Police are looking to arrest and charge several Arab men with assault related charges after they allegedly threw rocks at police officers, according to police reports in Israel.

Jerusalem Police said that Arab men threw rocks at Israeli police officer, who were patrolling the Temple Mount on Wednesday morning, injuring two police officers. The men then fled inside the al-Aqsa mosque.

Paramedics of Magen David Adom Jerusalem treated the men at the scene before transporting one police officer to a local hospital for further treatment.

This was not the first time that Arab men threw rocks at Israeli police officers on the Temple Mount.

As we reported earlier, thirty Arabs were arrested over the Rosh Hashanah holiday weekend for rioting on the Temple Mount, according to police reports.

Jerusalem police said that several riots erupted in and around the Temple Mount complex in Jerusalem over the Rosh Hashanah holiday weekend.

On Tuesday, police in Jerusalem issued a statement detailing additional security measures that were implemented to safeguard Jewish worshipers over Rosh Hashanah. After the statement was released, Islamic Sheikh Raed Salah urged his followers to prevent Jews from visiting the Temple Mount.

Salah was arrested by security forces on Tuesday afternoon, and police later obtained a court order prohibiting him from Jerusalem for several weeks.

Unrest in the Temple Mount began Wednesday morning. The police, who had prior intelligence that this would occur, deployed additional forces. The unrest spread around midday, when dozens of Arabs began throwing stones at security forces stationed in the area.

Rioting resumed Friday at noon after the end of the weekly religious service, which takes place at the Al-Aqsa mosque. Dozens of Arabs began throwing stones at security forces stationed in the area, and clashes occurred near the Mughrabi Gate.

In both conflicts, 30 Arabs were arrested for disorderly conduct and for assaulting police officers.
Jerusalem Police said that the security forces in the capital will remain on high alert through the Sukkot Holiday.

A man was arrested and charged with animal cruelty related charges after he was caught trying to eat a dog while it was still alive, according to court proceedings in Texas.

Now, the man has pleaded guilty to the charges.

Waco prosecutors said that a local man pleaded guilty to one count of cruelty to animals.

On Monday, 22-year-old Michael Terron Daniel pleaded guilty to the strange and disturbing incident that took place in June 2012.

Daniel was arrested after he went crazy and chased a dog, who was choked, beaten and partially consumed. The dog later died at the scene.

When authorities arrived at the home, they found Daniel covered with blood on his face and clothes.

Daniel said he was on a synthetic drug known as K-2, at that time. The K-2 drug is known to create a quick, intense high, followed by extreme paranoia and acute psychosis.

Before Daniel brutally attacked the dog, he allegedly chased a neighbor while barking and growling like a dog.

The case is now before a jury to decide his sentence.

(Scroll down for video) A man was horrified after a horse bit off his finger.

However, doctors managed to get his finger to grow back.

A south Florida doctor used a new procedure to actually regrow the finger.

Dr. Eugenio Rodriguez said that Paul Halpern, 33, arrived at his Delray Beach office with his finger in a zip lock bag.
The insurance company wanted the rest of the finger amputated. However, the doctor wanted to try a new procedure.

Halpern was feeding his prized horse a biscuit when the horse bit off his finger.
One of the other guys grabbed my finger out of the horse’s mouth. Then, I put it in a bag and went to the doctor, Halpern said.

On the way to the doctor, Halpern put his finger on ice, but it was not enough to save the limb.
"I really wanted to have his finger grow back, and fast," Dr. Eugenio Rodriguez said.

Using r tissue of a pig, Dr. Rodriguez made a template of Halpern’s finger and attached it to the remainder of his finger.
The result was amazing.

"I am very grateful. I think it's great. I think in the future there will be other uses for this type of procedure," Halpern said.

The doctor said it will take nine to twelve weeks for a full recovery.

A family might have to change the name of their beloved dog after it caused panic when a woman called the dog by its name.

A dog walker sparked a major search operation after calling out to her dog.

Police in Scotland were called after a woman was heard screaming for help from a wooded area. The people who heard the screams, feared that a woman had fallen into an old copper mine and that the woman was screaming for help.

Twenty officers, many of them with police dogs, along with a team of three mountain rescue workers, began scouring the hills and forests of Bridge of Allan, Stirlingshire, at 8:00 am on Monday.

During the search, officers spoke to many people who were in that area earlier that day in hopes that someone had seen or heard something that might help in the search. That is when they learned that a woman had been in the area with a dog ​​named Yelp.

