DAYS OF LOT – Teacher Porn Case Appealed to Wisconsin Supreme Court After Firing Ruled Unfair

WISCONSIN -A case involving a Wisconsin teacher who admitted to viewing and sharing pornography on school district computers has been appealed to the state Supreme Court after it was ruled that the teacher’s firing was unfair. Andrew Harris was a science teacher at Glacier Creek Middle School in Cross Plains until May 2010. In December 2009, he was placed on paid administrative leave after a fellow teacher lodged a complaint that Harris had showed her a photo of a naked woman. An investigation then ensued, which revealed that Harris had not only been receiving and viewing porn at the middle school—in the form of nude photographs, videos of sex acts and other inappropriate material–for the past nine years, but he had also shared it with other teachers. A month after he was placed on administrative leave, the punishment was commuted to unpaid leave and in May of the following year, Harris was officially fired. However, as the matter turned into a district-wide investigation, officials discovered that five other teachers had also been using district computers to view porn. Two of the teachers, Mike Duren and Gregg Cramer, were suspended, but have since retired. More

Monsanto and Pepsi trying to stop GMO labeling law in Washington state

A Washington state ballot measure to label food featuring genetically modified crops is under fire as food and chemical corporations pour millions of dollars against the campaign. On November 5, voters will head to the polls to decide whether or not to label food containing crops that have been genetically modified, but what started out as a landslide victory in the making has turned into a tight contest amidst massive corporate spending. Supporters of ballot measure I-522 argue that this is an issue of transparency, and letting consumers know when their food contains genetically modified organisms (GMO) would enable them to make more educated decisions. They also say that GMO are not safe for human or animal consumption, and cause environmental problems by promoting the use of certain farming chemicals. Opponents, spearheaded by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), claim that not only is genetically modified food safe to eat, but also that the initiative would mistakenly cause people to think there’s something wrong with products featuring GMO labels. The end result would be that the cost of food at grocery stores would rise and place an unnecessary burden on shoppers. More

Brain Implants Will Connect People To Internet By 2020.

Would you like to surf the Internet, make a phone call or send a text message using only your brain?  Would you like to “download” the content of a 500 page book into your memory in less than a second?  Would you like to have extremely advanced nanobots constantly crawling around in your body monitoring it for disease?  Would you like to be able to instantly access the collective knowledge base of humanity wherever you are?   All of that may sound like science fiction, but these are technologies that some of the most powerful high tech firms in the world actually believe are achievable by the year 2020.  However, with all of the potential “benefits” that such technology could bring, there is also the potential for great tyranny.  Just think about it.  What do you think that the governments of the world could do if almost everyone had a mind reading brain implant that was connected to the Internet?  Could those implants be used to control and manipulate us?  Those are frightening things to consider. For now, most of the scientists that  are working on brain implant technology do not seem to be too worried about those kinds of concerns.  Instead, they are pressing ahead into realms that were once considered to be impossible. More

