(Scroll down for video) For the first time since the launch of Operation Brother’s Keeper, the Israeli Army used intelligent dogs in an attempt to sniff out the three kidnapped yeshiva students, who were abducted about two weeks ago.

Dozens of dogs were seen on video going from house to house, between gardens and courtyards, in the hope of finding signs of the kidnapped teens.

Throughout the operation, the military has focused on two objectives. One objective is to root out Hamas in the West Bank, and the other is to locate the kidnapped teens.

Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said that the Army is making all efforts to bring back the missing teens, and will continue to work night and day until the mission is complete.

Five Palestinian who are imprisoned in Israel, were charged with plotting to kidnap Israeli soldiers, Israel Hayom reported.

The prisoners were charged on Monday, for plotting the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers in order to use them as bargaining chips to secure the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.

The five were charged in the Be’er Sheva District Court on multiple counts of conspiracy, including conspiracy to commit murder, and were accused of belonging to a terrorist group, aiding and abetting an enemy agent and contacting a foreign agent.

Haytham Salahiah, a security prisoner serving two consecutive life sentences, began conspiring with four other prisoners to kidnap Israeli soldiers. Salahiah, named in the indictment as the brain of the plot, used media reports to gather information and plan the kidnapping, described in great detail in notebooks found in his cell.

Evidence suggested that the kidnapping was to be funded by Hamas. Had the plan succeeded, the kidnapped soldiers would be transferred to the Gaza Strip immediately.

The five planned to demand the release of 477 Palestinian security prisoners in exchange for the return of any Israeli.

A popular doctor is being accused of sexual misconduct after allegedly asking an elderly hospital patient for oral sex, according to a tribunal in Australia.

The doctor of Victoria, groped and requested oral sex from the 68-year-old woman, who was admitted to the hospital for depression and suicidal thoughts.

John Barry Myers faces charges of professional misconduct brought before the State Administrative Tribunal by the Medical Board of Australia. Dr. Myers, who was suspended from practicing medicine, worked at the Geraldton Regional Hospital.

During that time, he allegedly fondled the chest and the lower part of the woman, held her, made progress for oral sex and went into her room at night to kiss her on the cheek. Dr. Myers had four previous adverse findings against him by the Medical Board of Victoria and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Dr. Myers represented himself at the hearing this week. He was not allowed to ask questions directly, while the patient gave evidence by video link, because his voice was too painful for her. The woman said she even asked the nurses if Dr. Myers was really a doctor because she could not believe how he behaved.

Dr. Myers denied the allegations.

Palestinian Authority pays terrorists up to $3,500 per month with a one time grant of up to $25,000

A new report revealed how the Palestinian Authority is supporting terrorists, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said on Wednesday, that he will work to stop Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, from continuing the policy of paying monthly salaries to convicted terrorists jailed in Israeli prisons.

"Did you murder Jews? Have you abducted children? Get up to 12,000 shekels a month from Abu Mazen!” Bennett wrote on his Facebook page. “Meet Abu Mazen's preferred employees, murderers, terrorists and child abductors. We (Israel) have preferred status for gas station attendants, while Abu Mazen gives it to those who pour fuel on the fires of death and destruction.”

A report presented to the Israeli Government on the subject reveals that this salary system is expensive and complex, funded in part by Western countries donating to the Palestinian Authority.

The PA gives generous monthly salaries and large release grants to incarcerated terrorists. These convicted murderers, 78 of whom have already been released from prison by Israel, are receiving monthly salaries of up $3,500 and grants of up to $25,000.

In this way, the PA is giving a strong financial incentive to terrorism, the report states. The report further states that publicly rewarding convicted murderers gives an official stamp of approval to terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians. It is a highly persuasive form of incitement to violence and terrorism, and encourages further terrorist attacks.

These salaries paid out by the PA are actually prescribed by PA law. “The Palestinian Prisoners' Law” stipulates that every Palestinian inmate in an Israeli prison who is convicted of a terrorism-related offense receives a monthly salary from the beginning of his imprisonment and a series of additional benefits offered to convicted terrorists upon their release.

These salaries are calculated as a function of the number of years spent in prison. This means in effect that the terrorists who carried out the most horrific attacks receive the highest salaries.

