Matthew Allen
A teen survived despite being lost in the woods alone for two months, according to press reports in Australia.

The Australian teen, who is 18-years-old, was found alive after surviving more than two months in the woods in northern Sydney.

Matthew Allen was reported missing after he did not return home in late November, according to the Australian press. Despite extensive searches by police and emergency workers, there was no sign of the teen.

Allen did not take along his phone or access his bank accounts while he was away, so his family feared the worst.
But last Saturday, two hikers found Allen lying in dense growths. He had lost half his body weight, was extremely disoriented and covered with insects and leeches, according to police.

Officials also said that Allen was suffering from gangrene in the lower legs and feet.
A rescue helicopter took the dehydrated teen to a local hospital, where he was reunited with his family.
"His family is delighted that he is alive and well," Detective Inspector Glyn Baker, told the local television news station.

Despite the severe exhaustion, Allen was able to tell his rescuers that he had only survived by drinking the water of a stream that was almost dry. During the two months he was missing, Sydney temperatures experienced a record heat wave.
Police believe there is more to the story, but have not yet had the opportunity to talk to Allen about what happened to him in the woods.

Man sues business owner after wife fell in love with another man at work

By: John Roberts
A man sued his wife’s employer after she fell in love with another man at work.

Ramnath Dessie, filed a lawsuit against FirstBank, in Johannesburg, South Africa, claiming that the bank was responsible for his wife’s affair with another man.

He alleged that the company was responsible for the pain and suffering that resulted from the case because his wife met the man while working at the bank.
The Judge, Willis, called the lawsuit “bizarre”. The Judge dismissed the claim and he ordered Dessie to pay the bank’s lawyer fees and court costs.

In the decision the judge wrote:
“I know that litigants can be imaginative in Johannesburg, but this one deserves a special prize, there’s no such claim recognized in our common law.I am quite confident that no matter how much judges of this division may try to develop the common law, we are not, in this country, going to start allowing awards of damages against employers because people fall in love while they are at work.
This happens all the time. It has happened and will no doubt continue to happen until the cows come home.” Judge Willis wrote.

An Ohio man said he was duped by an alleged Faberge fraudster in a luxury gallery in Central Park, a new $1.2 million lawsuit claims.

The man shelled out more than $165,000 for five fakes in a real old Russian bazaar at the Essex Gallery House in August 2002, the court documents state.

A New Jersey dealer named Ronald Safdieh, boasting experience in Russian antiques, allegedly marketed fantasy objects for a company called José de Bellas Artes, the documents state.

At the time, David Butt, 59, of Dayton, Ohio, was dazzled by the items laid out at the gallery.

Butt allegedly only discovered that he had been duped when he went to an auction of Antiques Roadshow in Cincinnati in the summer of 2012 and the New York City expert considered the pieces to be fakes.

The man was shocked. Safdieh, whose shop in the Essex House closed in 2009, denied the allegations.

“I sold both genuine antiques and new pieces, but never made false statements,” he said, adding: "People believe what they want to believe.”

Dog scheduled to be killed after owner abandoned it for being gay

By: Ryan Lee Hall
The dog with its new owner Stephanie Fryns
(Scroll down for video) In a shocking case which angered many people, a dog owner decided that his dog does not deserve to live because the dog was “gay.”

According to reports, the owner claimed that the dog was seen repeatedly “bent over” another male dog, therefore, in the mind of the owner, the dog is gay.
The owner apparently did not know that a dog’s being "bent over" or humping behavior is often a sign of dominance in dogs, rather than something to indicate the sexual orientation of a dog.

The dog owner, who lives in Tennessee, took the dog to a shelter because he did not want a gay dog. Workers at the overcrowded shelter decided to euthanize the “gay” dog. 

One animal rights group in Jackson, Tennessee, tried to find a home for the dog, so they posted the address and phone number of the shelter, resulting in hundreds of phone calls to the shelter. People asked the shelter not to kill the dog until a good home was found.

Luckily, at the last minute, the dog was saved by an animal lover with a good heart. Veterinary Stephanie Fryns rescued the dog. She named it Elton.

A male dog on top of another male dog is not considered conclusive evidence of it being gay, according to reports. Biologists have recorded homosexual activity in over 450 species, including flamingos, bison and beetles.

Gay rights activists have looked as these reports of animal homosexuality as proof that same-sex couples are a natural phenomenon.

Syrian Electronic Army 
Several days ago Israel attacked targets inside Syria, according to press reports in the Middle East.

Now, several hours after Damascus admitted that the attack took place, an organization calling itself the Syrian Electronic Army, said: "We have hacked 50 Israeli websites in central Israel."
Syrian officials were quick to say that the attack would face a harsh response, however, it is doubtful that this is what they truly meant.

"After Israel attacked our Center for Scientific Research in rural Damascus, we decided to respond, but in our own way. The Syrian Electronic Army hacked dozens of websites of the Zionist entity," the hacker group's website, said.
The hackers, who are affiliated with the regime of President Bashar Assad said on its facebook page that further attacks can be expected and that it will show the world that the Syrian Electronic Army is willing to take on anyone who threatens pure Syrian lands.

