A father was able to end a kidnapping after swinging into action and locating his stolen vehicle, according to police reports in Israel.

Three Palestinians carjacked an Israeli woman on a road near Ramallah, on Tuesday. They made off with the car while her 1-year-old daughter was in the back seat. The baby's father rushed to the area and later found his car abandoned near the Palestinian village of Dir Abzia. The child was unharmed.

The incident took place around 3:30 p.m., when the woman of Dolev, Mateh Binyamin Regional Council, was on her way home.

"I was driving home and my daughter was in the back seat. I was at an intersection near our city and a car with Israeli license plates crashed into me," she said.

"When I got out of the car to inspect the damage I realized that there were three Arab men inside the other vehicle. One of them came out to ask me if everything was fine, and as we were talking he just got into my car and drove off. I screamed, and I stopped a passing car to use the phone to call police and my husband,” the woman said.

The child's father immediately tried to get help.

"I went out and found one of my neighbors, who was armed, and got into his car and drove to the intersection. I knew that the first moments after an abduction are critical. As we were driving around I noticed my car on the side of the road,” the father said.

Several Israeli police officers were injured after Arab teens shot fireworks in their faces, according to police reports.

Following the incident, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, was closed to visitors after Arab youths shot fireworks at police outside the al-Aqsa Mosque.

Police said that the fireworks were shot from inside the mosque.

On Sunday, the Temple Mount was closed to Jews after a fight between Jews and Muslims erupted in the square.

According to police, the fight began after Muslims became angry that Jews were singing songs of Hanukkah.

Two Jews and two Muslims were arrested in that incident.

The sensitive area of the Temple Mount, sacred to Muslims and Jews, is controlled by the Muslim Waqf, but security is overseen by Israel.

Non-Muslims are allowed to visit, but all non-Muslim religious rituals are strictly prohibited.

The future hotel 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

People visiting the Borough Park section of Brooklyn, New York, will soon be able to lodge at a brand new luxury hotel.

Developers recently started building an ultra-modern hotel, which is scheduled to climb six floors high on 39th Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues. The hotel has not been named.

The $10 million, 70 lodge room hotel is scheduled to open in 2015.

"It's a growing area and there is a lot of demand for hotels," Kent Tse, the general manager of the hotel, said.

"We wanted to stand out from other hotels," he said. "Most of the hotels are very traditional looking, and we are going for a more modern look," he added.

Tse said the hotel, which is being designed by an architect based in Queens will cater to higher income guests.

Demand is increasing for hotel rooms in outlying areas because visitors are looking to be closer to their families, hotel consultant John Fox said, adding that a growing number of tourists in these pockets are feeding a market for cheaper accommodation.

Police are looking to arrest a gang of armed robbers who held up several Western Union shops in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, New York.

The gang of Brooklyn thugs found a faster way to transfer money into their purse, Brooklyn Police said.

Three armed men robbed four Western Union stores since early October, hitting twice in East Flatbush, where they made off with $10,000.

"It's very, very scary," Marie Narcisse, the owner of Western Union on Nostrand Avenue, said.

She was working inside the store office, protected by a half-inch thick plexiglass and a closed door, when two teenagers wandered in.

She had seen the two before, out on the street, and decided to tell them that the machines were out of service.

"I felt something is wrong with them," Narcisse said.

She was helping another customer when a third teenager, waving a black gun stormed in.

"I gave them the cash," Narcisse said. "My life is worth more than money," she said.

Police said that the thieves are still on the loose.

(Scroll down for video) A Jewish parent is outraged after a teacher who called him a neo-Nazi has been allowed to keep her job.

The teacher holds a job at the East Pennsboro School District in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.

The teacher Cydnee Cohen never met or spoke with Josh Barry, a concerned parent who dared to complain about a policy in the American History class of his eighth-grade daughter.

After Barry spoke with the principal, Stephen Andrejack, Cohen contacted a mutual friend on Facebook and said that she believed that Barry may be a "neo-Nazi."

When Barry's friend pushed back, saying that he is "the farthest thing" from a neo-Nazi, as he is a Jew, Cohen replied: "he is from the right-wing tea party!"

It is unclear how Cohen knew about Barry's complaint in the first place.

Barry, who is Jewish and is married to a woman who is half black, said he was outraged.

(Scroll down for video) Cheating on a lover in despicable, but cheating with his underage nephew is
downright nasty and criminal.

A woman betrayed her boyfriend when she slept with his nephew, who was staying with the family.

Caridad Munoz, 24, of Hialeah, Florida, was arrested after she entered the teen’s room and coerced him into having sex with her.

The 15-year-old, who was reportedly still a virgin, apparently agreed. He took out a condom from his wallet and they used it.

Munoz took the used condom and its wrapper, and put it in her purse after they were done.

