Man Stabbed 9 Times By Cat-caller Harassing His Girlfriend

31yr old Ben Schwartz is seriously injured after suffering 9 stab
wounds from a catcaller who was harassing his girlfriend.

SF Gate reports:

Ben Schwartz, 31, was seriously injured Saturday morning while walking
home from a gathering with his girlfriend and another friend,
authorities said. Near the intersection of Larkin and Ellis streets at
about 4:45 a.m., Schwartz asked a man who had been catcalling his
girlfriend to stop.

Daniela Saavedra, a friend, said that the group had passed the man
twice before and that he had catcalled Schwartz's girlfriend each

"All he said was, 'Can you please just stop?'" Saavedra said. "The man
then sort of trailed behind them, and that's when he attacked."

The man stabbed Schwartz nine times in the back, face, neck and arms,
puncturing a lung, Saavedra said. She said gashes on his arms required
about 60 stitches each, while the cuts to his back just missed his
spinal cord.

The suspect hopped into a nearby silver sedan and got away. Police are
still searching for him.

Saavedra said Schwartz is always looking out for people. In February,
as reported in The Chronicle, he went out of his way to buy a bicycle
on the street that he thought was stolen, then searched for its
rightful owner. The owner, a freelance photographer for The Chronicle,
had been desperately searching for it when Schwartz contacted him.

"I've had friends get their cars broken into, smashed-in windows,
stolen laptops, stolen cell phone — there's nothing I can do a lot of
those times," Schwartz said in February. "But this way, it was easy.
It was safe, and it got him his bike back. … I just wanted to do
somebody a solid for once."

"He definitely sticks up for women, for anyone really," Saavedra said.
"If you're his friend, you're his friend for life, and I've watched
him just support many friends through many hard times. He's just so
kindhearted, and you can see that in everything that he does."

Schwartz, who lives in the Tenderloin, is an advertising student at
the Art Institute of California and a server at Crustacean on Nob
Hill. He has been released from the hospital, Saavedra said, but is
still recovering and in a lot of pain.

"It's really hard to see how hard he's worked to be in school and to
have it all crash down suddenly," she said. "He was so close to
finishing school. He was doing amazing. I'm not sure when he knows
he'll get back to school or work right now."

Schwartz's friends have set up a GoFundMe page in a bid to support him.

Thank God he's alive. He has a good heart.
That suspect needs to be found.

Married Police Couple Are Burglars by Day?!

Talk about working two jobs!
Two married San Diego police officers have admitted doing drug deals
and breaking into homes. What?!

According to NBC Los Angeles:

Bryce Charpentier, 32, and Jennifer Charpentier, 41, admitted
Wednesday to selling and furnishing a narcotic substance, possession
of a firearm by an addict, conspiracy to commit a burglary and
conspiracy to commit a crime: possession and sale of a controlled
As a result, the two resigned from the SDPD, effective Wednesday.

"Both of these individuals will have to face the consequences of their
actions, which have diminished the great work our officers do every
day to serve our City," said SDPD Chief Shelley Zimmerman in a

They are scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 30, and they each face up
to seven years and eight months in prison.

In addition to pleading guilty, they have waived their 4th Amendment
search and seizure rights, which means law enforcement can search them
at any time.

The officers' change of plea comes two days after new charges were
filed against the couple, accusing them of stealing prescription
medication from their parent, burglarizing a home while on the clock
as officers and leading a distribution chain.

Bryce, a six-year veteran of the SDPD, and Jennifer, an 18-year
veteran, were arrested in June during a San Diego County Sheriff's
Department narcotics investigation.

Suspected of being addicted to opiates, both officers were initially
charged with selling and furnishing a controlled narcotic substance
and possession of a firearm by an addict.

Search warrants say Jennifer got seven different drugs in 71
prescriptions from seven separate doctors and then traveled to 17
pharmacies to fill them. Bryce is accused of going as far as Oakhurst
near Yosemite to fill 79 prescriptions from six different doctors.

Then this week, a new complaint shed more light on the accusations against them.

