Famous New York hot dog hooker busted again for prostitution

Catherine Scalia 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) A New York hot dog street vendor has made headlines again, as she was arrested and charged with prostitution related charges, according to court proceedings in New York.

It was not the first time that the Long Island woman was arrested for prostitution.

Catherine Scalia launched into a dramatic tirade in court yesterday, claiming that police unfairly targeted her in the prostitution bust.

Police arrested her for allegedly selling sex in Westbury.
Scalia, 47, who was sentenced in May 2012 to seven days in jail for selling sex out of her hot dog truck, smiled and waved in court, and then became angry after a judge set her bond $10,000.

She pleaded not guilty and claimed that the police are just picking on her.
"I was framed!" She told Judge Colin O'Donnell. "There was no money exchanged! I did it for free. I have no money, I'm unemployed," she said.

She also told the judge that she and her four children have no place to live.
Scalia was wearing a black suit, sported wild messy hair, and talked to herself as agents escorted her out of the courtroom at the Nassau County District Court in Hempstead.

Scalia landed in court after allegedly accepting sex with an undercover officer for $100 on Friday, court documents state.

The police officer contacted her and asked for a massage at the Red Roof Inn at around 5:15 pm, according to police and court documents. Scalia, who lives in East Rockaway, drove her hot dog truck to meet the secret John.

She allegedly started rubbing his neck and top, and then agreed to have sex with the police officer, according to court documents. She was charged with a felony count of unauthorized practice for not being licensed massage therapist, and prostitution. Scalia was taken to Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow for psychiatric evaluation Friday.

“Instead of setting her up every year, why do they not revoke her license for the hot dog business, that would put her out of business once and for all. I would never buy a hot dog at a food truck that is used for prostitution, how disgusting!” Sherry Clark, 20, of Long Island, New York told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the hot dog hooker’s latest arrest.

Last year, she was convicted of prostitution after offering to manually stimulate an undercover police officer for $50. She pleaded guilty, and later appeared in court wearing a bikini.

She was also arrested for offering an undercover cop pleasure in 2004. At that time, she handed out business cards that read "Strips R Us", encouraging customers to call her for strip teases.

"This is what I like to do," she said last year. "I like selling hot dogs and show what I have. If you got it, flaunt it, that's what I say," she added.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Mark Zuckerberg summoned to appear in Knesset after fake facebook profiles of Knesset members pop up

Mark Zuckerberg ordered to appear in Knesset 
By: Sarah Weiss

The Jewish billionaire and leader of facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, was summoned to appear at the Israeli parliament after fake facebook profiles of Knesset members popped up on the social media website.

Knesset Member Moshe Gafni was recently surprised to find a fake facebook profile with his name.
After failing to contact the social network to address the issue, he announced a public invitation to its founder and CEO to attend an urgent debate in the Israeli parliament.

In the invitation to the founder of facebook, Gafni wrote: "To the distinguished Mr. Zuckerberg. I have the honor to invite you to the Israeli Knesset to engage in a broad debate on the protection of civil rights in the era of social networking. A few days ago, I discovered that an impostor had opened a facebook profile with my name. I reported the incident to the proper channels, but the profile is still active. I'm not just worried about me. I wonder how ordinary citizens can protect themselves from such harm. I ask you to come and participate in this discussion. I would be happy to see you as our guest of honor at the Knesset."

“Finally, we are seeing a government standing up to facebook. Ordinary citizens have been suffering from facebook imposters for a long time and nobody seemed to care. Israel’s parliament is really sticking for the little guys around the world,” Julia Holmes, 36, of Greensboro, North Carolina told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the Knesset’s move to discuss facebook impostors.

Gafni also said last Thursday: "The fact that any citizen can open a facebook page with my name or the name of another member of the Knesset or public representative is serious. I do not know if Zuckerberg accepted our request to attend the discussion, but we are the public representatives therefore, we cannot ignore the situation, which can cause a lot of harm to the public."