According to the police report, Munoz also performed oral sex on the child.

"Since I was a virgin I felt intimidated by the defendant," the teen said.

Munoz had smoked marijuana before she asked him for sex, according to the teen.

During an investigation, Munoz admitted to having sex with the minor.

Munoz is now facing charges of sexual assault of a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

"He is a minor and he cannot legally consent to having sex with an adult. She is 24, and he is only 15, now she's in trouble for it,” Hialeah Police spokesperson Carl Zogby said.

If found guilty of the charges, Munoz could serve up to 10 years in prison and she might have to register as a sex offender.

Her bail was set at $32,000.

By: John Roberts

(Scroll down for video) In a bizarre incident, a man molested a woman while she slept naked next to her boyfriend.

Lee Ci-min, 25, of Kinmen, Taiwan, was visiting his girlfriend and spent the night with her.

During the night he decided to peek in the room of her roommate.

When he saw the woman sleeping naked, he went inside and molested her even though her ​​boyfriend was asleep beside her.

According to the police, Ci-min snuck into the unlocked room of his girlfriend’s roommate before dawn and sexually abused her.

The woman was awakened to Ci-min touching her privates.

The terrified woman woke up her boyfriend.

Ci-min quickly ran out of the room, while the victim’s boyfriend chased after him.

He caught up with Ci-min in the hallway while Ci-min was on the phone asking his girlfriend to open the door for him.

The victim’s boyfriend then called police.

Ci-min told police he was drunk when he entered the wrong room and got into bed.

He also said he thought the woman he touched was his girlfriend.

The victim however, told police that Ci-min was sober enough to call his girlfriend to open the door after being caught, which she claims proved that he was not very intoxicated and that he had deliberately managed to sneak into her room.

Ci-min was arrested on charges of breaking and entering, and for having sex without consent after police found the woman's bodily fluids on his hands.

Brides put in a lot of effort to perfect their wedding guest list.

They want to make sure to include close friends, family and loved ones.

One bride, Anna Bozard of Virginia, decided to invite her favorite football star to share in her special day.

Bozard has been a Peyton Manning fan all her life, so when the time came for her wedding, there was no doubt that she was inviting him, although she said that she knew there was only a 25 percent chance that he will actually respond.

She sent him an invitation, but she did not get her hopes up.

On Monday, five weeks after the card was due, and three weeks after the wedding, she received a written response from the Denver Broncos quarterback.

The excited bride opened the envelope to find that Manning had filled the RSVP card.

Although he checked the box that said “respectfully decline" he added "Best Wishes" and signed his name, along with his No. 18.

"I've always liked watching him and admired the wonderful person he was," Bozard said. “Getting the response totally sealed my thoughts about him. He is a person of good character and good heart," she said.

"I'm so excited that he took the time to do it, I'll put it in a nice frame," Bozard said.

(Scroll down for video) CCTV cameras captured the moment a mother killed her own baby by pushing her into the water together with her stroller.

Fabienne Kabou, 36, moved from Senegal to France, to be with her lover, and they had a baby girl.

However, the child was interfering with her mother’s love life. The mother decided to get rid of her baby named Adelaide.

Kabou told her boyfriend that she had given Adelaide to her mother in Senegal, who had agreed to take care of the child, according to police.

The truth was discovered the next day, when surveillance footage showed the moment Kabou pushed her 15-month old daughter onto the Berck-sur-Mer beach in France, and left the child, who was strapped into her stroller, to drown with the rising tide.

The child was discovered the next day by a fisherman.

Police used DNA to trace the carriage to its owner. After ten days of searching, Kabou was found and arrested at the house she shares with a 63-year-old man in Paris.

She has now been charged with first-degree murder, and is facing life in prison.

"She realizes what she has done. She expressed remorse, and she is not trying make excuses," her lawyer, Fabienne Roy-Nansion, said.

The case has sparked outrage and hundreds took to the streets in protest against the child cruelty.

Single man looking for love posts 'Lost Girlfriend' flyers

The poster 
By: Moses Gold

A man seemed to be fed up with picking up women at the bar or on the Internet.

The Australian man found a unique and creative way to get the word out that he is looking for love.

The man has decided to try his luck through hanging humorous posters.

The single man in Sydney, named Brendan, created a simple poster with the title "Lost Girlfriend."

The poster looked similar to a missing child or missing pet flyer.

The poster reads: “If this is you… or similar… please get in touch,” accompanied by an image of actress Scarlett Johansson.

He included his phone number on tear-off strips.

After a photo of the poster was shared on social media, Brendan was invited to a local radio show to explain his reasoning behind the poster.

Brendan explained that Sydney is experiencing a "women drought."

Although there are women out there, he believes that the women are too shy.

