Field trip turned sex trip

Busted for having sex while on a school field trip, four Southwest High School students are now facing some serious consequences.

The four students, two girls and two boys, were part of the Naval ROTC at Southwest High school. The group was in Corpus Christi for a ROTC competition.

“They were suspended for sexual misconduct during a field trip,” says Sharon Woldhagen, with SWISD.

The district tells News 4 WOAI the students admitted to having sex at the hotel they were staying in, while in Corpus. Woldhagen says the incident happened sometime after midnight, because the last bed check was at 11:30 p.m.

And where is the news in that?


Top quickie spots

Outside the bedroom, the toilet is the next likely spot for Malaysians to engage in sex, according to the 2005 Durex Global Sex Survey.

Of the 5,409 Malaysians who responded to the survey, 44% claimed they have had sex in the loo. The second and third favoured spots are the car (38%) and parents' bedroom (24%).

The survey, now in its ninth year, also revealed that Malaysians are quite adventurous in pursuing their sexual escapades. Malaysians are also losing their virginity at an average age of 19 years, compared with 19.3 last year and 20 in 2001.

About 67% of respondents said they only received sex education when they were 15 or older. When they want to avoid sex, the top excuse used by Malaysians is “I'm tired” (32.6%).

I am not sure, but it could very well be that some cheerleaders read this article too....

Dead prostitute gets free bus ride

A man carrying a suitcase which contained the torso of a murdered prostitute caught a bus, the Old Bailey has heard.

Daniel Archer, from Poole, Dorset, then dumped the case into Regent's Canal, north London, the prosecution said.

The 53-year-old is accused of murdering Nasra Ismail, after having sex with her, then cutting up her body and storing the parts in a freezer.

Mr Archer denies murdering Miss Ismail, aged 27, in March last year.

Jurors were told how Mr Archer had picked up the Somalian woman at King's Cross and taken her back to his brother's flat.


Pictures make you drunk!

The link between alcohol and aggression is well studied, but did you know that you don't even need to drink the stuff for it to have an effect on you? According to research to be published in Psychological Science, just looking at pictures of alcohol is enough to increase aggression.

Researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia ran experiments on 246 college students, AdAge.com reports.

If so, then why is she just laughing? Or is this her way to act aggressive?

Drug-sniffing dog got overdosed!

Basko took a bite out of crime -- but it cost him his life.

The 5-year-old drug-sniffing German shepherd died Friday after he bit into a bag of cocaine during an annual certification search in Riverside County, according to Sgt. Jim Banach with the Redondo Beach Police Department.

Basko had successfully completed the search and was in his partner's car for the ride home when he had a seizure. The partner, Officer Ken Greenleaf, rushed Basko to a nearby animal clinic, where the dog died before he could be treated, Banach said.


Aussies want more!

Australians are having sex more often with more people but for more than 40 per cent of us that's still not enough.

We have sex on average 108 times a year or once every three days, according to the 2005 Durex Global Sex Survey released today. But Aussies take serious risks with unsafe sex.

Sixty-one per cent of those surveyed admitted having unprotected sex without knowing their partner's sexual history.

"It's alarming," Durex marketing manager Carla McCarthy said.

"With the amount of people contracting sexually transmitted infections on the increase, it is vital that we embark on effective sexual education campaigns."

On the lighter side, Australians are keen on the great outdoors.

Burning down France

Saturday night was the 10th day of the spreading youth riots that have much of France in flames -- and it was the worst night ever since the first riot erupted in a suburban Paris ghetto of low-income housing, with 1295 vehicles -- from private cars to public buses -- burned last night, a huge jump from the 897 set afire the previous evening. And, for the first time, the violence born in the suburban ghettos last night invaded the center of Paris -- some 40 vehicles were set alight in Le Marais (the pricey home to the most famous gay ghetto in Paris), around the Place de la Republique nearby, and in the bourgeois 17th arrondissement, only a stone's throw from the dilapidated ghetto of the Goutte d'Or in the 18th arrondissement.


