual harassment case against him and you are implicated and  have done nothing, especially if you should have, your fucked as well.

Think of yourself first and foremost

You need to get her involved as well and see what she thought of the whole situation. Document everything and report to your superior as he/she needs to be involved also. You need to follow your company guideline on sexual harassment if they have one if they don't they need one. If you do not handle it correctly you will lose all respect from the other other employees. Tough situation.

rewind.

1. It wasn't a work do, so nothing to do with work.

2. And what if he was groping her, sure their adults.

3. Its Feck all to do with everyone else

4. Sure, she never complained

If I report it he is gone, she is not going to report him at all, that I know but since she reports to him and he reports to me and the rest of the staff saw me tell him to cut it out and have it on video I dont know what else I can do. I am meeting him in a half hour and I still don't know what to do. I know what I should do but doing it is hard.

I have to document it and have the conversation at the every least but if I dont go whole hog and call our HR department I am in as much trouble as he is.

b**tard of it is not one of the hoors had ever been in there before and I have pulled out of the Christms party, I am not going to associate with this crowd out of work ever again, I never invited them in the first place.

You will find that a lot of places see staff Christmas functions as a extention or work and therefore that same rules apply, thats one of the reasons that I never go to them, you can so easily leave yourself open to all sorts of accusations.

I am in America lads, not in Armagh.
Company policy states that you are not allowed to fraternise with your staff members.
It was not a work do at all, they knew where I was going and who was playing so eight of them dropped in. The fact that it was not a work do however doesnt change the fact that there is video out there and the company wont give two shites where it happened only that it did happen. She reports directly to him and it gets  worse but I dont even want to get into that as I didnt see it.

I have never been very good at looking after number one, I usually end up getting screwed out of money like the time that kn**ker from tyrone took me for money after I sent him PGA gear whenit was held in wisconsin. I never learn. :-[

The unbelievable happened, he denied doing it, I was flabbergasted and told him that he did in fact do what i claimed, he got very agitated and sais that i didnt respect him professionally and that concerned him. I told him that one of us is a liar and it is not me. he told me to go ahead and push the issue and that he ws going to deny everything and that no one but me saw anything.

That was an interesting answer as he just let me know that he had already priimed those that were there and so now it is on. I am going to interview each and every one of the staff that was there and from there I am going to drop the hammer on the ballix!!!!!

he also said that by the end of the night I hadf six pints of guinness in me and that my perception was impaired, I told him i had eight pints of guinness and that he was so feckin loaded he couldnt count to eight. It is game on now. I am pissed off and if he wants to get into a pishing contest there is only going to be one winner and it aint him.

Stew, dont you have a HR department there? You could have a word with them, off record, without naming names, to get their advice. If you take their advice then it keeps you in the clear.

Unless of course it was the HR manager.

Why didnt the lady complain more - couldnt she have him for sexual harrassment?

Wisconsin

You cant have a word off the record with HR over here, if you bring it up they act and you better have your ducks in a row. I have sacked 24 people in my time here and even though I am rightly up I cant make that move without their approval unless some stupid fecker grabs a woman by the funbags in plain sight of everyone.

America is a different animal to home lads. This girl gets on very well with both of us, I have helped her career along and I brought both of them into the company, he was a mate of mine for 5 years before he started and we played in a golf league together.

That said he is banking on the fact that the staff will lie for him at this point and that is a very bad move. he has basically called me a liar and I know I can prove I am right and I dont know what he was thinking when he told me that I didnt see what I know I saw and I now have the documentation to prove it.The guy is popular around the office, we both are but ninety nine times out of a hundred people will do the right thing and both people we interviewed tonight said that they didnt want to get anyone in trouble but that I was right to say what I saw because they did too, one even said they were watching to see if I would sweep it under the carpet. I was never going to do that, I would have had the conversation with him but now it is going to HR unfortunately.

Brutal. Sometimes when a mans back is to the wall, especially when hes married with kids, he will deny everything. Its shameful, but it must be human nature, because Ive seen it happen time and time again.

Stew, Ive sacked one person in my life, and it was a meaningless part time job - still feel awful about it. How can you have sacked 24 and be so bothered about this one? The guy was obviously in the wrong to begin with, and instead of asking for leniancy, hes called you a liar. In the different animal that is america, I guess id have to easily let him go. Im like yourself in giving people the benefit of the doubt, but if someone tries to fcuk me, its them that had better have their ducks in a row.

BTW, how did you ever get caught buying something for a tyrone man? Did you float down the blackwater in a bubble? ;) I tell you what, If I ever want something from wisconsin, Ill pay you double, and upfront. Just to restore the good name of Tir Eoighan.

Not a big fan of confrontation so I can understand you apprehension, but you didnt bring this on yourself. You cant punish yourself for someone elses sins. Have a drink and get some rest. Youve done/are doing the right thing.

I am bothered about most of them, some people made silly mistakes that did them in and some were cnuts that deserved, the latter never troubled me, the good people do but again it was their fault and it comes with the job. I have 124 employees to worry about. As I said earlier me and yer man got on well, he has a family and I feel for all of them there as i know them personally but he basically called me a liar and I am going to hammer him and indeed already have. when i get back from Holidays he will be gone, some people will be angry but they all know that I did what I had to do.

As for yer man being from tyrone and screwing me, ach shure it was only about a hundred odd dollars, nothing to worry about but it makes you annoyed when you had to drive 60 mile to pick it up and 60 mile back and then to go to the bother of posting the feckin stuff. You live and learn I suppose. :-\

That true Stephenite but it is tough taking away someones means of making a living. This man I am dealing with is going to ask for proof and he will still deny it when I show him the video, I have it captured on my phone now and it has been forwarded on to those who will give me the green light to clip him. I have no sympathy for him after he jobbed me for no reason. he is fecked and he doesnt even know it yet. I think he was gambling on the staff not giving him up but they did. I am still in the feckin office working on this and I am an hour from home and have a flight out early in the morning but I will have all my ducks in a row before I leave.

a glass of wine is on the cards and then some sleep. tomorrow will be a better day. ;D

'Tis tough - but considering he tired to deny it in the face of overwhelming proof, well I'd find it hard to have sympathy for him. If, when confronted with it, he admitted it blamed it on the booze, apologised to everyone then I'd do everything I could to save his ass (official warning etc.) but he cooked his own goose - your hands were obviously tied.

If, when confronted with it, he admitted it blamed it on the booze, apologised to everyone then I'd do everything I could to save his ass (official warning etc.) but he cooked his own goose - your hands were obviously tied.

I gave him an opportunity to retract what he had said and he refused, I also told him that I considered it an insult that he would try to say I was lying, to this he merely said that it was just my perception that was wrong and that maybe someone else did it but I thought it was him. I told him that I saw what I saw and that again he was insulting me and that he should admit to the wrongdoing, he didnt have it in him and so i asked him to leave and told him what i was going to do, at this point he said good luck getting the video evidence and he walked out.

I interviewed some of those that were there and one girl offered me the video I needed and said that she thought it was a disgrace and that she expected more of her leader and that I was right to be investigating the thing. Case closed.

Vindicated stew? Enjoy yer glass o' red.
Usually in our place people are given every opp to prove they can do the work and the benefit of the doubt even if they can't, takes a lot to actually get fired. If that guy had done that in our company under ny law, he would be fired, sued and up on charges...
Safe flight.

I can't see that you have a leg to stand on if he denies it, there are no witnesses and, most important of all, SHE denies it or is unwilling to complain. In fact, I'd venture that if it's a social gathering and not what could be considered a company occasion it's none of your business, technically, and indeed you've gone above and beyond what might be expected of a disinterested bystander (which is what I'd class you as, in this situation), by doing the decent thing and trying to intervene. But if the woman is not bothered ...

I'd support the suggestion that you look for guidance from HR as to whether you have a role at all in this case. This is their department. "I don't know" is not an acceptable answer from them. If they say "yes", then surely they will brief you on the procedure to follow. If they say "no", then you can't go any further and if you do, yer man will have you for harassment.

But I'm no expert in these things and nothing about American laws in this field would surprise me.

I missed that bit. But is that conclusive, if everybody else there denies it happened? How good is the video quality and what happens if everybody there says "That's not me - and that's not John, etc."? It seems yer man has his witnesses lined up. At this stage they were all probably at his house playing poker at the relevant time.

The two people he interviewed about it that were also present agreed that Stew had to take action, one supplying the video. He deserved what he got, he took advantage of a subordinate and then denied it. The girl has to report to him, and the guy who took advantage to Stew. He had to take action.

If the guy had any sense he should of resigned, and at least left with his reputation intact for his next job. This could follow him around for a bit.

stew,
you have to allow HR to make the ruling on this.
To preserve your own career and maintan your professionalism , you had to follow this up once it was seen.
The guy signed his own resignation the moment he started fondling the woman.
that he has a wife and kids just adds to his stupidity.
You cannot legislate for people and their actions sometimes.
Rules are rules and the employees dont have a leg to stand on in the US.
As you have already found out, one of the witnesses was unhappy with his inappropriate behaviour.
This would only fester and would ultimately have lead to problems for yourself later on.
By nipping this problem in the bud now, your employees see you wil deal with any indiscretions immediately.

Sad that he was a friend and also she was a liked employee, but work is work. If you ignored this , you are party to the crime and also not doing the job you are paid for.
It obv isnt easy, but you have done the right thing by addressing it and handing it over to HR to make the call.

Similar situation happened just over a year ago here, my wife witnessed her boss (the GM) 'behaving inappropriately' with one of her staff. It got messy. She was vindicated , but eventually a few months later left. He got a sever dressing down and was effectively drummed out of his position in a company re-org.
married man with 4 kids. If I see him out and get a chance, I'll still make him sorry for upsetting the missus.

You just have to deal with these situations in aprofessional manner .You did. Its obv hard though. I've only ever had to sack one. The others I made leave by taking themout of their comfort zones and having them work!

Would have helped!

He has fired 24 people already, as far as I can gather from Stews posts, he puts a case together, hands it over to the HRM department and they pursue it after that. After firing that amount of people you should have an idea of the procedure involved.

I'm sure most of the rest of the cases are straightforward enough, timekeeping, poor performance etc etc
but when it comes to the more difficult cases of bullying, sexual harrassment, inappropriate behaviour etc - these are not as atraightforward at all.
He is lucky that he is in the US.
If that happened here, it would be far more difficult to fire the person, in fact they would prob would not get more than a warning. Certainly if the same scenario was replicated.
Stew's hands were tied as it was under US law, and he had to act given their strictness for firing people who transgress, and his own potential neck on the block for not dealing with it.
Dont envy the poor hoor.

Post by: stew on November 20, 2007, 02:30:05 PM
My flight is delayed so here is the conclusion.

First off I have fired 24 people in eight years for reasons such as non performance, sexual harassment and one clown was smoking blow on his lunch hour. I know the inner workings of HR very well and know what I am supposed to do but I have learned that if you were to follow the letter of the law every time you would have nobody left to lead.

I spoke with the girl involved, I know her very well indeed, she is a young woman I worked with twelve years ago when I got to the states and she has followed me into three different companies, she knows my wife and kids very well and has asked me to walk her down the aisle next year when she gets married.

I spoke with her this morning and told her the implications of her decisions, I told her that i have ben accused of lying by my sales manager, her friend Scott and that she knows I wasnt lying. I also told her that in essence she has decided to back him even though she knows he is in the wrong and that she is calling me a liar by her refusal to do the right thing and that she is now as guilty in my eyes as he is and that I have contacted HR and that there is an investigation starting this morning.

I am very disappointed in her, she knows this and she told me that she doesnt want to have to choose sides which is why she sat on the fence, I  told her that she made me out to be a liar, that she warned Scott that this was coming and that if nothing else she would be leaving my region because her position with me is untenable and I asked her to resign, she refused, cried and I toldher that if she was allowed to stay with the organization she would need t transfer out of my region which she is willing to do.

At this point she broke down, cried and apologized profusely and said she didnt think of the situation in the way i did and that she knows he did wrong, I went back to the fact that she backed him and the decision stood and gave her until December15th to get out of my area, she is willing to move to Illinois apparently.

I am done with both of them, I will e made to look like the bad guy and i cant talk about why this all happened but the staff will know as soon as the decision to clip himgoes down because he groped the fcuk out of a girl that reports directly to him, I know thi is out of character for both of them but fcuk them both, I am many things but a liar I am not.

So here I sit, about to feck off for twelve days while this goes down, I would rather be in the middle of it to make sure that it gets done right but I am sure my cell will be red hot and I will get the result i want. As i typed this up she sent me a text apologizing up and down and wants me to reconsider, there is not a chance in hell, I am bitter about this and I am going to nail the hoors arse to the floor.

No point in keeping skeletons in the closet, better off anyone reporting to you knows you mean business. And it is a way of protecting yourself and your own livelihood.

Okay in comes the DHSS - living away from home grant ... QUB hardship fund (f**kers ARE STILL CHASING ME) ... a covenant from my da (lied to the tax he gave me £1000 and they paid me £270 rebate on top of it) and working in a bar on top of that.. .. I was - as they say - f**king loaded!! However my mate Aidan (real name) topped that .. he got a dodgy doc to say that he had acquired a form of pubic lice in Morocco that posed a serious threat to public health!!! Letter to the Eastern Health Board and the brew and Bingo! a £7 per week underwear grant ... i.e. the lice eggs were so dangerous that in necessitated him burning his Y-fronts each night on an open fire to stop the lice spreading...

Stew, you're making this all about you when the original reason for your complaint was a perceived slight on her.  You've just told someone to put themselves in your shoes - how about you try putting yourself in her shoes - she's obviously good friends with him as well, she must not have been overly offended at his actions and understandably probably thinks that it's up to her whether it goes any further or not.

If you worked for our firm, I reckon you'd have a problem if she decided to report you for workplace bullying.  Though I get that you're in the US and I don't understand how strict things are over there.  But you've completely personalised it.  And if I were her, I would refuse to move.  Maybe you've the power to fire her over this or send her to work elsewhere - I think it's poor form.

You are bang on Stew. Very unfortunate situation, like yourself I'd be sick over it, but the lad wrote his own death warrant when he didn't front up. She followed him over the cliff by backing him. Basically they were not to be trusted anymore. If you soft soaped it, apart from putting your own job in danger, you would lose all credibility with the rest of your team.

As an aside I wonder was there more going on between then than just what you seen? Seems unusual the girl would just go along with the fondling etc.

Post by: Puckoon on November 20, 2007, 03:37:19 PM
Rois, I see your point, and my first thought when Stew posted the conclusion was, "man that sounds a bit harsh on the girl". The reality is that he did something to protect her in the first instance, then furthermore to protect her in her job. Somewhere down the line he also had to accord to "man mind yourself" (the first commandment). So after re reading and thinking about all of this, I think that he gave both of them plenty of opportunity to take the right line. It appears that this is no longer about misconduct from the guy in question. Now the new issue is that they have both implicated stew as a liar, within his own workplace - not outside. For that reason the gloves need to come off, and both their positions as his subordinates are now untenable.

Maybe there is something more going on, by the sounds of it the fella and the girl are mates ( or not bu they have worked together for years) so it would be a fair assumption to say it was out of character for him. If she see it like that and he has apologised to her ( do we know this?) then it is very harsh on the girl. I know HR is very difficult and can be impossible to find balance but i dont agree at all with the treatment of the girl. One thing im not clear about , and im not sure of its relevance , did you tell the girl that you would be calling the groper into the the office and potentially firing him?

I did personalise it Rois. if she refuses to move HR will terminate her not me, I cannot do that but based on the breach of trust we can no longer work together and so somebody has to move on or one persons gets to leave. You cannot have working environments were the associates are free to lie and were the leaders are branded liars when they are guilty so forgive me for perosnalizing it. I have helped these two out like you wouldnt believe in the past, i have never put a foot wrong with either of them and the conspired to me me out a liar, given the fact we were all friends prior to them working here and my history of supporting out I did take it personally and i have I suppose made it to some extent about me.

I also have an obligation to act, I have video evidence of the ocourance on my phone and I have a formal complaint by not one lady who was there but two and I am damn well sure that she and i never work together again, it is personal because they attacked my character and the staff know it and by doing so made my job a lot harder when in fact I  was blameless.

I am not now nor have I ever been a bully but i am pissed of to no end and I am disgusted by the young woman involved, i thought for sure she would do the right thing but she didnt and so she will move on and so will i. If I was a bully she would be gone right about now as I do get asked what i want to do and then have to give a reason why, if HR find that valid that is what they do. She made a mistake and will have to move out of my area in order to stay with the company, I think that is fair as I didnt want to see her or anyone gone for that matter but given her actions she had to move on.

I am 100% sure that nothing was going on between these . She thinks the world of both of us and made a decision that could have hurt me, she didnt realize that at the time but it is what it is. This young woman has never let anything like this happen before and i am sure nobody will ever do it to her again but I know nothing is going on between them.

Right. I am done with this whole thing on here. Skull. I am not a bully, i did personalize it to rois's point but for good reason, there is an awful lot of history between us and up until now all of it good. I am saddened by the turn of events but I will not be made out to be a liar in this case. That it not happening.

In many workplaces its not allowed. In some others its frowned upon. In nearly all workplaces that allow it, it must be declared to HR so as to determine if there is conflict of interest.

I  just can't believe that the "injured" party in this, ie the woman who was groped, is being punished so harshly.

Rois, I see your point, but the fact of it is that she is not being punished for being the gropee but rather for lying in a HR case. That she is unwilling to follow it up says something indeed, but the fact that her colleagues were offended and were glad that the case was being examined is enough in the US for it to be a very big issue. Had stew turned a blind eye he would have been complicit in the event, and therefore had the girl's colleague taken any action with HR then stew would have had to go too. Had stew not taken action the company themselves could be seen as at fault in the case, and then liable for a potentially large punishment settlement in the courts, which the company could then have turned right back on to stew for not following company procedure...


Its a very very pc world over here, and in the area of sexual harassment in the workplace its crazy. you need to ring fence your position to the letter of the law or you can be in serious trouble.  I know of one guy who got into trouble from his HR team for emailing a female colleague with the word bitch used repeatedly in the email. They only eased up when it became clear he was talking up her getting a puppy at Christmas from his expectant dog...

Is there a rule in the US that you cant have a relationship with someone in the same company?

If you rub the teats of somebody that reports directly to you in any setting you are automatically gone.

In our company you canot be dating someone from the office, if a relationship does start one person transfers out or leaves with no exceptions.

You cant mess with a subordinate in any sexual way, he wasnt derivig any fun out of the deal, he was drunk and stupid and she was blindsided and thinks the world of him so she tried to protect him and in the process could have hurt my standing, she never thought of that at the time but now she realizes and just apologized and asked me to reconsider. She has to move on now, HR have said so and that is the right thing to do. I love the kid, she is great but I am hurt by this whole thing and I wish her and the guy well.

Stew's mentioned the company had rules about staff "fraternising" with "subordinates". Most large companies have similar rules, but have a relaxed attitude to them - until someone raises the question, for instance about promotions, then they have their harris covered.

in most companies, people in a relationship can not work in the same area of responsibility. On lady just joined our company from another as they had hired her husband as the head of US sales from another role. Her sales would fall under his reporting structure so she either had to move to another post or resign.

when relationships form on the job, it can get complex (in more ways than one) but most big companies put rules in place to review them to make sure that it wont impact the company. If they are reported, in nearly every company I do business with their are very illicit and complicated affairs going on all over the place...

So he should just ignore the complaints from his two other staff members? Let them go to HR, reporting they lodged a complaint with him, not only that but he witnessed it too, putting his own job at risk? Never mind the fact your man would have tried to make a liar of him? Right enough.

Aye, if that actually did happen I'd tell them to feck off as well. Wasn't in work time so had feck all to do with him or anyone else.

I'll refer you to what I said in my earlier post - now I'm just thinking along the same lines as someone who has been at the receiving end of some unwanted advances very recently at a work do, not from a colleague but from a potential client.

...she's obviously good friends with him as well, she must not have been overly offended at his actions and understandably probably thinks that it's up to her whether it goes any further or not...


I can see that you're upset that she has implied you're lying and I understand why.  Has she formally communicated that you've "lied" to HR?  
I expect a manager to have some element of people skills and to empathise as far as possible - from what I've read on here, you've just jumped immediately to the defensive of your own position instead of trying to see things from her side and trying to exmplain to her the implications of what she's said.  The fact that she texted you to try to sort it out suggest that she is possibly beginning to understand, and that you refused to discuss it reflects rather badly in my opinion on your role as her manager.

Will caveat all of this by saying that there's obviously details that we don't know on here, and only you know the individual circumstances Stew.

I'm confused stew. I thought from the outset that you said that "he was gone". If he realized that he was going to lose his job if he admitted to it then can you not at least understand why he might lie about it as you were operating in an official capacity and he was desperate to save himself. Doesn't sound to me that you did anything else other than plan to sack the guy for what I must say is a minor enough misdemeanor in the grand scheme of thing (although I know that HR see these things differently)

Also, how do the people who made the complaint feel about all this. FFS two drunken adult groping. To complain about that knowing full well I presume that it could get a person the sack doesn't say much about their character. You'll be happy you have them still on board. The guy must have had enemies for people to complain about that and know the consequences to him and his family

That would be my opinion. Without knowing all the details, it would be my view that this could have been handled in a much more diplomatic way at the start that is of course if the two complainants didn't want their pound of flesh. If anything they are the real b**tards in all of this. Imagine reporting this knowing that it could get someone the sack (I assume they knew this and if not stew told them when they complained). You must be a real cnut to do something like that. I wouldn't like the office atmosphere after stew comes back...I reckon there'll be two camps set up by then

Ofcourse I have sympathy for her situation. But her decision to protect the fool, and therefore implicate Stew as a liar in front of the entire staff (who should not have been out together in the first place under the rules), left her position under Stew untenable.
He had to protect his position, especially given a video was doing the rounds and the entire office knew, some of whom who wanted action. Don't see how he had a choice. She did and took the wrong one.

The Christmas party argument is totally irrelevant. The company rules forbid staff socialising, whether that's fair or not matters not.

So you are saying its Stew fault in the first place for letting them out,him being there?

It’s a very sad day for Irish liberty when we have people on here supporting a company who think they can legislate for what their employees do in their spare time. And what’s all these references to “subordinates” about? Has our society become a military state without someone letting Donagh know? I’m pleased to report that in my place of work, everyone from the boss man to the Polish girls cleaning in the mornings are known as “colleagues”.

Letting them out?? Surely he can't stop that.
He was out for the night at this 'hooley' as he calls it and a crowd from work landed in. They chose to go where he was according to his posts, maybe he shouldn't have let them know however.
I can see your point, it just shows how impractical the company policy is. I'm not supporting the company by any means but they have that policy, and arguably for good reasons. Nevertheless it has to be adhered to or this stuff would be commonplace and accepted, as it is here.
The situation, and American company laws are different there whether we think it's a sad day for Irish liberty or not.

Donagh, you're making me feel very uncomfortable here  ;D but I have to agree with you.  Though I don't quite get the connection with Irish liberty.

As I said earlier, I don't see how it can be considered the boss's business if one employee "fondles" another outside of work hours and the "fondle-ee" doesn't have a problem with it – even if it is in public. I can see a tenuous connection if it's at a work-related function, but if it’s a few people meeting up in a public place, who happen to know each other through work, I can’t see it.

I originally understood this as a case of Stew doing the decent thing and asking yer man to behave himself, on the basis that he believed the girl was being abused to some extent. But, outside work, I wouldn’t see that as a boss-employee interaction, more a man-to-man one. Now it seems it wasn’t she that was bothered, but some third party. If they had a problem, I don’t know why they didn’t inform the police, instead of their boss.

However, if the PC rules and regulations in the US are now so cockeyed (and as far as I know they weren’t that extreme when I was with several US companies here some years ago), I can understand how he felt he needed to act, given that others complained. I’d have told them it was neither their business nor mine – “I’m not your boss here in this pool-hall”, or wherever it was. But, for all I know, in the States I could be open to the sack for that. That’s why I probably would have declined to administer a rule I couldn't believe in and handed it off to HR.

BTW, I can’t see how the arguments here about the morality of the couple concerned have anything to do with the issue of whether it’s the company’s business or not.

And a question – if it had been two gays fondling each other, what would have happened if Stew had intervened? ‘Harassment’ and ‘discrimination’ all over the place, I’d say. And would the other employees have dared to complain? I could imagine HR having caniptions balancing the PC scales on that one!

Post by: ExiledGael on November 20, 2007, 08:43:07 PM
Hard to argue with most of that, but once the third party voiced their disapproval to Stew he had to set things in motion to cover himself before handing the situation to HR, his 'ducks in a row' as he said repeatedly.

Stew clearly felt compelled to act in the circumstances in the interests of professionalism.

But how professional is it to use his employers' time to post what is essentially internal and confidential information on a discussion board.

In the US employees are expected to complain about any issues that will cause problems in the work place. This has all come about from the claim culture that exists here. If someone passed over for a promotion and the girl who got groped got it, all of her peers will sue the company and win for damages because nothing was done to deal with the workplace situation that was caused by the groping. If they complain about it, or if their superior know that it happened and nothing is done about it, then they cannot lose the case and the company is automatically liable for the claim. In most companies this is addressed in your employment contract and I'm sure its in Stew's.
The fact that he knew about it means that he has to act, if he doesn't as per most contracts of employment, not only will he be fired but they can come after him for costs of any settlement for any claim pertaining to the incident. By the way that also includes someone deciding in 5 years that this is now relevant to their not getting a job, or them getting fired.

If any of you who are busting stews balls are willing to risk your job, your house and your savings so that two drunks who report into you are able to have a grope in front of their colleagues that -congrats on achieving Irish Liberty and good luck with minding your own business. Oh hang on a minute thats exactly what Stew's doing minding his own business, and his own career, and his own house.

the couple made the mistake of doing it in th public eye where colleagues were present.
Think most of us would have gone with girl(s) from the office, but most of us would have had the sense to keep it on the QT - worse still, yer man is married and shes engaged to be married and sounded like she wasnt stopping or running away from his advances - so they are both sharing the guilt here.

