A woman was arrested and charged with murder related charges after intentionally running over her former boyfriends with her car, according to police reports in Connecticut.

Police said that the woman used the car to pin the victim against the cement garage wall.

Relatives of Baldwin defended her actions, saying that Brown choked her with a belt and she trust tried to save her own life. Baldwin and Brown had a history of domestic violence.
Brown's family denied that he tried to suffocate her.

A bank employee is under fire after he accidentally wired $300 million after taking a nap on his computer keyboard during a wire transfer, according to a statement released by bank officials.

The bank employee who fell asleep on his keyboard accidentally transferred 222,222,222.22 euros to a very lucky bank customer.

The sleepy bank worker had been doing a wire transfer of 64 euros when he fell asleep at his desk with his fingers on the number two key on his keyboard.

Then the huge transfer was initiated by getting the approval of the employee's supervisor. The mistake was only later captured by a colleague, who was able to correct the error before the bank lost out on million of euros.
The bank has fired the supervisor for approving the large wire transfer.

Now, a court in Germany has decided that the 48-year-old supervisor should not have been fired by the bank for the error of his colleague, ruling that she should have only been reprimanded for the unfortunate mistake.

The court noted that the unidentified woman, who had been on the job since 1986, had been overseeing 812 transactions that day, with only a few seconds to check each one of them.

That court has ruled that the supervisor should be reinstated.

White horse in Israel's highway 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A white horse was seen on video running out of control on the main Jerusalem to Tel Aviv highway, Highway 1, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Drivers on the highway this week were surprised to see the white horse running on the road and blocking traffic. Ayman Ibrahim saw the white horse while driving in his car when he decided to ride behind it in order to protect the horse from the other vehicles. He also recorded the incident on video.

"On Sunday I was driving from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv when suddenly I saw the horse running on the road," Ayman Ibrahim said. "I drove right behind it in order to prevent other vehicles from running over the horse," Ibrahim also said. Ibrahim said that the horse initially jumped from lane to lane as it feared for its life. "I tried to steer the horse to the direction of Abu Gosh, but it ran to Highway 1," Ibrahim said.

When he realized that the horse will not stop running he did everything possible so the horse should not get hurt. "I signaled other drivers to slow down so the horse should be able to get some rest from running," he said. After a few minutes, Ibrahim decided to call the police and then exited the highway at the Neve Ilan junction to continue on his way.

At least four women ordered to select Israel’s rabbinical court judges

Israeli rabbinical court 
By: Sarah Weiss

At least four women will now sit on the committee of 11, which appoints Israel’s rabbinical court judges, according to a new law passed by the Knesset.

The Knesset approved the law this week, which requires that four of the 11 members of the committee that selects rabbinical court judges, are women.

Four members of the committee will be government representatives, two ministers and two Knesset members. Another two will be representatives of the Israel Bar Association. The law now requires that these "pairs" consist of one man and one woman each, ensuring three women on the committee.

In addition, the committee, which currently has ten members, will be expanded to 11. The eleventh representative will be a female lawyer representing clients in rabbinical courts, who will be appointed by the Minister of Justice.

As was expected, all ultra-Orthodox Jewish members of the Knesset were against the law. The law passed, as the ruling coalition in the Knesset does not include any of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Knesset members.

In Israel, the rabbinical courts preside over the divorce of Jewish couples. However, the rabbinical court system competes with the family courts, founded in the 1990s, in matters of child support.

Canadian Jewish community claims recent fire bombings of Jewish restaurants are not anti-Jewish attacks

Chops Resto Bar 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) The Jewish community in Canada claims that recent fire bombing attacks against Jewish restaurants are not part of an effort to attack Jewish interests.

Montreal police said that they have failed to link together a series of weekend attacks in kosher restaurants and a private Jewish home.

A police spokesperson said that there was not a single apparent pattern in the three attacks in three days, two of which targeted kosher restaurants and a third attack against a Jewish private home in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood.

The spokesperson, Simon Delorme, said that police found no evidence that the attacks were aimed at the entire Jewish community in particular.

About 30 people were inside the Chops Resto Bar shortly after midnight on Sunday morning when a Molotov cocktail was thrown through the window.

No one was injured and the suspects fled.
One night before, a private home was attacked, and on Friday, Shalom Cafe was also attacked.

"What we can confirm is that the three are different," Delorme said Monday.
"So it's impossible to say whether there is a link between the three cases," he also said.

