A man has been on a mission to get the people of New York addicted to marijuana.

Judah Izrael has been in a feel-good mission to spread pot infused sweets with glorious names like White Widow, OG Kush and Blueberry Dream, from South Beach, Florida, to New Orleans, Louisiana.

Now, activist and co-owner of Weed World Candies is touring New York City in search of marijuana lovers.
"Marijuana has had a bad reputation for many years," Izrael, 43, said. "Now is the time to change that," he added.

The man drives a van adorned with marijuana leaves and girls in bikinis. Izrael has distributed lollipops along St. Marks Place, W. 4th St., Times Square and Union Square.

Izrael has also distributed the lollipops outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and in Jamaica, Queens.
"We settle everywhere," Izrael, dressed in Crocs, shorts and a t-shirt, said.

Most people however, ignored Izrael with his lollipops while others were dumbfounded.
"Is this real?" Asked one woman with an open mouth. "How does he not get arrested?" She also asked.
Izrael claims his candies contain only a small but legal amount of marijuana that gets you stoned.

"We are not giving blunts" he said. "We cannot guarantee that everyone will get high,” he added.

WHO approves Israeli made non-surgical circumcision device to fight AIDS

New circumcision device 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) The World Health Organization has approved the first ever non-surgical circumcision device. The revolutionary device was created by an Israeli company.

WHO has approved the device in order to prevent the spread of AIDS.
The device called PrePex, is the only method of adult circumcision, in addition to conventional surgery.

The non-surgical circumcision device utilizes a rubber band and was recently approved by WHO, opening the way for widespread use in Africa.

The U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator said it would "really help save lives" and was willing to use funds from the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, for it.

For a straight guy in countries where AIDS is common, circumcision reduces the risk of contracting HIV or becoming infected with HIV by 60 percent, according to the report.

The U.S. has paid for more than two million circumcisions in Africa in recent years. The WHO is aiming for 20 million circumcisions by 2015. PrePex can quickly be put in place by a nurse.

The foreskin dies because of the pressure of the rubber band, and falls off a week later, according to the report.
The procedure uses only topical anesthesia, and is safer than surgery.

Circ MedTech of Israel created the device, which passed by WHO’s rigorous approval process. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, will help fund the project.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Hitler tea kettle sales heat up after JCPenney removes billboard advertisement

Hitler tea kettle 
By: Shifra Unger

It is quickly becoming a red-hot hard to find item after JCPenney decided to pull their Hitler tea kettle billboard advertisement.

Within days that the world saw Hitler in the JCPenney teapot billboard in Culver City, California, the advertisement has been removed and the teapots are not available on the JCPenney company website.

They are, however, selling on ebay for up to $325 and listed as "impossible to find" and "red-hot". It started selling on ebay for $199.

JCPenney worked fast and furiously this week to reassure customers that any resemblance of its teapot to Hitler was unintentional.

As we reported earlier, some people were outraged by the sight of giant billboards which advertises a kettle that seems to resemble the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, according to photos uploaded to the internet.

A driver has published the first images of a giant highway billboard kettle that looks a lot like Adolf Hitler.
The advertisement by JCPenney has left motorists in Culver City, Los Angeles, California feeling as if they were just driven over the edge.

"I saw this yesterday and my boyfriend told me I was crazy, now, I feel better that I am not the only one who noticed this," that uploaded of the image said.

Another person said: "I'm looking at this from my office building every day and now I can tell my coworkers that I'm not the only one who saw Hitler the bells and whistles!”

“Even if it was not meant to resemble Hitler, JCPenney should immediately have all the billboards removed. Any resemblance of Hitler is extremely despised by most Americans,” Megan Long, 50, of Los Angeles, California told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment about the kettle Hitler advertisement.

Ear print evidence illustration 
By: Debbie Gross

A man was arrested and charged with robbery after his ear print was found at the crime scene.

French police have identified a man who they said is responsible for up to 80 burglaries.

Many of the burglaries were at the student housing in the city of Lyon, France.

Police caught the 26-year-old thief red-handed, then they pinned almost 80 other thefts on him, as a subsequent investigation found his ear prints on the front doors at the scene of 80 similar robberies in Lyon.