A police spokesperson said that police had a search team in the hills accompanied by search dogs. They are very well-trained in this sort of thing. They were conducting systematic searches of all sections of the hill.

Officers arrived at 8:00 am and performed a thorough check of the area until 5:00 pm. When they found nothing, they spoke to people to get more information. One of the people they talked to was the dog walker, who was on the hill this morning with her dog named Yelp.

Officers were happy that no one was hurt and they had a good laugh when they learned that the long search was triggered because of a dog's name.

(Scroll down for video) A woman is dead and her husband was seriously injured after a propane torch exploded while she was enjoying herself at a family cookout, according to emergency workers in California.

Emergency workers responding to the scene said that a 41-year-old Fillmore woman has died from injuries sustained when a hand-held propane torch exploded in a backyard cookout during the weekend.

Authorities said Astrid Marmont was killed and her 38-year-old husband suffered serious injuries after the gas tank exploded and sent shrapnel flying all over.

Rick Nance was one of the many neighbors who went to the house after hearing cries for help.

"I was doing what I could for her, but there was not much to do, you know?" He said. "This situation, I've never heard of it. Hope I never see or hear something like this again," he said.

The Fillmore Fire Department chief, who responded to the scene, explained what happened.

"They lit the charcoal barbecue with the device. It was then placed on the side of the grill, right on the shelf. The container was heated by radiant heat from the actual grill itself. The tank exploded," the fire chief said.

“The gas inside the propane tank expanded and ultimately caused the explosion,” he said.

He said people should read the instructions on the package to avoid a similar event.

(Scroll down for video) A police commissioner has praised an officer, who refrained from using force when he was attacked while in uniform.

South African police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said that police officer Tiyiselani Shikwambana, 27, was driving in the city center around 4:30 pm with his wife.

When a car behind the officer flashed its light at him, the officer allowed the other car to pass. As the driver of the other car passed the officer another passenger threw a bottle at the uniformed officer.

Then, the men followed the officer for about 12 miles. The officer stopped at a gas station in Mankweng Johannesburg.
There, the three men got out of their car, smashed the windows of the police car and kicked in its doors.

The men were identified as Herdus van Jaarsveld, 27, and brothers Donald and Edwin Albreent, 21 and 24-years-old.
The officer entered the gas station where he gave his firearm to the cashier for safekeeping.

The three men, who are believed to have been drunk at the time, entered the store and assaulted the officer. They also damaged things at the gas station.
The men were arrested, and bail was set at only R500 (about $50).

The officer was praised by his supervisors. "Shikwambana was in a difficult position and had the right to protect himself, but he made a calculated decision to ensure the safety of those around him," Mulaudzi said.

Man arrested after alerting TD bank teller to customer with gun

(Scroll down for video) A man was concerned when he saw another customer carrying a gun in a bank, so he alerted the bank teller.

But when police arrived they did not arrest the man who had the gun, but rather the man who ratted him out.

Robert Gursky, 50, of Connecticut, thought he was doing the right thing by telling staff at a Glastonbury, TD Bank, that a man was carrying a gun in the bank.

Gursky whispered to the bank teller "gun" while making motions that a man in line had a gun. The teller and other bank staff became confused as to what he was trying to tell them and activated the bank's robbery alarm.

After police arrived at the scene, they found that the man who had the gun was in law enforcement, he had the gun legally and that their was no misconduct.

Gursky was interviewed by police and then arrested on a breach of the peace charge.
People in Connecticut can legally carry a weapon without concealing it.

"We are not a concealed carry state, but you can't carry in a manner that causes alarm to the public, so it is a fine line finding balance. That is why many people choose to carry concealed," Glastonbury Police spokesperson Kevin Szydlo said.

Police also said that if you find yourself in a situation where you see a man with a gun tucked into his shirt, do not confront him. Walk out of the bank and call 911 so officers can handle the situation without causing alarm.

How embarrassing, a woman went into labor while she was teaching.

Within 20 minutes she gave birth in a classroom.

The teacher in England, gave birth in a classroom just one day before she was to begin maternity leave, prompting her colleagues to act as midwives.

Diane Krish-Veeramany, 30, went into labor at 39 weeks, just as the school bell rang in the morning.

After only 20 minutes of contractions, she gave birth on a chair in a classroom. Three teaching assistants helped her by taking directions from paramedics over the phone.

