Texas woman finds long snake baked into her loaf of bread

Snake baked into bread 
By: Moses Gold

A woman was shocked to discover a snake baked into her loaf of bread she just bought at her local bake shop, according to press reports in Texas, and images uploaded to the internet.

Last week, a user at a popular social media website posted an image of what appeared to be a snake baked into the loaf of bread. "My aunt found a long snake in her loaf of bread", the user wrote along with the image.

The user, humanimalcracker confirmed in the comments section that the bread in question was a loaf bought from the bake shop known as Mrs. Baird, a chain owned by Bimbo Bakeries. Mrs. Baird is popular in Texas and surrounding states.

Not surprisingly, Mrs. Baird bake shop denied that the story is true. "Such statements are almost never true," the bakery said in a statement. "This is not something you want to look at and say, 'Yes, this could have happened,’ This is a very strange statement," the bakery also said.

An employee of Mrs. Baird added that in the 25 years he has worked with Mrs. Baird, he had never heard of any incident like this.
“Wow, is all I can say. From now on, I have another thing to watch out for when buying bread. The snake probably became stuck in the sticky dough somehow,” Teresa Humphries, 49, of San Antonio, Texas told YourJewishNews.com after seeing the images.
The company also released an official statement regarding the snake incident.

“Mrs. Baird's Bakeries has a 105 year history of baking the highest quality, fresh products to consumers. This includes responding to consumer questions at the right time. Our customer service team has tried several times to identify the consumer who goes by the Reddit username "humanimalcracker" for a product sample for analysis.

According to Marshall Maddox, vice president of manufacturing services, the dubious area of bread in the photo is very likely a result of burn mass that was baked into bread. While this is a rare occurrence, it is not uncommon for consumers to confuse the burned mass for a foreign object. We ask that the person who posted the photo contact us at 800-984-0989 so we can arrange for an independent laboratory to examine the material in question.”

Dog saves owner from car crash after keeping him warm for 4 days

Boydy the dog 
By: Moses Gold

An elderly man is still alive after a horrific car crash thanks to his beloved dog, according to rescue workers in Australia.

The dog helped save the life of its owner after the man was pinned after a car accident on a remote farm in Australia.
Herbert Schutz, 76, drove his car into a tree near Rylstone, on Friday. When he tried to escape from the wreckage, the car rolled over on top of him.

Schutz was rescued Monday night by neighbors after his daughter, who grew concerned when she could not reach him, contact them.
Schutz was found covered in hair from an Australian Kelpie dog named Boydy, whose body heat helped Schutz battle temperatures as low as 4 degrees Celsius or 39 Fahrenheit, in the four days he was trapped without food or water.

''Even when we found the old man, the dog ran straight to him and hugged him. It did not want to leave him even then,'' Eric Merrity, a neighbor said.

“We all know that dogs are loyal pets. Now, we have an additional real life story to tell our kids about lovely pets,” Brenda Brexton, 42, of Victoria, Australia told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the dog.

“The man is definitely still alive thanks to his dog. He would have froze to death as a result of the cold temperatures since he had no food or water to stabilize his body heat for four days,” a rescue worker at the scene said.
Schutz remains in serious condition at a hospital.

Lights, Camera, Mazeltov! Enter Bar/Bat Mitzvah Video Contest and Win a Free Trip to Israel

Mazeltov.com contest 
By: Moses Gold

Mazeltov.com announced its first Bar/Bat Mitzvah Video Contest “What It Means To Me!” Bar/Bat Mitzvah boys and girls; sharing of experiences of how young people can do good things for others. First prize is a Round-trip ticket on El Al Airlines to Israel. Please visit mazeltov.com/Contest for complete contest rules and details.

MAZELTOV.COM, an event-centric social-network, with a deep-rooted emphasis on charitable giving. The word “Mazeltov!” has been adopted by people of all faiths from around the globe, but for Jews, this word carries with it a rich history and tradition.