Chops was attacked at least once before, in October 2012.
The Jewish organization Federation CJA said it does not believe that the wave of bombing attacks are necessarily anti-Jewish. It said in a statement that is in contact with the police.

"We are confident that there is absolutely no evidence that these incidents, while disturbing, by the way, were motivated by anti-Semitism," the federation said in a statement.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Airplane filled with Israelis evacuated after fire breaks out aboard

Bucharest Airport in Romania 
By: David Ross

At least one person was hospitalized after an airplane packed with Israeli tourists caught fire, according to a statement released by Ben Gurion Airport officials.

The plane with Israeli tourists was evacuated on Tuesday in a Bucharest airport moments before takeoff, as the fire broke out. The cabin was filled with smoke, causing a man to be rushed to a hospital after inhaling smoke. After the fire was extinguished, passengers initially refused to return to their seats, but the airport staff finally convinced them to do so and the plane took off.

Ben Gurion Airport officials said in a statement that a charter flight from the Romanian Ten Airways company landed just several hours late because if the incident. One of the passengers said: "when we were boarding the plane I saw flames on the side of the plane, and felt a strong odor emanating from it. I told staff members that I'm not going on the plane and I took my daughters off the plane. An inspector came and took all passengers off from the plane. I was afraid it might explode "

"Everybody ran in panic," another passenger said. One of the passengers lost consciousness and was evacuated to a local hospital. There were about 200 Israelis who were waiting to leave for Israel.
The passengers were then told that the problem was solved. Another passenger said a number of people suffering from smoke inhalation were treated at the scene by medical personnel.

Later, when airport officials told the Israelis that the problem with the airplane was fixed, passengers initially refused to board the plane. However, when airport staff said it could provide an alternative arrangement for those not wanting to fly on this plane, most of the passengers boarded the plane.

Hispanic television personalities get a taste of Israel during recent visit

The Old City in Jerusalem

Several high-profile Hispanic television personalities got to see Israel from up close during a recent visit.

By Anav Silverman

Tazpit News Agency for
YourJewishNews.com

For Raul De Molina, an Emmy award-winning co-host of a top-rated entertainment news show, El Gorda y la Flaca, a recent visit to Israel with a group of Hispanic media personalities rekindled a new kind of appreciation for food.

The Latin superstar, who hosts the popular show on America’s fifth largest television network, Univision Network, is also the network’s resident food expert.

The Cuban-born De Molina, along with several other leading Latin media figures took in the sights, sounds and tastes of the Holy Land with the organization, America’s Voices in Israel (AVI), which brings notable figures to Israel throughout the year. Other Latino stars in the group included Don Francisco, the iconic Chilean entertainer behind history’s longest-running entertainment TV program, Sábado Gigante.

For both De Molina and Francisco, the AVI-sponsored trip was not their first to the Holy Land.
“This is my second visit to Israel,” De Molina told Tazpit News Agency while the group was eating at Jerusalem’s famous The Eucalyptus Restaurant on Sunday. “I came in 2009 with my wife, but this time around I got to see a more personal side of the country.”

De Molina, who was in the middle of filming a food clip at the Jerusalem restaurant for Univision, stopped to describe the highlight of his current trip.

“The Friday night Shabbat dinner was very special,” he said to Tazpit News Agency, describing the traditional Friday night meal that the group experienced at a private home in David’s Village, across Jerusalem’s Old City.
“It reaffirmed for me how important it is to have dinner with your family at home. Going out to a restaurant is not the same,” said De Molina, who regularly writes about food and restaurants.

“We spent four or five hours at this Shabbat dinner and I loved every minute. In the US, families are so busy, leading separate lives from each other.”

“I can’t do Shabbat dinner, because we’re Catholic. But the family dinner concept is definitely something I want to import back to my home in America. Food can bring together the people closest to you in the right setting,” added De Molina, who frequently tweeted about his Israel trip to his 920,000 followers on Twitter.

Don Francisco, also known as Mario Kreutzberger, the son of Holocaust survivors from Germany who grew up in Chile, told Tazpit News Agency that he has visited Israel many times over his lifetime. “When I first came here 48 years ago, I could never imagine that Israel would grow to be the country it is today,” he said.

Francisco, who hosts Sábado Gigante, a widely popular family entertainment show that has been on air for 50 years (the longest-running variety show according to the Guinness Book of World Records) and seen by millions of Hispanic viewers across the world, would like to do a future documentary about Jerusalem.

“This is a city with a nest of faiths,” says Francisco, who has interviewed many famous personalities on his show including American presidents and international entertainers. “I would like to spend some time documenting Jerusalem in the future.”

