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.

But the viral video is a sham, a staged production aimed to go viral and pile up views and YouTube channel subscriptions for its young creators, Brooklynites Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar, who get a piece of the revenue generated by ads that run before their videos play.

While most of the pair’s videos involve pranks, sidewalk attempts at comedy and social commentary, or “Muslim-related stuff,” their latest clip seeks to latch onto an issue that has troubled many New Yorkers and tainted the NYPD.  More

banNew Jersey – The organization that governs high school sports in New Jersey says there was insufficient proof that a high school football team’s prank was racially motivated.

The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association investigated after North Plainfield High School filed a complaint because the Summit team shoved bananas through a hole in the visiting team’s locker room door before a Sept. 13 game.

About half of North Plainfield’s players are black.

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

The artist, Pyotr Pavlensky, is the same man who nailed his scrotum to the ground as a statement last year.

Drinking Soda Linked To Premature Aging, Disease, Early Death

Posted By Staff

soda machineSAN FRANCISCO – A new study looked at whether America’s thirst for soda speeds up how the body’s cells age.

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco used a sample of 5300 healthy adults. Dr. Elissa Epel worked on the study for 5 years.

“We think we can get away with drinking lots of soda as long as we are not gaining weight, but this suggests that there is an invisible pathway that leads to accelerated aging, regardless of weight,” said Dr. Epel.

Epel’s team discovered that in people who drank more sugar-sweetened beverages, the ends of their chromosomes, known as telomeres, were shorter.  More

Darren Deon VannIndiana – Police in northwest Indiana identified the suspected serial killer believed to have murdered seven women, and warned at a news conference that the body count could rise.

The man accused of killing a woman Friday at a Hammond, Ind., Motel 6, and then leading authorities to a string of dead bodies dumped in abandoned homes in nearby Gary, was identified as Darren Deon Vann, 43, of Gary.

dumbChina – Chinese state media has urged its citizens to think carefully when choosing an English name, so that don’t they pick one with an unfortunate meaning.

Many Chinese people prefer to use an English name, particularly if they conduct business with the West.

But CCTV says people should avoid fictional characters, names with the potential for sexual innuendo, or random words like Dragon, Fish or Lawyer, which could come back and haunt you “if you want a call back from that serious law firm in America”.

There’s also a lengthy warning about names with sexual connotations, especially when used in conjunction with Dong or Wang so avoid anything like ‘Bunny Wang’ at all times,” the website says.  More

fat womanWigan, England - Christina Briggs, 26, says she hates weighing 350lbs, but she can’t do anything about it because she is being forced by the government to eat junk food.

‘It’s not easy being overweight and on government assistance. If I was well off, I’d be able to buy fresh food and afford a gym membership,” said Briggs. “I tried swimming but it cost $36 a month and it meant I had to cut back on my favorite pizza and Chinese takeout.”

Briggs is unemployed, receives $32,189.20 in benefits a year, and lives in public housing with her two children by different fathers; she pays nothing for home expenses. Including housing, healthcare, and miscellaneous reimbursements, Briggs receives more than $62,000 a year in total government assistance.

She left school as a teenager after she got pregnant with her daughter following a one night stand.  More

jinnDubai – A court in Dubai has granted a divorce to a man who says his wife is possessed by spirits and refuses to have sex with him.

After persistently denying him sex, the woman finally told her husband to discuss the issue with her parents.

They told the man that his wife was, in fact, possessed by a jinn, and that several religious scholars had unsuccessfully tried to exorcise the spirit.

Upon hearing this, the husband lodged a divorce case with the Dubai Sharia Court. His lawyer told a hearing: “The woman and her family cheated my client. They should have been honest and clear about the fact that the wife was possessed by a jinn. He was only told about the jinn after the problem escalated. The woman does not deserve any allowance.”  More

missRussia – There is an actual, real-life Miss Hitler contest going on right now. On VKontakte— Russia’s Facebook—Russian and Ukrainian Nazis and the people who love them, are voting for their favorite pictures of proud, beautiful anti-Semitic women posted to the site’s “Adolf Hitler” group page.

Boasting more than 7,000 followers, the page describes itself as a group of Russians and Ukrainians who pay tribute to Hitler, history’s best-known goose-stepping genocidal maniac.

Miss Ostland 2014, as it’s called, is a social media pageant tribute to Ostland, the Nazi civilian occupation regime of the Baltic states in 1941 in which more than a million Jews were murdered.

But Miss Ostland isn’t all about genocide. Actually, it’s more about “feminine beauty” than anything else.  More

bearCalifornia – A man who suffered a heart attack and died outside his rural Northern California home had his corpse dragged away and eaten by a black bear that was sheltering nearby, medical officials said.

The 65-year-old man, identified as Marion Williams, had walked from his trailer in Humboldt County to a water source about 100 yards away on Oct. 8 when he suffered cardiac arrest, said Humboldt County Deputy Coroner Roy Horton.

A bear that was bedding just feet from the water source apparently saw or smelled the body and dragged Williams away, he said.

The bear did eat most of this guy. He was about 85 percent consumed.  More

The 24 meter-high artwork by American artist Paul McCarthy, called “Tree,” was unveiled on Thursday on the Vendome Square alongside the Ritz Hotel and luxury jewelry stores, provoking a storm of mirth and outrage on social media over its resemblance to a sex toy called a butt-plug.

One man was so outraged that he slapped McCarthy three times in the face, yelling that he was not French and his work had no business on the square, before running off, reported Le Monde daily.  More
