This photo of dogs waiting for homeless man outside hospital entrance is melting hearts online
(The heartwarming scene grabbed the attention of a nurse, who then posted the photo on Facebook and since then has melted hearts of lakhs of people online.)
‘Dogs are man’s best friend’ is not just a mere saying, and this post going viral will make you believe it even more. Recently, when a homeless man in Brazil was admitted in a hospital, staff realised that he wasn’t alone. Yes, as he was getting treated, four dogs patiently kept waiting at the door! The heartwarming scene grabbed the attention of a nurse, who then posted the photo on Facebook and since then has melted hearts of lakhs of people online.
Cris Mamprim from Brazil took to Facebook to narrate the whole incident, “At the hospital in which I work, at 3 am, while [their] owner – a street dweller – was being answered, his companions waited at the door,” the translated post, written originally in Portuguese, read.
Identifying the homeless man named César, she added, “A simple person, without luxury, who depends on help to overcome the hunger, the cold, the pain, the evils of the world, has by his side the best companions, and the exchange is reciprocal.”
Staffs at Hospital Regional Alto Vale in Brazil bore witness to the touching scene and later invited the patient’s furry friends inside and offered food to him, which the nurse said he saved for them.
According to Business Insider, he admitted that he often forgoes food for himself to ensure the pups in company stay well fed. “They are all well taken care of and chubby,” Mamprim told The Dodo. “Seeing them like that, waiting at the door, only shows how much they are cared for and loved.”
With nearly 80,000 shares on the social media platform, at the time of writing, people couldn’t stop showering love on the dogs and the man for taking care of them.

Photo apparently showing 2 people doing it atop the Great Pyramid is making Egypt really angry
A photographer is being investigated by Egyptian officials after posting photos that apparently show him trespassing and possibly even having sex on top of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Andreas Hvid posted a video to YouTube on Friday featuring himself and an unidentified female friend climbing the pyramid in late November. Against the backdrop of the city of Cairo, the video follows the two as they wander around the top of the tallest of the three Great Pyramids, later showing the friend beginning to take her clothes off. An image that has since been posted to Hvid’s website illustrates what seemingly happened next.
According to NBC, Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities has already released a statement saying the incident “violates public morality,” and are requesting an investigation by the Attorney General. The former Egyptian Minister of Antiquities and former director general of Giza Plateau, Zahi Hawass, however, told the outlet that the photos are likely to be fake.
“One hundred percent it is photoshopped,” the archaeologist told NBC. “There is no way anyone can enter the Pyramids area at night.”
Hawass also pointed out that the stones were “too small” to be from the Pyramid. If the footage is determined to be real by authorities, however, he said, Hvid will be penalized based on any damage that may have been done to the historical landmark.

Gujarat Businessman Dismantles Mercedes To Rescue Kitten Hidden Inside Car. Humanity Wins!
A businessman from Gujarat dismantled his Mercedes to rescue a kitten hiding somewhere in the car. Jayeshbhai Tailor, a Surat-based businessman was on a trip to Mumbai.
They heard a cat meow and that’s when his dog, who was also travelling with the family, got alarmed.
And then began a six-hour-long mission to rescue the kitten.
Good Samaritans, police and roadside mechanic joined the effort to save the kitten. Soon after, Tailor summoned technicians from the Mercedes breakdown helpline to Sion. The car was slowly driven to an authorised workshop in Kalina, where it was partly dismantled so that the kitten could be safely brought out.
It took technicians three hours to find the stowaway because it remained silent throughout, making it even more difficult to locate it.
The rescued kitten also found a new home. Anupam Mhaske, an employee of the workshop who is quite fond of animals, adopted the kitty.
Sikh Girl Bridges Communal Gap, Offers Kidney To Her Muslim Friend
In a heart-warming episode, a Sikh girl from Jammu, Manjot Singh Kohli, 23, has offered her kidney to her Muslim friend Samreen who is suffering from a kidney ailment and require a transplant to survive.
Manjot has offered her kidney to Samreen despite her family having reservations about it and whether it’s God’s wish, she is a perfect match for Samreen. However, despite completing formalities, there are obstacles, the authorisation committee has still not cleared the case "since the father of the donor has made a representation cautioning against removing kidney of his daughter for the transplant".
"We can't blame them (family). They are emotionally attached to their kid. I cannot say they are wrong. From their point of view what they are doing is right. But I think rising above the emotions, we should do what God has sent us for. All the relations will stay here and saving life is most important. Plus I am a major and I can take decisions of my own," Manjot told DNA.
Hailing from Udhampur in Jammu, Manjot met Samreen four years ago and since then they had been friends. "Since I am a social activist and she used to participate in my activities and we became good friends. Five months back, I read a Facebook status of our common friend about Samreen. I was confused about whether she is the same Samreen. Next day I took the flight to meet her," Manjot who also is the youngest women entrepreneur of the state and chairperson of an NGO 'International Anti-Corruption and Human Rights Council'.
Samreen who is at Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Srinagar said that Manjot can any do anything for her.
"For the last four months, she has not budged from her stand. She is the finest example of true friendship," said Samreen, who dropped out from masters programme after her illness.
Mukhtar Ahmad Malik, Samreen’s father, however, is worried. "I am a simple tailor and have spent Rs 7-8 lakh for treatment. But her condition is deteriorating by the day. Even after Manjot offered the kidney and completed all the formalities, her father is not accepting. I have told her that family is her priority and she should back out," he said.
Dr Farooq Jan, Medical Superintendent of SKIMS, said father of the donor has made a representation to the institute and has asked them not to allow the girl to donate her kidney.
Manjot’s family is also against her decision, but she is firm.
“I’m not scared of anything. My only concern is that humanity should not lose out. My family has got swayed by emotion… but I shall go ahead anyway,” Manjot told The Telegraph.
“My strong belief in humanity is motivating me, and you can see the communal harmony my decision is creating…. Had my family supported me, it would have made me very happy.” “But I’m an adult and nothing bars me legally from donating my kidney,” she said.
Samreen who undergoes regular dialysis at the hospital thanked her friend for her efforts to rescue her life.
“My mother wanted to donate her kidney but she was declared unfit because of a rare medical condition. We hoped some other relatives might come forward but none did,” she said. “All I want is that the hospital waste no more time.”
Shocking! This animal was used as sex slave for 6 years before she was rescued
(The horrifying story of a prostitute orangutan named Pony who was chained to a bed, shaved daily and forced to perform sex acts on men twice her size)
We have heard about trafficking women and children and forcing them into prostitution. But here is a heart-breaking story of an orangutan facing the same agony or even worse- chained to a wall and lying in a dirty environment with full make-up. Named Pony, she waited for her next client to sexually abuse her!
According to a report in the Irish Sun, Pony was exploited by men working in the nearby palm oil farm in the island of Borneo in a brothel in lieu of paying money. And this ordeal of the poor animal went on for six long years.
Pony was stolen from her mother when she was a baby and she was shaved everyday and even taught how to perform sexual acts. Her skin was left irritated and full of sores because of the regular shaving.
Orangutans' existence are under threat because of commercial exploitation of their habitats in places like Borneo and Sumatra and on the top of it, they have fallen victims of illegal ape trafficking where they are sold for up to a price of £10,000 via the black market. The animals are even bought through social media sites.
Pony has taken over a decade to recover from the horror she faced, the Irish Sun report added. She was rescued in 2003, thanks to a noble effort by Michelle Desilets, a former teacher who volunteered to take care of orphaned orangutans in Borneo in mid-1990s and was the director of Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation UK.
"It was horrifying. She was a sex slave - it was grotesque. She was covered in abscesses, and they put make-up and earrings on her. She must have been in so much pain. It was horrible to think about how terrified she must have been," Desilets was quoted as saying by The Sun Online.
Her rescue was not easy though as the local villagers resisted to let her go as she bought good money. It took 35 armed police personnel to rescue the primate, the report said.
After 2.5 Years, Kerala Woman Wins Battle Against Fake Nude Video
A Thodupuzha-native and Kochi resident Sobha Sajju, who faced humiliation for nearly 2 and a half years after her fake nude video was posted online got some respite on Monday, 26 November after the forensic department confirmed that the pictures were manipulated.
Sajju, who received a divorce petition during the investigation and hasn’t seen her children in over two years, had shown immense courage by coming out in front of the media and standing up for what’s right.
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
According to a report in The News Minute, nearly two and a half years ago Litto, an employee, in Sobha’s husband’s office circulated a video on their office group, in which a young women could be seen deliberately changing clothes in front of the camera. Litto alleged that the woman in the video was Sobha.
Sobha then approached the Ernakulam South police station who referred her case to the cyber cell. The employee was then taken into custody by the police.
The cyber cell had told Sobha that she needs to come to the police station for investigation as they were sure that the woman in the video wasn’t her and that she had not been technologically morphed into the video either.
However, when her husband was called in for interrogation, he was convinced that the woman in the video was Sobha. Moreover, he sent a divorce petition to Sobha four days after the complaint.
Speaking to The News Minute Sobha said: "“When I got the divorce petition, I was very confused,” says Sobha, “I thought, is everyone in the world like this? Even the police officers were saying to me, it is not you, so why is your husband saying it is? I asked myself if he was saying it purposely, had someone tricked him, or was his mental state causing him to say this? I had no idea.”"
WHAT DID THE FORENSIC REPORT SAY?
The video was sent to the forensic lab but the report proved to be inconclusive as it said that the women in the video bore “similarity” to Sobha.
The case was later transferred to the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), Thiruvananthapuram which came out with a conclusive report that the woman in the video is not Sobha.
IS THE LEGAL BATTLE OVER?
However, Sobha’s legal battle is far from over. Speaking to The News Minute, Sobha said, “All this time I was fighting to clear my name in this case. I couldn't fight all the cases at the same time. So now I can turn my attention to fighting the case to get custody of my kids. Now that I have cleared my name, maybe that case can go smoothly.”

