A mother was rushed to a hospital after suffering from a heart attack, but she ended up giving birth to healthy triplets, according to hospital officials in Israel.

The incident began when a 31-year-old woman who was pregnant with triplets, was rushed to Kaplan hospital in Rehovot after suffering from a severe heart attack.

The doctors managed to save her life and safely deliver her three babies, all healthy, who came into the world after the couple tried to become pregnant for the past 12 years.

The father, Ahmed, said that during the 12 years of IVF procedures he had given up on ever being a father, but his wife insisted on trying again and again despite the risks involved.

Zaynab Alapiomi, 31, a special education teacher, and Ahmad, 31, of Dimona, decided to keep all embryos in order not to risk a miscarriage.

9 days ago, Zaynab began suffering from chest pains, blurred vision and inability to speak.

She was rushed by ambulance to Kaplan hospital, and a medical team began operating on her in the catheterization room.

"The procedure, which was unusual because the patient was carrying three babies and they still needed their mother's heart, consisted of implanting stents quickly, and we managed to stabilize the situation," Professor Kobi George said.

A team of two experts gynecologists, two anesthesiologists, three pediatricians, three midwives and two nurses, performed a successful Caesarean section to deliver two girls weighing 1.3 kilos (2.86 pounds) and a third girl weighing 1.6 kilos (3.52 pounds). The three babies were transferred to the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Now, eight days after the birth, Zaynab first saw her three daughters and burst into tears.

"We were so close to losing the babies, but today we give thanks to God, and to the medical staff of the delivery room and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Kaplan hospital, who saved my life and the lives of the three charming babies. I decided to name one baby Zohara, the name of the nurse who helped me during this entire ordeal," Zaynab said.

A Brighton Beach mother was horrified after she found numerous sex photos and adult videos on her account after a couple stole her phone, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

The Brooklyn woman said that a couple is using her cellphone to upload dozens of adult photos to her online storage account.

"It looked like they were getting off after taking away my phone," Victoria Brodsky, 39, said about the images, including a man and woman showing everything to the camera.

"I would love it if they were caught," she said.

The mother of two said that she lost her Samsung Galaxy S3 and wallet to pickpocketing during a street fair, and later found the obscene photographs uploaded to her Dropbox account, which is linked to her stolen phone.

A week later, the photos began to appear.

Dropbox is a site used to back up photos and other files.

Brodsky also said that she received an adult rated video of the couple participating in an act of rough sex.

A man was arrested and charged with murder after he allegedly slit the throat of his landlord because he made fun of him, according to police reports in New York.

Brooklyn Police said that a tenant accused of almost chopping off a man's head in a fit of rage because he felt that the 57-year-old victim had "teased" him for being poor, was arrested.

Police arrested Mohammed Siddiquee as he tried to flee the country. The suspect admitted to having committed the vicious murder of Mahuddin Mahmud.

"Yes, I did it," Mohammed Siddiquee, 27, said nervously when asked if he was guilty.

Siddiquee, 27, who lived in the basement of an apartment building in the property of Mahmud, was captured at Kennedy Airport at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, just before he was to board a flight to Kuwait, police said.

(Scroll down for video) A boy was left with a broken nose after he was punched by a police officer during questioning.

Some police officers pride themselves in their skills of being able to get a confession out of a suspect.

However, some officers were caught using violence and lies to get a confession out of an innocent person.

Police were investigating an incident where someone had broken a window at a nearby home.

13-year-old Jonathan Garcia and his friend, 14-year-old Giorgio Perez of Waukegan, Illinois, were taken into police custody and questioned.

The children were taken to the police station where they were questioned separately about their involvement in the incident. The whole ordeal lasted over 3 hours.

Garcia said that police tried to make him sign a paper confessing to the crime, but he refused to do so without a lawyer or his mother present.

At that point, the officer took his cell phone and hit the boy's face with it.

"He hit me with his phone. He held my neck and choked me," Garcia said.

The boy was treated at a hospital for the injuries caused by the officer.

While Garcia was being questioned, Perez was in another room. He was bullied and threatened with time in juvenile detention if he refused to confess to the crime he did not commit.

Now, the families of Garcia and Perez are suing the police department for mistreating the boys.

Authorities said that they are reviewing the complaint.

BYOD for the Global Enterprise

 
By: David Ross

BYOD is taking on a decidedly global flavor. People like their smartphones and computers at the office and at home, and that's a preference that doesn't stop at U.S. borders.

The business world would be hard pressed, too, to get along without it. Employers are finding it cost-effective and business friendly to allow workers to use their own smartphones, tablets and other devices in the office. Not only are employees already familiar with these devices, but it allows them to more easily combine their work and personal lives.