Our story started in 1995, when the internet was just beginning to take off. Like many forward-thinking technology buffs at that time, I snatched up the domain name: Mazeltov.com. While having a full-time job, and putting two sons through college, I had little time to devote turning my dream website into a reality. But in the dozen or so years that followed, I never lost my focus or vision of what this social event network could do for the Jewish community and beyond. Then in 2011, with the help of a dedicated and brilliant team of collaborators, we crafted Mazeltov.com into what it is today. With our official launch on Jan. 1, 2013, we became a premier event-focused social-networking site in the Jewish community

One part Facebook, one part Evite, with aspects of Groupon and the Yellow Pages thrown in, Mazeltov.com offers a one-stop shop for planning and celebrating weddings, Bar-Mitzvah’s and other special events. As an integral part of Judaism, we also wanted to include fundraising events and campaigns, extending our gift-giving mission of contributing to Tzedakah in honor of all “simchas” and joys, across the world.

Mazeltov.com’s main goal is to provide people with a central, virtual location, from which to organize and communicate information about an event. For couples planning a wedding, the site can be used to send out electronic invitations to guests, keep track of RSVPs, and provide updates and exchange messages with attendees, and share videos and photos of the big day. The couple also can access a directory of wedding-related businesses to help with their planning. Guests, meanwhile, can shop for gifts while automatically contributing a portion of their spending to charity. They can even send money to the bride and bridegroom via PayPal in an electronic “MazelCard.” The shopping and directory portions of the site are still under development, but we expect rapid expansion as Mazeltov.com gains momentum.

Other features of the site allow you to organize all your event memories as a scrapbook, buy gifts online, ask questions in a forum, and access your videos, photos and discussions related to your events easily, while bringing a smile to your face as you announce your “mazels” to your friends and family.

As Mazeltov.com looks ahead, we are putting our focus into the mobile market. Currently, we are working with a development team in Israel’s “Silicon Valley”, to create a custom app for the iPhone & Android OS. With a new user interface, you will soon be able to create, as well as follow other people’s events, post pictures and video directly from an event, as well as have the ability to send a MazelCard on the go! We couldn’t be more excited that the future of Jewish celebration will be at Mazeltov.com!

Condom through nose 'condom challenge' becomes latest internet craze

Teen snorting condom 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) There is a new craze sweeping the internet these day and it is not pretty.

The condom challenge has become one of the latest Internet viral sensations, according to video uploaded to the internet.
To succeed, the children need to sniff condoms up their noses before pulling it out from their mouths.

However, the comments about this all around the internet has thankfully been strongly negative, with many calling the challenge "useless" and "stupid".

“Children are constantly looking for interesting and stupid things to do, but this is way over the line. If this is not stopped, children will choke to death while trying this stunt at home. Parents should be on the lookout,” Naomi Snell, 22, of Staten Island, New York told YourJewishNews.com after watching the video.

This is not the only craze going around these days.

A group of teenagers in Newcastle, started a new crazy trend. They buy a new bottle of milk, they walk out on the street and they pour the whole bottle over their heads.

Some people have been outraged at the waste of so many bottles of fresh milk, while others see it as fun and playful.

Tom Morris, 22, who is the one who uploaded the first milking video, said: “We were just in our kitchen talking about doing it outside Starbucks in Jesmond and thought it would be really funny. We did that, uploaded the video to Facebook and got a lot of likes. People seemed to enjoy it.”

His friend George Hoyland said: “The video was initially intended for our friends, we didn't expect a reaction this big. The reactions have been mixed, the comments people posted have brought a lot of laughter in our house.”

The reaction to the new craze has been mixed. “The inventive, future leaders of our country,” Barbara Spicer wrote.“This behavior is immature and a waste of money,” another wrote. SamSmurfet wrote: “Holy cow man, dairy good video. Just semi-skimming youtube when I found this.”

“The smell of sour milk is present all over our house, and the laundry pile is high!” they added.
Milking is far less dangerous than other crazes such as planking or hanging from a train.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Defendant caught smuggling pet duck into courthouse

Michael Hubbard 
By: John Roberts

A defendant decided to try his luck and smuggle his favorite pet into a courthouse, perhaps for good luck, according to court officials in Hawaii.

Safety Inspectors at the Honolulu courthouse noticed something moving inside the bag of the defendant, as it passed through an X-ray machine, earlier this week.

After initially refusing to open it, the owner of the bag reluctantly revealed that his pet was inside. When he opened the bag, the screeners found a live duck and a bottle of beer inside, the Department of Public Safety spokesperson, Toni Schwartz said.

Police told defendant Michael Hubbard that his pet and beverage are not allowed inside the Circuit Court, so the man left. He returned shortly thereafter and asked police to take care of his things while he went inside to make an appointment, Schwartz said, adding that visitors can leave their things outside at their own risk.

