Sometimes almost literally. Depending on whom you talk to, adult entertainment business – porn – is anywhere from a $1 billion to $50 billion-a-year industry. Jack Kyser, the chief economist for the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp. and a member of the Wednesday’s panel, says it’s probably somewhere around $4 billion. It employs about 6,000 people directly, such as actors and production workers, and countless others indirectly, such as vendors who sell items for use in production to those employed in plastic surgery and other body-part enhancement. Some of these people are your neighbors, your acquaintances, the people standing in line with you at Ralphs or sharing the spinning class at the local gym. This year the Daily News decided to stop ignoring this enormous industry and start treating it like any other business community. To that end, reporters Brent Hopkins and Beth Barrett undertook a multipart series in June examining the industry, the players, the problems, the warts and all. Last week’s panel discussion was part of this effort to bring pornography out of the shadows and look at it through an economic filter. What if you held a panel on the city’s porn industry and no one showed up? The answer is: Don’t be silly. Of course people will show up. And they did Wednesday night, when I moderated a panel discussion on the local porn industry for the Zocalo public lecture series at the Armand Hammer Museum. The joint was jumping. Surely some of the people were there to get a glimpse of panelist Nina Hartley – one of the best-known adult-film actresses. But there was also a genuine interest in hearing about this multibillion-dollar industry centered in the San Fernando Valley that rarely gets talked about. For many of us, the film “Boogie Nights” constitutes our entire knowledge of this industry. City Hall falls all over itself to make sure Hollywood stays in the vicinity of Hollywood. But though porn productions pump an estimated $120 million directly into the local economy – and much more nondirectly – you never see the mayor doing press conferences about how his office is taking steps to keep this unique L.A. business in town with filming incentives. (Wouldn’t it be fun if he did, though?) Like many media-based businesses, porn has its share of the usual problems. The rising cost of doing business in Los Angeles, competition from Internet amateurs, pirating, viewers who don’t want to pay for content. (In the news business we know a little something about people not wanting to pay for content.) But porn has some pressures that the typical entertainment business doesn’t have. For one thing, the moral ambivalence of society that consumes porn in huge quantities but barely tolerates the industry’s existence. There are fears that more conservative courts might start re-examining what obscenity means. The FBI this year began increased scrutiny into record-keeping of pornographic productions to make sure no one under 18 is employed. Locally, county health officials are at odds with the the industry for trying to get condom-only sex in adult films and STD screening and reporting regulations. The pressure goes deeper than that. As a measure of how touchy the subject of adult entertainment is in tolerant L.A., just organizing the event meant negotiating some hot political land mines. The Armand Hammer Museum was happy to host the talk at its Westwood location. Lucky for us. Other regular Zocalo venues were skittish about hosting an event with such prurient content. You can’t blame them. An entire industry exists specifically to oppose pornography, or smut. Many people possess deeply held convictions about pornography and its social costs, and some express them in ways that are, shall we say, extremely passionate. Since there are so few forums to talk about porn, I wasn’t surprised to get interest from people not invited to participate. Most notably the Los Angeles County Health Department, which contacted me months after I had confirmed the panelists with a request to add a representative on the panel so it could discuss its big issue: condoms and sexually transmitted diseases among adult-film performers. Why not, I thought. I don’t like large panels, but one unassuming bureaucrat can’t hurt, and I hastily agreed. That was my mistake. After talking with other panelists, I worried this would devolve into a heated and possibly nasty debate about condom legislation and other STD esoterica, and derail the larger overview I was trying to sketch in just one hour. I rescinded the offer. It’s a worthy topic – but one for another day, with a crowd expecting such a discussion. I thought that was the end of it. But just hours before the event, a small circle of enthusiastic fans of the official made abusive calls to me, Zocalo officials and even my colleague at the Daily News demanding the guy be included in this panel. It was silly, but it showed that there are so few forums for discussing the sex-film trade and all its associated costs and benefits that people with something to say are desperate to be included. In the end, though, everyone got to have their say during the Q&A session, and the event went fine. Only one person was escorted from the auditorium after she started shouting questions out of turn, with abusive tone and obscenity. I don’t have strong feelings about porn one way or the other. I don’t consume it, and my notions of free speech are pretty broad. But as a journalist and an Angeleno, I just want to know more about this industry that’s so intricately intertwined with L.A. And maybe you won’t admit it, but I bet you do, too. Mariel Garza is a columnist and editorial writer for the Los Angeles Daily News. She blogs at www.insidesocal.com/friendlyfire.