The minimal wage paid to serving prisoners stands at 1,400 shekels ($400) upon imprisonment. This base sum increases gradually, up to a maximum of 12,000 shekels ($3,500) based on the length of imprisonment. In addition to that salary, the PA covers the living expenses of the prisoners' families. Every released security prisoner who was in prison in Israel for at least one year, is given a onetime grant upon release ranging from the sum of $1,500 for those who served between 1 to 3 years and up to $25,000 for prisoners of 30 years and more. Those who were in Israeli prisons for criminal offences do not receive any grants.

It should be noted that the sums being bestowed upon these terrorists are large, in particular in contrast to the average monthly salaries of Palestinian workers in the PA controlled areas, which stands at $641 - according to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics.

Terrorists are further given administrative grades in the PA civil service or military rank, based on the number of years spent in jail. For example, those who served at least 25 years in prison are awarded the equivalent rank of Major-General in the security forces or of a Deputy Minister in the PA, both of which earn monthly wages of nearly $4,000. Terrorists who were incarcerated between 15 to 25 years receive over $2,800 every month. Released prisoners are also given priority over other candidates for official positions. In addition, prisoners who spent between 5 to 10 years in prison receive severance payments in case no vacancy is found for them.

Among those who receive the maximum amount is the most veteran prisoner, Issa Abed Rabbo, who shot to death two young Hebrew University students hiking near Bethlehem in 1984. In addition to the grant and salary, the PA also offered to cover the expenses of his wedding. Abu-Musa Atia, who used an ax to murder Isaac Rotenberg, a Holocaust survivor who had escaped from the Sobibor death camp, is also on the payroll. So is Yusef Hazaa who murdered two Israeli teachers, one of them a 19-year-old volunteer. Sualha Husseini and Almajed Mahmed who carried out a stabbing attack on a crowded bus, killing 24-year-old Baruch Heizler and wounding three young women, receive monthly salaries from the PA for their heinous actions.

This expensive pay system is funded in part by Western donor countries. The PA is highly dependent on foreign aid. The international community donates primarily for the proper management of PA institutions and for promoting peaceful coexistence with Israel. However, in 2012 the PA found the funds and paid over $75 million to terrorists in Israeli prisons and $78 million to the families of deceased terrorists, including suicide bombers. Together, these amounts account for over 16% of the annual foreign donations and grants to the PA budget. This figure reflects only official transfers by the Ministry of Prisoners. It does not include any additional transfers from other bodies, such as the Ministry for Welfare and PA official funds. These payments account for approximately 5% of the Palestinian Authority's total budget. Some countries have already begun to reconsider their funding of the PA because of similar findings. Since 2011, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has been reporting on the PA's practice of rewarding terrorists and murderers with high salaries. As a result, the PA has been criticized internationally for paying these salaries. Recently, several members of the U.S. Congress suggested that the U.S. either cancel its aid to the PA entirely until it ends this practice or that the U.S. deduct from its aid an amount equaling the amount of money the PA spends on terrorist salaries. Norway and Britain have also demanded explanations regarding these payments.

The Palestinians relate to these payments as salaries, not as welfare or social aid. Qadura Fares, a former PA minister and current Chairman of the Prisoners' Club stated on PA TV: "What is spent on the prisoners is exactly what is spent on me and you. These are salaries. Therefore, when the salaries are paid to those working in government offices and institutions, they will also be paid to the prisoners."

Hamas terrorsit Ziyad Awad, who was released in the Shalit deal and arrested recently for the murderer of Baruch Mizrahi on Passover eve, received a salary from the Palestinian Authority during his first imprisonment, was released and received a freed terrorist's salary.

Minister Bennet said: "Now his conditions will again be improved in Abu Mazen's 'preferred employment' scheme – after all, he murdered a Jew and has returned to prison. Amazing. The system is simple,” Bennett explained. “With one hand, Abu Mazen 'condemns' the abduction, of course, and with the other, he hands out cash for terrorism, which encourages it.”

Taglit Birthright Israel celebrated this week, after bringing its 400,000th student to Israel, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

Taglit Birthright Israel has passed a significant milestone with the designation of the program’s 400,000th participant, Ryan Hunter, 20, a student from Syosset, New York.

