(Scroll down for video) Viewers and a television news crew were shaken up after their studio was rocked by an explosion during a live news show, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The three news anchors reporting in the United States remained agitated during the live show after the explosion.

At 5:30 am on Friday, anchors John Thomas, Jane Monreal and meteorologist Kristin Diaz of KIII-TV in Corpus Christi, Texas, were live on the air when the studio shook by an explosion.

The anchors were clearly surprised and jumped when they heard the strange noise.
However, they were able to laugh it off and continued with their live show, despite not knowing what had happened.

"Oh, the studio has had a bit of fuss, we'll have to see what it was about, we might be making our own news. Meanwhile, let's stay calm here and try to let you know what you need to know this morning," Monreal said.
"What a way to wake up," Diaz said.

The explosion was caused by a gas explosion in a house two miles away from the studio. Two men were injured in the incident, while three houses were destroyed.

(Scroll down for video) A couple told the world on a British television program that they are Jesus and Mary.

An Australian man said he is Jesus Christ during an interview with “This Morning”, on Monday.

AJ Miller and his girlfriend Mary Luck claim to be Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene, adding that they have memories of the crucifixion.

They said that they were both reborn.
"My name is Jesus, of course, but people do not feel comfortable calling me that," Miller said during the television program.

The couple, who have made headlines earlier due to their claims, told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford about how they are being ridiculed.

Miller said: "I have experienced that treatment most of my life. During my life in the first century I was treated the same way. I’m pretty used to it. What I'm saying is that people generally respond to my claims with laughter."
Miller, a former information technology specialist, said he can recall 2,000 years of life from the age of two, but spent many years thinking they were only dreams.

The 50-year-old said: "I had all the memories of my life, my whole life, 2,000 years, but was unable to comprehend until I was 40-years-old. I spent a lot of time thinking they were only dreams, but I've been telling people since I realized 10 years ago that they are not dreams. I guess that now there is just more media interest than before."

Speaking of Miller's previous life, Luck, said: "I remember him to be very similar as to who he is now, a very humble man, who gave to others without asking anything in return. We got married in the first century."

The civil war in Syria spilled over Tuesday into Israel, where at least 25 mortar shells were recovered after a long day of bombings, the IDF said.

The Israeli army said that the fighting centered around several villages on the border between Israel and Syria. A shell landed near the northern city of Aloni Bashan and the other fell in an open area near Ein Zivan.
Ronen Gilboa, a local emergency team head, said: "We see the smoke everywhere, and we saw a small fire."

"We as always, tourism and agriculture are working normally," he added. "We have heard these explosions for almost three years," he also said.

A spokesperson for the Golan Regional Council said the bombing, columns of smoke and fire began at 6:00 am and continued throughout the morning, but no Israelis were injured as residents of the region know that the areas along the border are the most dangerous.

The latest decision by the Transport for London has sparked anger among Jews after it had agreed with the United Arab Emirates to have no ties with Israel with regards to its latest cable car project.

Transport for London is facing criticism for its deal with the Emirates for a new cable car project in the capital.

According to the agreements, TfL must abide by the rules in the UAE, which includes having no ties with Israel or Israeli companies.
Amir Ofek, a spokesperson for the Israeli embassy in London, said the case raised "serious concerns".

Zionist Federation President Paul Charney said: "This sets a dangerous precedent, allowing money to dictate UAE government policy through commercial contracts in London. Bilateral trade has doubled in the last year, making Israel one of the major trading partners of Britain. I'm sure this contractual exclusion would not benefit the U.K. in the long term. I call on the TfL to urgently discuss this issue with the Ministers of Foreign Affairs and Trade and reconsider this agreement before there is any lasting damage."

TfL revealed the details after a Freedom of Information request.
The UAE has no diplomatic relations with Israel.
The latest deal is worth 36 million pounds over 10 years.

Florida official slammed for saying ‘Jewing’ during hearing

Cheryl Sanders 
By: Shifra Unger

A Florida county chairwoman was slammed for using a derogatory anti-Semitic word during a meeting.

