By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) Many people ran outside to see the angel in the sky over Florida, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Many South Florida residents believe they saw an angel in the sky on the day the new pope was named.
Most saw an angel in the clouds and took their cameras to document the vision.

For some, it was a clear sign from heaven, perhaps a message from God himself, showing his satisfaction at the election of the first Latin American pope as the 267th successor to St. Peter.

While most felt that the cloud looked like an angel, and was a beautiful sign from above, others saw the cloud somewhat less angelic.

One woman thought the cloud looked like a monkey from the sea, while another said that he thought it is a non human shape.
Many people shared their pictures showing different angles of the cloud angel.

More than 34,000 people have liked the photo on facebook and hundreds of people have shared their feelings about what it means.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

It's a bit like taking a picture of your favorite celebrity to the salon and asking for the same look. Except in this case, people are not asking for her hairstyle, they want the nose.

After a wave of British women flocked to their plastic surgeons to capture the charm of Kate's nose, the trend has officially jumped over the Atlantic ocean.
Dozens of U.S. women are now asking their surgeons to fit them with the Kate Middleton nose.

"A couple of months ago, these women started coming to my office and asking for Kate Middleton's nose," Doctor Stephen T. Greenberg, a Manhattan plastic surgeon and author of “A Little Nip, Tuck a little”, told a New York newspaper. "It has become so popular that we have on file dozens of Kate Middleton photos to show to patients when they come to get the procedure done," he added.

Greenberg said that 20 Kate nose jobs were scheduled in a month, for a total of $7,000.
Another doctor, Thomas Romo, said he has completed about 100 of the procedures, for about $11,000 each.

"They are looking for a natural nose of a beautiful woman and the duchess is in the news all the time," Romo said. "Before her, we used to get a lot of people want Jennifer Aniston's nose, but now Kate Middleton is everywhere and everyone admires her nose," he said.
Women described her nose as "cute", "not too big or too small", "feminine" and "adorable".Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

By: Sarah Weiss

A man was arrested and charged after being caught intentionally infecting people with HIV, according to police reports in Switzerland.

The music teacher and unlicensed acupuncturist in Switzerland was indicted on charges of deliberately infecting 16 people with HIV between 2001 and 2005.

A panel of five judges in Bern-Mitelland regional court accused Maurice Goeller, 53, who does not have HIV, of spreading the human disease and causing serious bodily harm.

The regional prosecutor's office said in a statement that most Goeller victims were students of Goeller’s music school.
Prosecutors said he practiced as an unlicensed acupuncturist, allegedly using work as an excuse to insert into his clients needles infected with the virus that causes AIDS.

Authorities began investigating Goeller after a complaint in 2005 by student Thomas Kaiser, who was diagnosed as HIV positive and doctors said that he could only have been infected from Goeller’s injections.

Investigators eventually discovered another 15 with similar stories.
Goeller denies any malice, or even performing acupuncture.
A second suspect was identified initially, but then dismissed when no evidence confirming their participation could be found.

Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli chosen as the new spokesperson for Israel

Bar Refaeli 
By: Shifra Unger

The sexy Jewish Israeli supermodel, Bar Refaeli, was chosen as the new spokesperson of the State of Israel, according to press reports in Israel.

However, the recent decision of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to use supermodel Bar Refaeli use its new spokesperson in a new public diplomacy campaign has been criticized by local advocacy groups, who claim that using her would do a disservice to the State of Israel.

Refaeli was chosen last month to headline a new Israeli public diplomacy campaign highlighting how Israel’s technological advances and inventions contribute to the daily lives of millions of people worldwide.

The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel and the Judicial Zionism students’ Forum have appealed to the Foreign Ministry Director General Rafi Barak to cancel the new campaign, saying that Refaeli, who did not serve in the Israel Defense Forces, is not the right person to represent the country.

Refaeli, postponed her compulsory IDF service saying that it would interfere with her career as an international supermodel. She was granted a deferment of service in 2002, but her second request was denied. In 2003, when the military ordered her to report for duty, she married a family acquaintance in order to obtain exemption from service. The couple divorced within weeks, as soon as her exemption was secured.

A statement from the Foreign Ministry said: “Refaeli is considered one of the most beautiful women in the world and is widely recognized as an Israeli. There is no reason to bring up the past when it comes to a campaign of public diplomacy of this kind."