John MacArthur, You Are Fighting Against God

Dear John MacArthur, As the guy who created the supernatural-centric films Finger of God, Furious Love, and Father of Lights, I realize that I may very well be near the top of your list of “least saved” people, as my movies have reached millions of people around the world with the message that God is active and alive today and is doing all sorts of amazing, outrageous and (gulp) strange miracles, and that it is the primary mission of the worldwide church to love radically while utilizing the gifts of the Holy Spirit both freely and abundantly.  I’m also making a new movie called Holy Ghost which I’m pretty sure you won’t like at all. So I think it’s safe to say that you and I could probably not be further apart regarding the gifts of the Spirit and our dedication to advancing what we think is right throughout the world. We’re both trying to change the temperature of the worldwide church, but the problem is, we’re pushing the dial in opposite directions.  That being said, I wanted to write you to let you know that I agree with you … sort of. I have to admit, when I first read about and then followed along with your conference, it both frustrated and angered me. Not so much because you were calling people like me a liar or a charlatan or even Satan’s puppet. No, I was frustrated because I know, wholeheartedly, that you are wrong on this issue.  You are leading the charge in a cause that, I assure you, is doomed to fail. You are essentially fighting against God on this one, and it saddens me that you want to take the hands of others and lead them down this road. You have decided to turn your back on a large portion of your family because you don’t think they are your family.
You have led a crusade against a vast tribe of Christianity that I used to think were completely insane. I used to be very much like you regarding these things. The charismatic movement made me uncomfortable because they seemed so free, so bold, and so weird. I, like you, wasn’t sure this was entirely from God, but that observation came from someone sitting on the sidelines watching these strange family members acting like weirdos. I hid behind the idea that their behavior defined theirtheology, therefore they could never really be taken seriously. I heard the outrageous claims some of them made and rolled my eyes. I saw many of them focus on the gifts more than the giver of the gifts. But then God called me (through a supernatural event, no less) to make movies about Him, and to write books about Him, and my whole world got turned upside down. I began to realize that the God of the Bible was far bigger, more gracious, patient, and powerful than I ever thought. I was thrown into the very charismatic world which you now demonize. I was no longer on the sidelines, but smack dab in the thick of it. And along the way, I saw a lot of good and a lot of bad.
Over the last 7 years I’ve traveled the world searching for the “more” of God. I have seen some of the best that charismatic Christianity has to offer, as well as some of the worst. Much has already been written about your over-generalizations and straw man arguments against the charismatic movement,but I wanted to say something to this regard that might shock you. You’re right. There are many people, many charismatics and Pentecostals who are about as whacky and goofy as you have described them. People who “toke the Holy Ghost”? Friends of mine. People who “shake and laugh uncontrollably”? Family members. People who “speak in tongues“? Nearly everyone I know. I have sat with leaders of enormous charismatic ministries as they’ve sniped at their spouses. I have seen meetings turn into train wrecks because a speaker or a portion of the audience went overboard in their fleshly exuberance. I have watched leaders stretch the truth from the stage to the point where I was certain it would snap. I’ve seen it all, Mr. MacArthur, the whole messy, ugly, unbiblical underbelly of the charismatic movement.
And guess what? I’m still here.  Because that isn’t all I have seen. I have seen those same ministers caring for orphans and widows. I have seen them kiss the hands of lepers. I have sat with them in the backs of vans and trains and planes as they’ve poured out their heart to me, explained why they do what they do–how Jesus touched them in such a radical way that they can never go back; they can never be the same again. I have looked into their eyes and have seen the love of Christ pouring out. I have three young children and each one is unique, but they all have one thing in common. One minute they can be beautiful and loving and tender to one another, and the next they can be perfect little monsters. As their father, I see the best and the worst they have to offer, yet still I love them. And everyday I go to work trying to move their love needle a little closer to heaven. Their journey towards perfect love, as with all of us, will take a lifetime, and sometimes even that isn’t long enough. But I will never disown them because of their stupidity or their ignorance.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that while you have discounted an entire move of God because you have seen some of the worst it has to offer, there is so much more that you haven’t seen that completely overshadows and outshines even the craziest charismaniac out there. We are members of one family, Mr. MacArthur, and I don’t know about yours, but my family is messy and complicated and beautiful and strange all at the same time.  I’m not angry at you for your conference or your book. In fact, if you’ll let me, I’d love to sit next to you at the banqueting table in heaven and we can make a toast to the King together. I know you don’t think I’ll actually GET to heaven, but that’s fine. I’ll see you there anyway. Because after all, families have to stick together no matter what. Charisma

ATHEIST SHOE COMPANY IS NOW TARGETING GODLESS…BABIES

An atheist shoe company has been providing “soles” for atheists over the past year, but now the secular company is expanding its efforts with a new line of baby shoes. The small business, which goes by the name “Atheist,” is marketing the new concept as providing a service that offers, “Super-comfy, handmade leather shoes for babies — dedicated to the only supreme beings they believe in; Mummies, Daddies and Boobies.” Rather than simply running with the new effort, Atheist has posted it on Kickstarter to see if the concept has enough support among non-believers to integrate it into its business model. The company is hoping to raise £7,000 (about $9,636) and has already raised more than half of its goal. More

EGYPT SET TO MAKE ‘MAJOR CHANGES’ RELATED TO CHRISTIAN CHURCHES

Just three months after the ousting of Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi, it appears Egyptian authorities are taking a big step toward protecting the freedom of worship for the nation’s Christian community by lifting major restrictions on the construction of new churches. Ahram Online reports that the committee working on amending the suspended 2012 constitution on Sunday adopted a transitional article that will nullify current restrictions on the construction of new churches. The 50-member committee adopted another article calling for “absolute freedom of belief” for all Egyptians. To now, Christians — who comprise an estimated 10 to 15 percent of the population — have been required to obtain special presidential permits to construct or renovate churches. There is no parallel law regulating the construction of mosques. More