Bicyclist racing with train -- dead!

A man died on his bicycle Saturday night when he tried to beat a train to a railroad crossing and was rammed by the locomotive, a law enforcement official said.

Guy Merkle, 39, was ridding his green Mongoose bicycle south on North Dixie Highway toward the rail crossing at East Oakland Park Boulevard, said Liz Calzadilla-Fiallo, of the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Director includes masturbation in auditions

An acclaimed French film director credited with discovering Vanessa Paradis appeared in a Paris court yesterday accused by four young actresses of forcing them to masturbate as part of their screen tests.

Jean-Claude Brisseau denies the charges of sexual harassment and sexual assault, insisting in newspaper interviews that the "erotic auditions", held between 1996 and 2001 for his 2002 feature Choses Secrètes, were justified artistically and "indispensable" to his work.

Uhmmm, Coralie Revel and Sabrina Seyvecou both starred in the movie. I wonder if they are the ones pressing charges or did they not see anything wrong in masturbating in front of someone old enough to be their grandfather?

The baby prophecy!

A rural community is convinced that a newborn boy was immediately able to talk and warn of an ill omen before he and his mother died. Some residents in Giyani and Bolobedu are now wearing strips of mielie bags around their arms and legs to protect themselves from the baby's prophecy. "I'm not sure if it's true but people are wearing the rags to try prevent some disaster in the area," said Giyani resident Stella Xitsunge. The baby is said to have been born at Nkhensani hospital on Monday and prophesied to shocked nurses. Spokesperson for Limpopo's department of health and social development, Phuti Seloba, confirmed he'd seen people wearing the rags but dismissed the incident as a rumour. Thanks Sjarko

Buy house get a free wife

A woman in Alburquerque is selling a 95-year-old home, fully furnished, that also includes a wife, according to a Local 6 News report.

Deborah Hale, 48, said she decided to kill two birds with one stone and add herself to an eBay auction for the $600,000 home located in Denver.

I've seen a lot of men, why not give this a try?" Hale said. The home has three bedrooms, a tanning bed and a hot tub.

Hale said she was married once before and is looking for a new potential Prince Charming. However, she said the offer of a wife with the house is non-binding. Bidding on the home and woman ends Valentine's Day.

A public relations firm is helping Hale sort through the applicants.


The taste test...

One day a teacher had a taste test with her students. She picked a little boy to do the first test. She blindfolded him, put a Hershey kiss in his mouth and asked,

"Do you know what it is?"

"No, I don't," said the little boy.

"Okay, I'll give you a clue. It's the thing your daddy wants from your Mom before he goes to work."

Suddenly, a little girl at the back of the room yelled, "Spit it out! It's a piece of ass!"

When Tyra Banks met Tyra Banxxx...

Supermodel Tyra Banks invited to her new daytime talk show the pornographic movie actress who calls herself Tyra Banxxx. Banks, 32, confessed she was shocked when she saw the cover of Xtreme magazine, where the fake Tyra posed dressed to look just like her.

As she says: "For a second I was like, 'Did they put my head on someone else's body?' I thought that it really did look like me. The first thing that went through my head... It wasn't anger, it was more of a curiosity, and an empathy like, 'Where does this girl come from... And what led her to this?'"

During the show, Banxxx, whose real name is Alana, has agreed to renounce to this name, claiming she never intended to offend her heroine.

Who's hotter: Tyra Banks or Tyra Banxxx?

Why you should not parade those lottery ticket...

A 59-year-old Bayonne man's luck apparently ran out last week, when he was mugged of a $5,000 scratch-off ticket and $300 in cash, police said.

The man, a resident of East 25th Street, went to the Big Apple Restaurant and Lounge on Broadway in Bayonne on Friday and told customers and employees he'd won the prize and had the scratch-off ticket with him.

