A flight attendant lost her job at Turkish Airlines, after executives of the company saw her sexy video shoot on YouTube.

31-year-old Zuhal Sengul of Turkey, infuriated her bosses when they saw her showing off curves in low cut blouses and corsets for a series of photo shoots.

Her photos also appeared in a popular magazine in Italy.

Officials at the airline said that the last straw was a video, which showed Sengul posing in a bikini.

“Simple pastel-colored makeup is preferred for staff working in the service sector,” a spokesperson for Turkish Airlines said.

Some believe that Sengul, who is a vegetarian activist and has a black belt in karate, may have been fired because her country is increasingly becoming more religious and the airline is seeking to align their policies with its customers.

Man wins $1,000 after suing landlords over cracked toilet seat (video)

By: Tanya Malhotra

(Scroll down for video) A man was upset when his landlords refused to change a cracked toilet seat.

The man sued and has been awarded almost $1,000 in compensation by a court in Australia.

In the lawsuit, which was handled by the Victorian Civil and Administrative ­Tribunal, Riley Nottingham stated that the cracked toilet seat cut his skin and drew blood.

Nottingham, 23, who is renting his apartment in the Kensington suburb of Melbourne, said that he was embarrassed to have people over because of the broken toilet seat.

Nottingham attempted to have the issue resolved by sending emails to the real estate agent who is responsible for the upkeep of the apartment.

However, when they did not respond, he filed his lawsuit. VCAT member Jessica Klingender ruled in his favor, noting that the problems “made the daily requirement of sitting on the toilet inconvenient, uncomfortable, potentially painful and unhygienic.”

The homeowners of Malaysia, Kim Wah Yong and Heng Lai Liu, were ordered to pay $933.57 to Nottingham.

Nottingham, who has since moved from the apartment, said that he cannot collect the debt because he cannot find an address for the landowners in Australia, and the real estate agents refuse to hand over their address, claiming privacy issues.

Police in the United Kingdom, have launched an investigation after 22 cats died of antifreeze.

Now, members of parliament (MPs) want to regulate the sale of antifreeze to prevent similar attacks against cats.

The royal society for the prevention of cruelty to animals (RSPCA), which is investigating the cat deaths, said it was unusual to have so many cases in one area.

Antifreeze contains ethylene glycol, which forms crystals within the animal, leading to kidney failure. Symptoms of poisoning include lethargy, vomiting and appearing drunk.

Police are looking for the suspect behind the poisonings, but so far, no arrests have been made.

A company was shut down after being accused of mixing food in a cement mixer, health officials in Denmark said.

The Food and Veterinary Administration found that Nordic Ingredients violated hygiene rules by producing foods in a cement mixer.

The food was delivered to nursing homes and public hospitals to patients who have difficulty swallowing food.

An official of the Food and Veterinary Administration, said that in addition to food production in a cement mixer, the facilities in which the company produced their foods were dirty.

“The cement mixer was cleaned between uses,” officials said. The company used an orange cement mixer just like construction companies.

There were layers of old food from previous productions, where bacteria and other microorganisms thrived. Up to a dozen public facilities receive food from Nordic Ingredients.

Many of them spent Thursday, destroying all food they received from the company. Other facilities that have received their food include Svendborg Hospital, Aalborg University Hospital, and Vendsyssel Hospital.

Many facilities say they were unaware that the company, which has now been closed, was not registered with the Ministry of Health.
