(Scroll down for video) A cute scene where a goat was riding a horse was recently recorded on video on a Canadian farm, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The owner of the now famous horse riding goat appears on a recent video posted by the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism ministry said that goats can be found riding horses all the time.

Angie Power of Branch, Canada owns four pygmy goats who just love riding the Arabian horse.

"The goats just love to be near the horse, and when the horse lies down, the goats jump on top of it," Power said. "Goats being goats, you know, they are quite sure-footed little things, so when the horse rises, most of the time they just stay on it and go along for a walk around the farm," she added.

Power said that people who work for the tourism ministry in the province happened to drive by her farm on the way to Cape Santa Maria, a popular tourist destination in the Bay of Santa Maria.

"They thought it was remarkable, they had never seen anything like it," she said. "So they asked if they could come and spend the day, and they did, it was wonderful," Power also said.

“The goats riding the horse’s back is a wonderful sight. I never thought that a goat would enjoy a horseback ride. I guess we do learn something new every day,” Beth Cummings, 25, of Toronto, Canada told YourJewishNews.com after watching the video.

According to Power, if the horse gets tired of a goat riding its back, it gently shakes them off. Until it lies down again, then they get right back on the horse.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Fight breaks out in New York apartment building after women sunbathe in bikinis

Sunbathing in bikinis in full view of children at play 
By: Moses Gold

A fight broke out in a New York apartment building between a group of women sunbathing in bikinis and a group of parents.

Some parents complained about women in bikinis sunbathing inside an upscale New York City apartment project in full view of children at play.

Mothers who bring their children to the green zone of the Stuyvesant Town apartment complex in Manhattan said that some women wear skimpy clothing which make them feel uncomfortable because they are not suitable for children. The managers of the tenant association recently agreed with the parents group.

"This used to be a very simple community," Susan Steinberg, who is a tenant in the building, said. "Sunbathing has no place in our building, as our building is very high class. Sunbathing in general has no place in a mixed residential development," she added.

Last week, security guards forcibly removed sunbathers after the soccer league for children complained.
However, the two dozen women who were sunbathing said that this is totally unfair.

"I pay rent just as much as they do," Katie Friedman, 23, said. "The fact that I don’t have a child does not mean I should not be able to be here," she added.

“The women in bikinis should sue the tenants association. They have no right to tell women of they are allowed to sunbathe or not. Last time I checked sunbathing in New York wasn't illegal, and there is no contract forbidding sunbathing. Management stepped over the line,” Sue Barber, 22, of New York City told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the bikini brawl.

For years, tenants have been angered by the management looking for a younger demographic for their buildings, as a small one bedroom apartment goes for $3,555 a month.

‘Teen Mom’ star Farrah Abraham admits to waxing her 3-year-old daughter

Farrah Abraham with her daughter Sofia 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A young actress caused controversy after she proudly admitted to waxing her daughter who is only 3-years-old.

Aspiring model Farrah Abraham of Council Bluffs, Iowa, is the mother of Sophia Laurent Abraham.

The 'Teen Mom' star, who has spent more than $20,000 on plastic surgery on herself, is trying to give the good looks to her 3-year-old daughter, Sofia, by waxing her unibrow, which is the hair between the eyebrows. Abraham appeared in the first season of MTV's Teen Mom show, and had no shame to alter her appearance with surgery in an effort to be beautiful.

Abraham had several plastic surgery procedures done including breast augmentation, nose job and work on her chin. Abraham is giving her daughter an early start to make her look more attractive.

“I believe that the mother is insecure about her looks and she is transferring that insecurities to her daughter. I never heard of a mother telling her child at 3-years-old that she is not perfect just the way she is,” Amy Wilson, 28, of Des Moines, Iowa told YourJewishNews.com after hearing about the Abraham waxing her daughter.

Although most parents ignore a little hair on their three-year-old, Abraham decided she had to take matters into her own hands.
Abraham was unhappy when she realized that her young Sophie had developed a unibrow, so she decided to remove it through waxing.

Sadly, Sophia never knew her father. Derek Underwood was killed in a car accident on December 28, 2008, two months before her birth. After a paternity test established that he was indeed the father, Underwood’s family sued for visitation rights so they can be in the child’s life.

Jews ditch the traditional matchmaker and look for love with new apps

Israeli made app "blendr" 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) Just like technology is changing many traditional things in people’s lives, technology is changing Jewish traditions.