U.S. government warns: Iran global terrorist activity highest in 20 years

The U.S. government has warned that the global terror activities by Iran has reached the highest level in 20 years.

By Aryeh Savir

Tazpit News Agency for
YourJewishNews.com

The U.S. State Department released its Country Reports on Terrorism 2012 in late May. This report provides the Department of State’s annual assessment of trends and events in international terrorism that occurred during 2012.

The findings of the report indicate that the year 2012 saw a “marked resurgence” of terrorist attacks perpetrated by Iran or its proxies. Iran’s terrorist activity in 2012, the report says,“reached a tempo unseen since the 1990's”. Iran sponsored terrorism through the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF), its Ministry of Intelligence and Security, and Hezbollah, Tehran’s ally in Lebanon. Iran’s terrorist activity in 2012 included attacks and attempted attacks in Southeast Asia, Europe, and Africa.

In January 2012, Hezbollah, in cooperation with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards, attempted to attack tourist sites in Bangkok visited by Israelis, using IEDs. A month later, on February 14, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards attempted another terrorist attack in Bangkok, this time using a magnet to attach an IED to the car of an Israeli diplomat.

On February 13, a terrorist attack occurred in New Delhi. An Israeli diplomat’s car was attacked using a magnetic IED that was attached to it. An Israeli diplomat’s wife driving the car was severely injured when the car blew up. Three Indian civilians were injured as well.

On July 18, an IED blew up in the back of a tourist bus about to take Israeli tourists from the airport to their hotel in the Black Sea resort of Burgas. The blast killed five Israeli tourists and the Bulgarian bus driver. In addition, 36 Israelis were wounded, three of them seriously.

On July 7, an attack targeting Israeli tourists in Cyprus by the Hezbollah was thwarted. Further attacks were attempted in Azerbaijan, on an embassy car in Georgia and Kenya.

In addition to terrorist activity, the report states that Iran was, and is still, involved in subversion intended to stir up instability in the Middle East by funding and supporting Shi’ite militias in Iraq, Palestinian terrorist organizations, Houthi rebels in Yemen, and the Syrian regime, thereby implementing its foreign policy goals.

According to the report, Iran provides weapons, training, and funding to Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist organizations, including the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command. Since the end of the second Lebanon war, Iran has assisted in rearming Hezbollah in direct violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701.

In addition, Iran has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in support of Hezbollah in Lebanon and trained Hezbollah operatives at camps in Iran. The Islamic Revolutionary Guards trained Taliban. Since 2006, Iran has arranged arms shipments to Taliban members through Kandahar, Afghanistan. Iran provides extensive support, including weapons, funds, and training, to assist the Bashar Assad regime in its war against the coalition of regime opponents.

The report added that although terrorist attacks occurred in 85 different countries in 2012, they were heavily concentrated geographically. As in recent years, over half of all attacks (55%), fatalities (62%), and injuries (65%) occurred in just three countries: Pakistan, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

The report offers some guidelines for the future: "We are facing a more decentralized and geographically dispersed terrorist threat. Defeating a terrorist network requires us to work with our international partners to disrupt criminal and terrorist financial networks, strengthen rule of law institutions while respecting human rights, address recruitment, and eliminate the safe havens that protect and facilitate this activity. In the long-term, we must build the capabilities of our partners and counter the ideology that continues to incite terrorist violence around the world."

Woman faces jail for letting her cat become overweight

Overweight cat illustration 
By: John Roberts

A woman was arrested and faces charges after her cat gained too much weight.

Guylene Roy of Ottawa, Ontario, has been arrested and charged under the animal cruelty act.

She is accused of permitting distress to the animal by allowing it to become overweight, thereby failing to provide acceptable standard of care for the cat.

The 12-year-old cat, named Napoleon, was allegedly so fat that it could not clean its fur. The Humane Society euthanized the cat, claiming it was overweight, in pain and in poor health. Now, the cat’s owner had been charged with neglect and can go to jail.

“That owner, Roy, had taken Napoleon to the vet on numerous occasions, and did not act on the advice given to her by the veterinarian,” the Humane Society of Ottawa said in a statement.

As a result, it is alleged that the condition of her cat worsened. When the Human Society took possession of Napoleon, they alleged that the cat weighed 25 pounds and was in such poor health that they had no choice but to end the cat’s suffering.

"This cat was in very bad condition," Humane Society inspector Miriam Smith said. "Failure to follow the advice of a veterinarian and allowing the pet to deteriorate like this is awful, and it is against the law." she added.