At least 30 Muslims killed in clash between Lebanese Shiites and Sunnis

Snipers lurking in Lebanon 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) About 3 dozen Muslims were left dead after clashes broke out between Shiite Alawites, a sect of which Syrian president Bashar al-Assad belongs to, and Sunni Muslims, in Lebanon, according to a statement released by hospital officials in Lebanon.

Armed clashes in northern Lebanon between Sunni Muslims and Alawites, have killed 30 people, a security official confirmed today.
Rocket propelled grenades, mortars and machine guns, were used in the six days of clashes in the port city, in the most severe lethal violence to rock the country, in recent years.

Most of the fighting has been between the Sunni neighborhood residents of Bab el-Tebbaneh who support the rebels fighting to topple Assad and the local Alawite Jabal Mohsen group, who support Assad.

Four people from Bab el-Tebbaneh were reported dead on Friday night, the security official said, including one who died of his wounds later. Three others, including a soldier, were killed in Jabal Mohsen.

The fighting ceased at dawn, but snipers were still operating in the area.

“The senseless killings between Muslim sects must be stopped. World leaders along with Muslim leaders, must set up a force to deal with the civil wars raging in many different Muslim areas, which disrupt the lives of innocent women and children,” Ismail Khan, 39, of Detroit, Michigan told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the recent deadly clashes in Lebanon.

Thursday was the bloodiest day, with 11 deaths.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Jewish teen scores Sports Illustrated model as prom date after being rejected by Kate Upton

Jake Davidson with Nina Agdal 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A Jewish teenager, who had asked out Sport Illustrated supermodel Kate Upton to his prom, but was rejected, scored another Sports Illustrated model.

The model Jake Davidson to out to his prom may not have been Kate Upton, but the Jewish Los Angeles high school student did not seem to care the least.

Davidson, who was rejected by Upton after a YouTube "prom-posal" went viral, managed to land a first class date backup when Nina Agdal, a Rookie of the Year Sports Illustrated model, agreed to attend his party Graduation with him.

If the Instagram photos and tweets are any indication, the 21-year-old Danish model and Davidson had a sensational time together on Thursday night at the dance.

Agdal, was wearing a floor-length green halter dress with her hair in a ponytail, while Davidson looked handsome in a tuxedo, as they posed together for photographers outside their home.

“The Jewish teen had some nerve asking out one Sports Illustrated model after another, but it certainly paid off, big time. He scored! I wish I had the courage to do what Davidson did. He is one lucky dude,” Joel Hunt, 18, of Los Angeles, California told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on Jake Davidson’s hot prom date.

As we reported earlier, a Jewish teen was looking for a hot prom date. He decided to create a video to ask Kate Upton to be his prom date. Luckily, Kate Upton accepted.
The dream of every young girl is about getting asked out to the prom in a romantic way. Kate Upton got it.

The blonde bombshell received her own invitation tailored dance, courtesy of high school student Jake Davidson. The Los Angeles, California, teen uploaded a video asking Kate to join him at his high school prom on May 23 and he has made some very convincing arguments.

"I am a Jew, 5’9, and on a very good day I cannot dance at all," Davidson said while shaving. "You are a Christian, 5'10’ and the video 'Cat Daddy' should have won an Oscar for Best Short Film. You could say this is destiny," he added.

The teen, while doing push ups, lists many common interests, such as food and Sports Illustrated. Sure, it's borderline embarrassing, but you cannot blame the man for trying?

So, what do you say, Kate? Think you have the time between shots for Vogue and star in Super Bowl commercial to join Jake for the prom? We bet you'll get the best bouquet. Luckily, Kate Upton accepted his invitation.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Grandma allows her son to rape her 12-year-old granddaughter

Kids protest against rape illustration 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A young girl was betrayed by every member of her family.

A young girl was raped by her uncle while her grandmother was in the house and did nothing when the girl cried out for help.

The grandmother failed to stop her uncle from raping her. Then, the family went against victim's wishes and forgave the rapist. They accepted money from him as compensation for the rape, instead of calling police. The teen was sexually abused by her 34-year-old uncle, who is the girl’s mother’s brother, while she was visiting her grandmother.

