bansAn Indonesian district has banned women and men from eating together unless they are related or married.

An official from the profoundly Islamic Aceh province on the northwest tip of Sumatra island – one of the country’s most conservative regions – said the prohibition was implemented to make women more “well-behaved”.

 The regulation dictates women in the Bireuën district will not be allowed to share a table with men at restaurants and coffee shops unless they are accompanied by their spouse or a close male relative.

“Unmarried males and females who are not close relatives should not eat and drink at the same table, because it is sinful according to shariah law,” Jufliwan, the head of Bireuën district’s Islamic Affairs office, told AFP.

taserA school resource officer from Ohio was placed on administrative leave for using a stun gun on a sleeping student, school officials said.

Maryssa Boskoski, 32, was a part-time resource officer assigned to Liberty Preparatory School in Smithville, Ohio, for the year, WEWS reported. A male student, who is a junior at the school, would not wake up for his teacher or Interim Principal Jenna Parnell on August 30, according to the news station.

Boskoski arrived at the classroom with Parnell and activated the Taser a few feet away from the teen, WEWS reported. The Taser did not touch the student, but the sparks from the Taser alarmed other teens in the classroom and woke up the sleeping student. The school announced Boskoski was placed on administrative leave on Wednesday.

“She did take her Taser, remove the cartridge from it, and arced the Taser,” said Smithville Police Chief Howard Funk.

Naked Florida man starts house fire while baking cookies on George Foreman grill in Niceville

niceResponding to a house fire last week, Niceville police officers and firefighters encountered an odd sight.

When firefighters got to the home around 5:30 p.m., they could see smoke coming from inside. A naked man opened the front door, said, “I’m sorry” and closed the door.

Police officers arrived shortly after to assist.

The man came to the door again, left it open and went back into the house.

According to the offense report from the Police Department, the man showed no signs of understanding the danger he was in. There were several things on fire inside the home, including some towels.

The man admitted to drinking two liters of vodka and smoking marijuana starting around 9 a.m. that morning. He was examined at the scene and had no life-threatening injuries, the report said. He refused further medical treatment.

Based on the fire department’s investigation, the man allegedly tried baking cookies on a George Foreman grill — which he left unattended. The grill and cookies caught fire, so he put dry towels on top of the grill. Those caught fire, too, causing the fire to spread.

fishA fishmonger in Kuwait has been closed down for sticking googly eyes on fish to make them appear fresher.

A video of the fish was first circulated among local WhatsApp users.

And images, including one showing one of the fake eyes slipping off, have been shared on social media by local bloggers and newspaper Al Bayan.

Rival Kuwaiti fish sellers reacted by advertising fresh fish “without cosmetics” with a picture of a fish and a selection of coloured contact lenses.

In July, another Kuwaiti fishmonger was accused of stuffing his fish with steel nails to increase their weight and market value.

Two co-workers in Chippewa Falls discover they’re father and son

fatherNathan’s adoptive parents knew who his biological parents were but because Nathan never asked, they never told him. One day, Nathan’s mom noticed that Nathan was Facebook friends with his biological father. After continuing the conversation with his adoptive mother, Nathan discovered his biological father is a truck driver, just like him. “She just went on my Facebook and went through my friends list and brought up his picture and I said get out of here,” said Boos.

Turns out, Nathan’s biological father has been working at Rock Solid Transport in Chippewa Falls. The two men have actually been working together for the past two years. “He messaged me on Facebook one day and asked me if I knew his biological mother and I’m like yeah that’s my ex-wife…and I about fell out of my seat…I’m like oh my god,” said Bob Degaro of Chippewa Falls.
Bob, who has two other children with his ex-wife, says the choice to give Nathan up for adoption was a difficult one caused by financial stress. “Back then I wasn’t much of a dad. His biological mom had chosen the adoptive parents because they were somewhat related…distant cousins I believe but I didn’t know that,” said Degaro.

Both say they’re excited to continue growing the friendship they already had.”It’s still kind of a shock and there’s days I’m not sure exactly what to say or how to act…I mean he is my son but we didn’t have that father son relationship growing up and then we became working partners before we knew who we really were,” said Bob. Nathan says they’re just taking things one day at a time, or one mile at a time as truck drivers say.

Both men say the unlikely reunion has brought them both a sense of peace and they plan to continue building their friendship. Nate is set to get married soon and says he’s looking forward to Bob being there on his special day.

Virginia man puts up electric fence to keep kids off his lawn

fenceBryan Tucker says that he is annoyed at school kids trespassing on his lawn while they are waiting for their school bus. He said that he erected the fence on Tuesday because he had an issue last year with kids littering and trespassing on his property.

He complains that he has to pick up trash every day and that they don’t respect other people’s land.

He says that the “No Trespassing” signs that he posted on his property for years have seemed to do anything so he decided that he needed to try something different.

As you could imagine his neighbours were in shock to find out about the fence as kids gathered at the bus stop for their first day of school.

A man says that he felt a literal shock when he touched the fence.

County workers and police were called to check out the property. They found that the fence was on the county’s right of way, so Tucker took it down a few hours only after he put it up.

Tucker says that he could put the fence back up as long as it’s on his property line – which is 18 feet back from the street. He says that he hopes he doesn’t need to do that.

“The message has gotten out, I’m pretty sure, to everybody,” he said. “The point’s gotten across.”

seagulA man accused of kicking a seagull that tried to eat his cheeseburger at a New Hampshire beach has been fined $124.

Police investigated the report from a bystander at Hampton Beach earlier this summer.

NH1 reports the man Nate Rancloes, said he had just returned from getting a cheeseburger and fries and was sitting on the sand.