TEXAS SHERIFF DEFENDS DECISION TO PROVIDE SPECIAL RAMADAN MEALS FOR MUSLIM INMATES

Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez has stepped into some controversy after providing special meals for Muslim inmates during Ramadan, the annual Islamic month of fasting. Pakistani outlet The News reported last week that Valdez acknowledged providing halal meals in Dallas County Jail during this year’s observances between July 8 and Aug. 7. The sheriff spoke of the effort to meet incarcerated Muslims’ needs during her 66th birthday celebration at the home of American Muslim Democratic Caucus co-chair Syed Fayyaz Hassan earlier this month. Local Muslim leaders applauded the move, but some critics have been less than content over the county’s decision to provide specialized foods, KTVT-TV reported. Those in opposition say there should be no extra accommodations for inmates, regardless of religion. More

N.J. SCHOOL DISTRICT BANS RELIGIOUS CHRISTMAS SONGS DURING WINTER CONCERTS

Yet another school district’s decision to crack down on religious Christmas music is already beginning to capture national attention. Just two weeks after Wausau School District in Wausau, Wis., battled over the very same issue and inevitably stepped away from a proposed ban, a New Jersey district has decided that faith-based tunes have no place in public elementary schools. On Oct. 18, Bordentown Regional Schools Superintendent Constance J. Bauer released a brief statement about religious songs on the district’s website. Bauer noted that some of this traditional music was recently questioned and that, after a review, officials have decided to remove religious Christmas songs from winter concerts.  “The matter has been taken under review by the district solicitor, who issued an advisory letter that in light of a New Jersey ruling: Stratechuk v. Board of Education of South Orange-Maplewood School District, 577 F. Supp. 2d. 731 (D.N.J. 2008), that religious music should not be part of the elementary program(s),” she wrote. The case Bauer referenced was one in which a different New Jersey school district previously placed restrictions on religious music in public schools back in 2004. A parent challenged these provisions in court, but as the Associated Press reported in 2010, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia upheld the ban; the Supreme Court refused to hear the case. More

First bitcoin ATM opens in Vancouver, more planned throughout Canada

The world’s first bitcoin ATM opened Tuesday in Vancouver, Canada, dispensing hard money in exchange for the anonymous crypto-currency through a palm-scan security system. The automated teller is set up in downtown Vancouver at Waves Coffee House, making it the first of five ATMs bought by Canadian firm Bitcoiniacs from Nevada-based producer Robocoin. “I think [bitcoins have] the potential to be revolutionary,” Mitchell Demeter, founder of Bitcoiniacs and co-owner of Robocoin, told RT. The machines will exchange bitcoins for Canadian dollars via Canada’s VirtEx exchange. The transactions themselves will be anonymous, the vendor says, but clients will have to identify themselves via a palm scanner first. Demeter said the anonymous nature of bitcoins should not scare those reticent to trust the currency’s validity. More

 

Yellowstone Super Volcano Threatens Two Thirds of USA

The reservoir of lava beneath Yellowstone National Park is at least twice as big as scientists previously thought. Researchers from the University of Utah say the lake of molten rock is at least two-and-a-half times larger than the previous estimate, with pictures showing the reservoir measures 80km long and 20km wide. Reported in Nature, geophysicist Robert Smith said: “I don’t know of any other magma body that’s been imaged that’s that big.” Scientists reported their finding at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America in Denver, Colorado. Yellowstone is the largest supervolcano on the continent and has erupted several times in the last two million years. If it was to erupt today, some scientists predict a cloud of plant-killing ash would affect areas up to 1,000 miles away, with two thirds of the US becoming uninhabitable. Yellowstone is famous for its underground lava lake, which fuels the park’s hot springs. Most of the molten rock likes a few kilometres below Earth’s surface.More

China’s ‘de-Americanized world’ taking shape?