By reaching this milestone, Taglit Birthright Israel turns a corner and has now provided a free heritage trip to half of the young Jewish adults who are eligible every year.

Hunter plays Division 1 Lacrosse at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, and is the group captain for the “Amazing Israel Lacrosse” Taglit Birthright Israel special interest group tour.

He and approximately 40 other top college athletes will travel through Israel experiencing the full 10-day program. During the visit, Hunter and the other athletes will also teach Lacrosse to young Israeli athletes, while training and competing in exhibition games against the Israel men's and women's national teams.

Hunter, a communications student, was inspired to apply for Birthright Israel when his older sister returned from her trip with a restored faith in Judaism.

“Ryan was chosen for this honor because he embodies the Taglit Birthright Israel applicant,” said Taglit Birthright Israel CEO Gidi Mark. “He represents the best and brightest of the future of the Jewish people, and is someone who might not have chosen to connect with Israel had it not been for Taglit Birthright Israel.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu personally greeted Hunter at a Birthright Israel Mega Event, which brought together 3,200 participants from 60 bus tours for an evening of culture. The celebration of Zionism included comments from Netanyahu, and leading philanthropists, Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson.

Taglit Birthright Israel also welcomed its 70,000th Israeli participant to the Mifgash (“Encounter”) program, in which 8-10 Israeli students and soldiers join the tour buses to establish life-long global friendships with Jewish peers.

"We have reached a remarkable milestone in our ongoing mission for worldwide Jewish continuity,” said Gidi Mark. “Our 400,000 participants represent a strong and active bond between Israel and the Diaspora, and Taglit Birthright Israel will continue to provide hundreds of thousands of young Jews with an opportunity to explore Israel, the heart of Jewish culture, history and its people, so that they may rediscover and create a personal bond with their faith and global community.”

Taglit Birthright Israel offers a free, 10-day trip to Israel for Jewish adults between the ages of 18 to 26. The trip aims to strengthen each participant’s identity as a Jew, to build an understanding, friendship and lasting bond with the land and people of Israel, and to reinforce the solidarity of the Jewish people worldwide.

Taglit Birthright Israel has sent 400,000 young Jewish adults to Israel from more than 66 countries and from all 50 U.S. states, including students from nearly 1,000 North American college campuses.

Attendees are immersed in an active educational experience, which includes three main areas, the narratives of the Jewish people, contemporary Israel, and the formative values of Judaism. The trip includes visits to Jewish historical sites, history museums, Holocaust remembrance sites, the Western Wall, arts and culture programs as well as touring, hiking, discussions, social events, camel and jeep rides in the desert, and more.

The Taglit-Birthright Israel program is sponsored by partnerships with thousands of individual donors and private philanthropists, Jewish communities around the world through the Jewish Federations of North America, Keren Hayesod, the Jewish Agency of Israel as well as the Government of Israel.

"It is our hope that participants, like Ryan, see the Birthright Israel experience as a springboard for a life-long connection with their heritage,” added Mark.

A group of Russian female police officers were seen wearing tight fitting tops and mini skirts.

The photo of the blond officers in mini skirts went viral on social media.

Now, the Russian government is taking action against the shrinking hemlines. They have imposed a ban on any kind of changes in police uniforms.

The order was issued by the Russian Ministry of the Interior, which is now planning to launch a crackdown to combat short skirts for its female police officers after it became a popular trend.

The ministry revealed that the police officers were making several changes to their uniforms. While policewomen shorten the skirts, the male officers have shortened their sleeves to be more trendy.

The government has issued a warning that any officer who changes the original uniform, will be punished.

The Interior decree now requires all female police officers to use knee-length skirt and shoes that are issued by the department, instead of high heels. Those in violation will be punished. Furthermore, officers were banned from wearing headphones or earphones while on duty or face punishment.

Good-looking man’s face destroyed by injecting household products to stay young looking

Hugo Hernandez Garcia before and after 
By: Aarav Sen

(Scroll down for video) A man went from a good-looking and popular person to looking like a monster and being depressed.