The BYOD phenomenon, again, isn't limited to the U.S. In a study encompassing eight countries in three regions, CISCO Internet Business Solutions Group has discovered that 89 percent of IT departments in enterprises and mid-sized companies enable BYOD in some manner. Company benefits including employee satisfaction, increased productivity and lower costs.

Although the U.S. and India are overall leaders in the adoption of BYOD, with 70 percent using mobile devices, Latin American and Asian countries are encouraging the wide use of BYOD, the Cisco IBSG report states. On the other hand, Europe tends to be more cautious. It also found that IT leaders expect the number of devices to increase from 2.3 percent per worker in 2012 to 2.8 in 2014. The solutions group attributes the growing number of devices to BYOD, with 42 percent of smartphones and 38 percent of laptops used in the workplace owned by employees.

A Smart and Secure Solution

As wide-growing as it is, the trend of BYOD brings up the issue of security. What if an outside party, such as a business competitor, gets a hold of sensitive inside information? What if a smartphone with business data is lost in a public area?

BlackBerry offers solutions to this issue. BlackBerry Balance technology provides a user-friendly method to help companies and employees use their devices without compromising each other. The technology is built into BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

A BlackBerry Balance user can switch from Personal Space to Work Space with a simple gesture. The Work Space is encrypted, secured and managed. It also keeps critical company data and apps protected. In addition, the employees benefit because they still can harness their desired mobile experiences.

In the study, Cisco IBSG lists a few ways security can be heightened. They include:

Devising a single policy platform
Securing and delivering the proper level of access to a corporate network
Creating device protection
Securing data transmission

BYOD is Hard to Ignore

About 60 percent of organizations don't have a BYOD policy or are just beginning to establish one, according to a study from Acronis and the Ponemon Institute.

Ben Gibson, chief marketing officer for Aruba Networks, told CSOonline.com that IT organizations and enterprises are playing catch-up in the BYOD trend.

Gibson also told the security and risk management online publisher that attitudes regarding a global approach might be affecting a company's launch into BYOD full bore because some countries have strict cultural policies about bringing personal devices to work. However, he stressed it will be harder for any business in the world to ignore BYOD because the consumerization of the IT trend will become prevalent.

As long as people continue to use their smartphones and tablets at home — and as long as people have employers — it will be increasingly difficult to keep the two separate.

Temperatures in the midwestern United States, have dropped to a record low, and for one woman, the sub-zero weather turned out to be a good thing.

Anne Spiess, 54, of Maplewood, Minnesota, may have been saved by the freezing temperatures.

On Tuesday morning, she got into a car accident and her Ford Ranger skidded on an overpass. It hit the guardrail, which broke, and she landed on a river that was completely frozen.

If the river would not have been frozen the 54-year-old may have drowned as her car dove head first into the river.

Police are still investigating the accident, but they believe that black ice may have been the cause of the accident.

(Scroll down for video) An official Colorado child safety hotline turned into a phone sex line.

The phone line operated by the Colorado State Patrol, continues to be listed by some agencies despite it now being a phone sex line.

The Colorado Children's Hospital and the Colorado Department of Transportation, which lists the child seat safety hotline as 1-877-LUV-TOTS, said they had no knowledge that the line is no longer in use, and that the number has since become a phone sex line.

The groups, which lists the number on its web pages, said they are investigating the matter.

The spokesperson of the Colorado State Patrol, Mike Baker, said that the number was established in 2002, to advise parents on child safety information, but an informal directive came to stop using the number in 2008, when they started having technical problems. Partners were told that the number will no longer be in use.

Baker said that the number became a phone sex line in 2012, and that the Colorado State Patrol has no control over the use of the number.

Black man jailed despite paying more than required for child support

Clifford Hall 
By: Sarah Weiss

(Scroll down for video) A black man is heartbroken after a judge sentenced him to jail for no reason, according to court proceedings in Texas.

Clifford Hall of Houston, said he is more than willing to pay child support for his 11-year-old son.

"I am his father, and it is my responsibility to care for him," Hall said.

Hall’s required child support payments were recently modified, but nobody bothered to notify him.

"Lately, my boss was withholding a lot more money some weeks and a lot less on others," Hall said.

"I did not want to go to jail so I paid the missing amounts from my own pocket," Hall added.

Hall quickly paid almost $3,000 in additional child support.

When Hall and his former partner were in the courtroom of Judge Lisa Millard last November, he owed nothing.

"The opposing counsel twice stated that everything is paid," Hall’s attorney said.

"The judge ended up sentencing him to six months in jail," the attorney added.

"When she sentenced me to Harris County Jail for 180 days, my mouth just dropped," Hall complained.

Judge Millard said that she found Hall in contempt because he left the courtroom.
