(Scroll down for video) A bridge across a Washington river collapsed sending cars and people into the water, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The Interstate 5 bridge over the Skagit River at Mount Vernon collapsed Thursday night, dumping vehicles and people in the water shortly after 7:00 pm.

At least one person was pulled from the water, but State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis said it was unclear how many were in the water or the extent of injuries. Photos showed a man sitting on top of his red car waiting to be rescued.

"We heard the terrible noise and I thought, 'What the hell was that?'" Rita Miller, who works at Riverbend RV Park said. She said that "there were only two people alive."

Miller described what she said looked like a mobile home above water.
Miller said a marine rescue team was on site with a helicopter with dozens of lifeguards.
A crowd of about 1,000 people gathered near the bridge.

It was unclear what caused the collapse. Rescue boats from the sheriff's office has arrived and rescuers were looking for people in the water. Crowds of people lined the river to watch the scene unfold, and drivers were told to stay away.

“This is a frightening seen. I was always scared from travelling on bridges precisely for this reason, now, I will definitely stay away from bridges. Hopefully, all the victims will recover quickly,” Nicole Mcgee, 23, from Seattle, Washington told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the bridge collapse.

The four lane north and south bridge, built in 1955, was used by 70,000 vehicles a day, according to 2010 statistics.
Staff of National Transportation Safety Board were on site Thursday night. The National Weather Service said there was nothing unusual with current river levels.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

(Scroll down for video) A mother was stunned when she received a warning letter addressed to her toddler.

Housing officials of Walsall, England have sent a warning letter to the 2-year-old boy, asking him to stop making noise which is disturbing the peace of the neighbors.

His 22-year-old mother, Jodie Holden, was shocked when she opened the letter of complaint addressed to her son, Chenlair Bent, accusing him of anti-social behavior. Miss Holden, who is a full-time mother, lives in a two family house. She said that the only time that her son makes noise is when he is laughing while watching his favorite television program, Thomas the Tank Engine.

The toddler, who is unable to read, received the letter stating: “Walsall Housing Group has received a complaint relating to noise nuisance and your property has been identified as the source of the noise. In this instance, we will not take any further action other than request that you and your family are mindful of others living nearby who wish to enjoy peace and quiet in their own home."

"He's just a typical 2-year-old child, and he does not run around causing chaos. The only time he makes noise is when he is laughing in the backyard while watching Thomas the Tank Engine on television,” Holden said.

“After I read the letter, I was sure they lived in an apartment building where kids sometimes run around in the hallway, but I see they live in a private two family house. Come on now, how can a neighbor complain about kids making a bit of noise? That’s what kids are supposed to do in their yard,” Gloria Cole, 52, of West Midlands, England told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the warning letter sent to the toddler.

A spokesperson for the Walsall Housing Group said: "We have apologized for the error and we want to the say sorry again for any upset we caused.”

By: John Roberts

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish meat and poultry processing plant donated thousands of pounds of meat to the Oklahoma Relief Fund after deadly tornadoes wreaked havoc on the state, according to a report on FailedMessiah.com.

Agri Star, the company that took over Rubashkin’s Agriprocessors, donated 20,000 pounds of meat products to the Oklahoma tornado relief fund.

The donated meat and poultry products, which are estimated to be worth more than $50,000, were shipped from Postville, Iowa yesterday afternoon, Agri Star spokesperson Jo-Ann Chadbourne said.

Masiba Soup Kitchen of Brooklyn, New York, was trying to raise funds for the shipping costs of approximately $3,000 which it has received from the National Council of Young Israel, Chadbourne said.

The food, many of which are already cooked products such as chicken nuggets or deli, will be delivered to Chabad of Oklahoma City, which has turned itself into a shelter for victims and a resting place for rescue and recovery workers.

“Agri Star has done a wonderful act of kindness for those suffering from the deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma. I am sure that the victims will forever be grateful to the Jewish company for helping them in their time of need,” Brenda Bishop, 41, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the donation.

Agri Star has also donated a large amount of meat in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Chadbourne said.

