Ever wonder what happened to the remains of the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man when Venkman and the rest of the gang destroyed it by “crossing their streams” in Ghostbusters? Well, it appears they may have fallen through a crack in a New York City sidewalk only to emerge 29 years later all the way over in China! On the evening of May 12, a large amount of an as of yet unidentified marshmallow-like substance was found oozing up out of the ground at an intersection in the Pukou district of Nanjing, China. Reportedly not the best smelling foamy matter in the world (in line with our Stay Puft rotting remains theory!), local residents believe it’s the result of recent large-scale road construction.
Pictures of the mess uploaded to China’s popular microblog website, Weibo, sparked a large amount of interest, and were later picked up and reported on by major Chinese media outlets. Comments on Chinese websites include, “It’s like a pancake,” “It’s Magic!” and “Looks like some kind of alien.”
Police and firefighters who arrived on the scene are said to currently be in the process of cleaning up the billowy froth. It’s reported that some are saying problems such as this one, which have recently started to plague China’s roads, are the result of corner cutting and shoddy workmanship brought about by efforts aimed at reducing labor costs and expenses.
Stay Puft Marshmallow Man leftovers, however, cannot be completely ruled out.
KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C., May 14 (UPI) — Police in North Carolina said they arrested a woman whose alleged Bible-thumping left a woman with bruises and abrasions.
The arrest report said Evelyn Mills Moore, 57, of Kings Mountain struck the other woman “numerous times about her body with a closed fist and striking her with a Bible about her left arm,” the Gaston Gazette reported Tuesday.
The alleged victim was left with bruises and abrasions to her head, face and arms after the Saturday incident, police said.
Moore was charged with assault inflicting serious injury.
She was also charged with a second assault charge inflicting serious injury for allegedly attacking a man and causing abrasions on his head, face and arms.
Police did not reveal the reasons behind the alleged attacks.
Moore was jailed in lieu of $105,000 bond.
Newborn children are often considered treasures that we should take care of. However, for whatever reasons, some think of them as possible sources of income and choose instead to sell these gifts in order to earn money.
A man in India sold his grandchild on Facebook for 70,000 rupees (US$1,278). After his daughter Noor gave birth to his grandson, Feroze Khan, with the help of some hospital staff, he took the baby and was able to give him to his buyer, Amir Kumar. After seeing pictures of Feroze’s grandson via Facebook, Kumar agreed to pay for the baby.
Police learned about the incident after Noor filed complaints that her father sold her son. They immediately launched an investigation and were able to trace the baby in Delhi.
Ludhiana’s Commissioner of Police, Ishwar Singh, said, “We acted upon the complaint of the mother, who alleged that her child was stolen from the nursing home in Ludhiana. After investigations, we found the grandfather of the child had struck a deal with a man in Delhi and had roped-in the nursing staff to smuggle the baby out of the nursing home. We have arrested four people including the grandfather. We have also booked the buyer from Delhi.”
The reason for all this was that Mr. Khan was planning on another arranged marriage for his daughter. He had hoped that his daughter would get an abortion, but the hospital staff did not agree.
An 11-year-old girl found wandering alone and disoriented in China was the victim of horrifying abuse at the hands of her father, it has emerged.
The young girl’s mouth had been stitched up with fishing cord and her head submerged in boiling water, her skin had been pierced with sewing needles, and she had been hung upside down and beaten, according to reports.
The girl, named as Xiao Li, who is now recovering in hospital, has scars all over her body and chunks of hair are missing from her scalded scalp.
Local news reports in China said the girl was talking to herself and occasionally shouting abuse at passersby when a man approached her on May 8.
The man, named as Mr Fu, discovered the girl was missing hair and was covered in scars, a Sky News report said.
Villagers told Mr Fu the girl’s name was Xiao Li, and that she had suffered abuse at the hands of her father, named only as Yang.
Mr Fu contacted police and Yang was arrested. Through a combination of ensuing medical examinations and police interviews with Yang officers have pieced together the nightmare ordeal the 11-year-old girl suffered.
Photographs of the little girl, who was made to kneel on a floor covered in shards of broken glass, reveal fresh wounds alongside scars left behind from old injuries.
Doctors fear she has been malnourished for much of her life, and suspect her hair will never grow back.