Mumbai Male Dog Brutally Gang Raped By 4 Low Lives Dies After Fighting For His Life
[INDIA] --- Until now, national capital New Delhi and surrounding regions were known as the ‘rape capital’ for notorious crimes that take place in the vicinity. However, a heart-wrenching news of a male street dog being brutally raped by four low lives in Mumbai has surpassed all other misdeeds.
The incident, which brings shame to humanity and poses serious questions about the safety of dogs in our country, has invited a lot of flak, grief and anger from around the globe.
A non-profit organisation, Animals Matter To Me (AMTM) which had taken care of the dog and had been treating it posted on social media platform, Facebook that the dog had succumbed to his injuries.
The welfare organisation posted a few photos of a vet examining the body of the animal along with a police officer.
Soon social media users started offering their heartfelt condolences for the street animal. Many people asserted that the dog had gone to a better place, expressing astonishment that how could humanity stoop to a new level with each passing day.
The incident took place on Saturday night in Mumbai’s Malwani when a local resident, Sudha Fernandes, who regularly feeds the dog found its private parts seriously injured and found the animal bleeding profusely.
Fernandes added that later, a local auto driver informed them that he saw four men, who were allegedly under influence of drugs sexually abusing the dog, which was tied on the legs and its mouth gagged.
The doctor who treated the quadruped had earlier said its private parts have been mutilated in such a way that it could not happen unless someone forcibly harmed it adding that someone even tried to fold its hind legs near the pelvis.
In August this year, eight men were booked for raping a goat that was pregnant in Haryana’s Mewat district. The goat had also succumbed to her injuries and the state police had arrested two of the eight accused.
1000 Cops From Three States Nab Paedophile & Serial Killer Who Raped 3-Year-Old Girl In Gurugram
[INDIA] --- After nearly a week of manhunt the Gurugram Police have arrested the accused in the rape and murder of a three-year-old girl in the city.
The accused, identified as 20-year-old Sunil Kumar was arrested from Jhansi on Tuesday after a massive manhunt involving more than 1,000 cops across Haryana, Delhi, and UP.
While police were expecting to bring closure to the rape and murder case, the revelation by the accused caught them off guard.
Kumar has reportedly admitted that he has killed seven more girls aged between 3 to 8 years, after raping them. These incidents happened across Gurugram, Delhi, Gwalior and Jhansi where the accused used to visit.
He was first noticed by the Gurugram Police following the brutal rape and murder of a 3-year-old girl last week in Sector 66, Gurugram. Kumar who was in the locality for nearly a week to meet his mother and sister. He had gone missing on Monday when the girl's naked body was found dumped in a room constructed for labourers.
Police said that Sunil would break the girl's leg with a brick before raping her, this torture-ritual would arouse him. He murdered the three-year-old victim in Gurugram, Sector 66 on November 11 with equal brutality. The girl's skull was found smashed with a brick and a wooden stick was inserted in her vagina. The doctors removed the half broken stick from her private parts during the post-mortem.
The first lead the cops received about Kumar was a CCTV footage from the area where he was seen walking with the victim.
Upon questioning his kin, the cops learnt that Kumar mostly ate at community kitchens and langars and engaged in daily wage work. They also got to know about some locations which he frequently visited.
Based on the inputs the Gurugram Police reached out to their counterparts in Delhi and UP.
After receiving credible inputs that Kumar had reached Magarpur village in Jhansi to meet some acquaintances, the Gurugram Police moved in and nabbed him from Magapur village.
According to the cops, Kumar's modus-operandi was to scout for minor girls from crowded places like community feasts and religious gatherings. He also admitted about abduct minor girls from slums when their parents would be away for work.
Kumar would then rape his victims and later brutally kill them, the police said.
Shocking! Male Dog Gangraped By Four Men In Mumbai, Left Seriously Injured
[INDIA] --- In a shocking crime that cannot be described in words, a street dod was brutally gang-raped by four men in Mumbai.
The incident which happened in Mumbai's Malwani on Saturday night came to light after Sudha Fernandes, a local resident who regularly feed the dogs in the area, stated that she spotted the dog on Saturday.
According to Fernandes, her husband spotted the dog and asked her to feed it. But when Fernandes went near the dog with food it responded in fear and tried to move away.

