Car Bomb found in Times Square

New York City police have defused an improvised car bomb parked in Times Square, one of the city's busiest tourist areas, officials say.

They say propane tanks, fireworks, petrol, and a clock device were removed from a parked sports utility vehicle.

Part of the district - where many theatres are sited - was sealed off.

Both US President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg praised the quick response by the New York Police Department.

"We are very lucky," Mr Bloomberg told reporters. "Thanks to alert New Yorkers and professional police officers, we avoided what could have been a very deadly event."

He said the bomb "looked amateurish" but could have exploded, adding that the incident was a "reminder of the dangers that we face".

Correspondents say the New York City Police Department is on constant alert after a series of alleged terror plots in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

"The NYPD bomb squad has rendered safe an improvised car bomb," said New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

The alert was triggered when a street vendor saw smoke coming from a Nissan Pathfinder parked on 45th Street and Seventh Avenue at about 1830 (2230 GMT) on Saturday.

The vehicle had its engine running and hazard lights flashing, officials said.

Police shut down several blocks of Times Square, as well as subway lines, while a robotic arm broke windows of the vehicle.

"There were explosive elements, including powder, gasoline, propane and some kind of electrical wires attached to a clock," police spokesman Paul Browne told reporters early on Sunday.

"No motive has been identified," he added. A metal box resembling a gun locker was also recovered, police say.

Show goes on

Security footage is being reviewed after reports that a person had been seen running away from the vehicle.

Police have established that the car's registration plates do not match up with the Nissan. They belonged to a car owner in the state of Connecticut, who told officers he had sent the plates to a junkyard.

Most Broadway shows went ahead despite the alert.

Jerry Brown, one of the tourists evacuated from the nearby Marriott Marquis hotel, told the BBC: "Guests are sitting on the street and there is considerable chaos... There is talk about moving us to another hotel but I am not sure how this is going to happen."

FBI agents have joined NYPD investigators at the scene.

The White House said President Obama was being kept up to date on the investigation.

On everyone's mind is the city's darkest day, the 2001 attack on the Twin Towers just a few miles away, says the BBC's Barbara Plett in New York.

The most recent terror alert in New York City involved a plot to set off suicide bombs in the subway system.

Earlier this year an Afghan immigrant, Najibullah Zazi, and an associate, Zarein Ahmedzay, both pleaded guilty in connection with the attempt.

Last year four New Yorkers went on trial accused of plotting to bomb synagogues in the city and fire missiles at military aircraft.

A 90-year-old woman from West Yorkshire has amazed her fellow golfers by hitting a hole in one.

Mary Tattersall made the 181yd (165m) shot on the second hole at Shay Grange Golf Centre in Heaton near Bradford.

The pensioner, who has only been playing golf for two years, said she felt amazed and stunned to have achieved the feat.

She was given a special trophy by the club to mark her success on the par three hole.

'Amazing woman'

"I was going around with friends and on the second tee off was amazed to find that I couldn't find my ball and it was in the hole," Ms Tattersall said.

"I was quite amazed really, and stunned, and so were my fellow golfers at the same moment."

Ms Tattersall was 88 when she took up golf to get some exercise and make new friends.

Jordan Gibson, owner of Shay Grange, said she was a natural at the sport.

He said: "It's very rare to get a hole in one. Mary is a real natural with excellent hand and eye co-ordination. She loves golf and plays in all weathers.

"She is an amazing woman, when you see her getting in and out of her car I always feel I should go and help her, but she just jumps out, swings her clubs on her back and she's away."

Ms Tattersall said: "I'm not a competitive person, I only come up to the Shay because it's a very good exercise, better than going to the gym."

Now, for a 90 year old to hit the ball 181yards is a feat in itself, let alone holing it too.

Now this is really way out there :twisted:

A chef with possibly the worst friends in the world died after a live eel shoved up his rectum as a prank when he was passed out drunk gnawed through his guts.

The 59-year-old man, a chef, was reportedly taken to a Sichuan hospital complaining of abdominal pain, dehydration and a great deal of anal bleeding. He was soon diagnosed as being in a severe state of shock.

Doctors mystified by the man's abdominal pain and anal bleeding cut him open and were astonished to find the 20-inch eel lodged in his rectum.

Though dead, the eel had apparently already wrought havoc on his innards, biting its way through his intestines prior to dying. Internal bleeding and infection rapidly set in. The patient died after 10 days in intensive care. Police are investigating, and the "friends" are likely to face charges.

The likely cause was eventually established - he had apparently been drinking with friends, and had passed out. His friends had decided it would be amusing to insert a live eel into his anus whilst he was comatose.

Police have reportedly begun an investigation.