"He was all excited and showing people the ticket," said the restaurant's owner, Vinny Bottino. "He's a nice guy and everybody was happy for him because he was someone who won money that we knew could use it."

Seriously, there are people who find riding an escalator in a shopping mall rather boring. If you are one of those people, you should try to have a little more fun on them. These girls thought of something and did that. They don't having boring escalator rides anymore.

Fecal pastry toppings

A Dallas cab driver is in big trouble for getting caught on tape sprinkling dried feces on pastries.

49-year-old Behrouz Nahidmobarekeh is on trial for allegedly throwing fecal matter on pastries at a Fiesta grocery store.

Police said they found a pile of human feces by his bed.

He would dry it, either by microwave or just letting it sit out and grate it up with a cheese grater and then sprinkle it at the store, officials said.


Fly 747 Disney style

I have no idea if these jumbojets are still flying with these paintings, but they did look cool. When JAL turned 50 they had 6 Boeings 747 painted with Disney characters. Does anybody know if these are still this way? And are there more airliners having cartoon characters painted on their airplanes?

Dead man fined for parking!

A Melbourne council has explained how one of its parking officers issued a fine to a man who had been dead in his parked car for several days.

Maroondah City Council parking officers stuck the fine on the windscreen of the man's car on Wednesday at the Croydon Market shopping centre in Melbourne's outer eastern suburbs.

A police spokeswoman confirmed that police discovered the deceased man, 71, yesterday and found a parking ticket on the windscreen of his car. He had been reported missing to police nine days ago and was known to be seriously ill.

Maroondah mayor Paul Denham said in a statement today that the parking officer had not noticed the man when he attached the parking fine to the windscreen.


Another Jackson secret revealed!

A "fresh scandal is threatening to engulf the superstar Jackson clan with reports youngest sister Janet has a secret teenage daughter called Renee.

The singer's former brother-in-law, Young DeBarge, whose brother James was married to Jackson from 1984 to 1985, claims Renee now 18 was sent away to live with the star's eldest sister Rebbie.
"James and the Jackson family kept everything real close, real tight," DeBarge said during an interview on Friday with New York City urban radio station Hot 97.

"No one really knew how it was working out until things kind of surfaced. I think there's a little despondency.

"She hasn't really revealed that, but I'm sure that there's some feelings there.

"It's only natural that you wonder about what is and how it's come to be that way."

""There's no telling what (Janet Jackson) is telling her."

First transgender pop group!

They strut their stuff and shake their booties as well as any pop band worldwide, and their infectious dance tunes are taking the Asian music scene by storm.

But in one crucial respect Lady, the hottest music act to come out of South Korea in years, are not your average girl group. They may have looks that many women would die for - but none of these four singers was born as a lady.

Shinae, 29, Sahara, 25, Binu, 22, and Yoona, 21, have all undergone sex change operations and used their new, curvaceous physiques to propel them to stardom. Earlier this year, to a frenzied fanfare of television appearances, newspaper interviews and even the odd nude photo shoot, Lady became Korea's first transgender pop group.


Infrared See-Through Filter!

A camera lense that allows one to see through clothes and other hard surfaces has been introduced by a US Company.

The lense that could well result in it being banned because of its perve potential is called the "Infrared See-Through Filter PF". The PF is a special optical device that helps to visually penetrate an object's surface in order to view whatever lies below. The PF makes it possible for you to see images that are normally invisible to the human eye. It sounds like science-fiction but it isn't, this new product has been developed using newly developed advanced optical technology.

Kaya Special Optics have specialised in manufacturing special optical devices for the past 30 years and their new lense is set to be a big hit with perves and security companies. The 52mm Infra See through PF4 lense has to be fitted to either a digital still or video camera. The manufacturers claim that the Infrared See-Through Filter PF can't totally penetrate all surfaces but it can provide a high degree of "see-through".