In it, investigators quote text conversations between the married
couple that outline their search for drugs they refer to as "V."

One alleged victim was Jennifer's mother. During her visit to their
home, Bryce texted his wife he was coming back and pulling into the
driveway. At that point, Jennifer texted she was taking her mother
into the backyard, presumably to distract her while Bryce took
prescription medication from her.

The final text from the conversation is from Bryce, telling Jennifer
that he placed "V" for her in a candle, the complaint says.
Less than a month later, Bryce texted his wife that he got "a decent
amount" during a visit to his mother-in-law's, according to

A separate incident described in the complaint involves a victim
identified as "M.B."

According to the complaint, M.B. locked himself in his own bedroom on
Jessica's request, while Bryce and another officer came into his home
to use the restroom. The given excuse was that the officer did not
want M.B. to see him in his undercover clothes, the complaint says.

M.B. later found out that his legally prescribed medication was stolen.

The complaint says in January 2014, Bryce and Jennifer had offered to
take over an existing hydrocodone distribution network in the county.
They are accused of making deliveries while their child was with them.

According to prosecutors, the couple was found with a substantial
amount of hydrocodone in their possession and was seen completing at
least two transactions within a matter of hours.

Bad Cops!

British Man Lived With Tapeworm in His Brain for 4yrs!

Eew! This is really creepy.
A 50yr old British Man had been having memory problems not knowing a
1cm parasite had found a home in the right side of his brain!

How did it get there? (still having goose-bumps)

This worm can get into the system when someone eats infected food or
through some Chinese therapy for sore eyes that involves "a raw frog".

According to Mail online:

Dr Effrossyni Gkrania-Klotsas, study author from the department of
infectious disease at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, said: "We
did not expect to see an infection of this kind in the UK, but global
travel means that unfamiliar parasites do sometimes appear."

Writing in the Genome Biology journal, scientists revealed that the
patient went to hospital in 2008 suffering from headaches, seizures,
altered smell ability, memory flashbacks and problems, plus increasing
pain on his right-hand side.

Over the next four years he was tested for diseases including HIV,
tuberculosis, lime disease and syphilis after MRI scans showed lesions
in his brain.

Scientists at St Thomas' Hospital in London finally diagnosed his
affliction after taking a biopsy of his brain.

The tiny tapeworm, Spirometra erinaceieuropaei, was identified by a
team of scientists led by Dr Hayley Bennett, from the Wellcome Trust
Sanger Institute, which mapped its genome.

It has only been reported 300 times in the last 60 years, the
scientists said. It is rare but most commonly found in South East
Asia, China and Japan.


Woman Number 8, Angela Leslie, Accuses Bill Cosby of Sexual Assault

The naked Cosby was lying in wait before the 1992 ambush of
model-actress Angela Leslie, a beauty who says she was targeted after
sending the comedian a letter and photograph.

"The main thing I want is for people to know him for who he really
is," Leslie told the Daily News on Thursday. "He's not this dad of

After a driver delivered her to the hotel, she checked into her room
before Cosby summoned Leslie to his place. When she spoke about her
career aspirations, Cosby called for an impromptu audition.

"If you want to act, show me what you've got. Pretend you're
intoxicated," she recalled he demanded.

The egotistical comedian then poured Leslie a stiff drink and told her
to act like she was blasted on booze.

"I couldn't drink it," she recounted. "I tasted it and put it down.
Then he asked me to go into the bathroom and wet my hair. . . . I
walked back out, and he had removed his clothing and gotten into bed."

Cosby began rubbing against the actress before pouring lotion into her
palm and pulling her hand under the blankets.

"With his hand on top of mine, he had me massage his penis," she said.
"He masturbated with my hand. I wasn't pulling back. I was in shock."

She now assumes that the cocktail was probably dosed with something to
knock her out.

She recalled that Cosby quickly tired of her — "I didn't drink the
alcohol, and maybe since I didn't pass out, he decided to get rid of

The despondent actress spent the rest of her Vegas stay alone.

