3-yr-old child accused of attempted murder surrenders to court
Court Correspondent

Believe it or not! A 3-year-old child, accused in an attempted murder case, surrendered before court in his father's lap yesterday and prayed for bail.

Baby boy Iman Ali looked horrified at the court environment with lots of policemen, lawyers, journalists and litigants around. He cried embracing his father and gave a blank look being unable to comprehend all that was going on in the court.


The sensational appearance drew hundreds of onlookers to the court premises, who castigated the complainant of the case for what they said was framing the boy.


Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Towfiqul Alam however granted bail to Iman upon a bond of Tk 5,000 with two guarantors -- the father and one of his lawyers. The prosecution did not oppose the bail petition.

Iman appeared before the Court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Dhaka in his father Anwar Ali's lap along with the lawyers at 1:30pm. The lawyers while moving the bail petition told the court that the complainant implicated Iman in the case despite knowing his age.

The complainant's son-in-law, Ali Hossain, earlier also filed nine other criminal cases accusing other family members in a bid to grab three katha land of Iman's father at Sayedabad in the city.

WESTON, Fla. - A woman got a lot more than she asked for at
a McDonald's drive-thru. Janice Meissner ordered a bagel and
a Diet Coke for breakfast, but her bag of food seemed unusu- ally heavy. She soon discovered the bag was loaded with hun- dreds, maybe thousands, of dollars in a sealed plastic bag.
The money turned out to be the restaurant's bank deposit.
Officials for McDonald's said the deposit was put in a food
bag to make it less obvious before it was taken to the bank.
It was accidentally left too close to the drive-thru window
and the employee didn't check twice before sending it out
the window. Meissner did a double take after opening the bag
before backing up her minivan to the window to return the
money. McDonald's officials said they will send Meissner a
thank-you letter and $50 in gift certificates.

OTTAWA - A student at Carleton University was having a spit-
ting contest with friends Saturday night when he plunged 11
floors off a downtown high-rise to his death. It appeared
that Ameer "AJ" Jinah took a running start in an attempt to
spit further than his two friends when he accidentally
launched himself over the balcony railing. The leaping
spitter was described by security guard Jason Armstrong as
"one of the classiest guys. He had a maturity beyond his
age." Actions speak louder than words in this case...

SYDNEY - A 69-year-old Australian woman is suing a Sydney
hospital because surgeons left a pair of scissors in her
abdomen for 18 months. Pat Skinner suffered months of pain
after doctors at St. George Hospital removed part of her
colon in May 2001, she told Sky News Tuesday. Only after she
insisted, an X-ray was finally performed and the scissors
were caught on film, she said. "I was just devastated, I
could not believe what I was seeing. It was like a nightmare
seeing those scissors up on the screen," Skinner said. Call-
ing the mishap "human error" a hospital spokesman said the
scissors were removed in October 2002. Skinner said she was
going public with her experience because she had decided to
pursue legal action against the hospital.

LISBON - There are easier ways to do it, but this method is
guaranteed to get you in the newspapers. A man, apparently
wanting to commit suicide, jumped into the lion pit at Lisbon
zoo where he was promptly attacked and killed. Zoo officials
said the 61-year-old man climbed a five-yard-high wall and
leaped into the pit, home to 10 lions. He ignored warnings
from gardeners to remain still and instead began bothering
the lions. A 10-year-old female, then attacked and killed the
man. "She broke his neck...and he was dead instantly," a zoo
administrator told Reuters. A police spokesman said the man
had been distraught about the recent death of his son.

Nevertheless; it was a good choice by him!

LOS ANGELES - A construction worker had six nails driven into his head in an accident with a high-powered nail gun, but doctors said Wednesday they expect him to make a full recovery.

Slideshow: X-Rays Reveal Six Nails in Man's Head

Isidro Mejia made his first public appearance Wednesday since the April 19 accident that left him with 3 1/2-inch nails embedded in his face, neck and skull. He told reporters in Spanish from his wheelchair that he does not remember much about the accident, but is grateful to be alive.


"He says that he's very happy to be alive," said Dr. Rafael Quinonez, a neurosurgeon who removed the nails at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center. "And he told me this morning that he thought he was going to die. He was happy when he opened his eyes, and he saw that he's still with us."


Mejia, 39, was atop an unfinished home when he fell from the roof onto a co-worker who was using the nail gun, Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Mark Newlands said.