Low-life

Get some facts straight:

The "bomber" was a legal emigrant for Pakistan---a country who we are not at war with! He might be scum and a total F*ck, but he emigrated legally; had a family ...owned a house and had been here for 10 years....wish we would let more Thais in eaisier! --at least tourist Visas :)

( thank God you're a Brit...we will look at you more carefully....had some trouble with your mates a while back!)

and Mexicans are not being picked off at the boarder...although V broker and the Hitler Youth may wish to do so...(and the MEXICAN boarder towns have become shooting galleries with the Mexican Drug Cartels going at it) Saver to stand with the army between the Reds and the Yellows than out on the streets of Nuevo Larado :shock:

Spammo, get some facts straight. The Swat Valley is in Pakistan and is the geographical location of more US plane strikes than any other location in the world in the last few years. War wasn't officially declared due to politics and the US armoes iunability to deal with small gurilla groups in Iraq and the Big stan, but it's on you fool. I'll take back that I tried to lead that it is a full on declaration situation.

My mates in Scottsdale. AZ tell me that Mexicans are generally despised and unwanted due to the cheap labour they provide and how it lends to a "they are taking all our jobs" mentality.

Brits also had problems with your lot as recently as last year when you friendly fired a **** load of them. You can be as patrioticlly blind as you wish but the fact is that your country and my country are making grave erros and have been for years by allowing large numbers of people from areas which have been hating on our places for years and years (although politicians tried to say it wasn't happening at this time). So I still think I was correct. He is from a country your military is bombing frequently to rephrase my statement and Mexicans do get shot for illegal boarder crossing, not all the time but it certainly does happen.

Chill out Yanky, I love the states and even the support of the Jews too. I have been saying for years and years (I have lived in Saudi and Pakistan and anti-American feelings were ALWAYS very popular and common in both places) that people from these regions are waiting for the time to make a move. 9/11 was the start of something which you may not quite understand. It is stoppable though, just like mexican labourers are.

Blow me.

A Hells Angel who was shot dead in a gunfight has gone for one last ride on his beloved Honda - his destination beyond the grave.

Friends helped Puerto Rican David Morales Colon from San Juan David Morales Colon fulfil his last wish - to be buried with his bike - after the 22-year-old lost his life in a shootout last week.

Funeral directors embalmed the body, dressed him in jeans, shoes, a jacket and a hat and put sunglasses on him to cover his eyes.

They then used hidden supports to put the corpse on the bike for the wake - with his hand gunning the throttle and body crouched over the fuel tank, to mimic his stance when riding at speed.

Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell album was played at the funeral.

His uncle Jose Torres said: "He went out as he wanted."

A video of Mr Colon, of San Juan, Puerto Rico, on his bike has become a viral web hit, with nearly 1.5m people clicking on the bizarre sight.

Asian men and BNP candidate Bob Bailey clash in Barking

A fight broke out between a British National Party parliamentary candidate and some Asian men as party members were out campaigning in east London.

Some men earlier swore at leader Nick Griffin and threw fruit at him and he was taken away from the scene.

The candidate for Romford, Bob Bailey, was filmed shouting out to men in Ripple Road when one of them swore and spat at him and Mr Bailey punched him.

Police were called after 1500 BST to the fight between the two groups.

'Campaign of hatred'

At the time Metropolitan Police said they were called to the incident but no-one had been arrested at the scene.

Later however, police said an 18-year-old man attended Barking police station and alleged common assault against another man.

The Barking Community Safety Unit is to look into the matter.

When asked about the fight Mr Griffin told BBC London the fight was the result of a "campaign of hatred and dehumanisation against any group of people, in this case us".

He said: "I think people have to realise that the people have spoken, this is a democratic vote and everyone has to go along with that, whether it's us, our opponents or people on the streets, and if there are a few crazies or thugs on the streets I'm sure the police will deal with them quite quickly.

"The more people in the media talk this up as an issue, the more silly kids on the streets will be inclined to take the law into their hands."

Check the video of the incident.

Motorbike fanatic's body displayed on Honda for three-day wake

The corpse of a fanatic motorbike enthusiast has been embalmed and positioned astride his beloved motorbike for the duration of his three-day wake.

Before he was murdered earlier this month, 22-year-old David Morales Colon had told his family that he didn't want a traditional casket.

So the Marin Funeral Home in San Juan, Puerto Rico, organised for Colon's body to be dressed in biking gear and placed on top of his Honda CBR600 while friends and families paid their respects.

After being embalmed, Colon's corpse was kitted out with blue jeans and a riding jacket, sunglasses, and a black baseball cap. He was posed leaning forward on the bike, as if he was riding at speed down a long, straight stretch of road.