Krish-Veeramany was teaching at the Manford Primary School in Chigwell, England, when she went into labor. "Luckily, my husband was able to reach the school before I gave birth," Krish-Veeramany said.
She gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Jonah.

“One person who was on the phone with my husband, one was on the phone with my hospital and the other with paramedics. It all happened very fast," she said.

Krish-Veeramany was taken to Queen's Hospital in Romford where both mother and baby are doing fine.
"We joke that the baby was late for school since he was born after the bell rang," she said.

The classroom where Krish-Veeramany gave birth was named in his honor, Jonah’s room.
Krish-Veeramany, also has an 18-month-year-old, named Noah, with her husband Vijaye Krish-Veeramany, who is 31.

U.S. soldier with wife post video of themselves having sex with dogs

Ruben and Amber Fox  
By: John Roberts

Some people apparently see nothing wrong with having sex with animals.

Two people actually upload videos and photos of their encounter on the internet.

This time, it was not some lonely guy, who was unable to find a woman and therefore went for the animal, but rather a respected married couple in North Carolina.

The Fort Bragg soldier and his young wife have been accused of making pornographic videos with dogs and then posting them online.
Ruben and Amber Fox, both 23, were arrested in Raeford, a town south of the U.S. Army base in North Carolina.

Both were charged with multiple counts of crimes against nature involving bestiality, dissemination of obscene material and conspiracy. The wife was also charged with soliciting a crime against nature.

Raeford police officers seized two dogs and three cats from their home and placed the animals in a local shelter.
A spokesperson for Fort Bragg confirmed that Ruben Fox is assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division.

The computer crime unit of the Fairfax County police department in Virginia approached law enforcement in Raeford two weeks ago after discovering online videos showing explicit sexual acts with dogs.
Bail for the couple was set at $15,000 each.

Man assaults girlfriend after catching her in bed with her female cousin

Terry Jenkins 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A man attacked his girlfriend when he found her being intimate in bed with another woman.

While most men would not mind to watch girl on girl action, one man’s jealousy got him arrested.

Terry Jenkins, 25, of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, was arrested after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend after having a threesome with her and her cousin.

According to the Sheriff's Office of Horry County, the 31-year-old victim and her cousin were engaged in a threesome with Jenkins.

However, when Jenkins was done he left the room. When he returned, he saw that the two women had continued without him and were engaged in oral sex on each other.

He became angry and dragged his girlfriend out of bed by the hair and then repeatedly hit her in the head and face.
When deputies arrived on the scene, Jenkins admitted he was angry that the women continued without him, but denied assaulting his girlfriend.

Although Jenkins also had scratch marks on his face, police determined that he was the primary aggressor in the confrontation.
He was imprisoned in the Horry County jail, and was charged with assault and domestic violence.

When he was released from jail, Jenkins did the unthinkable. He returned to his residence and continued to assault his girlfriend.

The victim told officers she was in the bathroom when Jenkins came in and demanded she give him the debit card. When the victim refused, he threw her to the floor and hit her in the chest.

Jenkins then grabbed the woman's cell phone and her car keys. He then fled the scene in her car.
Officers were able to locate Jenkins in the victim's car and he was arrested again.
He was taken back to jail and charged with assault, domestic violence and use of a vehicle without consent.

New service allows you to rent a nerd by the hour

Hourly Nerd.com founders 
By: Moses Gold

Until recently, hiring a professional geek was quite expensive, but now, a company is allowing people to rent nerds by the hour.

If you own a so-called mom and pop business and always wanted the luxury of having a consultant on the payroll in order to do tasks such as accounting, to build a mobile media strategy and social accounts, there is a new start-up just for you.

Hourly Nerd.com is an online marketplace that offers MBA students for rent to businesses across the country.
Rates vary from just $10 to $50 an hour.

People with more professional resumes can charge up to $75 to $100 per hour.
The company is the creation of three Harvard Business School students all under 30-years-old.

Rob Biederman, 26, Peter Maglathlin, 27, and Patrick Petitti, 29, said that the idea was born out of necessity.
An MBA can be expensive and students don’t have a lot of time to devote for work.

Meanwhile, small business owners are generally at an interesting turning point in the U.S.

Most mom and pops have reduced costs since the recession to the bare bones. Many have no plans of hiring a traditional consultant.

Main Street needs to expand their business organically again but cannot afford hiring new employees. They certainly cannot afford the help of a consulting firm, accounting or investment banking.

That's where Hourly Nerd.com comes to the rescue.