China’s leadership will soon usher in bold reforms to support a domestic consumption-driven economic model, and globalizing the renminbi as an alternative store of wealth to the US dollar is at the center of the strategy. The scathing commentary published by China’s state-owned Xinhua news agency calling for a ‘de-Americanized world’ was undoubtedly music to the ears of many in the developing world. The article – published during the recent fiscal deadlock – accused Washington of abusing its superpower status by engaging in unwarranted military conflicts, engineering regime changes with impunity, and mishandling its status as the issuer of the world reserve currency by exporting risk abroad. Xinhua’s commentary also called for drastic reforms of the IMF and World Bank to reflect the growing muscle of the developing world, and most significantly, “the introduction of a new international reserve currency that is to be created to replace the dominant US dollar.”   The planned reforms led by the Xi Jinping administration in Beijing should be viewed through the lenses of the position taken by this article, with the end goal being the full convertibility and internationalization of the renminbi. More

DAYS OF LOT – Church facing divide over blessings for same-sex couples

The Church of England is facing a split over proposals to offer a formal blessing for gay couples. Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, the former bishop of Rochester, warned on Tuesday that a move to celebrate same-sex relationships in church would be a “red line” for traditionalist parishes. Clergy and lay members of the Church opposed to any relaxation of the rules could reject the authority of any bishops who supported the move, he warned. His intervention came amid mounting expectation that an official commission examining the Church’s teaching on sexuality will recommend the introduction of a formal service for gay couples. Dr Nazir-Ali said: “If there is an attempt to provide for blessing of same-sex unions that will be a red line for many people. “Indeed it may be a red line for some bishops, dare I say.” Speaking after attending a gathering of more than 1,300 traditionalist Anglicans in Kenya earlier this month, Dr Nazir-Ali said the introduction of formal blessings for gay couples would amount to the Church’s leadership failing people who want to “maintain orthodoxy in the faith”. Following this month’s summit, organised by the influential Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans (FCA), a statement backed by 331 bishops urged parishes who believed the Church was undermining “biblical faithfulness” to consider withdrawing their funding. More

David Cameron unveils plans to make London a Mecca for Middle East wealth

David Cameron has announced plans to encourage investment in the UK by Muslim countries, saying he wants to make London “one of the greatest centres for Islamic finance anywhere in the world”. Politicians and business leaders gathered in the capital for the ninth annual World Islamic Economic Forum – the first time the major event has not been held in a Muslim country. The Prime Minister appeared on stage alongside a number of world leaders, including King Abdullah of Jordan and the Sultan of Brunei. Among the measures unveiled was a plan from the Treasury to issue an Islamic bond – or sukuk – worth around £200 million. It would issue fixed returns based on the profit made by a named asset, allowing for Muslims to invest without breaking Islamic laws forbidding interest-bearing bonds. A “world first” set of indices at the London Stock Exchange to help investors identify faith-compliant firms and projects was also announced as well as a £4.5 million boost to a small business growth fund. More

Israel warns of al-Qaida disaster in Egypt

Israel is growing increasingly concerned about the concentration of al-Qaida and other global jihadists in the neighboring Egyptian Sinai Peninsula. Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is questioning the wisdom of President Obama’s reported decision to withhold hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Egypt at a time the Egyptian military is fighting global jihadists in the Sinai, according to Israeli diplomatic sources.  The sources told WND that Netanyahu sent messages in recent days to Egypt’s interim president, Adly Mansou, and Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the country’s defense minister. The messages expressed Netanyahu’s opinion that U.S. sanctions could weaken the Egyptian military’s ability to fight al-Qaida. The sources further stated a recent Israel Defense Force intelligence report has warned the Sinai is quickly turning into a central location for al-Qaida, including reports of large numbers of jihadists moving to the Sinai after fighting the regime in Syria. Some of the jihadists, the report related, are attempting to infiltrate the Gaza Strip. More

JUDGE THREATENS HOMESCHOOLING PARENTS

The parents of four homeschooled children forcibly removed from their home by police armed with a battering ram have now been threatened by a judge with criminal sanctions if they move forward on a plan to move out of Germany.  As WND reported at the end of August the children, ages 7 to 14, were forcibly taken from their Darmstadt, Germany, home by law-enforcement authorities who told parents Dirk and Petra Wunderlich they wouldn’t see the children again soon. The children were returned to their home three weeks later after the parents, given no choice by the federal bureaucracy in Germany, agreed to allow their kids into public schools despite their objection to the decadent social and religious instructions present there. Since then the family has considered its alternatives, including emigrating from Germany where authorities stand today on a Nazi-era law banning homeschooling to a friendlier nation. However, according to a report from the Home School Legal Defense Association, which has been working on behalf of the Wunderlich family, a judge slammed that door. The organization reported a judge who has a hearing scheduled in December for the family “said he won’t let the family emigrate to other European countries where homeschooling is legal.” More