Farrakhan: Obama surrounded himself with Satan, members of the Jewish community

By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) Louis Farrakhan, a known anti Jewish and Muslim leader, slammed President Obama for surrounding himself with Satan, during a recent speech he gave in Detroit, Michigan.

The leading Jewish civil rights group in the U.S., the Anti Defamation League, criticized the anti Jewish remarks made at a church in Detroit by Minister Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam. The Anti Defamation League also called on the leaders of Detroit to condemn Farrakhan after they invited him to Detroit.

While in the Fellowship Chapel in Detroit, Farrakhan criticized what he called "Satanic Jews" and the "synagogue of Satan" which he said controlled major institutions in the U.S. He also said that President Barack Obama "was surrounded by Satan, members of the Jewish community.”

“His speech was extremely inflammatory as is quite expected of Farrakhan, but was surprising is that U.S. political leaders listened to his crazy hate speech. The political leaders who were in attendance should immediately apologize to the Jewish community,” Nathan Huffman, 40, of Chicago, Illinois told YourJewishNews.com after asked to comment on Farrakhan’s speech.

Attending the Farrakhan speech was the pastor Wendell Anthony, who heads the Detroit NAACP branch, USA Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, and other religious and political leaders.
During his trip to Detroit, Farrakhan also spoke before the City Council and the New Destiny Christian Fellowship Church.

"It is deeply disappointing that so many leaders in Detroit are apparently so willing to turn a blind eye to the anti Jewish rhetoric of Farrakhan," Heidi Budaj, regional director of the Michigan branch of the Anti Defamation League said. "Where are the voices of our community who are willing to stand up and say no to racism?" She added.

First Israeli exhibit on display for world tourists in Louvre

The Lod mosaic

YourJewishNews.com

For the first time in history, thousands of tourists from all over the world are able to view an Israeli archaeological exhibit on display at the most visited museum in the world. Private collections owned by Israelis have been on display in the Louvre in the past, but this is the first official Israeli exhibit.

The exhibit features the 1,700 year-old Lod Mosaic. In a remarkable state of preservation, this 180 sq. Meter Roman mosaic was discovered in Lod in 1996, during the construction of a highway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

It was part of a large pavement covering the floor of what was probably a reception room in a privately owned villa. Made up of marble and limestone tesserae and cubes of glass paste, it offers a richly detailed portrait of the animal world in all its diversity. Human activities are referred to by the presence of two boats sailing among the marine life in the mosaic's lower part.

Presented side by side with the 'Antioch Four Seasons Mosaic' and not far from the new exhibition areas devoted to the East Mediterranean in the Roman Empire, the Lod Mosaic is being specially put on show in Paris before its return to the Lod Mosaic Archaeological Center, currently being built on the site of the discovery.

The Louvre is the sixth museum to display the Lod Mosaic, following five successful showcases in the US, including a display at the Metropolitan in New York, where an estimated 700,000 visited the exhibit.

Shukah Dorfman, Head of Israel's Antiquities Authority, said: "This is a great honor and achievement for the Antiquities Authority, and a great opportunity for the museum goers, to see this masterpiece form Lod and to learn about the history and archeology of Israel."

Man faces charges after stitching up dog’s wounds, mouth, with twine and duct tape

Dog's wound sewn up with twine and covered
with gauze and duct tape 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A Texas man is accused of animal abuse after he stitched up his dog’s wounds by himself.

The San Antonio man, did not seek medical care for his dog when it received a gash, but rather did the procedure himself to save on vet bills.

After sewing up the dog’s wounds with thick twine, the man reportedly taped the dog’s mouth shut with duct tape because the dog would not stop whining. The 2-year-old Dachshund, needed emergency surgery after its owner took on the role of the veterinarian, authorities said.

Animal Care Service was alerted to the situation by a concerned citizen who saw the dog's mouth taped shut. Animal cruelty specialist, Manuel Flores, went to the house to save the dog. When the dog’s owner came home he explained that he had performed the procedure on the dog after it came home with a big cut on its side.