"I felt so used," she said. "I felt that he didn't get what he wanted,
and he threw me out. . . . He didn't make me feel special in any way.
He said, 'Come here, put your hand here, do this.' "

The allegations from Leslie boosted the number of Cosby accusers to
eight as the four-time Emmy winner continues to remain mum about the
seamy allegations.

What's up with all these allegations Bill? And why are these stories
just coming out?
This is really terrible to hear.

Ryan Gosling Refuses to be People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive"

In the past few years, Gosling's fans have voiced their anger that
their favorite movie star has been snubbed in favor of Bradley Cooper,
Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and now this year's cover star, Chris

While Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp have scored the highly
coveted cover more than once, Gosling's fan base is upset that the
"Lars and the Real Girl" star hasn't even been honored a single time.

But according to an insider, that's due to the fact that Gosling
doesn't want to wear the "Sexiest Man Alive" crown.

"They tried a few times, especially during his huge year in 2011,"
said an insider who was privy to the cover negotiations. Gosling's
team reportedly also "squashed" efforts to discuss putting the star on
the cover.

Okay, He doesn't want it so don't bother him. Don't even know what the
award does it improve his life?

Cover Girl For Prada Found Dead In Her Bath

A top model who appeared as a cover girl for Prada, L'Oreal and Elle
has been found dead in her bath.

Katerina Netolicka, 26, was discovered slumped in the tub at the home
she shared with ice-hockey player boyfriend Jakub Petruzalek, 29.

Netolicka's body was found by her brother in the property in the Czech

Her boyfriend was out of the country at the time taking part in a
match in Russia, where he plays for ice hockey club Avtomobilist

The couple had been together for five years.

After going to the apartment and failing to get an answer when he

Friends of the model, who began her modelling career in 2004 and was
also known for kickboxing after winning the Czech Championships last
month, say she was prone to depression.

A fellow model who lived with her in New York seven-years-ago but who

two totally different people lived inside her.

"One minute she was very happy, almost ecstatic. Then sometimes she
was depressed and used to self-harm."

But another friend, Adrian Smrcka, said: "I really don't know what
could have happened.

"Maybe she got a spasm after kickbox training, or maybe it was a stroke.

"I know she had stopped self-harming and was very happy with her boyfriend."

Grieving fans and friends have now taken to the model's Facebook to
express their shock and sadness.

A 27-year-old robbery suspect has revealed that he usually had sex
with his dogs for spiritual powers before going for any robbery
operation in Lagos State, western Nigeria.

The suspect, Bala Yayah, said his success in most of his robbery

Rugby Player, Anthony Hughes Commits Suicide After Fiancee Ends Relationship

A 30-year old Rugby league player of Wigan, Greater Manchester,
Anthony Hughes has committed suicide shortly after his fiancée of four
years called off their engagement.

His friends have described him has a fun loving man, who loved all and
was loved by all, but the only problem he had was depression. Before
finally succeeding to take his life now, Hughes was caught some time
ago by the Police trying to snuff life out of himself with a tie.

Sadly, his fiancée who 'made' him take his life in this last suicide
attempt, said the major reason why she left him after four years was
because of this same thing- Depression. Her words;

"We had our problems as people do. He did have down periods and up
periods with the depression which we worked through.

"There was a strain because of his problems and around the end of May
we decided to have a trial separation where I moved back to my
parents' house.

"Around July 6 I decided the relationship couldn't continue. I still
saw him but he didn't take it well at all. I saw him and he was really

"He didn't go to work that week and he was really down but I stayed
with him on Monday 7 then went to work on the Tuesday.

"He was still upset and wasn't going to work. During that day I
received texts from him and some of those stated he intended to harm

"He also threatened to kill himself during the texts. I didn't think
he was being serious.

"I saw him on Wednesday July 9 and he seemed a lot more positive. He
text me at six o'clock the next morning and said he had been up all
night and it was as if he finally accepted the relationship was over.

"He was apologising, saying 'I'm sorry for everything'. Looking back,
it seems he had made the decision - but he wasn't making threats like
he had been.