In Jewish tradition, matchmaking was a common practice, using an intermediary to bring two people together, in search for love. Now, in this technologically advanced day and age, smartphones and social networks were able to replace the traditional matchmaker in Israel and abroad, and are helping Jewish men and women find love or companionship.

Several new social media applications were recently developed by Israelis specifically for these purposes.
For example, "4Singles", is an application that quickly captured the local dating scene. It allows users to subscribe through their facebook accounts, and with the use of GPS, it allows them to see another registered person, but only who is in close proximity.

Users can share information through their Twitter accounts and Facebook accounts and send flirty messages to each other.
Similar sites and applications have also been developed to cater to the gay community as well. Founded by a U.S. Jew with Israeli background, "Grindr" is a popular application designed for homosexuals who want to find a long term lover or just a one night fling.

"Grindr", has more than four million users in over 100 countries, and in the name of a fast-track experience and anonymity, the application does not require signing up or creating an account.

Another matchmaking app called "Blendr" is a similar application for heterosexuals. This application has over 150 million users, and despite having no Hebrew feature, many Israelis are using the app.

Once a relationship is formed, couples can use an application meant only for couples. An application called "Weesh" was created by three Israelis living in New York. This application is designed exclusively for couples so that they can enjoy romantic exchanges, with no other friends involved.

A special timeline is used by the couple where they post pictures of their experiences, reminisce with status updates, and make plans for the future together.

“These apps definitely have sped up the process of dating. I remember the dreaded days of the matchmaker, besides taking forever to find a suitable match, most matchmakers were known for their lies, which made dating extremely difficult. I am glad that we live in the age of the app,” Roni Kolovski, 50, of Netanya, Israel told YourJewishNews.com after learning about all these new dating apps.

All these applications are free and can be easily downloaded to a mobile smartphone, and used in minutes. Because when it comes to matters of the heart, the Jewish tradition implies that there is no time to waste.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

McDonald's Israel raises prices of most items

McDonald's Israel location 
By: John Roberts

What a difference a county makes.

While McDonald's in the United States is cutting its prices due to the bad economy, McDonald’s in Israel is raising its prices due to the brisk economy, according to a statement released by McDonald’s.

McDonald’s Israel recently raised the prices on most items on its menu.
A customer, who monitors the prices of the fast food chain, found that the price of a regular meal rose by about 2 shekels.

"I did not realize at first that the prices have gone up, but when I had to pay I suddenly realized I have a higher than normal bill. When the cashier saw me check the price, he said that everything had gone up. I really do not like the fact that I used to pay 40 shekels for my meal and now I have to pay 50 shekels for a meal," one angry customer said.

The chain seems to have raised prices on most of the meals by one shekel from 41.90 to 42.90, an increase of 2.3 percent. The price for a children’s meal increased by .40, from 27.50 to 27.90, an increase of 1.4 percent.
French fries now cost 12.90 instead of 12.50, an increase of 3.2 percent. Prices on salads and ice creams increased by .30.

The positive side is that the prices of some items on the menu has been reduced. A Big America now cost 42.90 instead of 44.90, or a decrease of 4.4 percent.

“I definitely do not like the price increase, but since I love McDonald’s menu items and I could afford the higher prices I will continue buying there,” Leon Dan, 39, of Tel Aviv, Israel told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the McDonald’s price increase.

The last time that Israel McDonald’s raised prices of most items was in September 2012.

Nearly naked female student arrested after handing out condoms while dressed as pope

Katherine O'Connor 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) Pittsburg, Pennsylvania police have arrested a student who dressed up as the pope and distributed condoms.

After a public outcry against the student who paraded around nearly naked dressed as the pope, police investigated and decided to file charges against Katherine O'Connor, 19, an art student at Carnegie Mellon University. O'Connor was charged with indecent exposure.

O'Connor attended Saint Norbert’s School in Paoli Pennsylvania, where she performed in the choir. She held leading roles in the school plays, and received the Art Award upon graduation. She continued her education at Notre Dame de Namur Academy where she graduated with high honors and won the Art Award.

The church was angry after O'Connor dressed up as the pope from her waist up and began distributing free condoms at the school. The Carnegie Mellon student said it is freedom of expression, but the Diocese of Pittsburgh called it inappropriate and disrespectful.