The "Is She Hot" contest

So your girlfriend dreams of being the next Cindy Crawford. That isn't as hot as if she dreams of being the next Jenna Jameson (just for you), but at least she wants to look really, really good so she'll get the attention she craves. You turn into a drooling dog when you see a really hot girl walking down the street so you'll feel 10-feet-tall when you walk into a place with a hottie on your arm.

Share your honey with the rest of the world -- at least the looking part. Whether you want to enter your girlfriend or wife in the "Is She Hot?" contest or just want some nice pics for your private enjoyment, you can learn to shoot her like one of the pros. Well, sorta.


Murder by a red G-string...

A woman wore nothing but a red G-string when she attacked and killed her boyfriend's estranged wife who had just found them in bed together, a court was told yesterday.

Kathleen Schroeder, 43, appeared in the Brisbane Magistrate's Court charged with murdering Narelle Nix-Barclay, also 43, in February. That charge was dismissed after argument from defence counsel Peter Shields and she was committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court on the lesser count of manslaughter.

The committal hearing was told that Mrs Nix-Barclay discovered Schroeder and her estranged husband, Scott Nix-Barclay, in bed at his Wynnum West home and began lashing out and screaming abuse.

The two women began pulling each other's hair and then the dispute, also involving a naked Mr Nix-Barclay, moved out on to the front lawn of the home.

Grieving father accused of witchcraft got nearly stoned to death

About 22 people have been arrested for apparently trying to stone a grieving father after his daughter's funeral on Saturday.

His daughter died when she drove into a tree, but the mob accused her father of using witchcraft to cause her death, said superintendent Ailwei Mushavhanamadi of Vhembe police in Limpopo on Monday.

The mob was part of the mourners who had attended the woman's funeral at NwaXinyama village near Makhado.

They even went to the dead woman's home for food afterwards, but then started gossiping about whether she'd been bewitched.


Celibacy kills!

Men who cannot have sex are as much at risk of having a heart attack as smokers and diabetics.

Erectile dysfunction may be a sign that coronary artery disease is developing, even in men without the typical risk factors.
Researchers said the findings were alarming because almost 70 per cent of men suffering problems with erections do not seek medical advice. They said erectile dysfunction should be added to the list of risk factors for heart disease alongside high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and smoking.

"Erectile dysfunction should be part of a cardiovascular risk assessment," said Emilio Chiurlia, a researcher from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia in Modena, Italy, who conducted the study.

The researchers studied 70 men with erectile dysfunction and 73 control subjects who had similar coronary risk factors.

Moms want Porn Novel assignment to be banned

A special panel will meet in Volusia County Monday to begin deliberations about a book assigned to students that at least one woman calls pornography.

In August, the mother of an 11th-grade student in Deland, Vikki Reed, said a 1992 novel, "Cracking India" by Bapsi Sihwal, given to her daughter to read by a Deland High School teacher is not suitable for students and should be banned.

The novel details historic events in India in the 1940s through the eyes of a young girl. However, Reed said it discusses oral sex and should not be assigned to students.

"The real issue is a 9-year-old girl having or being introduced to oral sex by her cousin who is going through puberty," Reed said. "To me, that is totally inappropriate. I don't know where learning about India would involve learning about oral sex."

Reed's complaint is based on four pages of the 289-page book.


Rape suspect uses other men's sperm to confuse police

A 48-year-old Frenchman who is accused of rape collected other men's sperm from used condoms and left traces at the crime scene in order to confuse police, justice officials said on Thursday.

Jean-Luc Cayez, who worked as doorman of an apartment block at Soisy-sur-Seine south of Paris, told police that he extracted the condoms from the building's rubbish bins and then froze the contents.

Cayez has confessed to the rape and murder of Audrey Jouannet (24), who was found dead in her apartment in the building last month, officials said.

Assigned Indian book claimed to have oral sex content

A special panel will meet in Volusia County Monday to begin deliberations about a book assigned to students that at least one woman calls pornography.

In August, the mother of an 11th-grade student in Deland, Vikki Reed, said a 1992 novel, "Cracking India" by Bapsi Sihwal, given to her daughter to read by a Deland High School teacher is not suitable for students and should be banned.