Hubbard went to schedule his appointment, while the duck waited outside. Hubbard has two outstanding assault cases against him in court, according to court records.

“The defendant is lucky that screeners were able to stop him from entering the court. I can’t imagine what the judge would have done to this man if his duck disrupted the court session. He could have faced some jail time. I think that Hubbard got lucky after all,” Marlene Nix, 47, of Victoria, Australia told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the incident.
Schwartz also said that Hubbard seemed intoxicated.

"We recommend people not bring their pets to the court," Schwartz said. "Believe it or not, this is not an unusual occurrence. Many people try to take their pets to the courts," he added.
“These animals are usually dogs,” he continued.

"A duck is unusual," he said. "I do not think we've encountered that before," he concluded.

Benjamin Netanyahu turns into hilarious comedian on Israeli television show

Netanyahu and his lookalike on television show 
By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned into a hilarious comedian on an Israeli television show in order to entertain the Israeli people, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The Prime Minister appeared pretty relaxed in comparison to his usual serious face during an appearance on the Israeli comedy television show, "Eretz Nehaderet", or A Wonderful Country, to celebrate the Israeli independence day.

Netanyahu seemed happy and at peace as he sat next to Mariano Edelman, a Netanyahu comedian lookalike who usually impersonates him on the weekly program.

The two men wore identical black suits, white shirts and blue ties. Netanyahu can be seen on the video looking behind the comedian’s tie to make sure their white shirt’s matched.

Netanyahu then took the opportunity to joke at the expense of his lookalike, political opponents, and even his political partners, including Yair Lapid, the new Israeli Finance Minister and main coalition partner of Netanyahu, who initially made his name as a television presenter.

Amid a seemingly serious description of his duties on the day of independence, the Prime Minister suddenly asked the host: "What ministry would you like, education or finance?"
When the presenter was perplexed, Netanyahu continued: "People I know all end up in politics, so let's get it over with right now."

“I saw the show and I loved it, as it showed the human side of Benjamin Netanyahu. He can be a serious guy and strong leader as well as a normal average funny man,” Albert Lucero, 32, of Queensland, Australia told YourJewishNews.com after watching the video.Mobile video not loading?

Teacher arrested after having sex with student in Walmart parking lot

Amanda Kay Miller 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) A teacher was arrested after allegedly having sex with her underage student in a Walmart parking lot, according to police reports in Maryland.

Amanda Kay Miller, 35, of Whiteford, Maryland is accused of having sex with her 15-year-old student and performing oral sex on him.

Miller, has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor, a third degree sexual offense and two counts of fourth-degree sexual offense.

Officials received a tip about the alleged abuse, and met with the student. During the interview, the student told detectives that he had sex with his teacher many times. According to the police report, the 10th grader, told investigators that he communicated with Miller through text messages, phone calls and they even exchanged nude photos with each others.

A school system spokesperson said Tuesday that Miller had been placed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

“You know how it is. Teenage male students will never turn down the advances of their good looking female teacher, but they do tend to brag about it to their friends, which in this case led to the teacher’s arrest,” Jessica Rogers, 21, from Carroll County, Maryland told YourJewishNews.com.

This is not the first time a teacher had a sexual relationship with her student. The Special-Ed teacher was jailed after becoming pregnant by her underage student. McKenzy Kelly Watson, 35, a former teacher from San Diego, California, was sentenced to one year in county jail and three years probation but she will be release early from prison after she revealed that she was pregnant.

Watson met the boy when he was a student in her class at New Haven Youth & Family Services, a residential and educational center that treats children 8 to 17-year-olds who suffer from behavioral and emotional problems. She met the 16-year-old student and they had unprotected sex.

Surprisingly, Watson will not have to register as a sex offender, but is banned from teaching. Watson now works in accounting, according to reports. The judge, ordered the defendant to stay away from the baby’s father except to notify him via a third party about pregnancy-related information. The teenager will also be allowed to attend the birth.

Teenager who got evicted from mother’s house fights back by pooping on porch

Jorge Jonathan Cruz-Blanco 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A Florida teenager was upset when he was asked to leave his mother’s house, so he fought back and was arrested.

The 19-year-old from New Port Richey, Florida fought with his stepfather who evicted him from the house. The angry teenager then pooped on the porch, before police were called.