In an annual school parade of art, one student dressed as the Pope, and was naked from the waist down as she passed out the free condoms. Moreover, witnesses said that the woman had shaved her pubic hair in the shape of a cross. The Diocese has asked the school to take action. "I think we all know that when we are growing up we do stupid things, but she crossed the line in this case," Bishop David Zubik said.

The school issued a statement, saying: "We continue with our review of the facts. If the student violated our rules or laws of the community, we will take appropriate measures." "It's all for fun and is not intended to hurt anyone," one student said.

“I happen to be a strong supporter of freedom of expression, but it can’t come at the expense of other people. I happen to agree with the church that this action was extremely disrespectful, and in very bad taste,” Racy Loyd, 19, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the student who gave out free condoms.

Bishop Zubik said the incident should not be repeated. "What we want to happen is for this person to learn an important lesson," Zubik said.

“The University encourages individual thinking and artistic expression, but the Diocese believes that this student not only crossed the line, but trampled on everyone else around her by disrespecting the church,” Zubik added.

Illinois man, 64, arrested after having sex with peacock

David Beckman 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) Police have arrested a 64-year-old man after an investigation revealed he had sex with a peacock.

David Beckman, of Chicago, Illinois has been arrested and charged with cruelty to an animal, after he allegedly raped his pet peacock.

The gruesome act was discovered by Roselle police while they were investigating Beckman on suspicion of soliciting a minor for sex. During the investigation they learned that Beckman had sex with his peacock. The bird, called Phyl, was found dead in the garage of Beckman. Police believe the peacock died from the trauma it endured during the incident.

“Is our society coming to accept the idea of humans having sex with animals? It seems like bestiality is becoming ever more popular. Until now, I only heard of people having sex with dogs and horses, this is the first I hear of man-on bird sex,” Jerry Nelson, 26, of Bloomingdale, Illinois told YourJewishNews.com after hearing about the charges against Beckman.

On Wednesday, Beckman was booked into DuPage County Jail and charged with assault and attempted indecent solicitation of a child. Police also found him in possession of marijuana drug paraphernalia, which were added to his charges. His bond was set at $10,000.

A while ago, a woman was arrested on charges of bestiality after she showed pictures to her boyfriend of herself having sex with a dog. Brittany Sonnier, 20, of Arizona, has been jailed after she allegedly confessed to having sex with her family dog.

An investigation began after Sonnier told her boyfriend that she enjoyed having sex with dogs. Sonnier showed her boyfriend pictures of herself engaged in inappropriate behavior with the dog. According to Lake Havasu City Police, Sonnier admitted to having sex with dogs since she was 13-years-old.

After hearing about her fetish with dogs the boyfriend was very disturbed by her behaviour. Then, after seeing the pictures of Sonnier having sex with dogs, the boyfriend tried to talk to Sonnier's father about what his girlfriend shared with him.

The father allegedly told him that his daughter had admitted to having sex with dogs in the past and that he focused on trying to get custody of his grandson, who is the son of his daughter.

The boyfriend then went to police to report the crime being committed against the dog. Sonnier was arrested and charged with bestiality. The charges were later changed to two counts of crimes against nature.

Employees place man, 90, with broken arm and hip in car to drive home alone

Jay Ambrozia 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) Grocery store workers are being criticized after they caused a man to be stuck in his car for 4 days.

A 90-year-old man from Florida is lucky to be alive after he spent four days trapped in his car in his garage.

Jay Ambrozia, went to get some stuff from a grocery store in his neighborhood. While shopping at the store, Ambrozia tripped and fell to the ground. Instead of calling an ambulance, store employees helped him get up and walked him to his car. They then helped him get into the car and Ambrozia drove home.

Unknown to him, when he fell, Ambrozia broke his arm and his hip. Ambrozia somehow managed to drive himself the short distance back home and even into his garage. After he parked his car he realized that he cannot get out. Ambrozia said he blew his horn and shouted, but no one heard his cries for help.

After being stuck in his car for four days, his neighbors who came to check on him, found him slumped in the front seat.

“The store workers were very wrong, they should have called an ambulance right away. One should never take chances with elderly people because their bones are weak and break easily. The workers could have caused more damage to Ambrozia’s hips by walking him to his car,” Shirley Taylor, 47, of Boca Raton, Florida told YourJewishNews.com after hearing about the unfortunate incident.

The neighbors called police. When an ambulance arrived and put him on the stretcher he was in a lot of pain, according to his neighbors.

Male fugitive mobster caught while working as female prostitute despite having sex change

Juan Rebolledo his after sex change 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) A mobster escaped from prison and had plastic surgery done which turned him into a hot looking girl.