She added that later she was told by a local auto driver that he saw four men who were allegedly under influence of drugs sexaully abusing the dog which was tied on the leges and its mouth gagged. The dog's loud screams alerted the driver but by the time he reached the accused had fled from the location.
The animal welfare group, which is currently treating the injured dog said the poor creature is in severe trauma and gets scared when someone tries to get near it.
The doctor who is treating the dog said its private parts have been mutilated in such a way that it could not happen unless someone forcibly harmed it adding that someone even tried to fold its hind legs near the pelvis.
A Group Of 'Men' In Delhi Marked International Men's Day By Taking Out Anti #MeToo March
Are men being victimised in the ongoing #metoo campaign? At least, some men think like that. So, on the occasion of International Men's Day some of them marched in the national capital seeking an end to what they see as a targeted attack on men during the campaign.
Organised by a couple of men's rights groups, named Save Family Foundation and Men Welfare Trust, the men walked through Delhi's Connaught Place on Monday demanding an end to harassment of men.
They chanted slogans like "men want justice," while holding placards which read, "Stop treating husband as an ATM".
The demonstrators also demanded that a Men's Commision should be set up in the national level, similar to Women's Commision to address the grievances of men.
"We are leading a peaceful march for the rights for men. Today, the men are in a very difficult situation. Especially if you look at the recent me too camping. The campaign has made it so easy to name and shame any man, without any proof or evidence. Men are being demonized without any fault of theirs," Wasif Ali, Co-founder of Save Family Foundation, and one of the organizers of the march said.
Ali also added that the media and the judicial system are biased against men when it comes to #metoo campaign.
"There is no justice system left for the men who are accused during the 'me too'. They also face a media trial and the man's reputation is damaged," he said.
The protesters said the solution for their grievances is the setting up of a Men's Commission which will exclusively address the complaints of men, in cases like dowry harassment, divorce and custody of children.
"We want a 'Men's Commission' to address our concerns. Every year, double the number of men commits suicide than women. 90,000 men commit suicide in India every year, compared to 40,000 women. But there is no one to hear our concerns. There has to be a separate men's body," Ali claimed.
"Even in most of the court cases for the custody of the child, 98% of the time it goes in the favour of the women. I even struggle to get visiting rights to their own children. Why is it so? " Ali asked.
The group claims to have thousands of members across India and fight for the rights of men.
Two Women Face Ordeal Over Accosting Man for Masturbating in Bus
Daisy and I had to go for a client meet on 10 November. That day, our office cab service was not available. So both Daisy and I decided to take the city bus for the client meet. Both of us work with a PR company.
We boarded the city bus at around 1:15 pm, when this horrific incident took place. The bus we took wasn’t very crowded. Both of us got a seat to sit. One behind the other, on the aisle side. After a while, a man boarded the bus and sat next to my seat.
A few minutes into the bus ride, my friend Daisy shouted and pointed towards the man, who was flashing his genitals and was masturbating at his seat. When Daisy first saw him, she asked two boys sitting next to her, to look at what the man was doing. But they just smiled and ignored her.
Daisy was disgusted by both the man’s act and fellow passengers’ response.
She stood up from her seat and called out to me. I didn’t hear all this because I was listening to music and I didn’t even notice hat that man was doing. We both got angry and shouted at the man. Daisy took out her slipper and started beating him and I decided to record the whole incident as evidence.
During the incident, we asked the co-passengers to come forward and help us take that man to the police station, but no one came forward except one man, Prashant Kalita.
Later, we asked the driver and the conductor to stop the bus at the nearest police station. I would also like to mention here that, when the bus driver slowed down to stop the bus, many male passengers yelled at the driver said, “why are you wasting our time, don’t you know that these are common things that happen in buses and other public transport.” Some laughed and told us why we are creating a scene.
The bus stopped at Paltan Bazaar police station and with the help of Prashant Kalita, we took that man to the police station and filed an FIR.
Both Daisy and I received a lot of appreciation on social media when we shared the video but on a personal front, we were disappointed to a great extent.
Both of us are married women, so when the local news channel covered our story they (our families) got very upset as they felt good “bahus” of good families don’t do such a thing.
It was difficult to explain to them what happened to us.
My family member switched channels whenever news of us accosting the man who masturbated in the bus would flash on the local channels. Daisy's family stopped talking to her. No one in our family wanted to discuss with us about what happened. They kept pretending as if nothing ever happened.
We even received calls from media asking for our interview, or calling us to the studio but we could not give a positive response as our families didn’t approve of it.
Luckily, my husband has been very supportive.
What’s worse is that many people are trying to give it a communal angle.
The reason behind this is because the accused has a name from a particular community. This is very disturbing, because by giving a communal angle, we are just diluting an important issue.
Right now, the accused is in police custody and he’ll be produced before the district magistrate soon for a hearing.
Denied Ambulance, Father Forced to 'Secretly' Carry Baby's Dead Body in Bus for 8 Hours in J&K
The heaviest load that labourer Mohammad Sultan has carried in the last 30 years was a tiny body weighing 12 kg. The body of Manan, his two-year-old son.
Hidden from many eyes and snuggled slyly in a blanket, the stiff body of little Manan was carried through Thursday night and Friday morning till it reached Kishtwar, where it stoked massive street protests.
The baby could have been on the path to recovery had the poor family been able to move Kishtwar deputy commissioner Angrez Singh Rana into action for making available a critical care ambulance that was lying not far away. Neither Rana nor his subordinates and officials at the Kishtwar district bothered to act.
Rana, however, claims protests are political. “The district hospital people told me the critical care ambulance was not in town. It was returning from Jammu and was caught in a traffic jam,” Rana said in his defence. “People who are leading the protest against me are trying to politicise the issue,” he said.
But Sultan and Muzaffar Hussain, his nephew, are in a state deep shock and grief.
“It was a long night which we will never forget. We spent 12 hours with a dead baby in a bid to take him home for burial,” Hussain told media from Kucchal village in Kishtwar.
“No one was willing to take us back home through the night. We turned to everyone for help, spent six hours at the Jammu bus stand. Finally, we decided to board a passenger bus without telling anyone that a baby lay dead in a folded blanket,” he added.
Sultan and Hussain carried a lifeless Manan for 230 km from Jammu to Kishtwar for eight hours, exactly the same time they had spent travelling from Kishtwar when they were referred to Jammu's SMHS speciality hospital.
Recalling the tragic events, Hussian said that on Thursday morning they took Manan to Kishtwar hospital after he started feeling drowsy at his home in Kucchal village.
“Manan was administered some medicines at the hospital, but when he did not show any improvement, we were told his condition had deteriorated. The doctors told us that the baby was suffering from acute pneumonia. They referred him to Jammu children’s hospital,” he said.
He said the family sought help from Ababeel, a a local voluntary organisation, which requested Rana to provide a critical care ambulance to ferry the child to Jammu.
“When we entered DC sahib's room, he asked us to leave forthwith saying ‘no one dies of pneumonia’,” Hussian added.
“Even his deputy told us to leave. We collected money for the poor family and later rushed them to Jammu in an ordinary ambulance,” said a senior functionary of Ababeel. “The hospital management provides ambulance to the patients only after fuel charges are paid,” he said, adding that even poor patients have to pay.
The family and NGO members alleged that they tried to reason with Rana and his deputy that since they could not afford the payment, they be given an ambulance free of charges. “But since they did not agree, we collected and paid Rs 3,800 as charges,” the Ababeel official said.
Rana admitted that this was the norm, but added that exceptions are made in some cases. “Had they requested, I would have considered,” he said.
Sajjad Ahmed Najjar, a local councillor, flayed the district administration and demanded that Rana and the hospital administrators be suspended or shifted out of Kishtwar “for negligence leading to death of a baby”.
He even led a protest outside District Hospital, Kishtwar, where many residents staged a sit-in with the body when it arrived from Jammu just before noon.
Najjar alleged that the district administration did not even ask the driver of the ambulance, in which Manan was taken to Jammu, to bring back the child’s body even though he was in the same city.
“They are so irresponsible that they did not think of allowing the family to give a decent burial to a small baby,” he said.
The protestors have demanded that the police register an FIR against Rana, his deputy and hospital officials for carelessness.
However, the protests ended when a local tehsildar assured of an inquiry and compensation for the family. Late on Friday, little Manan's body was buried in Kucchal village.