The rules, ridiculous as they seem are not out to stop relationships, but to stop trouble with the workforce/court cases.
If the two were fornicating etc - whos to say that some disgruntled employee who didnt get a promotion/salary increase etc wouldnt take a case out against the company identifying that this guy is givin preferential treatment to his 'bit on the side'.
Or if the girl who was 'fondled' (and seemingly enjoyed it) was dropped by yer man, could she take a case eventually for not getting promotion etc.
This rule is set out to stop relationships fouling up the work environment, and also to prevent court cases etc.

bottom line is , if they wanted to go at it, they should have done so elsewhere out of the public eye.
If stew had been the only person to see it, I am sure it would have gone no further.
As others witnessed it (and subsequently complained) his choice was sadly made for him.

Look you may all have a point.....Stew just comes accross a bit too cold in all of this. He wants everybody to understand his perspective which is fair enough, but not once has he empathized properly with their positions or commented on the people who complained in the first place (they're the real b**tards in all of this). Thats what got to me. I'll accept that it's a different culture and he had to do what he done but it sounds like a cold cold world over there.

A tight, but not uncommon, spot. Not sure there is much you can do really. I mean what if you approach friends 1 & 3 and they are unrepentant? Or later if it all comes out friend 2 finds out you approached friends 1 & 2 but didn't tell them. If either friend 1 or 3 know you know and bring it up you can tell them what selfish b**tards they are, but that's about it. As soon as you know, but delay for any reason in telling friend 2, friends 1 & 3 have you in a spot. And even if you tell friend 2, friends 1 & 3 can just deny and you are the bad guy. All you can do is wait it out and see how the chips fall, stick by friend 2 and realise friends 1 & 3 aren't really great friends, if they would do it to friend 2 they would do it to you.

Ive decided to approach friend 3, just to let them know that their secret isnt really a secret at all. Maybe that might make them take one of two courses of action. Stopping the cheating, or just breaking up the initial relationship and getting together if thats what they really want. Of all the people involved friend 3 is the one I dont really give too much of a flying f**k about. My loyalty has always been with friend 1, but in the course of their relationship ive become really good friends with friend 2, and their entire family.

Anthem gaffe 'lifted Croatia' 
 
Croatia rose to the occasion in their crucial Euro 2008 defeat of England - after an apparent X-rated gaffe by an English opera singer at Wembley.
Tony Henry belted out a version of the Croat anthem before the 80,000 crowd, but made a blunder at the end.

He should have sung 'Mila kuda si plania' (which roughly means 'You know my dear how we love your mountains').

But he instead sang 'Mila kura si planina' which can be interpreted as 'My dear, my penis is a mountain.'

Now Henry could be one of the few Englishman at the Euro 2008 finals in Austria and Switzerland as Croatian fans adopt him as a lucky omen.

They believe his mistake relaxed their chuckling players, who scored an early goal in the 3-2 win that put Croatia top of the group and knocked out England.

Sitting in the car this evening waiting on the woman and spotted this boy come walking down the street and up to the phone box.  For at least five minutes he tried to get into the phone box from every side only the door side!

I have read this thread with real interest and have an observation.

Stew clearly felt compelled to act in the circumstances in the interests of professionalism.

But how professional is it to use his employers' time to post what is essentially internal and confidential information on a discussion board.

Just askin :)

Question for Stew, if the man had been the subordinate and the women the manager, and the same thing happened would the outcome have been the same?

Yip.............. a formal complaint was made, I never wanted things to go the way they did and I would have prefered to keep them both but I couldnt. After  her interview I had the option of keeping her in my department or having her transfer and she is staying. This was my decision. The same blade that made the original complaint is mad at me because of that decision. You cant feckin win. :(

The air head temp on our desk going on about christmas presents. No 1 on her list is the cats christmas present. She is talking right now about wrapping the presents for the f**king cat.


God help her .

She has surpassed herself this morning. She accused one of the lads of being smelly. The conversation went like this

airhead "you smell"
lad "i take baths like they did in the stone age"
airhead " oh no not like those old tin baths like they had in victorian times"
lad "no"
airhead "was the stone age before victorian times"
lad " a good while before yes"
airhead "why is it called the stone age"
lad "because they were all stoned"
airhead "i dont believe you, you are just taking the piss again, there is no such thing as the stone age"
lad " did you do history at school"
airhead "yes"

Anthem gaffe 'lifted Croatia' 
 
Croatia rose to the occasion in their crucial Euro 2008 defeat of England - after an apparent X-rated gaffe by an English opera singer at Wembley.
Tony Henry belted out a version of the Croat anthem before the 80,000 crowd, but made a blunder at the end.

He should have sung 'Mila kuda si plania' (which roughly means 'You know my dear how we love your mountains').

But he instead sang 'Mila kura si planina' which can be interpreted as 'My dear, my penis is a mountain.'

Classic.
We have a young engineer on site and one of the lads told him to set up the level. He was making a balls of it and couldnt find the bubble ( for levelling the instrument) so one of the other lads got him to go to the store and get a spare bubble for the level. He came back with some bubble wrap the store man gave me and tried to get it into the level. Even worse he reckons he got it in the machine!

In one of those silly debates about who lives in nicest area she was taking quite a hammering by a couple of local lads about her area known as Chelmsley Wood. Its a right kip. She went on the defensive when car jackings, break ins, mattresses in front gardens, all were thrown at her. Her response still kills me to this day. "Chelmsley Wood isn't that bad, hardly anything ever happens in my road, apart from that man that got raped in the alleyway beside my house."

Our resturaunt/bar used to borrow stock from another resturaunt (owned by a mean f**ker) and vice versa when we would run low of a particular item. There was one waitress in particular who was just daft as a brush ( one famous quote when we were talking about genghis khan "Oh yeah I know him, the footballer"?)

Anyways, one day the chef sent her up to grants to see if we could borrow a leg of salmon... So the chef calls grants and asks them to play along.

She comes back down a few minutes later holding a pork loin wrapped in foil, saying "Grants didnt have any salmon legs either, so they sent down some seabass instead"

She is just a temp so no interview required. She does her job in fairness which is just manual input so no thought required thanks be to Jesus.
However the boss was talking about making her permenant which means fudging her aptitude test as there is no way in hell she will pass it.
I thought the last temp was thick (she went on about crossing a chihuahua with her cat so she could put it in her handbag while strutting around town), when advised to read up on her Charles Darwin she just said "who?", but she wasn't a patch on this one.

We had an on-line employee survey done a couple of months ago. I'm sure some of you will be familiar with these. Anyway there are a few questions at the start that determine age range, department, and length of service.
We were brow beaten into doing this confidential survey, no one was interested. Everyone did it after management harping on that we had to do it, and lo and behold the results came back which portray our local management in a very poor light. Now the inquisition has started into who stitched them up. So we gave an honest opinion to HR in a confidential manner and now the shit has started to fly. :o

Maddog, tell them you are happy as a pig in do do and you will be fine. The wife goes through the same thing every year as a nurse and the leaders who get graded get poor results and then try and find out who said what and all that does is make things worse. If they done want bad results either A, change and do a better job by taking notice of the poor results or B stop sending out a meaningless survey that they end up ignoring anyway.

A Turkish lawyer is taking legal action against Inter Milan, the Italian football team, for wearing a strip with “Crusader-style” red crosses that he alleges is ”offensive to Muslim sensibilities”.

Baris Kaska, a lawyer in Izmir who specialises in European law, said that he had lodged a complaint in a local court against Inter Milan, which last month played the Istanbul team Fenerbahce in a Champions League match at the San Siro stadium in Milan. The Inter players wore a new strip - a white shirt with a giant red cross on it - marking the club's centenary.

Mr Kaska said he was not only seeking damages but was also appealing to Uefa to annul the match, which Inter won 3-0. “That cross only brings one thing to mind - the symbol of the Templar Knights,” he said. “It made me think immediately of the bloody days of the past. While I was watching the game I felt profound grief in my soul.” Mr Kaska told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that the cross symbolised “Western racist superiority over Islam”.

He said that Inter had “manifested in the most explicit manner the superiority of one religion over another”. He said the court had contacted both Uefa and Fifa to convey his demand that Inter should be “heavily fined for displaying an offensive symbol”. “How could Uefa allow this?“demanded the Turkish paper Radikal.

Inter Milan officials said that they were “astounded”. They said that in the first match between the two teams in September at Istanbul - which Fenerbahce won 1-0 - Inter had deliberately refrained from wearing the strip with the red cross but had felt entitled to use it on its home ground.

Police in southern India are hunting for two men who attacked a Hindu holy man, cut off his right leg and then made off with it.

The 80-year-old holy man, Yanadi Kondaiah, claimed to have healing powers in the leg.

He is now recovering from his ordeal in hospital in the city of Tirupati in the state of Andhra Pradesh.

Local people believed they could be healed of spiritual and physical problems if they touched his leg.

They also believed in Mr Kondaiah's predictions of the future.

Police say the incident happened 550 km north of the state capital, Hyderabad.

Pipe bomb is found at GAA ground 
 
A pipe bomb was found at the ground on the Ballela Road
A pipe bomb has been found at a GAA ground in County Down.
It was discovered during an overnight alert at the ground on the Ballela Road outside Banbridge.

Police have described the device as "viable" and it has now been removed by the Army.

The alert began at about 2100 GMT on Wednesday after a telephone warning. A male caller said a device had been left at the ground.

SDLP assembly member Dolores Kelly said the incident was despicable.

"Children and young people often go to the playing field for a kick around or a puck, and could have very easily come across this device with disastrous consequences.

"The entire community will strongly condemn this incident, and those responsible must desist in this type of threatening attack on a community facility," she said.

Police have appealed for anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area on Wednesday evening to contact them.

A fella i know was let go a few weeks ago so i offered him a weeks work this week...He was suppose to call to my house this morning at 7am..I tried ringing him and I waited till 8am and still no sign so i just had to head off to work
At 1 o'clock today he rings and says sorry that he overslept and he slept thru his alarm  and that he was dying with a hangover and then wanted to know where we would be working tomorrow,I said i'd let him know...
What should i do? The fella is out of work but because it's the week before christmas i felt sorry for him and i have enough work for two so i gave him a weeks work..then he doesn't turn up on the first day and spent all day yesterday on the booze when he knew i wanted him early on monday morning
Should i give him work for the rest of the week or should i say f**k off i gave you a chance and you blew it..Thing is i was going to be looking to employ someone in the new year anyways and thought if he was any good i take him on full time

If he had any respect for you, needed the work or wanted a job he wouldn't have gone and got pissed yesterday and slept in until 1 o'clock!  You also need to ask yourself if he did get up on time this morning what sort of a state would he be in at work and how much money would you waste on him?

Well any way was in Edwards bar which has a big dance floor and plays cheesey music and cheap booze. Well, there was this young wan dancing with her legs wide apart and droppin' her arse to the floor, wearing a very short shirt, and as sher turned around, it turned out she wasnt wearing any knickers. Like for f**k sake, she was pretty much offering her self up to any bloke you'd look at her. I was just like, f**k, thats seriously fucked up. I dont think any bloke touched her cause you can imagine your c**k would drop off with all the filth festering in her bits.  :P

Former "Baywatch" star and Playboy model Pamela Anderson has filed for divorce from her third husband after just two months of marriage.

Anderson, 40, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakdown of her marriage to Rick Salomon -- who is best known as Paris Hilton's partner in a 2003 sex tape leaked onto the Internet. The divorce petition was filed on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Salomon, 39, and Anderson were married on October 6 in Las Vegas. It was a third marriage for both.

Anderson was previously married to rock stars Tommy Lee, drummer for the band Motley Crue, and Kid Rock. The marriage last year to Kid Rock lasted about three months.

Death row Scot set to be released 
 
Kenny Richey had been facing a retrial after two appeals
A Scottish man who has spent 20 years on death row in the US for the murder of a two-year-old girl is set to be freed after agreeing a plea bargain.
Kenny Richey, whose conviction was overturned, will plead no contest to attempted involuntary manslaughter and child endangering.

He was convicted in 1987 of an arson attack on an apartment block in an Ohio town which killed Cynthia Collins.

It is thought he will enter a plea on Thursday and then return to Scotland.

The plea would see him being sentenced to time already served.

  I always knew this day would come, it is just that when it happened it happened so quickly

Karen Torley
Kenny Richey campaign

His conviction was overturned on appeal for the second time by a US court in August this year, bringing the prospect of a retrial.

Richey's lawyer Ken Parsigian said: "It is a complete victory and more than Kenny and I could ever wish for.

"Kenny is thrilled but a little nervous."

Mr Parsigian said Richey had spoken to his mother Eileen, who lives in Edinburgh, his father and his brother.

They were said to be "delighted" with the news.

 
Two-year-old Cynthia Collins died in the fire in 1986

A no contest plea is not an admission of guilt, but a statement that no defence will be presented.

It is treated like a guilty plea by courts.

Mr Parsigian said the plea deal was "as close to the state admitting it was wrong as we are going to get".

He added that Richey was planning to fly back to Edinburgh on Friday.

Karen Torley, his ex-fiancée and head of the Kenny Richey Campaign, said the plea was a face-saving exercise for prosecutors.

She said Richey was upbeat but anxious about the journey home.

"I always knew this day would come, it is just that when it happened it happened so quickly and out of the blue. It took your breath away," she added.

  Nobody can expect him to trust a system that already got it so terribly wrong - but it's an insane process nevertheless

Clive Stafford Smith
Reprieve

Campaign group Reprieve has been working for years to secure Richey's release.

Reprieve's legal director Clive Stafford Smith said the case epitomized what was wrong with capital punishment.

Mr Stafford Smith said: "An innocent man gets a death sentence because he had an incompetent lawyer at trial, his conviction is reversed two decades later, and then he has to enter a plea to avoid a second death sentence.

"It was the right thing to do - nobody can expect him to trust a system that already got it so terribly wrong - but it's an insane process nevertheless."

Richey had always denied murdering his former girlfriend's two-year-old daughter, Cynthia Collins.

He was found guilty of starting a fire at the toddler's mother's apartment in the town of Columbus Grove in 1986.

The case has attracted appeals on Richey's behalf from Pope John Paul II and the former Archbishop of Canterbury.

Should i give him work for the rest of the week or should i say f**k off i gave you a chance and you blew it..Thing is i was going to be looking to employ someone in the new year anyways and thought if he was any good i take him on full time 


I have a mate who employed a few lads in the states who were fierce beerheads, prone to not turning up the odd monday and the likes so what he did was he'd pay them $100 (example) a day if they worked 5 days in the week but if they only worked 4 he'd pay them $75 a day. He said their attendance at work improved no end.

I was jogging, says nude priest

A US clergyman claimed to have been jogging nude after being arrested for indecent exposure.

The Reverend Robert Whipkey was arrested in a suburb of Denver, Colorado, after an officer saw him walking on a street naked at 4.35am.

He told police he jogged naked because he sweated heavily if he wore clothes.

He will now go on trial before a jury in March next year.

Whipkey served three parishes in Colorado but was placed on administrative leave by the Archdiocese of Denver after his arrest.

The archdiocese said Whipkey was investigated for “inappropriate personal behaviour” more than eight years ago.



(All he had to say was that he was Ziggys mate in training for Greencastle 5km on St Stephen's day)

I don't know why she'd want to insult or hurt me  :(

Excuse me for hating the man that referred to her as a "lazy bitch" days after she arrived home from the hospital with a new baby.

Well as I say I've tried to remain polite and pleasant to this knob (for the sake of the sister and the children) despite hearing about the "lazy bitch" comments, his general aggressiveness and his constant checking up on what she's doing - stuff she's told us about herself and she's insulted when we don't like him? Wtf?

Pint I have to say that your sister knew this would both offend and embarass you and that she continued to go ahead knowing that you would be offended and embarassed speaks volumes about her character and as your sister she should have gotten you something or nobody anything at all.

I wouldnt be spending another Christamas with either her or the ballix she is with until she apologises, what she did defies comprehension. I hope you wait a few days and talk to her and get it sorted out.

The difficulty is she could be crying to one of us about something the tube has called her or done before the week is out.  She was never like that before she met him so I blame him, the ****.

I don't intend to talk to her about it, it's very hard to say "you got everyone only me a Christmas present" without sounding like a child  :-\

Well you better talk to her about it because sooner or later it will rear its ugly head, next Christmas for example would be a bad time for you to say you were not showing up and when asked why what are you going to say? you will look very petty at that point.

She is your sister and should carry a lot of the blame also, she is a grown woman who should have got you a gift despite what the d**khead said and she should shoulder a lot of the blame. You wouldnt want anything from the tube anyway would you?

get it sorted. Take her for a cup of tea somewhere and just tell her how it made you feel without making her feel like she is being attacked. I hope you say something and get it fixed otherwise it will eat at you.

My brother in law was to buy my business in the point, I paid for him to train to take over and I paid his travelling expenses for a few weeks to get him ready. He had six months to pay me the initial part of the deal and was then going to pay me weekly for the next five years, i gave him and the sister a brilliant deal and i warned him that I wanted no messing about and that I needed the money by a certain date at a certain time as we were emigrating. Despite numerous warnings he called me the morning of the deadline and announced that he could not get the money because the bank was closed a half day and that he would bring it up the next day. I told him that if he showed up at 12:01 PM he could turn around as I would not sell him the business. i called him and told him that the sale was off because he had been well warned and i knew i would get messed about and as we were emigrating I couldnt afford to get messed around.

We never spoke for three years and that includes my parents who took his side. I didnt want to sell to family but they really wanted it but they were messing me and my family about and i wasnt having it. The business got sold to the assistant bank manager in the northern bank and I moved on. The mistake I made was doing business with family, I had a feeling he would yank my chain and I was right but we then wasted three years of our lives by being bitter. We are fine now, we sorted it out and have moved on but we are not as close as we once were. i hope that does not happen to you pog, I really do.

I was watching that live when it happened, Channel 7 ABC news here  in Chicago. The look on the newsmans face was priceless.
The driver has mental problems (obv.) and a couple of family members died recently and sent him over the edge.

The newscast continued with the car half way into the newsroom.

There is a video of it on the internet somewhere.

POG, that is a load of crap that she did that. Very hard to know what the right action is to take, I guess you could ask her what the story is and was there any reason for it. Better off she knows you did notice and get to the bottom of it, then if you don't like the answer one less present for you to look for next year.

Else the other way to go is to ask did she like her gift and make her feel guilty about not getting you something. Also get someone to say it to her as if behind your back.

One way or the other your better to know what the problem is.

Well don't let the fcuker get his way, she will eventually come to her senses, you do not want to have burned your bridges with her when that happens, Just be patient your day will come then put the squeeze on the fcuker, stick a wedge between them when you get your chance.

Can't say this is happening but worth posting anyway. With the little insight you have given Pints some of the below have happened. Again not scientific but maybe in the future you not getting a present will be the least of your worries.

What are the signs of domestic violence?

Destructive criticism and verbal abuse: shouting/mocking/accusing/name calling/verbally threatening

Pressure tactics: sulking, threatening to withhold money, disconnect the telephone, take the car away, commit suicide, take the children away, report you to welfare agencies unless you comply with his demands regarding bringing up the childre, lying to your friends and family about you, telling you that you have no choice in any decisions.

Disrespect: persistently putting you down in front of other people, not listening or responding when you talk, interrupting your telephone calls, taking money from your purse without asking, refusing to help with childcare or housework.

Breaking trust: lying to you, withholding information from you, being jealous, having other relationships, breaking promises and shared agreements.

Isolation: monitoring or blocking your telephone calls, telling you where you can and cannot go, preventing you from seeing friends and relatives.
 
Harassment: following you, checking up on you, opening your mail, repeatedly checking to see who has telephoned you, embarrassing you in public.

Threats: making angry gestures, using physical size to intimidate, shouting you down, destroying your possessions, breaking things, punching walls, wielding a knife or a gun, threatening to kill or harm you and the children.

Sexual violence: using force, threats or intimidation to make you perform sexual acts, having sex with you when you don't want to have sex, any degrading treatment based on your sexual orientation.

Physical violence: punching, slapping, hitting, biting, pinching, kicking, pulling hair out, pushing, shoving, burning, strangling.

Denial: saying the abuse doesn't happen, saying you caused the abusive behaviour, being publicly gentle and patient, crying and begging for forgiveness, saying it will never happen again.

Pints thats the first thing I thought off when read your opening piece. he made the decision that you would get nothing and your sister is afraid to tell you that. He is trying to isolate you from her as you were very close. Correct me if I am wrong but are you not a big man. Bullies dont like big men around them for obvious reasons.

Oh my God you're right!  I read your post earlier when I hadn't time to respond but I've been thinking about it and yes I'm a big man but would never fight, well it'd have to be bad.  However, my brother would and come to think of it he was the first to be cut off - they'd only moved in weeks when the sister fell out with him over apparently insulting knob head's family, she was also saying stuff about him and his own relationship that I didn't believe but even at the time I knew she was repeating what knobhead was saying I just didn't know why but it all makes sense now!

She hadnt time to pick it up sooner but that was a passing comment there was no big issue - it's a voucher for a meal in a hotel, I would have thought it would have been the easiest to pick up. 
A list of complaints about knobhead though.

Pehaps you should ring her house....when she comes on the phone....ask her is bro in law there as you want to thank him for gift. If she panics, or stalls you will know that he doesn't know.

Or perhaps best leave it, and try and keep as close a relationship as you can with her, and hope she comes to her senses soon.

Seriously, not wishing to sound like Miriam- but a little communication wouldnt go amiss between you and your sister. At least figuring out where you stand with her instead of idle speculation and sensationalism. Some of the eejitry on here is taking what could be a simple misunderstanding to extremes with talk of domestic violence and so on. Blood is ultimately thicker than water and life is too short. Throw a few more cliches in there and we are good to go. Give her a ring, take her out for lunch and have a good chin wag.

I think it's best to leave it, if I rang up she'd know what I was up to as it's not very me.

US worker survives 47 story fall

US worker survives 47-storey fall 
 
An inquiry into the accident at the building in E 66 St is under way


Wife's reaction 
A New York window cleaner who survived a 47-storey fall from a skyscraper last month is making a gradual recovery - in what doctors say is a "miracle".
Alcides Moreno, 37, tumbled some 500ft (150m) to the ground in a scaffolding accident that killed his brother.

Mr Moreno suffered severe brain, spine and abdomen injuries and both his legs, his right arm and ribs were broken.

But after undergoing a series of surgeries he is now awake, able to talk and is expected to walk again.

"If you are a believer in miracles, this would be one," Dr Philip Barie, a surgeon at New York's Presbyterian Hospital where Mr Moreno is being treated, was quoted as saying by the New York Times newspaper.

"Above 10 floors, most of the time we never see the patients because they usually go to the morgue... this is right up there with those anecdotes of people falling out of airplanes and surviving," Dr Barie said.

'What did I do?'

Mr Moreno, an immigrant from Ecuador, plummeted from the Manhattan skyscraper on 7 December, when a platform on which he was working came loose. His younger brother died instantly in the fall.

An investigation into the cause of the accident is under way.

Immediately after the accident Mr Moreno received 24 units of blood and several units of blood plasma. Nine operations followed to stitch together his broken body.

But now doctors say that now Mr Moreno has movement in all his limbs and is able to talk.

His wife, Rosario, said that one day he even reached out and stroked the face of one of the nurses.

"I looked at him and said, 'You're not supposed to do that. I'm your wife, you touch your wife'," Mrs Moreno was quoted by the New York Times as saying.

She said his answer was: "What did I do?"

Dr Barie said that "although there is more work to be done, we are very optimistic for his prospects for survival".

Mr Moreno still has to undergo several surgeries in the coming weeks.

The medical team, however, warns that there is still a chance he could develop serious complications.

Mexico boy tries to stick at home
A Mexican boy glued his hand to his bed because he did not want to go back to school after the Christmas break.
"The holidays were such fun," Diego Palacios, 10, who lives outside Monterrey, told Reforma newspaper.

His mother Sandra found him watching television with his hand stuck to the bedstead. "I don't know why he did it," she said. "He is a good boy."

Police and paramedics eventually managed to free him unharmed, and he was only a few hours late for school.

Diego had got up early to fetch some industrial-strength glue from the kitchen.

His mother spent two hours trying to free him with nail-polish remover before calling for expert help.

Diego watched cartoons while paramedics dissolved the glue with a spray.

What the F#$k are you doing here?

A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment's employees.

Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town.

"I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming," the husband told the newspaper.

The couple, married for 14 years, are now divorcing, the newspaper reported.

A Russian man has been charged with killing two friends with an axe after he walked in on them cutting up his pet dog for food at his home in eastern Siberia, local prosecutors said today.

Alexander Yermilov, 40, "caught two friends with the body of his beloved dog, which they had cut up for meat" when he returned to his home one evening in December, the prosecutor's office in the town of Chita said in a statement.

"Flying into a rage, the dog's owner grabbed an axe from the floor and began to strike his uninvited guests on the head," the statement said.

Yermilov then called the police to explain what had happened. He has been charged with two counts of murder and is in police custody, the statement said.

Airliner crash lands at Heathrow 
 
The BA flight crash-landed at Heathrow Airport


Enlarge Image
 
An international passenger plane has crash landed short of the runway at Heathrow Airport.
Passengers escaped down the emergency chutes after British Airways flight BA38 from Beijing came down.

Six ambulances were sent to the scene and three people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The incident happened as Prime Minister Gordon Brown was due to leave Heathrow for China and India. His flight was delayed because of the incident.

The south runway is closed while investigators examine the scene - the north runway remains open.

  On its approach it took the runway too low, just missing the roof of my cab

John Rowland, eyewitness

Eyewitness John Rowland said: "The plane's wheels collapsed, doors were flown open.

"On its approach it took the runway too low, just missing the roof of my cab.

"It crashed into the runway, debris was flying everywhere, there was an enormous bang and it skidded sideways."

Huge amount of smoke

Another eyewitness, Nick Gray, told BBC News: "We were taxiing along ready to take off and certainly out of the window I could see a plane coming in to land.

"I'm not quite sure if the under carriage was missing or not, but certainly what we saw was the plane coming down.

 

"There were some sparks as the undercarriage or the bottom of the plane actually touched the runway - certainly a huge amount of smoke coming up from that.

"And then the plane did come to a halt reasonably quickly.

"It was incredibly efficient the speed that people got off the aircraft.

"I could see that the chutes were deployed very quickly and people were coming down on that.

"Then people were sent off to the nearby buildings which are probably only about 200 yards away from the plane.

"There about six fire engines there now.

"There seems to have been regular dousing of foam on the port engine which obviously probably was the hottest one where the plane landed.