The convict received a 60 year jail sentence, but managed to escape. He had surgery which included a boob job and a nose job to look like girl.

The wanted mobster, Juan Rebolledo, was recognized by police and arrested, despite his good looks. Rebolledo, was a member of the "Los Topos" gang in Colombia. He escaped prison after being jailed last year. Rebolledo was sentenced to 60 years in prison for a long list of crimes including robbery, extortion, kidnapping and torture.

After escaping prison, he had allegedly been living as a prostitute named Rosalinda in the northern coastal city of Barranquilla. Besides assuming a new identity, Rebolledo also changed his physical appearance with plastic surgery and breast surgery. In the end, all his efforts failed to fool police. Rebolledo was identified and arrested during a routine stop in a neighborhood known for prostitution.

“Hopefully the mob won't take revenge of the plastic surgeon. After all procedures he went through to look like a girl, police officers were still able to recognize him,” Roberto Martinez, 29, of Houston, Texas told YourJewishNews.com after seeing a photo of Rebolledo as a woman.

Rebolledo’s gang is known in Colombia's capital of Bogota for using women to seduce rich men, then kidnap and torture them for their money. Police said gang members often torture their victims with electric shocks and force them to reveal their PIN numbers from their ATM cards and steal other valuables.

3 men jailed after abusing visitors at the World Jewish Congress

The World Jewish Congress in Hungary 
By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) 3 men were arrested, charged and convicted of racial abuse related charges after abusing visitors to the World Jewish Congress in Hungary, according to court proceedings in Hungary.

Now, a Budapest court has handed down prison terms of two to three years to three men who insulted visitors at the World Jewish Congress which was held last weekend in the city.

The agency said that visitors were victims of an anti-Semitic attack while in the Hungarian capital for the World Jewish Congress. The three men were convicted in a special fast track trial.

"The main suspect who instigated the attack was sentenced to three years in prison, while two others were sentenced to terms of two years, both suspended for three years," the court said in a statement.

The incident occurred near the Great Synagogue in the city, the police said in a statement. The three assailants shouted anti-Semitic and Nazi slogans. They also made Nazi salutes before plainclothes police officers intervened.
The main culprit, who was on probation for a previous drug offense, is appealing his conviction.

“I am very happy to see that the court is taking charges of anti-Semitism seriously. I think that the sentences are a bit on the light side. I hope the swift action by the court will deter others from committing anti-Semitic crimes,” Leo Shaw, 30, of Portland, Oregon told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the court sentence.

The World Jewish Congress decided to hold its conference in Budapest in a show of solidarity with the Jewish community, which is said to have suffered increased anti-Semitism in recent years.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Woman checks her dog into pet hotel while vacationing but left her young kids home alone

Kristine Noffsinger 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A mother checked her beloved dog into at a dog hotel but left her young daughters to care for themselves.

The mother was arrested and her children taken away after she left them home alone for three days.

Kristine Noffsinger, 29, of Austin, Texas seemed to be a responsible dog owner when she checked her beloved pooch Teddy, into a PetSmart hotel rather than leaving it home alone.

Noffsinger took a three day vacation to St. Louis, Missouri and wanted someone to take care of her dog, but surprisingly, she left her 8-year-old and 10-year-old daughters home alone to care for themselves. The girls had to get themselves to and from school, as well as cook breakfast, lunch and dinner by themselves for three days.

Child Protective Services was tipped off to the situation and Williamson County deputies went to the home and removed the children.

“It seems like the mother cared more about her dog than her young children. On the other hand there are no hotels where one can drop off children to be cared for as there are for dogs,” Lisa Baker, 25, of Lockhart, Texas told YourJewishNews.com upon learning the reason behind Noffsinger’s arrest.

Although it is not illegal to leave children home alone, Julie Moody, a CPS spokesperson said “common sense is important” when leaving children home alone. “There is a difference between running to the store to pick up a few things and be back home in 30 minutes and leaving children home alone to care for themselves for three days,” Moody said.

This incident is seen by police as neglectful supervision, the mother allegedly placed her children in a situation in which they were not mature enough to handle.

Noffsinger is facing charges of abandoning or endangering the youngsters. The girls were taken into protective custody and have since been placed with one of their fathers.

Noffsinger was arrested when she returned home. She is being held at the Williamson County jail on $40,000 bail.