When Animal Care workers unwrapped the duct tape and gauze they found the dogs wound sewn with thick thread. The cut has been sewn loosely in a cross-stitch pattern with twine. The pet's mouth was also taped shut.

“I cannot believe that a dog’s owner would put his dog through this so he can save money on veterinary bills. If he was unable to care for the dog he should have took it to a shelter where they would have gladly taken care of the animal and attended to its wounds,” animal rights activist Jennifer Baker, 46, of Houston, Texas told YourJewishNews.com after she was asked to comment on the incident.

Flores said the dog was rescued just in time. "The wound would have gotten infected and the manner in which the dog was taped the dog could have died due to the heat because the dog wasn't able to open its mouth," Flores explained. The dog, who has been named Frank by staff at the shelter, will be placed for adoption or sent to a rescue group when it recovers.

The dog’s owner could face many charges as state law prohibits the act of causing undue pain or suffering to a pet. The state also prohibits the practice or attempted practice of veterinary medicine without a license both of which the dog’s owner did.

Israeli Zoo Animals Find New Home in Turkey

Tazpit News Agency For
YourJewishNews.com

In early May, Turkish Airlines hosted an unusual group of passengers flying from Israel to Istanbul. A special group of wildlife animals from Israel’s Ramat Gan Safari and the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo were flown to Turkey on May 7.

Turkish zookeepers located at the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Natural Life Park asked the Ramat Gan Safari to assist them in expanding their African section of animals. A total of 45 animals of seven different species were flown including three meerkats, six nyalas, three monkeys, six fruit bats, three zebras and several antelopes.

In addition, according to the Turkish Hurriyet Daily News, 20 sacred ibis, a species of long-legged birds, were brought from the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo (Tisch Family Zoological Garden). It was the the first time that the Izmir Natural Life Park had become home to some of these species, including the sacred ibis and fruit bats, sent from Israel.

The Turkish daily reported that the new guests were first brought to Istanbul by plane and following customs transactions, were then transported by a special truck to Izmir. Israeli zookeepers, veterinarians, and biologists accompanied the animals to Izmir to prevent any stress or complications that might have occurred among the animals during the trip.

The exchange was facilitated thanks to a special exchange program conducted by the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA) to which both the Izmir Natural Life Park and Israeli zoos belong. The EAZA conducts exchange programs among European zoos and promotes cooperation for furthering wildlife conservation.

It was not the first time that animals have been sent to Turkey from Israeli zoos. In 2008, the Ramat Gan Safari sent an Asian elephant named Winner, which was born in captivity, to the Izmir Wildlife Park. Winner, together with his Pakistani-born ‘wife’ made history in Turkey with the birth of the country’s first elephant aptly named Izmir in 2011.

Despite the strained political relationship between Turkey and Israel, all is well in animal world. According to Dr. Gilad Goldstein, a curator at the Ramat Gan Safari, there has always been a good relationship between the Ramat Gan Safari and the Izmir zoo.

“We are zoo keepers and we have an international language amongst us,” Dr. Goldstein told the Times of Israel. “We’ve always had a good relationship with them [in Izmir].”

Girl, 10, forced to wear ugly outfits to school after being caught bullying girl over clothes

Kaylee forced to wear these ugly clothing 
By: Sarah Weiss

A 10-year-old girl was forced to go to school with hand-me-down clothing as a punishment.

A woman wanted to teach her daughter a lesson in bullying so she made her stepdaughter go to school with less than perfect dresses.

The stepmother, Ally, of Murray, Utah, whose last name was not revealed to protect the identity of her girl, made the girl named Kaylee, wear thrift store dresses and shoes to teach her a lesson for bullying other students over the clothing the girls were wearing.

The girl’s teacher told her stepmother that Kaylee, was teasing another girl over her clothes. At that point, the bullying got so bad that the other girl refused to go to school.

At first, Ally tried to discuss the issue with Kaylee, but when the girl did not take her seriously, the stepmother felt she had to teach her a lesson and give her a punishment that fits the crime. The woman purchased some second hand clothing and shoes from a thrift store and forced the girl to wear them to school.

Kaylee was reportedly upset and cried when she was told she would have to go to school with these clothing, but Ally insisted she wear them for two days.