"Certainly there is a lot of activity and lots of vehicles with flashing lights all around the plane."

ONE man has been charged with dangerous driving and assault on police after an officer was dragged along a road by a suspect car on the outskirts of west Belfast.

It happened shortly after 12.30am yesterday when police attempted to stop a black Vauxhall Vectra on the Bellsteele Road near Lisburn.

The 47-year-old man is expected to appear at Lisburn Magistrate’s Court on February 11. Police are believed to be seeking another man believed to have been in the car at the time.

“The car made contact with an officer who sustained an injury to his wrist,” a police spokeswoman said.

“Another officer then attempted to open the door of the vehicle but the car drove on, trapping the

officer’s arm in the door and dragging him along the road for approximately 15 metres.”

Both officers are understood to have sustained minor injuries but did not have to attend hospital.

The vehicle was stopped a short time later on Stewartstown Road where the driver was arrested but, according to police, the passenger fled the scene.

Two children, believed to be under 10 years of age, were also in the car at the time but were uninjured.

What the hell was this guy thinking about? he put these childrens lives at risk

A story based on the Three Little Pigs has been turned down from a government agency's annual awards because the subject matter could offend Muslims.

The digital book, re-telling the classic fairy tale, was rejected by judges who warned that "the use of pigs raises cultural issues".

The awards which rejected the book are run by Becta, the government's educational technology agency.

The judging panel also attacked the book's stereotyping of builders.

The book's creative director, Anne Curtis, said that the idea that including pigs in a story could be interpreted as racism was "like a slap in the face".

'Cultural issues'

The CD-Rom digital version of the traditional story of the three little pigs, called Three Little Cowboy Builders, is aimed at primary school children.

But judges at this year's Bett Award said that they had "concerns about the Asian community and the use of pigs raises cultural issues".

The Three Little Cowboy Builders has already been a prize winner at the recent Education Resource Award - but its Newcastle-based publishers, Shoo-fly were turned down by the Bett Award panel, run the government's technology agency.

The feedback from the judges explaining why they had rejected the CD-Rom highlighted that they "could not recommend this product to the Muslim community".

They also warned that the story might "alienate parts of the workforce (building trade)".

The judges criticised the stereotyping in the story of the unfortunate pigs: "Is it true that all builders are cowboys, builders get their work blown down, and builders are like pigs?"

Animal Farm?

Ms Price said that rather than preventing the spread of racism, such an attitude was likely to inflame ill-feeling. As another example, she says would that mean that secondary schools could not teach Animal Farm because it features pigs?

Her company is committed to an ethical approach to business and its products promote a message of mutual respect, she says - and banning such traditional stories will "close minds rather than open them".

Becta, the government funded agency responsible for technology in schools and colleges, says that it is standing by the judges' verdict.

"Becta with its partners is responsible for the judging criteria against which the 70 independent judges, mostly practising teachers, comment. All the partners stick by the judging criteria," said a Becta spokesman.

Merlin John, author of an educational technology website which highlighted the story, warns that such rulings can undermine the credibility of the awards.

"When benchmarks are undermined by pedestrian and pedantic tick lists, and by inflexible, unhelpful processes, it can tarnish the achievements of even the most worthy winners.

"It's time for a rethink, and for Becta to listen to the criticisms that have been ignored for a number of years," said Mr John.

Four arrested after scaling crane 
 
One of the men is seen outside the cab 
Four men have been arrested after they scaled a massive crane in Belfast city centre.
A number of roads were closed in the area for sveral hours while a rescue operation was launched.

Members of the Fire Service's rescue support unit helped take the men down the crane, which is on the site for a new hotel off Bedford Street.

One of the men was seen sitting out on the arm of the crane, which is hundreds of feet up.

A number of fire appliances attended the scene and police cordoned off several streets in the city centre.

No doubt if one of them had of been killed they would have sued someone

Marijuana vending machines in US
Cannabis bundle
Eleven US states allow medical marijuana on doctors' orders
Vending machines distributing the drug marijuana are to begin operating in the US state of California.

The machines can only be used by people who have been prescribed the drug for health reasons.

Patients will have to provide a prescription, and be fingerprinted and photographed before being allowed to use the facilities.

Eleven US states allow the medicinal use of marijuana, primarily for pain relief, but it remains controversial.

Vince Mehdizadeh, owner of the Herbal Nutrition Centre in Los Angeles, where one of the two first machines is based, said it would allow patients to buy extra supplies whenever needed.

Series of checks

Once the users have been photographed, fingerprinted and have shown their prescription, they will be issued with a card which can be used in the machines, he told KWTX News 10 in the US.

"They'll be greeted by a security guard right there. They'll slide the card in and they'll fingerprint in to verify that it's them," he was quoted by KWTX News 10 as saying.

"A camera takes a picture of them, verifying that they're actually at the machine. And they get the medicine and they move on."

The operators think that vending machines issuing prescription drugs could become a common sight in the US.

Proponents say marijauna is a valuable tool for relieving pain and stimulating appetite in the sick.

However, it remains banned by the 1970 Controlled Substances Act and the US federal government does not currently recognise any legitimate medical use

So there we were, just about to head to bed on bank holiday Monday night when I noticed the police helicopter circling above, noticed that the spotlight was concentrating on my backyard and the ones to left, right, and on the street behind us. Was watching this with interest when herself comes down to tell me that there are a load of squad cars out in the street – this went on for a while and pretty soon some police officers came over the fence into our yard, opened the door to tell them that the back shed had no lock, they took out their guns and crept down the garden, shone the flashlight into the shed window and then went in, all clear. One of the police asked if he could come through the house to get back onto the road.

Went back down to our sunroom and was watching the chopper spotlight (which had by now moved down a couple of streets) and I see this man in a t-shirt tip toeing from one side of the house into the backyard no more than 3 feet from me, heart leapt and I was up the hall way and out into the street to get the police – they all piled into the house and out into the yard, 2 minutes later 3 big lads came in with massive Alsatians straining at the leash and the helicopter spotlight was now back shining directly at our yard. They had a pretty good look and found some footprints, sent the dog in under the house to ensure that he wasn’t in there – gave us the all clear again. Helicopters and squad cars stayed in the area for another hour or so – media report below. Knackered this morning


From smh.com.au

TWO police officers are in hospital following a manhunt for armed robbers in Sydney's north-east.
Police say one male offender remains on the run and three are in custody following an armed robbery at Gladesville.
A police helicopter and a dog squad joined the manhunt after four men allegedly entered a licensed club in Ryde Rd about 10.30pm (AEDT) last night.
The offenders, one allegedly brandishing a firearm, threatened several people inside the premises before failing to steal an ATM.
Police say they did steal a sum of cash before fleeing the scene in a Mitsubishi Evo.
A short time later, officers sighted the car and pursued it into nearby Summer Hill before it crashed into another car.
The men allegedly fled on foot while the 52-year-old female driver of the other car escaped the crash uninjured.
A massive search involving PolAir and police dogs located the men aged 20, 25 and 31.
Police are questioning the men and continue their search for the alleged fourth offender.
The two police officers who responded to the incident were injured when their vehicle left the road and struck a pole at Ashfield about 10.45pm.
Both officers sustained back and neck injuries and were taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for treatment



EDIT : One of the arrested is also to be charged with animal cruelty having punched the police dog when apprehended

Rough night Stephenite. We had a guy go crazy in reno last year, knifed his ex-wife to death and then shot his divorce judge from a car park through the reno courthouse window. Of course the whole scenario was played out on tv, and Mrs Puck was at home while I was working. A news report was released that this murderers car had been abandoned in our neighbourhood and that everyone was instructed to lock down their houses. The panic alert I recieved from the wife was second to none, I wish Id have saved the voicemail.

   and the damage surpasses $500, it's a felony against you :o 

I was just wondering about that, if this was to happen in the states would he be charged with assaulting a police officer/resisting arrest for thumping the dog? Or is it just straight cruelty to animals?

So there we were, just about to head to bed on bank holiday Monday night when I noticed the police helicopter circling above, noticed that the spotlight was concentrating on my backyard and the ones to left, right, and on the street behind us. Was watching this with interest when herself comes down to tell me that there are a load of squad cars out in the street – this went on for a while and pretty soon some police officers came over the fence into our yard, opened the door to tell them that the back shed had no lock, they took out their guns and crept down the garden, shone the flashlight into the shed window and then went in, all clear. One of the police asked if he could come through the house to get back onto the road.

Went back down to our sunroom and was watching the chopper spotlight (which had by now moved down a couple of streets) and I see this man in a t-shirt tip toeing from one side of the house into the backyard no more than 3 feet from me, heart leapt and I was up the hall way and out into the street to get the police – they all piled into the house and out into the yard, 2 minutes later 3 big lads came in with massive Alsatians straining at the leash and the helicopter spotlight was now back shining directly at our yard. They had a pretty good look and found some footprints, sent the dog in under the house to ensure that he wasn’t in there – gave us the all clear again. Helicopters and squad cars stayed in the area for another hour or so – media report below. Knackered this morning


From smh.com.au

TWO police officers are in hospital following a manhunt for armed robbers in Sydney's north-east.
Police say one male offender remains on the run and three are in custody following an armed robbery at Gladesville.
A police helicopter and a dog squad joined the manhunt after four men allegedly entered a licensed club in Ryde Rd about 10.30pm (AEDT) last night.
The offenders, one allegedly brandishing a firearm, threatened several people inside the premises before failing to steal an ATM.
Police say they did steal a sum of cash before fleeing the scene in a Mitsubishi Evo.
A short time later, officers sighted the car and pursued it into nearby Summer Hill before it crashed into another car.
The men allegedly fled on foot while the 52-year-old female driver of the other car escaped the crash uninjured.
A massive search involving PolAir and police dogs located the men aged 20, 25 and 31.
Police are questioning the men and continue their search for the alleged fourth offender.
The two police officers who responded to the incident were injured when their vehicle left the road and struck a pole at Ashfield about 10.45pm.
Both officers sustained back and neck injuries and were taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for treatment



EDIT : One of the arrested is also to be charged with animal cruelty having punched the police dog when apprehended



Rough night Stephenite. We had a guy go crazy in reno last year, knifed his ex-wife to death and then shot his divorce judge from a car park through the reno courthouse window. Of course the whole scenario was played out on tv, and Mrs Puck was at home while I was working. A news report was released that this murderers car had been abandoned in our neighbourhood and that everyone was instructed to lock down their houses. The panic alert I recieved from the wife was second to none, I wish Id have saved the voicemail.


I dont understand how you can charge the guy with punching the alsation. I mean if the fecking thing has a hold of you its completely intuitive!

Puck, was that the big ex bodybuilder? Mack or something? He wounded the judge? I read about that. I think he gave himself up in MExico or somewhere?

AZ, Yeah, Darren Mack. Lunatic and swinger extrordinaire. Was estranged from the wife, was living the swinging lifestyle and just went bananas. He shot the judge through his office window with a high powered rifle from across the street in a parking garage. The whole downtown was shut down as the cops thought we had a sniper going after public figures.
He gave himself up and is now sueing his first trial laywer team as he said they coerced him to plead insanity.

Eddie O'Sullivan  >:( >:( >:( >:( ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Brian O'Driscoll will win his 80th cap for Ireland this Saturday when he leads the team out to play Italy in Croke Park in the opening game of the 2008 RBS 6 Nations Championship.

Coach Eddie O'Sullivan has named Geordan Murphy on the left wing, with Ulster's Andrew Trimble named on the right wing.  At halfback, Ronan O'Gara will continue his partnership with Eoin Reddan, who was named at scrumhalf to win his sixth cap for Ireland.

In the forwards, Prop John Hayes will also be reaching the landmark of 80 caps for Ireland in a front row that sees the return of Rory Best to the starting line-up.

Malcolm O'Kelly also returns to the starting fifteen to extend his Ireland caps record to 92.

Speaking about his team selection, Eddie O'Sullivan said: 'There were a couple of difficult calls to make. The front row was hard because Rory has played very well since recovering from injury, but Jackman pushed him close.

'We looked at Jamie Heaslip because of his form but on balance we decided to leave the back row as it is. Scrum-half was a tight call as well. It could have gone either way between Reddan and Stringer.'


Ireland team to play Italy in the RBS 6 Nations at Croke Park on Saturday 2 February at Croke Park.

15 Girvan Dempsey, 14 Andrew Trimble, 13 Brian O'Driscoll, (capt), 12 Gordon D'Arcy, 11 Geordan Murphy, 10 Ronan O'Gara, 9 Eoin Reddan.

1 Marcus Horan, 2, Rory Best,  3 John Hayes, 4, Donnacha O'Callaghan, 5 Malcolm O'Kelly, 6 Simon Easterby, 7 David Wallace, 8 Denis Leamy.

Replacements: 16, Bernard Jackman, 17, Tony Buckley, 18 Mick O'Driscoll, 19, Jamie Heaslip, 20, Peter Stringer, 21, Paddy Wallace, 22 Robert Kearney.

Not considered: Jerry Flannery, Paul O'Connell.

Bedroom furniture for young girls with the brand name Lolita has been withdrawn by Woolworths following complaints from parents.

A parenting website said it was in "unbelievably bad taste" to give the bed the same name as a novel about a sexually precocious young girl.

Woolworths said the £395 Lolita Midsleeper Combi was withdrawn when the matter was brought to its attention.

Vladimir Nabokov's 1955 novel became famous for its controversial subject.

The story of a stepfather's sexual obsession with a 12-year-old girl has been adapted for film twice: first by Stanley Kubrick in 1962 and later in 1997 when Jeremy Irons played the lead part of Humbert Humbert.

Catherine Hanly, editor of parenting website raisingkids.co.uk, was among the parents to complain about the furniture advertised on the Woolworths website.

She said a Woolworths press officer had told her staff running the website "had no idea" of the word's connotations.

"I expect a company like Woolworths to actually know what it means and the connotations and stuff," she told BBC Radio Five Live Breakfast.

"It has become a name that is synonymous with sexual precocity and the fact that it is tied to a girl's bed - it literally couldn't be worse taste."

A Woolworths spokeswoman said: "Now this has been brought to our attention, the product has been removed from sale with immediate effect.

She said the suppliers, who advertise the product on the Woolworths' website, would be asked how the branding came about.

Playboy bunny

It is not the first time retailers have been criticised for using branding with sexual connotations on goods marketed for children.

In 2005, WH Smiths came under fire for selling youngsters stationery bearing the Playboy bunny - a symbol of the pornography empire.

Prior to that Bhs decided to withdraw its Little Miss Naughty range of padded bras and knickers for pre-teen girls.

Argos, however, defended its range of underwear for girls as young as nine including G-strings and padded bras as products in demand among children.

The mayor of a small town in Texas has resigned after secretly keeping her neighbour's Shih Tzu while pretending it had died.
 
Neighbours had asked Alice Mayor Grace Saenz-Lopez to look after the dog, Puddles, during a holiday. She called them to say it was dead.

But the dog, which Ms Saenz-Lopez had renamed Panchito, was later seen at a dog groomer's and at her sister's home.

A custody hearing on Monday is expected to decide who keeps the pet.

Ms Saenz-Lopez had filed a police report to say that Puddles was missing.

She was indicted on 18 January on two counts of tampering with evidence and concealing evidence.

In a resignation letter published by the Alice Echo-News Journal Ms Saenz Lopez apologised for the incident.

"I can tell you that I did at the time what I thought was best for Panchito and what I felt was right in my heart," she wrote.

"I am sorry for the division that the events of these last few weeks have caused.

"It was never my intent to bring any negative exposure to our city."

Mum accused of killing baby in microwave

A woman accused of killing her baby daughter in a microwave oven told her boyfriend the child would still be alive if he'd not been out cheating, the boyfriend told a US court.

Terrell Talley said his girlfriend China Arnold had admitted to killing the one-month-old girl, named Paris.

The girl was pronounced dead in August 2005, after the couple took her to hospital.

Some months later, in a phone conversation, Talley said Arnold told him of a possible motive for her actions.

"She told me if I wouldn't be out cheating, my baby would still be alive," Talley told the court.

Arnold has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and could face the death penalty if convicted.

Under questioning by defence lawyer Jon Paul Rion, Talley acknowledged telling people he did not have any idea what happened to the baby.

The defence has said that people other than Arnold had access to the baby and that she was intoxicated when the baby died.

Talley said Arnold was drunk, but not so drunk that she would not know what happened.

He said the baby was fine when he went to sleep.

But the next morning, Talley said he saw a red mark on the baby's face and noticed she was stiff and cold.

The trial continues.

How Dubai Holiday Could Land You In Jail

By Julia Reid
Updated:15:22, Friday February 08, 2008

A simple poppy seed in your sandwich or one or two over-the-counter painkillers can land you in a foreign jail for up to four years, it has been warned.
 
Dubai is becoming more popularLegal charity Fair Trials International says travellers are at risk if even the smallest trace of a banned substance is found on them when entering the United Arab Emirates.

With more Britons than ever taking sunshine holidays in Dubai, there has been a recent spate of arrests and imprisonment.

Earlier this week youth development officer Keith Brown from Birmingham was jailed for four years after 0.003g of cannabis was found in the tread of his shoes by customs officials in Dubai.

The amount of the drug found on his shoe was less than a grain of sugar.

MAN LIVER WITH CORPSE FOR YEARS

The body of a man believed to have been dead for more than five years has been found in a Bristol flat where a tenant continued to live.
The remains of Denis Pring were discovered on a sofa in the lounge after neighbours reported a foul smell.

Mr Pring, who would have been 73, was a lodger at the flat in Bedminster.

It is thought the flat's tenant failed to report the death because he suffers from mental health problems.

An inquest has been opened and adjourned.

The tenant, named locally as Alan Derrick, and also in his 70s, was initially arrested in connection with the discovery, but was later bailed.

Police are no longer treating the death as suspicious.

Bristol City Council has launched an internal inquiry to establish how the corpse went unnoticed for so long.

A spokesman said: "We were alerted to the body after we received reports of a smell.

"We are shocked and concerned by this discovery and are carrying out an urgent internal review of the circumstances of the tenant.

"A police investigation is ongoing, and it would be inappropriate to comment further while this is taking place."

Assault rap for rough handshake 
 
The lawyer could face up to a year in jail for her vigorous handshake
A Florida lawyer has been charged with assault for over-vigorously shaking the hand of a fellow attorney.
Kathy Brewer Rentas, 49, shook the hand of Assistant US Attorney Jennifer Keene so hard her arm was nearly ripped out of its socket, a court official said.

Moments before, Ms Keene successfully prosecuted Ms Brewer Rentas' husband.

Anthony Rentas was accused of violating the terms of a probation order for supplying cocaine, and sentenced to 90 days of house arrest.

After the hearing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Mrs Brewer Rentas insisted on shaking the prosecuting lawyer's hand.

In shaking it, she nearly floored Ms Keene with the vigour of her hand-action.

The strong arm of the lawyer

"With Keene in hand, Brewer made an upward, then a quick downward motion and pulled Keene toward the ground moving her forward, almost causing Keene to fall to the ground," said a court security officer.

Alicia Valle, a spokeswoman for the US Attorney's Office, said assaulting a federal officer was a serious matter and that Mrs Brewer Rentas would be prosecuted "vigorously".

"As a member of the bar, she should know better," she said.

Mrs Brewer Rentas was freed on Friday on $100,000 (£50,000) bail, after spending a night in solitary confinement, and ordered to undergo psychological examination.

She was also ordered to stay away from Mrs Keene, and faces up to a year in prison if convicted of assault.

Mrs Brewer Rentas says she did not intend to cause any harm.

Brothers jailed over van robbery

Two brothers who were part of a four-man armed-gang have been jailed for a total of 11 years.
Belfast Crown Court heard that last year, Damien Gibbons, 32, grabbed a cash box from a van guard outside the Northern Bank in Finaghy.
The guard was an undercover policeman who chased Gibbons to a waiting van driven by his brother, Stephen, 34.
After a scuffle both men were arrested. The brothers, with no fixed address, pleaded guilty to robbery.
Damien Gibbons also admitted a further charge of attempting to inflict grievious bodily harm with intent.

A prosecuting lawyer told the court that Damien Gibbons had 165 previous convictions while his brother had 295.

Two other men who were arrested nearby - David Crone, 25 of no fixed address and Declan Stilges, 33, from Norglen Parade in Belfast.
They have also pleaded guilty to the robbery and are due to be sentenced next month.

A 16-year-old Argentine girl has given birth to female triplets - for the second time.

The girl, named only as Pamela, had her first set of female triplets aged 15, having first given birth to a son when she was just 14.

All seven children were born prematurely but without any kind of fertility treatment.

While doctors say the three newborns and their mother are well, the case has sparked debate across Argentina.

In bars and cafes, as well as the letters pages of newspapers, there has been widespread criticism of Pamela's alleged promiscuity.

Seeking more

Pamela's family already receives help from the provincial authorities, which donated land and built them a house when the first set of triplets was born.

Pamela's mother, who cleans houses to support her daughter and rapidly increasing number of grandchildren, says they will now seek more assistance from the government for the new additions to the family.

Some Argentines are arguing that perhaps what Pamela needs is more advice on contraception.

The teenager, who will be 17 on Monday, comes from the remote town of Leones in the central Argentine province of Cordoba.

ST. PETERS, Missouri —  A woman angry that her new puppy had died pushed her way into a dog breeder's home and repeatedly hit her on the head with the dead Chihuahua, authorities said.

The 33-year-old woman told police she had taken the puppy to a veterinarian, who said it was only 4 weeks old and needed to be returned to its mother. But before she could return the puppy, it died.

Early Wednesday, the woman went to the breeder's home, pushed her way inside and began fighting with the breeder as she tried to make her way to the basement to get another puppy, police said.

The breeder wrestled the woman out of her house to the front porch, where the woman then hit the breeder over the head numerous times with the dead puppy, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported, citing police.

As she drove away, the woman waved the dead puppy out of the car's sunroof and yelled threats at the breeder, police said. She later called the breeder and threatened her and her family, according to court records.

Police said they are considering felony burglary charges against woman and misdemeanor assault charges.

A pregnant Papua New Guinea woman who hung from a tree after being accused of sorcery gave birth to her baby while struggling to free herself, local media reports.

Nolan Yekum and her husband Paul were dragged from their house and hung from a tree by fellow tribesmen who accused them of sorcery after the couple's neighbour suddenly died.

Their ordeal occurred in Kilip village near Banz in Western Highlands Province, PNG's newspaper The National reported today.

The woman and her newborn baby girl, her third child, were doing well in Mt Hagen Hospital after two weeks in hiding, the report said.

Her husband said men entered their house in the middle of the night with a rope and tied it to their necks, accusing them of sorcery over their neighbour's death.

They were dragged outside and hung from a tree, he said.

"We managed to loosen the noose to get our feet on the ground ... we were able to free ourselves.

"My wife, who was about seven months pregnant, delivered the baby while struggling to free herself.

"It was a painful experience for me and her," Yekum said.

He said he pleaded with fellow villagers to wait for his neighbour's post-mortem and he accused local police of failing to act.

The couple vehemently denied practising sorcery.

German police dogs to wear shoes

Police dogs in the German city of Dusseldorf are being trained to wear shoes to protect them against injuries from broken glass.

Dusseldorf's team of 20 German and Belgian shepherds are at risk from smashed bottles in the city centre, a police spokesman said.

Training to help the dogs get used to the shoes, which arrived two weeks ago, is said to be going well.

It is hoped that dogs will be wearing them on patrol next month.

Minor injuries

The dogs perform routine protection duties and are also trained to find drugs and explosives.

Police spokesman Gunter Herring said the main risk was in Dusseldorf's old city centre, known for its late-night drinking.

"There are many people and sometimes in the late evening or during the night we have drunken people and they throw their bottles or glasses away," Mr Herring told the BBC News website.

The dogs have picked up minor injuries in the past, he said.

"Now we are conditioning the dogs to wearing their shoes to protect them in these areas from the glass and cuts."

The dogs are also at risk around the city's large football stadium, Mr Herring said.

The plastic shoes are freely available on the market and were not made specially for Dusseldorf police.

DJ forgets to hit 'live' button

A radio DJ spent an hour talking on his breakfast show without realising that listeners could not hear him.

Andy Greener, a volunteer DJ at Radio Teesdale, forgot to press a crucial button to make his show live.

Instead of his show, listeners heard 60 minutes of music and jingles as an automated back-up system kicked in to prevent radio silence.

He was alerted to his mistake when his station manager, listening at home, tried to call in.

Peter Dixon repeatedly tried to alert his DJ to his mistake.

But the former police officer, known to listeners as Mr Andy, was too busy presenting his show to answer the phone.

Eventually, Mr Dixon got through and Greener began broadcasting again.

Media attention

"I've been involved with community radio for about four years and I've been doing this three days a week for 10 months and have never done it before," Greener told the BBC News website.

He said he felt "a bit uncomfortable" with the media attention his mistake had attracted but that any publicity for the station was "absolutely brilliant".

"I'm starting to get to the stage of being a bit sick of it all, but I look forward to getting back on the air on Monday," he said.

"After this, I don't think I'll be forgetting again," he added.

The independent station, which broadcasts to 25,000 people in rural County Durham from the market town of Barnard Castle, has a community licence to broadcast locally.

Title: Woman sat on toilet seat for two years
Post by: stephenite on March 12, 2008, 10:16:39 PM
Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years - so long that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the boyfriend finally called police.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.

"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."

Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend.

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."

He told investigators he brought his girlfriend food and water, and asked her every day to come out of the bathroom.

"And her reply would be, 'Maybe tomorrow,'" Whipple said. "According to him, she did not want to leave the bathroom."

The boyfriend called police on February 27 to report that "there was something wrong with his girlfriend," Whipple said, adding that he never explained why it took him two years to call.

Police found the clothed woman sitting on the toilet, her sweat pants down to her mid-thigh. She was "somewhat disoriented," and her legs looked like they had atrophied, Whipple said.

"She said that she didn't need any help, that she was OK and did not want to leave," he said.

She was reported in fair condition at a hospital in Wichita, about 150 miles southeast of Ness City. Whipple said she has refused to cooperate with medical providers or law enforcement investigators.

Authorities said they did not know if she was mentally or physically disabled.

Police have declined to release the couple's names, but the house where authorities say the incident happened is listed in public records as the residence of Kory McFarren. No one answered his home phone number.