first_img The clinic’s Web site said treatments there include using microwaves to “heat” cancer cells, nutritional supplements, “ultraviolet blood purification” and colonics. Kurt W. Donsbach, a former San Diego chiropractor, opened the clinic in 1987. In 1988, the U.S. Postal Service ordered him to stop claiming that a solution of hydrogen peroxide could prevent cancer and ease arthritis pain. In 1997, he was sentenced in San Diego federal court to a year in prison for smuggling more than $250,000 worth of unapproved drugs into the United States from Mexico, according to court records. “I know of nobody who has engaged in a greater number and variety of health-related schemes and scams,” Dr. Stephen Barrett of Allentown, Pa., wrote on his Web site that tracks health fraud, www.quackwatch.org. Donsbach did not respond to repeated interview requests. However, on the Web site he defends his work and says that if the definition of “quackery” is the practice of nonconventional forms of healing, “I proudly proclaim myself a `quack!”‘ 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN DIEGO – Like thousands of other desperately ill Americans, Coretta Scott King was apparently hoping for a medical miracle when she crossed into Mexico. For a half-century, patients have flocked to clinics south of the border for treatments that are shunned, prohibited or regarded as outright quackery in the United States. Among the treatments offered: blood transfusions from guinea pigs, colon cleansings, and the zapping of cancer cells with electrical current. Supporters say the clinics offer an alternative – and sometimes a cure – to people written off by U.S. doctors. Critics say the worst of the clinics do nothing but offer false hope while taking money from people when they are most vulnerable. “Were patients to return from Mexico cured and doctors saw the unbelievable, positive results, we would pursue it, but we just don’t see it,” said Dr. Jack Lewin, chief executive of the California Medical Association. “We don’t have patients coming back with miraculous cures.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card On Thursday, the clinic where the widow of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. died this week was shut down by Mexican authorities. Mexican state officials said the clinic had been carrying out unproven treatments and unauthorized surgeries, employed people who were not properly trained, did not follow proper procedures for treating terminally ill patients, and failed to meet sanitary requirements. The clinic’s director has a criminal past and a reputation for offering dubious treatments. But its assistant administrator, Cesar Castillejos, defended its record and said he believed the government closed the clinic because of King’s death. King “wasn’t stupid,” Castillejos said. “She was very smart. She wanted an alternative.” The area around the border city of Tijuana is a hotbed for the clinics, with about 35 of them, according to Dr. Alfredo Gruel, health services director from 2000 to 2002 for the Mexican state of Baja California. King, who had advanced ovarian cancer, died before ever getting any treatments at the Santa Monica Health Institute, a beachfront compound in Rosarito, about 16 miles south of San Diego, doctors at the clinic said. last_img

first_imgREPORTSBrian Mc Cormick Cup Semi-Final Milford United 4 St. Catherines 1What transpired in the second half of this match could not have been predicted going on the play in the opening period. For the first forty five minutes the sole talking point was Gary Merritt’s chance which the normally lethal striker uncharacteristically missed. That was soon forgotten however as Paddy Peoples gave Milford the lead ten minutes after the restart when he scored after Joey Cullen had headed on a corner kick into the St. Catherines’ penalty area. Ten minutes later it was 2-0 as Adam Serrinha headed home at the back post. Joey Cullen then played a one two with PJ Hagan and the former calmly slotted past the St. Catherines’ netminder to make it three nil. Darren Mc Laughlin then added a fourth as Milford United completed out-fired St. Catherines who got a consolation goal near the end through Barry Rose. Milford United will now contest The Brian Mc Cormick Final with Castlefin Celtic who defeated Glenea United in the other semi-final.The Saturday League Cup FinalDrumkeen United 2 Glencar Celtic 1 Drumkeen United won this new competition which is for “Saturday League Teams” only.

They defeated Drumbar F.C. in the decider by two goals to one.Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKildrum Tigers 0 Gweedore Celtic 0 Played under near perfect conditions at Station Road both teams battled out to share the spoils. Gweedore started brighter and put Kildrum under a bit of pressure early on and nearly got in behind a couple times due to defensive errors. Kildrum started to come into the game after 15 minutes and started to put a couple of good phases together. Kildrum made a switch after half time and pushed two men up front and started to get a lot of joy. They went close after 60 minutes through Mc Intyre and Cole. They had a great chance after 68 minutes when Crossan pulled back to Cole who rattled the crossbar from close range. Kildrum had another easy chance when Lynch slipped in Brown who saw his shot saved by Mc Kelvey and Colhoun’s follow up was saved on the line by a defender. Kildrum thought they won it in injury time but a great effort by McKinney was saved again. Gweedore battled hard but never created chances and Kildrum will have to rue missed chances for the third game in a rowCappry Rovers 1 Drumoghill F.C. 3Drumoghill F.C. moved a step closer to winning the Brian Mc Cormick Premier Division when they had a 3-1 victory over Cappry Rovers in Cappry Park. The visitors took a fifth minute lead following a corner, Ray Quinn scored from close range. Cappry created a few chances but the visitors defence held firm. Drumoghill increased their lead in the thirty fifth minute when the Cappry defence failed to clear their lines and Pajo Lafferty nipped in to score. Cappry’s Luke O’ Farrell had a free kick which went just over the