Police identified the alleged thief through the ear impressions left on the door while the man was checking if someone was home before robbing the place.

Ear prints, like fingerprints, are unique. The man left the incriminating prints while listening at the doors to see if anyone was inside, officials said, adding it was an "old technique", which could be very useful.

McDonald’s CEO loses weight eating company fast food everyday

Don Thompson 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) Some people have called for McDonald’s to sell healthier food items in order to help combat obesity.

However, the CEO of McDonald's Corporation Don Thompson, has shown the world that one can lose weight even when eating McDonald's fast food everyday.

In a conference call with analysts, Thompson revealed that he shed about 20 pounds in the past year while eating at McDonald’s every single day. Thompson, who has been on the job for less than a year, was responding to a question about how the company is adapting amid growing concern about obesity.

Thompson said he lost the weight by “being active”. He noted that Europeans walk a lot and it is rare to see Europeans who are "very, very heavy." For its part, McDonald's in recent years has increased its marketing campaign to highlight their healthier menu options, such as their healthy salads, wraps, and sandwiches.

At the beginning of the conference call, Thompson also said that salads are only 2 percent to 3 percent of sales. He said there were other ways the company could incorporate fruits and vegetables into their menu, pointing to recently introduced chicken wraps. But in the future, he said: "I do not see salads as a major growth driver."

“People have to grow up and take responsibility for what they eat or feed their children. They need to stop blaming fast food chains for their weight problem. Nobody forces anyone to eat out, everyone has the choice to walk into a supermarket to buy healthy foods,” Kathrine Wilson, 45, of Los Angeles, California told YourJewishNews.com when asked her opinion on the issue.

Man arrested after biting pregnant wife's behind during argument

Stepfon Everton Muse  
By: Sarah Weiss

A man was arrested after his wife showed police a bite mark on her behind.

The couple was in their car when they began arguing. The wife, who is pregnant, attempted to leave, but her husband restrained her.

Police were called on reports of a disturbance between the couple. When police arrived, they found Stepfon Everton Muse and his wife in their car. The victim told police that when she tried to leave the car, her husband detained her, beat her, and then bit her behind.

Muse, 30, of Palm Bay, Florida, was arrested on charges of aggravated assault after investigators saw a visible bite mark on the victim’s behind. Muse was arrested and held without bail in the Brevard County Jail.

Lately, there has been a number of reports of couples all over the country, who seem to go for sensitive and private areas during their arguments. One woman, Yolivel Lopez allegedly poured burning hot liquid on top of her husband, Nefer Netan’s private parts after receiving a call from his mistress saying that she just had sex with her husband.

Christina Salinas, of Sacramento, California, bit her husband’s privates after he made her come home early from the rodeo.
In another case, a Southern California jury has convicted Catherine Kieu, the woman accused of drugging her estranged husband, cutting off his penis and throwing it in the garbage disposal.

When people are angry they tend to do things without thinking, and in many cases it ends up ruining the other person's life.

(Scroll down for video) A 24-year-old man was arrested and charged with theft related charges after he was caught on video stealing a mannequin, adult toys and sexy lingerie to dress “her”.

Arthur Ray Brown, of Bainbridge Island, Washington, walked into an adult entertainment store and grabbed a mannequin from the display window and ran out the store.

Martin Walker, the store's marketing director alleges that when Brown came back at night, he wore the wig from the mannequin he stole earlier in the day. When deputies arrived at the scene they found Brown riding his bike. Officers said they were able to track him easily as he left a trail of adult toys behind.

Brown apparently cut his arm during the break in. He was arrested for robbery and held on $15,000 bail.

"Occasionally people ask if we sell the mannequins," Walker said. "It is very rare for someone to go through so much trouble just to get their hands on one," he said. The mannequins can be bought for about $600.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Former Microsoft executive plans to create first U.S. brand marijuana

Jamen Shively 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) Microsoft is known for being the leading maker of computer software, but how about marijuana?

A former Microsoft executive has announced plans to create the first U.S. brand of marijuana, and hoping to eventually import cannabis legally from Mexico. The former executive also said he was launching his business through the acquisition of medical marijuana dispensaries in three U.S. states.