“I applaud the stepmother. I think she did the right thing. Some kids are fortunate enough that their parents can afford brand new clothing while other parents cannot afford it. Although I must say that I have shopped at thrift stores before, and many of them have good quality and nice looking clothing,” Monica Hawkins, 32, of Madison, Wisconsin, told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the stepmother’s form of disipline.

Kaylee learned what it feels like to be judged by others when she found out that other girls were talking about her behind her back.Although some claim that the punishment is a bit drastic, Kaylee admits that she learned her lesson.

Woman buys $360 million lottery ticket just minutes too late

Lottery tickets 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A woman was ecstatic when she realized she was holding a winning Powerball jackpot ticket.

The woman realized that the ticket she bought the night before, matched all the winning numbers of the $360 million lottery jackpot.

Margit Arrobio purchased 5 tickets at a local Shell gas station in Pasadena, California, on Wednesday evening. The next morning, she found that the Powerball drawing matched all six numbers on one of her tickets. She was puzzled to hear her local television news anchor announcing that no one had bought the winning ticket.

"I called my gas station where I bought the ticket and I said: 'I don't get it. I have every number and yet they say there's no winner,’”Arrobio said. The gas station attendant asked the woman what time she bought the ticket, when she replied that she was at the gas station at 8:00 pm the attendant informed her that she was 60 minutes late as the cut off time for the night is at 7:00 pm.

Arrobio bought her ticket 60 minutes after Wednesday's drawing had already been closed, which meant her numbers were to play for the next drawing. She was devastated when she learned that she was just 60 minutes late from reaching her dreams of becoming an instant millionaire.

“For most people, especially those who are addicted to playing the lottery, dream of one day striking it rich. For me, I buy lottery tickets every now and then, but I don’t get my hopes up,” Jose Hernandez, 42, of Huston, Texas, told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the lottery incident.Mobile video not loading?

Club installs two-way mirrors in women's bathroom to charge men to peek

Public bathroom mirrors 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A club found a new way of adding revenue by allowing men to peek into the women’s bathroom.

The Shimmy Club in Scotland has caused controversy after their bathroom antics were exposed.

The club installed two-way mirrors similar to those used by police when interviewing suspects, people on one side see a mirror while the other side is glass allowing people to look inside without being seen. The mirror in the Shimmy Club was placed between the bathroom sink and a room which is rented out for private parties or for people who want to see women in the bathroom area. The cost for the “privilege to spy” on the women is a whopping $1,200.

“Many close the door while in the bathroom, there are no urinals around, women apply their makeup or do their hair at the bathroom mirror. Who would shell out $1,200 to watch that? If a man wants to spy on his girlfriend while she is in the bathroom, a private investigator would be cheaper. This is a perverted idea,” Sophia Walker, 24, of London, England told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the incident.

A spokesperson for Glasgow Licensing Board, said: "We have received complaints about this issue from local officials, and we are currently investigating." The club apologized after the scandal broke, but many are not happy with the apology. The club did not talk about removing the mirror, instead they hope the publicity will bring more people.

On its facebook page, Shimmy Club wrote: "The Shimmy Club’s two-way mirror is a design feature created as a bit of fun, an interactive feature which we hoped would act as a talking point for people visiting The Shimmy.”

Scotland Police also confirmed they were investigating.

(Scroll down for video) A woman will spend six months in jail after she was caught on video cheating with her boyfriend’s young son.

The 28-year-old woman from Australia, has been jailed after she was accidentally caught on camera having sex with her ​​boyfriend's 16-years-old son.

The woman, pleaded guilty to five counts of sex with a minor. Judge David Porter, sentenced her to 12 months in prison, six of them suspended on condition of good behavior.

As we reported earlier, a man was horrified when his hidden camera recorded his girlfriend cheating with his own teenage son. The man, set up a hidden video camera to record paranormal activity in the kitchen, but when he reviewed the video for signs of a ghost, he found his girlfriend making out with his son.

