Teacher, 29, charged with sexually assaulting schoolboy, 14, after ‘performing sex act on teen pupil’

A teacher has appeared in court accused of sexually assaulting a schoolboy.

Dori Myers, 29, allegedly performed a sex act on the 14-year-old pupil.

Police were called after the boy reportedly told a classmate, who went to bosses at the New York school with the allegation.

Myers, a social studies teacher at The New School for Leadership and the Arts in Kingsbridge, Bronx, was arrested on Friday night.

The married teacher was charged with criminal sexual act in the second degree.

The alleged assault took place in Upper Manhattan on November 1, according to a criminal complaint.

She appeared in court on Saturday morning to deny all the charges, the New York Post reported.

Myers was dressed in a red Marist College sweatshirt and scowled at reporters when she arrived at court.

Prosecutors allege she performed oral sex on the teenager and claim a fellow teacher witnessed Myers massaging the victim.

Judge Laura Drager allowed her to leave custody while she awaits trial.

Her lawyer, Andrew Stoll, told the newspaper: “It just takes one person’s accusation to make an arrest in this town and she’s model citizen who looks forward to clearing her name.”

The paper said the local Department of Education called the allegations “deeply troubling” and said Myers was immediately reassigned “away from students.”

Blind mystic Baba Vanga ‘who predicted 9/11 and Brexit’ has made two world-changing predictions for 2018

A blind mystic who fans claim correctly predicted Brexit, 9/11, the rise of ISIS and the Boxing Daytsunami envisioned two world-changing events happening in 2018.

Conspiracy theorists believe Baba Vanga foretold many natural disasters and global wars before they happened.

The Bulgarian -who died in 1996 aged 85 – left predictions going all the way to the 51st Century – when she said the world would end.

The coming year has two major events in store, according to the woman known as the ‘Nostradamus from the Balkans’.

She said that in 2018 China will become the world’s next “super power”, taking over from the US and “a new form of energy” will be discovered on Venus.

Could these predictions actually come true?

The Parker Solar Probe, named after the solar astrophysicist Eugene Parker, is scheduled to launch in July 2018.

The NASA robotic spacecraft is designed to probe the outer corona of the Sun.

While the craft will not actual land on Venus, it will use the planet’s gravitational force to achieve multiple passes of the Sun.The mission aims to determine the structure and dynamics of the magnetic fields at the sources of solar wind, trace the flow of energy that heats the plasma surrounding the Sun and explore dusty plasma near the star and its influence on solar wind and energetic particle formation.


Mum’s horror after 14-year-old son accidentally spends her entire month’s wages playing FIFA 18 on Playstation leaving them facing bleak Christmas

A mum was left horrified after her 14-year-old son spent her entire month’s wages playing a football computer game.

She had bought the FIFA 18 online game for her son using her debit card, which she says enabled him to purchase ‘points’ while playing.

She claims that after she signed up for the Playstation game online they were both unaware that her card number was stored on the account.

She said she was charged every time her son played the game and she claims there were no alerts warning him they would cost money.

The family from Cork, Ireland, are now facing a bleak Christmas with little money.

And the mother – who wants to remain anonymous – has revealed her son is so upset by what’s happened he hasn’t left his room since last Monday.

The mum discovered the blunder when she went to withdraw money from her bank account.

She was informed that she had insufficient funds and that her entire month’s wages and worse still, a bonus, were gone, reports the Irish Mirror .

The concerned mum, who did not want to be identified said: “I get paid monthly so my pay cheque went in last Friday for four weeks’ wages and they took the whole month’s pay out of the card.

“He just didn’t understand but every ten points was costing him more money. I think you need the points to move players but I am not aware of how it works.

“When purchasing the game or playing it they don’t tell you that this has a cost element. He didn’t have to do anything or click anything to activate my card.

“He never knew that when he was clicking away the money was being taken out of my account.

Speaking to PJ Coogan on Cork’s 96FM on Thursday, she said: “I went down to the bank to get money out.

“I was told I had insufficient funds.

“I was just after being paid and I didn’t understand what was wrong so then I rang the bank.

 “They said PlayStation was constantly moving money from my account.

“It ended up being my month’s pay.

“I contacted PlayStation and they told me that it was an adults’ game.

“I explained he was 14 and he didn’t understand he was playing with money.

“He didn’t have to do anything or click anything to activate my card.