The case has been the buzz of Ness City, said James Ellis, a neighbour.

"I don't think anybody can make any sense out of it," he said.

Ellis said he had known the woman since she was a child but that he had not seen her for at least six years.

He said she had a tough childhood after her mother died at a young age and apparently was usually kept inside the house as she grew up. At one time the woman worked for a long-term care facility, he said, but he did not know what kind of work she did there.

"It really doesn't surprise me," Ellis said. "What surprises me is somebody wasn't called in a bit earlier."

Bear convicted for theft of honey  

Temptation was too great for the bear
The taste of honey was just too tempting for a bear in Macedonia, which repeatedly raided a beekeeper's hives.
Now it has a criminal record after a court found it guilty of theft and criminal damage.

But there was an empty dock in the court in the city of Bitola and no handcuffed bear, which was convicted in its absence.

The case was brought by the exasperated beekeeper after a year of trying vainly to protect his beehives.

For a while, he kept the animal away by buying a generator, lighting up the area, and playing thumping Serbian turbo-folk music.

But when the generator ran out of power and the music fell silent, the bear was back and the honey was gone once more.

"It attacked the beehives again," said beekeeper Zoran Kiseloski.

Because the animal had no owner and belonged to a protected species, the court ordered the state to pay for the damage to the hives - around $3,500 (£1,750; 2,238 euros).

The bear, meanwhile, remains at large - somewhere in Macedonia.

Courtney and his assistants waited on the pitch for 10 to 15 minutes while police vehicles surrounded the pitch.

Managers Tommy Wright and Paul Kirk had to be kept apart after squaring up and missiles were thrown towards the pitch.

A chair, a bottle and a leg of lamb in a red bag are all believed to have been thrown by angry Ballymena supporters.

If I remember correctly minder - that story is from 2005.

They did a documentary on it, and one theory was that the snake was opened by another predator (probably another alligator) after it ate the gator, which was too much for it and it either died because the gator was so big, or it wasnt fit to move and hence was easy prey for another animal.

Serious WTF moment.... from the BBC

An Australian man and his daughter have asked for understanding after revealing on national TV they have an incestuous relationship, and have a daughter.

John Deaves, 61, appeared on the TV show 60 Minutes with daughter Jenny, 39, and nine-month-old Celeste - to whom he is both father and grandfather.

Last month a judge banned them from having sex with each other and revealed they had a child in 2001 who died.

But they insisted on the programme that they were "normal intellectual adults".

Mr Deaves said they both "had careers, had a normal life like everybody else".

He added: "But [we have] fallen in love with each other when we are biologically related, when we've discovered each other later in life."

Mr Deaves had left the family home when his daughter Jenny was a baby, and did not see her again for 30 years.

When the couple met, in 2000, they began a sexual relationship.

Ms Deaves told 60 Minutes she began to see John as a man first and a father second.

"I was looking at him, sort of going, oh, he's not too bad. Like you might look at a man across the bar at a nightclub," she said.

"John and I are in this relationship as consenting adults. We are just asking for a little bit of respect and understanding."

The couple each pleaded guilty to two charges of incest last month and were banned from having sex with each other.

According to the judge's ruling in the case, the couple had a child in 2001 who died from congenital heart disease shortly after birth.

A man who broke his girlfriend's leg in a compensation scam designed to snare more than $200,000 has been jailed for three years.

Gordon Thomson, from Plymouth, UK, snapped his girlfriend Elizabeth Hingston's leg and then planned to sue his local council by claiming Ms Hingston had been injured by a falling wall, The Daily Mail reported.

But police found video footage of the incident, taken by Thomson on his mobile phone, the paper said.

It showed the 32-year-old unemployed chef placing Ms Hingston's left leg between two bricks and then jumping on it with both feet.

The sound of the sickening crack rang through Plymouth Crown Court as a judge watched the video, the paper said.

Ms Hingston, 28, agreed to the plot and drunk a bottle of Pernod, a licorice-flavoured liquor, and took valium to dull the pain. But she could be heard screaming in agony after her leg was broken, the paper said.

The couple split up a few weeks later. Ms Hingston required surgery and spent six months on crutches. The couple had reported the injury, mentioning a fallen wall, but never made a formal claim against the council, the paper said.

However, they had told a friend they hoped to win $211,000 (£100,000).

"The council were informed by the defendant the wall had collapsed and injured his girlfriend but he did not take it further than that," said prosecutor David Gittins.

Police found the video on Thomson's phone when he was arrested in a drugs raid the following month, Mr Gittins said.

"Thomson told police he had broken the leg but said she had gone on and on at him to do so.

"He said he did not think he would break her leg when he jumped on her but did so to shut her up. He said he asked a friend to film it on his mobile to show she had agreed to it.

"He said he kept it on his phone to show others to get a reputation for being violent and said it was a help in this world to have a reputation."

Ms Hingston, who was not charged, told police the idea had been hers.

"She said they arrived at the idea after seeing accident claim solicitors' advertisements on television for no-win, no-fee claims and so forth," said defendant Robert Linford.

"She was a volunteer and in the circumstances the culpability of this defendant is reduced very significantly.

"She comments that far from him taking advantage of her vulnerability, it was her who was exploiting his vulnerability."

When jailing Thomson, Judge Francis Gilbert said: "This is an extraordinary case. You broke Miss Hingston's leg deliberately at her request and with her consent in order to make a false claim against the city council.

"Whether or not she consented or suggested the scheme, it is no defence. You inflicted really serious harm to another person deliberately and with pre-meditation for a wholly financial motive."

Title: 8 year old files for divorce

Eight-year-old divorced after rape
Email Printer friendly version Normal font Large font April 17, 2008 - 9:57AM

A Yemeni judge dissolved the marriage of an 8-year-old girl to a man 22 years her senior, and the court today ordered her taken away from her father, who allegedly forced her into the marriage, the girl's lawyer said.

The lawyer, Shatha Ali Nasser, said the case is but one of thousands of under-aged girls forced into marriages in this poor tribal country at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula.

But the girl's story, which came to light when she took the unusual step and sought out a judge on her own in early April to file for divorce, has drawn headlines here.

The girl recounted her ordeal after the Wednesday ruling, speaking to reporters outside the courthouse in the Yemeni capital, San'a.

She said her father had forced her into an abusive marriage to 30-year-old Faiz Ali Thamer, who she told reporters constantly beat and raped her. The two-month union to Thamer was terminated in court Tuesday.

"I used to run from room to room to escape from him. But he would catch up with me, beat me and then would use me," the girl said, her tiny frame swallowed in an oversized robe and headscarf, standing with her lawyer.

The Associated Press is not publishing her name in line with its policy of not identifying rape victims.

The 8-year-old said that when she told her parents that her husband abused her, they refused to help her.

"They told me, 'Go to court. Complain to them. We are not going to interfere,"' she said.

The ruling judge Mohammed al-Qady said in court that he sympathised with the girl and was moved by the case from the start.

At the first session of the trial on April 9, her parents testified that they refused to divorce their daughter from Thamer and conceded to overlooking their daughter's complaints about the marriage.

Within a week, al-Qady ordered the couple be separated, and the marriage terminated because the girl "had not reached puberty", the judge said.

An article in Yemeni law allows parents to sign marriage contracts for children under the age of 15. However, the article states that the husband can only consummate the marriage when his wife reaches puberty.

"But we know that this is not what happened" in the girl's case, her lawyer Nasser said.

The girl's family was ordered to pay $US250 ($A266.30) as "compensation" to her ex-husband Thamer, although the judge did not specify the reason.

Thamer, who was briefly detained for questioning in April, was quoted Wednesday by a local independent English-language newspaper as saying he saw nothing wrong in being intimate with his wife.

"Yes, I was intimate with her, but I have done nothing wrong, as she is my wife and I have the right and no one can stop me," he told The Yemen Times. "But if the judge or other people insist that I divorce her, I will do it, it's OK."

Thamer is unlikely to be charged because Yemeni law does not recognise rape in a marriage.

It also doesn't provide for punishment if a marriage is consummated before a child-wife reaches puberty.

After the verdict, Nasser said she will make sure that the girl gets proper education.

Fcuk, that reminds me of my da. He broke his wrist about 10 years ago and went for an x-ray. The doctors looked at the x-ray photograph and noticed that he had a darning needle in his arm. He has no idea how it got there but he says he remembers that he put his arm down the side of the chair one day (probably dropped 1p) and felt a sharp pain in his arm. The pain only lasted a couple of seconds and there was no mark on his arm. A feckin' darning needle! 'Tis still in his arm today.

Wrong kidney removed from child 
 
The hospital has apologised for the error

A hospital in the Republic of Ireland has admitted removing the wrong kidney from a sick child.

The mistake, that led to a healthy kidney being removed, was described by Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin as an "unprecedented error".

The Dublin hospital said it had given its sincere apologies to the family.

The young child now faces regular dialysis unless a donor kidney can be found. An internal investigation is being carried out by the hospital.

The hospital described it as a "significant and regrettable medical error".

The child has been discharged from the hospital.

The hospital said its board of directors will consider the detail of the review and act where appropriate.

Our Lady's said the family was continuing to receive full support by the hospital staff and were happy to remain there for follow-up care.

Clinical errors


Irish Health Minister Mary Harney has indicated there may need to be an outside enquiry, even though she said she had total confidence in the internal review.

She said that unfortunately clinical errors occur in the best healthcare systems

The Labour Party said the findings of the hospital inquiry must be made public.

The party's Jan O'Sullivan said: "While I would accept that private aspects of this case must remain private, any findings of an investigation that indicates that there may have been systems failures or other shortcomings, should be published.

"The parents of this child, as well as parents of other children who are being treated for similar conditions in the hospital, need reassurance that this kind of incident does not recur."

Police officer accused of sex assaults also faces animal cruelty charges

Gannett News Service • April 23, 2008

MOUNT HOLLY — New charges involving sex acts with cows have been brought against a Moorestown policeman who last week was charged with sexually assaulting three girls.

Officer Robert Melia Jr., 38, of Moorestown, remained in the Burlington County Jail on Tuesday with bail of $510,000.

Superior Court Judge John Almeida raised the bail $10,000 as a result of the addition of four charges of cruelty to animals, a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Kevin Morgan, an assistant county prosecutor, said in court Tuesday that the new charges involve sex acts with cows between June and December 2006 at an undisclosed site in Southampton.

Melia and his former girlfriend, Heather Lewis, are charged with three counts of
aggravated sexual assault and one count of criminal sexual contact on three girls at his home between 2003 and 2006. Lewis, 32, of the 200 block of Stocktons Bridge Road, Pemberton Township, is in jail on $300,000 bail.

Drunk Darth Vader's Jedi assault 
 
A man posing as Darth Vader attacked a Star Wars fan, who had founded a Jedi Church, a court has heard.

Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, from Holyhead, Anglesey, admitted assaulting Barney Jones and cousin Michael with a metal crutch. They suffered minor injuries.

Hughes, who was drunk and dressed in a black bin bag, shouted "Darth Vader!"

Earlier, when Hughes failed to arrive on time, District Judge Andrew Shaw issued an arrest warrant, adding: "I hope the force will soon be with him."

In the event, Hughes turned up and the case at Holyhead magistrates court resumed.

The court heard he had jumped over a garden wall wearing the bin bag before the attack.

Outlining the case againt Hughes, prosectutor Nia Lloyd said Barney Jones had recently started the Jedi church in Holyhead - in honour of the Star Wars' good knights.

It had about 30 members locally and "thousands worldwide".

The cousins had been filming themselves playing with light sabres in the garden before the attack.

Hughes admitted two charges of common assault.

The court heard he has a "chronic alcohol problem" and had drunk the best part of a 10 litre box of wine.

Mrs Lloyd said: "He was wearing a black bin bag and a cape and had a metal crutch in his hand."

Mrs Lloyd said he was shouting "Darth Vader".

She added that Hughes hit Barney Jones over the head with the crutch, leaving him with a headache.

He then laughed and hit Michael Jones in the thigh, causing bruising.

Both men were left upset by the incident and they believed it was pre-planned.

She added that the pair believe "very strongly in the church and their religion".

Hughes could not remember the incident and only realised what had happened when he read about it in local newspapers, the court told.

Defending, Frances Jones said alcohol was "ruining his life" and he had no idea where he got the crutch from.

The court head Hughes had previous convictions, including affray, assault and disorderly behaviour.

The judge warned Hughes that jail remained a possibility before adjourning for pre-sentence reports until 13 May.

Lynchings in Congo as penis theft panic hits capital


 By Joe Bavier

KINSHASA (Reuters) - Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men's penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.

Reports of so-called penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where belief in traditional religions and witchcraft remains widespread, and where ritual killings to obtain blood or body parts still occur.

Rumours of penis theft began circulating last week in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo's sprawling capital of some 8 million inhabitants. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings.

Purported victims, 14 of whom were also detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear, in what some residents said was an attempt to extort cash with the promise of a cure.

"You just have to be accused of that, and people come after you. We've had a number of attempted lynchings. ... You see them covered in marks after being beaten," Kinshasa's police chief, Jean-Dieudonne Oleko, told Reuters on Tuesday.

Police arrested the accused sorcerers and their victims in an effort to avoid the sort of bloodshed seen in Ghana a decade ago, when 12 suspected penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs. The 27 men have since been released.

"I'm tempted to say it's one huge joke," Oleko said.

"But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it's become tiny or that they've become impotent. To that I tell them, 'How do you know if you haven't gone home and tried it'," he said.

Some Kinshasa residents accuse a separatist sect from nearby Bas-Congo province of being behind the witchcraft in revenge for a recent government crackdown on its members.

"It's real. Just yesterday here, there was a man who was a victim. We saw. What was left was tiny," said 29-year-old Alain Kalala, who sells phone credits near a Kinshasa police station.

Bulgarian farmer marries goat

Stoil Panayotov, a Bulgarian farmer who was luckless in love and had divorced his third wife, got married to a goat last March at a market in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, according to the Sun online newspaper.
As the newspapers says, Stoil first married when he was 18, but problems started when his mother and bride fell out. After a short second marriage, he married his third wife and stayed with her for nine years.
His third wife was not able to provide him with a child and he decided to quit their relationship.
“The goat has given birth to three kids and my wife to none” Panayotov explains. “So this deal was more profitable to the goat owner, I got a second-hand goat and he got a brand new wife”.

Title: Woman lives in closet for a year
Post by: stephenite on May 30, 2008, 06:32:39 AM
A Japanese man puzzled by food mysteriously disappearing from his refrigerator got a shock when he discovered a woman had been living in his home for months without permission, police said today.

The 57-year-old man who lives alone - or so he thought - in the western city of Fukuoka installed a security camera and called the police when he saw images of someone walking around his home while he was out.

"We searched the house in the man's presence. We found the woman in the closet," said a local police spokesman.

The woman, named as 58-year-old Tatsuko Horikawa, was found in a flat storage space only just big enough for a person to squeeze into lying down.

She had sneaked a mattress and several plastic bottles into the cubby hole, police said, adding that the women had been arrested.

"She told police that she had nowhere to live," the spokesman said. "She seems to have lived there for about a year, but not all the time."

It is unclear how she managed to enter the home undetected. Police suspect she might have been closet-hopping, moving from house to house.

THE HANGMAN
EXCLUSIVE Soham bodies farmer exports mobile gallows
By Roger Insall

A FARMER whose land was used to hide the bodies of murdered s choolgirls Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells is selling mobile execution gallows to terror regimes around the world.

David Lucas, 58, and his partner Brian Rutterford were horrified when the corpses of the Soham 10-year-olds were found in a ditch on their farm.

But the pair's pity and compassion does not extend to the victims who dangle from gallows which they export to brutal dictators like Zimabwe's President Mugabe and Libya's Colonel Gadaffi.

Bearded Lucas, 58, whose farm includes land near Lakenheath airbase, Suffolk, where evil Ian Huntley hid his victims, boasted to a People undercover investigator: "I guarantee these will do the job. You can get rid of as many as five people at a time.

"Each unit has five individual gallows and the beauty of it is you can use it over and over again."

Lucas converts covered lorry trailers into mobile execution chambers complete with trapdoors and ultra-strong nooses.

He also builds traditional hangman's scaffolds on platforms of solid oak and redwood. The cynical farmer explained: "These are used mainly as deterrents for outdoor public executions. They cost £12,000 each.

"I don't have one around to show you at the moment but I have got an oak one on order and am just sorting out the paperwork on that. They take me just over a week to make."

Posing as a representative of the Mugabe government, our investigator met Lucas at his gruesome death "factory" at Eldon Farm near Mildenhall, Suffolk.

At the entrance visitors are greeted by some of his grisly work - a towering mock-up of a hangman's gallows.

We told him we wanted new gallows for provincial prisons in Zimbabwe and admired British craftsmanship. Lucas said proudly: "I have two systems - the traditional platform gallows or the mobile units which I have designed myself."

He pointed to an articulated lorry trailer and said: "I build trap doors into the bottom and you can have them with the sides open so people can see.

"Depending on the length of the trailer you could use five or six gallows at the same time.

"They are expensive but you can use them over and over again. Say you only have one execution team - that's all you would need.

"They could travel around from village to village or prison to prison. It could save a lot of time." Lucas added: "They still use these in places like Libya and a few years ago I did some business with Zimbabwe so I know what your problems are."

There are no legal restrictions on the export of execution equipment from Britain but the EU plans to outlaw it from July 30.

When we confronted Lucas about his gruesome trade yesterday he said defiantly: "I'm not doing anything illegal.

"There is a demand for these gallows. I know not everyone will agree with what I'm doing but business is business."

His partner Rutterford - who helped discover the bodies of the Soham girls - told us: "I own Eldon Farm and have been helping David with the sale of gallows. We have a number of foreign countries who buy them."

Amnesty International's UK Director Kate Allen said: "It's appalling that a British company is apparently selling gallows to Mugabe's government.

"It makes a mockery of the UK's efforts to oppose the death penalty around the world."

Seven dead in Tokyo knife attack 
 
Witnesses say the attacker drove a truck into a crowd in Akihabara
A man armed with a knife has killed seven people and injured 11 others in central Tokyo, Japanese media say.

The incident occurred in the Akihabara district, a busy shopping area known as Electric Town that is popular with young people and tourists.

A suspect, said to be 25-year-old Tomohiro Kato, has been arrested.

Police spokesman Jiro Akaogi told reporters: "The suspect said he came to Akihabara to kill people. He said he was tired of life".

The scene of the stabbing in Tokyo

Earlier reports suggested Mr Kato could have been a gangster.

The dead include six men, ranging in age from 19 to 74, and a 21-year-old woman, Kyodo News said.

Reports say the suspect drove a rented truck into a crowd in the early afternoon and then began stabbing people at random.

James Slaymaker, a British man working in Japan, got to the area shortly after the stabbings. He described the scene to BBC News:

"As I walked down the street, I noticed there were a lot of police cars. I noticed there was a guy literally just lying there with tape on his eyes and blood pouring out of the side of him. I was appalled.

  When I walked round the corner I saw a woman lying on the floor

Kamran Zaffar, eyewitness


Eyewitness: 'Bodies on road'
In pictures: Tokyo stabbing

"I could see carnage - bodies everywhere. Some were conscious, some were not, lying by the side of the road and on the road. There were people everywhere, a lot of onlookers."

Another eyewitness told Kyodo News: ''The man jumped on top of a man he had hit with his vehicle and stabbed him with a knife many times. Walking toward Akihabara station, he slashed nearby people at random.''

Crime increase

 

The Akihabara district specialises in electronic gadgets and video games and is especially popular with people interested in comic books and distinctive fashion.

It is also home to one of the first shops to sell personal robots and robotics. The area is often crowded on weekends.

Once rare in Japan, there has been an increase in knife crime in recent years.

In January, a 16-year-old school boy armed with two kitchen knives injured several people on a crowded shopping street in Tokyo's Shinagawa Ward.

The Akihabara attack occurred on the same date that a man with a history of mental illness went through a primary school in 2001, stabbing children at random.

Eight children died and 15 pupils and teachers were injured in that attack, in a school in Ikeda, in the city of Osaka.

from the BBC

Plymouth Argyle goalkeeper Luke McCormick has been charged after two brothers died in a crash on the M6.

Arron and Ben Peak, aged 10 and eight, died when the vehicle they were travelling in crashed with his Range Rover in Staffordshire on Saturday.

Mr McCormick has been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, driving with excess alcohol and driving without insurance.

The boys' mother, Amanda Peak, said their family was "devastated".

Their 37-year-old father Philip is in hospital in a serious but stable condition with fractures to his neck and back, broken ribs, bruising and swelling to his lungs.

He was driving the Toyota Previa people carrier when the crash happened between junctions 15 and 16 of the southbound motorway near Keele services at shortly before 0545 BST.

The brothers and their father had been travelling from their home in Partington, Manchester, to Silverstone racing circuit for a day out.

'Parent's nightmare'

Mrs Peak, 30, was too distressed to speak at a police press conference on Sunday.

A statement was read out on behalf of her and her husband by police family liaison officer PC Andy Kavanagh.

It said Arron "loved life, especially football, at which he excelled, and Ben was a happy, loving son and brother".

"No parent should ever have to go through the nightmare that we have gone through.

 
The brothers and their father were going for a day out

"Nothing will ever compensate us for the loss we are feeling."

They appealed to be left alone to come to terms with the "life-changing event that has devastated our lives".

Three other people in the vehicle were all released from hospital on Saturday and returned home.

Police appealed on Sunday for anyone who saw the "manner of driving" of either vehicle before the collision or can help with the movements of anybody involved in the incident in the previous 24 or 48 hours.

Police said it appeared the collision had happened in lane two when the Toyota left the carriageway on the near side, going down an embankment and colliding with trees.

Mr McCormick was remanded in custody to appear before Fenton magistrates at 1000 BST on Monday.

This made me go WTF.

The neighbours -

I came home on friday after the weeks work looking forward to getting the work clothes off the back, changed, and away down the pub for a few pints. While looking out the back bedroom window i notice the neighbours wife away down the end of their garden cutting briars and brambes nettles etc. I was thinking, ah well nice to see them doing a bit as the back end of their garden was a holy show. So yer woman picks up a big armful of what she has cut down takes a few steps across the garden and f**ks the stuff she has cut over the fence into my garden. So im there waiting for Jeremy beadle to arise from the dead, and she goes and does it again. I walked downstairs and down the garden and says to her can you please explain to me why you are throwing this shit into my garden. So she lets on as usual that she cant speak English and calls the son out of the house. So i ask him "why is your mother throwing this stuff into my garden", "she didnt" was the reply. So with steam out the ears at this point i point out that a) i want a word with your father b) if it happens again i will call whatever authority necessary to get it sorted (believe me i'd say any type of authorities around them would but the willies up them) and c) get the 3 fence panels that border my property but are their responsibility fixed as they have been blown down since feckin January. In the meantime i went back into the house and their she was pulling it back out of my garden into theirs and she put it all in the green recycling bags (like your supposed to) and leave it out for collection.
So the father lands back in his taxi and i collared him. I just said "look i hate to have to say this because i find it embarrasing but your wife seems to think that its ok to throw rubbish in my garden, and if you fixed the fence like you were asked to 3 months ago then she would be less likely to do it." Yer man didnt utter a word in her defence, he just went into his garden and gave out a bit in whatever language it is, so i dont know what was said. Then they proceeded to mow their lawn but mowed around a 13 foot trampoline leaving grass a foot high underneath it. ::)
This is just the latest in a bizarre list of shit they have done.
What can i do?

Baby born with penis on back

THIS is the picture that will shock parents around the world - a baby born with a second penis on his BACK.

The tot was born to farmer dad Li Jun, 30, and his unnamed wife, who live in Hejian city in central China's Henan province.

Surgery

But he was rushed to Tianjin Childrens' Hospital on May 27 for surgery to remove his extra manhood.

The rare condition, the first for Tianjin Childrens' Hospital, is called fetus in fetu (FIF).

Doctors, who spent over three hours removing the extra penis on June 6, said he was fine following surgery.

From The Sunday Times June 29, 2008


A baby boy had both legs broken by supporters of President Robert Mugabe to punish his father for being an opposition councillor in Zimbabwe.

Blessing Mabhena, aged 11 months, was seized from a bed and flung down with force as his mother, Agnes, hid from the thugs, convinced that they were about to murder her.

She heard one of them say, “Let’s kill the baby”, before Blessing was hurled on to a bare concrete floor.

Blessing, who may never be able to walk properly, was one of the youngest victims of atrocities against the opposition party Movement for Democratic Change in the run-up to last Friday’s sham presidential election.

As Mugabe, 84, the only candidate in the election, prepared to be sworn in as president today, it emerged that his forces of terror plan to pulverise opponents to prevent them from ever threatening his leading Zanu-PF again.

Leaked minutes of the Joint Operations Command (JOC), which has orchestrated the violence since Mugabe lost a first round of voting in March, revealed that it is willing to wipe out opposition supporters.

A 10,000-strong youth militia loyal to the Zanu-PF has been created to enforce its wishes in case regular army units refuse, according to Zimbabwean human rights agencies.

“It’s a deliberate nationwide strategy to reoccupy space so all space is occupied by the Zanu of Mugabe,” said Jon Stewart, a director of the Zimbabwe Human Rights Forum.

Minutes of one JOC meeting show that supporters of Morgan Tsvangirai, the opposition leader, “will all be internally displaced. The target number is two million supporters”.

The plan is to brutalise people into backing Zanu-PF or fleeing the country. “They’re not going to stop,” said a maid in Marondera. “They’re saying they’ll do more beatings and killings until all the ‘traitors’ are flushed out.”

She and her neighbours were waiting for officials to check their fingers for red ink to make sure they had voted on Friday.

Woman drink-driver caught mother in bed with her husband

By Jimmy Woulfe, Mid-West Correspondent

A GRANNY was caught in bed with her son-in-law when her daughter walked in on the lovers, Limerick District Court has been told.


Devastated mother-of-three Fiona Porter, aged 24, was stopped for drink-driving some hours later.

Even though she was off the road for a previous drink-driving offence, she avoided jail due to what Judge Aeneas McCarthy described as “mitigating circumstances”.

Defence solicitor John Devane said the circumstances of the case were sad and Porter’s life was shattered after she found her mother and husband in bed. She later found out they had been having an affair for years.



He said Porter now lives alone with her children, aged five, three and six months, in Moyross.

