spencerNEW YORK - Officials tried to tamp down New Yorkers’ fears Friday after a doctor was diagnosed with Ebola in a city where millions of people squeeze into crowded subways, buses and elevators every day.

“I want to repeat what I said last night: There is no cause for alarm,” by the doctor’s diagnosis Thursday, said Mayor Bill de Blasio, even as officials described Dr. Craig Spencer (picture) riding the subway, taking a cab and bowling since returning to New York from Guinea a week ago.

“New Yorkers who have not been exposed to an infected person’s bodily fluids are simply not at risk.”

De Blasio said New Yorkers should call 911 or go to an emergency room if they have possible Ebola symptoms and were in affected countries in the last 21 days.  More

skelRomania - A Romanian school has been told it can carry on using the skeleton of a former headmaster to teach anatomy.

Alexandru Grigore Popescu worked at the rural Puchenii Mosneni elementary school in south-eastern Romania’s Prahova county for 50 years until his death.

He said in his will that he had always wanted to have a skeleton in the class for biology lessons. But the skeleton had been confiscated when health and safety officials discovered it was the real thing and insisted on having it checked to see if it was hygienic.

But now after being specially treated and put in a glass case, the skeleton has now been returned to the school.  More

IMG_0174.JPGNew York – A hatchet-swinging psycho with Islamic militant leanings turned a busy Queens street corner into a scene of bloody chaos Thursday, chopping a rookie cop in the back of the head and slicing a second officer on the arm before two other officers shot him dead.

In opening fire on the madman, cops accidentally wounded a bystander, ­authorities said.

Officer Kenneth Healey, 25, had just four months on the job when Zale Thompson, 32, of Queens — a “scholarly” but “weird” ­recent convert to Islam — fractured the back of the cop’s skull with one swing of a blue-handled hatchet at about 2 p.m. in Jamaica.

A 29-year-old woman walking a half-block away was struck in the back by a stray police bullet and was in stable condition, according to police sources.  More

VickersCanada – House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers was hailed across Canada as the hero who brought down a deranged gunman before he could spill any more innocent blood.

While Vickers’ position is often seen as a ceremonial gig, he has the very real job of protecting Canada’s lawmakers — which he carried out in heroic fashion on Wednesday.

The 58-year-old former Mountie was best known for marching a massive gold mace into the House Commons before each session. The mace is a symbol of the queen of England’s authority over Canada.  More

remainsConnecticut – A little spring cleaning led to a big mystery for a Hartford woman, who found someone’s cremated remains in a closet, Fox CT reports. Now, she’s on a mission to reunite the 10-year-old remains with whichever family they might belong to.

“Oh my god, what am I going to do with this?” That was Carmen Zayas’ first reaction when she spotted a black box while clearing out a closet inside an old apartment converted to office space back in August.

“It was in the corner. I reached for it, I took it down and I placed it on this cabinet,” said Zayas.

The box was sealed shut, but a label said that remains (or “cremains,” as they’re often called) of a woman named Tyeshia Flowers were inside.  More

beggersChina – Beggars in China are stooping to new lows in order to gain sympathy (and money) from impressionable passers-by.

Horrific pictures show deliberately mutilated camels that are being used to beg for donations. Apparently, the trick has worked wonders so far – the beggars’ collections have increased because people are quite sympathetic and end up donating generously to help the poor animals.

The latest case was discovered in Fuzhou city, China’s Fujian Province, where two men in ragged clothes were spotted kneeling down and begging, while holding the rains of a camel.

When the police approached them, they found that the camel had no hooves, and the wounds indicated that they had been deliberately cut off.  More

Autopsy finds Michael Brown shot at close range, not running from cop

dontMissouri – The 18-year-old black man whose fatal shooting by a white police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson in August touched off weeks of racially-charged rioting, had marijuana in his system, was initially shot at close range and does not appear to have been killed while running away, according to experts who reviewed the official autopsy and toxicology report.

The documents, obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and analyzed by two experts not directly involved in the case, appears to contradict witness accounts that claimed Brown was running away from Police Officer Darren Wilson, 28, when he was killed on Aug. 9.

The new information comes on the heels of reports that Wilson told authorities Brown had reached inside Wilson’s police SUV and struggled for his gun, resulting in Wilson firing twice, hitting Brown once in the hand. Moments later and outside of the vehicle, Wilson fired the fatal bullets that sparked a national controversy.  More

NYC Board of Elections: 850 people officially over 164 years old

voteNew York – A single Bronx voter listed in official records as being 164 years old led Board of Elections officials to review their files — where they turned up another 849 New Yorkers who were supposedly alive when Abe Lincoln was president.

The stunning discovery came after The Post reported last week that the birth date of Luz Pabellon, a spry 73-year-old who has been living and voting in The Bronx since the 1970s, was recorded as Jan. 1, 1850.

This week, a search of the records in all five boroughs found 849 more voters with the same wacky birth date.

Board officials chalked up the implausible age snafu to previous practices that allowed residents not to provide their exact birthdays when registering to vote.  More

Senior dentists say the problem is so severe that children as young as three are having all 20 milk teeth extracted because they have all decayed.

Now, in guidance issued today, the watchdog NICE is instructing staff at primary schools and nurseries to hold supervised brushing sessions at least once a day.  More

“We have an assault of improper touching from one person to another without consent occur, which leads to the credibility of assault,” said Cmdr. Jeremy Clifton.  More

It’s a record that spans four states, escalating from speeding tickets to sexual assaults. Somewhere along the line, police say the 43-year-old Vann became a serial killer.

His life is now under a microscope, with authorities saying his killing spree could go well beyond the bodies of Anith Jones, Afrikka Hardy and five other women he has led them to.

Vann’s run-ins with police go back as far as 20 years, starting in 1993, with tickets for speeding and driving without a license in North Carolina,  and in Calumet City, he pleaded guilty to aggravated fleeing from police.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday that Vann tried to set himself and his then-girlfriend on fire in April 2004.  More

Former Police Chief Speaks on Latest Michael Brown Shooting Information

Posted By Staff

Date: October 21st, 2014

Category: Crime

hands upFERGUSON, Missouri – Information about the Michael Brown fatal police shooting is beginning to leak out, and former St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says it’s no accident the feds are allowing the information.

Fitch says he thinks the feds recognize that it’s “probably very unlikely” that there’s going to be charges against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

“There was a struggle over the weapon. Law enforcement, we know that about half the officers killed every year with firearms are killed with their own,” he says.

“If Michael Brown was truly turned around and basically charging the officer, he already went for round one fighting over his handgun. Are you going to go for round two and take the chance of losing it this time?” Fitch asks. “I think that would be a more logical explanation as to why Officer Wilson would have discharged his firearm at Michael Brown.”  More

muslimNew York – In a cynical and duplicitous attempt to capitalize on New York City’s documented racial profiling problems, a pair of bloggers have created a video purporting to show an NYPD officer stopping and frisking a pair of Muslim men for the crime of wearing traditional Islamic garments.

Summit had said the practice started last year to reduce teams from overhearing each other.  More

naked artistKIEV, Ukraine – A Russian artist cut off his ear lobe on top of a city wall on Sunday in protest of his country putting political dissidents in psychiatric wards.