"He rang me at about 12.20pm when I was at work. We spoke for about a
minute and I said I would ring him back later.

"He paused for a while and said 'bye' and that was it. I tried to ring
him as soon as I could but couldn't get hold of him.

"He was very troubled by depression but from around November to May he
had made lots of progress and was mostly back to his usual self - but
when we had a falling-out he went right back down to rock-bottom."

His mom also explains what she knows;

''He was the perfect son. He was very active and enjoyed sports,
especially rugby league. In his job he helped a lot of young people
and found it very rewarding.

"His depression started around the time he broke up with his son's
mum. He became more withdrawn, his work suffered.

"Before that he never felt sad at any time, he couldn't process that
feeling. He was happy-go-lucky and succeeded in everything he did but
then everything just turned upside down for him."

"He and Charlotte were planning to be married but his last bout of
depression came on so severely. I don't think any of us could see it

"He had been getting on with his life. He came to me and it had been
going on because he and Charlotte had split up which had been brought
on with his depression.

"He came to see me and told me he was going to do it. He told me he
was going to kill himself.

"We had arranged an appointment with the mental health crisis team for
the earliest time we could. My last contact with him was a text on the
day he died where he asked me not to go to his address."

Is this a case of carelessness on the part of family and friends?

"School Is Overrated"- Willow and Jayden Smith

Going through Willow(14) and Jayden Smith's(16) interview on New York
Times just makes me wonder...On what "thinking plane are these teens

It definitely will not be unconnected to their upbringing in
Scientology. I also remember their parents, Will and Jayda, say they
don't interfere with their children's lives. Their parenting style
leaves the children to make decisions themselves.

Here are a few of their thoughts that caught my attention:

What are you searching for in those pieced-together moments?

JADEN: Honestly, we're just trying to make music that we think is
cool. We don't think a lot of the music out there is that cool. So we
make our own music. We don't have any song that we like to listen to
on the P.C.H. by any other artist, you know?

WILLOW: That's what I do with novels. There're no novels that I like
to read so I write my own novels, and then I read them again, and it's
the best thing.

JADEN: Willow's been writing her own novels since she was 6.

How does fashion relate to what you do?

JADEN: Willow just dropped a song ("Cares"), let me quote the lyrics:
"I do not care what people say." We both don't really care. I like to
wear things that I make, but I throw it on as though I was throwing on
anything. It looks cool, sometimes.

WILLOW: I like to go to places with my high-fashion things where there
are a lot of cameras. So I can just go there and be like, "Yep, yep,
I'm looking so sick." But in my regular life, I put on clothes that I
can climb trees in.

What are the things worth having?

JADEN: Something that's worth buying to me is like Final Cut Pro or Logic.

WILLOW: A canvas. Paint. A microphone.

JADEN: Anything that you can shock somebody with. The only way to
change something is to shock it. If you want your muscles to grow, you
have to shock them. If you want society to change, you have to shock

WILLOW: That's what art is, shocking people. Sometimes shocking yourself.

So is the hardest education the unlearning of things?

WILLOW: Yes, basically, but the crazy thing is it doesn't have to be like that.

JADEN: Here's the deal: School is not authentic because it ends. It's
not true, it's not real. Our learning will never end. The school that
we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to.

WILLOW: Forever, 'til the day that we're in our bed.

JADEN: Kids who go to normal school are so teenagery, so angsty.

WILLOW: They never want to do anything, they're so tired.

JADEN: You never learn anything in school. Think about how many car
accidents happen every day. Driver's ed? What's up? I still haven't
been to driver's ed because if everybody I know has been in an
accident, I can't see how driver's ed is really helping them out.

WILLOW: I went to school for one year. It was the best experience but
the worst experience. The best experience because I was, like, "Oh,
now I know why kids are so depressed." But it was the worst experience
because I was depressed.

Read the full interview here:

My take on this interview is that there's the good, the bad and the
ugly... I agree with their thoughts of school being overrated.