Netanyahu gives up bed on plane after learning about the $127,000 cost

Netanyahu and wife on a trip abroad 
By: Shifra Unger

The Israeli Prime Minister decided that he does not need a bed on his plane after learning about the great cost to install it, according to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s office.

Benjamin Netanyahu will try alternative sleeping arrangements while traveling after receiving a high bill for installing a custom bed on a recent flight to London, officials close to the Israeli leader said.

Netanyahu faced a public outcry Sunday after reports over the weekend revealed that $127,000 in public funds were used to install a special cabin for sleeping during the five-hour flight to attend the funeral last month of Margaret Thatcher.

Netanyahu's office initially defended the decision and said the Prime Minister had a busy schedule ahead of the flight and needed to be fresh for important meetings in Britain.

However, after public criticism, officials close to Netanyahu said on Saturday that he was unaware of the cost, and once informed, he ordered the bed installations on all flights canceled.

On Saturday night, thousands of people took to the streets of Tel Aviv and other cities to protest planned budget cuts. Netanyahu will meet on Sunday with senior officials to discuss possible cuts in the defense budget.
Micky Rosenthal's opposition Labor Party called for an investigation for outrageous conduct of the prime minister.

"We thought that nothing could surprise us anymore when it comes to personal conduct of Netanyahu. Well, we thought wrong," a political commentator said.

"It's amazing that not a single person in the inner circle of the prime minister saw this as wrong. Not one person showed a little common sense. Nobody was anticipating that people would be angry when they heard about this," the analyst said about the bed.

“I personally think that the Prime Minister should install the bed on all of his flights despite the steep cost. Netanyahu works many hours a day for the entire nation of Israel and deserves some peaceful sleep while flying, when not a lot can be achieved. I don’t know why everyone is up in arms about this,” Racheli Bam, 27, of Tel Aviv, Israel told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the bed scandal.

Earlier this year, Netanyahu stopped buying his favorite ice cream after the public criticized the $2,700 a year cost.

New Amy Winehouse exhibition opens displaying her Jewish roots

Amy Winehouse 
By: Shifra Unger

A new Amy Winehouse exhibition opened which celebrates her Jewish roots.

The family of Amy Winehouse is hopeful that the new exhibition will see Amy reclaim her name as a typical Jewish girl from North London.

Amy’s older brother, Alex Winehouse and his wife, Riva, collaborated with the Jewish Museum in Camden and gave unprecedented access to the belongings of Amy, including her guitar, her collection of books, and a vintage bar of her former home.

The exhibit, presented on what would have been her 30th birthday, will also include family photographs, including the ceremony of her brother's bar mitzvah, Friday night dinner, and her grandmother Cynthia, who was a big influence on Amy. Amy even got a tattoo on her arm dedicated to her grandmother.

Alex Winehouse said: "Amy was a person who was very proud of her London Jewish roots. We were not religious, but we were traditional. Hopefully, the world will get to see the Jewish side of Amy."

“We all know that Amy Winehouse was a great singer. What people did not know is that Amy was dedicated to the Jewish community, and this is what the exhibit is all about,” Geneva Wilkerson, 21, of London, England told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the new exhibit.

Abigail Morris, executive director of the museum, said: "Amy Winehouse was an immensely talented, iconic and inspirational singer, and she was a Jewish girl from North London."

Z STREET sues the IRS after being targeted because it is connected to Israel

Z STREET logo 
By: David Ross

A pro Israel organization is suing the IRS after it claims it was targeted by the IRS for being connected to Israel, according to a new lawsuit filed in a Pennsylvania court.

“Z STREET was informed explicitly by an IRS Agent on July 19, 2010, that approval of Z STREET’s application for tax-exempt status has been at least delayed, and may be denied, because of a special IRS policy in place regarding organizations in any way connected with Israel, and further that the applications of many such Israel-related organizations have been assigned to a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization's activities contradict the Administration's public policies.

"These statements by an IRS official that the IRS maintains special policies governing applications for tax-exempt status by organizations which deal with Israel, and which requires particularly intense scrutiny of such applications and an enhanced risk of denial if made by organizations which espouse or support positions inconsistent with the Obama administration’s Israel policies, constitute an explicit admission of the crudest form of viewpoint discrimination, and one which is both totally un-American and flatly unconstitutional under the First Amendment,” Z STREET stated in the lawsuit.

