The attacks against Jews on the European continent continues with two new victims of anti-Semitic attacks this week alone in France, according to police reports in France.

Two young Jews were attacked in France this week, one in Marseille and another at the same school of Toulouse, where a gunman killed a Jewish rabbi and three children in March 2012.

On Monday, a young man with a Star of David pendant was assaulted outside the main railway station of Marseille Gare Saint-Charles, by a group of men who approached him on a motorcycle, shouted anti-Semitic slurs against him, beat him, stole his MP3 player and 100 euros, pulled the medallion from his neck and fled the scene. Police have made no arrests in that case.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday at the school entrance of Or Torah in Toulouse, which was renamed from Otzar Hatorah after the shooting last year, a student who was leaving school wearing a yarmulke was approached by a woman brandishing a knife.

School guards immediately arrested the woman and she was subsequently sent to a psychiatric detention center. She did not reveal the reason for trying to attack the student.

Since the attack in March against the school in Toulouse, anti-Semitic incidents in France have increased by 45 percent, reported SPCJ, the security service of the French Jewish community. Eugene Caselli, president of the Urban Community of Marseille Provence Métropole, expressed deep indignation and outrage at this act of racist and unacceptable violence."

"The dress Sarah chose for Tuesday's inauguration of the 19th Knesset was a form-fitting lace top with a transparent look, except for a black band that covered her bust, with her waist on full display. Who does she think she is? Beyonce at the Super Bowl?" The journalist wrote.

New York City to ban foam cups and containers

Foam cups 
By: David Ross

New York City is known for clamping down on New Yorkers in every part of their lives and now foam cups and containers are about to get banned.

Foam containers and cups might get banned from the menu at takeout food shops in the largest city in the nation.

A sanitation official said this week that the idea is being discussed, but it is too early to say what will be recommended in a forthcoming report on increasing recycling rates.

Foam, sometimes sold under the trade name Styrofoam, has long been popular among restaurants because of being lightweight and heat retaining, but environmentalists complain that it takes years to decompose in the trash. Some communities across the country have banned the use of foam at restaurants for this reason.

As New York authorities prepare a report on how to double the recycling rate of the city, foam, is "one of the things that you have to watch," Department of Sanitation Deputy Commissioner Ron Gonen said this week.

"It may or may not be a component of the overall plan due in a few weeks,” Gonen, who oversees recycling initiatives and environmental sustainability, said.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg last year set a goal to recycle 30 percent of household waste in the city by 2017, an increase of the current 15 percent. “The city is always willing to look at new ways to reduce waste that cannot be recycled or reused," spokesperson John McCarthy said this week.

World oldest bird gives birth at age 62

World's oldest bird to give birth 
By: David Ross

The world’s oldest bird just gave birth at the age of 62, according to official reports in Japan.

The oldest known wild bird living in the world has given birth to a healthy baby. The bird, which is 62-years-old, is named Wisdom. It last made headlines in 2011, when the bird survived the Japanese tsunami.

Wisdom has defied the odds in many ways: It has lived nearly twice the average for its type of bird. It was given its name after being tagged by a U.S. Geological Survey researcher in 1956.

The USGS said in a statement that since it was tagged, Wisdom has flown an estimated 2 million to 3 million miles, or four to six trips from the Earth to the Moon and back again with plenty of miles to spare.

"While the process of tagging a bird has not changed much over the past century, the information provided by birds marked with a simple numbered metal band has transformed our knowledge of birds," an expert said.

Although there have been other birds spotted in the wild estimated to be around 50-years-old, Wisdom is the only documented bird of having given birth at such an advanced age. However, some scientists may have seen the feat coming years ago, when Wisdom gave birth and has given birth to a total of five birds since 2006.

Robbins, was 40-years-old when he first tagged Wisdom in 1956.
In 2001, Robbins rediscovered Wisdom, while helping the USGS determine its age.

In the past, Victoria’s Secret, has donated millions of dollars to cancer research.

Now, they will help cancer survivors in a more personal way. Victoria’s Secret is looking into making Mastectomy Bras for cancer survivors.

It all started with one devoted daughter, who wanted to help her mother. Allana Maiden, 27, was unhappy that her mother Debbie Barrett, a breast cancer survivor, had trouble finding bras that fit.

Every time Barrett bought a new bra she had to travel over an hour to a store that carries a special bra that fits her well. The cost of that bra is about $70.

"For my mother it is a big job just to get a bra, so I wanted her to have a more positive experience when shopping for one," Maiden said.

She decided to take matters into her own hands, as she started a petition on Change.org asking Victoria’s Secret, to manufacture mastectomy bras. She managed to get 120,000 signatures in less than two weeks.

Maiden and her mother, presented their petition to Victoria’s Secret, and now the company is considering offering a breast cancer “survivor line”.

According to reports, when Victoria's Secret learned of the petition, they began to research the product and they plan to fly the mother-daughter team to the headquarters of Limited Brands in Columbus, Ohio, which owns Victoria's Secret, to discuss ideas with researchers and executives.

Lynsi Torres 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) A young woman has become the youngest female billionaire in the United States, according to press reports in the United States.

The youngest female billionaire in U.S. has made her fortune from fast food.

But the story of Lynsi Torres, the 30-year-old owner and President of the beloved In-N-Out Burger chain, remains largely a mystery.
Torres, who has no college degree and little business training, inherited the West Coast-based company of her grandparents, Harry and Esther Snyder. The Torres family has transformed the original, tiny drive-thru store to an estimated $1.1 billion.

The Christian-themed chain, founded in 1948, now includes nearly 280 stores in five states and has a lot of fans, including billionaire Warren Buffett. Lines of loyal customers line up for hours before the opening of a new store to get a taste of the beloved restaurant chain.

"They have done a fantastic job of building and maintaining a kind of cult," an expert in the fast food industry told the press.
Despite the success, Torres has remained silent about her public and private life and rarely gives interviews.
The burger heiress, who has been married three times, was named head of the company in 2010 after a series of deaths in the family.

Harry Snyder died in 1976. His second son, Rich, served as CEO until he died in a plane crash in 1993 at the early age of 41.
Torres’ father, Harry Guy Snyder, then took over and led the chain of 140 restaurants before he died of an overdose of prescription drugs in 1999.

Torres’ grandmother, Esther Snyder, remained in control of the company until her death at age 86 in 2006. Torres received half ownership of the company when she turned 30 and will get the second half when she celebrates her 35th birthday.

To make sure everything was going according to plan, a contract was signed by both parties. Rachel will receive $50 if she resists facebook until April 15. She will get another $150 if she stays off facebook until June 26. She gave her father the password of the account in order to change the password and prevent access to her account.

According to the contract, Rachel intends to use the proceeds for stuff.
Paul Baier said that Rachel came up with the plan. "Almost always she wanted and needed money because she was not finding babysitting jobs. She is an honor student, but she said that facebook can be a distraction," Paul said.

Rachel originally asked for $70, but then, as a skilled negotiator, she returned and asked for $200. "When she realized that it would be for five months, she wanted an amount that really excites her," Paul said.

Paul hopes that this might start a trend. "I've noticed that she is part of a generation of children growing up in facebook. She has been in it for two years, full time. However, she plans to continue using facebook after the contract ends."
The contract expires on the last day of school. So far, she has no regrets.