A 24-year old man lost his life when he tried to pull off a stunt with a cobra. Jagadish visited a snake charmer and tried to play with a cobra to get a selfie clicked with the poisonous snake. The man tried to put the cobra on his shoulder for a picture and even though it was held strongly around the neck, the snake did manage to bite his hand. The man was immediately taken to the hospital but due to the lack of anti-venom, he lost his life. The entire of the man's stunt was captured on camera.
The incident took place at Mangalampadu Street in a small town of the Nellore district. According to the locals, the snake charmer used to entertain such people and claim he has herbal medicines to cure snake bites. The video of the incident shows how the man was completely clueless about handling snakes.
The man had no experience of dealing with snakes but is seen acting all confident trying to scare all other around who are watching his stunt. Jagadish then tried to put it around his neck and asked his friends to click a picture. The cobra then bit his hand and he collapsed. By the time he was brought to the hospital for a treatment, he was declared dead. Now a case has been registered against the snake charmer who is missing since the incident. He had removed the cobra's fangs and his venom, thus he used to let the public take and entertain it. But the cobra likely developed venom again and the person was unaware, resulting in his death.
Gurugram: 3-Year-Old Girl Raped Before Murder, Stick Inserted in Private Parts
[INDIA] --- In an appalling case reported from Gurugram, a naked dead body of a three-year-old girl was found on Monday morning. The girl was lying in a pool of blood, mutilated and her head was crushed by the accused. The girl was found in a room built for storing fodder, around 300 metres from her residence.
According to a report by the media, the accused who is suspected to be a 20-year-old man works as a construction labourer. The child was brutally raped, after which the accused inserted a wooden stick in her private parts before smashing her skull with a stone. The accused's barbaric act left deep injury marks all over the girl's body. The half-broken stick was removed by the doctors from her private parts during the post-mortem.
Reportedly, the child was the fourth born to her parents, who hailed from Bengal. They came to Gurugram in search of a livelihood. The girl was missing since Sunday 11 am and was found on Monday morning in Sector 66. The police officials told the national daily that the girl was playing outside her house when the accused lured her away. Although no one heard the girl's cry, so it is still dubious if the minor was drugged or not. The girl's parents came to know that she is missing when they returned from work. However, the parents decided to inform the police the next day.
Once again, on Monday morning neighbours and parents began the search for her and found the girl in an isolated room, lying in a pool of blood. Shakuntala Yadav, Assistant Police Commissioner (crime against women-south) told the national daily that the forensic team has collected samples from the spot. Four teams have been deployed to track down the 20-year-old accused, Sunil, a worker from Uttar Pradesh.
The accused came to Gurugram a few days ago and was living with his sisters in the same locality. The police have recorded the statements of both his sisters, who work as domestic help in housing societies nearby.
Reportedly, Dr Deepak Mathur, the forensic expert mentioned that the girl died due to excessive bleeding and deep injury on her head.
However, the investigation in the case is still underway and the police have registered a case under Section 376 (Punishment for rape), 302 (Punishment for murder) and Section 4 (Punishment for penetrative sexual assault) of the Protection of Children from sexual Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against the unidentified perpetrators.
Air Hostess Breastfeeds Passenger's Crying Baby After Mum Runs Out of Formula Milk
A Filipino flight attendant donned her mom-cape aboard a flight and is winning hearts all over for her act.
It was a routine take-off for 24-year-old Patrisha Organo, one of the cabin crew members onboard a Philippine Airlines flight until she heard an infant crying and decided to go beyond her call of duty.
On approaching the anxious baby, Organo realised that the mum had run out of formula milk. Organo, who is a mother of a nine-month-old baby, knew the troubles of motherhood and offered to help.
"Everything went smoothly until after takeoff, I heard an infant’s cry, a cry that will make you want to do anything to help. I approached the mother and asked if everything’s okay, I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child. Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk. Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant," Organo wrote in a now-viral Facebook post.
This is when her maternal instinct kicked in. "I thought to myself, there’s only one thing I could offer and that’s my own milk. And so I offered."
The mum-baby duo was then assisted by the Line Administrator to the galley where Organo breastfed the baby until it fell asleep.
"The baby started rooting, she was so hungry. I saw the relief on her mother’s eyes. I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep. I escorted her back to her seat," she added.
Speaking to the Mirror, Organo explained why she decided to step in.
"I could only imagine the chaos of those feelings, but as a mother myself I knew the stress she would've been going through. The helplessness you feel when you cannot feed your hungry child is horrible, so I had to step in. As soon as I could help the baby and the mother I felt so happy - I cannot put into words how fulfilled I felt," she told.
As for the mum, she thanked the flight attendant for coming to her rescue.
Her Facebook post titled 'I breastfed a stranger’s baby inflight' has gone viral on the platform since and it has been 'liked' over 150K times.

