babySYDNEY – A 30-year-old Sydney mother has been charged with trying to kill her newborn son by abandoning him in a roadside drain for five days before passers-by heard his cries, police said Monday.

The week-old baby was in serious but stable condition in Westmead Children’s Hospital a day after cyclists found him in a 8-foot deep drain beside the M7 Motorway in the suburb of Quakers Hill, police said in a statement.

His mother, Saifale Nai, did not appear in court to answer the attempted murder charge. Her lawyer did not enter a plea and the magistrate formally refused her bail.

Nai will remain in custody until her next court appearance on Friday. She would face a potential maximum sentence of 25 years in prison if convicted. More

big bootieNorth Carolina – A Charlotte mother is expressing concern after a class assignment she considers offensive was given to high school students. Some say it has racial undertones.

“I was completely stunned,” the mother said. “This is not appropriate language at all for the children in the school.”

The question was from a test on genetics.

“LaShamanda has a heterozygous big bootie, the dominant trait. Her man Fontavius has a small bootie which is recessive. They get married and have a baby named LaPrincess” the biology assignment prompts students.

The assignment then continues to ask, “What is the probability that LaPrincess will inherit her mama’s big bootie?”  More

Nathan Curry, 17, and his brother Benjamin Curry, 16, were arrested Thursday, November 6th, and charged with first degree murder as adults.

The drunk took slugs from a jug of Jack Daniel’s in between catnaps during the Thursday-night ride on the southbound train, a witness said.

“He was just really drunk. He would swig it and then nod out. He must’ve taken four swigs in four stops,” said Peter Davis, an editor at the Daily Front Row fashion magazine who snapped the pic at around 8:30?p.m.

“He was oblivious. He kind of looked at me when I took the picture, but he didn’t seem to care.”  More

Darrell BeattyNew York – And stay out this time!

A Queens judge on Wednesday denied a bid by an ex-con accused of stealing a 70-year-old woman’s house to stay in the home — and gave him 10 days to clear out.

Darrell Beatty, 49, was arrested on grand larceny and other charges last month for allegedly forging a deed to Jennifer Merin’s Laurelton home — and then moving into the three-bedroom house with his two sons and their pit bull.

As the Daily News first reported Tuesday, Beatty posted his bail Oct. 22 — and moved right back in.

Both Beatty and Merin were in Queens Housing Court on Wednesday for a hearing before Judge Inez Hoyos.  More

Then, last week, Parks, Recreation & Public Facilities Superintendent Erik Schulze piped up. It turns out smoking in Turlock’s public parks has been illegal for more than a decade.  More

YouTube user and software developer Christopher Schmidt has been taking his Phantom FC40 quadcopter drone out into public areas to fly it around the skies a couple times each week.

However, a large hawk took offense to the quadcopter drone loudly buzzing in the same airspace.

The GoPro camera captured the hawk swooping in from above and slamming into the drone. At this point, Schmidt throttled down the props to avoid doing any serious damage to the hawk and the drone is filmed falling to the ground where it lands upside down on a grassy area of the park.  More

New at the pot shop is a light-dose “Rookie Cookie” for people who aren’t used to eating medical-grade pot.

univThe University of California – San Francisco will launch an online abortion course this Monday, an Internet class being hailed as the first of its kind.

The course will delve into “clinical aspects of medication abortion, aspiration abortion, post-abortion contraception, and pain management for abortion,” as well as topics such as the history of abortion, “abortion stigma,” complications and counseling, its outline states.

“I think that if we can inspire even a small portion of the people who take the course to take steps in their communities to increase access to safe abortion and decrease stigma about abortion, then we have been totally successful,” Dr. Jody Steinauer, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of California – San Francisco, told The Daily Beast, which first reported on the class, noting an estimated 3,000 people have signed up so far.  More

chickTexas – Animal rights campaigners PETA have requested permission to install a 10-foot high roadside memorial for chickens killed when an 18-wheeler overturned in Bryan last month.

Thousands of chickens were stacked up on the transporter in cages which were smashed open when it crashed September 30 at the intersection of U.S. 21 and FM 2818.

It’s not known how many died but PETA said they want to put up the tombstone to be a reminder to drivers to be careful with their live cargo and encourage people to go vegan.

“Every year there are thousands of chicken and other animals that are transported hundreds of miles in all weather and are involved in traffic accidents like this and they suffer and die at the side of the road,” said Laura Cascada, campaign manager for PETA.  More

sayNew Jersey – Details are beginning to emerge from the Sayreville War Memorial High School football team’s hazing scandal, and they are ugly.

According to an NJ.com report, accusations of sexual abuse among members of the program sparked a criminal investigation by local and county police, and led to the cancellation of the varsity, junior varsity and freshman seasons this week by Superintendent Richard Labbe.

An unnamed parent told the New Jersey publication the daily incidents would begin with a howling noise from a senior football player, followed by locker room lights going off.

A freshman football player would then be pinned to the floor, his arms and feet held down by upperclassmen. The victim would be lifted into the air and a finger forced in his rectum. On some occasions, that finger would then be shoved into the freshman’s mouth.  More

beeArizona – A massive swarm of bees attacked four people in southern Arizona Wednesday, killing one and hospitalizing another.

Douglas Fire Capt. Ray Luzania told The Arizona Republic that two landscape workers were found in critical condition outside a residence on East 20th Street at about 10:30 a.m.

One of the workers had collapsed and was having trouble breathing when emergency workers arrived. Both were rushed to a local hospital, where one of the victims was pronounced dead. Luzania said the injured second victim person was believed to have been stung more than 100 times.

A bee exterminator later located a large hive in the attic of the house where the men had been working. The exterminator told the Republic that the hive — about 4 feet wide and 6 feet long — was about 10 years old and had approximately 800,000 bees inside. The homeowner, a 90-year-old man, was evacuated and is now staying with his daughter.  More
