By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A video was uploaded to the internet showing women dancing provocatively near an open grave.

The young woman, who passed away, was part of a dance group known as “Party Animals”. The group frequented parties where they danced.

During the funeral, one of the dancers started dancing and shaking her behind, prompting others to join in.

Many people in the community felt that dancing near the fresh grave was disrespectful to the deceased.
But her friends who attended the funeral said that this is what their friend would have wanted. “This is the life she lived, we are just honoring her with what she did on earth while she was alive,” one woman said.

The women of Pretoria, South Africa, who were all dressed in the same mini dress, were struggling to keep their backside covered while they were shaking it.

Surprisingly, none of the people at the funeral seemed to be crying, mourning the loss of life or express any pain, rather people were whistling, singing and dancing to loud music.
The men seemed to have enjoyed the “show”. Some men were seen recording the dancing.

In another incident at a funeral in Mutare, Zimbabwe, police arrested four people for causing a stir at the funeral. Four women have danced without cloths in front of mourners.

(Scroll down for video) A man got a great bargain when a prostitute agreed to take only $10 for her services.

The man paid the prostitute $10 in quarters, but before he could get what he paid for he was arrested by police.

Larry Collum, 63, of Greenwood, South Carolina, was arrested Wednesday night after police stopped him because he was driving too slow.

There was another reason police were following him, they suspect illegal activity. The officer noticed Rhonda Kelley, 41, in the passenger seat of the car. Kelley is well-known to police as she has been arrested for prostitution before.

At first, Collum told police he was giving his lady friend a ride home. But while being interrogated, he was told that Kelly was a known prostitute. That’s when he admitted to paying her with a $10 roll of quarters.

Police found the roll of quarters in Kelley’s possession, but she denied getting the money from Collum.
Collum was charged with soliciting a prostitute, while Kelley was booked on charges of prostitution.

Collum was taken to the Greenwood County Detention Center where he allegedly told officers he paid for sex because his wife had been in a nursing home for 13 years. He said he had made a grave error of judgment.

This is not the first time Kelley made headlines by prostituting herself.
A few months ago, she was arrested for prostitution along with Marvin Holmes, 33, who was accused of pawning his wedding ring to pay Kelley for sex.

Kelley and Holmes went to a pawn shop where Kelley received $20 for the ring. Then, they stopped at a "crack house" where Kelley bought and smoked the drugs before they had sex. They were both arrested and charged with solicitation of prostitution.

Town at loss after women call police to get personal favors

(Scroll down for video) Emergency workers are here to help people in need, but some women have started using emergency workers for personal favors.

These women might just need to go out and get themselves men to help them with the simple things in life.

Jeanie Dufresne of Hooksett, New Hampshire, called police ten times this month, but this time Hooksett Police said that she has gone too far. Dufresne was arrested over the weekend after she called police and asked for a pen.

"I just want a simple thing," Dufresne told the police dispatcher. “What is it?” He asked. "A pen," she said.
The dispatcher was shocked and frustrated. "You want a pen?" the dispatcher asked. "You dialed 911 because you want a pen? Did you realize that it is definitely not an emergency. You are tying up a 911 line because you need a pen,” the dispatcher said.

Hooksett Police chief Peter Bartlett said that officers have to respond to all 911 calls and that these bogus calls may delay getting help to these who really need it. Officers decided it was time to arrest Dufresne since this was the tenth time she called police this month, every time with different non-emergency request.

Dufresne was arrested for misuse of 911. She was held in lieu of $5,000 cash bail.
In a similar incident, another Hooksett, New Hampshire woman was arrested for calling police because she wanted help ordering Chinese food.

Elizabeth Niemi, 57, called 911 to get medical help. When the fire department arrived, they learned that she just wanted help in ordering chinese food. She was also charged with misuse of 911.

"Hopefully holding these people accountable for what they have done we can get the word out there that the emergency system is to be used only for emergency calls and services, not for something frivolous," Bartlett said.
Maybe the community can set up a dating service for older women.

A memorial for gay victims of the Nazi regime 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) For the first time ever, gay victims of the Nazi German regime will have their own memorial in Israel, according to a statement released by Israeli officials.

The memorial for homosexuals persecuted by the Nazi regime will be built by the municipal government of Tel Aviv.

The monument, which will feature a giant concrete pink triangle reminiscent of the symbol used by the Nazis to mark homosexual prisoners, will be built in Meir Park in Tel Aviv. The exact plans will be unveiled by the end of the year.

The monument was the brainchild of a Meretz city council member, Eran Lev, who took the idea to ​​Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai.
The monument was designed by landscape architect and professor Yael Moriah, who also oversaw the recent renovation of Meir Park.

Lev said that the location of the monument in the park, near the Tel Aviv Gay Center, was symbolic.
"One of the first Nazi restrictions on Jews was against going to public parks," Lev said.

This will be the first and only memorial site in Israel that mentions non-Jewish victims of Nazis, who were persecuted.
At least 50,000 gay men were sentenced under paragraph 175 of Germany with many being subjected to cruel medical experiments, castration, or sent to camps to work to death.