The result is surprisingly life-like.

During the wake, young children took photographs of Colon and his bike, according to reports.

"He loved his motorcycle. It made him feel free from his worries," one mourner said. "We all know he will be happy riding for eternity."

Colon was murdered in San Juan, Puerto Rico on April 22, 2010 .

There's a photo here http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/7684230/Motorbike-fanatics-body-displayed-on-Honda-for-three-day-wake.html

Start the bike up, full throttle then see how far he gets. Love the name, Colon tee hee

Court upholds jail term for 'slave' boss Bangkok Post 7/05/2010

The Court of Appeal has upheld a conviction against a Bangkok businesswoman sentenced to jail for keeping a girl from Buri Ram as a slave. The girl's lawyer has hailed the decision as giving hope for better enforcement of the little-used anti-slavery law.

The court yesterday upheld a 2007 decision by the Criminal Court to sentence Wipaporn Songmeesap, a 53-year-old businesswoman, to 12-and-a-half years in jail. She was also told to pay 200,000 baht in compensation to the girl, whose name was withheld. Siriwan Vongkietpaisan, a human rights expert and the girl's lawyer, said the verdict sends a message to employers that they should treat their staff fairly.

"The anti-slavery law was enacted in 1956. Yet until this case was lodged, no prosecution or lawsuit had been filed under it," Ms Siriwan said. "Some believe slavery no longer exists, so police do not know how to deal with crimes of this nature. "But the verdict in this case will give an example of how the law works, and how anti-slavery provisions can be breached.

The law punishes people who keep others in "slave-like conditions", though their victims do not have to be kept in chains for the law to apply. The maximum penalty is seven years in jail, but for those keeping children under 15 in such conditions, the maximum sentence is doubled - as it was in this case.

In 2006, the girl's family sued Wipaporn for inflicting severe physical harm on the girl. The girl, who was 14 at the time, worked as Wipaporn's maid at her Bangkok home from December 2003 to December 2004. She was forced to work from 4.30am to midnight and had to eat leftover rice with chilli powder, or food left over by Wipaporn's family. She rarely received her 2,000 baht monthly pay.

The court was told the girl was hit repeatedly with a wooden chair, belts and metal rods to the head, chest, back and knees. The girl suffered severe head and body wounds. Wipaporn sent the maid to a hospital in Buri Ram in December 2004 after the girl collapsed.

Doctors had to drain blood from her back to save her life. Her employer claimed the girl was in an accident. Wipaporn was bailed after sentencing and refused to talk to the media.

And I bet she claims to love her kids too.

That's absolutely disgraceful. People like her should just be locked up and the key thrown away or shot.

Out on bail? She'll be busy trying to bribe the girl's family to drop charges as we speak or planning her escape. Disgusting. Some people are worse than animals.

Sorry to harp on, but this story is really niggling me.

It's so reminiscent of past events where people have dehumanised other people to free themselves of any moral or ethical constraints about how they treat others.

Once someone has convinced themselves or has been convinced by others that other people aren't really people, then they have carte blanche to do whatever they wish. Such people would treat animals better.

Absolutely nothing could be as horrible than this. I'm utterly disgusted with the "woman".

This abhorence of a human being should be made an example of to bring people to their seemingly lost senses.

Motorbike fanatic's body displayed on Honda for three-day wake

The corpse of a fanatic motorbike enthusiast has been embalmed and positioned astride his beloved motorbike for the duration of his three-day wake.

Before he was murdered earlier this month, 22-year-old David Morales Colon had told his family that he didn't want a traditional casket.

So the Marin Funeral Home in San Juan, Puerto Rico, organised for Colon's body to be dressed in biking gear and placed on top of his Honda CBR600 while friends and families paid their respects.

After being embalmed, Colon's corpse was kitted out with blue jeans and a riding jacket, sunglasses, and a black baseball cap. He was posed leaning forward on the bike, as if he was riding at speed down a long, straight stretch of road.

The result is surprisingly life-like.

During the wake, young children took photographs of Colon and his bike, according to reports.

"He loved his motorcycle. It made him feel free from his worries," one mourner said. "We all know he will be happy riding for eternity."

Colon was murdered in San Juan, Puerto Rico on April 22, 2010 .

There's a photo here http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/7684230/Motorbike-fanatics-body-displayed-on-Honda-for-three-day-wake.html

Should give these types over to the parents for beheading !

Publicly.

I'd do it.

I'm ashamed to be seen in the same species with her.

IN the US molesters get a few years in prison then out to molest again while pot smokers get the same treatment. Dam prison state ! bailiff wack their peepee !