The girl’s grandmother has said in an interview that her parents left home to find work shortly after Xiao Li was born.
She was looked after by her grandparents for five years before her father returned and the abuse began.
The grandmother claimed she was aware of the abuse but powerless to stop it, and said her son Yang abused her as well as her granddaughter.
Police in China were made aware of the incident when the little girl’s head was plunged into boiling water.
Yang is said to have told officers he was trying to rid his daughter of head lice. He was ordered to take his daughter to hospital, but police did not pursue the matter further.
The 11-year-old is recovering in hospital in China, where the costs of her medical treatment have been waived.
Government officials in the area say they are seeking guardians to take care of Xiao Li as her grandparents are now to old to care for her, the Sky News report said.
HOUSTON – A 29-year-old mother who suffers from depression and anxiety says she placed a public ad offering to give her 3-year-old son up for adoption because she was off her meds, according to Houston police.
Stephanie Christine Redus was charged with advertising for placement of a child; a misdemeanor.
Police ran across a Craigslist ad seeking a good home for a 3-year-old.
The posting read “Hi. I’m trying to adopt out my 3yr old son. I’m not in a good place in my life and don’t feel like I can care for him properly but I don’t know where to start. If you or know anyone who is interested in caring for him please let me know. I’m a single mom and can’t do this. Thanks, Desperate.”
Craigslist was served a grand jury subpoena ordering the release of the person’s profile responsible for the posting. That profile was matched to Redus.
During a recorded interview on May 9, Redus admitted to placing the ad, but said she never intended to give up her child. The mom said she only spoke to one person, and asked if they had any additional children and requested to see pictures of their home, according to court documents.
Redus was feeling guilty after making her initial statement and returned to the police department on May 13 in order to clear the air.
During another recorded interview, Redus told investigators she was bothered because she did not tell the complete truth. She then said she posted the ad while she was at her job in Humble and that she actually replied to several people about the adoption.
Redus said she is pregnant and has not been able to take her medication to combat her depression and anxiety. The ad, she said, was just a way to help her with her anxiety.
Neighbors were used to seeing the little boy playing with his toy cars and chickens outside his mom’s home in Huffman.
“I see the little boy over there playing in the swimming pool a couple of times and running around in his birthday suit,” said John Kirby.
They were shocked to learn what his mother was accused of doing.
“Blessings from God are always a privilege, not to be put on craigslist,” said Peg Kirby. “Honey, I think you need to talk to the lord before making a decision like that.”
Redus’ bail was set at $1,000. Her son is now in the care of his father.

The Mayan civilization was one of the most advanced and sophisticated cultures in the Western Hemisphere before the arrival of European explorers. Aside from serving as a place to hold sacrificial rituals, the sacred Mayan pyramids were used as landmarks and built high above the jungle to serve as a reminder that the gods were ever present. Many times they had doorways leading to nowhere.
Sitting in the middle of a privately owned sugar cane field was once one of the largest Mayan pyramids in all of Belize. It may have lacked some of the details present in more well-preserved cultural remains of ancient cities, but the head of the Belize Institute of Archaeology, Jaime Awe, said that builders couldn’t have mistaken the 100-foot-tall pyramid mound for an everyday hill.
“It’s a feeling of incredible disbelief because of the ignorance and the insensitivity … they were using this for road fill,” Awe said. “It’s like being punched in the stomach, it’s just so horrendous.”
Authorities detected the destruction of the 2,300-year-old complex last week, when builders began extracting crushed rock from the historical site to build roads. Although the Nohmul complex sits on private land, it is supposed to be protected by the government.
Belizean police are currently conducting an investigation regarding the demolition.
This sacrifice made for the sake of building roads surely has not appeased and nourished the gods.
You’ve probably heard of students getting beaten by their teachers, and for a number of different reasons. However, some stories are different in that the people responsible take their actions way too far. Mr. A is a good example of such behavior.
Mr. A teaches at a coed high school in Seoul, South Korea.
The 55-year-old teacher was arrested for beating a student after discovering that the pupil was listening to music in class. His actions did not stop there, however.
After beating his student, he went outside the classroom, dropped his pants and started masturbating. Apparently, something about hitting the student excited him beyond his ability to control himself.