Jorge Jonathan Cruz-Blanco was served with an eviction notice which made him very upset and he fought back. Police were called and Cruz-Blanco was arrested. Deputies said that the teen pushed his stepfather and pooped on the porch.

Kenneth Pangborn said his stepson did not have a job and was not going to school, so he was kicked out of the house.

“Teens will be teens. Some of them want to sit around and party all day. The stepfather evicted the teen to teach him to take responsibility for his own future. I hope he was forced to pick up the poop,” Jason Miller, 51, who has two teenagers in New Port Richey, Florida, told YourJewishNews.com.

According to police, after he got the eviction notice, Cruz-Blanco threw things around the house and pushed the 72-year-old man to the ground. Then he left, but not before pooping on the porch.

When officers arrived, Cruz-Blanco explained that he had to use the bathroom while outside of the house, so he dropped his pants and left the mess on the porch. Cruz-Blanco was arrested on charges of battery to a person over 65-years-old.

There is a new place to meet hot women. It is the new shoe shine shop on Wall Street in New York City.

The Star Shine New York shop employs beautiful, young women to offer professional service with a “nice view”.

“This is the Hooters for shining shoes. Just go in, relax and enjoy the view of hot women at work,” Bryan Lawrence, 30, from Long Island, New York who works on Wall Street told YourJewishNews.com.

Kevin White Jr., 30, who works in finance, and his father, both from Queens, New York came up with the idea of an upscale shoe shine shop with hot female employees.

"We thought it might be successful," White, who opened the store three weeks ago said. "People in the financial district are so busy and stressed, this gives them an opportunity to unwind and relax.

Despite the black shorts and tight tank tops worn by all employed women, White said the store, which features large leather chairs and flat-screen televisions, is designed to produce an elegant atmosphere. White also expects to start serving beer and wine at the store in the next couple of months.

“Many of the women are students or just out of college. Even my sister, a college student is working here,” White said.

The price for a five minute shoe shine is $7, but the store offers a $3 discount for customers who come before 11:00 am.

Popular clothing brand 'Seed' slammed for posting boots arranged as swastika

Seed swastika boot 
By: Shifra Unger

A popular clothing brand came under attack after posting an image of their latest boots arranged as a swastika, according to press reports in Australia.

“Seed” has been criticized for posting what appears to be an image of a swastika on its facebook page.
The company posted a picture of two pairs of boots arranged in the shape of a swastika, the official symbol of the Nazi party in Germany during the Second World War.

It does not help that some of the boots are red and black.
The Seed facebook page received comments from a number of people indicating that the image, facing left instead of right,resembled a swastika, but the company did not respond.

However, it responded to another question from a customer asking how much the boots cost.
The photo, which was published on Wednesday, was removed this morning.

“Companies need to be extremely sensitive to its customers and to the general consumer population out there. Photos, comments and advertisements need to be looked over several times to make sure it doesn't offend anyone. It is good to see that the company took quick action to remove the photo,” Carl Mora, 70, of Sydney, Australia told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the photo.

Denise Haughley, the general manager Seed said he was "concerned" to learn that the image had been interpreted as "more than a display of colorful boots for our children."

"We like to say that this was not meant to offend, and apologize if it has caused any offense," he said.
"Please also note that the image has been removed to ensure that there is no possibility that the image is interpreted differently than expected," he added.

Pro Palestinian protesters attack Israeli singer with stink bomb in South Africa

Stink bombs 
By: Shifra Unger

Pro Palestinian protesters attacked an Israeli singer during a live performance in honor of Independence Day, with a stick bomb that disrupted the concert, according to press reports in South Africa.

The Israeli Opera Singer, Yaniv d'Or, was forced to stop his special performance in the South African city of Johannesburg, after pro-Palestinian protesters stormed the room and began chanting anti-Israeli slogans. One of the protesters threw a stink bomb on stage.

The concert continued only after d'Or pulled the violent protester backstage.
It was supposed to be an especially festive event. Hundreds of people gathered at the Lyric Theatre on Monday to celebrate the 65th birthday of the State of Israel as part of an annual celebration organized by the umbrella organization of the Jewish communities in South Africa.

Security was tightened after telephone threats were made to the Israeli embassy in Johannesburg in the days leading up to the event, which warned that pro-Palestinian organizations were planning to storm the event.