The 12-year-old from Mpumalanga, South Africa, has said that her uncle raped her while his grandmother was with her, but she did nothing to help. "My uncle told me he was going to kill me if I told anyone. I do not understand why my grandmother was in the room. There is no secret," she said.

The girl told her father about the incident and she wanted her uncle, who is a married man, to be locked up forever for destroying her life. The girl’s 66-year-old father, who is a pastor, said he has forgiven the man and accepted a payment of almost $5,000."We are Christians and do not believe in punishing people who have already apologized. This man has repented for his sins," he said.

The girl's uncle does not deny anything. He met the girl’s parents on Saturday and offered to pay damages. He then handed over almost $5,000.00, which the family accepted. "I know what I did was wrong. I do not know what came over me. I left my wife at home and headed to my niece. I'm so sorry," the rapist said.

“Good Christian parents protect their child, not the rapist who harmed their child. Police should investigate as to how many other rapists the pastor has forgiven instead of giving them over to police,” John Aguiar, 50, of Gauteng, South Africa told YourJewishNews.com when asked his opinion about the father who forgave his brother-in-law who raped his daughter.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Gerald Sedibe said police cannot do anything if the family does not file a complaint. "We need families to report these issues so we can investigate," Sedibe said.

Prankster paints newlywed’s house to look like movie character

Steve and Hayley O'Rourke’s pink house 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) When A newlywed couple returned home from honeymoon they were surprised to see their house painted pink and white.

The newlyweds, Steve, 32, and his wife Hayley O'Rourke, 31, from the United kingdom, came home from a nice honeymoon vacation only to find their house was painted bright pink with white polka dots.
Steve and Hayley O'Rourke have lived in the house for about five years before the incident occurred.

They instantly knew that it was the work of Steve’s brother, Russell O'Rourke, 35, who works as a mason. He spent two days painting the exterior of the house to look like the television character Mr. Blobby. The television show Noel's House Party, ran on BBC One throughout the 1990s.

The prank was done as a revenge for a prank O'Rourke pulled on him when he was on honeymoon, six years ago. Steve, who is a builder, put up a brick wall across his brother’s driveway. "We were quite shocked, but then we just laughed. We had to see the funny side of it," Mrs. O'Rourke said. Her husband has a lot of work to catch up on, it may take a while until he has time to repaint the house.

“This seems to be an act of brotherly love, It was meant to bring a smile to their faces. Now, their house became famous and people drive by to see it,” Doris Cruz, 28, of Edinburgh, Scotland, told YourJewishNews.com when asked her opinion about the pink house.

"Everyone seems to love it as people are stopping to take pictures of our house. They think it's funny. Some neighbors have said that it brightens up the street and we should leave it," Mrs. O'Rourke added.

Fugitive who killed his brother arrested while trying to sue police

Judge Chinembiri Bhunu 
By: Debbie Gross

Greed led to a man being arrested after being a fugitive for ten years.

Back in 2000, Cosmas Nyambara killed his brother and was convicted of the crime. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He fled before being jailed.

Nyambara of Rusape, Zimbabwe, was jailed for shooting his brother during a dispute over the inheritance of their father.

In 2000, Nyambara was sentenced to 15 years in prison, he immediately filed an appeal in the Supreme Court. He was unable to process his appeal within the allotted time which led the Secretary of the Supreme Court to declare the application abandoned and subsequently dismissed.

By law, Nyambara was supposed to be jailed after the dismissal of the appeal in 2003, but he could not be located. Detectives had been searching for him for many years and were unsuccessful in locating him, until now, when he filed a civil lawsuit against police.

Nyambara filed a civil lawsuit against the police department after officers had mistaken him for someone else in 2009 and shot him during that confrontation. "I was shot by a homicide detective who had me confused with the deceased armed robber, named Gift Tyres. Later, it was established that I was not Gift Tyres. I was freed but I was not compensated for the gunshot wounds I suffered,”

Nyambara said. Nyambara said he knew nothing about the arrest warrant and that if he had known he would have surrendered to the police. "The police had my address and never visited me to serve me with a warrant. Only after I decided to sue the police, detectives ambushed me. They wanted to make sure I do not continue the civil suit against them for damages of my injuries they caused," Nyambara said.