Roy could receive as much as a $1,000 fine along with up to 30 days in jail.

Strawberry daiquiri cocktail  
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A pregnant woman’s cravings can be intense at times, but to steal a drink at gunpoint, most people would say is extreme.

Police are asking for help to identify a woman in New Orleans who stole a strawberry daiquiri at gunpoint. Police described the woman as in her mid to late 20’s and "possibly pregnant.”

The woman went to the Bourbon Street store at 2:30 am. She grabbed a daiquiri from behind the counter and attempted to leave without paying. A daiquiri is a cocktail, in which the main ingredients are rum, citrus such as lime juice, sugar or another sweetener.

The security video shows an employee confronting the woman, and asking her to pay for the drink, instead of taking out money, she whipped out a gun and started threatening the employee while pointing the gun at him.

The employee walked away, allowing the woman to leave. Luckily, nobody was hurt in the incident. The woman, and her two male accomplices walked out of the store with the stolen drink. Now, police are looking for the woman and the men who accompanied her.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Deputy Michael Flores at (504) 657-6707 or the crime stoppers at (504) 822-1111.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Four men arrested after teacher recognizes student, 12, in sex video

By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A young girl, who was a victim of sexual harassment, will get justice thanks to her teacher.

A group of men are behind bars after they allegedly sexually harassed two underage girls, who they tried to have sex with.

The suspected criminals recorded themselves sexually harassing the girls and then uploaded the video to the internet. The video of the two girls, one of whom is 12-years-old and another who is a seventh grade student, at Centennial High School in Portland, Oregon, found its way to the Facebook pages of many high school students.

The video then went viral on Facebook. When the 12-year-old girl’s teacher saw the video, she recognized her student as the victim and reported it to the school principal, who turned it over to authorities.

“It is shocking how many young people boast on social media about crimes they commit. For police and prosecutors, social media has become a useful tool to catch and convict criminals, who post evidence such as video or photos of themselves committing the crime or showing off stolen goods from a crime scene,” Tony Blackman, 34, of Salem, Oregon, told YourJewishNews.com after the arrest of the five suspects.

It was not long before the authorities identified the adult men in the video, one of whom is a member of a gang known as the “Unthank Park Hustlers.”

The suspects and well-known gangsters have been identified as Nicholas Kelly Clisby, 23, Deshawn Ceville Rogers, 22, Cedrell Lyonell Washington, 20, and Terry Lamar Scott, 18, each of whom now faces multiple felony charges ranging from rape to endangering the welfare of a minor.

By: Debbie Gross

A bank is desperately seeking information leading to the recovery of a bag full of old silver shields that was accidentally thrown into the trash, a bank said in a press release.

Now, a Dutch civilian group has offered a reward of nearly $26,000 for the return of the silver shields it said were wrongly thrown away by an employee of the bank.

The Sint Sebastianus civilian organization, which was formed in 1617, said that the shields were accidentally thrown away at a Rabobank branch in Limburg.

Bank officials said they have launched an investigation into why 220 silver hand engraved shields were not in the safe where it should have been.

"This should not have happened," Joop Sprenger, director of Rabobank Parkstad Limburg said in a press release.
Group members said they hoped to have the shields back Sunday for an annual procession through the city of Limburg.

The group leader will use at least one of the shields during the parade, one that was not discarded because it was damaged and sent away for repairs.

(Scroll down for video) A dog was honored after it found a baby who was thrown into a dumpster as a piece of trash.

The dog in Thailand is being honored for the rescue of a newborn baby who is believed to have been wrapped in a plastic bag and thrown into a garbage dumpster by its mother.

Dog owner Gumnerd Thongmak said that his Thai Bangkaew dog named Pui, was playing outside his home. After being outside for a while Thongmak's niece heard the dog barking non-stop. She went outside to investigate, and found the dog carrying a plastic bag with a newborn baby girl inside.

The dog's owner rushed the baby to the hospital, where doctors worked to rescue her and make sure she was healthy. Doctors determined that the baby was born prematurely. At about seven months, the baby weighed only 4 pounds, 8 ounces.
Thankfully, the baby is doing well.

The dog, Pui, was honored by the Tha Rua district Red Cross and received a leather collar along with a medal. The dog’s owner received a reward of $300.

Police Lieutenant General Khaosod Jitkasaem Sonkom said investigators are working on finding the baby's biological mother, who they believe might be a teenager who works in a nearby factory. Thongmak said he wants to adopt the child. Child services said that five families have already asked to adopt the baby.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Bag stuck on deer

(Scroll down for video) A deer found itself in a pickle after a Doritos bag became stuck to its head, according to photos uploaded to the internet.