Now, the woman said that the incident was blown out of proportion.

Cheryl Sanders used the term “Jewing” during a discussion about the salary of one of the county officials.
An argument broke out when Howard Nabors was appointed as the head of the county roads department of the Florida Panhandle.

People began a discussion about whether Nabors deserved a salary of $45,000, which Sanders proposed. Nabors has 26 years experience in the county, but also lacks a high school graduation certificate. Nabors currently earns $37,200 with the highway department.
Some who were present argued that there was a need to raise salaries across the board.

"Today is not the day to do it," Sanders said at the meeting.

"We are here today discussing Nabors’ wage, we are not here for Jewing on someone's salary. I cannot believe that you would all put a man, who has worked here for 26 years, down all because he does not have a high school education," Sanders said.

Sanders was later condemned for using the “Jewing.” She later said that her statement was just blown out of proportion.

By: John Roberts

An army veteran has filed a lawsuit against Apple for his failed marriage.

The army veteran, Chris Sevier, 36, who is also a lawyer, filed a 50-page complaint in federal court claiming that an innocent spelling mistake resulted in him viewing a pornographic image that “appealed to his biological sensibilities as a male and led to an unwanted addiction,” which then “poisoned his life” and ruined his marriage.

Sevier claimed that he began desiring younger, more beautiful women, featured in porn videos more than he desired his wife.

Sevier said that Apple ruined his marriage after he accidentally typed F***book instead of Facebook in the company's web browser, and the company’s search results showed pornographic images.

Sevier said the spelling mistake he made in Apple's Safari, introduced him to a lot of inappropriate images that caused him to become addicted. The 36-year-old has filed a complaint with the Supreme Court of Tennessee, holding the technology giant responsible because they should have installed a filter.

"The plaintiff is a victim of an Apple product that was sold to him without any warning of the harms,” the complaint states. "In using Safari, the plaintiff accidentally misspelled facebook.com, which led him to f ***book.com and a number of websites were shown that took him to images that led to an unwanted addiction with adverse consequences.

Sevier claims that viewing porn had caused his marriage to fail because he began to find the young women in the online video clips more attractive than his wife.
His addiction caused his marriage to fail. His failed marriage caused him emotional distress to the point where he had to be hospitalized.

(Scroll down for video) Getting people to join a gym can sometimes be a challenge.

However, if the gym is free and the equipment were made from WWII tanks, you will see a lot more people exercise.

The man behind the idea is a Ukrainian engineer, Yuri Kook. He created the outdoor gym near the Dnieper River in Kachalka in Ukraine. The gym is a 6.2 square mile outdoor fitness center and is located on the island of Tuhen in Kiev.

Besides toning your body at the gym, you will also have the opportunity to play with part of history, as some of the equipment in the gym were made from Soviet WWII tanks.

The designer did not just use tanks, he also salvaged boat parts and other scrap metals to build the original equipment. The outdoor workout area also has punching bags made ​​from tires and metal. Many of the machines were created in 1970 when there was a surplus of scrap metal in the country.

The salvaged parts were forged together to create the most primitive and basic strength and resistance machines. Composed primarily of metal and wood, the machines are painted blue and most do not have the luxury of padded seats or soft plastic coated pulleys.

Much of the equipment is chained to the ground in order to prevent theft.
Volunteers keep the gym running smoothly by maintaining the gym equipment, they also add their own handmade exercise equipment. The outdoor gym is now home to more than 200 different fitness machines.

A family took their daughter and her friends to a children's indoor activity center in order to celebrate her birthday.

However, the child friendly play center, was not very friendly when it came the time to sing happy birthday to the 8-year-old girl.

The staff of the Clowntown children's play center in London, called police when the father disobeyed their order to stop singing happy birthday to his daughter in the play area.

Colm Doherty said his group was not allowed to sing the song because they had not paid for a "birthday package", despite spending $450 on food, drinks and tickets for his daughter Cara’s eighth birthday. The staff attempted to intervene as a group brought out a birthday cake and started singing happy birthday.

