Strippers would wear license with their real name and number

http://www.star-telegram.com

Rep. Bill Zedler has filed a bill to require employees at sexually oriented businesses to get a license and display it while working. The conservative lawmaker said he hopes the measure, if it passes, might encourage women to find another line of work. "They won't want to get a license as a stripper from the state of Texas," Zedler said of his legislation. "I think it would keep a lot of girls from getting involved in that lifestyle and basically wrecking their lives. "This will force everyone to clean up their act," he said. "Overall, it will be a benefit to everyone concerned."

How ride-share services skirt taxi rules

http://www.sfgate.com

The fuzzy pink mustache strapped to the car's front grille is a bit puzzling - and maybe a bit obnoxious - but it's not just for decoration, thankfully.

Cars sport the accessory to show they're official drivers for Lyft, a rideshare service that bills itself as your friend with a car - if you summon your friend with an app.

http://www.mlive.com

13 year old saves up $1,200 to buy a hot dog stand to help his family out. He files all the necessary paperwork, he gets a vending permit, gets permission from the property owner on where he is to set up his stand just to be shot down by city hall.

Duszynski was told by city officials that "his cart was in violation of a Holland zoning law that protects existing food businesses downtown against competition from mobile food vendors, and he would have to cease operation immediately."

Advocating Paleo = Practicing Nutrition Without a License (in NC)

http://www.carolinajournal.com

Steve Cooksey never thought he'd wind up in hot water with the North Carolina Board of Dietetics for merely running a blog documenting his personal successes in combating diabetes with a paleo diet, but now he's facing fines, loss of his domain name, and 120 days in jail. Why? Because he passed out business cards with his URL at a talk which advocated the diet that previously kept Cooksey dependent upon drugs—a talk given someone who had been licensed by the state.

California Porn Clinic Is Denied a License by the State

http://news.yahoo.com

A sexual health clinic in the San Fernando Valley - the Hollywood of pornography - has been denied a license to operate as a community clinic by California's Department of Public Health. The clinic, which is run by the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation (AIM), is used by straight-porn producers to test actors for sexually transmitted diseases before filming. Many onlookers say it has to do with an October 2010 incident in which a "crossover" porn performer - who participated in both gay and straight porn - tested positive for HIV at AIM.

Michigan Considers Law to Register Journalists

http://www.foxnews.com

A Michigan lawmaker wants to register reporters to ensure they’re credible and have “good moral character.”

State Sen. Bruce Patterson is introducing legislation that will regulate reporters much as the state regulates hairdressers, auto mechanics and plumbers. Patterson, who also practices constitutional law, says the general public is being overwhelmed by an increasing number of media outlets -- traditional, online and citizen generated -- and an even greater amount of misinformation.