Mr Devane said he had never come into court to stand up and give such a reason for a drink-driving offence.

Porter, he said, foolishly drove with drink after she found the two persons she trusted most in bed together. Mr Devane asked that the court be as lenient as possible due to the unusual circumstances.

“This is a woman who has been betrayed by loved ones,” he said. Sgt Peter Kelly of the Garda Traffic Corps told the court that he stopped a car being driven by Porter at 2.40am on June 29 last at Sexton Street North, Thomondgate. He arrested her after getting a strong smell of drink.

A breath test at Henry Street Garda station gave a reading of 73 over 100. Sgt Kelly said that at the time Porter was off the road, having been convicted of another drink-driving offence on April 22.

Mr Devane said Porter was just getting to grips with the earlier disqualification when she made the bedroom discovery after getting a bus home.

Foolishly, he said she drove off in her husband’s car and decided to go drinking before being stopped.

Judge McCarthy said as she drove with drink while disqualified he would impose a four-month sentence. Due to what he said were mitigating circumstances, he suspended the sentence on condition she is of good behaviour for two years.

He fined her €100 and disqualified her from driving for six years.

Summonses alleging she had no insurance and no licence were struck out

Boy slashes woman over cigarette 
A woman had her arm slashed by a 10-year-old boy after she refused to give him a cigarette.

The woman, in her 50s, was confronted by the boy and his friend outside Selhurst railway station in south London on Wednesday.

He tried to grab a lit cigarette from her mouth and attacked her when she shouted back at the pair.

Passers-by rushed to her aid as she bled heavily from the wound which was inflicted with a craft knife or razor.

CCTV studied

Officers are studying CCTV from the station and have taken statements from witnesses over the incident.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the boys had been described as black and about ten years old.

"We are investigating an assault on a woman that occurred at around 2.20pm on Wednesday July 23 outside Selhurst railway station," the spokesman added.

"The victim, a woman aged in her 50s, received a cut to her arm after two boys attempted to steal a cigarette from her mouth."

Man slashed transvestite's throat after sex, court hears

A then homeless man who had sex with a Filipino transvestite but then slashed his throat after discovering he was a man has had his sentence adjourned at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Vincent Murtagh (aged 23), now of Stanhope Green, Dublin 7 had been stopped on Dame Street while carrying a butcher's knife the day before he met the victim and told gardaí he wanted to threaten someone he had earlier had a fight with because he didn't want him "to think I was a f**got".

The victim, a male nurse, was returning from Zanzibar Nightclub, dressed in a miniskirt, high heels and makeup when he met Murtagh on June 23, 2007.

The two talked before the nurse invited Murtagh into an apartment where they engaged in oral and anal sex after which the victim revealed he was a man.

Murtagh left the next morning when the victim's friends arrived for that Saturday's Gay Pride Parade.

Garda Damien Egan told prosecuting counsel, Mr Vincent Heneghan BL, that the nurse was having a bath wen Murtagh returned on June 27. He let him in and resumed his bath while Murtagh watched pornography on the computer and masturbated.

Gda Egan said Murtagh went to the shops to buy beer and the victim sat and watched tennis on the computer but a short time later he heard someone sneaking up on him before his neck was slashed.

Murtagh cut him a second time as the victim screamed and grabbed at him, then slipped and fell in a pool of blood as Murtagh left the apartment.

Gda Egan said the Filipino nurse shouted out the window for help and tried to ring a ambulance but couldn't stop shaking while he wrapped a towel around his neck to stop the bleeding.

Paramedics arrived 15 minutes later and took him to hospital where he was given four pints of blood. Several arteries and veins had been cut and the doctor considered it a life-threatening wound because if the victim hadn't used the towel he would have died of a cardiac arrest. He had recovered with just a scar to his neck.

Murtagh went straight from the apartment to Store Street Garda Station and told gardaí what had happened. He brought them to the scene just as the victim was being put in the ambulance.

Defence counsel, Mr Patrick Marrinan SC, said the victim was such "a most convincing female" that the ambulance crew thought they were dealing with a lady.

Mr Marrinan said Murtagh was confused and "in great turmoil" after his first encounter with the victim and in the intervening days had signed himself into St James Hospital as a suicide risk.

Gda Liam Graynor said he stopped Murtagh on Dame Street on June 22, the day before he met the victim. He was running through traffic carrying a butcher's knife he had taken from a hot dog stand.

Gda Graynor said he chased him and there was a struggle before Murtagh was arrested and brought to Pearse Street Garda Station where he said he had asked a man for a cigarette but was told to "f**k off".

He said he squared up to this man "so he wouldn't think I was a f**got" but was hit in the face and he was going to find him again so "he wouldn't think I was soft".

Gda Graynor said Murtagh was drunk and had taken prescription drugs. He said he seemed very remorseful and had thanked gardaí for "stopping him from doing something a lot more serious".

Mr Marrinan said Murtagh was homeless at the time and was having problems with drugs. He said both of his parents had died as a result of heroin abuse.

Judge Desmond Hogan adjourned sentencing to allow the preparation of probation and psychiatric reports and remanded Murtagh on continuing bail.

Man decapitated on Canadian bus 
 
A man on a Greyhound bus travelling across the Canadian Prairies has killed and decapitated a fellow passenger.

An eyewitness said the victim was stabbed 50 or 60 times by the man sitting next to him, who then severed his head with a large knife.

The bus made an emergency stop to allow passengers to escape and the driver barred the door from the outside while waiting for the police to arrive.

The bus was travelling from Edmonton, Alberta, to Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Greyhound Canada said there were 37 passengers and a driver aboard the bus.

"All of a sudden, we all heard this scream, this bloodcurdling scream," passenger Garnet Caton told CBC television.

"The attacker was standing up right over the top of the guy with a large hunting knife - a survival, Rambo knife - holding the guy and continually stabbing him... in the chest area," Mr Caton added.

'Like a robot'

The attack continued as passengers fled the bus and waited for police on a desolate stretch of the TransCanada Highway near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.

"He calmly walks up to the front [of the bus] with the head in his hand and the knife and just calmly stares at us and drops the head right in front of us," Mr Caton said.

"There was no rage in him ... It was just like he was a robot or something," he added.

A man was taken into custody by police at around 0100 (0700 GMT) on Wednesday night, according to reports.

Mr Caton said he and a truck driver helped the bus driver bar the bus door to prevent the attacker from leaving.

When the attacker tried to drive the bus away, the driver disabled the vehicle.

"Some people were puking, some people were crying, other people were in shock ... everybody was running, screaming off the bus," Mr Caton said.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said only that a "major incident" took place on the bus as it drove along the Trans-Canada Highway en route to Winnipeg from Edmonton.

Other passengers said that the attacker and his victim were sitting at the back of the bus and the victim, described as around 20 years old, was listening to music through headphones.

The attack appeared to be unprovoked and it is thought the killer did not know his victim.

Man hijacked by 'hitchhikers'
 
 A man was hijacked by "hitchhikers" at Graskop in Mpumulanga, police said on Tuesday.

Police spokesperson Abie Khoabane said Fanas Motlule, 43, who was driving a VW Jetta offered a lift to a man and a woman who were hitchhiking along Graskop Road on Monday.

"After driving down the road for a while, the lady asked him to stop the car at a certain spot, because she wanted to get out of the vehicle.

"When he stopped the car, a third man who had been waiting on the road then pointed a gun at him."

Khoabane said the man told Motlule to get out of his vehicle, and then stole his cell phone, cash, and his driver's license, while the other two waited in the car.

"All three suspects then drove off, leaving him stranded, and are still at large."

Khoabane said police appealed to motorists not to give lifts to hitchhikers.

Police were investigating, he said.

There's one of those Brithday card shops near where I live.
I was walking down past it on thrusday at around 3pm and spotted a sign on the window saying "closing down sale" and a queue of maybe 15 people queued up outside it.  Curiosity got the better of me and I went over - the shop was shut and there wasn't much stuff left inside it.  Thought it very odd that people were queuing up for a closing down sale in Birthdays!
Walked past it on Friday evening and there was more people queued up outside it!! (Different people from Thursday) - shop was still shut and some stock left inside it.
Went past it yesterday again - no one around it - went over and looked in the window and it was completely cleared out.

Surely people weren't queuing for a closing down sale in Birthdays?  ???

Soup leak forces Ryanair plane to land

A plane was forced to land when a passenger had an extreme allergic reaction to a leaking jar of mushroom soup, it was revealed today.

The soup fell on the man from an overhead locker on a Ryanair flight to Dublin from Budapest.

He reportedly suffered allergic swelling in his neck and struggled to breathe, forcing staff to seek emergency medical treatment.

The bizarre incident happened on Monday, the same day as another Ryanair flight had to make an emergency landing in Limoges after suffering a sudden loss of cabin pressure.

And in a week of mid-air incidents, a Thomsonfly plane full of holidaymakers flying to Gatwick had to return to Croatia after a fire broke out in an oven only moments after take-off.

Ryanair said the jar contained a “vegetable oil/mushroom soup type substance”.

A spokeswoman said: “It is procedure when a passenger requires medical attention to divert to the nearest airport. The cabin crew and pilot take that decision.”

The Boeing 737, which was carrying nearly 800 passengers, diverted to Frankfurt Hahn airport in Germany where doctors could treat the man.

The plane was delayed for two hours before continuing its journey.

On the same day passengers feared for their lives as another Ryanair flight, going from Bristol to Spain, suffered a sudden drop in cabin pressure forcing the pilot to drop to 8,000 feet.

It landed safely at Limoges where sixteen passengers received medical treatment.

The Thomsonfly plane took off from Pula airport in Croatia yesterday and had to return after the fire broke out in a galley oven used to heat in-flight meals.

The plane was forced to turn around almost immediately after take off and was only in the air for seven minutes.

A spokesman said the fire was “immediately contained” and there was “no danger to passengers or crew”.

A replacement plane was flown from Manchester and the passengers delayed for eight hours.

A good old standby question to separate the townies from the people:

When cattle stand up from lying down, do they get up on their front or hind legs first?

(Explanatory note for city folk - you know cattle as "cows". Hind = back).


Eh, Cattle get up on their hind legs?

Soup leak forces Ryanair plane to land

A plane was forced to land when a passenger had an extreme allergic reaction to a leaking jar of mushroom soup, it was revealed today.

The soup fell on the man from an overhead locker on a Ryanair flight to Dublin from Budapest.

He reportedly suffered allergic swelling in his neck and struggled to breathe, forcing staff to seek emergency medical treatment.

The bizarre incident happened on Monday, the same day as another Ryanair flight had to make an emergency landing in Limoges after suffering a sudden loss of cabin pressure.

And in a week of mid-air incidents, a Thomsonfly plane full of holidaymakers flying to Gatwick had to return to Croatia after a fire broke out in an oven only moments after take-off.

Ryanair said the jar contained a “vegetable oil/mushroom soup type substance”.

A spokeswoman said: “It is procedure when a passenger requires medical attention to divert to the nearest airport. The cabin crew and pilot take that decision.”

The Boeing 737, which was carrying nearly 800 passengers, diverted to Frankfurt Hahn airport in Germany where doctors could treat the man.

The plane was delayed for two hours before continuing its journey.

On the same day passengers feared for their lives as another Ryanair flight, going from Bristol to Spain, suffered a sudden drop in cabin pressure forcing the pilot to drop to 8,000 feet.

It landed safely at Limoges where sixteen passengers received medical treatment.

The Thomsonfly plane took off from Pula airport in Croatia yesterday and had to return after the fire broke out in a galley oven used to heat in-flight meals.

The plane was forced to turn around almost immediately after take off and was only in the air for seven minutes.

A spokesman said the fire was “immediately contained” and there was “no danger to passengers or crew”.

I didn't know if this was a story for the grinds my gears thread or what the f**k but as it was a "what the f**k"  :o I'll put it here.

Was in a chinese restaurant the other night - really nice place, great grub etc - it's like an old house convertedin to the restaurant so you've got people eating in different rooms basically - very nice but the only downside is you can hear every word that is said. 
But anyway, me and someone I know was put in one section and there was only a couple (must have been in their 40s) there and they've a child with them that was no more than 7!
We were only sitting and they were aruging about who's parents visit more and when they last seen them etc but then they started to give the child a lecture on being the best! It started off with the mother going: "you can't rely on us, the only person you can rely on is yourself, we'll not always be around, you need to work hard and be successful"
wee girl: "I do work hard" (getting distressed)
mother: "no you don't, why is it that I have to tell you every evening to do your homework, you should come home and do it, you need to do extra work"
wee girl close to tears
mother:  "if you worked hard enough you'd be the top of the class, zoey isn't that clever but she works hard, if you worked as hard as her you'd be the best".
Wee girl: (crying at this stage) "I do work hard"
mother: "working hard isn't good enough, you need to be the best"
Father:  "you need to be more motivated"
Wee girl: "ok I'll try harder"

If anyone has ever seen "Parenthood" it was very similar to a scene in that!
Anyway that passed and they started to talk about the missing spare keys which, in minutes, turned in to a row because they were lost and he didn't put them in some bowl, she then near swung for him because he'd his finger in his mouth!

The weegirl then burst in to tears - bawling - mother asked her what was wrong and she says "I hate it when you argue" to which the mother responded with:
"that's pathetic, stop being so pathetic"  :o  :o  :o ...."if it's not working we'll just get joint custody of you"  :o

The child was no more than 7!  These were not chavs, these were middle aged, well dressed people - absoloute idiots who in the space of a hour had about 3 rows and verbally abused their daughter knowing that two strangers could hear every word they said.

Demi Moore in Bizarre Breast Milk Incident

And no, that's not the title of her latest film. And no, this isn't a story from the National Enquirer.

It is a story from The Sun, however. The tabloid's reporting that Christopher Ciccone - yes, Madonna's brother and the writer of the recent tell-all book about her - once witnessed Demi Moore lactating. In public. Over his lesbian friends. Go, as they say, figure.

"We went out and Demi was dancing up on me and humping me from behind. She was lactating at the time and she was squirting breast milk at my lesbian friends," reveals Christopher. "My friend Michelle called me the next morning and asked me: 'How do I get breast milk out of my black dress?' I replied: 'How the f*** would I know? Call Demi!'"

Erm, well, indeed. Or possibly: call the person who dry-cleaned Monica Lewinksy's dress that time. Either way, don't you just hate it when people lactate all over your clothes at parties? I know I do.

Elephant cured of drug addiction 
 
Asian elephants are considered an endangered species
An Asian elephant that became addicted to heroin after being fed bananas spiked with the drug is to return home after undergoing a detox programme.

The four-year-old animal, called Xiguang, received methadone injections for a year at five times the human dosage, state media said.

It was illegally captured by traders in 2005 in south-west China.

When police arrested the traders and freed the elephant, it was found to be suffering from withdrawal symptoms.

The elephant's eyes kept streaming and he made continuous trumpeting noises, the Beijing News newspaper's website reported.

It is thought that the traders fed the elephant bananas laced with heroin to capture and control it.

Xiguang was sent to a wild animal protection centre on Hainan island in south-west China for rehab, the official Xinhua new agency said

He is expected to arrive at a wildlife park in Kunming, capital of Yunnan province, on Saturday.

The Asian elephant is an endangered species, with only 25,600-32,750 left in the wild, according to the WWF conservation group.

Town freedom for minister blocked 
 
Mr Armstrong received death threats from loyalist paramilitaries
A clergyman forced out of Limavady in the 1980s will not be granted the freedom of the borough, after unionist councillors defeated a motion.

Reverend David Armstrong left the town after a backlash from within his Presbyterian church over his decision to shake hands with a Catholic priest.

He received loyalist death threats over his Christmas message of goodwill to Catholic counterpart Fr Kevin Mullen.

The vote for the SDLP motion was 8-6, but a two-thirds majority was needed.

After leaving the town, Mr Armstrong retrained as an Anglican minister and is now based at a Church of Ireland parish in County Cork.


In the name of god what are these guys at?

My wife is a friend of Reverend Armstrong, he lives near us and we met him through a neighbour who is a member of his congregation.  A more pleasant kind man you will not find.  He is helping my wife organise a concert for school children in the Cork Opera house and his name among the people on the ground in community relations is well repected, so never worry what the bitters might think.

He would find it extremely amusing that he is the topic of discussion on a GAA board!

Town freedom for minister blocked 
 
Mr Armstrong received death threats from loyalist paramilitaries
A clergyman forced out of Limavady in the 1980s will not be granted the freedom of the borough, after unionist councillors defeated a motion.

Reverend David Armstrong left the town after a backlash from within his Presbyterian church over his decision to shake hands with a Catholic priest.

He received loyalist death threats over his Christmas message of goodwill to Catholic counterpart Fr Kevin Mullen.

The vote for the SDLP motion was 8-6, but a two-thirds majority was needed.

After leaving the town, Mr Armstrong retrained as an Anglican minister and is now based at a Church of Ireland parish in County Cork.


In the name of god what are these guys at?


 



he is our local PP now.

another bad parenting story? who o why do people continue to do this?

A two-year-old has been taken into the care of social services after being found alone during a house fire.

The boy was rescued from a first floor room after firefighters were called to a maisonette in Deptford, south London, on Friday morning.

The child was taken to hospital for medical checks, before being taken away to be cared for by social services.

The boy's mother, said to be in her 40s, was arrested and later bailed on suspicion of child neglect.

She must return to a south London police station in December.

The fire brigade was called after the smoke alarm was activated.

The BBC's Barnie Choudhury has been inside the maisonette and said there is no sign of a major fire.

A 45-year-old man, thought to be a member of the public who tried to get into the maisonette to help the child, was treated in hospital for the effects of breathing smoke.

The fire, which damaged the ground floor of the home, was brought under control in 20 minutes, firefighters said.

this brought a tear to my eye, and made me very angry. This comes with a caution  :'(

Baby killer given life sentence 
 
Baby Amy had been treated cruelly in the weeks before her death
A father who murdered his baby daughter by snapping her spine will spend at least 22 years in prison.

James Howson, 25, was given a life sentence at Leeds Crown Court for the murder of 16-month-old Amy at their home in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

He was convicted of murder on Tuesday after a jury heard he held Amy over his knee and broke her back in two.

Amy's mother Tina Hunt, 26, was given a 12-month suspended sentence after admitting child cruelty.

Sentencing Howson, the judge, Mrs Justice Cox, said: "This was, in my view, a chilling and brutal attack.

"The bone was completely dislocated, resulting in spinal shock, rapid unconsciousness - mercifully - and to death."

'Truly horrific'

During the trial Howson blamed Ms Hunt, saying she may have been responsible for Amy's death.

But the judge said: "The jury was satisfied, on the clearest of evidence, that it was you who deliberately inflicted truly horrific injuries upon your defenceless little daughter, Amy, from which she died within a few hours."

The judge also detailed other occasions in the weeks leading up to the murder in December last year when Howson "cruelly and deliberately assaulted Amy", leaving her with multiple fractures to her arms and legs.

 
The judge said Howson had shown no remorse

The court heard how Howson had a troubled history and had been violent towards women when he was young, yet he had no previous convictions.

Howson showed no emotion as he was led from the dock.

The judge said to him: "I have not seen the slightest evidence of remorse from you for what you did."

Hunt's 12-month sentence was suspended for two years.

She admitted the child cruelty charge on the basis that she did nothing to alert the authorities to her daughter's plight.

But the judge said: "Your level of culpability falls at the lowest end of the scale", after hearing how Howson completely dominated her and was often violent.

She said Hunt was also in the lowest 1% band of intelligence.

Outside court Amy's grandfather, Colin Hunt, said: "Life should mean life but what can you say? That's justice for you.

"Twenty-two years is all right but it won't bring Amy back, will it?

"I have 16 grandchildren. They are all beautiful and he's taken one away. I idolise them.

"I'm very angry. If I could have done something I would have. She was my granddaughter."

Cannibal cult mother who skinned son and made him eat his own flesh gets 9 years in jail

A cannibal cult mother who tortured her son in a locked cellar while relatives skinned him and forced him to eat his own flesh has been jailed for nine years.

Klara Mauerova, 31 - a member of a sinister religious cult and her sister Katerina led the sickening torture of her eight-year-old son Ondrej and his ten year-old brother Jakub.

A court in Brno in Czech Republic heard how relatives partially skinned Ondrej and forced him to eat his own flesh.
Enlarge    Klara Mauerova, right, has been jailed for nine years for abusing her sons

The judge also jailed Katerina, 35, for ten years for her role in the sickening abuse.

The two boys had told judges how their mother and relatives had stubbed cigarettes out on their bare skin, whipped them with belts, and tried to drown them. They were also sexually abused and forced to cut themselves with knives.

The terrified youngsters said they were kept in cages or handcuffed to tables and made to stand in their own urine for days.
Enlarge    Klara Mauerova, far left, and fellow torturer Barbara Skrlova are pictured with Klara's sons Jakub, 10, foreground, and Ondrej, 8


The sick sisters - both members of weird religious cult the Grail Movement - refused to reveal why they tortured the brothers.

But state prosecutor Zuzana Zamoravcova said: 'Their aim was to make the boys blindly serve their religious goals.'
Judge Pavel Goth said as he sentenced the women: 'Their aim was to create a person with a completely broken will. Ondrej and Jakub were repeatedly psychologically and physically tyrannised and held in locked rooms.'
Enlarge    Mauerova's sister Katerina was jailed for ten years for her part in the torture

Another defendant, 34-year-old Barbora Skrlova, was also jailed for five years for her part in the torture. Three others who took part in the abuse were also given jail terms.
Hana Basova, 28, and Jan Skrla, 25, were sentenced to seven years each while another man, Jan Turek, was jailed for five years.

Skrlova had posed as an innocent 13-year-old girl when police arrived to free the boys. She later ran away to Norway but was traced earlier this year by Czech police who brought her back to face trial.
  Barbara Skrlova, seen here in a beanie hat, is pictured after her arrest in Norway.  She posed as a 13-year-old girl to escape capture
Mauerova at first admitted abusing her children but she said she had been manipulated by her sister Katerina and Skrlova.

All three of them had been part of the Grail Movement cult which claims to have hundreds of followers in Britain as well as tens of thousands of others world wide.

The sick abuse was discovered when a neighbour installed a TV baby monitor to keep watch on his new daughter.

But it picked up the signal from an identical monitor next door showing one of the victims beaten, naked and chained in a cellar.

Mauerova had installed it so she could gloat over her victims' suffering from the comfort of her kitchen.

The defendants are expected to launch an appeal.

Sydney pub row erupts after faeces found in icecream
   

 
 1 hr 47 mins agoSYDNEY (Reuters) – A bitter row has broken out between one of Sydney's largest tourist pubs and a family of five who accused chefs of serving human excrement in their gelato after they complained about noise during a football match.

State government food minister Ian Macdonald confirmed on Wednesday that frozen faecal matter had been found in a serving of chocolate gelato offered to placate pub patron Steve Whyte and his wife Jessica, who became "violently ill" after eating it.

"The stench went through my nostrils, I retched and spat it into the napkin," Jessica Whyte told the Daily Telegraph newspaper, recounting what local media are calling "gelati-gate."

The tainted sweet was allegedly served up at the Coogee Bay Hotel, one of Sydney's largest and most popular beachfront hotels, located just a few minutes south of Bondi Beach.

The pub has denied serving excrement to the Whyte's after they complained they were unable to hear a televised football game due to loud music, with both the chef and restaurant manager volunteering for DNA tests to prove their innocence.

Both sides have accused the other of money seeking, with the Whyte's claiming they were offered A$5,000 (2,000 pounds) in hush money by pub General Manager Tony Williams, while they in turn were accused of trying to negotiate up to A$1 million in damages.

The argument over accusations of "kitchen revenge" has shocked Australians, leading into an expected searing, gelato-friendly summer, capturing national headlines for days.

Macdonald said DNA analysis would now be done to determine if the sample was of human or animal origin as police and food authorities investigate the case.

"Obviously, we are keeping an open mind and do not want to pre-empt this investigation in any manner," he said.

The eastern Sydney hotel is standing by staff and on Tuesday said its own lab tests on the chocolate gelato tub had found no evidence of contamination.

Japanese man petitions to marry comic book wife

 A JAPANESE man has enlisted hundreds of people in a campaign to allow marriages between humans and cartoon characters, saying he feels more at ease in the "two-dimensional world".

Comic books are immensely popular in Japan, with some fictional characters becoming celebrities or even sex symbols.

Marriage is meanwhile on the decline as many young Japanese find it difficult to find life partners.

Taichi Takashita launched an online petition aiming for one million signatures to present to the government to establish a law on marriages with cartoon characters.

Within a week he has gathered more than 1000 signatures through.

"I am no longer interested in three dimensions. I would even like to become a resident of the two-dimensional world," he wrote.

"However, that seems impossible with present-day technology. Therefore, at the very least, would it be possible to legally authorise marriage with a two-dimensional character?"

Befitting his desire to be two-dimensional, he listed no contact details, making it impossible to reach him for comment to explain if his campaign is serious or tongue-in-cheek.

But some people signing the petition are true believers.

"For a long time I have only been able to fall in love with two-dimensional people and currently I have someone I really love," one person wrote.

"Even if she is fictional, it is still loving someone. I would like to have legal approval for this system at any cost," the person wrote.

Japan only permits marriage between human men and women and gives no legal recognition to same-sex relationships.

Japan's fans of comic books, or "manga," sometimes go to extremes.

Earlier this month, a woman addicted to manga put out an online message seeking to kill her parents for asking her to throw away comic books that filled up three rooms.

Australia: No residency for boy with Down syndrome
     

Associated Press Writer Tanalee Smith, Associated Press Writer – 19 mins ago AP – German doctor Bernhard Moeller, right, with his wife Isabella and son Lukas, 13, are pictured at their … SYDNEY, Australia – A German doctor hoping to gain permanent residency in Australia said Friday he will fight an immigration department decision denying his application because his son has Down syndrome. Bernhard Moeller came to Australia with his family two years ago to help fill a doctor shortage in a rural area of Victoria state.

His temporary work visa is valid until 2010, but his application for permanent residency was rejected this week. The immigration department said Moeller's 13-year-old son, Lukas, "did not meet the health requirement."

"A medical officer of the Commonwealth assessed that his son's existing medical condition was likely to result in a significant and ongoing cost to the Australian community," a departmental spokesman said in a statement issued Thursday by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

"This is not discrimination. A disability in itself is not grounds for failing the health requirement — it is a question of the cost implications to the community," the statement said.