When Humans Become Devils: Pups Set Ablaze And Left To Burn In Hyderabad, Three Die On The Spot
It looks as if India is waging a war against helpless animals. Tigresses are being gunned down, elephants are being run over by trucks, human beings are being lynched and now small puppies are being put on fire.
In an inhumane incident, four pups were set ablaze in the city of Hyderabad while they were sleeping in garbage dumps, PTI reported. The gruesome incident which took place in the city’s Moula Ali suburb was carried out by unidentified culprits.
While three puppies were charred to death, one of them is battling for its life. The quint reported that after the brutal killings were brought to light, a resident alerted the members of an animal welfare organisation, the People for Animals (PFA).
Reportedly, a whatsapp video of the incident had also gone viral where the mother dog could be seen crying at the sight of burnt puppies. A member of PFA, TV Siva lodged an FIR with the police at the Kushaiguda police station. The Times Now reported that a man named Laxminarayana, a resident of Ganesh Nagar in Kapra informed the animal welfare organisation.
The complaint read that anti-social elements of the society had put the four puppies on fire and threw them to burn in an open plot in Ganesh Nagar. The police have been requested to find out the perpetrators behind this deadly act through CCTV cameras.
The PFA volunteer has called for stringent punishment against this act and has called it illegal and unconstitutional under section 11(1) A of the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals act, 1960 and IPC 429.
Stray dogs live in miserable conditions in India. They are often beaten, thrown from rooftops or mutilated by miscreants who often carry out such activities “just for fun” or for their own pleasure. Lack of sympathy towards them, illiteracy and common sense, mostly in rural parts of India result in these barbaric acts.

Comic strip describes the ordeal and harassment
Around 10 women have come together and created a comic describing the ordeal and harassment they allegedly faced at the studio.

Matter is now under investigation by an internal committee
The teacher, Mohan, says he cannot comment on the issue and that the matter is under investigation by an internal committee. "The complainants are being spoken to, and a report will be put up on the website in a week's time."
Villagers Who Killed Tigress Inside Dudhwa Reserve Tried To Pull Out Its Nails And Canine Teeth
[INDIA] --- This can only be described as barbaric... A tigress was beaten to death by a group of villagers inside its home, in the core of the in Kishanpur sanctuary of Dudhwa Tiger Reserve in Uttar Pradesh, because it attacked a man who had intruded into its territory, which is banned for human entry.
What is even more shocking is the way the big cat was killed on Sunday.
It was crushed to death under tractor after a man identified as 50-year-old Devanand was attacked by the tigress on Sunday morning and he succumbed to the injuries later during the day.
Following the death, a group of villagers allegedly entered inside the forest reserve, chased the big cat with the truck and run the vehicle over it. They even attacked the guards who were on duty the national park.
Their anger did not even end there, the villager continues to trash it with sticks even after the animal was dead. They even tried to pull out its nails and canine teeth.
Mahavir Kojilangi, the director of the Dudhwa National Park blamed anti-social elements for the death of the 10-year-old tigress.
He also added that those behind the killing have been identified and strict action will be taken against those responsible.
The village where the incident happened is inside the core zone of the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve in Lakhimpur Kheri. This has resulted in human-animal conflict in the past too.
But despite the villager claiming that the tigress which was killed was a man-eater, the authorities say there is no evidence to substantiate it. They said that the tigress had not once attacked any person in the past decade.
The incident in Dudhwa happened even while there was nationwide outrage over the killing of Avni, aka T1 an alleged man-eater from Maharashtra.
She was shot dead by Asgar Ali Khan, the son of Shafath Ali Khan, a sharpshooter and a highly controversial hunter who was roped in by the Maharashtra government to kill her.
A first information report (FIR) was lodged against six people by name and several unidentified people in connection with the killing of a tigress, which was beaten and crushed under a tractor in Kishanpur sanctuary of Dudhwa Tiger Reserve on Sunday evening, DTR field director Ramesh Pandey said on Monday.