He also pleaded with the court for leniency, telling the judge that he was taking care of the wife and children of his deceased brother, but Judge Chinembiri Bhunu said he could not review the sentence which was upheld by the Supreme Court. Judge Bhunu ordered Nyambara to prison after hearing arguments from both the State and the convict. He will now serve the sentence of 15 years.

“Justice has been served. I cannot believe that he is complaining about not being compensated by police after they shot him. How about he first compensate his brother’s family for killing their husband and father?” Jasmine Ford, 26, of Harare, Zimbabwe, told YourJewishNews.com after Nyambara was captured.

Judge Bhunu also told Nyambara that he was free to pursue his civil lawsuit against the police while in prison.

Newly elected mayor and former driving school teacher crashes into supermarket

Mayor Terry Buckle 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) The newly elected mayor was left red faced when he crashed into a grocery store the first week on the job.

Ironically, he was a bus driving instructor before being elected mayor, and the accident marked his first accident in 56 years.

The former driving instructor, Terry Buckle, began his career as mayor of the British town of St. Edmundsbury, less than a week before the accident.

The 73-year-old mayor was parked in a handicapped spot, in front of a Tesco Express grocery store when he accidentally hit the accelerator smashing into the front door of the store. The mayor suffered shoulder injuries in the freak accident and was taken to a local hospital, but his pride was damaged even more.

At least he has a sense of humor. "I know people might think it's a joke that I became mayor and the first thing I have done is wreck my car,” he said. “But to me it was not funny, the thought that someone might have been hurt left me shaken up. I am so thankful that nobody was in the doorway when my car went through,” he added.

Mayor Buckle and his wife Pamela are known for their big hearts with an open house for anyone in need. The couple have been foster parents to many children for the past 26 years. So far, they have fostered 49 children, many with special needs or emotional difficulties. Some children have stayed with them for as long as eight years.

“Terry Buckle, is a good man, he has done a lot for the community. Accidents happen. One accident does not disqualify him or make him any less of a good person. We wish him good luck on the rest of his term as mayor,” Margaret Stewart, 39, of London, England, told YourJewishNews.com when asked her opinion on the accident.Mobile video not loading?

Woman raped after failing to pay $2 to man as compensation for directions

Zimbabwe police 
By: John Roberts

A woman was found without clothes by locals after she was raped over $2.

The 22-year-old woman of Buhera, Zimbabwe, was raped by a man after she failed to pay him $2.00 after he gave her directions.

The woman was walking alone on the street when she asked a group of men for directions to the Choto Business Center. One man offered to accompany her and show her where she needed to go, and the woman happily accepted his offer.

Police spokesperson Luckson Chananda said that after walking about 3 miles, the unknown man demanded $2 as payment for escorting her. When the woman told the man that she had no money, the suspect demanded sex as payment. The man then pulled out a knife and threatened to kill her if she refused to comply with his instructions. She was ordered to remove her clothes and he raped her.

Chananda said the suspect told the woman he wanted to rape her all night. The desperate woman came up with an escape plan. She told the man that she needed to relieve herself. He allowed her to do so without her clothes on, and she took that opportunity to escaped.

Divas Mangoma, 54, of Chuma Village, spotted the naked woman and gave her clothes to wear. She then filed a police report. The suspect is still at large.

“Nowadays, wherever in the world you are, it’s not safe for a woman to walk alone at night. I heard stories of women being raped when they walked by themselves at night in many different countries, even in the busy place in my neighborhood of Central Park in Manhattan,” Carol Green, 43, of New York City told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the incident.

Police are warning women not to travel alone at night. They also warned women to be careful about the people who volunteer to help them because in the end, those people could be out to hurt them.

Girl, 9, slams McDonald's CEO for tricking little kids into eating unhealthy foods

Hannah Robertson and her mother Kia 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A little girl slammed the McDonald’s CEO for tricking little kids into eating unhealthy foods during a shareholder meeting in Illinois.