15,000 known homosexuals were sent to concentration camps such as Sachsenhausen, Auschwitz and Birkenau during the time the Nazis were in power with 60 percent dying before the camps were liberated.
An unknown number of gay men were sent to concentration camps under other pretexts.

Belgium prohibits Jewish couple from naming their baby Jerusalem

Hagar and Alinadav Hyman 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A Jewish couple was devastated after authorities refused to approve the name they chose for their newborn. “Jerusalem is not a name approved for people in our country,” the Jewish couple, who are originally from Israel, was told.

Hagar and Alinadav Hyman of Brussels, Belgium, wanted to name their firstborn Alma Jerusalem.
However, city officials refused to register the name, because Jerusalem is not included on a list of approved names for babies born in Belgium.

The couple, who have lived and worked in Brussels for the past three years, said they were surprised by the decision.
Mr. Hyman said: "The clerk asked for the baby's name, so I said: ‘Alma Jerusalem’. After looking at the computer, the clerk said Alma was fine, but Jerusalem did not appear in the list of approved named, so it could not be used to name the baby.”
The couple said they wanted to name their daughter after the capital of their country, as they grew up in Jerusalem, and both miss the city.

However, the employee at the municipal offices in Brussels offered a compromise.
He said if I got a letter from the Israeli embassy confirming that Jerusalem is a valid name, then he could issue a birth certificate with the name.

Hyman said that this has not helped and he is trapped.
"We cannot take the baby to Israel because he has no passport, and no Israeli consular will write such a letter, the Belgians are not going to register the birth," he said.

Mrs. Hyman works as a security officer with El Al Israel Airlines, while her husband works in the European Parliament.

Jewish woman with head covering 
By: Eva Fett

According to a report, there is a new law proposal in Quebec, which calls to ban people from wearing religious symbols in public places.

The ban will first be applicable to judges, police officers and other areas of public administration. The ban includes the Jewish kippa, the Muslim hijab, and the Christian cross.

According to reports, the Parti Quebecois (PQ), a leftist provincial political party in Quebec, plans to introduce legislation prohibiting religious head coverings in government offices, schools, hospitals and any place that receives public funding.
They want everyone to be equal and leave their "religious symbols" at home. Women and girls will also have to remove their head coverings and veils before entering these government-funded places.

The ban might include the ultra-Orthodox Jewish tichel covering, but no word yet on whether Jewish women will have to remove their wigs before entering these places.
Crucifixes will be included in the ban, but not the large crucifix, as it is a symbol of national heritage of Quebec and is not considered a religious symbol.

There is a consensus among all three parties in Quebec parliament to prohibit a man or a woman, who uses a public service including health services, to request that they be served by a person of the same gender.
There is also said to be a consensus in favor of allowing Muslim women and Jewish “Taliban women” to wear their niqab and the burqa in public places, which is currently banned in France.

A member of the delegation, Karnail Singh, told the Times of India that weather conditions in Israel are similar to Punjab but that in Israel there are “special arrangements to control heat stress.”

Singh also pointed out the two different types of dairy farms in Israel: cooperative and family based, which employ such technology as solar systems that generate electricity for the farming functions. There are 776 family-owned farms and 163 cooperative-based farms in Israel.

According to the MASHAV website, the aim of the training program was “to showcase Israeli innovations achieved by leading Israeli companies as well as to share advanced modern dairy technologies.”

Pilarski, of 653 Melrose Lane in Beecher, was arrested on a charge of drug possession and was booked into the county jail.

Texas kindergarten teacher jailed after ordering students to whack bully

Cynthia Ambrose 
By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) A teacher was arrested, charged and convicted after ordering her students to assault the class bully, according to court proceedings in Texas.

Now, the judge in the case has sentence the teacher to jail.
A former Judson teacher was sentenced on Tuesday to two years probation with 30 days in jail.

District Judge Sid Harle said he wanted to make sure that Cynthia Ambrose, 44, won’t be teaching for two years. The probation term was the maximum allowed under the law.

The judge was upset to learn that Ambrose faced only one-year suspension by the Texas Education Agency. The judge also allowed the woman to serve her prison sentence in work release or to check into the Bexar County Jail on weekends. Ambrose cried when she was handcuffed and became ill while waiting in the jury box.

"This is absolutely a parent’s worst nightmare," the judge said. "They send their children to school and trusted them with you," he also said.

Ambrose, a former kindergarten teacher at Salinas Elementary School, was found guilty of misdemeanor charge after telling her students to show 6-year-old Aiden Neely "how it feels to be bullied" by hitting him.

Ambrose tearfully told the judge that she is really a good person. "I hope and pray that all parties involved find peace," she said.

"This was not really a case of bullying as portrayed in the media. This was really a case of child abuse," Patrick Ballantyne, the state prosecutor, said.

He said more than 20 students in her class were victims too, because they learned the wrong lesson.
"They learned to use violence with more violence. Eye for an eye," Ballantyne said.