Brendan said that he received a few phone calls from the fliers, but it was mostly from guys who called to congratulate him for his idea or just for laughs.

The single man might have narrowed his chances for real love by posting a picture of the 29-year-old actress, Johansson, as not many women look like her.

Actress Johansson surely will not go out on a date with Brendan in the near future, as she is engaged to her boyfriend Romain Dauriac.

During his interview with the local radio station, Brendan clarified that he would be happy to chat or go on a date with any woman who called him.

(Scroll down for video) A Texas boy managed to pick up a steal of a deal, and walked away with a brand new car for just $1.

15-year-old Reginald Anokwuru got the best deal in the United States and probably in the world.

As he stood next to one of the new cars at a Houston car dealership the salesman approached the vehicle and hit it with a price tag of just $1.

Anokwuru immediately bought the car, and he was overwhelmed by the whole experience. He admitted that he felt like he had "just won the lottery" despite not having a driver's license yet.

Anokwuru’s new car was one of five cars that had their prices reduced to only $1. Extraordinarily, his mother managed to buy a new car for $1 as well.

Student killed when car crashes into her classroom moment after she changes seat with another student

Lacey Gruntorad

(Scroll down for video) A student was killed by a car while sitting at her desk in her classroom.

Lacey Gruntorad, 22, of Arizona, was looking forward to a rewarding career as a massage therapist.

Sadly, her life was cut short moments after she changed seats with another student.

According to police, Gruntorad hoped that by sitting in front of the class, the instructor would choose her to demonstrate massage therapy techniques during class.

However, her decision to change seats was fatal, as an 80-year-old woman, who was driving a car outside of the school, confused the gas pedal with the brake and crashed into the classroom.

Gruntorad suffered massive injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another student suffered injuries to the back and leg, while the instructor, Melinda Keeling, suffered a broken arm.

The student who switched seats with Gruntorad suffered only minor injuries to the elbow and knee.

The 80-year-old driver was devastated by the accident that she caused.

She was consumed by anguish and made suicidal statements immediately after the collision.

"She did not know how she was going to live after the parents lost a child because of her," police said.

She repeated several times that she was thinking of that poor young woman who was now gone because of her, according to police.

Police called the elderly woman’s daughter, who lives in Gilbert, to the scene to console the driver and to take her home to the retirement community where she lives.

The driver said she regretted driving. She told police she was taking a friend, who had suffered a stroke, shopping, and the two had stopped at a nearby bank so the friend could use the ATM.

Investigators decided not to charge the elderly woman, as there was not enough evidence to prove that the accident was reckless, negligent or intentional.

“They decided it would be unwise and unjustified to seek criminal charges,” Gilbert police Sergeant Bill Balafas said.

New bra helps women with weight loss as it detects emotional overeating

The Smart bra 
By: Eva Fett

Microsoft researchers came up with a new technology to help women lose weight.

They have developed a bra that warns women when they are overeating as a result of stress.

Many people reach for food when they are stressed. This bra is geared towards these people, and it helps them understand their moods and eating patterns.

"It’s mostly for women, who are emotional overeaters. The a bra is perfect for measuring EKG (electrocardiogram)," Mary Czerwinski, a cognitive psychologist and senior researcher in visualization and interaction at Microsoft, said.

The bra has special material and sensors to monitor a woman’s stress level.

From there, the woman is alerted to her mood, and can adjust to her behavior.

The sensors measure different things such as heart rate, respiration,
skin conductance and movement.

The data is then sent to the woman’s smartphone through an application. It will also be stored at the researchers’ computers.

The bra is still in its prototype phase and has been tested on a group of women.

One downside to the current model bra is that it has a short battery life. The battery runs out of juice after four hours.

The women had to keep recharging their bras during the experiment.

"We tried to create the same kind of thing for men's underwear, but it was too far away from the heart," Czerwinski said.

Wearable technology is one of those big areas that companies are exploring.

(Scroll down for video) A hospital worker is behind bars after he intentionally infected dozens of people with hepatitis C, according to court proceedings in New Hampshire.

The traveling medical technician has been sentenced to 39 years in prison for infecting dozens of patients in four states with hepatitis C through contaminated syringes.

David Kwiatkowski was a cardiac technologist in 18 hospitals in seven states before being hired at the Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire in 2011.

The 34-year-old admitted to stealing painkillers and replacing them with saline syringes, which were contaminated with blood.

Kwiatkowski had managed to move from one job to the other despite having been fired at least four times on charges of drug use and theft.

He pleaded guilty to 16 federal drug charges and was sentenced on Monday, in Concord.

46 people have been diagnosed with his strain of hepatitis C. Infected patients were in New Hampshire, Maryland, Kansas and Pennsylvania.

Defense lawyers argued that his mental and emotional problems, and his addiction to drugs and alcohol, clouded his judgment.