"Despite the increased security outside the theater, at some point, protesters entered the facility and started chanting slogans against the occupation and for the liberation of Palestine. They were disruptive, but when the security guards forcibly removed them from the room, I thought it was all over. Later, when we began the second part of the show, a woman sitting in the front row suddenly ran onto the stage and started screaming. Then, she threw a stink bomb on stage,” an eyewitness told an Israeli newspaper.

“I support the right of people to hold a protest, but to disrupt a private event is unacceptable. These people should be arrested and charged with trespassing. They should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Poeple paid top dollars to enjoy a night out and some violent youngsters disrupted the entire event for political gain,” David Manuel, 45, of Johannesburg, South Arica told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the attack.

60 percent of Polish students say they don't want Jewish boyfriend or girlfriend

Polish school illustration 
By: David Ross

A large percent of the Polish population would not like to have close friends who are Jewish, according to a new survey released this week.

The survey also showed that a high number of Polish schoolchildren are openly anti-Semitic.

The survey, commissioned by Jewish leaders of the city on the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising on Friday, showed that over 60 percent of respondents would be unhappy if they found out that their boyfriend or girlfriend was Jewish.

The researchers also found that 45 percent of students in the city would be unhappy if a family member turned out to be Jewish, with 44 percent saying they do not want a Jewish neighbor and another 40 percent saying they do not want to go to school with another Jew.

“These numbers paint a grim picture for Jews in Poland, and also reinforces fears that anti-Jewish sentiments are gaining momentum all across Europe. Unfortunatly, political leaders are not doing enough to combat anti-Semitism while some politial leaders, like the Golden Dawn party in Greece, are openly anti-Semitic,” Nicholas Leone, 41, of Warsaw, Poland told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the survey.

Meanwhile in Israel, Israelis are very proud of their country, except for one minority group, the ultra-Orthodox Jews, who are not, according to a new poll released this week.

The Israelis are proud of their identity and see their country as a good place to live, the new survey reveals.

According to the survey on the eve of Independence Day, 74 percent of the Jewish population in Israel are very proud of being Israeli, an increase of 5 percent compared to a similar survey last year.

Overall, 92 percent of respondents said they were very proud or fairly proud to be from Israel, an impressive figure in every way. The women who were interviewed expressed more pride in their national identity than men, and the younger generation is most proud.

As expected, an overwhelming number of ultra-Orthodox Jews said that they will not publicly display the Israeli national flag. Only 22 percent of ultra-Orthodox Jews said they would display the flag compared with 73 percent who said they would not.

More than 30 percent of the ultra-Orthodox Jews also said that they are not proud of being Israeli, according to the new study. 44 percent of the ultra-Orthodox Jews said that Israel was not a very good place to live in, while only 20 percent of secular Jews said the same.

“I think that Israeli Jews who think that it is better to live abroad should take the opportunity and try living outside Israel for a year or two. I am sure that their view will change after a period of time,” Aaron Krause, 31, of Beit Shemesh, Israel told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the new survey.

Israeli police chiefs arrive in the U.S. to meet with FBI officials

Israel Police Chief Yochanan Danin 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) Top Israeli police officials left Israel and arrived in the United States in order to meet FBI officials to discuss the latest terror attack in Boston, Massachusetts, according to press reports in Israel.

Israel Police Chief Yochanan Danino and other senior police officers left Israel on Tuesday night, and headed to Boston to meet with officials from the FBI and other law enforcement officials in the United States.

Discussions will focus on the Boston Marathon bombings and the deepening of professional cooperation between law enforcement in both countries.

The meeting comes after the top doctor of Boston Hospital credited Israeli professionals for setting up the hospital to be able to deal with terror attacks.

“Israel and the U.S. face the same enemy and suffer from similar type of terror attacks, so it only makes sense for both countries to cooperate in the war on terror,” Ralph Pike, 40, of Boston, Massachusetts told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the visit.

As we reported earlier, the top doctor at the Boston Hospital where many injured were treated credited an Israeli team who set up the hospital to be able to treat victims of terror attacks, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The doctor said that the Israeli team taught his team how to respond to such disastrous attacks.

"About two years ago, in fact, we asked the Israelis to come down here and they helped us create our disaster team so we can respond to these type of attacks," Alastair Conn, director of Emergency Services at the Massachusetts General Hospital, in response to a question about the readiness of its staff to handle the trauma of this magnitude.

