Instead he landed in jail. In a sting operation worthy of Hollywood, Mohamed Abdi Hassan was lured from Somalia to Belgium with promises of work on a documentary about high-seas crime that would “mirror his life as a pirate,” federal prosecutor Johan Delmulle said Monday. But rather than being behind the camera as an expert adviser, Abdi Hassan ended up behind bars, nabbed as he landed Saturday at Brussels airport. “(He’s) one of the most important and infamous kingpin pirate leaders, responsible for the hijacking of dozens of commercial vessels from 2008 to 2013,” Delmulle said. Abdi Hassan whose nickname, Afweyne, means “Big Mouth” was charged with hijacking the Belgian dredger Pompei and kidnapping its nine-member crew in 2009, Delmulle said.

A: My core research interests in sex and religion, and theology and sexuality, led over time to a correlative interest in women, their gender representation and history. From a personal point of view, I was influenced by the nuns who taught me: the Dominicans in grade school, and the Ursulines in high school. Both orders have a distinguished history as gifted educators. I grew up in the era of Betty Friedans Feminine Mystique. My mother and her friends and neighbors were college-educated but had left the city workforce to raise families in American House Beautiful suburbs. The nuns who taught me were feminist role models, though I did not realize it at the time. They were highly educated evidently smarter than the parish priests. They instilled an ethic of hard and meaningful work, of social conscience, of a responsibility to develop ones talents not only for a life of purpose, but in service to others. I admired their strong faith, dedication and care, sense of fulfillment and energy. A rare few were genuinely holy people, and there is nothing more attractive. Q: Have social media and the digital era made nuns more approachable rather than mysterious? A: Whether they are nuns in active ministries, visible all over the world, such as the Maryknoll Sisters, or nuns who remain in enclosed, contemplative communities like some Benedictines, nuns are more accessible.

Police said an investigation began after a Food and Drug Administration special agent contacted a Hollywood detective in July. Kogan said Ware was recommended to her. According to a police report, she paid $180 for an anti-aging treatment to reduce wrinkles on her face. The substance was injected throughout her face, including under her eyes, the report said. Initially, Kogan said she was hesitant about the procedure because she asked for reading material about the treatment that Ware could not provide. He told her not to be afraid because he was using “good ingredients,” Kogan said. About the same time Kogan was treated, Sandra Urquiza, of Miami, also was a patient of Ware’s after he advertised a $150 deal on the popular daily deal website Groupon , officials said. She told authorities that she had a natural breast lift procedure intramuscular injections into her breasts during two separate occasions performed by Ware also in February 2012. The report did not indicate whether she had any medical issues because of the injections. The women believed Ware to be a medical doctor, but he wasn’t, police said. Ware, however, is a licensed acupuncturist who wasn’t permitted to perform the type of medical procedures Kogan and Urquiza allegedly received, authorities said.
