(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested after she carried out a vicious attack in order to ruin her friend’s life.

Mary Konye, 21, of Canning Town, East London, United Kingdom, is accused of dressing in a Muslim niqab as a disguise in order to throw acid in the face of her long time friend.

The victim, Naomi Oni, 21, worked as an associate at Victoria's Secret before the attack.

Prosecutor Gareth Patterson said that Oni left her job at the Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, East London, at about 11:30 p.m.

“A woman in a niqab with only her eyes visible, followed the victim home, walking a few steps behind her,” Patterson said.

When they were close to the victim’s home, Konye threw acid at the victim.

Oni had burns to her face, chest and other parts of her body. Her eyesight was also affected by the attack.

The victim spent a month in the hospital after the attack.

The Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that Konye and Oni had been friends from middle school, and had their share of ups and downs throughout their friendships.

Things took a turn for the worse when the victim called Konye "ugly."

That’s when the defendant allegedly wanted to show her friend “ugly” and burned her face.

Oregon mothers can now legally take their placenta home to eat after giving birth

Placenta 
By: John Roberts

Oregon lawmakers passed legislation allowing women to take home and eat their placenta after giving birth.

New mothers will now be able to leave hospitals with both their baby and their placenta, which protected the baby for 9 months.

This is all thanks to one of the strangest laws that came into effect this new year.

Some women believe that eating the placenta has nutritional and other values.

Others believe that the placenta has to get a proper burial.

Many cultures have long revered the organ that its main duty is to provide food and oxygen to the fetus.

Today, a growing number of women across the country eat the placenta as a nutritional supplement.

These new mothers, including January Jones, believe that eating the placenta in the form of pills, raw, or in a smoothie can help alleviate postpartum depression.

One study in 1954 done on 210 women claimed that eating placenta helps enlarge ones breasts and produces more breast milk.

The placenta contain nutrients and hormones that were passed from mother to child, but there are no clinical studies to support the benefit or harm of eating the placenta.

Chef explains why losing hand in accident helped his career

Eduardo Garcia 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) Losing a limb is devastating, but one chef said that losing his arm helps him in the kitchen.

Chef Eduardo Garcia, 32, of Portland, Oregon, lost his left hand in a freak hunting accident.

He could have had every excuse to stop working and wallow in self-pity. However, Garcia, is a true hero as he went back into the kitchen.

The chef was equipped with a bionic hand, which can grip 25 different ways and is controlled by his forearm.

Although he cannot work as fast as he used to, Garcia is learning to use the bionic hand for cooking. He said that there are definitely some advantages.

“I have superpowers. I can grab things out of an oven and not get burned, I don’t have to worry about cutting my fingers, and I am Rocking it!" Garcia said.

The incident began when Garcia was out hunting and found a dead bear. He pulled out his knife and began cutting it open.

Little did he know that there was a live wire under the bear, which shocked Garcia with 2,400 volts of electricity.

Garcia spent 48 days in an intensive care unit.

Just five days after leaving the hospital, he was back in the kitchen to cook a meal for a group of friends.

"It took a long time, but I did it," he said proudly.

Garcia admits that he had an embarrassing moment with his new arm. He was at a Costco store when he picked up a box of 100 limes with his bionic arm.

"I did not feel the claw losing control, and there were 100 limes all over the floor. I had to laugh. It was humiliating. I just had to get over it," Garcia said.

He realized the prosthesis was not designed to handle such heavy weights.

Fireworks seller jailed after blowing up his dog by wrapping it in firecrackers

The dog that was killed 
By: John Roberts

A man was arrested, charged and convicted of animal cruelty after wrapping his dog in firecrackers, according to court proceedings in Washington.

Now, the man who blew up his dog because he believed it was possessed by the devil, has been sentenced to 12 months in prison.

As we reported earlier, a man was arrested and charged after he decided to blow up his dog because the world is coming to an end, according to police reports in Washington.

Skamania County Police said that a father with children, who was preparing for the end, blew up a Labrador Retriever because the devil was inside the dog.

Christopher Dillingham, 45, allegedly attached a bomb to his dog and detonated it around 4:00 am, on Sunday, outside his home.
Skamania County Sheriff Dave Brown, who lives nearby, said the explosion woke him up.