In a response to a question from a reporter the doctor said: "Oh, absolutely, absolutely this is like a bomb explosion we hear in the news in Iraq or Israel or some other tragic place in the world," he said.

“After listening to this doctor I think other hospitals in the United States should invite that Israeli team in order to better prepare their hospital in the event of a terror attack,” Dennis Goldstein, 30, of Boston, Massachusetts told YourJewishNews.com after listening to the doctor’s statements.Mobile video not loading?

4 rockets fired from egypt land in Israel, Jordan

Rocket in Eilat fired from Egypt 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) Terrorists fired several rockets from Egypt that hit Israel and Jordan, according to Israeli military officials and eyewitnesses.

Two rockets which were fired from the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt reached the outskirts of the Red Sea resort city of Eilat in southern Israel on Wednesday, causing no casualties or damage, Israeli police said.

Residents heard two explosions and emergency sirens sounded in the city. Police found the remains of a rocket near a neighborhood under construction, and a second in an open area, according to residents and police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld. The local Eilat airport was closed.

An Iron Dome missile defense system that was recently placed in the Eilat was not active to intercept incoming missiles, the military said.

A group inspired by al-Qaeda, the Mujahideen Shura Council, claimed responsibility for the attack on jihadi websites, saying it had fired two Grad rockets at Eilat. The group has also claimed responsibility for previous rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip and for cross-border attacks in Sinai.

“Such attacks are unacceptable. Israeli men, women and children do not need to live in fear of constant rocket attacks. The Israeli military should severely punish the terorists behind these attacks,” Rachaeli Leventhol, 30, of Eilat, Israel told YourJewishNews.com after the attacks.

Two rockets also exploded in Jordan, according to press reports.

Airport worker announces his resignation on gorgeous cake

Chris Holmes and his letter of resignation cake 
By: Debbie Gross

A young worker who decided to retire early in life notified his boss about his plans in a very unique way, according to images uploaded to the internet.

The worker, Chris Holmes, who works at an airport, made a brave decision to pursue his dreams, and wrote all about it on frosting, in a letter of resignation cake.

A close family member published a photo of the cake to his twitter account that had the following message:

"Today is my 31st birthday, and having recently become a father, I realize how precious life is and how important it is to spend my time doing something that makes me and others happy. Therefore, I give notice of my resignation, so I can devote my time and energy to my family, and to make cake business that has grown steadily over recent years. I wish the organization and my colleagues the best for the future and remind you that, if you like this cake, you can order more to www.mrcake.co.uk."

Holmes had worked at the Border Force as an immigration officer for the past four years.

“I saw the cake and I think it is gorgeous and unique. I will definitely order my future cakes from this guy. I wish him this best of luck with his new business,” Jill Hickey, 39, of Bath, United Kingdom told YourJewishNews.com after seeing the cake.

The image of the letter of resignation cake has gone viral since first being published on Monday afternoon. For his part, Holmes says he has been "overwhelmed by the positive response from the public.”

New study shows why a real woman cannot look like the Barbie Doll

New Barbie Doll to real human comparisons 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A new study has shown several reasons why it is impossible for a real woman to achieve the looks of the Barbie Doll, according to press reports in the United Kingdom.

An infographic was created by scientists outlining the physical implications of Barbie if it were a real woman.

Data and diagrams showing the difference in proportions between the famous Mattel doll and the average U.S. woman were presented with a realistic representation of the toy.

Some of the physical characteristics of the famous doll meant Barbie is restricted in terms of movement. For example, Barbie’s feet are too small to walk with, so a real woman with feet like Barbie would have to crawl on all fours.

Barbie Doll’s long wrists would make a real woman physically unable to lift anything. With a neck twice as long but thinner than the average woman, the real Barbie woman would be unable to bear the weight of her oversized head.

The study was created to show women how unrealistic the dolls who they grew up playing with, are.
“This is great work. Some women are constantly looking to achieve the perfect look and they look towards the dolls. By exposing the fact to the public that it is impossible for a real woman to survive with such a body maybe women will start looking elsewhere,” April Lockhart, 29, of Detroit, Michigan told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the study.

Meanwhile, over in Russia, there is one woman who shot to fame for sporting a real Barbie Doll look, but some claim that she is just another fake, according to news media reports.

With her tiny waist, disturbingly sharp and prominent bust the Human Barbie has become a viral phenomenon. But her appearance seems much more human in a recent video that has questioned her claim that she does not use PhotoShop on her image portfolio.

