British Man Banned From Seeing Girlfriend Due to Loud Sex

August 14, 2008

A British man has been banned from visiting his girlfriend’s home after neighbors complained about noisy sex, a local government official said Thursday.

Adam Hinton, 32, was barred from getting within 100 meters (110 yards) of his 29-year-old girlfriend Kerry Norris’ apartment by a British court Wednesday, Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman Mike Taggart said.

Residents of Norris’s publicly-owned home had been complaining since 2006 about thumping music, banging headboards, and screamed obscenities, Taggart said. He added that a young child had been traumatized.

“There was a 6-year-old child who was subjected to the sort of obscenities you wouldn’t want a 6-year-old to hear,” Taggart said, adding that Norris also sunbathed naked in her yard in full view of passers-by.

“She is a classic nightmare neighbor,” he said. “There’s a salacious, smutty side to this case. But it’s not about sex, it’s about allowing your neighbors to have a normal decent life without being disturbed.”

Taggart said the city council in the southern English community sought the injunction banning Hinton from the apartment because Norris had ignored a previous court order demanding that she be more quiet.

Last week, Norris was forced to pay 300 pounds (US$560) in fines and court costs for breaking “noise abatement order,” Taggart said.

Neither Norris or Hinton could be located for comment.

Watermelons May Help In The Bedroom According To Research

July 3, 2008

Watermelons contain an ingredient called citrulline that can trigger production of a compound that helps relax the body’s blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes Viagra, according to researchers. Found in the flesh and rind of watermelons, citrulline reacts with the body’s enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is changed into arginine, an amino acid that benefits the heart and the circulatory and immune systems.

“Arginine boosts nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it,” said Bhimu Patil, a researcher and director of Texas A&M’s Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center. “Watermelon may not be as organ-specific as Viagra, but it’s a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side effects.”

The nitric oxide can also help with angina, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems, according to the study paid for by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

More citrulline, about 60 percent, is found in watermelon rind than in the flesh, according to the research, but that can vary. Scientists may be able to find ways to boost the concentrations in the flesh. Citrulline is found in all colors of watermelon and is highest in the yellow-fleshed types, said Penelope Perkins-Veazie, a USDA researcher in Lane, Okla.

According to Perkins-Veazie, the research is valid, but with a caveat: One would need to eat about six cups of watermelon to get enough citrulline to boost the body’s arginine level. “The problem you have when you eat a lot of watermelon is you tend to run to the bathroom more,” Perkins-Veazie said. Watermelon is a diuretic and was a homeopathic treatment for kidney patients before dialysis became widespread.

Another issue is the amount of sugar that much watermelon would spill into the bloodstream – a jolt that could cause cramping, Perkins-Veazie said.

The relationship between citrulline and arginine might also prove helpful to those who are obese or suffer from type-2 diabetes. The beneficial effects are beginning to be revealed in research. Citrulline is present in other curcubits, like cucumbers and cantaloupe, at very low levels, and in the milk protein casein. The highest concentrations of citrulline are found in walnut seedlings, Perkins-Veazie said.

“But they’re bitter and most people don’t want to eat them,” she said.

Woman Locked Up 18 Years For Being Pregnant Out of Wedlock

June 14, 2008



Police in southern Italy report that a family kept a woman locked in a room in their house for 18 years because they were angry she was pregnant out of wedlock.

The woman, now 47, was freed by police after receiving an anonymous tip on Friday in Santa Maria Capua Vetere and was taken to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation and care. The brother and sister of the woman were both arrested, while the 80-year old mother on house arrest.

Smut Trial Judge Calls For Ethics Panel To Review His Porn

June 13, 2008

Federal appeal court judge Alex Kozinski called for an ethics panel to investigate his own conduct in regards to the lewd photos and videos on his publicly accessible Web site. “I will cooperate fully in any investigation,” Kozinski, chief judge of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said in a statement calling for Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to assign the inquiry to a panel of judges outside the 9th Circuit’s jurisdiction of nine western states. The outcome seems almost laughable as Circuit judges are appointed for life and can only be fired by Congress, though they can be censured by fellow jurists. Court rules permit such investigations to be transferred in high-profile cases, or when a decision within a district might weaken public confidence in the outcome.

The gallery of online images and videos included a picture of two nude women on all fours painted to look like cows, images of masturbation, a video of a bare-bottomed man being pursued by a sexually aroused donkey and a slide show featuring a striptease with a transsexual.

Laurie Levenson, a former federal prosecutor and law professor at Loyola University Law School said, “If you found this kind of thing in your kid’s bedroom you would wash your kid’s mouth out with soap….Character counts for judges because they have so much power and affect so many people’s lives.”

The existence of the videos and pictures was first revealed by the Los Angeles Times, which reported that Kozinski had acknowledged the material on his personal Web site, but blocked access to it after being interviewed. He went to claim the images were not obscene.

Cyrus Sanai, a Beverly Hills lawyer, took credit for bringing the graphic material to light.

Sanai said he discovered the sexual content in December while monitoring the judge’s Web site as part of an ongoing legal battle with the court. After downloading the files, Sanai said he began contacting reporters at various publications in January to bring attention to what he called widespread ethical problems on the 9th Circuit.

Teen Pimps Busted For Teen Prostituting

May 30, 2008


Three teenagers, two 17 and one 16, who were accused of forcing girls as young as 12 into prostitution have reached plea agreements and been sentenced to a juvenile detention center. The agreement will keep them in detention no longer than their 19th birthdays. In exchange for their pleading guilty, prosecutors dropped other charges, including human trafficking. Charges against others allegedly involved in the ring are pending in adult court.

The prostitution ring was discovered in August after a woman was caught offering men sex with a 14-year-old girl for $50. The teenagers were arrested in January after they had taken the girl to a convenience store to have sex with the owner, a regular customer of the ring, according to police. The teen pimps are suspected members of the Varrio Central gang. Court documents suggest the teens that pleaded guilty befriended runaways and other girls with unstable homes. They would take the girls to regular customers or finding new ones by walking through apartment complexes.
Furthering the graveness of the crimes, the gang members beat and sexually assaulted them and threatened their families if the girls refused to have sex for money, police said. One of the girl’s mother said, “These girls have to live with what happened for the rest of their lives,” said the mother, who was not named to conceal the identity of her daughter. “These boys aren’t going to serve much time. I don’t think that after a year and half, they’ll be ready to get back into society.”

Argentinian House Of Horrors Father Sentenced 16 Years

May 22, 2008


Apparently, the Austrian House of Horrors was NOT one-of-a-kind. In Argentina, a 73-year-old man fathered two children with his young daughter and kept her as his sexual prisoner. He was just sentenced to serve 16 years in prison himself.

Prosecutor Sergio Antin said the case of Eleuterio Soria had similarities to that of Josef Fritzl, the Austrian man arrested last month for locking his daughter in a basement for 24 years. “If we’re talking about sexual subjugation, and we take into account that the victim did not leave the house, yes, there are similarities”.

The trial revealed that the abuse of his daughter began in 1992, when she was only 12 years old. The following year, after becoming pregnant by her father, her mother left their home in La Matanza, a working-class Buenos Aires neighborhood. The family’s remaining five children eventually left, too.

The daughter, whose name was not released, had a second child by her father in 1997. Unlike Fritzl, Soria used psychological domination rather than physical restraints to keep her in the housem including but not limited to threatening her babies at gun point. This was the only thing that would bring her back on the occasions she feld the home.

Her final escape came in 2003, which was followed by her denouncing her father to authorities.