“This is the most outrageous IRS policy ever. This is extremely discriminatory and anti-Semitic. The IRS should be severely sanctioned by the court for having such a policy,” Cora Summers, 54, of Olympia, Washington told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the Z STREET lawsuit.

“On July 19, 2010, Z STREET’s corporate counsel called again, and this time spoke with IRS Agent Gentry who advised Z STREET’s counsel that she had two concerns regarding the Application. One is the advocacy activities in general, and secondly the IRS's special concern about applications from organizations whose activities are related to Israel, and that are organizations whose positions contradict the US Administration's Israeli policy,” Z STREET also said in its lawsuit.

Cafe in Vienna installs see through public toilet doors

See through cafe toilets 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) There is one cafe that stripped away all privacy and put it all on public display, even the toilets, according to video uploaded to the internet.

At first glance, you might think that Cafe Diglas in Vienna, Austria, was just another, refined, regular coffee house in old Viennese style, but a visit to the bathrooms proves otherwise.

Because as you can see in the viral video below, the glass door in each cubicle is completely see through, and only becomes opaque when you turn the lock. Is it magic? Is it science? Whatever it is, it is very cool.

“After watching the video I would never use such a toilet, as I would be too paranoid. Also, I don't know if I would eat at such a cafe because what if one sick man decides not to turn the switch and everyone can see how he is doing his business? I feel like vomiting,” Erika Luna, 50, of Spokane, Washington told YourJewishNews.com after watching the video.

What if you are pretty noisy in the toilet and you are embarrassed?
No problem there is an app for that.
As we reported earlier, for those people who want to cover up weird noises when they use the toilet there is an app for that.

A new application was released that is designed to help save any embarrassment for those who make noises while on the toilet.
The fake shower app plays a recording of a running shower, covering up the possible unpleasant sounds to someone lurking outside the bathroom.

The app serves as a substitute for the actual operation of a faucet or shower, which allows users to save water. It also shows the amount of water that has been saved as a result of playing the recording.

“This is a wonderful idea for those people who are uncomfortable using the toilet while other people are around. Now, they won’t need to hold themselves back when they feel the need to use the bathroom, which will avoid unpleasant situations,” Virginia Lane, 65, of Las Cruces, New Mexico told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the app.

"Many people turn on the faucet or shower in order to prevent others from hearing the sounds of nature in the bathroom," the product description on iTunes reads. "Clean, treated, expensive and scarce water is lost everywhere. With the fake shower app, the privacy of the couple is saved, and so is the water," the product description continues.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

California boy, 12, arrested after stabbing to death sister, 6

Leila Fowler 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A little boy was arrested and charged with murder related charges after stabbing to death his 12-year-old sister, according to a statement released by California police.

Police arrested the 12-year-old brother of an 8-year-old who was mysteriously stabbed to death in her home in a rural community in northern California last month.

The boy, who was not identified, is charged with murder, Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz said.
The killing of Leila Fowler shook the tight knit Springs Valley community of about 7,400 people and sparked a massive manhunt.

The boy had told police he found the body of his sister and found an intruder in the house while their parents were at a Little League game. He described the man as being tall with long gray hair.
Police said there were no signs of a robbery or assault in the house.

The detectives did a door-to-door sweep of houses, sheds and horse stables, but found nothing. Divers also searched two reservoirs nearby for clues.

As part of the investigation, authorities seized several knives from the house the girl shared with her father, stepmother and siblings to determine if it could have caused the fatal injuries.

Leila's brother was arrested at 5:10 pm Saturday and police quickly called a press conference to announce the arrest.
Several days after the massacre, hundreds of people gathered at Jenny Lind Elementary School, where Leila was a popular 3rd grader. Her mother, Krystal Walters, tearfully thanked the public for their support.

“This is definitely a terrible murder. Such a killing can devastate entire families. There must have been some clues that went unnoticed. Such killings do not usually happen from one minute to the next. I hope the family can recover from their great loss,” Erika Collier, 47, of Tacoma, Washington told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the Leila Fowler murder.

"I just want to thank the community and all our family and friends for the great amount of support given to our family," the mother of the murdered girl, Krystal Walters, said at the time. "It will never be forgotten. Thank you," she added.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Man sells soap made from his own body fat

Orestes De La Paz selling soap from his own body fat 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A man decided to sell his own body in order to raise some cash. No! It is not what you think.
For $1,000.00, the artist, Orestes De La Paz from Florida, will sell you a bar of soap made from his own body fat.