A website has released new videos showing Valeria Lukyanova, the real name of the Human Barbie doll, looking dramatically different than she does in images.

"This girl is a fraud. She had been photoshopping her pictures from the beginning of her time on the internet," informed sources wrote on a website. "Her videos are not photoshopped. Does she still look the same? There are a lot more videos out there and as you can see from them, she looks nothing like she does when she photoshops her pictures," another one wrote.

Another website also accused her of being a former mail-order bride.
Lukyanova has denied that she has had plastic surgery or that she is using Photoshop to create her images.
In one of her latest videos, Lukyanova bows her head at awkward angles and slams her critics, but also looks much more like a normal woman than of the usual Human Barbie images.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Little children seen climbing large cliff in order to reach school

Little child climbs her way to school 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) We are all used to the school bus coming by every morning and evening which take our children to and from school, but in some cities in China, that is not the case, according to images uploaded to the internet.

Children in a southern Chinese city have to climb a cliff with a wooden ladder to get to school every day.

The children, who reside in the city of Zhangjiawan in Long Tianping County, have a cliff 180 feet high to climb every day, and although there is an alternative route, this particular path to school is three hours shorter.

The local government has responded to the images reported in the media saying they will look into the matter and propose a solution.

“Climbing such a huge cliff is a terrible way to get to school. By the time these little children reach school they are already too tired to study. This problem needs to be corrected as soon as possible,” Stephen Felix, 28, of Montreal, Canada told YourJewishNews.com after seeing the images.

The ladder, built by local residents, can last up to several years before having to be replaced.

Meanwhile, in Spain, mothers took drastic measures in order to provide bus service for their children.
After receiving notice that their children will no longer be picked up by the school bus, some mothers had no choice but to turn to stripping, according to video uploaded to the internet.

A new law was introduced during the summer months which cuts funding for the school bus that runs in the Monserrat district of Valencia in eastern Spain. A group of mothers met and posed for an erotic calendar to raise money for the transportation of their children.

The problem was that under the previous Spanish law, the government only had to provide transportation if students lived more than three miles away from school. However, according to the new law, the distance is now calculated in a straight line and this meant that Monserrat, was no longer eligible for a school bus.

However, as Silvia Lucas, one of the mothers, said: "We have to climb a mountain and down a ravine to get to school. On foot, using the most direct route it is 4.5 km, if you walk in the road it is 6 km."

Some of the parents are unemployed and have problems paying for gas to drive their children to school. For this reason and to try to raise $50,000, the group of mothers gathered, undressed and posed for an erotic calendar.

It took just over a month after the launch of the calendar to raise enough money for the bus to run for a period of three months for the 83 affected children.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

(Scroll down for video) A female New York police officer killed her boyfriend, her 1-year-old son, and then committed suicide, according to police reports in New York.

The crime took place on Monday morning at the woman's apartment on East 56th Street, in the Flatlands neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

Investigators said that the woman, a police officer identified by relatives and friends as Rosette M. Samuel, fatally shot her boyfriend and 1-year-old son, before committing suicide, police said.

However, the officer's 19-year-old son, escaped by jumping through a bedroom window after hearing gunfire, the chief spokesperson of the New York Police Department said.

The son, who had fallen asleep in a back room, called police around 8:30 am and met with the officers who responded to the front of the house, where the family rented an apartment on the first floor.

When police came into the home they found the man, woman and baby, dead from gunshot wounds.
"It was a difficult crime scene," the police spokesperson said.

The boyfriend was identified by relatives as 33-year-old Dason Peters, lived nearby and had planned to take his son, Dylan, to swim in an indoor pool near her home that day.
The boyfriend went swimming every Monday, according to relatives.

Police said that the police officer and the boyfriend were arguing before the shooting, according to a local television news station.

“This is a huge tragedy. I think that police officers should not be allowed to keep their weapons while off duty. Guns should only be used during regular police work. Sometimes, a small argument can spiral out of control with disastrous results,” Tony Crowe, 41, of Brooklyn, New York told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the murder suicide.

Officer Samuel, 43, who joined the police force in September 2000, was recently assigned to the 108th precinct in Queens.
Investigators said that the officer used her service weapon, a Glock 9 mm that she was authorized by the police department to carry when not at work, to commit the horrific crime.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
