Two Orthodox Jews who were leaving a Paris synagogue, were beaten in an unprovoked attack, police in France said.

The French Interior Minister said that the two men were attacked as they left the synagogue on Saturday.

Bernard Caseneuve ordered police across the country to increase security at Jewish houses of worship and other Jewish institutions. There were no immediate details on the Saturday night attack on the two men leaving the synagogue in Creteil, southeast of Paris.

French President Francois Hollande offered his sympathy to neighboring Belgium, and promised that the perpetrators in the Paris attack will be captured.

The thugs also grabbed her purse before fleeing from the scene. After being attacked, the woman returned to the school where staff members alerted rescue workers and the police.

A Park Slope English teacher was arrested on charges of burglary after allegedly trying to break into a home on his block, police in New York said.

Brooklyn Police said that 41-year-old Brent Adams, taught at the Poly Prep Country Day School.

Police said that Adams, who lives in the same block as the house he is accused of burglarizing, was charged with burglary and theft. After his arrest, he was put on indefinite administrative leave.

In August, students and staff at the Oregon City School District, were shocked when a teacher was arrested for stealing a student’s watch. Kevin Strasser, 42, of Oregon, who is a physical education teacher and head coach of the high school football team, was charged with robbery and official misconduct for the theft of the watch that belonged to one of his students.

Student Cameron Rogers, 18, said that he was upset when his watch disappeared during the last week of school. He worked months to save up to $600 dollars to buy the jewel-encrusted Ice Time watch for his birthday.

When the student told Strasser, who was his weightlifting teacher at the time about the disappearance of the watch, Strasser admitted that he saw the watch in the lost and found property box, but said he did not know who took it. Rogers thought he would never see the watch again. Until one day a friend of Rogers saw his watch in a local pawn shop. Police were able to identify Strasser as the suspect.

School officials issued a statement saying: "We are all shocked and saddened by the news. Anytime the actions of an educator betrays the trust of our students and community, we are heartbroken." A substitute teacher replaced Strasser pending the outcome of the investigation.

Strasser was booked into the Clackamas County Jail with bail set at $15,000.

(Scroll down for video) Three Jews including two Israelis died in a terror attack at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, Belgium, police said.

Witnesses said that a man approached the museum, opened fire, and fled before police arrived.

Another person was injured in the attack. Police launched an investigation into the attack, and have so far made one arrest.

Abraham H. Foxman, the ADL National Director, issued the following statement: “While violence against Jews in Belgium is extremely rare, the attack on the Brussels Jewish Museum, is another tragic reminder of the frightening atmosphere for Jews in parts of Europe.

“We know that while the overall number of recorded anti-Semitic attacks in parts of Europe where reliable statistics are available may have gone down in the past year, at the same time, the number of violent incidents against Jews has actually increased.

“The rise in Europe of openly anti-Semitic political parties, the proliferation of clearly anti-Semitic expressions on social media platforms and the disturbingly high levels of anti-Semitic attitudes in many places in Europe, contribute to a witches’ brew of hate in which those who are inclined to engage in violence against Jews, can find encouragement.

“The strong statement of support for the Jewish community expressed by Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rubio is reassuring at this most terrifying moment for the Jewish community of Brussels and sends a strong message to the people of Belgium that such acts have no place in society.

“We commend the reactions to the attack from Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur, Interior Minister Joelle Milquet and particularly Foreign Minister Didier Reynders, who is reported to have gone to the scene immediately after hearing about the attack.

“We stand in solidarity with the Belgian Jewish community and pledge our ongoing support to help ensure the safety of Belgian Jews.”

A university chapter has been shut down after students reported that they suffered abuse, including the pouring of hot sauce on their private parts, a police investigation in Tennessee uncovered.

Students in Knoxville, who hoped to become members of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, were abused for failing to answer questions.

They were hit with sticks and had hot sauce poured on their genitals. Some aspiring members, who had already been denied by the national headquarters of the fraternity, underwent hazing with no hope of becoming Alpha Phi Alpha members.

The strange circumstances that led to the shut down of the University of Tennessee chapter were detailed in a report from the Office of Judicial Affairs.

“New Students & Family Programs received a phone call from a concerned parent, who was worried that her son was being hazed. The parent was referred to Sorority and Fraternity Life staff. Sorority and Fraternity Life Staff received a call from a gentleman advising that his nephew was going through the process to become a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, and that he was concerned about changes in the nephew’s personality. A folder containing historical facts, a hand written letter, and pair of men‘s underwear was delivered to the Dean of Student’s Office. The letter advised that an element of the hazing involved pouring hot sauce on the young men‘s genitals and that the underwear was stained with hot sauce,” a document about the investigation revealed.

“Investigation into the allegations by University staff members resulted in admissions by students that they underwent the hazing. The students advised that the hazing included screaming for failing to answer questions correctly, paddling, and hot sauce being poured on genitals. The investigation further revealed that the hazing led to the need of seeking medical attention,” the document concluded.

Rolf Eden 
By: Anika Rao

This might just have been the world’s weirdest lawsuit.

Retired nightclub owner, Rolf Eden, sued a teenager for age discrimination because she would not sleep with him.

Eden, who has also worked as an actor and had been in about 30 videos, claimed that he slept with almost 3,000 women in his lifetime.

Seems like Eden is not used to being turned down for sex. However, when the teenager turned down his advances he filed the lawsuit.

The German businessman, who was 77 years old at the time, was rejected by Katharina Weiss, 19, and he did not take it well.

Weiss spent a night on the town with Eden, and then retired to his home, but she refused to sleep with Eden, saying he was too old for her.

Eden felt that he was “crushed” by the comment and decided to file the lawsuit against the teenager on the basis of age discrimination.

However, after a while, Eden decided not to pursue the case and dropped the lawsuit.

The F-Cups Cookies 
By: Devansh Dutt

(Scroll down for video) Have you always dreamed of having bigger breasts? Do you love sweets? Well now, you can combine the two and have bigger breasts.

A Japanese company has created cookies which cause the weight gain to go straight to the breasts rather than the stomach.

The makers of the “F-Cup Cookies” claim that women who eat them, are going to see an increase in breast size.

The cookies contain Pueraria Mirifica, an extract from a plant found in Thailand. Women are supposed to eat two cookies a day in order to see results.

The “F-Cup Cookies” come in two flavors, soy milk or pralines and chocolate. Each cookie contains 70 calories.

Nutrition expert Ian Marber, said that to date, there is no research to prove that products containing the Pueraria Mirifica extract change breast size.

However, some women are willing to take a chance and try to enlarge their breasts with the cookies rather than having a surgical procedure.