Despite the harsh words, a short review of the websites attacked revealed no connection between them and Israel's security.

In a list published by the hackers, it named websites of vacation locations in northern Israel, the website of a small town, websites that offer workshops on nutrition and diet, a website that offers a course in online advertising, a website for alternative medicine and even a website that displays time from around the world.

By: Ryan Lee Hall
Cornerstone ceremony in Budapest 
With all the bad news for the Jewish community coming out of Europe recently, there is some good news for a change.

The construction of the first synagogue in Budapest in 80 years began this week, as the first stone was laid in a ceremony, the City Council of the Csepel district of the city, said this week.

"There has been no new synagogue built in Budapest for 80 years. Our council has contributed to this project through the provision of land for the construction for free," it said in a statement.

Construction began on the same date as the world celebrated Holocaust Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the 1945 liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
The council said that the construction of the synagogue is expected to be completed in 2014.
The synagogue, is being built to act as a meeting point for religious and cultural events, which is expected to house 120 people at a time. 

During the ceremony, the historian Szilard Nemeth said: "Like all other parts of the country, Csepel was affected by the persecution of the Jews, and by World War II. According to our information, 960 people of Jewish descent were deported from Csepel.
Only 60 returned, with some of them still alive today," he said.
The ceremony was also attended by Cardinal Peter Biboros, Defence Minister Csaba Hende, and Israeli Ambassador Ilan Mor.
During World War II, some 450,000 Hungarian Jews were deported and murdered by the Nazis.

Tokyo Japan receives its first Jewish women's ritual bath

By: Sarah Weiss
New ritual bath in Tokyo Japan 
Jewish women in Japan received some exciting news this week, according to press reports in New York.

Twelve years of planning and finally the Jewish female population of Tokyo has its first ritual bath.

Jewish women in Tokyo reported that previously they had to travel 325 miles to the nearest Jewish ritual bath in the city of Kobe.

Rabbi Sudakevich and his wife have been working on the project for years and an Israeli resident of Kobe, Yair Levy, helped finance the construction of the ritual bath.

The ritual bath was inaugurated last week in the presence of the Israeli ambassador in Japan, and was named Mikvah Mordechai, in memory of the father of Yair.

Levy, owner of  cosmetics and jewelry stores in Japan, told news reporters that before starting a new business, he wanted to do a good deed.

A major obstacle to the construction of the ritual bath was the fact that Japanese construction companies turned down the job because they had no experience in building such a facility.

Jewish man hospitalized in Yemen after suffering anti Jewish beating

Few remaining Jews in Yemen 
Yemen’s Jewish community is fuming after one of the few Jews left in the country was beaten in an anti Jewish attack, according to press reports in Israel.

Although the Jewish population of Yemen has long been in decline, the Jews who remained in the nation's southern Arabian Peninsula remain the target of attacks.

Members of the Jewish community in the Yemen central city of Rada'a, south of the capital Sanaa, said Wednesday that resident Joseph Re'ati was beaten in a  anti-Semitic attack. He was hospitalized in very serious condition.

Jews in Yemen are apparently protected by the government, but in reality the situation has not improved. After becoming targets of attacks by Islamist elements, many Yemeni Jews have chosen to leave their homeland in recent years.

Largely impoverished Yemen has maintained a fragile stability for some time, although the country has seen violence soar since protesters inspired by the Arab Spring took to the streets in January 2011. The uprising led to the ouster of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Foreign media recently reported about Israeli efforts to help the rest of the small Jewish community of Yemen to immigrate to Israel.

Welch, who took a photo of the bill from another server and uploaded it to the internet, defended her right to publicize the receipt. "I thought the note was insulting, but also funny," she told a news website. "I thought that other people will find it entertaining," she added.

Bell, who is a pastor at the Truth in the World Deliverance Church Ministries, was not amused, and she called the manager to complain against Welch.

"It was an oversight in my character and judgment," Bell told a news website, who added that she did not realize that so many people will realize that it is her signature. She also told the news website that her friends called her to tell her that she is viral all over the internet.

Ken Wilman with his dog and the whale vomit 
A man got really lucky after finding vomit on the beach.

Time to get to know whale vomit. A man taking his dog for a walk along the beach found a deposit of whale vomit. Now, he could stand to earn more than $250,000 from the disgusting find.

The reason whale vomit is so expensive is because perfume companies use the vomit to manufacture perfume. The substance, which stinks when it first hits land becomes a huge asset when its dried in the sun and is used to prolong the scent of perfume.

Ken Wilman's dog began sniffing the substance known as ambergris, while walking on the beach at Morecambe England. Wilman went to investigate, picked up the stone-like object, gave it a smell and then dropped like a bad habit. Wilman told the a television news station: "When I picked it up and smelled it, I put it back down.”

Wilman left the beach, but the stinking discovery was on his mind. He did some research and discovered that the stone was likely ambergris. So he then returned to the beach and recovered the object that weighed three kilos. A French trader has already offered him more than $250,000.