DAYS OF LOT – New bill would legalize civil marriage, extend right to gays

Fresh from the dramatic passage on Monday of the Tzohar bill allowing Israelis to choose their marriage registrar and rabbi, the Knesset is set to take up an even more sweeping reform in Israeli marriage law.  The Yesh Atid faction presented a bill on Tuesday that seeks to legalize, for the first time, non-religious marriage in Israel. Currently, all Israeli marriages are legally valid only if they are conducted in formal state religious institutions, whether through the Jewish rabbinate, Muslim sharia institutions, Catholic canon courts or a handful of other recognized, state-funded religious denominations. This legal situation, inherited from the Ottoman era, has meant that some 300,000 non-Jewish immigrants who have Jewish relatives and are eligible to immigrate to Israel as Jews under Israeli law cannot marry at all, as the rabbinate does not consider them Jews under Jewish law and will not perform a wedding service for them with either Jews or non-Jews. Similarly, non-Orthodox (and, more recently, some Orthodox) converts to Judaism have been unable to marry under Israeli law. More

If Iran Can Get This Reactor Online, Israel May Not Be Able to Bomb It

In the foreground of the nuclear talks between Iran and Western powers that got under way in Geneva this month were centrifuges, yellowcake and enriched uranium — all elements of what Iran calls a peaceful nuclear-energy program and what the West worries is a route to a nuclear weapon. But Iran has also charted a second route, one that could produce fuel for a possible bomb not from highly enriched uranium but out of plutonium, a product of the heavy-water reactor nearing completion in the hills outside the city of Arak, 300 km (190 miles) southwest of Tehran. Heavy water is water with an extra neutron, useful in moderating a nuclear reaction. Because it is not yet up and running, the Arak heavy-water reactor has remained in the background of the nuclear controversy. But it looms larger every day. The reason: once Arak goes online, the option of destroying Iran’s nuclear program with air strikes becomes moot. The reactor is essentially invulnerable to military attack, because bombing one risks a catastrophic release of radioactivity. In the words of Israel’s last chief of military intelligence, Amos Yadlin, who piloted one of the F-16A’s that cratered Iraq’s Osirak heavy-water reactor in 1981 before it was due to become operational: “Whoever considers attacking an active reactor is willing to invite another Chernobyl, and no one wants to do that.” More

SUGAR HIGH? Dow, S&P 500 Finish at Record Highs

The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished at a new high Tuesday as decent corporate earnings boosted shares. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 111.42 points, or 0.72%, to 15680.35. That topped the prior record close seen on Sept. 18. The new high comes as analysts expect the Federal Reserve to say it will continue its extraordinary effort to support the economy after concluding its latest policy-setting meeting Wednesday. Meanwhile, investors also embraced signs of strength in corporate America. Earnings from Pfizer PFE +1.66% and an expanded share repurchase from International Business Machines IBM +2.69% gave the blue-chip index a boost. Dow component Pfizer rose after the pharmaceutical company’s third-quarter adjusted earnings exceeded analysts’ estimates. IBM added nearly 3% after authorizing an additional $15 billion in share repurchases. While the S&P 500 has seen a streak of record highs over the past two weeks, IBM had weighed on the Dow industrials since the company reported disappointing results on Oct. 16. More

10 Signs That Obamacare Is Going To Wreck The U.S. Economy

It is hard to find the words to adequately describe how much of a disaster Obamacare is turning out to be.  The debut of Healthcare.gov has been probably the worst launch of a major website in history, millions of Americans are having their current health insurance policies canceled, millions of others are seeing the size of their health insurance premiums absolutely explode, and this new law is going to result in massive numbers of jobs being lost.  It is almost as if Obamacare was specifically designed to wreck the U.S. economy.  Not that what we had before Obamacare was great.  In fact, I have long argued that the U.S. health care system is a complete and total train wreck.  But now Obamacare is making everything that was bad about our system much, much worse.  Americans are going to pay far more for health care, the quality of that care is going to go down, they are going to have to deal with far more medical red tape, and thousands upon thousands of U.S. employers are considering getting rid of the health plans that they offer to employees altogether due to Obamacare.  If the U.S. health care system was a separate nation, it would be the 6th largest economyon the entire planet, and now Obamacare is going to absolutely cripple it.  To say that Obamacare is an “economic catastrophe” would be a massive understatement. More

