Priest has no problem worshipping God and Elvis

Priest has no problem worshipping God and Elvis

Tue Oct 16, 9:47 AM ET

SORBO, Italy (Reuters) – Romanian-born Antonio Petrescu believes you can worship God and Elvis at the same time: as a Catholic priest and Elvis Presley impersonator, he finds his spiritual inspiration in the late rock legend.

“People ask me ‘How can you reconcile Elvis impersonations with your choice of professional work?'” said Petrescu, who puts on his glittery suits and swivels his hips when not working as a parish priest in the Italian town of Avezzano.

Interviewed by Reuters on a church visit to the tiny town of Sorbo — population, 52 — in southern Italy, the priest said he believes Elvis is an appropriate inspiration for Christian worship because he sang of “love in general.”

The 34-year-old’s Web site (www.antoniupetrescu.com) has two separate entries — one for the priest, another for the artist, which talks about his “fiery voice” and discography including the singles “Lovin’ Arms” and “Reach out to Jesus.”

The pop doesn’t stop at Elvis: Petrescu also incorporates the lyrics of singers like Celine Dion into his sermons.

Petrescu feels his responsibility as a priest is to “walk this Earth in love for Jesus Christ,” a task in which he is inspired by Elvis’s “search for spirituality in his own life.”

This is an about 20 years old commercial coming from Ivory Coast – watch out for the great choreography!

Translating from French : “Don’t kill moskitoes by slapping your cheeks-ouch-slaps on your feet-ouch-Super timor is here!”
“Super Timor is even stronger with its new formula, by the time they smell Super Timor’s odor, the bugs are already dead”

Mugging victim thwarted with milk crate
Mon Oct 15, 2007

A 31-year-old man has been charged with assault after allegedly using a milk crate to help a woman steal a mobile phone from a man in inner Sydney.

Police say the 20-year-old victim was talking on his mobile phone on Oxford Street yesterday afternoon, when a woman knocked the phone from his hand and walked off with it.

The man told police he was hit in the head by another man with a milk crate when he tried to get his phone back.

He was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital for a cut to his head and was later released.

Police are still looking for the woman involved.

Vodka drip saves poisoned Italian, and no hangover

Vodka drip saves poisoned Italian, and no hangover

Sydney, Australia
10 October 2007 09:11

Australian doctors used an intravenous feed of vodka to keep an Italian tourist alive after he consumed large quantities of a poisonous substance.

The 24-year-old man, in an apparent bid at self-harm, had swallowed ethylene glycol, found in antifreeze, which can cause death. Doctors administered pure alcohol, the conventional antidote, but exhausted the hospital’s supply.

Desperate to continue the treatment the doctors at Mackay Base Hospital in Queensland state hooked up an intravenous feed of vodka, hospital officials said.

“The patient was drip-fed about three standard drinks an hour for three days in the intensive care unit,” Dr Todd Fraser said in a statement on Wednesday.

“Fortunately for him he was in a medically induced coma for a good portion of that. By the time he woke up I think his hangover would have well and truly gone,” Fraser said.

“The hospital’s administrators were also very understanding when we explained our reasons for buying a case of vodka.”

The Italian man was treated in the hospital two months ago and has since made a successful recovery. News of his treatment was only released on Wednesday.

Japan’s cyber-suicide trend takes bizarre twist

Japan’s cyber-suicide trend takes bizarre twist

Police in Japan have arrested a man on suspicion of murdering a woman who had paid him to kill her after contacting him through the internet.

Kazunari Saito allegedly fed a large quantity of sleeping pills to his victim, Sayaka Nishizawa, before suffocating her at her apartment in April, local media said.

Nishizawa, 21, had contacted her killer days earlier via his mobile phone website, which he had set up to sell sleeping pills to people who were contemplating suicide.

But in a bizarre variation on Japan’s cyber-suicide trend, Nishizawa reportedly paid Mr Saito 200,000 yen to kill her, imploring him to stay with her until he was certain she was dead.

Police initially attributed her death to suicide, but launched a criminal investigation after noticing that her keys and mobile phone were missing. They tracked Mr Saito down after examining Nishizawa’s email correspondence.

Reports said the woman had sent a message to Mr Saito’s website in early April, saying: “I want to die. How can I die?”

Mr Saito, an electrician, replied: “I will give you lots of sleeping pills. I will help you.”

Mr Saito, 33, allegedly visited her apartment in Kawasaki, near Tokyo, in mid-April and fed her 20 to 30 sleeping pills before suffocating her with a plastic bag. Her body was discovered by her father four days later. It was not immediately clear why Nishizawa had wanted to die.

Mr Saito confessed to the killing while being questioned about illegally supplying sleeping pills to other visitors to his website.

“She asked me to do it,” he was quoted as saying. “She asked me to watch over her until the end, so I killed her.”

He set up the website in June 2006 and continued to post messages up to 10 days before his arrest. He offered to “do anything” for money, including murder and drug-assisted suicide, and asked users to email him on his mobile phone.

Websites aimed at people contemplating suicide first appeared in Japan about five years ago. Although people who kill themselves together after meeting online account for a tiny proportion of the 30,000 Japanese who commit suicide every year, police are disturbed by the apparent appeal of the websites to young people and women.

In March last year, the bodies of nine people “most of who were in their 20s” were found in two suspected group suicides in the space of a week.
