(Scroll down for video) Doctors will now learn the correct way to enter a man’s prostate without being offensive and without the exam being too painful.

Is there a right and wrong way to do a butt exam? Apparently there is.

A new device will teach medical students how to do the exam the correct way.

The device works by having a robot’s prostarier connected to a computer screen with a virtual man named "Patrick," who is bent over a desk.

The device is designed to train budding physicians how to give a prostate exam, according to Dr. Benjamin Lok, the co-creator of the electronic device.

"The medical students talk to a virtual person and are able to practice their communication skills," Lok said.

The robot has sensors that can measure where the student is examining and the amount of pressure they are using.

This allows the system to provide a realistic encounter with the virtual patient including communication components and physical examinations.

The device even measures eye contact between the medical student and the virtual patient to help improve the bedside manners.

The robot’s prostarier is also equipped with force sensors that alert the student when he or she is pressing too hard.

The robot is currently used at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and at the University of Florida.

By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) A man was seen on video proposing to his wife in front of hundreds of people at a traffic light.

This was not a typical marriage proposal. The couple wanted to rekindle the love they once shared.

The man named Lin, 40, of Taiwan, had been married to his wife for the past 5 years, and they have three children.

Lin said that the passion he once shared with his wife was gone.

With three kids to care for, the husband and wife hardly ever had private time together, causing them to become distant from each other.

Rather than divorcing his wife and look for love elsewhere, the husband, who works as a registered nurse, decided to do something special for their relationship.

To recapture their love, Lin, together with his wife’s brother, who is a photographer, secretly planned a marriage proposal.

In this grand romantic gesture, Lin got down on one knee in the street below the Taipei Bridge, to propose to his wife for a second time.

Lin chose the Taipei Bridge for three reasons:

There are always a lot of people on the bridge.

The bridge is like a hill, so everyone waiting at the light is able to see what was happening at the bottom of the bridge.

It takes about one and a half minutes for the light to change from red to green, giving him enough time for a quick proposal in front of many people.

People were impressed by the husband’s romantic idea, and the video of the proposal quickly went viral.

California teacher feeds semen to his blindfolded students

Mark Berndt 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) A teacher was arrested and charged with child assault after feeding his students semen, according to court proceedings in California.

Now, the Los Angeles elementary school teacher agreed to plead no contest to sexual abuse charges involving more than 20 students.

Mark Berndt is accused of blindfolding children and spoon-feeding them biscuits mixed with his semen in what he called a tasting game.

Berndt plans to enter the legal equivalent of guilty pleas to 23 counts at a hearing on Friday.

Berndt will probably be sentenced to 25 years in prison.

The parents of the students filed a lawsuit against the Unified School District of Los Angeles, for failing to protect their children from Berndt. Settlements have cost tens of millions for the district.

The charges against Berndt came to light in 2009, when a photo technician at a pharmacy saw dozens of weird photos of children blindfolded and informed the authorities. Investigators, who launched an investigation against the teacher, found a plastic spoon in the school garbage can that contained traces of semen.

The parents settled claims with the school rather than put their children through the trauma of litigation.

Parents convicted of murder after their child dies because they prayed rather than seeking medical assistance

Herbert and Catherine Schaible 
By: David Ross

A couple is facing prison time after their son died because they decided to pray rather than to seek medical attention, according to court proceedings in Pennsylvania.

The Philadelphia couple was found guilty of third-degree murder of their son after pleading no contest.

The seven-month-old son of Herbert and Catherine Schaible died on April 18 from dehydration and pneumonia when his parents decided to pray for him rather than to seek medical attention.

At that time, Herbert and Catherine Schaible were on probation for 10 years for the death of their 2-year-old son in 2009. The terms of their probation required Herbert and Catherine Schaible to seek medical attention when one of their seven surviving children became ill.

The fundamentalist Christian couple faces sentencing next year.

"As a mother I cannot imagine doing such a thing," prosecutor Joanne Pescatore said.

About a dozen U.S. children die each year when parents turn to faith healing instead of medicine, usually for highly treatable problems, according to experts.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said that since medical attention was not given to the child they decided to file murder charges against the couple.

Their remaining children have been placed in foster care.