The two men tried to grab each to keep from falling, but both tumbled to the ground. At some point, the nail gun discharged and drove the nails into Mejia's head.


"They're extremely powerful," Newlands said. "They've got to drive through three-quarter-inch plywood."


Quinonez said Mejia told authorities he remembered a "shock" to the back of his neck and little else before passing out.


Three nails penetrated Mejia's brain, and one entered his spine below the base of his skull. Doctors said the nails barely missed his brain stem and spinal cord, preventing paralysis or death.


"We did not have too much hope that he would survive, but we did it and he survived," Quinonez said, calling the recovery "close to a miracle."


Mejia is walking with minimal assistance and speaks somewhat slowly because his brain's speech center was affected, but his progress has been "remarkable," Quinonez said. With rehabilitation therapy, he should fully recover, he said.


"He is basically normal," Quinonez said.


Five nails were removed the same day and the sixth, in Mejia's face, was removed April 23 after swelling went down, the hospital said.


Authorities cleared the co-worker of any wrongdoing. (AP)

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - A Vietnamese man who hasn't been to a barber in 31 years is vying to get in the Guinness World Records for having the longest hair, state-controlled media reported Monday.

Tran Van Hay's hair is 20 feet long, Thanh Nien (Young People) newspaper said.

Normally tied up and covered by a scarf, his hair has grown four feet in the past seven years. He last had it washed six years ago, the paper said.


Hay, 67, is a traditional medicine practitioner from southern Kien Giang province, some 220 miles southwest of Ho Chi Minh City. He provides free treatment to villagers in the region.


The Guinness Web site says the current record for long hair, set in 1997, is held by Hoo Sateow of Chiang Mai, Thailand, at 16 feet 11 inches.

CAPE TOWN, South Africa(AP) - It took him two tries, but South African Philip Rabinowitz made it into the Guinness Book of World Records Saturday as the fastest 100-year-old to run 100 meters.

Rabinowitz made his run at the Green Point stadium in 30.86 seconds, beating the previous record of 36.1 seconds.

Last week Rabinowitz also broke the record, clocking 28.7 seconds at the Mandela Park Athletics stadium in Khayelitsha, outside Cape Town. But a power outage stopped the official electronic clock, so the time was not recorded or recognized.


But the man known as "Rabinoblitz" and "Flying Phil" was not deterred, and this week he returned for a second try, the South African Broadcasting Corp. reported.


Rabinowitz already holds the record for world's oldest competitive walker.


He practices daily by walking 3.7 miles and sticks to a healthy diet. Rabinowitz, who turned 100 in February, still works, handling accounts for his daughter's business.


He participated in the South African leg of the Olympic torch relay across the globe earlier this year.

BEIJING, July 25 (Reuters) - Iran defender Mohammad Nosrati has been banned for the rest of the Asian Cup along with controversial referee Abdul Rahman, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said on Sunday.

Two more Iran defenders, Rahman Rezaei and Ali Badavi, were suspended for two matches after becoming embroiled in a violent punch-up with each other during an explosive Group D game against Oman on Saturday.

Nosrati scored an stoppage-time equaliser to give Iran a 2-2 draw after escaping punishment for stamping on Oman striker Imad Ali in the 62nd minute.

The AFC disciplinary committee suspended the 22-year-old for four matches and sent home referee Rahman of Bahrain after reviewing video evidence of the game in Chongqing.

"Our referees were told at the start that we expected much from them and that they were responsible for their decisions," said Farouk Bouzo, chairman of the AFC refereeing committee.

"They were informed that any influential mistake will not be acceptable and that referees who did not show a good standard or made influential mistakes would not be given a second chance."

Nosrati, who salvaged a late draw with a looping header three minutes into stoppage time, was fined $7,000 on top of his four-match ban for violent conduct.

But he was lucky to still be on the pitch after trampling on Ali's back in an off-the-ball incident completely missed by Rahman.

"The AFC wants to send the message that this sort of thing is not accceptable," said AFC general secretary Peter Velappan, who was particularly annoyed about the fight between Badavi and Rezaei.

The two players received additional fines of $3,500 each. The bans mean the Iranian defence has been decimated before the crunch Group D match against Japan on Wednesday.

Badavi and Rezaei became involved in a heated row, slapping each other in the face repeatedly after Rezaei committed a foul in the 57th minute.

