(Scroll down for video) A teacher was fired from her position after she forced a little child to eat food from the garbage, education officials in Canada said.
The Children's Aid Society began investigating after a substitute teacher at a French Catholic school in Simcoe, Ontario, forced a student to eat food from a garbage can.

Renee Luise Oettershagen was teaching when an 8-year-old threw a banana into the garbage because it was rotten.

The teacher took the banana out of the trash, stripped it and took a piece for herself and forced the student to eat the rest. The teacher said that she was just trying to teach a lesson of good food values and to not waste food.

However, Jordan Stewart said that this was not the first time that the teacher has made her daughter eat food from the trash. She made her daughter eat food provided by the school after it was thrown in the trash because she did not like lettuce.

Oettershagen had been fired. The council said that the teacher's action did not meet their standards of professionalism.

(Scroll down for video) We’ve all seen people who look like their pets, but two New York City, New York artists took it upon themselves to spend a day, or 10, living the lives of hamsters.

The two performance artists, Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder, have built a life-size “human hamster wheel” out of wood and steel, and are dedicating 10 days to living, eating, and sleeping inside it.

The purpose of this project is to see if the pair can work together in a collaborative manner in order to accomplish everyday tasks. The artists must be mindful of each movement they make, as one false move puts them at risk of being thrown off the wheel.

The wheel is 60 feet in circumference and includes beds, chairs, desks, a fridge, a simple kitchen and a toilet. "We're living on a big wheel that is essentially a two-bedroom apartment," Schweder said.

This live performance, “In Orbit,” can be visited at The Boiler, the Pierogi gallery's performance space in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn through Sunday.