Don Thompson, was placed on a grill by a 9-year-old, after she accused the fast food giant of trying to "deceive the children to eat food that is not good for them."

Hannah Robertson, 9, with her mother, flew in from Kelowna, British Columbia, to attend the annual McDonald's shareholders meeting in Oak Brook, Illinois.

"Something I do not think is fair is that large companies are trying to lure children into eating food that is not good for them using toys and cartoon characters," Robertson said during the question and answers part of the meeting. "If parents have not taught their children about healthy eating, then children probably believe that junk food is good for them, because it tastes good," she added.

Her mother, Kia, attended the meeting as a member of the advocacy group Corporate Accountability International, headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts with offices worldwide. Kia Robertson, 36, began "Today I ate a Rainbow" in 2009, described as a "nutritional interactive game" and is a nutrition blogger.

"It would be nice if you stopped trying to lure children to want to eat your food all the time," Robertson, who is in the fourth grade, went on to say. "I do cooking videos with my mother showing children that eating healthy can be fun and delicious. We teach that eating a variety of fruits and vegetables makes children healthy, smart and happy, because that's the truth," she added.

“This girl and her mother clearly have an agenda. Parents are the ones to blame when their children eat junk food. That is what parenting is all about. Parents and schools must teach their children to eat health, not corporations. McDonald’s is in no way responsible to get your child to eat healthy. Also, McDonald’s sells a full line of healthy meals on their menu,” Ruby Jordan, 35, of Chicago, Illinois told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on Robertson’s criticism of McDonald’s.

The child’s claims however, is simply not true. As the CEO pointed out, McDonald’s sells millions of dollars in fruits and vegetable meals each year.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Police said that the doctor, Ali Salim, had a few run ins with the law recently.
A woman told police that she was assaulted after visiting the doctor’s home. Another woman said she was sexually assaulted.

A third woman said that Salim insisted that she pose in her underwear while he painted the digestive system on her abdomen. Then, police said the doctor drugged, raped and killed a pregnant woman.

As we reported earlier, The central Ohio doctor was charged Wednesday with rape and two counts of murder in the death of the pregnant woman, whose body was found last summer in her car after she had gone to work as a cleaner at a house.

Ali Salim, of New Albany was indicted by a Delaware County grand jury of nine felony charges in the death of 23-year-old Deanna Ballman and her unborn child.

Ballman, who lived in Pataskala and was nine months pregnant, was reported missing the day before her body was found in a vehicle parked near a highway northeast of Columbus. A coroner determined that she died of acute heroin intoxication.

Salim, 44, was charged with two counts each of murder and tampering with evidence, as well as individual accounts of rape, assault, kidnapping, corrupting others with drugs and abuse of a corpse.

Salim was arrested at his home and taken to jail Wednesday pending his arraignment Thursday afternoon, the sheriff and the prosecutor said.

“Instead of helping people as every good doctor, this man abused his position to abuse, rape, and kill women. He should never be a free man again,” Sara Owens, 34, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on Doctor Ali Salim.

Salim was born in Pakistan and trained there at King Edward Medical College, graduating in 1993. He told the State Medical Board of Ohio that his specialties are internal medicine, emergency medicine and psychiatry.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A U.S. Military Sergeant was arrested and charged with sexual harassment related charges after recording female soldiers taking showers and using the bathroom, according to a statement released by military officials in West Point, New York.

The sergeant first class of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, has been accused of recording women cadets without their consent, sometimes when undressed in the bathroom or shower, according to Army officials.

The Army is in contact with a dozen women to alert them that their privacy has been violated by the suspect, identified as Sergeant First Class Michael McClendon, and offer support or advice, authorities said.

Sergeant McClendon, of Blakely, Georgia, was charged with indecent acts, dereliction of duty, cruelty and maltreatment, and actions prejudicial to good order and discipline. Sergeant McClendon, who had been assigned to the academy since 2009, was transferred to Fort Drum, New York, before charges were filed several weeks ago, Army officials said.

