Poor baby! There are so many better ways the teacher could have handled that, whether the kid has a disability or not. No child that young deserves that type of treatment. :(

A MAN accused of dumping rubbish outside his house has claimed it is not his fault - and blamed local vandals.

Gary Rostron, 33, from Moorgate Street, Mill Hill, Blackburn, has received a £60 fine from Blackburn with Darwen Council, who said they had evidence to prove that it was his rubbish.

He and other residents of the same housing block have been sent joint warnings about the problem in the past.

But he said there is nothing they can do as he thinks people are deliberately emptying the bins into the street when residents go to work.

"How am I supposed to be able to look after my bins when I go to work?" he said.

"This has been a problem for a while and we have had rats, and the council pest controller has been around a number of times and said there was a serious infestation."

"They've given me 20 days to pay the fine and then they will increase it to £100, so I don't really have any time to get a lawyer or anything."

However, a borough Council spokesman said: "He is welcome to not pay the fine and go to court to contest this matter."

The council's director of regeneration and environment, Peter Hunt added: "People have a duty to dispose of rubbish in a responsible manner.

"Extra bags of rubbish cannot be left in alleyways because it can attract rats, dogs and cats."

He also said the council only collect rubbish on collection day and that it does not take extra bags of rubbish, as residents can go to waste or recycling centres themselves.
Shocking , just shocking

It's anarchy I tell you

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Last week in an operating room in Texas, a wounded American soldier underwent a history-making procedure that could help him regrow the finger that was lost to a bomb attack in Baghdad, Iraq, last year.

Army Sgt. Shiloh Harris is wheeled into surgery for the experimental treatment to regrow what's left of his finger. Army Sgt. Shiloh Harris' doctors applied specially formulated powder to what's left of the finger in an effort to do for wounded soldiers what salamanders can do naturally: replace missing body parts.

If it sounds like science fiction, the lead surgeon agreed.
"It is. But science fiction eventually becomes true, doesn't it?" asked Dr. Steven Wolf of Brooke Army Medical Center.