Moeller said he would appeal the decision.

"We like to live here, we have settled in well, we are welcomed by the community here and we don't want to give up just because the federal government doesn't welcome my son," he told reporters.

Moeller has powerful supporters. Victorian Premier John Brumby has pledged to support the family's appeal, and federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon said Friday she would speak to the immigration minister about the case.

Roxon said the case must go through proper channels — an appeal to the Migration Review Tribunal and then the immigration minister — but that "there is a valid reason for this doctor and his family to be eligible to stay here in Australia."

"As a government, we understand the importance of having doctors working in our rural and regional communities and we support them in many ways and continue to do this," Roxon said.

Don McRae, director of clinical services at Wimmera Health Care Group, said the hospital had invested a lot of time and energy in recruiting the German specialist to Horsham, about 100 miles northwest of Melbourne.

"We were very surprised by the decision," he said of the immigration department's rejection. "It's distressing for Dr. Moeller's family and distressing for the community who have welcomed him and relied on his medical services."

Immigration Minister Chris Evans has no power to intervene in the case until the review tribunal or a court upholds the department's decision.

David Tolleson, executive director of the Atlanta-based National Down Syndrome Congress, said he was disappointed by the decision.

"What is the cost implication to the community of a doctor shortage?" Tolleson asked. "I assume the son had the same costs for the last two years and they were happy to have the family and use the dad as a doctor."

Down syndrome, caused by an extra chromosome, is characterized by mental retardation of varying degrees. Those with Down syndrome also can have other problems: Nearly half will have a heart defect, some serious enough to require surgery soon after birth.

Tolleson said that people with Down syndrome have a spectrum of abilities.

"Some need more support, some go on to graduate from college with a four-year degree, and most are somewhere in between," he said.

The immigration department said it appreciates Moeller's contribution to the community but said it must follow the relevant laws in considering residency applications.

"If we did not have a health requirement, the costs to the community and health system would not be sustainable," the statement said.

More than 150,000 migrants settled in Australia in 2007-08, the department said.

Shortages of medical practitioners in rural parts of Australia have led a number of recent government initiatives to boost the numbers of doctors and nurses nationwide.

E-mail error ends up on road sign

visitors can't see pics , please register or login

The English is clear enough to lorry drivers - but the Welsh reads "I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated."

When officials asked for the Welsh translation of a road sign, they thought the reply was what they needed.

Unfortunately, the e-mail response to Swansea council said in Welsh: "I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated".

So that was what went up under the English version which barred lorries from a road near a supermarket.

"When they're proofing signs, they should really use someone who speaks Welsh," said journalist Dylan Iorwerth.

Swansea Council became lost in translation when it was looking to halt heavy goods vehicles using a road near an Asda store in the Morriston area

All official road signs in Wales are bilingual, so the local authority e-mailed its in-house translation service for the Welsh version of: "No entry for heavy goods vehicles. Residential site only".

The reply duly came back and officials set the wheels in motion to create the large sign in both languages.

The notice went up and all seemed well - until Welsh speakers began pointing out the embarrassing error.

Welsh-language magazine Golwg was promptly sent photographs of the offending sign by a number of its readers.

Managing editor Mr Iorwerth said: "We've been running a series of these pictures over the past months.

"They're circulating among Welsh speakers because, unfortunately, it's all too common that things are not just badly translated, but are put together by people who have no idea about the language.

"It's good to see people trying to translate, but they should really ask for expert help.

"Everything these days seems to be written first in English and then translated.

"Ideally, they should be written separately in both languages."

A council spokeswoman said: "Our attention was drawn to the mistranslation of a sign at the junction of Clase Road and Pant-y-Blawd Road.

Other confusing signs

"We took it down as soon as we were made aware of it and a correct sign will be re-instated as soon as possible."

The blunder is not the only time Welsh has been translated incorrectly or put in the wrong place:

• Cyclists between Cardiff and Penarth in 2006 were left confused by a bilingual road sign telling them they had problems with an "inflamed bladder".

• In the same year, a sign for pedestrians in Cardiff reading 'Look Right' in English read 'Look Left' in Welsh.

• In 2006, a shared-faith school in Wrexham removed a sign which translated the Welsh for staff as "wooden stave".

• Football fans at a FA Cup tie between Oldham and Chasetown - two English teams - in 2005 were left scratching their heads after a Welsh-language hoarding was put up along the pitch. It should have gone to a match in Merthyr Tydfil.

• People living near an Aberdeenshire building site in 2006 were mystified when a sign apologising for the inconvenience was written in Welsh as well as English.

A British woman is filing for divorce after discovering her husband has been virtually philandering in Second Life .

28-year-old Amy Taylor cited unreasonable behaviour in the petition for divorce, claiming that she had walked in on her husband having sex with another woman.

On the computer. In a game.

In an ironic twist to the tale, Taylor met (estranged) hubby David Pollard, in a chatroom back in 2003, when an online romance blossomed into marriage, leading her to up sticks from London to move down to the wilds of Cornwall.

"I went mad - I was so hurt. I just couldn't believe what he'd done," Amy said, of finding her feckless hubby having pretend sex in a game with a stranger.

"I looked at the computer screen and could see his character having sex with a female character. It's cheating as far as I'm concerned."

"The solicitor wasn't at all surprised - she said it was her second divorce case involving Second Life that week," she added.

Amy's Second Life alter-ego was called Laura Skye. Pollard's was called Dave Barmy. Amy has now met a new man. In World Of Warcraft .

Albino girl killed for body parts 
 
Many people with albinism are living in fear in Tanzania
A six-year-old albino girl in Burundi has been found dead with her head and limbs removed, in the latest killing linked to ritual medicine.

Albinos in the region have been targeted because of a belief peddled by witchdoctors that their body parts can be used for magic potions.

The girl, who was attacked on Sunday, was the sixth person with albinism to be killed in Burundi since September.

There have also been a number of attacks in neighbouring Tanzania.

The latest attack took place in Burundi's eastern province of Ruyigi.

The BBC's Prime Ndikumagenge in Burundi said the child and her family had only just returned to their family home.

Armed attackers broke into the family home and tied up the girl's parents before shooting her in the head, local officials say.

They had been among a group of about 50 people with albinism to have fled to a provincial centre because they feared for her safety.

The head of the Burundi Albinos' Association, Kasim Kazungu, says people with albinism had not suffered any discrimination until other Burundians heard about the lucrative trade in albino body parts in neighbouring Tanzania.

Last week, police in south-western Tanzania arrested a man who was attempting to sell his albino wife to Congolese traders.

Two mothers in western Tanzania were also attacked with machetes after gangs failed to find their albino children.

Michael Jackson 'converts to Islam and changes name to Mikaeel'

Michael Jackson wore an abaya, a traditional Arab women's veil, in Bahrain

The singer, who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, converted to Islam in a ceremony at a friend's house in Los Angeles.

He is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated.

According to The Sun, the ceremony took place while Jackson, 50, was recording an album at the home of Steve Porcaro, a keyboard player who composed music on his Thriller album.

The former Jackson 5 star was counselled by David Wharnsby, a Canadian songwriter, and Phillip Bubal, a producer, who have both converted.

A source said Jackson had appeared a "bit down" and added: "They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea.

"An imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief."

Last year his brother, Jermaine Friday, suggested Jackson would convert having taken an interest in Islam since Friday's conversion in 1989.

"When I came back from Mecca I got him a lot of books and he asked me lots of things about my religion and I told him that it's peaceful and beautiful," said Friday.

"He read everything and he was proud of me that I found something that would give me inner strength and peace.

"I think it is most probable that Michael will convert to Islam.

"He could do so much, just like I am trying to do. Michael and I and the word of God, we could do so much."

A man caught near Nobbys Beach with his penis in a pasta sauce jar led police on a 20 kmh car chase, Newcastle Local Court heard yesterday.

Police drew their weapons when they suspected Keith Roy Weatherley, 46, was armed.

Instead, they found him partially clothed with his genitals in a jar, a police statement said.

Weatherley, of Promontory Way, North Arm Cove, attracted attention parked in a no-stopping zone before noon on October 26.

Police believed Weatherley was doing something with his hands in his lap and thought that he might have a weapon.

Weatherley saw the police and drove away, despite them flashing their lights.

The chase lasted five to 10 minutes, with a top speed of just 20 kmh, before Weatherley was stopped at Centenary Drive, Newcastle. He refused to leave the car.

Four officers used batons and capsicum spray to remove him.

They found a 750-millilitre jar around his penis and noted that Weatherley attempted to continue "pleasuring himself in between bouts of wrestling".

A search of his car uncovered pornography, a home-made sex aid, women's stockings and a Jack Russell terrier.

Weatherley pleaded guilty to offensive behaviour, resisting police and disobeying a police direction.

Magistrate Elaine Truscott asked Weatherley, who represented himself, why he behaved the way he did.

He said he resisted police because he was trying to make himself "decent".

He was fined $600 for offensive behaviour and convicted of the other two offences without further action taken.

In the name of all that is holy how did this go on for so long? another dispressing story

Rapist father gets life sentence 
A man who fathered nine children by raping his two daughters has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 19-and-a half years.

The 56-year-old, from Sheffield, had pleaded guilty to 25 rapes and four indecent assaults.

The attacks led to 19 pregnancies, Sheffield Crown Court heard.

Ian Keates, for the Crown Prosecution Service in South Yorkshire, said: "The abuse to which the women have been subjected is beyond comprehension."

Nine of the children were born, two of whom died on the day of their birth. The other 10 pregnancies were miscarried or aborted.

Mr Keates added: "In his treatment of his victims the defendant sank to the most profound depths of depravity."

'Russian roulette'

Sheffield Crown Court was told he "took pleasure" in knowing the harm he was doing to his daughters.

The court heard that the sexual abuse started when the two sisters reached the age of eight but that they only realised the other was being abused when they became pregnant some years later.

The court heard that on a number of occasions doctors advised the women to stop having children by the same father.

On one occasion a doctor asked one of the women whether her father was also the father of her child. She flatly denied the accusation.

Nicholas Campbell QC said: "The defendant played Russian roulette as to whether there would be complications in the pregnancies and with the health of his daughters."

  When either one of his victims tried to end the sexual abuse, he threatened to kill them and their children

Nicholas Campbell QC
Their father, who cannot be named for legal reasons, threatened them with a "real hiding" if they refused to have sex with him.

Mr Campbell said: "All the defendant's children spoke of his domination over their family life. He was tall and strongly built."

Mr Campbell said the father "liked to think that he was the hard man".

He added: "All the family were frightened of him. When they heard his car pulling up outside the house, the children and their mother ran to their respective rooms.

"His younger daughter told of the frightening habit her father had of putting her head next to the flames of their gas fire and that when she struggled to get away on certain occasions she burnt her eyes.

"The sisters recall that they were kept from school when they bore physical injuries. The defendant also ensured that his family were kept isolated and that there were very few visitors to the home.

"Rather than having babysitters, the children recall being locked in their rooms when their mother and father went out."

Childline plea

On one occasion, the women called Childline and asked for a guarantee that they could keep their children, but when one was not offered they ended the call.

Mr Campbell said: "When either one of his victims tried to end the sexual abuse, he threatened to kill them and their children, and when they threatened to tell police, he said they would not be believed.

"He said that if they went public then the children would be taken away from them.

"All the time, when the sisters were challenged about the paternity of their children, they would cover it up.

"They started taking the pill. He said they should not be taking it and, just as they felt unable to avoid his sexual abuse, they obeyed.

"They spoke of his pleasure at fathering their children whilst at the same time they had fears for the welfare of these children and how they would cope."

Scrap dealer with no head for heights hits two bridges

The truck which caused chaos in Dublin city centre yesterday after its driver hit two bridges while carrying a precarious high load

Friday November 28 2008

Paul Melia

A SCRAP dealer who loaded his truck with four clapped-out cars caused mayhem in Dublin city centre yesterday when he struck two bridges in the space of half an hour.

When questioned by Iarnrod Eireann engineers, the driver allegedly gave his address as being at a roundabout in Santry and turned out to be driving with no insurance.

Our pictures show the dangerous load he was carrying, with four cars precariously piled on top of each other and held in place by a steel arm and a length of rope.

The first strike happened at 2pm when staff in Iarnrod Eireann headquarters heard a loud bang as the truck hit the Amiens Street bridge. After failing to travel underneath the first time, the driver reversed and made a second attempt only to be thwarted by his high load.

"He tried to go again and all the cars behind were beeping at him saying he wouldn't make it," a rail spokeswoman said.

"He did a U-turn, which caused huge problems, and went back around on to the quays."

But when he met the Loopline bridge at the Custom House it was a case of third time unlucky. Again, he struck the bridge, but instead of reversing and trying to go another way he gunned his engine and tried unsuccessfully to squeeze his way through.

"He got out and jumped on to the cars to try and stamp them down," the spokeswoman continued.

"He made contact with the Custom House bridge and got stuck but he kept going. To be going around the city with that load is just crazy."

She added that there was no structural damage to either bridge and that the company was considering whether to take a prosecution.

Sand and gravel company Drones Stones, based in Northern Ireland, said it had sold the truck three months ago and did not know the current owner.

No arrest was made and gardai from Store Street were yesterday examining the circumstances of the collision.

Black Friday death at a Wal-Mart


By Yael T. Abouhalkah, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist

A crowd of shoppers trampled a store worker to death while rushing toward Black Friday specials at a Long Island Wal-Mart.

It's an appalling event, made even more newsworthy by the fact that American shoppers have been encouraged in recent days to make sure they get out and spend money to boost the economy.

Obviously, no one wanted anything like this event to occur.

Witnesses said a worker at a Wal-Mart in Long Island died after he tried to hold shoppers back before the scheduled 5 a.m. opening of the store.

But the stock clerk was run over by "unruly crowds," according to a report in the New York Daily News.

"As he gasped for air, shoppers ran over and around him," the paper reported.

Police closed the store during the investigation of the death.

That decision probably angered a lot of shoppers but it was the proper thing to do.

Minister told of loyalist threat 
 
Conor Murphy said police told him of the threat
Regional Development Minister Conor Murphy has said he has been told of an attempt to murder him at the weekend.

The Newry and Armagh Sinn Féin MP said police told him loyalist paramilitaries calling themselves the Orange Volunteers were behind the attempt.

He said he was told the group claimed to have carried out the murder bid "over the weekend in the Newry area".

The police said they "do not comment on the personal security arrangements of individuals".

"Where we become aware that someone needs to review their security we take steps to inform them immediately. We never ignore anything that would put anyone at risk," a spokesman said.

Mr Murphy said that as a "long-time" member of Sinn Féin he was used to such threats, but added that it was an issue of concern for his family.

"This is part and parcel of being involved with Sinn Féin," he said.

"Unfortunately for too many of our members it has cost them their lives and I think we are always conscious of that."

Belfast Churchgoers Challenge GORGOROTH's Anti-God Message; Video Available - Dec. 4, 2008 
 
Video footage of a group of Free Presbyterians protesting at GORGOROTH's November 23, 2008 concert at Limelight in Belfast, Northern Ireland can be viewed below (clip shot by GORGOROTH guitarist Teloch).

The Rev David McIlveen reportedly led outraged churchgoers to the club.

Speaking to the News Letter in September 2008, McIlveen said about the Norwegian black metal band's appearance in Belfast, "This reprehensible group's influence on the young may push them to evil acts and lead to the fragmentation of family life.

"Organizers need to rethink their decision to give them concert time in Belfast as the majority of people in Northern Ireland will be highly offended by their apparent anti-God message.

"Anything that is detrimental to the Christian belief must be challenged and I will be doing that."

But Limelight publicist Ian Wilson countered: "We book bands with absolutely no concern about their religious or political viewpoints. It's just music."

According to GORGOROTH's lead singer Gaahl, the goal of black metal is to turn its practitioners into "the true Satan."

In an interview with The Observer in 2005, he said: "Black metal was never meant to reach an audience. It was purely for our own satisfaction. Something entirely self-centered.

"The shared goal was to become the true Satan; the elite human, basically. The elite are above rules."

Gaahl stoked controversy in a Canadian documentary called "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey", in which he spoke out in support of a spate of arson attacks on churches linked to the Norwegian metal scene.

He said: "Church burnings and all these things are, of course, things that I support 100 percent and it should have been done much more and will be done much more in the future.

"We have to remove every trace from what Christianity and the Semitic roots have to offer this world. Satanism is freedom for the individual to grow and to become Superman. Every man who is born to be king becomes king. Every man who is born to be a slave doesn't know Satan."

Someone is going to have a good Christmas...........



Armed robbers have stolen at least 80m euros ($102m, £70m) worth of jewels from one of Paris's most prestigious jewellery shops, police say.

As many as four robbers, two disguised as women, stormed Harry Winston's store near the Champs-Elysee and stole nearly all its valuables.

They spoke French and another language, seemed well informed and knew the names of some of the staff, police say.

The store was hit by another robbery almost 14 months ago.

Armed robbers then stole an estimated 10m euros ($13m) worth of valuables.

Staff hurt

The BBC's Alasdair Sandford, in Paris, says the latest robbery is one of the country's most serious for decades.

Around 10 people and 15 staff were in the store on Thursday afternoon when the robbers entered.

Police said some were disguised as women and appeared to know their way around - addressing some of the staff by their names and identifying where stock not on display was being stored.

Once inside they brandished handguns and acted quickly and violently, rounding up staff and customers, our correspondent adds.

They overturned display cases and emptied the shop of nearly all its stock. Some of the staff were said to have been hurt in the robbery.

Harry Winston is situated on the fashionable Avenue Montaigne and attracts a wealthy clientele from around the world, from royalty to film stars.

The company said in a statement: "We are co-operating with the authorities in their investigation.

"Our first concern is the well-being of our employees."

A drink-driver who killed a father and son in a motorway crash was performing a sex act on himself minutes before the collision, a court heard.

Imran Hussain was driving at speeds of up to 120mph minutes before ploughing into the back of a Fiat Punto carrying the Proctor family, from Wakefield.

Gary Proctor, 47, and son James, 16, died in the smash on the M62 motorway near Rochdale, on 3 August.

Hussain, of Bradford, was jailed for eight years at Manchester Crown Court.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and one count of driving with excess alcohol at a previous hearing.

The court heard that Hussain's penis was partially exposed when motorists came to his aid after the crash.

WTF indeed!

Police to return 'wedding gifts' 
 
The police have been told to return suspected stolen goods to a woman who argued they were her wedding presents.

The district judge at Londonderry Crown Court made the order on Friday.

The court heard the police seized items including 35 pairs of workmen's boots and flatscreen TVs from a house in Strathfoyle in April.

But Ellie Stokes, from Cornshell Fields in Derry, argued they were her wedding presents. She is to marry her fiance on Monday.

A computer, two oil burners and other electrical and household goods were also seized.

The police said they believed the house in Strathfoyle was a "drop-off" for stolen goods.

The district judge said the items should be returned to Miss Stokes because there was no evidence to prove they were stolen.

Miss Stokes said she did not want the boots returned

A 40-year-old US man allegedly robbed a Chicago bank using a threatening note written on the back of his own pay slip, which was printed with his name and home address.

Thomas Infante of Cary, Illinois, walked into a Fifth Third Bank at 5.50pm local time and handed a teller a note that read "Be Quick Be Quit (sic). Give your cash or I'll shoot", according to an FBI affidavit filed on Monday. The teller gave the man about $US400.

The robber left behind his demand note, written on a torn half of the pay slip.

Investigators found the other half of the note - with Infante's name and home address - outside the bank's front doors.

The pay stub showed Infante was paid $US165.99 by Jewel Food Stores on October 23, according to the FBI.

"It's fairly unusual that we see something that specifically stupid," said FBI spokesman Ross Rice.

"But overall, we see a lot of strange bank robberies."

The bank teller described the robber as a man in his late 30s with brown eyes and no front teeth.

Investigators learned Infante may have been living at a home less than two blocks from the bank. They interviewed his brother there, who said Infante had been there earlier and had left a brown jacket behind - the same one seen in a security videotape of the robbery, according to the FBI affidavit.

His brother, shown a photograph taken from the bank security video, also identified him as the robber.

Infante was arrested at his Cary home and later admitted to the robbery, according to the FBI affidavit.

Facebook ban of breast-feeding photos sparks protests (Reuters)
 
CANBERRA (Reuters) - Are photographs of a mother breast-feeding her child indecent? The social networking site Facebook has sparked a massive online debate -- and protests -- after removing photos that expose too much of a mother's breast.

Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt said the website takes no action over most breast-feeding photos because they follow the site's terms of use but others are removed to ensure the site remains safe and secure for all users, including children.

"Photos containing a fully exposed breast (as defined by showing the nipple or areola) do violate those terms (on obscene, pornographic or sexually explicit material) and may be removed," he said in a statement.

"The photos we act upon are almost exclusively brought to our attention by other users who complain."

But Facebook's decision to ban some breast-feeding photos has angered some users, including U.S. mother Kelli Roman whose photograph of her feeding her daughter was removed by Facebook.

Roman is one of the administrators of an online petition called "Hey Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene!" which has picked up speed in the past week after protesters organized a virtual "nurse-in" on Facebook and held a small demonstration outside Facebook's office in Palo Alto, California.

The petition has now attracted more than 80,000 names and over 10,000 comments, reigniting the old debate about the rights or wrongs of breast-feeding in public.

Organizers of the petition said some women had been warned not to repost photographs that had been removed from their pages or they would face being kicked off Facebook.

One breast-feeding mother, called Rebekah, said Facebook removed a photograph of her feeding her child.

"I find it offensive that (Facebook) can remove my photo but not the close up picture of a thonged backside I (have) seen on a friend's page or remove the "what kama sutra position are you?" quiz application," she wrote.

Facebook, which has more than 120 million members, is standing by its decision.

Schnitt said the company had called many U.S. media groups during the course of the protest to ask to place an advert related to breast-feeding that showed a woman breast-feeding her child with a fully exposed breast. None agreed.

"Obviously, a newspaper and Facebook are different things but the underlying motivation for the content policies are the same," he told Reuters

Boy guilty of shooting his mother



A 12-year-old boy has been found guilty in the United States of murdering his mother following a row over his household chores
A judge in Arizona ruled prosecutors had proved the boy acted intentionally when he shot his mother, Sara Madrid, eight times last year.

The boy, from the city of Douglas in Cochise County, was found guilty of premeditated murder.

He has not been identified because he was charged as a juvenile.

He is due to be sentenced on 23 January.

The hearing took place in Cochise County Superior Court in the southern Arizona town of Bisbee.

According to prosecutors, the shooting happened after the boy had argued with his mother over chores.

He got a pistol from a bedroom cupboard and shot Sara Madrid repeatedly.

Abuse claims

Her live-in boyfriend of 10 years, Alfonso Munoz, saw what happened and he says the boy gave him the empty gun afterwards.

Mr Munoz, who helped raise the boy, said he had taught him how to use the weapon for emergencies and self-defence.

The boy's lawyer argued the child did not intend to kill his mother, but only wanted to get back at her for abusing him.

Police said the boy told them his mother yelled at him and slapped him.

Prosecutors wanted the child tried as an adult, but the judge ruled the case should remain in juvenile court after a psychologist and psychiatrist testified that he suffered physical and verbal abuse from his mother and could be rehabilitated in the juvenile justice system.

Under Arizona law, the boy can be held only until he turns 18 years of age.

Police seek blow-up doll sex bandit

 
An Australian man broke into three adult shops, had sex with blow up dolls named "Jungle Jane" and then dumped his plastic conquests in a nearby alley, local media reported Wednesday.

"It's totally bizarre. It's a real concern that someone like that is out on the street," said one of the owners of the adult sex shops in Cairns in northern Queensland state.

"He has been taking the dolls out the back and blowing them up and using the dolls and leaving them in the alley," the owner, who gave the name of Vogue, told the Cairns Post newspaper.

Police told the Cairns Post that scientific officers had taken DNA samples, fingerprints and pictures of the crime scene.

Divorce man 'wants kidney back'

A US man divorcing his wife is demanding that she return the kidney he donated to her or pay him $1.5m (£1m) in compensation.

Dr Richard Batista told reporters that he decided to go public because he was frustrated at the slow pace of divorce negotiations with his estranged wife.

He said he had not only given his heart to his wife, Dawnell, but donated his kidney to save her life.

But divorce lawyers say a donated organ is not a marital asset to be divided.

Dr Batista married Dawnell in 1990 and donated the kidney to her in 2001. She filed for divorce in 2005 and a settlement has still not been reached.

'Betrayal'

He told reporters at his lawyer's office in Long Island, New York, that going public was a last resort.

  I felt humiliated, betrayed, disrespected and disregarded

Dr Richard Batista
"There is no deeper pain that you can ever express than betrayal from somebody who you love and devoted your life to," he said.

He said he had been prevented from seeing their three children for extended periods.

"I felt humiliated, betrayed, disrespected and disregarded for me as a person, as a man, as a husband, as a father."

Dr Batista's lawyer, Dominic Barbara, said his client was "asking for the value of the kidney" that he gave his wife.

A lawyer for Mrs Batista said: "The facts aren't as represented by Dr Batista. We will be addressing the issues before the judge within the next few days."

Was queuing at the car parking meter the other day in a multi storey, a group of 3 chavettes about 18 odd were paying for their parking and i notice one of them dropped a tenner on the floor right tight to the machine. So i gave it a few seconds to see if she was picking it up, but she happily took her ticket from the machine and walked away leaving the tenner on the floor. So i said "excuse you me you have dropped some money", so she picked it up and without even looking in my direction walked off.

Some people shouldnt be allowed to give their opinions to newspapers FFS

GLAMOUR girl JORDAN has called for a new punishment for rapists – they should be raped themselves.
The tough-talking star – who also agrees with the death penalty – said: “The way I see it is an eye for an eye.

“So if someone rapes a girl he should be bent over and the same thing done to him. I’m sorry that’s just the way I feel. I’m very strict.”

Jordan, real name KATIE PRICE, added: “If someone is done for drink-driving they should have their licence taken away for life.

“And if someone steals they should have to wear a dye on their skin, like a tattoo on their ear or somewhere it can be seen – like across their face! That would stop people stealing.”

The 30-year-old model – who is moving to the US with husband PETER ANDRE – also voiced support for gay marriages.

