iran ayaIran’s parliament is seeking a ban on vasectomies and a tightening of abortion rules as the country moves away from its progressive laws on family planning in an attempt to increase the birthrate.

Two decades after Iran initiated an effective birth control program, including subsidized male sterilization surgeries and free condom distribution, the country is to make a U-turn.

Last year the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (picture), criticized existing policy on contraception, describing it as an imitation of western lifestyle.

The 74-year-old has urged the government to tackle what he believes to be an ageing population and to double the number of people in Iran from 77 million to at least 150 million.  More

Date: April 16th, 2014

roachesSpring has sprung — and so have the creepy critters all over Soho.

Two weeks after a mouse infestation forced the shutdown of Dominique Ansel Bakery on Spring  Street (it has since bounced back with a triumphantly themed “Rocky” cronut), Blue Ribbon Sushi on Sullivan is having a cockroach crisis, the Observer has  learned.

A male  diner was having lunch at the maki and sashimi joint on Monday when a roach fell  from the ceiling and landed on his table, followed by four others.

“These  weren’t small cockroaches,” he told the Observer, poising his thumb and  forefinger about an inch away from each other to approximate the size of the  bug. “A person from the restaurant said, ‘Maybe it’s about to rain, this hasn’t  happened before.’”  More

bectonAn Arkansas gynecologist is facing video voyeurism charges after he allegedly used his cell phone to take nude photos of patients during office exams.

Police began investigating Paul Becton, Jr. earlier this month after a patient told cops that she was concerned that the 68-year-old doctor “produced his cellular telephone and took photographs of her pubic region and buttocks” during an office visit, according to an arrest affidavit.

Armed with a search warrant, Arkansas State Police investigators seized Becton’s phone during an April 10 visit to his office in Paragould, a city about 20 miles northeast of Jonesboro.

A subsequent analysis of Becton’s phone revealed “numerous images of nude females that appear to have been taken in a medical office during medical examinations.” The photos were found “in the deleted images within the hard-drive” of the phone.  More

Posted By Staff

Date: April 16th, 2014

badLondon – A hairdresser in west London was confronted by two men claiming to be officials from the North Korean embassy earlier this month after putting up a promotional poster making light of dictator Kim Jong-un’s distinctive coiffure.

The trouble started when Mo Nabbach put up an image of Kim sporting a military salute, a grin on his face, and his trademark short-back-and-sides, long-in-the-middle look.

The poster’s lettering said, “Bad hair day? 15% off all gent cuts through the month of April. Tuesday-Thursday.”

 One day, Nabbach told the London Evening Standard, two men came by the shop window and began making photographs and taking notes. The men then entered the house and told Nabbach to take the poster down, claiming it was “disrespectful,” to their leader.  More

Date: April 15th, 2014

hinesFlorida – 30-year-old Christina Hines stopped by a gas station early Tuesday morning in Casselberry, Florida, but left a $50 bill on the counter when she exited the convenience store.

A clerk tried to give it back, but Ms. Hines was already driving away.

As it turned out, a Seminole County sheriff’s deputy had just arrived.

When he learned that the clerk was trying to give the woman back her $50, the deputy offered to go after the woman and return the money himself. As WKMG Local 6 reports, what should have been a simple, good deed wound up becoming a high-speed pursuit.

The   Orlando Sentinel reports that the deputy caught up with Ms. Hines, but before alerting her to his presence, he decided to check her tags. It was then that the deputy discovered Ms. Hines’ license had been suspended. He put on his lights and sirens and that’s when Ms. Hines sped off.  More

Sars Research Lab Loses 2,000 Tubes of Killer Virus

Posted By Staff

Date: April 15th, 2014

sarsFrance – A prestigious research institute in France said it had lost thousands of tubes of samples of the deadly Sars coronavirus.

A routine inventory check at Paris’ Pasteur Institute revealed that 2,349 tubes containing fragments of the virus responsible for the deaths of 774 people in 2002 were missing, the center named after French chemist Louis Pasteur said.

The institute was quick to reassure the public and said that the contents of the missing vials had no infectious potential. They contained only part of the virus and had no ability to spread.

“Independent experts referred by health authorities have qualified such potential as ‘non-existing’ according to the available evidence and literature on the survival of the Sars virus,” the institute said.  More

munichGermany – Leave it to the Germans to allow naked people to roam freely…but only in certain places.

So goes the general reaction in Europe these days to the news that the city of Munich has given enthusiastic approval to allowing naked people to stroll freely and to sunbathe in public spaces.

This doesn’t mean that just anybody who feels like taking his or her clothes off can strip down everywhere.

The city, according to the Atlantic Cities, has designated six official “Urban Naked Zones” in parks offering privacy, but also only minutes away from the busy city center.  More

Rosalind Osgood, the Broward County board member, said enforcing any dress code inside the classroom is especially difficult when there are parents showing up at school dressed in hair curlers, pajamas and saggy pants that hang below the waist, The Sun Sentinel reported.

 She admits that there would be challenges enforcing such a dress code, but offered a few ideas that might help parents support the idea, like staging a fashion show.  More

Date: April 15th, 2014

romeA woman in Rome became pregnant with twins after undergoing fertility treatment—except the embryos she was implanted with weren’t those of her and her partner.

The woman wasn’t alerted to the issue until she was three months along. The AFP reports the switch somehow happened on Dec. 4 at the Sandro Pertini Hospital in Rome.

 Four couples received treatment that day, and it’s unclear whether any other improper pregnancies resulted.

There’s also no word on how the mix-up came to light, though Rome’s health authority said it learned there was “genetic incompatibility” between the parents and embryos on March 27.  More

Here’s Why the Nevada Rancher Refuses to Recognize Federal Authority

Posted By Staff

Date: April 14th, 2014

Cliven BundyNevada – Cliven Bundy, the last remaining rancher in Clark County, Nev., stands at the center of what has become a national controversy over the private use of federal land. He doesn’t believe the land belongs to the federal government.

“I think this is very clarifying to people,” Beck said. “Your stance is, ‘I do not recognize these lands to be federal … I am staking out my claim that the United States government does not have any jurisdiction, and any rights to the land that [I am] now grazing on.’”

“That’s right,” Bundy said. “It’s Nevada land.”

Bundy said he has “no contract with the United States government,” and the federal government has “no jurisdiction or authority” on his grazing rights, water rights, access rights, ranch improvement rights or anything else that “belongs to ‘we the people’ of Clark County.”

The rancher took his argument back to the 19th century, when Nevada became a state.  More   Ranch Rebellion Was Americans’ “Line in the Sand”   Nevada ranch standoff could leave dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation   Flashback: Sen. Reid Breaks Ground for Nevada Solar Farm Near Bundy Ranch

Dog Chosen for Jury Duty

dog juryNew Jersey – “It’s kinda strange.”

That was New Jersey resident Barrett Griner’s first thought when he checked his mail last week and found that one of the mail items from his local county clerk’s office was not for him; it was for his 5 year-old German Shepherd dog, IV.

“I got the mail and I look at it, and I’m like IV Griner, this is my dog’s name,” he said.

“I’m wondering like what is this? Something from the county office  about her vaccinations or something? Like why is my dog getting mail?”

The notice, addressed from the Cumberland County Clerk of Courts, was a juror summons for someone with the first name IV and the last name Griner; the exact name Barrett Griner IV says he legally gave to his dog.  More

She said the man acted strangely during the flight, and that at one point he came out of the bathroom soaking wet. She said when he went to the back of the cabin to try to pry open the door, a flight attendant screamed for help.  More