Instead of capturing ghosts on camera, the father, of Tasmania, Australia, was horrified to find images of his lover and his son, who is 16-years-old, kissing and hugging. The 28-year-old woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court on Monday to five counts of sex with a minor.

She said she was "embarrassed" by her actions and said she thought that the age of consent was 16-years-old, but she was wrong as the age of consent in Tasmania is 17-years-old. The court heard that when the man confronted his partner of 11 years with whom he has a child together with the video, she tried to downplay the incident as an innocent hug.

His son however, confessed to sleeping with her three times in the past. It later emerged that the affair began when the woman entered the room of her stepson to discuss his driving lessons. The conversation then turned to touching and kissing, which led more, Prosecutor Jackie Hartnett told the court.

She also told the court how the woman had taken the boy upstate, where they had slept together several times in a hotel room. After discovering the images on his camcorder, the man called police and his girlfriend was arrested.

“I do not understand how the woman tried to justify sleeping with the teenager. She was living in the house and acted like a stepmom to him. That’s just wrong!” Nancy Wells, 35, of Melbourne, Australia told YourJewishNews.com after the woman pleaded guilty to sleeping with her boyfriend’s son.

In a police recorded interview she confessed to sleeping with the minor and admitted knowing he was only 16-years-old. Now she will spend time in prison.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Pizza 4 Patriots sets world record after sending 30,000 pizzas to U.S. troops in Afghanistan

DHL sending pizzas to U.S. service members 
By: Eva Fett

A pizza delivery service has set a world record for delivering the most pizzas ever after sending 30,000 pizzas to U.S. service members in Afghanistan, according to a statement from the Guinness World Records.

Pizza 4 Patriots, a registered nonprofit charity organization based in Illinois, has been sending pizzas to military service members overseas for the past five years.

Last summer, Pizza 4 Patriots and DHL shipping company, organized its biggest delivery yet, 30,000 pizzas to service members in Kandahar, Bagram and Camp Bastion, in Afghanistan, in celebration of Independence Day. The delivery began last summer. DHL donated their services to ship the pizzas from a service center in Chicago.

Ian Clough, CEO of DHL Express U.S., said he was grateful to Pizza 4 Patriots and proud that DHL has such dedicated employees.
"The comments of the U.S. troops receiving the pizza packages has been encouraging, and we really appreciate their valuable service," Clough said in a statement.

Mark Evans, a retired Air Force master sergeant who started Pizza 4 Patriots, said he has been working with Guinness World Records since last summer, to record the record. After the affidavits of witnesses, Guinness World Records officially recognized the pizza delivery as a new world record.

Evans said he was "completely satisfied and overwhelmed."
"The world record is secondary to caring for our soldiers by sending them a slice from home," Evans said.
The 12-inch pizzas were made by Great Kitchens, Inc. in Illinois with ingredients that were donated and funded by several donors.

“I am overwhelmed with joy that there are still good people out there who care enough for our troops to provide them with pizza. DHL deserves lots of praise for undertaking this complex delivery operation, which made sure that soldiers received fresh pizza from Chicago, Illinois. Our soldiers are so far away from home for long periods of time, and every time they receive something from home it makes them very happy,” Erica Boyd, 38, of Chicago, Illinois told YourJewishNews.com when asked to comment about the record pizza delivery for U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

Earlier this year, Pizza 4 Patriots send 21,000 pizzas to soldiers stationed overseas during the Super Bowl. Next, Evans is raising enough money to send 25,000 pizzas to troops worldwide.

African teens build urine powered generator

The teens behind the urine powered generator 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) These days, when everyone is trying to conserve power for environmental and economic reasons, several teens figured out a way to turn urine into power.

Four Nigerian teens have recently been credited for the invention of an electrical generator powered by urine.
Although Nigeria's economy is growing, more than half of the 162 million citizens of the country have no access to electricity, and even those who have access to electricity cannot be guaranteed to have power every day.

The teens used the opportunity to urge the Federal Government to privatize the electric agency, and renew and improve the country’s electricity generating equipment.

The four teens did not wait on the government and have found their own solution to the energy crisis. They used a resource that is free and unlimited, easy to obtain, and does not depend on government.

Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, all 14-years-old, and 15-year-old Bello Eniola, presented their invention at Maker Faire Africa entrepreneurs event in Lagos, southern Nigeria.

According to Maker Faire officials, the urine is placed in an electrolytic cell, which separates the urea nitrogen, water and hydrogen. The hydrogen then enters a filter, which is then introduced into the gas cylinder.

The purified hydrogen gas is introduced into the generator, and a liter of urine provides six hours of electricity.
The co-founder of the two-day event, Erik Hersman, said the event showcased practical innovation.
Maker Faire officials described the generator as "possibly one of the most unexpected invention ever.”

“Way to go girls, this is definitely an awesome invention which will provide cheap electricity for the poorest of people. Hopefully, the government will approve the system for wide public use, which will solve the energy crisis once and for all,” Sally Tucker, 36, of Ogden, Utah told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the urine powered generator.

While the new generator urine system has some safety measures installed, it could take more measures before it can be sold to the public.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

After a long shouting match, the customer finally confessed that she was a companion of her man, and that the man had promised to marry her.

“The confrontation must have been quite a sight to see. I can't imagine the pain of the hairdresser after finding out that her best customer was cheating with her husband.

Man with biggest penis in the world releases song called 'It's Too Big'

Jonah Falcon 
By: Shifra Unger

The man with the world’s largest penis is making headlines again after releasing a new song which became an instant hit called “It’s Too Big.”

Jonah Falcon claims to have the biggest penis in the world, to be exact, 13 and one half inches.

Falcon published his "It’s Too Big" song on iTunes and on another website. The song has exploded in popularity among pop fans.
The catchy lyrics describes how Falcon's size affects other areas of his life, including his romantic side.

"I have heard all the boys and every girl want to try to take a ride on the world's largest," Falcon begins before singing the chorus, "Too damn big, it's just too damn big. Your penis is too damn big yes, it 's too damn big."

However, when he was asked if the song is based on his own package, Falcon remained silent and his publicist, Gina Rodriguez, responded: "there will be no interviews."

“I heard the song and I am not impressed at all. I really don’t care about the size of Falcon’s package, and I don’t think other people are too interested in it as well,” Sally Simpson, 28, of San Francisco, California told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on Falcon’s new song.

This is not the first time that Falcon made headlines. As we reported earlier, turns out if you have a large penis you will be frisked by the TSA.

Jonah Falcon, was stopped and searched by the TSA in San Francisco International Airport, because of a bulky package hidden in his pants.

However, the 41-year-old New Yorker, was not packing a dirty bomb, drugs or a tube of toothpaste from Costco. The New Yorker has the world's largest penis ever recorded in the world.

In an interview with the news media, Falcon described his difficult time, with additional security guards after his luggage became suspicious.

"I had my 'stuff' attached to the left. I was not erect at the time," said Falcon, whose flaccid penis is 9 inches and 13.5 inches when erect. "One of the guards asked if my pockets were empty and I said, 'Yes.'"

Falcon said he knew the interview was about to get much more personal, when he was driven
through one of the X-ray body scanners and passed a metal detector.

"Another guard stopped me and asked if I had some kind of growth," Falcon said, laughing.
Indeed he did have a growth.

At the age of 18 years, Falcon knew he had something special when his manhood reached a whopping 12 inches. His penis was hailed as the greatest record in the world after an HBO documentary presented him in 1999. The Guinness Book of World Records however does not record such exploits.

Ring that lights up when couple holds hands

A man created a new must have engagement ring that lights up when the couple is close to each other.
Men often help design an engagement ring for their fiance, but few actually build one from scratch.

The California engineer decided to design an engagement ring that lights up when the couple holds hands.
It all began when the man, Ben Kokes, wanted to create a unique piece of jewelry for the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life.

On the surface, the ring looks like a simple titanium band with 23 diamonds set around the perimeter.
However, what makes this ring really shine is that every time the couple holds hands, the ring lights up.

In his blog, the love struck inventor said he wanted to do this “because doing things the hard way is just what you can do to show love."