"I have never seen anything like that in 50 years involvement in football," said Velappan. "To see two players from the same team fighting was incredible."
Three-times champions Iran, who need at least a draw against Japan to be sure of reaching the quarter-finals, will appeal against the bans, an Iran official said.

Last December, the AFC fined Iran $10,000 after crowd violence in an Asian Cup qualifier in Tehran

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - He is an aspiring rock star, but Yu Zhenhuan's claim to fame for now is that he is the hairiest man in all of China.


http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/nm/20040819/mdf662318.jpg





Hair covers 96 percent of Yu's body. He may be surpassed only by a pair of Mexican brothers -- Victor "Larry" and Gabriel "Danny" Ramos Gomez -- listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as having 98 percent hair cover.


The 26-year-old Yu is candid and unembarrassed about a condition that has made him a phenomenon in China since he was born.


A stringy black fuzz mats every inch of his lanky frame, save for the palms of his hands and the soles of his feet.


And Yu has chosen to make use of his unique physical appearance, placing photos of himself on his Web site www.maohai.com -- or Hairboy.com -- as part of a drive to land a recording contract and become China's newest rock star.


But he recalls a time when he preferred not to face the music. Born in Shenyang in the frozen northeastern province of Liaoning, Yu spent a tough childhood amid much finger-pointing.


"People laughed at me and called me 'caveman.' I used to throw stones back and fight them as a kid, but now I've grown up and learned how to endure it," he said as he recuperated in a hospital ward from ear surgery.


He had the operation in Shanghai recently to remove hair that was impeding his hearing, doctors said.


"I hope to prove myself and others wrong in singing some day. Of course, in the beginning, people will say, that's just "hairboy" singing.


"But I want to rely on my skills to make it big," said Yu, his head wrapped in bandages.


Yu made his entertainment debut at the age of 6 in a movie called "A Hairy Child's Adventure."


Life has been far from easy. Yu has had five other operations to remove hair from his nose and repair his gums, which were engulfing his teeth.


Yu, who uses the name "woolboy" in English for his e-mail, is covered with an average of 256 hairs per square inch of his skin -- a condition doctors call atavism.


"I've had a lot of trouble having so much hair all over my body since I was young, physically and mentally. It's a price that I have to pay," said Yu, whose eyelashes are so long they hide his eyes.


"I used to take it to heart, how people looked at me and said things about me," said Yu, who loves music and has stashed under his hospital bed a huge collection that ranges from Sting to Nat King Cole.


"I didn't want to go outside, I didn't want others to see me, to talk to me, but I realized I needed to be more thick-skinned," he said, adding that he hoped that others with difficult physical conditions would be inspired by his readiness to seek publicity.


CLOSE SHAVE





Before the ear operation, he had problems hearing anything under 40 decibels. Now he can hear over 20 decibels, doctors said. A normal conversation is conducted at around 30 decibels.

Yu's latest operation, which took four hours, was the first such procedure carried out in China.

Doctors said Yu had a close shave.

"There was so much discharge stuck in the inner part of his ears that they were infected. The infection could have spread to his brain if he hadn't done something about it," said Chen Jin'an, director of Shanghai's Ninth People's Hospital's plastic surgery department.

"When people tease or despise me, my best defense is to use my own abilities to prove my worth in society," Yu said.

He plays the guitar, is learning the saxophone and says he must move beyond singing cover versions to writing his own songs.

He makes a living singing in pubs and bars and at concerts, which is how he met his girlfriend.

Yu, who draws inspiration not only from Western artists but also from Taiwan pop stars such as Harlem Yu, has not yet cut an album, but hopes to do so in the second half of this year.

"If I had a choice now, I would want to keep all my hair," said Yu. "It's become my pride and not a burden."

But he also says he wishes he had been born a long time ago. "Because in the olden days, having a lot of hair was a show of masculinity." (Additional reporting by Ben Blanchard)

TRUCKEE, California (AP) -- Ron Hunt's friends have good reason to call him the "Miracle Man."

The construction worker lost an eye but survived a freak accident without brain damage after falling from a ladder and onto an 18-inch-long drill bit that impaled his skull.

"I'm very fortunate I'm not paralyzed or dead," the 41-year-old electrician said Friday.

The 1.5-inch diameter chip auger drill bit was still in his head when his brother, Chris Hunt, and nephew, Ben, met him in a hospital emergency room in Reno, Nevada.

While drilling above his head on August 15, the six-foot ladder Ron Hunt was standing on started to wobble so he tossed the drill aside -- as construction workers are trained to do.