Authorities said some of the videos were taken in the showers, some in baths, and some other places on campus. Documents in the case indicate that in some cases Sergeant McClendon entered the women's bathroom and walk-in shower areas with consent of the women.

“A good Army man would not have acted in such a way. He has hurt countless women who were seeking to serve their country. I am glad that he was caught. Who knows how many women he recorded, and for how long? He should be severely punished for his actions,” Anne Gonzalez, 33, of Queens, New York told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the Sergeant’s charges.Mobile video not loading?

Suddenly, the three ducklings vanished, and they blamed the cat.

The truth was that "The White Cat", as they called it, was discovered a little later with a duck in its mouth. The cat was not eating the duck, instead, it was teaching the ducklings to embrace her newborn kittens.
Now, if that was not crazy enough, Ronan and Emma’s ducklings were seen breastfeeding from the cat.

“The cat is the most adorable grown up cat I have seen in a long time. It is extremely cute to watch how the ducklings feel safe in the cat’s arms. I would love to adopt such a family if possible,” Marilyn Butler, 32, of Wilmington, North Carolina told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the cat which was seen on video taking car of several ducklings.

The video has exploded in popularity after the Lallys were interviewed on RTE Radio Mooney's Show.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Armed robbery ilustration 
By: Eva Fett

A teen was arrested and charged with armed robbery related charges after robbing children while brandishing a knife and demanding just $1, according to a statement released by the New York Police Department.

The Brooklyn, New York teenager was arrested for going on a three days robbery spree last week, in which he only demanded $1 from each of his victims. Police said the 15-year-old suspect, whose name has not been revealed, stole from at least six children between the ages of 12 to 16, between Monday and Wednesday, last week in Carroll Gardens.

In all cases, the suspect brandished a knife at the children and demanded $1 from each victim. The suspect was unsuccessful in four of the incidents, but netted $12 from a 13-year-old victim, and stole a wallet from a 14-year-old victim. Police did not say how much money was inside the wallet.

Specifically, in the first incident, at approximately 7:00 am, the suspect approached a 12-year-old near Court Street and Second Street, brandished a knife and demanded $1. The victim resisted and fled the scene. No property was removed.

The second incident occurred at approximately 8:20 am, where the suspect approached a 14-year-old, near Henry Street and Second Street, brandished a knife and demanded $1. The victim resisted and fled the scene. No property was removed.

The third incident occurred at around 8:29 am, where the suspect approached a 15-year-old, near Court Street and Second Street, and demanded $1. The suspect searched the victim's pants pockets and fled the scene without property.

The fourth incident occurred at about 7:20 am, where the suspect approached a 13-year-old, near Smith Street and President Street, brandished a knife and demanded $1. The victim complied and handed cash to the suspect.

The fifth incident occurred at approximately 4:30 pm, where the suspect approached a 16-year-old, at 354 Hamilton Avenue, wielded a knife and demanded $1. The victim resisted and fled the scene. No property was removed.

The sixth incident occurred at 8:00 am, where the suspect approached a 14-year-old, near Smith Street and President Street, and demanded money. The victim complied and handed over his wallet to the suspect.

“This teen probably has serious issues at home. Why would he go through with 6 armed robberies just for $1? His parents need to be thoroughly investigated,” Bonnie Ford, 23, of Brooklyn, New York told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the teen’s robbery spree.

The teenager, who lives in Red Hook, has been charged with robbery after he was identified by the victims in a police lineup at the police station.

Officers charged her with the misdemeanor offense after being warned twice by police officers to properly cover herself.

“Did this just happen in the United States? I am shocked that a woman was arrested for wearing a swimsuit in public. She was not naked or anything like that. The police officers need to be charged with false imprisonment,” Wanda Patterson, 23, of Greensboro, North Carolina told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on Garness’ arrest.

Garness was taken to jail in Myrtle Beach, and was held on $469 bail, according to jail records.

She was not the only woman arrested for wearing a swimsuit over the weekend.