Doherty, 47, asked the staff members not to ruin the party, which included 18 children, and reportedly promised that they will not eat the cake on the premises. Staff refused to allow them to continue with the celebration and they contacted police.
Clowntown staff said it was "against company policy for people to sing happy birthday on the premises without having booked a party room.

Officers reviewed the surveillance video of the birthday party, which took place outside the designated party room, at the Clowntown Center. Officer refused to take action against the birthday girl’s father, as the play center is specially designed for children to have a good time, and for parents to relax.

On their website, the center states: “Clowntown has a large area for moms and dads with a comfortable seating area, newspapers, magazines and free WiFi throughout. We also have fresh hot and cold food along with ice creams, freshly made popcorn, and hot and cold drinks, including our fantastic coffee.”

Doherty and his wife Marie, 49, said they had contacted Clowntown and inquired about making the birthday party for 18 children and six adults, but they were told there was no availability for the party room for that day. The family decided to visit the center anyway so the children can play in the play area.

After arriving, they realized two party rooms were not being used. The birthday girl’s father said he was in "shock and disbelief" by the actions of the center. The other six parents of the group were also furious.

Ian Slazenger, a Clowntown manager, claimed the group was offered a birthday package but chose not to take it. However, he admitted that the family spent more on entry fees and food than if they had used the birthday service, which costs between $10 to $20 per child.

(Scroll down for video) A large number of people participated in a “pay it forward” event started by one woman at a local Massachusetts donut shop.

It all began with a good gesture by a customer at Heav'nly Donuts in Amesbury, which triggered a chain reaction on Saturday. The event left a lot of people with smiles.

On Friday, Eileen Taylor made her usual stop at the popular donut shop when something strange happened.
"There was a woman in front of me and she paid for my drinks, and I thought it was great. It was unexpected," Taylor said.

So when I returned the next day, it was my turn.
"I knew my husband would probably kill me, because I recently lost my job," she said.
However, she still did it, even though money was tight. What happened next, though, she could never have imagined.

"After that I was like, ‘oh we are three cars deep, four cars deep’, and after the 15th car, I started to let customers know, 'Hey, we are 17 cars in, you can keep it going or you can take your coffee and go. Either way, it's your choice,'" the store clerk said.

According to the clerk, 55 customers rolled down the drive-thru back-to-back, each of them paying for the following order.

"Fifty-five consecutive cars. It just kept going. I thought that was really something," Taylor said. "It was wild, crazy! Loco in Heav'nly Donuts,” she said.
Employees were stunned that every customer was so willing and eager to continue the chain, especially when orders ranged from $5 to $20.

"We have regular customers, who do pay for the customer behind them occasionally, but have never had a chain like today," Wendy Clement, a store manager, said.

Customers and employees believe that the chain of good deeds will happen again soon.
"I hope so, I hope that it happens every weekend, and that it just puts everyone in a good mood," Clement said.
Taylor, job or no job, said she will not hesitate to be the one to get it going again.

"Oh, absolutely, it was great. This was really nice. Was worth it," she said. "It was the best $12 I ever spent," she said.
When asked who broke the chain, Clement said it was the last car in line, and just because there were no more cars.

Retired Canadian police officer kills wife after losing sex bet

Keith Wiens 
By: Eva Fett

(Scroll down for video) A former Canadian police officer was arrested and charged with murder related charges after killing his wife at their shared home, according to police reports in Canada.

Canada Police said that Keith Wiens, a retired officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, faces charges of second-degree murder in the August 2011 shooting death of his wife, Lynn Kalmring. In court on Thursday, Wiens claimed he shot Kalmring in self-defense after a Nintendo Wii game escalated into a violent internal conflict.

Wiens told the court that he and Kalmring often made sex bets on Nintendo games. On the night of the shooting, Wiens said he lost the bet, and when he went to the bedroom, he found sex toys on the pillow. Tired, Wiens brushed the toys aside and went to sleep, but Kalmring bothered him and accused him of not finding her attractive, the court was told.