From the Irish Times today

Perfume stolen in bid to end row with fiancee
A MAN stole perfume, flowers and two boxes of condoms in a bid to patch things up with his fiancee as their romantic getaway went horribly wrong in Co Wexford last weekend.
Erinn O’Brien (24), Kilmahuddrick Court, Clondalkin, Dublin, but now living in Tullow, Co Carlow, appeared before Judge Donnchadh Ó Buachalla at Wexford District Court. He pleaded guilty to four charges of theft and one of criminal damage.
Garda Pat Fielding told how he arrested O’Brien last Saturday at Irish Street, Enniscorthy, after a series of thefts. The garda outlined how O’Brien, at about 3.50pm, stole a bottle of perfume worth €26 from Kelly’s Pharmacy, of Slaney Place, and then went next door and stole a bouquet of flowers worth €9.99 from O’Leary’s newsagents.
He was arrested and brought to the Garda station, where a search revealed he had stolen two boxes of condoms from Caulfield’s SuperValu on Millpark Road.
On learning that he was staying in Treacy’s Hotel in Enniscorthy with his girlfriend, gardaí searched their room and found a jumper and two T-shirts stolen from Berney Bros Saddlers at Templeshannon Quay.
O’Brien also faced a charge of causing €300 worth of criminal damage to chairs at the Millrace Hotel in Bunclody on Friday night.
Leonard Leader, for O’Brien, said his client accepts that his behaviour was unacceptable and that “he went on the rampage”.
Mr Leader said the newly engaged couple went to the Millrace for a break, but after a row on Friday night O’Brien’s girlfriend threw her engagement ring at him. He then got razor blades and tried to slit his wrists. The couple were asked to leave the hotel and on Saturday booked into Treacy’s Hotel in nearby Enniscorthy.
O’Brien took 10 Valium tablets, and Mr Leader said this caused him to “go on a rampage, stealing things he thought would help him patch things up” with her.
Mr Leader said O’Brien’s girlfriend was a heroin addict for eight or nine years. He said the couple lived in Tullow as they left Clondalkin when O’Brien’s mother – also an addict – stole €1,500 from him to buy heroin. His mother and fiancee were in court to support him on Monday.
Mr Leader said O’Brien’s late father had been abusive to him all his life. He said O’Brien had had a health setback as he has “a build up of fluid in his testicles, which he needs to get seen to”.
The court heard O’Brien had one child from a previous relationship, which he looks after with his girlfriend’s two children, one of whom is severely disabled. “I would implore you to consider a non-custodial sentence,” Mr Leader told Judge Ó Buachalla.
O’Brien, a qualified painter and decorator, told Judge Ó Buachalla that he doesn’t claim social welfare as he doesn’t believe in it.
When asked by the judge how he is supporting the three children and his girlfriend, he said he was receiving financial help from an uncle in Celbridge.
The judge ordered that a Probation Officer’s Report be prepared on O’Brien and remanded him on bail in his own bond of €400 to appear before Enniscorthy District Court on April 15th next. O’Brien is to sign on at Tullow Garda Station every Friday.

A shooting in Toronto's subway system has thrown a major part of the city's public transit system into chaos.

At least one person was shot, but the condition of the victim is unknown, according to Const. Wendy Drummond.

The victim has been taken to hospital suffering from gunshot wounds.

The shooting happened just before 11 a.m. on the platform of the Osgoode station near University Avenue and Queen Street West.

Police have closed the station and an investigation is underway.

Police said they are looking for a number of suspects.

A large section of the city's Yonge-University-Spadina subway line has been closed down and will probably remain closed for much of the afternoon as police carry out their investigation.

Men who are more sexually active in their 20s and 30s may run a higher risk of prostate cancer, research suggests.

The Nottingham University study quizzed 800 men on how often they had sex or masturbated.

Those who were most active while younger had more chance of developing cancer later in life.

The researchers said higher levels of sex hormones could lead to a bigger sex drive and the cancer, the journal BJU International reported.

  Hormones appear to play a key role in prostate cancer

Dr Polyxeni Dimitropoulu
Study leader

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with well over 30,000 new cases diagnosed each year.

It affects the prostate gland, which is found close to the bladder and makes a component of semen.

The Nottingham team, led by Dr Polyxeni Dimitropoulu, recruited more than 400 men diagnosed with prostate cancer, then compared their answers to 409 men thought to be free of the disease.

As well as questions about how often they had been sexually active from puberty onwards, they were asked how many sexual partners they had had and whether they had been diagnosed with any sexual infections.

Roughly the same proportion of both groups, 59%, said they had engaged in sexual activity 12 times a month or more in their 20s, falling to 48% in their 30s, 28% in their 40s and 13% in their 50s.

Almost two-fifths of the prostate cancer group had had six female partners or more, compared with less than a third of the non-cancer group.

Frequency risk

There was also a difference among the men who masturbated or had sex the most often, with 40% of men in the cancer group being sexually active 20 times a month or more in their 20s, compared with 32% in the non-cancer group.

The gap between the two groups narrowed as the men aged, suggesting that the difference was strongest at a younger age.

Dr Dimitropoulu said: "What makes our study stand out from previous research is that we focused on a younger age group than normal and included both intercourse and masturbation at various stages in the participants' lives."

He said that it was possible that higher levels of sex hormones in some men were both responsible for a high sex drive in their 20s and 30s, and for the development of prostate cancer later on.

"Hormones appear to play a key role in prostate cancer and it is very common to treat men with therapy to reduce the hormones thought to stimulate the cancer cells."

He said that the reasons why the connection between sexual activity and prostate risk appeared to diminish with advancing age was not clear, although other studies have suggested that sexual activity releases toxins from the gland.

Nigerian police are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery - amid claims it used black magic to morf from a human to escape justice.

 
Nigerian Police are holding the goat while they complete inquiries



Vigilantes took the animal to police, claiming it had been a person trying to steal a Mazda 323.

"The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed said.

"They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat.

"We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody."

He went on: "We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat."

Belief in witchcraft is widespread in parts of Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation.

People have been flocking to the police station to see the goat, photographed in one national newspaper on its knees next to a pile of straw.

 Pair Pay £100k To Clone Dead Pet

Lancelot Encore is a clone of Ed and Nina Otto's late dog Lancelot, who died of cancer in January 2008.

The Ottos, who could not bear life without their beloved dog, placed a £108,000 bid on a biotech firm's dog-cloning auction last July.

BioArts International created Lancelot Encore in South Korea, where he was born ten weeks ago.

The Ottos say he is the first single-birth, commercially-cloned puppy in the United States.

"This is Sir Lancelot, as he was, when he was nice and healthy," said Nina Otto, "probably around the time that we actually took his DNA and froze it.

"I know that to a lot of people spending that much money is ridiculous. I've heard some of my friends say 'On a dog?', but it wasn't just a dog. It was Lancelot."

The Ottos already have eight other dogs.

But with 12 acres of land they felt they had more than enough room for another pet.

"Think about how wonderful it is to be able to have your best friend back with you," Ed Otto said.

"We know he looks identical. We're hoping he has some of the same traits."

The couple met Lancelot Encore at the airport in Miami, and were obviously delighted with the result of the cloning process.

"He's back with me," said Nina, "in terms of the essence of him, as much as you could probably expect to ever get back someone who died."

Former Bishop Auckland skipper was thought to be dead but instead he just popped out for newspaper


A historic football club held a minute's silence for an ex-player only for it to emerge later that he was still alive and kicking.

Tributes were paid to Tommy Farrer, 86, in Bishop Auckland FC's programme and his death was noted in the local newspaper.

But the former England amateur who played in three Wembley finals for the County Durham side was very much alive and well, enjoying his retirement in Maidstone, Kent.

He played down the mistake, preferring to "let it die", he said.

But earlier, he told the Northern Echo newspaper: "We are not upset, but we did think it was a bit of a joke at first."

He and his wife Gladys celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary last month.

The couple learned of the mistake when a club official telephoned her to pass on his condolences. Confused, Mrs Farrer said her husband had just popped out to buy a newspaper, and that if the caller waited a few minutes, she would fetch him to speak over the phone.

The former player, who skippered a Bishop Auckland team which took on a barefoot team of Nigerians in 1949, was particularly touched by the programme notes, which described him as a "legend".

He won eight amateur caps and was on the losing side three times in three FA Amateur Cup finals in the post-War years, when Bishops were among the best known non-league sides in the country. He went on to play for Walthamstow and settled in Maidstone in 1970.

Bishops held a minute's silence for Mr Farrer before their Northern League game against Newcastle Benfield last week, which they lost 4-0.

DOnt worry, I told him if they had to stay at home for the last eight or nine hundred years they wouldnt have such a problem with people following them home.  To be fair he agreed, he wishes they'd to stay at home too and that would have avoided getting a lot of foreigners. 
I should have seen it coming weeks ago when he was talking about going for a "chinky"  :-\

The fact is that most of the foreigners are workers doing shit jobs for shit money.
A far bigger drain on Uk's resources are the b**tards lying up on the dole who have never and will never work (including a good few of them back home)  I know one lad who is 40 this year and has worked for the sum total of 2 weeks in his life. And he has the fuckin life of riley. How do they do it.

Quote
A TRANSSEXUAL, angry at an NHS advertising campaign that depicts a man wearing makeup, says her lifestyle has been exploited for the sake of a poster.

Lucy Smith thinks the NHS should have been more sensitive to the transsexual community in Warrington when it developed a poster warning women drinkers they could end up looking like men.

“It’s hard enough living in Warrington without this,” said Lucy, a pre-op male to female transsexual.

“People see the posters on the bus and it draws attention to me sat there. I walk down the street and everyone’s looking or shouting,” she said.

Transsexuality is recognised as a medical condition, and the NHS pays for transgender operations.

That NHS Warrington would put up the posters while knowing about the problems transsexuals face has upset Lucy and her friends in the transsexual community.

Not a day goes by without a violent incident or abusive comments towards Lucy, aged 23, and the posters have only brought transsexuality to the forefront of people’s minds, she said.

“They have these pictures that stand out a mile and people will see it and start pointing and making comments and laughing,” she said.

The posters were brought in as part of a hard-hitting campaign to lower excessive drinking levels in women.

Warrington is one of the worst towns in the country for the high level of women who drink too much, and research has shown that excessive drinking can introduce male characteristics to women.

The person on the poster is fictional, made up of different images that were merged together by an artist, a spokesman for NHS Warrington said.

NHS Warrington sent the poster to national equality and diversity groups and consulted with the national lead for the transgender community, the spokesman said.

The groups did not find any reason for NHS Warrington not to use the posters.

Similar campaigns used elsewhere in the country have been successful in reducing harmful drinking levels in women, the spokesman added.

Lucy has asked both NHS Warrington and Warrington Borough Transport to remove the posters, but was told the campaign had been effective and would not be removed.

Transsexual men and women want to establish a permanent role as a member of the opposite sex, and many have gender reassignment surgery to complete this. This transition can take years.

Get this for a WTF...
Decided a couple of weeks ago to get one of them neon 'open' signs and hung it in the front window of the shop,
Got a letter yesterday telling me that in order to have the sign I'd have to get a permit...so me being me thought :D..turns out
it wasn't a joke :( So for the craic of it I proceed to City hall to find out what the requirements are.

In order to get the permit I have to draw a floor plan of the shop stating where I propose to hang the sign (now it's 14" by 8") ::) bring the drawing back to have it inspected
at a cost of $100 then i can apply for a permit that'll cost $36, after it's hung i have to pay an inspector to come out and inspect said sign and I have
to prove I had a licensed contractor to complete the massive task as they will ask to see the receipt....so no points for knowing where the sign ended up >:(

And they wonder why business are leaving California in their droves..I honestly don't know whether to laugh or be pissed off it's that ridiculous !

Domino's pizza defends halal-only outlet

By Matthew Cooper, Press Association


Thursday, 12 February 2009

The Domino's pizza chain today defended its decision to give the go-ahead for a halal-only outlet which does not offer its customers ham or bacon.


The firm said it had "thought long and hard" about the decision not to offer pork products at its store in Hall Green, Birmingham, which serves an area with a large Muslim population.


Some customers at the store have criticised the new policy, claiming it limits their freedom of choice and discriminates against non-Muslims.


But a spokeswoman for Domino's stressed that replacement items such as halal pepperoni had been sourced wherever possible.


The spokeswoman said: "In that particular area of Birmingham there are a large number of Muslims so there is naturally more of a demand for halal-based products.


"We appreciate we cannot please everybody but there are alternatives, such as turkey ham, and we have thought long and hard about this decision and we are sure it is the right one."


Domino's said the outlet was accredited by the Halal Food Authority (HFA) and was the first in the country to offer its pizzas to customers who prefer to eat halal.


The store's halal menu still includes many of the country's favourite pizzas, but with a halal twist on the toppings, Domino's added.


Items on the menu include halal spicy beef sausage, roast and tandoori chicken, halal pepperoni and halal cured turkey.


Abdul Mumtaz, the store's franchisee, said the halal store better served the needs of local residents.


Mr Mumtaz said: "Domino's is a national brand with a strong sense of the local communities in which it operates, and the halal store has been launched following huge demand from the people of Hall Green, where a high proportion of customers are followers of the Islamic faith.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This is absolute horseshite. The Hall Green area where i live does have a fair scattering of Muslims but it is probably 80/20 white.

One of the victims of the Buffalo plane crash was the widow of a man who died in the September 11 attacks, the local newspaper reported.

Beverly Eckert was flying to the city for a celebration of what would have been her husband Sean Rooney’s 58th birthday.

Her sister Sue Bourque told the Buffalo News: “We know she was on that plane and now she’s with him.”

She said the family had not yet received official confirmation of her sister’s fate, but the reality was setting in.

Mr Rooney, who was 50 when he died, was working in the World Trade Centre in the New York when terrorists flew two planes into the twin towers.

He left a message on his wife’s voicemail saying: “There has been an explosion in World Trade One – that’s the other building.

“It looks like a plane struck it. It’s on fire at about the 90th floor. And it’s, it’s – it’s horrible. Bye.”

Ms Eckert became co-chairwoman of the group Voices of September 11.

STAMFORD, Connecticut  — The frantic owner of a 200-pound chimpanzee that went berserk in Connecticut pleaded with police over the phone to help her stop the animal from mauling her friend, begging them to "Hurry, please! He ripped her face off."

Watch VideoListen to the dramatic 911 call where the owner of the chimp pleads to the dispatcher to send police officers to save her friend.

Police in Stamford released tapes of Sandra Herold's desperate call to police Monday as her 15-year-old chimp, Travis, was attacking 55-year-old Charla Nash. (To hear the harrowing audio, click on the video link directly to the left. WARNING: The content is graphic.)

The chimp can be heard grunting at times on the tape, as Herold cries, "He's killing my friend!"

The dispatcher says, "Who's killing your friend?"

Herold replies, "My chimpanzee! He ripped her apart! Shoot him, shoot him!"

After police arrive, one officer radios back: "There's a man down. He doesn't look good," he says, referring to the disfigured Nash. "We've got to get this guy out of here. He's got no face."

The chimp attacked Nash as Herold, 70, frantically stabbed her beloved pet with a butcher knife and pounded him with a shovel.

"He looked at me like, 'Mom, what did you do?'" Herold told NBC's "Today Show" in an interview aired Wednesday. "It was horrific what happened and I had to do what I had to do, but still, I'll miss him for the rest of my life."

Nash remained was in critical condition early Wednesday with major injuries to her face and hands.

Police said they are looking into the possibility of criminal charges. A pet owner can be held criminally responsible if he or she knew or should have known that an animal was a danger to others.

Police said that the chimp was agitated earlier Monday and that Herold had given him the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in some tea. Police said the drug had not been prescribed for the 14-year-old chimp.

Investigators said they were also told that Travis had Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness with flu-like symptoms that can lead to arthritis and meningitis in humans.

"Maybe from the medications he was out of sorts," Stamford police Capt. Richard Conklin said.

Nash had gone to Herold's home in Stamford on Monday to help her coax the chimp back into the house after he got out, police said. After the animal lunged at Nash when she got out of her car, Herold ran inside to call the police emergency line and returned with a knife.

After the initial attack, Travis ran away and started roaming Herold's property until police arrived, setting up security so medics could reach the critically injured woman, Conklin said.

But the chimpanzee returned and went after several of the officers, who retreated into their cars, Conklin said. An officer shot Travis several times after the animal opened the door to his cruiser and started to get in.

Nothing suss about this   ::)


The wife of Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai has been killed in a car crash in which he was also hurt, according to reports.

Susan Tsvangirai was travelling with her husband south of the capital, Harare, when the crash happened.

Mr Tsvangirai, leader of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party, formed a unity government with President Robert Mugabe last month.

The two had been long-time rivals before agreeing a power-sharing deal.

MDC spokesman Nelson Chamisa told Reuters news agency that Mr Tsvangirai was not in a critical condition.

"We have just heard that there was an accident of sorts involving the president of the party. Injuries, yes, but not critical condition, we are still assessing the actual condition," he said.

 
The prime minister is said to have been on his way to his rural home in Buhera at the start of the weekend when his vehicle was involved in a crash near Beatrice.

A second MDC spokesman, James Maridadi, told the Associated Press news agency that the car had been in collision with a lorry. The car was also carrying an aide, he said.

The prime minister was apparently not seriously hurt but was immediately transferred to a clinic in the capital, Harare, the BBC's Peter Biles in Johannesburg says.

The crash comes just two days after Mr Tsvangirai delivered his maiden speech to parliament after being sworn in as prime minister in Zimbabwe's power-sharing government, our correspondent adds.

He and his wife Susan, who were married in 1978, had six children.

The BBC News website's Africa editor Joseph Winter says Mrs Tsvangirai always stayed out of the limelight but was equally a source of strength to her husband, when in the past he was charged with treason and assaulted for his opposition to Mr Mugabe.

She accompanied him to court on several occasions.

There are no dual carriageways on Harare's inter-city roads, making overtaking dangerous, our correspondent adds.

Traffic accidents are common, often because of speeding and drink-driving.

Jail for Halloween mask slasher 
 
A man who wore a Halloween mask while slashing two people in random street attacks in Glasgow has been jailed for five years and three months.

Craig Harvey, 23, admitted assaulting both men to their severe injury and permanent disfigurement during the attacks in Shettleston last October.

The High Court in Kilmarnock heard he committed the offences while on bail.

Judge Lady Dorrian also ordered Harvey to be supervised for four years after his release.

The court heard how he approached 17-year-old Jonathan Gallagher in Shettleston while he was wearing a white Halloween mask with a hood.

He pulled off the mask and slashed the teenager across the head before fleeing.

Minutes later, he attacked Kevin Paton, 31, as his 10-year-old daughter watched.

Harvey was arrested after being captured on CCTV wearing the mask on top of his head.

A man police caught performing a sex act with a car wash vacuum has been sentenced to 90 days in prison.
Jason Leroy Savage must also submit to drug testing.
The 29-year-old from Michigan, was sentenced at Saginaw County Circuit Court.
Savage pleaded no contest to indecent exposure last month.
Police said Savage was arrested after a resident called officers early on October 16 to report suspicious activity at a car wash in Thomas Township, about 90 miles north-west of Detroit.
Savage's lawyer, Philip Sturtz, didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.

WTF!

Diego Maradona has reacted to claims made by Pele that he is not a good role model for children, by declaring that he lost his virginity with a man.

The Brazilian legend claimed last week that both Ronaldo and Robinho have taken drugs, and that Maradona is not someone to look up to because of his history with narcotics.

The Argentine coach was asked for his thoughts on these statements at a press conference today, and did not twist his words when responding.

"What do you want me to say? He debuted (lost his virginity) with a lad (a man)," is what the coach is reported to have said by a host of sources, including Marca.

The response prompted plenty of laughter from all the journalists present at the conference but it is unlikely to go down to well with the Brazilian, nor with some onlookers.

Pele has already had to track back on his claims that Robinho had taken drugs, after the Manchester City man threatened to take legal action.

The now retired Pele claimed that what had been quoted was a "misunderstanding" and suggested the drugs claims were not true.

This latest remark by Maradona has dragged the Brazilian legend into the spotlight yet again and it will be intriguing to see if, or how, he reacts to the comments.

An Australian man who pimped a 16-year-old schoolgirl paid her with chicken nuggets for having sex with men, a court has been told.

Ronald Vikash Gander, 27, and his 16-year-old girlfriend devised a plan to prostitute a teenage girl so they could afford the weekly $1,050 rent on a serviced inner-Brisbane apartment, the Brisbane District Court was told. The court was told the girl made $4,500 for having sex with five middle-aged men in June last year.

Gander and his girlfriend used the money for living expenses and paid the girl nothing except for the occasional box of chicken nuggets.

The court was told Gander's girlfriend - who cannot be named - threatened the student, who had run away from home, with eviction if she didn't continue having sex with clients to earn her keep.

Judge Marshall Irwin described the prostitution offences as "sordid". "The girl was used as if she was a piece of meat ... and your conduct can properly be described as that of a sleaze merchant," Judge Irwin said.

Gander pleaded guilty on Monday to one count each of procuring prostitution with a circumstance of aggravation and knowingly participating in the provision of prostitution with a circumstance of aggravation.

The court was told he had a substantial criminal history of dishonesty offences, and that he was on parole when he committed these offences.

Gander was jailed for six years in 2004 for 15 charges relating to an attempt to pull off a multi-million dollar fraud involving the sale of a Brisbane high-rise building. That sentence was reduced to five years in 2005 by the Court of Appeal, and Gander was released in 2007.


Judge Irwin sentenced Gander to two and a half years' jail, to be suspended after nine months, for the latest offence.

Woman bit off boyfriend's tongue
1 hour 16 mins ago

 Print Story A woman who bit off her boyfriend's tongue during a kiss on his birthday has been jailed for three years. Skip related content
Related photos / videos Tracy Davies bit off her boyfriend's tongue during a kiss Tracy Davies, 40, severed the first third of Mark Coghill's tongue in "an animal fashion" after asking him for a "smoochy kiss", Newcastle Crown Court heard.

The pair, who met through a lonely hearts column, had been celebrating Mr Coghill's 45th birthday, and had drunk two bottles of vodka before the attack.

During the three day trial, Newcastle Crown Court heard how Davies "turned into the likes of Mike Tyson" within seconds of being "lovely".

A recovering alcoholic, Davies had become upset because she wanted a baby and wasn't pregnant. When Mr Coghill comforted her, she told him she loved him and asked him to kiss her.

But she soon turned into a "massive monster", Mr Coghill told the court, biting down hard on his tongue after she lured him into putting it in her mouth. He screamed in pain and tapped her on the head in a bid to make her release him. Instead she chewed through his tongue, and spat it out on the floor.

Sentencing her, Judge John Evans said Davies had acted in an "animal fashion" and adding that Mr Coghill's injury was "truly appalling".

During the trial, Mr Coghill told the court how he tried to fight Davies off, but her teeth remained clamped to his tongue. "I couldn't kick her off, or push her away or anything like that. I was just hoping and praying she would stop," Mr Coghill told the court.

"Then when she did stop, she opened her mouth, and looked at me in such a way that I have never seen anyone do before. She opened her mouth, and my tongue was in her mouth. She let out a satisfaction sound, like if you have a cup of tea when you haven't had one for a few days. An mmmm sound."

In her defence, Davies said she had "no recollection" of attacking Mr Coghill, and she only told the police she was responsible for his injury because he had convinced her that she had done so

Who would get the most complaints that the BBC would have to respond to? I would have thought Jonathan Ross but no, it's looking for like eastenders!!
Top one now is a response to complaints over "Danielle's death", I dont know who Danielle is but ffs would the people complaining get a grip!  There's an number of statements issued over complaints on easterenders storylines.
They've answered complaints on "Excessive coverage of the US election" and too much sport on the schedule on some day in Feb and on the commentators being biased int he Wimbledon final. 

And yous all think I'm a moaner!

According to the caption that accompanies a circulating photograph of an unusually muscular canine, the pictured dog is the strongest in the world and works for the Russian Army. At first glance, many may assume that the image has been manipulated. However, the photograph is genuine and depicts a real animal. On the other hand, the claims in the photograph's caption are inaccurate.

According to a July 2007 Daily Mail article, the hulking canine in the photograph is a whippet named Wendy who was born with a genetic defect which caused her to grow larger and much more muscular than others of her breed:

    While her head, heart, lungs and legs are the size of those of a normal whippet, her gene defect means she is "double muscled".

    She weighs 4st4lb - twice as much as she should - and has bulging neck muscles, burly shoulders and haunches like a baboon. And unlike ordinary whippets known for their lithe and narrow frame, this four-year-old pedigree doesn't just have a sixpack stomach, she has a 24-pack.

A June 2007 New York Times article reports that Wendy and others like her - dubbed "bully whippets" - have become the subjects of scientific testing.

    When mutant, muscle-bound puppies started showing up in litters of champion racing whippets, the breeders of the normally sleek dogs invited scientists to take DNA samples at race meets here and across the country. They hoped to find a genetic cause for the condition and a way to purge it from the breed.

    It worked. "Bully whippets," as the heavyset dogs are known, turn out to have a genetic mutation that enhances muscle development.

In spite of her somewhat fearsome appearance, Wendy's owner claims that she is a friendly animal who "likes nothing better than a good back scratch and isn't shy about sitting in your lap to ask for one". And far from living a spartan life as a Russian Army dog, Wendy enjoys a relaxed and healthy life on a farm in Victoria, Canada.

Research indicates that there have been many contenders for the title of "Strongest dog in the World", but no clear and confirmed winner has so far emerged. And, in fact, reports about Wendy make no claims that she is the world's strongest dog.

A report in the PLoS Genetics journal offers in-depth scientific information about the genetic mutation that caused Wendy's double-muscled appearance.

A hairdresser from the small Russian town of Meshchovsk has subdued a man who tried to rob her shop, and then raped him for three days in the utility room, Life.ru reports.

The incident occurred on Saturday, March 14. The working day was coming to an end at a small hairdressers, when a man armed with a gun rushed in and demanded the day’s earnings.

The frightened employees and customers agreed to fulfill his demand, but when the shop’s owner, 28-year-old Olga, was handing the money to the robber, she suddenly knocked him down on the floor and then tied him up with a hairdryer cord. The 32-year-old Viktor couldn’t have known that the woman was a yellow belt in karate.