“They said there was nothing they can do. For any parents out there I want them to be aware.

“Maybe there was [a lock or warning system in place] but my 14-year-old son didn’t see it.

“He did not have to put in card details or anything as my card was already registered.

“This was my first Christmas working full time and then to go to your bank account and find it empty with the whole month’s pay and overtime in the buildup to Christmas just gone is horrendous.

“I had to take my son out of school after speaking to the bank so that he could go home and take everything offline as money was still going out of my account.

“He is so upset he is staying in bed. He is withdrawn and is blaming himself. He reckoned he has spoiled Christmas for his family. I can’t even get him to school.

“There is no point in giving out to him because he is punishing himself more than I could ever have imagined.”

Playstation told Mirror Online: “We take the safety and security of our customers’ accounts very seriously, and have a range of industry-leading security measures in place to protect our customers.

“Parental controls, including the creation of PlayStation Network accounts for individual family members, can be used to ensure that purchases are either restricted or preventable.

“It is, however, imperative that all consumers take every precaution to protect their personal details.”


Judge issues chilling warning to parents after teenager who began watching porn aged 12 is jailed for repeatedly raping a child

A judge has urged parents to monitor their children’s Internet activity after a teenager who watched pornography when he was just 12-years-old was jailed for repeatedly raping a child.

William Nicholson, who is now 19, watched explicit adult content when he was just a child and then began abusing a primary school pupil to satisfy his sexual urges aged just 14.

The girl kept her ordeal secret until 2015 where she then told a family friend about what had happened and the police were then called.

Judge Peter Armstrong said that Nicholson, from Darlington, County Durham, may have been acting out scenes from pornography which he had viewed on his Xbox.

He told Teesside Crown Court: ‘One of the remarkable pieces of evidence in the case was that he had started looking at pornography at the age of 12. It almost beggars belief.

‘It is behaviour where it is experimenting or curious and perhaps acting out what he had seen using [the girl] as an object to do that.’

‘Well, it is a warning to parents, generally, to monitor their children’s activities rather than them being left to their own devices in their bedrooms.

‘I can’t believe it didn’t have an effect on him.’

Chris Baker, mitigating, said Nicholson had been heavily influenced by adults from the time he stopped going to school seven years ago.

Judge Armstrong told Nicholson: ‘You admitted during your trail that at the age of 12 you started looking at pornography on the internet.

‘That, I am quite satisfied, had a serious deleterious effect on you so far as your behaviour was concerned.

‘The pre-sentence report says it may well be that your contact with adults as far as work is concerned, and home tutoring, meant that you were in that sort of atmosphere and involved in adult matters far too early in your life.’

Before the trial began, the victim said: ‘I find it hard to trust people. I trust my mum, but I find it hard to tell people personal things.

‘All of this has made me have nightmares. I cry in my sleep, and when I wake up, I feel scared.’

After the trial, she said: ‘When this was happening, I felt really confused. I knew it was wrong, but I didn’t know how to put it into words.

‘Now, I really understand it was rape, and he had no right to do that to me.

‘I’m happy that people have believe me, and the jury believed me.’

Nicholson was sentenced to six years at a young offenders institute after he was found guilty of two charges of rape, attempted rape, two indecent assaults and causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

He was also put on the sex offenders register for life and forbidden to  work with children. He was given an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order was also imposed, prohibiting Nicholson from having unsupervised contact with under-16s and restricting his computer and internet use.


Man with THREE FOOT penis has life-changing surgery to reduce size of his 11lb testicles

Horace Owiti Opiyo, from Kenya, had genitals that were twenty times the average size – meaning he couldn’t walk easily and dropped out of school 

A man has undergone life-saving surgery to reduce the size of his 11lbs testicles and THREE FOOT penis that had grown so large he couldn’t wear normal clothes.

Horace Owiti Opiyo, known as Forence to friends, was left with testicles twenty times the average size after a growth continued to get larger despite surgery to remove it.

The 20-year-old first noticed a cyst on his genitals in 2006 and had surgery in 2007 but the growth came back and his penis grew to almost a metre long, weighing 5kgs.

He dropped out of school because of the condition and was later diagnosed with scrotal elephantiasis.

This can be caused by a mosquito bite injecting larvae into the bloodstream, which then grow into parasitic worms blocking the body’s drainage system and causing swelling.

The condition left Horace, who is from Kibigori, Kenya, in extreme agony and prevented him from living a normal life.