Jamen Shively, former director of corporate strategy at Microsoft, said he expects the his Seattle-based company will become the leader of both recreational and medical cannabis, just like Starbucks is the dominant name in coffee, he said.

Shively, 45, whose six years at Microsoft ended in 2009, said he was seeking $10 million from investors.
The use, sale and possession of marijuana is still illegal in the U.S. under federal law. Two U.S. states however, have legalized recreational marijuana and are one of 18 states that allow it for medical use.

"It's a giant market in search of a brand," Shively said about the marijuana industry. "We would be happy if we can capture 40 percent of the market, around the world," he added.
A 2005 United Nations report estimated the global marijuana trade to be valued at $142 billion.

The state of Washington and Colorado became the first two U.S. states to legalize recreational marijuana when voters approved the measure, last year.

The sale of cannabis or marijuana is still illegal in many parts of the world, although countries, mainly in Europe and the Americas have decriminalized possession of small amounts of it. A number of countries have decriminalized or legalized cannabis for medical use.

Man blows up his behind while cleaning pants with pressurized air machine

Pressurized air pump 
By: Moses Gold

A man was nearly killed while cleaning his pants with a pressurized air machine, according to hospital officials in China.

The man, who works in a factory in China, was cleaning his pants with an industrial strength air pump when a slip of the wrist sent air into his behind. Surprisingly, the 26-year-old survived to give a detailed account of his ordeal.

The man said that at first, he did not feel anything unusual, but then began to experience severe pain in his abdomen. Doctors said that the air shot through his colon, causing it to explode, and then the air blew up his abdominal cavity, putting pressure on his other organs.

Co-workers, who witnessed the incident, rushed the man to Sun Yat-sen University Sixth Hospital, where doctors ordered a CT scan. The analysis revealed that a large amount of air was trapped inside of him, and his condition was serious.

He was immediately sent to the operating room. When the doctor made the first incision he heard a pop, as the air trapped inside the man ran out. Then, doctors cleaned out the affected areas.

The man spent four days in the Intensive Care Unit, and currently remains in the hospital for observation.
When interviewed, doctors said that the man was very lucky to have survived.

Brandon Holt

(Scroll down for video) A family was left devastated after their son was killed by his younger friend.

Now, the family of the 6-year-old boy, who was accidentally shot and killed by his 4-year-old playmate, is suing the parents of the young boy.

Brandon Holt was killed several months ago while playing with a fully loaded gun, which he found in Melissa and Antonio Senatore’s home. Authorities have said the 4-year-old boy took his fathers loaded .22 caliber rifle and fired a shot that hit Brandon in the head.

The lawsuit filed by the Holt family is suing Melissa and Antonio Senatore, of Toms River, New Jersey, claiming that their recklessness led to the child's death.

"Given the horrible death of Brandon, his suffering before his death, his young age, and the parents’ emotional suffering, the case has a value well into seven figures," the lawyer for the Holt Family, Kevin Parsons, said. "Clearly, the Holt family would rather turn back time and have their son back, but unfortunately, that's not possible," the lawyer added.

The younger boy’s father, Anthony Senatore, was charged with child neglect and failing to secure weapons. Authorities found four shotguns and ammunition, accessible to Senatore's three children. His children are ages 4, 8, and 12-years-old.

Senatore, is free on $100,000 bail and could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted. In a statement, Senatore’s lawyer Robert Ebberup, said: "There is not a day that passes when my client does not feel pain and sadness for the loss of such a wonderful child. The Senatores are deeply saddened by Holt's death.”Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Mother, daughter, adult movie star team looking for father, son, to join them

Mother Jessica and daughter Monica 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) A mother and daughter became famous for doing adult movies together.

The two, who make adult movie videos together, are now looking for a father and son team, who are willing to join them on camera.

Jessica Sexton, 56, and her daughter, Monica, 22, of Tampa, Florida, have set up their own website where they showcase their adult movie videos. For the past 18 months they have been recording adult movie scenes together sometimes sharing the same partner.

Now, the mother and daughter are hoping to take their relationship to a new level. They are searching for a father and a son, who are willing to record adult movies together with them.