Hugo Hernandez Garcia of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, was a good-looking man, but he wanted to look perfect.

In his quest for perfection, Garcia did some very strange things to his face. He injected household products into his face, believing that it was a low-cost substitute for collagen.

The results were pretty horrible and unfortunately, irreversible. He performed many surgeries using household products to make his skin look flawless.

During one of these surgeries he injected things such as baby oil in the face because he thought it was going to have the same effect as collagen.

Sounds like a bad idea even in theory, but Hugo was blinded by his addiction to enhance his beauty. A while after the procedure, his skin turned red and blotchy, and various parts of his face had swollen abnormally.

His handsome face is now more monstrous looking, lacking recognizable features. Not only were the eyes of Hugo ruined, but his health was affected quite badly as well.

While his condition is not painful, he now takes about 15 types of medications daily. He has to be on a special diet, drink plenty of water and stay away from alcohol.

He basically needs to live a lifestyle that does not involve noise or stress. He has seen several doctors in the hope that the damage can be fixed, but nothing has worked so far.

“It's a mistake I made and I am paying the price,” Hugo said. He wants people to learn from his mistake. He tells people to consult with appropriate medical experts before deciding to do any cosmetic surgery.

12-year-old boy missing for 12 days found alive in basement of his home

Charlie Bothuell

(Scroll down for video) Police and the FBI are left with many questions after they have been searching for a young boy for almost 2 weeks.

12-year-old Charlie Bothuell of Michigan, was discovered in the basement of his family's townhouse in Detroit.

Dozens of police officers along with a K9 unit, have searched the home after they found the boy’s blood in his home.

Now, the boy was found behind a makeshift wall in the basement of their home with food and a place to sleep. “Bothuell was very happy to see us,” Police Chief James Craig said.

Craig said that there is no way the boy could have made the wall himself. The boy allegedly told police that his stepmother provided him food while in the basement.

Therefore, suspicions fell on the boy’s father and stepmother. The couple, who home school the boy, are accused of child abuse for their strict discipline, which allegedly included hitting the boy with a pipe.

Police suspect that the boy’s blood they found in his room was the result of his parents hitting him. The parents deny the allegations.

The boy is recovering at the hospital with his biological mother at his side.

(Scroll down for video) A mother of five young children was arrested after she intentionally hurt her baby.

23-year-old Lasasha Allen of Louisiana, was charged with attempted murder after she threw her baby out from a moving car.

The Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office was called to the Franklin Medical Center in Winnsboro, around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, to investigate the incident.

The emergency room staff realized that the 20-month-old girl, suffered severe injuries. The mother was taken to the sheriff's office questioning.

At first, she claimed it was a mistake and that the child fell out of an open window. However, upon further integration, the mother finally revealed the true motive of her horrific act.

According to sheriff investigators, Allen had contacted the child's father on Saturday, and told him that the child had fallen from a car window while driving, and had been wounded. The intention, according to the Sheriff Cobb, was to get a reaction of the father.

“The next day, when she got no response from him, she decided to turn that dream into reality,” Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb said.

Allen placed the 20 month old in the passenger seat, accompanied by her 7-year-old child, who was placed in the back seat, and drove to a rural area near a curved road.

According to investigators, Allen then drove at a speed of up to 45 miles per hour, opened the door and intentionally causing the baby to fall out.

According to the report, Allen said that she intended to inflict minor injuries to the child so not to be caught in a lie by the child's father.

She waited for a period of time before taking the injured boy to the emergency room. The baby is in stable condition awaiting surgery.

Allen has been charged with attempted murder in the second-degree. Her bond was set at $750,000. Allen’s five children have been taken from her and placed in the custody of Children Services.

Those incidents included bathroom bandits using paper towels to clog toilets and an individual placing feces in the hallway outside the bathroom. The EPA was advised that the poop in the hallway at work was a risk to health and safety.

The behavior was categorized as highly dangerous. “Management is taking this situation very seriously, and will take the necessary actions to identify and prosecute these people,” Cantor wrote in the email.

Smith had faced misdemeanor charges, but since she destroyed the evidence her charges were bumped up to felonies. Smith has been released on bail, but was suspended from her job as an employee for a judge.