Goliath beetle manual for beetle hobbyists

The Goliath beetle, Goliathus goliatus, is among the largest and most spectacular of all African cetoniine scarabs. An inhabitant of tropical forests, it ranges across much of the continent's equatorial zone, and has the widest distribution of any species in its genus. In recent years, various Goliathus species (especially G. goliatus) have become more popular with beetle hobbyists as a better understanding of the particular needs of these beetles has been gained.

Although by no means one of the easier cetoniines to rear in captivity, with a bit of patience and effort, it is certainly possible to maintain Goliathus through multiple generations.

Although little appears to be known precisely about the biology of Goliathus in the wild, through considerable trial and error I have been able to formulate a captive rearing method for G. goliatus which has enabled me to keep the species in continuous culture since May of 1999, as well as produce adults which are of comparable size to many wild collected specimens.

Cincinnati woman to face tax evation case

A woman who hasn't paid a $1.16 income tax bill to this Cincinnati suburb faces a stiff penalty — up to 18 months in jail and $4,000 in fines.

City officials say Deborah Combs hasn't filed city income tax returns for five years. Combs says she has been mostly unemployed since 2000 and didn't realize she had to file the returns until the city notified her in February about the violation.

By that time, Combs owed $200 in late fees — $50 for each year she didn't file a return.

"I don't know how they could charge me the fees if I didn't owe anything," Combs said. Loveland officials say everyone is required to file an annual return, regardless of income level.

Bulgarian policemen stole John Beyrle's phone

Two Bulgarian border policemen caught red-handed after stealing a mobile telephone belonging to U.S. ambassador John Beyrle could face up to 10 years in prison, officials said on Monday.

The two took the expensive telephone after Beyrle left it by an X-ray machine at Varna airport, where they worked.

They denied having seen the phone when the ambassador called to enquire about it, but the hi-tech gadget's inbuilt tracking system led to its eventual location in one of the men's pockets.


Daily newspaper accused of insulting Muslims

Daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten is facing accusations that it deliberately provoked and insulted Muslims by publishing twelve cartoons featuring the prophet Mohammed.

The newspaper urged cartoonists to send in drawings of the prophet, after an author complained that nobody dared to illustrate his book on Mohammed. The author claimed that illustrators feared that extremist Muslims would find it sacrilegious to break the Islamic ban on depicting Mohammed.

Love is in the air in the office!

The recent public revelations by a municipal bureaucrat about her inter-office romance with her second-in-command don’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s ever worked in an office. Office romances, experts say, are a fact of life in a world where men and women work side by side many hours a week. “Romances at work are inevitable, particularly with more women participating in the workforce and with people working long hours,” said Carol McKeen, associate professor at Queen’s University’s business school who teaches courses on gender issues and management. “People don’t have as much time outside of work for social lives, and in fact work is the No. 1 place you find your life partner.” In a 2005 U.S. survey by Vault Inc., 58 per cent of employees said they have been involved in an office romance. That number was up from 46 per cent in a report two years earlier. Vault is an on-line career information company. The survey was based on 610 responses from industries across the United States.

Month after month, "that Jesus-cop show" was a benchmark of quality writing, acting, and tech. It proved once and for all that Jesus doesn't have to be hack... as long as you're damn good at it. But when Washington, DC's Austin Bragg took a risk and slowed things down in the sixth episode, the audience turned its collective back on Christ. Woe betide them.

Internet addiction in China

The internet is taking China by storm, with millions of people logging on in record numbers and web cafes busier than ever.

Rising personal wealth means more people are able to buy computers or pay to go online. The vast majority are young people using the net to chat or play games.

But behind the boom, there is a downside.