The deer, which had its head stuck in a bag of Doritos, was helped after some Florida sheriff deputies on patrol early Sunday spotted the poor animal.

Two Sheriff Deputies of Monroe County spotted the beleaguered creature on the side of No Name Road on Big Pine Key, Deputy Becky Herrin said.

"The deer must have loved that last piece at the bottom of the bag," she said. The green color of the bag suggested that possibly it was once full of Doritos Dinamita Chile Lemon Rolled Flavored Tortilla Chips.

Herrin said the deer was calm, while deputies approached to help it. Deputy Joshua Gordon took a picture of the animal with a cell phone, then removed the bag.

The deer then ran, Herrin said, pointing out that it was unlikely that someone deliberately had put the bag on its head.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

California school urges students to hand over their toy guns

By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A California school held a gun exchange program but not for real guns.

The school held a toy gun exchange program where students handing over their toys enter a chance to win a prize, according to school officials in California.

The event at the California school was held Saturday.
In exchange for colorful toy firearms, Strobridge Elementary School students received books and a chance to win a new bike.
Strobridge director, Charles Hill, said Castro Valley school welcomed the exchange because it believes that playing with toy guns increases the likelihood of children using real guns when they grow up.

A Hayward police officer was also at the event to teach gun and bicycle safety, and the Alameda County Fire Department had a crew to discuss fire safety.

However, gun rights advocates questioned the school’s position on guns.

"True, that some guns are used in a criminal manner, but most are used in defensive ways that prevent violent crime from occurring in the first place," Yih-Chau Chang, a spokesperson for Responsible Citizens of California said.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

Man angry after surgeon cuts off his nose without consent

Vishal Thakkar 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

(Scroll down for video) A man was left heartbroken after waking up from surgery, only to realize that a doctor cut off his entire nose, according to a lawsuit filed in Oklahoma.

The man woke up after a rhinoplasty procedure without his nose, and he is now suing the Oklahoma doctor responsible for the incident.

In court documents filed against the Oklahoma-based plastic surgeon Dr. Angelo Cuzalina and his practice, Vishal Thakkar, claims negligence and incompetence by the defendants as a result of his horrible disfigurement.

Thakkar said he first visited Dr. Cuzalina, a senior cosmetic surgeon who currently serves as president of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, in 2006.

Immediately after the first surgery, Thakkar noticed something was wrong.
"I had the first surgery and suffered some breathing problems, not bad, but I found it difficult to exercise and sleep," he said.

Dr. Cuzalina put Thakkar under the knife several more times in an effort to correct his initial mistake.
Thakkar eventually moved to New York in 2007, and had undergone eight corrective surgeries.

When he returned to Dr. Cuzalina in 2011, his nose was already infected, but the recommend additional surgery.
Then, last summer, while under for the 22nd time, Cuzalina just gave up and took the whole nose off.

An expert quoted in the suit alleges that the doctor made several basic mistakes along the way, which results in a defective surgical plan, which had no chance of success.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view

A teen nearly died after drinking soy sauce from a bottle, according to hospital officials in Virginia.

The young man drank a bottle of soy sauce, fell into a coma and almost died, after his body was flooded with salt.

The 19-year-old, drank the soy sauce after being dared by friends, and is the first person known to have deliberately overdoses on salt, only to survive without lasting neurological problems, according to Virginia physicians who reported the case. The case report was published in the Journal of Emergency Medicine.

Excess salt in the blood, a condition called hyponatremia, usually seen in people with psychiatric illnesses who develop a strong appetite for seasonings, Dr. David J. Carlberg, who treated the young man and works as an emergency medicine physician at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C., said.

After the man drank the soy sauce, he began having seizures and spasms, and friends took him to an emergency room. That hospital administered anti-seizure medications, and he was already in a coma when he was taken to the hospital.
"He did not respond to any of the stimuli we gave him," the doctor said.

The doctors immediately began washing the salt out of his system by administration of a water solution and sugar dextrose through a nasal tube. After half an hour, doctors pumped 1.5 gallons of water with sugar into the body of man.
The sodium levels of the man returned to normal after about five hours. He remained in a coma for three days, but woke up on his own.

For days after, a part of his brain called the hippocampus showed residual effects of seizures. However, a month after the fact, he did not show any signs of the overdose. He was back in college, and doing well on tests, doctors said.