Notorious anti-immigration Arizona sheriff wants fleet of drones

Yet another law enforcement agency is looking to acquire a fleet of surveillance drones, but don’t act too surprised. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the controversial lawman from Maricopa County, Arizona, is interesting in adding drones to his arsenal. Arpaio, 81, has made headlines before over his vehement stance against immigration and his thoughts about United States President Barack Obama. Now he’s in the news again, and this time because he wants to bring unmanned aerial vehicles to Maricopa County to protect its almost 4-million residents. ”I want two of these drones, unmanned and of course unarmed,” Arpaio told local network ABC15. The US Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation already have drones on the ready that can be deployed during emergency situations, and dozens of small law enforcement agencies and organizations as of late have applied for permits to control unmanned aerial vehicles in a limited airspace. Now Arpaio wants Maricopa County to be on the list of locales cleared for drone use in certain situations, and he’s hoping an eye-in-the-sky surveillance tool will help stop crime and catch criminals. More

White House considers halt to surveillance of allied leaders

The White House is currently evaluating whether to end surveillance programs allegedly targeting the leaderships of allied nations such as Germany. This follows criticism from Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Senate Intelligence Committee’s chairwoman, who said that she was “totally opposed” to the collection of intelligence on US allies, and said that such surveillance of foreign heads of state would cease immediately. “The White House has informed me that collection on our allies will not continue, which I support – but as far as I’m concerned, Congress needs to know exactly what our intelligence community is doing. To that end, the committee will initiate a major review into all intelligence collection programs,” she said in a statement on Monday. “Unless the United States is engaged in hostilities against a country or there is an emergency need for this type of surveillance, I do not believe the United States should be collecting phone calls or emails of friendly presidents and prime ministers.” The White House said Monday evening that it was conducting an internal review on its surveillance programs, which include the monitoring of allied foreign leaders, to be completed by December.  “We have already made some decisions through this process and expect to make more,” said Caitlin M. Hayden, spokeswoman for the National Security Council. More

New York Doctors resisting ObamaCare

New York doctors are treating ObamaCare like the plague, a new survey reveals. A poll conducted by the New York State Medical Society finds that 44 percent of MDs said they are not participating in the nation’s new health-care plan. Another 33 percent say they’re still not sure whether to become ObamaCare providers. Only 23 percent of the 409 physicians queried said they’re taking patients who signed up through health exchanges. “This is so poorly designed that a lot of doctors are afraid to participate,” said Dr. Sam Unterricht, president of the 29,000-member organization. “There’s a lot of resistance. Doctors don’t know what they’re going to get paid.” Three out of four doctors who are participating in the program said they “had to participate” because of existing contractual obligations with an insurer or medical provider, not because they wanted to. Only one in four “affirmatively” chose to sign up for the exchanges. More

Amid Obamacare signup glitches, thousands head to free clinic event

Organizers of a high-profile annual free clinic in Los Angeles that attracts thousands of uninsured and underinsured patients have hoped that improvements in the nation’s healthcare system would greatly reduce demand for their services. The massive Care Harbor event returns to town this week, amid the rollout of new and shifting insurance options for millions of Californians under the Obama administration’s overhaul of the healthcare system. Once again, thousands showed up Monday at the Sports Arena to secure appointments for everything from mammograms to teeth cleaning — but with new expectations for the future. ”For many of these folks, we hope it’s the last time they’re in this line,” said Howard A. Kahn, chief executive of the public health plan L.A. Care, which co-sponsors the event. As they have for several years, dozens of doctors and dentists will be on hand Thursday through Sunday to serve thousands of patients. Among many of the would-be patients, future insurance coverage was a secondary concern to blurry vision and painful gums. Los Angeles resident Stanley Lewis, 52, hoped to get a crown; Boyle Heights resident Judy Ramos, 55, wanted to get her teeth fixed and a new pair of glasses.
