'BOSTON (CBS) – MBTA Police are searching for three young women who they say threw bleach in the eyes of a bus passenger after robbing him of his money.
The victim was returning home from work early Sunday morning, riding the #28 bus on Blue Hill Avenue through Roxbury, when it seems the trio sized him up.
Officials say one female slapped the man about the head, while one went to work to search him for money.
“One of the women puts her knee on top of his legs so he can’t get up and takes the money from his pockets,” MBTA Superintendent-in Chief Joseph O’Connor told WBZ-TV.
The third suspect tossed the bleach, contained in a water bottle, in his eyes using it as a “cheap weapon,” say police.'

'PITTSBURGH—A new study led by a University of Pittsburgh researcher shows there is a gender gap when it comes to behavior and self-control in American children—one that does not appear to exist in children in Asia.
In the United States, according to the study, girls have higher levels of self-regulation than boys. In China, South Korea, and Taiwan, the study found no gender gap when researchers directly assessed the self-regulation of 3-to-6-year-olds. Self-regulation is defined as children’s ability to control their behavior and impulses, follow directions, and persist in completing a task. The results appear in the most recent issue of the journal Early Childhood Research Quarterly.
“These findings suggest that although we often expect girls to be more self-regulated than boys, this may not be the case for Asian children,” said Shannon Wanless, lead author of the study and assistant professor in the Department of Psychology in Education in Pitt’s School of Education.'

'THE "terrible and very tragic'' deaths of two boys who died after their mother left them unattended in a shower for 10 hours highlights the need for more support for mentally ill mothers, the West Australian coroner says.
Coroner Alastair Hope handed down an open finding today in an inquest into the deaths of Lochlan James Stevens, aged two, and Malachi Isaac Stevens, aged 10 months, in November 2008.
But he made no recommendations because there was a lack of evidence from the boys' mother, Miranda Hebble, who claimed to not remember details from the incident.
The inquest heard she left the boys in the shower while she fetched something and fell asleep or passed out for 10 hours.'

'On Tuesday Julia Gillard ignited a "gender war", today, menugate went some way to justify it.
In a progressive world, her gender should not be an issue – but we are a long way off that being an everyday reality. How far off is best illustrated by a photo doing the rounds taken of a menu at a Liberal fundraiser in March this year, which describes a Moroccan quail dish as: “Julia Gillard Kentucky fried quail – small breasts, huge thighs and a big red box Moroccan carrot salad and sumac yoghurt.”
Gillard warned the issue of abortion would become the "political plaything of men" if Tony Abbott became prime minister, and invited us to imagine him as a man with a blue tie who goes on holidays to be replaced by another man in a blue tie. It seemed an odd request, even for someone who made their international political mark with her much praised misogyny speech.'
Letter here. Excerpt:
'On Tuesday, she played the gender card at the ''Women for Gillard'' launch. It was taped by the PM's office and sequences made available to the media. We got what she wanted us to get. This is not a media angle; it is the PM's message.
One sequence was ''I invite you to imagine it. A prime minister - a man in a blue tie - who goes on holidays to be replaced by a man in a blue tie. A treasurer, who delivers a budget wearing a blue tie, to be supported by a finance minister - another man in a blue tie. Women once again banished from the centre of Australia's political life.'
What is she talking about? Kevin Rudd or Tony Abbott, or is it just plain and simple misandry. Does she want an election between misogyny and misandry?'
Story here. Named "The Black Widow" by the media, she gets off with another light sentence in what should have been attempted murder. Female charging and sentencing discount in full use here:. Excerpt:
'SYDNEY, Nova Scotia — A 78-year-old Canadian woman dubbed the "Black Widow" was sentenced Tuesday to 3 1/2 years in prison for drugging her newlywed husband.
The sentence for Melissa Ann Shepard, who pleaded Monday guilty to administering a noxious substance and failing to provide the necessities of life, will be reduced to two years and nine months because of time served in pretrial custody. Shepard was charged last year after Fred Weeks fell ill at a bed and breakfast while the couple was on a honeymoon.
An agreed statement of facts says Shepard slipped tranquilizers into the 76-year-old man's coffee and he was later taken to hospital. He survived.'
Well as we know, Hillary Clinton is no longer the US Secretary of State. But recall that one of the imperatives of her administration of the State Dept. was to work to end the sexual exploitation of women and girls. Just one article here goes:
'Clinton says preventing the exploitation and marginalization of girls is no longer an afterthought but a core foreign policy objective of the United States, which is co-sponsoring a Security Council resolution on the issue next week.'
This is a good aim. But contrast this with this recent piece of news:
'WASHINGTON — A State Department whistleblower has accused high-ranking staff of a massive coverup — including keeping a lid on findings that members of then-Secretary Hillary Clinton’s security detail and the Belgian ambassador solicited prostitutes.
A chief investigator for the agency’s inspector general wrote a memo outlining eight cases that were derailed by senior officials, including one instance of interference by Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.
Any mention of the cases was removed from an IG report about problems within the Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS), which provides protection and investigates crimes involving any State Department workers overseas.
* A DS agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors.'

'A Houston woman is being accused by authorities of stabbing a man to death with a stiletto heel in a high-rise condo.
KHOU-TV reports that 44-year-old Ana Lilia Trujillo is facing a murder charge.
Houston police investigators say officers responded to an assault in progress call at the condo just before 4 a.m. Sunday.

Police say Trujillo was the only person in the condo when officers arrived.'

'BRIDGEPORT -- A city woman is accused of killing a former lover with her car.
Cherelle Baldwin, 21, of Ash Street in Bridgeport, was arrested Monday and charged with the murder of Jeffrey Brown, 24, and is being held on a $1 million bond.
In the early morning hours of May 18, Baldwin plowed into Brown with a red Pontiac G6, crushing him to death against a garage's cinder-block wall, police said. Brown died of blunt force trauma injuries.
"There was a significant impact when he was struck," said William Kaempffer, spokesman for the Bridgeport Police Department. "The vehicle pushed in the cinder-block wall more than 10 inches."'
