(Scroll down for video) A man was caught on video intentionally burying cars with his snowplow, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The snowplow driver who calls himself Dogg has been making a lot of people angry.

Mark Hussey, who plows the streets of Lowell, Massachusetts, for a private contractor, recorded a video of himself as he buried cars in snow and blocked driveways by pushing mountains of snow. On the video he can be seen enjoying every minute of it.

The video, which was posted on YouTube, has drawn attention to the winter-weary on the Web and confirmed the fears of some people that the snowplow drivers make life more difficult on purpose, leaving the roads clear, but everyone else stuck.

Hussey recorded his actions through the windshield of his plow after a snowstorm dropped two feet of snow on the area. The local television news station interviewed the 47-year-old, whose video showed him overjoyed while doing his job.

"Oh, sorry. Did your car get buried down there?" Dogg is heard at one point as a sedan got buried in snow. "Do you want to find your car? Come to see me. I'll let you know where your car is," he added.

Needless to say, residents were not amused. Al Bedard, who was digging out after Dogg, told the television news station: "It's very unfair. I do not want to shovel after him. It's very annoying."

Dogg said he's just doing his job, which is to widen the streets. There is no doubt that he enjoys it.
He said in his video: "If you are plowing, I know that you are not having as much fun as I am."

New York City school teacher uses whipping and killing slaves examples to teach math

Slavery math question 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A New York City school caused uproar after a teacher used examples of killing and whipping slaves to teach math, according to press reports in New York.

The school principal said that she was appalled by the assignment that used scenarios of killing slaves and beatings to teach math.
Adele Schroeter has ordered sensitivity training for all staff at Public School 59 in Manhattan after the revelation last month.

The teacher in question wrote fourth grade homework questions that mixed math and social studies, education officials said. The teacher then wrote questions, including One question cited the number of slaves who died while taking over a boat.

The question was how many slaves were still alive. The other question involved a slave who was whipped five times a day and the example asked students to calculate how many times a month the slave was hit.

A teacher said that she was surprised by the questions and later refused to turn the worksheet into another class.
"I looked at the questions and I was like, 'Wow! This is a little inappropriate,'" Harding Aziza told a local newspaper, saying that the questions were insensitive and violent.

"I found it alarming that this would happen in a state that you would think was more liberal," Harding said.
The Education Department said the situation was obviously unacceptable. It said that appropriate disciplinary action would be taken.

(Scroll down for video) A teen was arrested and charged after police found the remains of a little girl inside his closet, according to police reports in Colorado.

A detective said that the 18-year-old man is accused of kidnapping and murder of a suburban Denver school girl as he kept some of the remains of the girl in a basement in a house he shared with his mother.

Luis Lopez of the Westminster police testified Friday that the teen, Austin Sigg, had been on the radar of investigators even before a neighbor called a tip line suggesting that they pay him a visit.

Two FBI agents responded and took a DNA sample from Sigg, four days before his mother called to say he confessed to killing the 10-year-old girl, Jessica Ridgeway.

Sigg’s mother also told authorities of the human remains.
Lopez said that the remains were later identified as Jessica and DNA linked him to the remains of Jessica and clothing. He said that police found no semen.

Sigg is charged with murder, kidnapping, sexual assault and robbery. Prosecutors have also added three counts of sexual exploitation of a child, because child pornography was allegedly found during the investigation.

Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler is making a surprise political comeback, this time in India, according to press reports in the United States.
Adolf Hitler is a candidate for this year’s election in India.

A small northeastern Indian state of Meghalaya has a special fascination for interesting and sometimes controversial names.

Among the 345 political candidates running for the state assembly are Frankenstein and Hitler, among other U.S. presidential sounding names.

The 54-year-old man, who is a father of three, already won three state assembly elections with little controversy for being named after the Nazi dictator.

His father had worked with the British army, but apparently developed a fascination with the archenemy of Britain, naming his son Adolf Lu Hitler.

"I know at one point of time Adolf Hitler was the most hated person on Earth during the genocide of the Jews. But my father said that putting Lu in the middle, would make me different," Hitler told newsreporters from the small village of Mansingre, 125 miles west of Gauhati, the capital of the neighboring state of Assam.

Hitler said that his name has not prevented him from traveling the world, including the United States and Germany.
"I never had trouble getting a visa, but I was asked many times why I have such a name. I always say that I did not choose my name," Hitler said.