Unable to afford an operation he tried herbal remedies but to no success.

Forence said: “I told my grandmother that I have been infected by a disease, but I’m not sure what it is. It could be a curse. I knew this was not God’s work, but the devil’s.”

In an attempt to help, his neighbour, Duncan Otieno, took photographs and put the story on Facebook.

The post went viral overnight and reached the Kisumu county Governor’s wife, Olivia Ranguma, who asked a doctor to asses Forence’s condition and an ambulance was sent for him straight away.

Doctors at Jaramogioginga Odinga Hospital examined Forence and diagnosed him with Scrotal elephantiasis.

Forence had two operations to reduce the size of his scrotum and reconstruct his penis so that it is usable.

Fortunately, the operation was a success and has changed the 20-year-old’s life.

He now hopes to start a family one day after being told he has functioning testicles.

He said: “When I got up I was surprised that my body was so light. All the heaviness had gone.

“I’m swimming now. I couldn’t go anywhere near the water because of the heaviness of that thing.

“Now I can run and I can play football.

“Now I’m free!”

He added: “I’m trying as much as possible to build myself up so that I can have a wife. But the next step I want to take is to get an education.

“Who knows what will happen in the future?”

Doctor pulls 30 squirming maggots out of OAP’s ear after she makes disturbing discovery

This is the stomach-churning moment an elderly woman had more than 30 maggots pulled out of her ear after it became infested when a fly crawled inside her ear lobe and laid eggs.

Grim footage shows doctors removing one of the wriggling bugs with a pair of tweezers at the Third Xiangya Hospital in Central South University.

The 76-year-old woman had been referred to the ear, nose and throat specialists at Changsha after suffering ear pain and then noticing a maggot crawling out of her ear.

According to the patient’s granddaughter, she had suffered from chronic suppurative otitis media – an inflammatory disease of the middle ear – which causes pus to be discharged.

She never received medical treatment for the condition and experts believe this is what may have attracted the fly to her ear.

About a week before she was admitted to hospital a fly had entered the woman’s ear but she managed to dig it out.

However, four days later it began to hurt and she noticed that maggots had started to fall out.

The infestation of fly larvae was confirmed by a local clinic who then transferred her to the province’s capital for treatement.

Doctor Ma said: “The fly was most likely attracted to the putrid discharge in her ear canal. And then it laid eggs, which hatched into maggots.”

The woman has been scheduled for further surgery.



Woman who was duped in online dating scam and left devastated gets happy ending in uplifting twist

Once upon a time, catfishing was a new and shocking concept.

However, online and app dating has been around for a while now, and catfishing stories have become a regular part of the narrative – in addition to every other annoying dating trend out there.

But Emma Perrier’s experience is a little different.

Namely because, rather than ending in misery, disillusionment and disappointment, it ends happily.

It began in 2015, when Emma, who is from France but lives in the UK, dipped a toe into the murky waters of online dating.

As The Atlantic explained, Emma was newly-single and working long hours as a barista in a City coffee shop, meaning she wasn’t really meeting the sort of man she wanted to date. So, like many an intrepid dater before her, she signed up to a site – in this case, Zoosk.

Things got off to a good start, with the first match she made being the very handsome Ronaldo “Ronnie” Scicluna, a 34-year-old electrician from the West Midlands who said he was Italian.

Except, when Emma messaged him in his purported native tongue, he had no idea what she was saying.

This might have been the first alarm bell, but Ronnie had an explanation. His mum was English and his dad seldom spoke to him in Italian, so there hadn’t been much opportunity to pick it up. It seemed totally plausible, and Emma accepted it.

Their relationship went from strength to strength.

That is, online.

While they enjoyed an intense correspondence – even saying “I love you” to one another – by the six month mark, they’d still not actually met in person.

They were speaking every day and had both deleted their dating profiles, but every time plans were made, Ronnie had an excuse.

Of course, this should have been the huge giveaway, but it in fact took one of the waiters Emma worked with to spell it out for her to do some investigating.

One quick image reverse search on an app revealed the truth, but it took Emma a little longer to uncover it in its entirety.

Ronnie was not a dreamy electrician from the West Midlands. His pictures were actually of a Turkish actor and model called Adem Güzel, and after a long and bizarre confrontation with “Ronnie” during which he accused her of being crazy, it turned out he was Alan Stanley, a 53-year-old builder and decorator.So in September 2016, Emma found Adem and messaged him to warn him that his photos were being used by 53-year-old decorators to catfish.