Pandey also said an autopsy revealed that villagers inflicted injuries on the big cat before and after its death. They also tried to pull out its nails and canine teeth, he said and ruled out the tigress having been a man-eater.
He said stern action will be taken against those who killed the tigress in the core zone of the tiger reserve. The core zone is the area of a reserve conserved solely for tigers with no human intervention. Inspector Atar Singh confirmed the FIR was lodged at Sehramu in Pilibhit against Bablu, Mukesh, Lal Bahadur, Chauthi, Subhash and Omprakash and several unidentified people. All those booked by name are residents of Chaltua village in Pilibhit near which the incident occurred. Chaltua village is part of the Kishanpur sanctuary.
The inspector also said the FIR was lodged under Sections 147 (punishment for rioting), 148 (armed with deadly weapon), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty, 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to public servant), 342 (punishment for wrongful confinement), 427 (mischief), 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC and Sections 9/27/31/51(1) of the Wild Life Protection Act.
Minor Girl in ICU allegedly raped by hospital staffer, 3 others in UP's Bareilly
A teenage girl in the intensive care unit (ICU) was allegedly gang-raped by a hospital staffer and three other persons in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly city, police said.
According to the police complaint lodged by her father, the incident occurred on Wednesday night, a day after the 17-year-old was admitted in the ICU after being bitten by a poisonous insect.
“The girl was not in a condition to speak or call for help at the time of the incident. But she informed her relative about it when she was transferred to the general ward on Friday. As per the complaint, the accused raped the girl on her bed inside the ICU. The bed has long curtains around it that apparently blocked the view of other staff,” said superintendent of police, city, Abhinandan Singh
Police have registered a case and initiated investigations. A search is on for the four accused who are all absconding.
“The compounder at the hospital, Sunil Sharma and three others have been charged with gang rape in the FIR. Two police teams have been deployed to arrest them,” Singh said. The accused have also been charged under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act as the girl is a minor.
The girl was taken for a medical examination Saturday, while investigators have also sent her the dress she was wearing at the time of the incident for forensic tests.
“Our teams are speaking to other patients and staff regarding the incident for our investigation,” the officer said
The hospital management however refuted the allegations of rape inside the ICU.
“There were other patients and at least three staff members inside the ICU on Wednesday. None of them have corroborated the claims of the minor girl,” read an official response from the hospital, but said the hospital authorities will cooperate with police in the investigation.
'Man eating' tigress Avni slain by sharp-shooter in Indian forest - sparking huge backlash from animal activists
For weeks wildlife enthusiasts and animal lovers were campaigning to save Avni, a tigress in Maharashtra, for which the government had issued a shoot at sight order because she was allegedly a man-eater.
But even as the campaigners continued to make their desperate attempts, the news which they feared has come.
A man eating tigress thought to have devoured 13 people has been shot dead in India.
A 'sharp shooter' named Asgar Ali shot the tiger dead last night in India's Maharashtra state near the town of Yavatmal, police said.
The death of the endangered animal sparked mass anger. The Bengal tiger is the national animal of India.
The tiger, named Avni, had two cubs aged 10 months at the time of her death.
The tigress officially called T1 has been shot dead by the team of hunters which was dispatched to eliminate her.
The five-year-old tigress was shot dead on Friday night from near a road in Borati village by Asgar Ali Khan, son of sharp-shooter Shafath Ali Khan who was heading the hunt for her.
She was killed in a single shot, from point blank, without even making an attempt to tranquilize her and capture the tiger alive, which the activists were demanding.
The death of Avni leaves her two young cubs who are around 10-months-old, vulnerable, as the hunt team is yet to capture them or devise any solid plan to rehabilitate them.
The death of Avni is once again likely to ignite the debate over how animals are always on the receiving end when it comes to human-animal conflicts.
The order to shoot her dead was issued on September 4 was and was cleared by the Supreme Court on September 11 citing that she was a maneater.
According to the government records since June 2016, 13 people have been killed in tiger attacks in Pandharkawada divisional forest, 11 of whom were shepherds inside the forest and two in farms. Of the last five deaths, one was in December 2017, one in January 2018 and three in August.
However, those behind the campaign had pointed out that alleged deaths had happened inside the forest, where it was illegal to enter. They also alleged that out of the 13 bodies which were recovered, DNA tests were conducted only on 3 of them and tiger DNA was found only on one of the bodies.
Following the killing of Avani, activists are also likely to raise the fact that the tigress was shot dead by Asgar Ali Khan, while the Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) A K Mishra had given the shooting permission to his father Shafath Ali Khan who was away in Patna to attend the meeting of Bihar State Wildlife Board.
Last month, the Bombay High Court's Nagpur Bench admitted a petition that sought a stay on plans to kill the tigress and instead capture her alive. Wildlife activist Jerryl A. Banait contended that instead of killing her, which will orphan her cubs, the Forest Department should capture her alive, as per the Supreme Court orders on September 11.
Bengaluru-based activist Prerana Chakraborty said the tiger is being wrongly labelled as a ‘man-eater’.
“There is no proof that the tiger has eaten 13 people. Also, the animal had not left the forest, so it is the man’s fault for entering their territory,” she said.

Rotherham child sexual abuse: Gang of seven guilty
A teenage victim of a Rotherham sex gang convicted today told their trial she had sex with ‘at least 100 Asian men’.
Seven men were found guilty on Monday of sexually exploiting vulnerable teenage girls, following a huge National Crime Agency investigation.
During their trial at Sheffield Crown Court, one complainant said she had sex with dozens of Asian men before she was 16.
(Top row left-right) Iqlak Yousaf, Nabeel Kurshid and Asif Ali and (bottom row left-right) Mohammed Imran Ali Akhtar, Salah Ahmed El-Hakam and Tanweer Hussain Ali were convicted. (PA)
Another victim gave evidence saying she was gang-raped in a forest and threatened with being abandoned there.
The harrowing testimony emerged during the first prosecution arising out of Operation Stovewood, the National Crime Agency’s (NCA) inquiry into historical child sexual exploitation in the South Yorkshire town which has identified more than 1,500 victims.
The jury in the trial which finished on Monday heard how girls, who are now in their 30s, were ‘lured by the excitement of friendship with older Asian youths’ but then sexually assaulted and passed between men.
Prosecutors said the five complainants in the trial were easy to target because they needed to be loved.
Michelle Colborne QC, prosecuting, said: ‘When they were in their teens, they were targeted, sexualised and, in some instances, subjected to acts of a degrading and violent nature at the hands of these men who sit in the dock.’
She said: ‘None of them had the maturity to understand that they were being groomed and exploited.’
The prosecutor said they ‘believed sex of some kind or other was a necessary price for friendship’.
The jury of nine men and three women was told how girls were given alcohol and drugs before they were passed between men in the town.
‘They each suffer the emotional effects of that abuse to this day,’ Ms Colborne said.
The prosecutor said: ‘The girls were enthralled by older, Asian men, men who had cars and seemed exciting to them.
‘They thought they were living the high life.’
Ms Colborne said they were ‘frequently in cars stopped by the police but this did not deter the abusers’.
This investigation was set up in the wake of the 2014 Jay Report which laid bare the shocking scale of exploitation in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013 and failure of police and social services to intervene.
The seven men who were convicted on Monday were told by Judge Sarah Wright they will be sentenced on November 16.
They were all remanded in custody.
The convicted men:
Mohammed Imran Ali Akhtar, 37, of Godstone Road, Rotherham, was found guilty of one rape, one charge of aiding and abetting rape, three indecent assaults, one charge of procuring a girl under 21 to have unlawful sexual intercourse with another and one sexual assault.
Nabeel Kurshid, 35, of Weetwood Road, Rotherham, was found guilty of two rapes and one indecent assault.
Iqlak Yousaf, 34, of Tooker Road, Rotherham, was found guilty of two rapes and two indecent assaults.
Tanweer Ali, 37, of Godstone Road, Rotherham, was found guilty of two rapes, two indecent assaults and one charge of false imprisonment.
Salah Ahmed El-Hakam, 39, of Tudor Close, Sheffield, was found guilty of one rape.
Asif Ali, 33, of Clough Road, Rotherham, was found guilty of two indecent assaults.
Ajmal Rafiq, 39, of Warwick Street, Rotherham, was acquitted of all charges.
An eighth defendant, who cannot be named, was found guilty of two rapes.