Olga locked the unlucky robber in the utility room and told her colleagues that she was going to call the police – but didn’t do so. When everybody left home, she approached the man and ordered him to ‘take of his underpants’ threatening to hand him over to the police if he refuses to cooperate.

After that Olga raped her hostage for three long days. She chained Viktor to the radiator with pink furry handcuffs and fed him Viagra.

She eventually let the man go on Monday, March 16, saying: “Get out of my sight!”

Viktor went straight to hospital as his genitals were injured, and then to the police.

Olga was resentful when she was taken by the police.

“What a b*stard,” the woman said about Viktor. “Yes, we had sex a couple of times. But I’ve bought him new jeans, gave him food and even gave him 1.000 roubles (around $ 30) when he left.”

After that she wrote a notice to the police claiming the man tried to rob her shop.

Both Olga and Viktor may now face prison terms. The woman could be convicted of rape, while the man of robbery.

this should give you an idea:

A young hairdresser in Kaluga, Central Russia, locked a robber who tried to steal her money in the basement of the beauty salon. After that, she has brutally raped her hostage for three days. A court in Kaluga has filed criminal charges against both of them, the Russian website Newsru.com reports.

The robber, who has not been named, burst into the salon armed with shotgun at about 17.00 on March 14. He demanded money. There were two hairdressers and one client in the salon at the time. One of hairdressers, who was studying judo and taekwondo, disabled the robber with a smashing body blow. Then she carried the unlucky robber to the basement and bound him with a hairdryer cord.

The hairdresser told her scared colleague and the client that she would call the police. But she did not. After work, instead of calling the police, she made her hostage undress. The perverted hairdresser forced the hostage to take several Viagra tablets. She chained the unfortunate robber with pink furry wristbands and painfully raped him for the next three days.

After his release, the exhausted robber filed charges against the perverted woman. The frenulum of his penis was torn as a consequence of rape session.

“That’s ridiculous. We had sex just a couple times. I brought him brand new jeans. I fed him every day and gave him one thousand rubles ($25) before his release,” the hairdresser said.

In response, she filed charges against the robber.

The robber admitted that the hairdresser really did feed him royally.

“I actually don’t know what will happen to them. But it’s a pity that they could not meet in the cell. They would be a great couple,” one of the police officers said.

Trial in France for Jew's murder 
 
Ilan Halimi was brutally tortured before he died
Twenty-seven people have gone on trial in Paris for the kidnapping and killing of a young Jewish man that shocked France three years ago.

A gang targeting Jews in ransom kidnappings has been blamed for the abduction and brutal torture of the victim, Ilan Halimi.

The alleged gang leader, Youssouf Fofana, shouted "God is great" in Arabic as he entered the courtroom.

The killing prompted large demonstrations against anti-Semitism.

Mr Halimi, 23, was kidnapped and brutally tortured for more than three weeks before he was found naked and tied to a tree near a railway track in the suburbs south of Paris.

He had been stabbed and set alight and he died on his way to hospital.

Youssouf Fofana, the leader of a Paris gang known as The Barbarians, is accused of carrying out the attack and faces life imprisonment if found guilty.

Mr Fofana entered the court wearing a white tracksuit. He looked at Mr Halimi's relatives, shouting "Allahu akbar".

When the judged asked the 28-year-old for his birthday, he said he was born on 13 February, 2006, in Sainte-Genevieve-des-Bois - the date and place of Mr Halimi's death.


 
Youssouf Fofana has pleaded not guilty to murder
Youssouf Fofana is alleged to have instructed gang members to target Jews and to kidnap them until their families paid a ransom.

He has admitted all the charges, including entrapment and kidnapping but he denies stabbing Mr Halimi to death.

The other defendants have been indicted on lesser charges. As some of them were minors at the time of the crime, the judge excluded the public and the press for the remainder of the trial.

The victim, who worked in a mobile phone shop, was lured by a gang member to an empty apartment in the Parisian suburbs where he was attacked and drugged.

During his ordeal, his family were sent harrowing images and video recordings by his captors.

The then-President, Jacques Chirac, promised his parents a full investigation.

Kenyan Arsenal fan hangs himself 
 

A Kenyan fan of English football club Arsenal has hanged himself after his team's defeat by Manchester United.

The north London club was beaten 3-1 in the European Champions League semi-final second leg on Tuesday evening.

Suleiman Omondi, 29, who was watching in a bar in the capital, Nairobi, was incensed by the club's poor showing.

He left at half-time after arguing with a Manchester United fan and was found hanging from a rope in his house, still dressed in an Arsenal shirt.

'Broke down'

The BBC's Josphat Makori in Nairobi says the unprecedented incident has shocked football fans in Kenya.

According to his friends, Mr Omondi was in good spirits at the beginning of the match and even when Arsenal conceded the first goal, he did not seem to be affected.

  He was so angry that he left in a rage

Eyewitness
But things changed when the team conceded a second goal 11 minutes into the game.

A woman, who sat next to him in the bar, said Mr Omondi was so disappointed by Arsenal's poor performance that he broke down during half-time.

Another eyewitness told journalists that it was at this point that a Manchester United fan started taunting him.

"Suleiman got hold of him angrily by the neck and started pressing him so hard," he said.

"We quickly intervened and asked him to stop. Suleiman then stopped but he was so angry that he left in a rage."

His body was found on Wednesday morning.

Police officer David Bunei told the BBC the incident was being investigated.

Woman Dies After Using Jackhammer As Dildo
Posted on May 5, 2009 by tubesteak

ARNDALE, OK – Sheriff’s investigators have closed the unsettling case of a 49-year-old female construction worker found dead in her driveway after a neighbor witnessed her using a high-powered jackhammer to pleasure herself.

After a two-day investigation in which officials initially suspected foul play–Shirley Dent’s death on May 1 has now been ruled an accident “after severe internal distress induced by the machine was discovered,” Det.-Sgt. Karl Sprout of the Alpara County Sheriff’s Office said yesterday.

On May 1, a neighbor witnessed a naked Ms. Dent in her driveway “struggling to direct a jackhammer toward her mid-section.” The alarmed neighbor notified police after hearing ear-splitting moans of distress that carried over the raucous jackhammer. Authorities arrived at the scene to an unresponsive Ms. Dent, who was then transported to West Grenier Hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

The recently divorced Ms. Dent had been questioned by authorities three times over the past month after neighbors complained of her running a prostitution ring from her home. Records also show that Ms. Dent supplemented her income as the sole proprietor of a sex toy distributor.

Ms. Dent’s alleged extracurricular activities appear to be unrelated to her death. A neighbor who declined to be identified said, “She was a horny lady, especially after her husband moved out. My family could hear moans coming from her place all the time.”

Toddler buys real digger online
 
Pipi's parents nearly had to dig deep

A New Zealand couple nearly found themselves in a financial hole when their three-year-old daughter bought an earthdigger in an internet auction.

The child, Pipi Quinlan, was trying out her online skills while her parents were asleep in bed.

They only unearthed the truth when they received an email demand for NZ$20,000 (£8,000) from the seller.

Pipi's mother, Sarah, had left the computer logged on. The owner of the digger is not insisting on the sale.

Shock

Sarah Quinlan told the BBC that she had been looking for toys online, and using an automatic log-in to an auction site.

But a shock was in store when she got up the next day.

"When I found an email from a guy who said 'can you deposit the money?' I thought - hang on - this isn't quite what I expected," she said.

Pipi had only been allowed to use the computer for the first time the week before - but is obviously a fast learner.

"It's been a lot of fun," said Sarah, "She's earned a bit of notoriety."

But Sarah is determined the same thing will not happen again, and has urged the parents of other young children not to be caught out.

"I've taken all my automatic log-ins off anything she could purchase from," she said.

China bridge jumper 'gets a push' 

A man threatening to commit suicide by jumping from a Chinese bridge was approached by a passer-by who shoved him over the edge, local media say.

Lai Jiansheng, 66, said he was fed up with the desperate man's "selfish activity" which caused huge traffic jams in Guangzhou, southern China.

Chen Fuchao fell 26ft (8m) on to an air cushion and is recovering in hospital, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Xinhua said Mr Lai was "taken away by police", but gave no further details.

The drama unfolded when Mr Chen climbed on to Haizhu Bridge in Guangzhou on Thursday and threatened to jump.

'Debt worries'

He told police he wanted to kill himself because he was 2m yuan ($293,000 or £184,000) in debt following a failed construction project, the China Daily reported.

Traffic around the bridge was stopped for five hours while officers tried to coax Mr Chen to safety.

Retired soldier Mr Lai at first volunteered to try to talk Mr Chen down but was turned away by police, Xinhua said.

Mr Lai is said to have then broken through the police cordon, climbed to where Mr Chen sat, greeted him with a handshake - and then pushed him off the edge.


 
Pictures in the China Daily show him saluting to the crowd after Mr Chen fell on to the partially filled emergency air cushion.

"I pushed him off because jumpers like Chen are very selfish," the newspaper quoted Mr Lai as saying.

"Their action violates a lot of public interests. They do not really dare to kill themselves. Instead, they just want to raise the relevant government authorities' attention to their appeals."

Mr Chen is said to have suffered spine and elbow injuries and is recovering in a Guangzhou hospital.

The bridge has gained a macabre reputation, attracting at least 12 would-be suicide jumpers since the start of April, according to the China Daily report.

None of the 12 has jumped, although each has held up traffic for several hours, it said.

Scandal of the children killed for 'witchcraft'

In Nigeria, rogue pastors prey on fears of black magic to drum up a lucrative trade in 'exorcisms'

By Emily Dugan

Sunday, 9 November 2008

   

Five-year-old Utitofong can never go home. She has a loving family and has committed no crime, but her neighbours want her dead. Like thousands of children in the Niger delta of west Africa, she has fallen victim to an outbreak of virulent superstition that sees innocent young people condemned as witches. They can be driven from their villages, tortured or killed.

When her father died, Utitofong was blamed for having caused his death by witchcraft. Her mother spent more than four months' wages on exorcisms, fearing that her daughter would be killed by hostile villagers. But when the money ran out and a pastor proclaimed her a lost cause, Utitofong had to leave home for ever.

There have been Christians in Nigeria since the 19th century. While the majority hold moderate beliefs, an extreme minority has harnessed existing superstitions about black magic and turned them into a lucrative trade. Up to 15,000 children in Nigeria's Akwa Ibom and Cross River states alone have been branded witches by rogue pastors, who charge large sums to "exorcise" them.

Sam Itauma runs the Child Rights and Rehabilitation Network (CRARN), a makeshift shelter and school in Eket for 150 children who have been deemed to be possessed. The children bear the horrific scars of witch-branding: acid burns, machete wounds and severe malnutrition.

A man from Ibaka in Akwa Ibom, who calls himself "the Bishop", has made a fortune conducting "exorcisms" of children, claiming that they are possessed by the devil and eat human flesh. He told an investigation by Channel 4's Dispatches that he had killed "up to 110 people" who were identified as witches.

Gary Foxcroft, a Briton who is director of Stepping Stones Nigeria, a charity that works with children abandoned because of their supposed "possession", describes the situation as "an absolute scandal".

The distribution of a video claiming to explain how to "diagnose" those possessed is blamed. The film, End of the Wicked, is distributed widely across the Niger delta by the Liberty Gospel Church, a powerful evangelical sect with some 150 branches in the region. Its graphic images of apparently possessed children eating a human carcass, and being inducted into covens, have fuelled an epidemic of paranoia.

But more damaging than this are the film's directions on how to spot a child witch. It tells viewers that an infant under the age of two may be possessed if they scream in the night, experience ill health or get a fever.

A YOUNG man born with a heart problem died while watching a porn film.
Chris Nicholls, 23, collapsed after getting over-excited as he viewed the blue movie in his bedroom, an inquest heard.

He died of a cardiac arrest weeks after having open-heart surgery.

His body was found by his mum Clare at the family home in Redhill, Surrey. At the inquest she asked pathologist Dr Mary Sheppard, who examined Chris after his death, whether the heart attack was brought on by the film.

She said: "Christopher was watching a blue movie when I found him.

A horrified sheriff has spoken out after a 72-year-old woman who refused to sign a speeding ticket was stunned twice with a Taser gun after provoking a policeman.
Video released by Travis County Constable's Office in Texas shows Kathryn Winkfein hitting the ground and moaning while the electric shocks jolted through her body.
It happened during a confrontation with sheriff's deputy Chris Bieze.
Travis County sheriff Greg Hamilton, whose office does not oversee the constables, issued a statement saying: "I do not personally agree with the actions of the deputy constable as they are shown in the video. When I look at the video, I am in awe of what happened."
Ms Winkfein was stopped for driving at 60mph in a 45mph zone just west of Austin. A dashboard camera in the deputy's car shows the 4ft 11in OAP refusing to sign her speeding ticket, getting out of her white pick-up truck and swearing at the deputy constable.
Mr Bieze then pushes her to get her away from traffic.
"You're gonna shove a 72-year-old woman," Ms Winkfein says angrily, standing inches from the deputy. "If you don't step back, you're going to get Tased," Mr Bieze says. "Go ahead, Tase me," Ms Winkfein says. "I dare you."
The video then shows Mr Bieze using the Taser and Ms Winkfein hitting the ground and moaning in pain.
Ms Winkfein was eventually charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanour punishable by up to a year in jail and fines of up to £2,500.
Constable Sgt Maj Gary Griffin of the constable's office defended Mr Bieze's actions and said Ms Winkfein was belligerent and difficult to handle.

IT'S a ringing endorsement of Iarnrod Eireann from the most unlikely quarter.

Controversial Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is campaigning to be re-elected on the plank that his country is advancing as rapidly as a train, only the train in question is Irish, almost as old as he is and until 2007 was delivering freight around the country.

An Irish tourist visiting Iran couldn't believe his eyes when he spotted the locomotive fronting an election poster in the centre of Tehran, and forwarded the photo to a friend working for Iarnrod Eireann.

The General Motors 181 was scrapped two years ago, although two of its number are still working. That said, it did have a 43-year career, entering service in 1966.

Yesterday, Iarnrod Eireann said while it didn't support any candidate in the presidential elections, it would have preferred to see one of its new trains on display.

"We fully expected Irish public transport, and our plans to develop the rail service, to feature in our own election campaign last week, but to feature in Iran was a bit of a surprise," spokesman Barry Kenny said.

The Farsi script on the poster says: "The country is advancing as rapidly as a train."

The Iranian Embassy said it could not comment on where the image of the locomotive came from, and the office of the president could not be contacted last night. The embassy reminded Iranians living here to vote on Friday in the presidential election between 9am and 7pm in the Iranian Embassy at 72 Mount Merrion Avenue, Blackrock, Co Dublin.

How the fcuk can you fall asleep when getting tattoo's on your face ???

A teenage girl is suing a tattoo artist for £10,000 after she allegedly asked him for three stars on her face - but ended up with 56.

Eighteen-year-old Kimberley Vlaminck paid £55 for 'the graffiti that has ruined my life' in her Belgian home town of Courtrai.
Enlarge    Scarred from life: Kimberley Vlaminck shows her tattooed face. The 56 stars will cost £8,500 to remove
She claimed the Romanian tattooist who performed the artwork misunderstood her French and English. 

She claims she fell asleep while he was doing his work... and awoke to 'this nightmare'.
But today, Rouslan Toumaniantz - himself covered from head to foot in tattoos and piercings - said he would help pay for treatment to remove the tattoos.
'I maintain that she absolutely agreed that I tattoo those 56 stars on the left side of her face,' he told newspaper La Derniere Heure.

'A witness, a woman who was present, has already been questioned by police, and she confirms it.

Pet python kills girl, 2
1 hour 40 mins ago

A family has been left distraught after their huge pet Burmese python escaped from its cage and strangled their two-year-old to death.
Pet snake escapes and strangles child to death

Shaiunna Hare was already dead when paramedics arrived at the Florida home which kept the snake as a pet.

Charles Jason Darnell, the snake's owner and the boyfriend of Shaiunna's mother, discovered the 8 feet long (2.4 metres) snake missing from its tank and rushed to the girl's room.

He found "the snake on the child" and bite marks on her head. Darnell, 32, stabbed the snake until he was able to pry the child away.

Darnell did not have a permit for the snake. He has not been charged, but authorities said investigators are looking into whether there was child neglect or if any other laws were broken.

Burmese pythons are not native to Florida, but they easily survive in the wild and a population has taken hold in the Everglades. One even burst after trying to eat an alligator.

Some owners have freed pythons into the wild and scientists also believe a number of Burmese pythons escaped in 1992 from pet shops battered by Hurricane Andrew and have been reproducing since.

The Humane Society of the United States said including Wednesday's death, at least 12 people had been killed in the US by pet pythons since 1980, including five children.

Dublin homes flooded after torrential rain
listen Thursday, 2 July 2009 13:31


Several homes in north Dublin have been flooded following torrential overnight rain.

Some 15 days of average rainfall was recorded at Dublin Airport in one hour. However, the airport remains open.

Flooding on roads, which caused major traffic disruptions earlier, has subsided in many parts of Dublin.
Advertisement

Some roads around Dublin are still affected and a full DART service has not been restored.

Around 20 residents of Clanmoyle Road, Donneycarney, were evacuated because of severe flooding.

The basements of the houses filled with flood water, which then overflowed. Walls in the gardens collapsed.

Residents say they were still recovering from last year when their homes flooded following heavy rainfall.

In the inner city, another 20 residents had to leave their apartments on Sherrard Street.

The Mater Misericordiae Hospital in Dublin is asking the public not to attend its A&E Department, which remains closed because of the flooding.

A roof collapsed in the old part of the hospital and patients had to be moved from one ward.

It said people with outpatient appointments today should attend as normal, while those who are scheduled to have elective surgery should contact the hospital before leaving their home to check if their appointment has been affected.

The Fire Brigade also attended a house in Monkstown, Co Dublin, where the roof had collapsed.

Earlier, Dublin Fire Brigade asked people not to travel unless absolutely necessary after torrential overnight downpours.

It is asking people not to drive into areas where roads are flooded as there is a real risk they will become stranded.

Rail services affected

Iarnrod Éireann has said all services are running as normal again after earlier disruption due to flooding.

However, the station at Bayside has been closed due to flooding and no DARTs are stopping there.

Passengers are being asked to use Sutton or Howth Junction stations as an alternative.

Dublin Bus is accepting rail tickets.

Earlier, flooding at Dún Laoghaire disrupted services between Dalkey and Dún Laoghaire.

Early morning motorists described the worst-hit areas in Dublin as akin to 'swimming pools'.N11 closed this morning

The M1 at the entrance to the Port Tunnel was barely passable on one lane only. The other three lanes were impassable.

The N11, which was closed from Booterstown Avenue to Fosters Avenue, and the Rock Road have reopened.

Dublin City Council has said potentially any house in the capital could have flooded overnight.

A spokesman said emergency staff were on standby since a weather warning was issued by Met Éireann at 9pm and went out once rain began to fall at 2am.

The spokesman said: 'Flood waters are alleviating at the moment and the high tide is below critical level so it should not cause a huge problem.'

Torrential downpours have also been reported in parts of the south and east as well as the midlands.

The Fire Brigade is warning that if it does start to rain again problems may arise.

Family's urine bid to locate dog


A family who tried to lure back a lost dog by leaving a trail of their urine on streets near their home have been criticised by the city council.

The Baltesz family, of Clifton, Bristol, lost their 10-year-old pet labrador Simon on the night of 4 July.

When Simon failed to return, the family chose their unorthodox method.

A Bristol City Council spokeswoman said: "We would not consider this to be a good idea from an environmental health point of view."

Louise Baltesz, 43, said the whole family had been "chipping in" to help lay down the scent trail.

She said she was aware of criticism aimed at the family, but they were willing to do anything to get Simon back.

'Very diluted'

"There are people who are upset about it, but I'm too emotionally drained to think about it," she said. "I'm worried about it - I really am.

"If everyone peed in the street it would be disgusting, wouldn't it? But it's very, very diluted."

Jonathan Baltesz, 44, wife Louise, and children Henry, 15 and Clara, 13
The family said they were desperate to get Simon back

Mrs Baltesz said the idea for the scent trail came from a website which offered a range of advice to owners of missing dogs.

She said: "I do feel mad doing it, but I'm driven to desperate measures.

"Apparently it's quite a normal way of doing it. You just put a little bit in a bottle and then top it up with water.

"You put some smelly food down, they come towards the food and then catch the scent [of the urine]. You only have to do it once. We've left two trails."

'Owner's scent'

The family have put up "missing" posters and have received several possible sightings of Simon, who is described as "not very approachable" and naturally timid.

But a vet at a nearby practice was less than optimistic the plan would succeed.

Ian Wills, from the nearby Zetland Veterinary Hospital in Bristol, said: "I think it's an interesting idea but I would be pleasantly surprised if it worked.

"When a dog wanders off from home they will generally wander back when they have had enough.

"If the dog was going to follow the owner's scent it would be from something they wore, like a jumper. Unless they have an incontinence problem."

A Bristol City Council spokeswoman said it was unlikely the authority would take any action against the family.

Leg-cutting funeral home to close 
 
A judge in the US state of South Carolina has ordered the closure of a funeral home where an employee cut off the legs of a 6ft 7in (2m) body.

The worker used an electric saw to sever James Hines's legs at the calf to make his body fit the coffin in 2004.

The owner had contested the revocation of his licence, saying he was absent when the incident happened and pointing to an otherwise unblemished record.

But after a brief hearing, the judge confirmed the business should close.

Earlier this year the owner of the funeral parlour in Allendale admitted that his father, who helped with cleaning and embalming bodies, had sawn off Mr Hines's legs.

The admission came after a former employee told police about the incident, four years after it happened.

In April South Carolina's funeral board exhumed the body and found the severed legs in the coffin.

Mr Hines has since been reburied in another coffin.

SAN ANTONIO – A woman charged with murdering her 3 1/2-week-old son used a knife and two swords to dismember the child and ate parts of his body, including his brain, before stabbing herself in the torso and slicing her own throat, police said Monday.

Otty Sanchez, 33, is charged with capital murder in the death of her infant son, Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez. She was recovering from her wounds at a hospital, and was being held on $1 million bail.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said the early Sunday morning attack occurred a week after the child's father moved out. Otty Sanchez's sister and her sister's two children, ages 5 and 7, were in the house, but none were harmed.

Otty Sanchez's aunt, Gloria Sanchez, said her niece had been "in and out" of a psychiatric ward, and that the hospital called several months ago looking to check up on her. She did not elaborate on the nature of her niece's health problems.

"Otty didn't mean to do that. She was not in her right mind," a sobbing Gloria Sanchez told The Associated Press on Monday by phone. She said her family was devastated.

McManus, who appeared uncomfortable as he addressed reporters, said Sanchez apparently ate the child's brain and some other body parts. She also decapitated the infant, tore off his face and chewed off three of his toes before stabbing herself.

"It's too heinous for me to describe it any further," McManus said.

McManus described the crime scene as so grisly that police officers barely spoke to each other while looking through the house. Parts of the child were missing, including pieces that Sanchez allegedly ate.

"At this particular scene you could have heard a pin drop," McManus said. "No one was speaking. It was about as somber as it could have been."

Officers called to Sanchez's house at about 5 a.m. Sunday found her sitting on the couch screaming "I killed my baby! I killed my baby!" McManus said. They found the boy's body in a bedroom.

Police said Sanchez said the devil told her to kill her son and that she was hearing voices.

"It was a spontaneous utterance," McManus said.

Police said Sanchez did not have an attorney, and they declined to identify family members who might speak on her behalf.

No one answered the door Monday at Sanchez's one-story home, where the blinds were shut. A hopscotch pattern and red hearts were drawn on the walk leading up to the house.

Neighbor Luis Yanez, 23, said his kids went to school with one of the small children who lived at the house. He said he often saw a woman playing outside with the children but didn't know whether it was Otty.

"Why would you do that to your baby?" said Yanez, a tire technician. "It brings chills to you. They can't defend themselves."

Authorities said Sanchez and her sister took turns watching the baby Sunday morning, and that the boy was placed in Sanchez's care at about 1:30 a.m. Her sister discovered what happened about three hours later and called police.

Investigators are looking into whether postpartum depression could have played a role in the attack, McManus said. Authorities said they were looking into Sanchez's mental health history to see if there was anything "significant" but did not elaborate.

The price of drink in Temple Bar :o :o

I know it has been discussed on here loads of times but on Friday night after Croker we had to go into town to meet a few friends from Liverpool who were in Dublin for the first time ever and who wanted "to see Temple Bar".

Now its a while since I have been there but I'll tell you what it will be another while before I'm back....one bottle of Heinken cost me more than a six pack does in an off licence in Newry....€6-60 for a pint of Guinness....

I wasnt long getting the Scousers to move elsewhere....



Its amazing what those pubs are getting away with ....and I remember us feeling sorry for the Scandinavians and the sort of dough they were being charged for a glass of beer :-\

Baby cut from mother found alive

Darlene Haynes was eight months pregnant at the time of her death

A baby who was cut from her mother's womb has been found alive two days after the woman's body was discovered, US police have said.

A woman who had the baby with her when found in New Hampshire was charged with being a fugitive from justice.

The girl was said to be in "fairly good health," according to Worcester police Sergeant Kerry Hazelhurst.

The body of her mother, Darlene Haynes, 23, was found in her apartment on Monday, apparently killed days before.

Police named the arrested woman as Julie Corey, 35, described as an acquaintance of Ms Haynes.

She was arrested at a shelter in Plymouth, New Hampshire, after staff became suspicious of her and notified police.

She had told staff she was the mother of the six-day-old baby, the Union Leader newspaper reported.

A male companion with her at the time was questioned by police, but was later released.

Darlene Haynes' body was found in her apartment in Massachusetts on Monday after her landlord noticed a "horrifying smell".

A post-mortem examination revealed that her foetus was missing, and that she had head injuries, but the exact cause of death has yet to be determined.

Toxicology tests were being carried out, Worcester Police Detective Captain Edward McGinn Jr said.

The last known contact anyone had with Ms Haynes was a week ago when she sent a text message to a friend saying she was having drinks with a friend in her apartment.

Ms Haynes had three other girls - aged five years, three years and 18 months.

It is not the first such case in the US.

Lisa Montgomery was given a death sentence two years ago for murdering Bobbi Jo Stinnett, whose foetus she removed. The baby girl survived.