The project, which is currently on display at the Frost Museum in Miami, happened after De La Paz had a cosmetic procedure late last year, and decided to do something with his fat rather than throwing it away.

The De La Paz exhibition also features images of the artist undergoing liposuction, boiling fat into soap, and washing himself with his own soap.

“Until I saw it for myself I couldn't believe that people will actually pay so much money to buy soap made from real human fat. It is just unreal what people buy these days. For so much money, I might start selling my own fat as well,” Sherri Hogan, 44, of Seattle, Washington told YourJewishNews.com after watching the exhibition.

The artist also Challenged Lady Gaga to wash herself with his soap.

(Scroll down for video) The Chinese are known to be great chopsticks users, at least when it comes to eating their food.

However, one Chinese man was caught on video stealing from a woman using chopsticks.
A pickpocketer in China has robbed an unsuspecting cyclist, with what looked like chopsticks.

Wang Hongbo was recorded in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, China running behind a woman riding a bike and successfully slip a mobile phone from her pocket.
Then the images were posted online, becoming a successful viral hit on the Internet.

It didn't stop there though, as Wang was later seen on video selling the phone at a thrift store nearby, but later surrendered to police after seeing his images online.

“This is the beauty of technology, as more criminals are caught these days after they are recorded doing the crime, and then the video gets uploaded to the internet for the whole world to see. Eventually, criminals will learn that it is just too risky to commit crimes openly on the street because they can be recorded,” Daisy Underwood, 41, of Sacramento, California told YourJewishNews.com after seeing the images on the internet.

This is not the first time thieves in China used chopsticks to pickpocket. In the video below you can see a man using chopsticks to steal from an unsuspecting man.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Drug dealer escapes prison after hiding in recycling bin

(Scroll down for video) A man came up with a clever plan to escape from prison without getting all stinky.
A convicted drug dealer has escaped from prison in Germany by hiding in a recycling bin.

The Turkish man, 37, was serving a seven-year jail sentence.

Police have launched a nationwide search for the fugitive, and an international search warrant is being prepared in case the man is not found soon.

Viersen police spokesperson Wolfgang Wiese said: "Shortly after the truck he was traveling in went beyond the prison walls, he cut open the box and then cut open the canvas of the truck to escape. I've never seen anything like this."

“Lately, we hear too many stories of dangerous criminals escaping from prison. Prisons need to take additional precautions in order to prevent such incidents from repeating itself,” Shelly Bryan, 38, of San Diego, California told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the prison escape. This is not the first time a prisoner escaped from prison using a clever scheme.

As we reported earlier, out of all the tools prisoners use to escape from prison, one man, used a seemingly easy tool which is available to every prisoner, to break free, according to a statement released by prison officials in Russia.

The man, used only a spoon, to break free from one of the most infamous prisons in Russia.
33-year-old Oleg Topalov escaped from the Matrosskaya Tishina prison, apparently by the use of a single spoon to dig a hole in the ceiling of his cell.

He was only the fourth person in 20 years to successfully escape from the Matrosskaya Tishina prison. Russian investigators have blamed Topalov’s escape on prison staff, who said they engaged in a "dishonest or careless attitude to their work which Topalov exploited."

Topalov, who was convicted of two murders and arms trafficking, used the spoon to create a hole in the ceiling of the cell, opened a hole in the vent, climbed to the roof of the prison, and escaped over the fence perimeter of the building.

"Since the building is old and run down, Topalov had no difficulty in extending the vent shaft, through which he reached the roof of the prison," Russian Federal Penitentiary Service representative Kristina Belousova said. "Using sheets tied one to another, Tapalov managed to go over the wall and jump over the fence, running away," the spokesperson added.

One witness said that Topalov did not use sheets, but rope he purchased from the prison psychiatric ward.
Prison officials described Topalov as "mentally unstable and susceptible to escape," and offered an award for his capture.

“This is definitely one daring prison escape. I don’t believe that Topalov is mentally disabled as Russian officials claim, as a don’t think a mentally disabled man can escape from a maximum security prison with just a spoon. He must be pretty smart. Topalov's daring prison escape can now be turned into a movie,” Peggy Ramirez, 51, of Tucson, Arizona told YourJewishNews.com after learning about Topalov’s prison escape.

Interestingly, under Russian law, Topalov only faces up to four years in jail if caught.
Reports said Topalov shared a cell with about seven other prisoners, although it is unclear what role, if any, they played in his daring escape.