bar. Drumoghill scored their third goal in the forty second minute when Pajo Lafferty won the ball to score with a low shot to the bottom corner of the net. Cappry put the pressure on in the second half in search of a goal but could find no way past the strong visitors defence. Cappry got a goal back in the seventy second minute when Conor Mc Bride scored following a corner. Cappry pushed looking for a second but to no avail. A team Performance from Cappry. Gerald Mc Granaghan and Phillip White were best for Drumoghill. Referee: Ed. Moore.Brian Mc Cormick Cup Semi-Final Castlefin Celtic 3 Glenea United 2Castlefin Celtic won the first half of this match and went in at half time with a valuable two goal lead thanks to goals from Damien Mc Annaney and JP Malley. Glenea United dominated the second half and with only minutes remaining they had cancelled out the deficit as goals from Lee O’ Brien and Dean Mc Carry put the sides level. Diamond Park was alive with Cup Match fever as extra time looked inevitable. But just as match referee Paddy Martin was checking his watches up popped JP Malley to grab his second goal of the game and send his side through to the Final where they will meet Milford United who came through the other side of the draw and defeated St. Catherines in the other semi-final on Friday night last.RESULTSBrian Mc Cormick Cup Semi-FinalMilford United 4 v 1 St. CatherinesThe Saturday League Cup FinalDrumkeen United 2 v 1 Glencar CelticThe Saturday League Shield FinalDrumbar F.C. 1 v 2 Mulroy CelticBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKildrum Tigers 0 v 0 Gweedore CelticCappry Rovers 1 v 3 Drumoghill F.C.Brian Mc Cormick Cup Semi-FinalCastlefin Celtic 3 v 2 Glenea UnitedFIXTURESSunday 1st May 2016 K.O. 2 p.m.Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionGlenea United v Kildrum TigersKilmacrennan Celtic v Cappry RoversDivision One / Division TwoPromotion / Relegation Play-OffDeele Harps v Cranford United, Diamond Park, Ballyare K.O. 2 p.m.Temple Domestic Appliances Division One2nd / 3rd Place Play-OffConvoy Arsenal v Donegal Town, “The Moss”, Drumoghill K.O. 2 p.m.Wednesday 4th May 2016 7.p.m.Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionCappry Rovers v Kildrum TigersDONEGAL LEAGUE: ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES was last modified: April 24th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe race was the last scheduled open-wheel event at the track. Four caution periods slowed the average speed to 168.567, nearly 40 mph slower than the record pace of 207.151 mph set by Hornish in 2003. In four races at Fontana, the margins of victory total to 0.5142 of a second;The last race in the series for Chevrolet. Scheckter tried to give the red bow tie brigade a win in its finale by leading 80 laps, but was shuffled back to seventh after the last restart with eight laps to go;The end of an emotional tradition that paid homage to the late Greg Moore. Franchitti followed the lead of 2004 winner Adrian Fernandez by burning celebratory burnouts near Turn 2, near where Moore died during the 1999 CART Marlboro 500. “It seemed like a cool thing to do last year,” said Franchitti, who counted Moore among his closest of personal friends. “Last year was completely spur of the moment. This year, I just wanted a couple of minutes to hang out there.” The race came down to the last eight laps after rookie Danica Patrick and Rancho Cucamonga driver Jaques Lazier touched wheels in Turn 4 on Lap 184. Each driver blamed the other for the accident, which occured while they battled for the eighth spot. On the restart, the first six drivers were bunched up less than a second behind Franchitti. He and Kanaan slowly pulled away as Castroneves, 2005 series champion Wheldon, Sharp and Scheckter faded in five laps. “I think we missed a little on the restart gears,” said Scheckter. “That, combined with the fact I had a major push off Turn 2, I couldn’t catch back up to the lead guys.” Kanaan remained right behind Franchitti until the final lap, when Kanaan pushed ahead coming off the last turn. “I think we raced each other pretty hard. Toward the end was a shame,” Kanaan said. “I really don’t know what happened. Either I missed a shift, pressed the wrong button. They reckon I pressed the pit lane speed limit (button) instead of the overtake. “I’m not very happy about it.” Kanaan was a bit unconvincing in his explanation, smiling through every word. “What can I say? People make mistakes,” Kanaan said. Franchitti, a first-time winner at Fontana in seven attempts, said not making mistakes was the difference. “We just struggled with understeer a bit,” said Franchitti, who had an emotional moment with wife Ashley Judd in the winner’s circle. “We slowly worked on that as the day went. We didn’t make any mistakes, and that’s what it came down to. This old engine (Honda) in the back certainly didn’t hurt things. You think a track as big and wide as Fontana, it would be all about horsepower. “But it’s a combination of the two (horsepower and handling). You have to get the car handling right.” As for Kanaan, Franchitti will attempt to get the answer tonight at the championship banquet. “I don’t know, I just know we worked very well together to pull away,” Franchitti said. “I’ll get to the bottom of it. I’ll ply him with alcohol tomorrow and I’ll get the answer out of him. “Tony is a very strange character. Tony is either the most generous guy you’ll ever meet or one of the most selfish, and there’s very rarely a middle ground with Tony.” On Sunday, the disputed middle ground was just short of the finish line. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

If he lifted, I think he would say. I think he’s entirely capable of doing it. “I have to say, I would do the same for him. If the roles were reversed, I would do the same for him. That’s the relationship we have, and have had for a long time.” There was no question Franchitti, the first Indy Racing League driver to win from the pole at Fontana, and Kanaan had the dominant cars in the 200-lap race. They worked together to pull away from Vitor Meira, the third-place finisher who was 0.9880 of a second behind Franchitti.