But he fell off the ladder face-first and onto the drill.

"I ran my hands up the drill bit, up to my eye, and put my other hand in the back of my head and felt it coming through the back of my head," he said. "And that's where pretty much the shock set in."

Doctors said the drill bit pushed his brain aside rather than pushing into it, which likely would have caused serious brain damage or death. After weighing their options, doctors essentially unscrewed the bit to remove it.

His nephew thinks he'll be able to laugh about it someday.

"It's just going to be one of those stories," Ben Hunt said. "He'll joke around with his glass eye and pop it out."

Blade-in-brain man's ordeal
July 29 2003

The x-ray of the 7cm serrated knife in the 37-year-old's head.


He had a 7cm knife deep in his brain, but this New Zealand man stayed conscious six hours waiting for surgeons to plan an operation to get it out. <img src=http://www.smh.com.au/ffxImage/urlpicture_id_1059244599952_2003/07/29/main_xray.jpg align=right>

The five-hour surgery had to be carefully planned, said Wellington Hospital neuro-surgeon Martin Hunn, acknowledging that the man would have been in pain during his long wait.

"It's not the kind of operation we wanted to do at the end of the night," he said.

The 37-year-old man was stabbed during a disagreement at about 4am on Sunday in Wellington. Police found him with the blade of the knife buried up to the handle in his head. The blade had entered through his left ear, punctured his skull and carried on in an upward direction into the centre of the man's brain. It narrowly missed major arteries.

Mr Hunn said the man was lucky the serrated knife was not yanked out at the scene.

"It would have been extremely dangerous. A lot of people try and pull the offending object out it's best if it's left in there." If a major blood vessel had been severed, heavy bleeding could lead to death.

Though still in danger of infection, the man was not expected to suffer any permanent brain damage or hearing problems. Most people that survived that sort of injury tended to recover well, Mr Hunn said.

The man would remain in hospital for observation. "He's feeling all right ... just a bit sore."

Unemployed Cannons Creek man Peterson Hannah, 37, appeared in Wellington District Court yesterday charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent. He was remanded in custody to reappear on Friday.

'Come Bite Me!' Right...

Wed Nov 3, 8:16 AM ET Oddly Enough - Reuters



TAIPEI (Reuters) - A man leaped into a lion's den at the Taipei Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.


"Jesus will save you!" the 46-year-old man shouted at two African lions lounging under a tree a few meters away.


"Come bite me!" he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.


One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses and tranquilizer guns.


Newspapers said that the lions had been fed earlier in the day, otherwise the man might have been more seriously hurt ... or worse.

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A pod of dolphins circled protectively round a group of New Zealand swimmers to fend off an attack by a great white shark, media reported on Tuesday.

Lifesavers Rob Howes, his 15-year-old daughter Niccy, Karina Cooper and Helen Slade were swimming 300 feet off Ocean Beach near Whangarei on New Zealand's North Island when the dolphins herded them -- apparently to protect them from a shark.


"They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing tight circles around us," Howes told the New Zealand Press Association (NZPA).


Howes tried to drift away from the group, but two of the bigger dolphins herded him back just as he spotted a nine-foot great white shark swimming toward the group.


"I just recoiled. It was only about 2 m away from me, the water was crystal clear and it was as clear as the nose on my face," Howes said, referring to a distance of 6 feet.


"They had corralled us up to protect us," he said.


The lifesavers spent the next 40 minutes surrounded by the dolphins before they could safely swim back to shore. The incident happened on October 30, but the lifesavers kept the story to themselves until now.


Environment group Orca Research said dolphins attacked sharks to protect themselves and their young, so their actions in protecting the lifesavers was understandable.


"They could have sensed the danger to the swimmers and taken action to protect them," Orca's Ingrid Visser told NZPA.

yeah i read about that yesterday. dolphins are sooo cute

"Auckland University marine mammal research scientist Doctor Rochelle Constantine said dolphins were normally vigilant in the presence of sharks.

The altruistic response of the dolphins was normal, she said.

"They like to help the helpless." "

Another bizarre dolphin story

"Swimmers warned over 'sexually aggressive' dolphin

Swimmers have been warned to stay away from a "sexually aggressive" dolphin which has made its home in a south coast harbour.

Georges the dolphin - also known as Randy - has become a tourist attraction since arriving in Weymouth harbour, Dorset, in April.