Mumbai Motorman 'Hero' Slows Down Busy Train, Saves The Life Of A Stray Dog On Railway Track
A local train at Mulund station almost came to a halt as an adamant dog refused to leave the railway tracks. According to media, the dog accidentally jumped off the platform during peak hour on platform number 2 of the station.
As per a Twitter video that has gone viral, heroic Motorman G.S Bisht saw the dog roaming near the tracks and stopped the train at the eleventh hour just before it entered the station. The dog refused to budge but after repeated honking and moving the train slowly forward, the dog could be seen running away from the train's path. People were quick to laud motorman's humanitarian gesture.
According to local media reports, all the railway officials at respective platforms have been instructed to neither allow any stray animal to jump onto the tracks nor cross the line near the platform.
Many railway trains pass through the forest corridor which kills animals on a daily basis which are venturing nearby. While activists have been complaining against the construction and development of railway tracks near forest areas, as it disturbs their natural habitats, train drivers have been instructed to drive slowly to avoid any mishap.
Every year hundreds of dogs, tuskers and cows get killed on railway tracks in India. In September this year, the media reported that around 245 cows were mowed down by speeding trains. In April this year, a herd of healthy elephants were killed to death as a train ran over them in Odisha. Death on railway tracks was the third biggest cause behind the death of majority of animals in Odisha.
It's therefore great to see this rare act of kindness and mercy shown towards animals who veer off onto railway tracks.

Twitter Will Now Publicly Shame Users Who Post Offensive Tweets
Twitter’s new policy changes will help users understand when the social network has taken any action against a particular tweet or account.
Twitter is making a few changes to the policy that dictates how a tweet that has violated Twitter’s terms of service is handled. This is the latest move, in a long line of measures, that are designed to clean up the content that is being shared by users on the platform, after a history of criticism for not having been able to clean up its act.
The biggest update to the policy is about how Twitter will now handle tweets that are reported. If a user, or many users, report a particular tweet as something they find offensive or troublesome, Twitter will as always run it through various parameters to see if its violates the Twitter Rules policy guidelines. If it does, the contents of the tweet will be blocked with the message "This tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter rules." Thus far, whenever Twitter took action against any particular post, it wasn’t always clear to other users. “We're adding new notices to make it easier to see when we've taken enforcement action on a Tweet,” says the company’s official statement.
In fact, the next big measure is that unless the person takes action on a reported tweet and deletes it, they will be barred from publishing any new tweets till they do so. Additionally, the message will be displayed for 14 days post the action of deleting the tweet, so that any of the offending account’s followers know that an offensive tweet was posted and successfully reported. This will be visible on twitter.com, the user’s profile and any third party apps you may be using to access Twitter.
The other change deals with what happens to a post that you may have reported to Twitter. Considering you have just reported it for being offensive, for being spam or even for being abusive or bullying for instance, you may not necessarily want to see that tweet on your timeline. Twitter will now hide tweets that you report, with the message "You reported this tweet." If you still want to take a look at that tweet in question at some point of time, there is the “view” option that you need to tap on to do so.
These updates are a part of the changes being rolled out by Twitter, to better deal with offensive posts, fake news, hate speech and online bullying. Just last month, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has mentioned during the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that the social media company was working on better transparency measures, including a report for suspended Twitter accounts.
Twitter says these policy changes are rolling out now, and will be available to all users over the next few days.
Brave Mom Becomes Human Shield For Her Baby As Glass And Hail Smash Through Her Car Window
Moms are a force to reckon with, especially when it comes to their kids. So, when giant hailstones smashed the window of her car, exposing her baby to glass and ice, this mother decided to use her own body as a shield to protect her.
Fiona Simpson was driving in Kingaroy with her baby and grandma when the tornado hit. The hail was so intense that it smashed her car’s glass.
“(The window) just blew out all in one go, just glass went everywhere in the car, so I just took off my seatbelt, climbed through the back and just laid on top of her, hoping to wait the storm out,” Ten Daily quotes her as saying.
Fiona seriously bruised her arms and her back as the hail pounded on her. Some reports even claim that the hailstones lashing southern Queensland were as big as tennis balls.
"I couldn’t focus on the pain, all I could focus on was just laying over the top of her and protecting her from the hail, there wasn’t really time to worry about anything else," she said on.
The tornado proved to be very destructive as it uprooted trees, razed houses to the ground and cut off the power.
Fiona’s baby suffered a head injury, despite her best efforts to shield her from the hail. In her latest Facebook post, Fiona wrote ‘Thought I’d let everyone know that Clara and I are safe at home. Grandma is recovering in hospital and will be home soon.’