Wang Yiming, 21, is a self-confessed internet addict, one of a growing number in China. He used to spend hours online each day, often going without food or sleep. His face is drawn and sallow


Alcatraz escape record set by a 9 year old

A nine-year-old boy has succeeded where hardened criminals have failed by successfully swimming across the freezing and shark-infested waters between San Francisco's Alcatraz prison and the shore.

Schoolboy Johnny Wilson has become the youngest person ever to swim the 2.2-kilometre stretch of water between the notorious prison, which is set on an island, and the West Coast city of San Francisco.

US television station KCBS reports Johnny completed the daring swim in one hour and eight minutes - seven minutes faster than his coach had predicted.

Blood-sucking parents

Black magic may have driven a Cambodian couple to bite off their daughter's thumb nails and suck her blood, officials said Sunday.

Chheng Chhorn, 46, and Srun Yoeung, 37, attacked their 12-year-old child before dawn on Thursday while she was still asleep, biting off her thumb nails and a small part of her nose to drink her blood, said Keo Norea Phy, a police official in Kampong Cham province where the incident occurred.

Neighbors rushed to the couple's house and rescued the girl after hearing her screams, he said.

After treatment at a hospital in Kampong Cham, about 50 miles east of Phom Penh, the girl was placed in the custody of other villagers. Relatives had taken her parents to a black magic healer to chase away the evil spirit that was believed to have possessed them, the police official said.

How lucky are you?

In 1984 an Ohio man put together an astounding run on the television game show Press Your Luck. He did so by memorizing the sequences by which the various prize squares lit up on the game board, allowing him to time his button presses to coincide with the lights' stopping on the most advantageous squares.

By hitting 35 such squares in a row, he was able to accumulate the largest win in the history of that show, and he did it all in under an hour. When the effort became too fatiguing, he passed his remaining spins to another contestant rather than risk losing his accumulated winnings to a mistimed press of the plunger.

Divine intervention!

President George W Bush told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq - and create a Palestinian State, a new BBC series reveals.

In Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs, a major three-part series on BBC TWO (at 9.00pm on Monday 10, Monday 17 and Monday 24 October), Abu Mazen, Palestinian Prime Minister, and Nabil Shaath, his Foreign Minister, describe their first meeting with President Bush in June 2003.

Nabil Shaath says: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"

Abu Mazen was at the same meeting and recounts how President Bush told him: "I have a moral and religious obligation. So I will get you a Palestinian state."

Nicky and Jessica calls it quits!

It is certainly not the first time rumors are going on about Jessica Simpson wanting a divorce, but maybe this time it is the real thing.

Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are waiting to make an official announcement later in the month that they call it quits (at the appropriate career opportunity, we’re sure), but according to Us Weekly’s scoop — kept so under wraps that employees were not allowed to receive their advance issues yesterday, presumably for fear that People might rape and pillage the story — the marriage has been dead for some time. Well, duh.


Booze up Superman!

After a long day of crime fighting and foiling dumb bank robbers, Superman hits the bar for a few drinks. UB has a few questions about this classic scene from Superman III. First off if you're the bartender do you charge Superman? He's sitting there with the bottle, pouring his own shots...Does Superman even carry money? Second, what's with the other drunks in the bar. How long have they been there? Are they so drunk they don't notice, or care that Superman is getting hammered a few stools away? And how many drinks does it take for Superman to get drunk? Does he have Super-tolerance?

He then kept the body in the family home in Kadappa district, until his death after a long illness on Saturday.

Neighbours say Mr Gafoor, was intensely attached to his mother, refusing to bury her according to Muslim customs.

Learn to keep out of the way!

A clown in the operating room may relax anxious children who are about to undergo surgery but the entertainer has to learn to keep out of the way, Italian researchers said.

A study of 40 children between four months and three years old who were accompanied by at least one parent prior to minor surgery found having a clown present significantly reduced anxiety levels for both child and parent.

Three out of five children suffer anxiety before surgery, according to the report published in the journal Pediatrics.

Clowns succeeded in distracting the children until the administration of anaesthesia but apparently annoyed doctors and nurses.