Wiens also said he woke up when his wife hit him, so he told her to take her bags and leave. He said he pulled a gun from his nightstand when Kalmring left the room because he was afraid of her.

"She was crazy and she assaulted me when I was sound asleep. I was worried about what comes next," the husband told the court.
According to the testimony of the victim's sister, Kalmring had called minutes before the shooting and said she had thrown her engagement ring and plenty of cash at Wiens in a fit of anger.

Wiens said Kalmring came back into the room brandishing a knife, and he shot her from less than two feet away, hitting her under her left eye.

Police said that they found a kitchen knife in the left hand of Kalmring when they entered the horrific crime scene after Wiens called police and reported that he had shot his wife. Police said Wiens had no signs of injuries, and there was little evidence of a physical struggle.

A coroner told the court that the location of the knife was suspect, and stated that he believed that the husband had put the knife in her hand.
"I thought it had been staged and the knife had been placed in her hand after her death," the coroner said.

Iowa woman jailed after running day care from same home housing meth lab

(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested, charged and convicted after running a day care facility inside a home where her boyfriend operated a meth lab, according to court proceedings in Iowa.

Now, Davenport Police said that the woman, who operated a licensed day care in the same house where her boyfriend ran a meth lab, was sentenced to up to 10 years in prison Friday.

Amanda Taylor, a 34-year-old mother of four, pleaded guilty to four charges related to the operation of a drug lab, which was discovered by police late last year.

Her boyfriend, Dale Sammie Blumer, received a 25-year suspended sentence and was placed on probation last month after pleading guilty to four felonies, including the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Although the woman had no criminal record, Scott County Circuit Judge Gary McKenrick told the court that he would not consider parole for Taylor because she ignored the safety of children, whose parents entrusted her with their safety.

At sentencing, Taylor was confronted by Fawn Waack, the tearful mother of a child, who had tested positive for methamphetamine at a level three times higher than Taylor herself.

"The worst of it is because of your irresponsibility, I have no idea what is in store for my son. Doctors know little about the long-term effect," Waack told Taylor in the courthouse, explaining that her son is still suffering from headaches and has trouble sleeping at night.

Taylor offered an apology, but the judge showed no leniency in sentencing. Thirteen children were believed to have been exposed to methamphetamine at various times in the day care.

(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with murder related charges after he killed at least four people including a child in Nebraska, according to police reports in Nebraska.

Nebraska Police said that a doctor in Indiana was arrested Monday in connection with the unsolved murders of four people, including an eleven-year-old, who all had links with the Nebraska medical school he had attended before being fired.

Omaha Police said that 40-year-old Doctor Anthony Garcia is suspected of killing Creighton University professor Roger Brumback and his wife, Mary, and in the 2008 stabbing deaths of 11-year-old Thomas Hunter along with the family housekeeper, Shirlee Sherman.

Roger Brumback and Thomas Hunter's father worked in the pathology department at Creighton, where Garcia had been fired for erratic behavior in 2001. He was a pathology resident, Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said.

The murder case of Thomas Hunter and Shirlee Sherman in the Hunter family home in Dundee, appeared last year on "America's Most Wanted," and a $54,000 reward had been offered for information leading to an arrest.

Schmaderer said a panel was created last year after investigators discovered that Garcia had been in Omaha during the time of the four murders, and the panel has been monitoring Garcia for an unspecified amount of time.

Schmaderer said he and the panel believe that Garcia is a serial murderer.
The police chief said Garcia is being held on four counts of first-degree murder and four counts of use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Public records show that since 2003, Garcia has held medical licenses in California, Illinois and Indiana, but his temporary Indiana license expired in January.
A panel of local detectives, state police and the FBI has been working on the case.

"We felt that this individual will not stop unless an arrest is made," Schmaderer said.
Schmaderer said investigators believe that Garcia acted alone.

The attacks occurred in Omaha in neighborhoods where homicides are rare.