Mariam, who is the youngest of the three lives with her parents in the al-Zaitoun neighbourhood of eastern Gaza city and she is taking care of eight cats.
"I cannot remember when we started [fostering strays] because cats have always been part of our family," Mariam tells MEE. "We were brought up in a house where our parents always helped and adopted stray cats, and we grew up to do the same thing."
“My parents and sisters cannot afford to feed 35 cats every day, they can barely feed us,” said Mariam al-Barr. Mariam who studied from the Islamic University of Gaza wants to become a teacher but is yet to find the job.
"Whenever I am going to the course and see a hungry or injured cat, I forget about the class and take it immediately to my house," she says.
It all started when Mariam once found an injured cat on the pavement near her home. The cat seemed to have been hit by a car, Mariam took care of the cat and after one week, she found one family who was interested in adopting the cat.
They also take care of the medical expenses of the cats
"We have a wide network of family members, friends and neighbours who sometimes call us and ask if we have cats for adoption. But we do not give any cat up for adoption until we make sure they will take good care of it,” she explains.
Raesa, 42, and Elham, 45-the two sisters live in two separate small apartments in the same building and they help Mariam by keeping the rescued cats on the rooftop. The rest live in apartment where their children and spouse take care of the cats.
Raesa al-Barr has raised her children to show compassion for weak animals
Raesa teaches her five children to protect cats from other residents who at times mistreat them.
"I raise my children the way my parents raised me and my siblings: to be compassionate and help weak creatures," the 41-year-old housewife tells Middle East Eye. "When they go to sleep, all my children cuddle the cats they rescue instead of teddy bears."
Raesa's husband, Suhail Zoho, shares her passion and usually helps her feed, bathe and care for the cats.
"My husband has always supported and nurtured my passion for helping cats. He often brings me cats as gifts and treats our cats as if they were our children," she says. "A few months ago, he [adopted from a friend] a Persian kitten as a surprise gift for me because he knows I love them."
It’s indeed a great job done by the sisters in the city which frequently remains under shelling and firing.
The world's oldest barber is 107 and still cutting hair full time
Anthony Mancinelli shook out a barber towel and welcomed the next customer to his chair in Fantastic Cuts, a cheery hair salon in a nondescript strip mall, about an hour’s drive north of New York City.
“Hey, paisan — same as usual,” said John O’Rourke to Mancinelli, who began layering O’Rourke’s hair with his steady, snipping scissors.
“I don’t let anyone else touch my hair,” said O’Rourke, 56, of Cornwall, New York. “The guy’s been cutting hair for a century.”

Actually, O’Rourke was off by three years. Mancinelli is 107 and still working full time, cutting hair five days a week from noon to 8 p.m. He has been working in barbershops since he was 11. Warren Harding was in the White House.
In 2007, at a mere 96 years old, he was recognized by Guinness World Records as the oldest working barber. Since then, the commendations have rolled in — from local civic groups, elected officials and barbering companies — all congratulating him: 100 years, 101, 102 and so on.
Mancinelli just keeps outdating the awards.
The salon’s speakers were playing hip-hop on a recent afternoon. “He’s used to the windup record players,” O’Rourke teased.
Mancinelli has a trim build, a steady hand and a full head of hair, albeit snow white. He spends much of his day on his feet, in a pair of worn, cracked black leather shoes.
“People come in and they flip out when they find out how old he is,” said the shop’s owner, Jane Dinezza.
“He never calls in sick,” she said. “I have young people with knee and back problems, but he just keeps going. He can do more haircuts than a 20-year-old kid. They’re sitting there looking at their phones, texting or whatever, and he’s working.”
Asked — for the umpteenth time — about his longevity, Mancinelli offered only that he has always put in a satisfying day’s work and he has never smoked or drank heavily.
But no, longevity does not run in his family, and he was never big on exercise. Dietwise, he said, “I eat thin spaghetti, so I don’t get fat.”
He has all his teeth and is on no daily medication. He has never needed glasses, and his hairstyling hands are still steady.
“I only go to the doctor because people tell me to, but even he can’t understand it,” he said. “I tell him I have no aches, no pains, no nothing. Nothing hurts me.”
One reason he continues to work, he said, is that it helps him stay busy and upbeat after the death of his wife of 70 years, Carmella, 14 years ago. He visits her grave daily before work.
Mancinelli lives alone, not far from the salon in New Windsor. He drives to work, cooks his own meals, watches television — he is a big pro-wrestling fan — and is adamantly self-sufficient. He still trims the bushes in his front yard with no help.
“He won’t even let anyone sweep up his hair clippings,” said his son, Bob Mancinelli, 81, who noted that his father even gives haircuts to himself.
As Dinezza observed, “he shops for himself, does his own laundry, pays his own bills — it’s crazy. He’s just in the right state of mind.”
“You hear about all these people asking, ‘What medicine can I take, what food can I eat, what anti-aging cream should I use?’” she said, “and he’s doing it with none of those things.”
As hairstyles have changed over the decades, Anthony Mancinelli has adapted. “I cut them all,” he said, “long hair, short hair, whatever was in style — the shag, the Buster Brown, straight bangs, permanents.”

Some customers have been coming to him for well over 50 years, having gotten hundreds of haircuts.
“I have some customers, I cut their father, grandfather and great-grandfather — four generations,” said Mancinelli, who has six great-great-grandchildren.
His son said: “Some of his older customers, he helps them in the chair. He’ll say to an 80-year-old guy, ‘Listen, when you get to be my age. …’ They love hearing that.”
Jen Sullivan, a stylist who works the chair next to Anthony Mancinelli, is all of 20.
“It’s just amazing that he still works full time,” she said. “Weekends here can get crazy — even I get tired of being on my feet — but he just keeps going.”
Mancinelli said he was born in 1911 near Naples, Italy, and emigrated with his family when he was 8, joining a relative in Newburgh, New York. He was one of eight children — “I’m the only one left” — and went to work at age 11 in a local barbershop. By age 12, he was cutting hair and dropped out of high school to cut hair full time.
Back then, a haircut cost 25 cents, he said. Now, a haircut from Mancinelli costs $19.
He no longer practices the medical techniques he learned early on from older barbers, such as burning off warts, placing heated glass cups on the torso and using leeches for swelling or high blood pressure.
He does keep in his salon drawer — “for when the electricity goes out” — a pair of manual hair clippers he used before electric hair clippers came into use.
He is the perennial choice for grand marshal of the New Windsor Memorial Day Parade. A World War II Army veteran, Mancinelli has been a proud member, for 75 years, of local American Legion Post 1796, where his drink of choice is a whiskey sour.
For Mancinelli’s birthdays, the salon closes and gives a party, with food donated by the local supermarket. But most days are routine, interrupted by the occasional media inquiry seeking out this centenarian barber.
The write-ups have attracted curious people from all over the world for haircuts. Actor Ben Gazzara came up 10 years ago from Manhattan for a haircut, on the advice of a friend, Mancinelli said.
Dinezza hired Mancinelli several years ago after another local shop cut back his hours. Her receptionist initially disregarded his application because of his age, but Mancinelli applied again, and impressed Dinezza with his cutting ability.
“Now, I feel like I’m working for him,” she said. “I get a million and one phone calls from people all over the world who have heard about him and want to visit.”
Next up in his chair was another regular, Joe Murphy, 46. He recalled getting a haircut on Mancinelli’s 100th birthday at his previous shop. (This reporter decided to take a bit off the sides as well.)
“The guys in the shop wanted to take him to a girlie joint for his birthday,” Murphy recalled, as the 107-year-old barber toweled his neck clean. “But Anthony said, ‘No way — what are you trying to do, kill me?’”