A spokesperson for the Yangcheon Police department said, “While we are still questioning the suspect, the teacher does not appear to have any mental problems… Mr. A is denying that he touched himself in public.”
After being charged with causing bodily harm to a student and indecent public exposure, Mr. A was terminated.
Update below: Mario Hunt, an assistant teacher and coach at Cahokia High School, is accused of having sexual contact with a minor — while he knew he was HIV positive. The alleged abuse, police say, stems back to 2011 when the victim was seventeen years old.
It’s unclear exactly what his connection is to the victim, but charges say that Hunt, 35, “holds a position of trust authority or supervision” in relation to the minor.
Because he knowingly exposed the student to the virus, he is facing — in addition to criminal sexual assault charge — a transmission of HIV charge as well.
Officials say there could be more victims.
It appears that Hunt, who was an assistant track coach, has been placed on leave.
The charges from the St. Clair County Circuit Court, full document below, say that somewhere between January and June of 2011, Hunt, who lived in Cahokia, “knowingly committed an act of sexual conduct with a male minor.” Those felony charges include oral sex and more.
The charges are all the more serious because he allegedly abused the minor knowing he was HIV positive (though the transmission charges don’t mean that the minor was necessarily infected).
He was arrested yesterday with a $300,000 bail.
KTVI (Channel 2) reports that two additional victims have come forward and that police are also aware of inappropriate social media postings:
And police believe the crimes may have happened at school — during school hours.
Update, 10:30 a.m.: Daily RFT got in touch with Cahokia School District Superintendent Art Ryan, who tells us that school officials learned of the criminal charges yesterday afternoon.
Ryan, however, says that the school was in the process of investigating a complaint of Hunt’s inappropriate social media behavior and texting, brought forward by a mother.
When school officials learned that there was a criminal investigation, they suspended Hunt, he adds.
“We’re shocked,” he says, noting that the HIV-related charges are especially upsetting. “The whole situation is sad and disturbing.”
He says he is not aware of additional complaints from other students but plans to discuss this with the police chief today. He also says he will be sending out a notice to parents today updating them on the situation.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA – Investigators with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department need help finding a man who grabbed a 7-year-old girl while she was out for a walk with her mom in south Sacramento on Saturday.
The girl managed to escape and is OK.
Witnesses described the abductor as between 25 and 35 years old with light-brown skin, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, with black, shoulder-length hair worn either in braids or dreadlocks.
Neighbors said it was at the corner of 47th Avenue and 54th Street where the man grabbed the little girl and threw her in the trunk of his car.
“You can’t be comfortable or safe anywhere anymore,” Audrey Luna said.
That’s how neighbors like Luna have felt since Saturday afternoon when the man pulled up to a mother walking with her daughter and snatched the little girl within seconds.
“This is in broad daylight. Who does a thing like that?” Luna asked.
The kidnapper didn’t get very far. Witnesses said he only made it about a block before his plan hit a major snag.
Christina Covey could hear tires screeching and came running out of her home.
“She [the 7 year old] was laying on the ground when I saw her, but the car was still there, and then she finally got up and came to my husband as I was running out there in the street looking for the car, but he had already hit the corner,” Covey said. “I started talking to her and that’s when she was telling us, ‘he stole me; he stole me.’”
Covey said the little girl explained how she managed to escape from the trunk of the car.
“When he snatched her, he threw her in, and he tried to close it, but he didn’t close it all the way ’cause of her leg, her foot was still there,” Covey said.
Covey and her husband told the girl how proud they were of her and walked her down the block back to her mom.
“She wanted to go back to her mom. She was so worried about her mom. That’s what she kept saying: ‘my mom is worried about me. My mom is worried about me,’” Covey said.
With the victim safe, neighbors turned their attention to the hunt for the kidnapper.
“I was so mad. I just wanted to get the dude and snatch him and kill him. I just wanted to get him,” Covey said.
Investigators said the little girl had what they described as minor scratches, but she was able to escape without any serious injury.
Sacramento police Officer Michele Gigante says investigators were looking at the incident in possible connection to a suspicious incident May 8 at Honor Parkway and Bill Bean Parkway also in south Sacramento. That Wednesday afternoon, an 11-year-old girl told officers a man in a black SUV pulled up to her and told her to get in his car. She ran away.
The man was described as black, in his 20s, with long, black hair.