But animal experts have warned swimmers to avoid the 10-year-old male bottlenose dolphin, which has shown an unhealthy interest in divers and also has an unusual attraction to boat propellers."

NAIROBI (Reuters) - A 120-year-old giant tortoise living in a Kenyan sanctuary has become inseparable from a baby hippo rescued by game wardens, officials said on Thursday.



http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/nm/20050106/mdf814516.jpg



The year-old hippo calf christened Owen was rescued last month, suffering from dehydration after being separated from his herd in a river that drains into the Indian Ocean.


"When we released Owen into the enclosure, he lumbered to the tortoise which has a dark gray color similar to grown up hippos," Sabine Baer, rehabilitation and ecosystems manager at the park, told Reuters.


She said the hippo's chances of survival in another herd were very slim, predicting that a dominant male would have killed him.


However, Owen's relationship with the Aldabran tortoise named Mzee, Swahili for old man, may end soon. The sanctuary plans to place Owen with Cleo, a lonely female hippo.

Canadian Man's Phone Bill Costs More Than A BMW M5

Posted by Eric Zeman (eric@zemanmedia.com), Dec 14, 2007 09:30 AM <table align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr> <td>http://i.cmpnet.com/infoweek/spacer.gif</td> <td>
</td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan="2">http://i.cmpnet.com/infoweek/spacer.gif</td> </tr> </tbody></table> Some poor Calgary man thought the $10 unlimited mobile browser plan he subscribed to meant he could tether his phone to his <nobr>laptophttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/3.gif</nobr> (http://www.informationweek.com/blog/main/archives/2007/12/canadian_mans_p.html#) and download movies. So he was rather shocked when he received a phone bill for $85,000 (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/12/13/mobe_bill/) in the mail--more than the price tag of one of Germany's finest sports sedans (http://www.motortrend.com/cars/2008/bmw/m5/pricing/).
If you thought those $3,000 iPhone roaming bills were exorbitant, 22-year-old Piotr Staniaszek of Calgary, Canada, is much worse off. Apparently he recently renewed his phone contract with Canadian network operator Bell Mobility. Along with the new phone, he subscribed to a <nobr>datahttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/3.gif</nobr> (http://www.informationweek.com/blog/main/archives/2007/12/canadian_mans_p.html#) plan. One which he thought was totally unlimited. Turns out that wasn't the case.
I don't know what Staniaszek does for a living, but the report I read said he was bored at work and thought to pass the time, he'd download some movies from the Internet and watch them on his PC. So he tethered the two and used his phone's wireless data capabilities to download high definition movies. This was strictly forbidden in the fine print of his contract--something he obviously didn't read.
About 10 days ago, a $60,000 phone bill arrived at his parent's house. When Staniaszek called to complain, he was told that the total bill had risen to $85,000 because he was being charged by the kilobyte.
In an interview, Staniaszek said, "I told them I wasn't aware that I would be charged for hooking up my phone to the computer. I'm going to try and fight it because I didn't know about the extra charges. Nobody explained any of this to me."
Bell Mobility agreed to reduce the charges to $3,243 in a gesture of goodwill, but that's not enough for Staniaszek. He's vowed to fight the company until the bill is dropped entirely, even though he did download gigabytes worth of movies. Bell Mobility has said that Staniaszek should have known that using his phone as a modem fell outside of the normal data usage expected for a $10-per-month plan.
I don't know about you, but if I am going to spend $85,000 on something, it sure as heck ain't gonna be downloading movies over my phone. This should also be a warning signal to IT managers out there. Make sure your employees can't get themselves into similar trouble by implementing software to block suck downloads.

Sorry to bump this old thread up, but I found a really funny news.

Deputy Chad Taylor from Centerville, Utah has an unusual catch to praise about. His fighting against crime portfolio is now enriched by making a criminal crap his pants. He sure deserves a medal for that.

As reported by dailystar.co.uk, the police said two teens were involved in several car burglaries cars over the weekend. One of the burglars targeted the wrong car, because he instantly found out that an off-duty deputy was sitting inside of it.

"The suspect opened the door, the deputy jumped out. It startled our teenager and, hum, the only way I can put <script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "pub-2364887827571271"; /* AE / News - 300x250, created 12/8/08 */ google_ad_slot = "5521573578"; google_ad_width = 300; google_ad_height = 250; //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"></script><script>window.google_render_ad();</script> it is, he soiled his pants," said Lt. Paul Child of Centerville Police