“This is the cutest ring I ever heard about. I must buy it for my wife. I would also love for the inventor to build one for the man as well so we can both shine when we hold each others hand,” Fred Murray, 26, of San Diego, California told YourJewishNews.com when asked to comment on the new shine when you hold hands ring.

The ring works with a capacitor bank embedded inside the band of the ring, which powers the LEDs with an inductive load circuit, along with an inductive charger that the man carries on his wrist, the combination creates a shining light of love.

Goat seen on video leading New Jersey police on chase on busy highway

The goat being chased by New Jersey police

(Scroll down for video) Commuters on a busy New Jersey highway were shocked to see that New Jersey police cars were not chasing a runaway criminal, instead they were seen chasing a runaway goat.

The goat is believed to have escaped from a slaughterhouse and tied up traffic in one of the busiest highways in northern New Jersey on Tuesday, leading police on a chase of nearly two hours.

The chocolate brown goat with curved horns eluded five police officers in Jersey City for more than 90 minutes to jump back and forth through a center divider along the Pulaski Skyway, disrupting traffic in the east and the westbound lanes, according to city spokesperson Stan Eason.

Traffic was snarled from 7:10 am to about 9:00 am along the causeway, which crosses the Passaic and Hackensack rivers between Newark and Jersey City. The chase delayed thousands of vehicles which travel everyday through the Holland Tunnel to New York.
Four vehicles, whose drivers were trying to avoid the goat, were involved in minor accidents, police said. There were no injuries.

"A caller said: There was a motor vehicle accident, and there is a goat running on the road," Eason said, adding that Jersey City police were not alarmed.

The playful goat finally retired after 2 hours, Eason said, and officers were able to form a semicircle around it and secure it in a noose.

“It is amazing how the goat just didn't want to quit. It somehow knew that it was headed to the slaughter and was determined to fight death at all costs. So far the goat got lucky,” Lauren Ellis, 24, of Jersey City, New Jersey told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the runaway goat.

Authorities are still trying to determine where the goat came from. One of the ears of the goat is labeled with a U.S. Department of Agriculture label, indicating that the animal probably escaped from a truck bound for the slaughterhouse, Eason said. Till any company claims the animal, it will move to a wellness center for rural animals.

"If you can survive the Pulaski Skyway running for two hours and then end up in a slaughterhouse, it is a little sad," Eason said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Mother spends $30,000 on designer clothing for her son, 8, buys 200 pairs of shoes

Zak Antonia shows off his shoes 
By: Eva Fett

A mother is not holding back any luxury clothing from her child and is buying up anything the store has to offer, but the clothing needs to meet one condition, it must be a brand name.

The child is just 8-years-old, but this fashion kid is already a step ahead of most adults in the style area, with apparel worth more than $30,000.

Little Zak Antonia, is covered from head to toe in the best brands such as D&G, Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Gucci and Prada.
The only child has more than 200 pairs of shoes and even bathing suits from Armani.

Yesterday his mother, Vicky Antonia, 31, said: "I know it must sound like I'm spoiling him, but I just want him to look his best.
"What's wrong with wanting your child to look good?” She asked.

Glamour model Vicky, who is separated from the entrepreneur Zak's father, has so far spent $7,500 on her child's shoes, $15,000 on clothes and another $7,500 in accessories.

Most parents spend around $15,000 on clothes for children up to the age of 21, a recent survey found, but by the time Zak becomes an adult, Vicky will spend more than $75,000 on him.

“I am sure the child feels great now, but later on in life, when he will be on his own, it will be difficult for him to adjust and that could cause him severe mental illness. I would not advise any parent to spoil a child like that,” Roy Freeman, 22, of London, England told YourJewishNews.com when asked to comment about the mother’s brand name buying fetish.

Vicky’s family has begged Vicky to reduce her expenses, but Vicky from Epping, Essex, believes her brand name buying fetish is all due to nearly losing Zak when he was a baby.

He was born at 27 weeks and spent two months in intensive care with bacterial meningitis.
She said: "He is my only son and I think it is not a bad thing to want to treat your child."