The pair started recording adult movies when they were having financial difficulties. As we reported earlier, a mother and daughter have gone to an extreme to save their home from being foreclosed by the bank. The mother and daughter have made adult movies videos together.

The mother, is a former waitress, and her daughter, is a high school dropout. Jessica and Monica Sexton, the mother-daughter duo from Tampa, Florida, went into the adult movie industry with the intention of making some serious money.

According to reports it was the daughter Monica, who suggested the idea to her mother, when the family was having financial problems. The mother and daughter claim that this is not technically incest because they refrain from making physical contact with each other during sex, while participation of a third-party.

Although in the video it may seem as though they are touching or kissing, they claim that it is not happening. Beverly Hills-based psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman believes that these actions are "emotionally incestuous"Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Cat seen on video ringing owner's doorbell to be let in

Cat rings doorbell 
By: Debbie Gross

(Scroll down for video) A cute cat was seen on video ringing its owner’s doorbell in order to be let inside the home, according to video uploaded to the internet.

However, not all cats publicly announce their arrival. As we reported earlier, some people just don't like animals at all and will do anything to get rid of them.

A woman called police after she allegedly witnessed two kittens mating in her front yard.

As ridiculous as it seems, is not the only time recently someone called police to report a cat. Several months ago, a Washington state man called police to report a stray cat that had gotten into his backyard. But at least in this case, the man was calling out of the concern for the welfare of the cat, as it was cold outside instead of complaining about its mere presence.

The Wisconsin Rapids Police Department included the truly bizarre call in its public list of calls received. However, there is still no information on how the department responded to the call of the unnamed woman.

And besides, at least one law enforcement officials has said that Wisconsin citizens should not be too dependent on their service, saying that people calling police for life threatening situations might not be the best option after budget cuts have caused delays in response times.
Either way, I doubt that this incident will do in the next installment of the "crimes Cat" series of books.

“If this woman really has a hatred toward cats she should not be calling the police to occupy their time for such things, she should have rather called animal control to take care of her problem. I believe that if she does this again she should be charged with misusing the police system as calling the police should be reserved for true emergencies,” Rusty Beebe, 49, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin told YourJewishNews.com after learning about the strange police call.Mobile video not loading?

(Scroll down for video) If you ever decide that homosexuality is not your style, there is a new app for that.

Usually, people use apps for entertainment purposes or as a tool to help in the workplace. However, there is a new strange application that claims it can cure homosexuality within 60 days.

“Setting Captives Free” has created a new application called "Door of Hope". This application was put on Google Play and Apple iTunes for free to all users. The app was named after a verse from the Old Testament. “Setting Captives Free” claims to have created the application that can cure, not just homosexuality, but all sins, including drinking, smoking, and pornography.

The 60-day interactive course called "Door of Hope" aims to teach users how "to enjoy a new relationship with the Lord and how to find freedom from homosexuality."

However, within 24 hours, Apple iTunes has removed the application. Apple blamed their decision on angry Apple users. However, this application still exists on Google Play, although Google Play said it is "investigating reports on the application," so it might not stay on Google for much longer.Mobile video not loading?

Groom marries bride's younger sister after bride runs off with lover

Bride and groom illustration 
By: Eva Fett

A groom who was dumped at the altar ended up marrying his bride’s younger sister.

After performing the traditional marriage rituals with no signs of trouble, a woman, 22, dumped her husband along with his 300 guests waiting to kick off the celebrations.

When the family finally realized that the bride will not show up for the arranged marriage, they tried calling her on her cellphone, but when she did not answer, the family called police for help.

During the investigation, the family discovered that the bride had been friends with another man in her neighborhood.
Police tried to track down the runaway bride, but after a while they became concerned that the two may have entered a suicide pact.

All the worries and anxieties disappeared later in the day, when the two returned as a married couple. The police said: "No charges can be filed as they are two adults who have decided to marry."

The only problem that remained was the young abandoned man, who remained without a wife. However, since 90 percent of marriages in India are arranged the family quickly came up with a clever plan. The runaway bride’s younger sister was willing to marry the young man.

At least all the wedding guests did not have to go home empty-handed.