He said seagulls got to the burger, and he spun around with his leg to shoo one away, but struck the bird. He said it was a simple mistake.

A witness said it appeared the bird’s leg was injured and that it struggled to fly away.

New Hampshire Fish and Game Lt. Adam Cheeney says seagulls are protected under federal law.

Police suspect Vail woman of stuffing smoked salmon into her neighbor’s gas tank

gasThere’s not a stuffed salmon recipe on Earth that asks you to stuff your salmon into your neighbor’s gas tank, but that’s what Vail Police found.

A Vail resident received a rap on the wrist after she allegedly stuffed smoked salmon into her neighbor’s gas tank.

Not canned salmon, as originally thought, but smoked salmon.

The neighbors live next to each other in a duplex and have been feuding for months over the usual neighbor stuff — parking, loud music and cable TV.

Vail Police got involved when an elderly man called to report that when he tried to gas up his minivan at the West Vail Shell, he removed his filler cap to discover that the nozzle was stuffed with when he thought was canned salmon.

Alas, no, it was smoked salmon, a Vail Police officer discovered when he was summoned to the scene of the crime.

A quick investigation uncovered a few facts:

• The man’s neighbor, living in the duplex next door, had served smoked salmon for dinner the night before.

• They had leftovers.

• She denied knowing anything about the smoked salmon stuffed into her neighbor’s gas tank and could not imagine how it got there.

• She allegedly plays her music really loudly during the day, as well as other non-neighborly behavior, which irritates the elderly couple next door.

• When the Vail Police officer asked her about it, she looked down and to her left twice during a 20-minute conversation with the officer.

• The officer explained that, under no uncertain terms, he did not believe that she had nothing to do with stuffing smoked salmon into her neighbor’s gas tank.

• She insisted to the officer that her neighbors were also being non-neighborly and had given Comcast permission to run a cable by digging up her yard. Comcast, the officer patiently explained, has a utility easement and doesn’t need anyone’s permission.

• The officer explained that she needed to let her elderly neighbors “live in peace.”

• No charges were filed, although a local mechanic charged the elderly couple $211 to clean up the salmon and their gas tank.

The officer also suggested that the elderly couple hire an attorney; they hired Sarah Baker.

“This incident may have high humor value, but it is one incident in a much larger story that is really disturbing to my client, the elderly neighbor to whom it is happening,” Baker said.

overdueA Kentucky library said a man returned a library book with a note apologizing for it being 50 years overdue.

The Lexington Public Library tweeted a photo of the book, Don Lawson’s The United States in World War I; the story of General John J. Pershing and the American Expeditionary Forces, and the apology note from the remorseful patron.

The note, signed “Dale H.,” said the book was checked out in 1968.

The library said the 15-cent per day late fees are capped at $6.75, but without the cap the fee would have been more than $2,700.

“It’s never too late to return an overdue book,” the tweet said.

Japanese woman, 83, dubbed world’s oldest club DJ

djAn 83-year-old Japanese woman has been announced by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest professional club DJ.

Sumiko Iwamura, 83, aka DJ Sumirock, said she decided to attend a DJ schoolat the age of 77 and soon discovered she had a talent for it.

Iwamura, who owns and works in the kitchen of a Chinese food restaurant, has a regular DJ slot at Decabar Z in Shinjuku, but her talents have led to guest gigs at exotic locations including Paris and New Zealand.

She told Guinness World Records that DJing isn’t all that different from running her restaurant.

“You get feedback from your customers quickly in both cases,” she said. “If you’re playing tracks and they don’t like it, they’ll leave the floor and start drinking at the bar. If the tracks are danceable, then they’ll stay on and dance their heart out.”

“Restaurant customers are the same — if it tastes good, then they look happy, and they’ll tell me that they like it. For me, it’s easy to work out how people are feeling in both cases,” she said.

fanA dedicated Philadelphia Eagles fan said it was superstition that led him to arrive for the team’s season opener 14 hours before kickoff.

Gregg Matza showed up at Lincoln Financial Field at 4:15 a.m. Thursday for the 8:20 p.m. game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Matza said he arrived similarly early for the Eagles’ NFC Championship game against the Minnesota Vikings in January.

“I’m superstitious. So I kissed my wife goodbye, she said ‘Fly Eagles Fly.’ I’m here, I’m not leaving,” Matza told WPVI-TV.

The fan said he wouldn’t have been able to sleep if he had stayed home.

“How can you sleep? It’s like Christmas morning for Eagles fans all over the world. We’re Super Bowl champs,” he told KYW Newsradio.

Matza’s gambit may have paid off — the Eagles defeated the Falcons 18-12.

Woman films bed bug infestation on Philadelphia bus

bedTransportation officials in Philadelphia said actions are being taken after a passenger on a city bus captured video of a bed bug infestation.

Crystal Lopez said she was riding a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority bus with her daughters, ages 3 and 11, when she felt a burning sensation on her arm.

“Right before I was to pull the cord, I feel like this itching, burning feeling on my arm. It was in its entirety from my wrist to my armpit,” Lopez told WPVI-TV.

“I felt like my arm was on fire, like my whole arm was on fire and itching all at once,” she said.

Lopez captured video of the cause of her discomfort — bed bugs infesting the upholstered back of the seat. She posted video of the bugs to Facebook, where the footage went viral.

She said her allergic reaction to the bites required a doctor visit.

SEPTA officials said the bus was taken out of service after officials became aware of Lopez’s experience. The authority said buses are treated by exterminators once a month to prevent prolonged infestations and crews are in the process of replacing upholstered bus seats with plastic, which is a less suitable environment for bed bugs.