As it happens, Adem had received quite a few of these messages, as this was not the first time this had happened, and he initially wasn’t going to reply to her.

But then something told him to – and it’s just as well as he did, because their exchange resulted in him coming to London to meet her, their first date, a kiss and now they’re together.

And, in a weird way they have Alan to thank.

Women are being warned to stop using popular vegetable to clean their v-ginas

This so-called cucumber cleanse instructs women to peel the cucumber, then place it, cold, into your vagina before twisting it around for about 20 minutes.

The, er, reasoning behind this advice is that it apparently “helps sanitise and maintain a pleasant odour”, reports The Sun .

Needless to say, qualified medical professionals would urge you to NOT do this.

Firstly, vaginas are self-cleaning. Secondly, you actually put yourself at risk of infections like gonorrhoea and even HIV, by upsetting the natural pH balance of your lady bits.Dr Jen Gunter, a Canadian gynaecologist, warned that “if you have a vagina you should definitely not do this”.

“This idea that some kind of vaginal cleansing is required, be it a peeled cucumber or the ‘feminine washes’ sold at drugstores, is misogyny dressed up as health care and I am having none of it,” she wrote on her blog. 

“Vaginas are not dirty.

“Study after study after study tells us that douches, cleanses, steams, vinegar, pH balancing products, aloe, colloidal silver, garlic or whatever else passing as the vaginal snake oil du jour at best do nothing but have real potential for harming good bacteria or disrupting the mucosal surface.

“Paradoxically, it will also cause odour.”

Ladies, you have been warned. You’re on your own now.

Man left unable to get an erection after being scratched by a CAT and infected with rare disease

Doctors reportedly say the patient, 23, suffered problems with his organ after what was described as invasive cat scratch disease.

It is said to have involved an attack by the cat at his home in Belgium.

The condition identified by BMJ Case Reports is said to be caused by Bartonella henselae, a bacteria found in cats’ mouths and claws.

The man told medics he suffered symptoms including fevers and testiclular pain, The Sun reports.

It was reported Catch Scratch Disease (CSD) is caught by kissing or touching cats with your face.

However, the disease was considered rare with about 4.5 outpatient diagnoses per 100,000 people.

 For the man, the medication was successful and he was cured with antibiotics within a few weeks.

According to The Sun, doctors wrote in the report: “The symptoms quickly vanished and he fully regained his erectile function.

“In this case the patient was unable to provoke erection despite his will even during periods of calm symptoms.


Twelve terrified monkeys ‘die from simultaneous heart attacks after being scared by tiger’ in Indian forest

A dozen monkeys suffered simultaneous heart attacks when they were “scared to death” by a roaring tiger, it has been claimed.

Locals were initially baffled after the monkeys were discovered in a forest clearing in the Kotwali Mohammadi area of north India.

Vets thought that the animals were poisoned and postmortems were carried out.

However, the tests apparently revealed that the primates had all died from heart attacks.

Vets concluded that the only explanation was that the monkeys were scared to death by a big cat.

Vet Dr Sanjeev Kumar said: “It was confirmed in the post-mortem report that the monkeys died due to cardiac arrest.

“The monkeys could have died due to tiger’s roar as tigers often traverse that area.”

Forest department workers found the monkeys on Monday and an upsetting video shows them stuffing the bodies in polythene bags.

Villagers reported tigers are often in the area and were heard roaring at the time of the deaths.


Aliens on at least nine planets beyond solar system could see Earth, scientists claim

Aliens on at least nine planets beyond the solar system could see – and potentially study – Earth, scientists have claimed.

The new research from Queen’s University Belfast offers a whole new angle to exoplanet-hunting, looking at how an alien observer might be able to detect Earth using our own methods.The scientists identified parts of the sky from where various planets in our solar system could be seen passing in front of the sun as they undertake so called “transits”.

Of the thousands of known exoplanets* the team identified 68 worlds where observers would see one or more planets in our solar system transiting the sun.

 Nine of these planets were “ideally” placed to observe transits of the Earth, although none of them are thought to be capable of hosting Earth-type life.They calculated that the smaller rocky planets including Earth would be far more easy to spot than the gas and ice giants Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune that are further from the sun.

The research, conducted alongside the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Germany, was published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society .