"It sounded like a high-powered rifle going off outside my window," he said.
After a series of police calls, deputies were sent to the home of Dillingham. The dog’s remains were found scattered on the patio and Dillingham was arrested.

Dillingham told Skamania County deputies "the world is going to end due to a nuclear attack that was being prepared.”
Officers found a broken window and personal belongings outside the house when they arrived.

When asked why he was throwing objects out of his house and on the lawn, he said he believed that "the souls of demons were within the metal objects at his home.”

Dillingham said that his former girlfriend gave him the dog, Cabella, and "put the devil in it." He told the deputies that he made the explosive device in his home using black powder from fireworks.

Then, he allegedly tied it around the neck of the dog. He also allegedly told deputies he got behind a wall before activating the device, not wanting to get injured by debris.
The children were not injured.

Dillingham was charged with second-degree malicious mischief, reckless endangerment and possession of explosives, but not animal cruelty. The prosecutor said that the charge would have been used if the animal would have suffered, but the dog died on the spot. He is being held on bail of $500,000.

Squeaky Clean Business Tips for 2014

Employees at work 
By: Shifra Unger

A survey done by the U.S. government showed that quitting smoking, losing weight, and eating healthier are three of the most popular New Year's resolutions. Unfortunately, many of those resolutions are forgotten before the end of January. This year, why not make your resolution getting your business in shape? Starting out fresh for 2014 doesn't have to involve major changes or long-term planning. Instead, you can make those resolutions that will have the new year shaping up to be your best year ever for your business. Consider some of the following clean-up tasks:

Clear the Clutter – No one is at their productive best amongst chaos. Broken equipment, piles of papers, out-of-date magazines, and disorganized overstock all needs to go out the door. If you have a lot of large items, you may want to look for more information on renting a dumpster to haul away the clutter. Business News Daily recommends evaluating your work space and getting organized by filing, recycling, and cutting out the waste. Sprucing up the office with new artwork can also inspire in the months to come.

Computer Clean-up – Cleaning up your computer can have your business running at top speed. The Huffington Post reminds us of all the times we clicked cancel on our computer scans because we were busy. When was the last time you dumped your cookies or cleared your cache? Getting rid of old software, running full scans, and cleaning out computer files can restore speed and improve the operation of the much-needed office computer.

Cut Away Employee Dead Weight – Unfortunately, not all employees you hire will work out. Many businesses keep employees even when it is no longer beneficial to the business or the employee. Forbes reminds business owners and managers that it's okay to let employees go if the employee is no longer benefiting the business. If they aren't responsive to feedback, can't be relied upon to produce results, and are not team players, it's time to cut them lose and start the year with a team focused on success.

Website Make-Over – A fresh year can mean a fresh look for your website. Keeping your website looking good and feeling exciting can get lost in noise of jumping on the social media bandwagon, according to Mashable. Don't neglect your own business website, since this is where all those leads are going to hopefully end up.

Dust Off the Books – Facing the new year with your finances in order is an excellent feeling. Many of those little financial tasks can pile up if gone unchecked. Take the time to reconcile your bank and credit card statements. Look over petty cash spending for savings. Search for ways to save money, through actions such as lowering interest credit cards, or changing service providers for phone services and vending services.

Prepare for Tax Time - Solid Growth Accounting points out that tax time is right around the corner. Putting all your financial records in order makes this uncomfortable time a little bit easier. Whether you do your taxes yourself or have them prepared by tax accountant, having what you need organized and ready to go can make the road a lot smoother.

(Scroll down for video) Authorities have cracked down hard on former New York police officers and firefighters who cheated Social Security, according to police reports.

106 of former police officers and firefighters were being accused on Tuesday, of falsifying psychiatric problems in order to obtain federal disability benefits.

The suspects have been charged in a 205 count indictment for cheating between $30,000 and $50,000 a year on fabricated claims that they were incapacitated by severe psychiatric disorders.

Many said that their response to the attacks of September 11, 2001 were responsible for their psychiatric conditions.

Investigators said that the scam dated back more than two decades, with former officials and other workers claiming mental problems so severe that they could not work at all.

Among those arrested was a retired police officer, who has since worked helping union members, and the Detectives Endowment Association with disability claims in an office in Queens. He has been suspended without pay.
